Excerpt: The slim C902 comes with a 5-megapixel camera and a selection of imaging options, as well as a wealth of music and video playing features. What we like Boasting excellent build quality, the Sony Ericsson C902 is a slim, metallic phone, with a neat three-band metal edging. While it looks like a standard candybar phone from the front, the top section of the Sony Ericsson C902 slides up to reveal the camera.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson’s Cyber-shot range of mobile handsets come in some trendy designs. As they carry the name of Sony’s digital camera range, the expectation of similar performance is unavoidable. Then again, we have to take into account that we’re not talking about a dedicated device but a multipurpose gadget designed for various needs and requirements. We put the Cyber-shot C902 through some rigorous tests over the last ten days, and here’s our take on it.
Conclusion: Don't let the lack of a Xenon flash put you off: this slimline camera phone is one of Sony Ericsson's finest models to date. And we've dated a few.
Pros: The C902 bucks the chunky camera phone trend by stuffing a five-megapixel camera into a lithe body. The camera itself is a real charmer, capturing excellent print-worthy snaps. You can improve your pics using an array of shortcuts on the touch screen, including face detection, and focusing. You can also geotag your photos with their precise location data pretty simply thanks to the on-board GPS. And did we mention it's got super-speedy HSDPA 3G? No? Well it has.
Cons: The C902 Cyber-shot does sacrifice a full-on Xenon flash to keep its trim figure, relying instead on an LED to illuminate gloomier subjects. That's not as bad as it sounds though, as it's actually pretty powerful. So snappers accustomed to Xenon's bright spark charms shouldn't feel too put out.
Excerpt: Now pay attention 007. Sony Ericsson’s C902 Cyber-shot model was announced some time ago and has already been supplanted by the 8-megapixel C905. But can the Bond edition, released to tie-in with Quantum of Solace, impress? Well first up, let’s clear up what the James Bond limited edition phone is: it’s a "titanium silver" version of the C902 with a preloaded Bond theme - ringtone, trailer for QoS, wallpaper, etc., which all comes on a bundled 1GB M2 card.
Pros: Build quality, HSDPA, Bond content not over the top, great screen quality, reasonable camera performance
Cons: Camera options a bit over the top, no 3.5mm jack, screen too small for mobile internet
Summary: This is the best camera phone in the Cyber-shot family to date. The pictures we've taken are sharp and colourful, and the camera operation is easy and intuitive. It may be missing some of the tech we see in many smartphones, but then, the C902 isn't a smartphone.
Pros: Slim design with a premium handset feel, Best camera in the Cyber-shot range, Geo-tagging, HSDPA Web browsing speeds
Cons: No GPS, No Wi-Fi, Supports M2 memory instead of the more common microSD
Summary: C902 er klassisk og enkel i designet, og vi liker spesielt godt den smarte løsningen med ”skjult” kamera som bidrar til den slanke figuren.
Det flate utseende har imidlertid gått på bekostning av batterilevetiden. Batteriet tømmes ganske raskt, og når vi hadde tatt en del bilder, ringt og sendt noen SMS, opplevde vi at den måtte lades annenhver dag.
Den største svakheten er likevel at den oppleves som litt vel treg.
Pros: Slank, bra kamera, mange kamerafunksjoner, EDGE, 3G og HSDPA
Cons: For treg, svak blitz, litt liten skjerm. For lik forgjengeren?
Summary: W902 er en veldig bra mobil. Spesielt imponert ble vi nok over lydkvaliteten på mobilen, både under samtaler og ikke minst musikk. Men også kameraet beviser at det faktisk er mulig å lage en mobil der det ene ikke må gå på bekostning av det andre.
Ekstra pluss får mobilen også for en knivskarp skjerm, men som gjerne kunne vært litt større. Vi liker dessuten at mobilen er svært responsiv, det går fort å navigere mellom de ulike menyene.
Pros: Bra lyd, bra kamera, knivskarp skjerm, fint design
