Summary: I have used many cell phones over the past years, all I can say about this one it that it's too complicated to operate, too many taps to get to options and menu sometimes does not work. Please don't sell anymore....:(
Excerpt: the worst part of Vivaz U5 is that symbian system , maybe why its made for nokia phones , but there more : the touch screen accurate is not good , even after calibrate , the phonebook (contacts) sucks too, and something important, if you try to take a photo > 6megapixels with others applets running...
Pros: Video recording quality
Cons: Low battery performance, Wireless management, BAD music player, BAD interface overall, Symbian S60, Low memory
Summary: "I feel stupid for sticking with Sony Ericsson" that's how I felt after turning on this phone. I mean after using Xperia X1a, I just thought SE had a lot of catching up to do in the smart phone market. So I was prepared to be wowed by this phone but I can't say I am at all impressed with it.
A good phone if used for the basics but could get quite frustrating if used as a smartphone.

Excerpt: Being due for an upgrade on my mobile contract, and my last three mobile phones being Sony Ericcson handsets, I was offered the Sony Ericcson Vivaz (U5) at a discounted price and thought I would give it a try. It was my first ever touchscreen handset so I wanted to go with a brand I could trust.
Summary: I have always been a fan of Sony Ericsson phones and have had several models over the years but this is a very disappointing product. The camera is the one good point but in my opinion not enough of a selling point, as the basic features are poor.
Excerpt: I've always been a fan of sony ericsson phones, so when the time came that I wanted a touchscreen phone, sony was the way I went. The vivaz is alright aesthetically, its a decent shape to fit in your jeans pocket, its not too heavy, nor is it too flimsy, i've dropped mine a few times and have only...
Overall this phone is hard work as a knowledge of computers in requried to keep it fully funtional.

Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Vivaz looks very smart and is quite enjoyable to use when it is brand new. In the first instances the camera is very good and there are many applications on the phone that make it stand out from the rest.
A stylish phone...but who wants a phone that stops working all the time?

Excerpt: Sony Ericsson Vivaz My old phone had been used and abused, so when my contract came to an end I decided to upgrade to a new phone. The two phones at the top of my list were the Iphone 4 or a Sony Ericsson Vivaz. I decided to go against the Iphone hype and opted for the Sony Ericsson Vivaz.
Summary: ive never been an ericsson lover and after purchasing this phone i've been reminded why. The camera does take pretty good pictures but in the dark you have no chance as the flash on it dosn't flash, you can either have it on constantly or not at all, you cant just have it to flash when you take a...
