Summary: Might a cellphone be possessed? Once you've tried operating a Sony Vivaz phone you might find yourself pondering the possibility that the device contains more than software and megabytes. I have always favored low-to-mid priced Sony Ericsson cellphones for their simplicity, easy but interesting camera features and good reception/sound quality, not to mention durability.
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....
Summary: i loved the phone BUT could not use when battery went low, would NOT charge so i returned it. I you can get your battery to charge it was a nice user friendy phone. I didnt want to learn a new phone but i guess i didnt have to learn everything after all.
Summary: I used this phone, Sony Ericsson Vivaz, one week. The battery was very poor. 1/2 day of normal use, and it was empty. This was a phone I expected much moore from, so I was very disappointed . Earlier I only used Sony Ericsson, but now it will only be Samsung.
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 (such as facebook or twitter) the phone will freeze because of low memory and you need to restart it (grrr !) .
Pros: Video recording quality
Cons: Low battery performance, Wireless management, BAD music player, BAD interface overall, Symbian S60, Low memory
At Last! A Phone I Really Do Not Like. SE Vivaz U5a
15 September 2011
Summary: The Vivaz U5 is astoundingly difficult to work with. The touch screen frequently fails to register touches. This is frustrating and slows down any operation requiring sequential entry such as, oh, a phone number or text message or WiFi network key. I mention this first because apart from turning it on and off, turning the volume up and down and taking a photo everything is done via the touch screen.
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.
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. When texting, the phone, quite often would not register any key presses and a re-boot was neccessary.
