"Sony should hang this one on its Wall of Shame."

TantMieux, CNET
18 February 2012
  • Pros: The phone offers adequate phone quality for the caller and the receiver. As for physical features, its bluish-black color and slightly curved shape gives it a contemporary, stylish appearance.
  • Cons: Tiny keys do not easily respond to touch. Failure to clear the keypad from screen after placing a call results in poor call quality. Camera's "light" feature provides inadequate illumination for night photography.

From Sony , back to Samsung !

10janivar, Ebay
2 January 2012
  • 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.

WASTE OF MONEY

Tarkin_Jr, Phone Arena
15 October 2011
  • 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 !) .

At Last! A Phone I Really Do Not Like. SE Vivaz U5a

robert-chambers, Ebay
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.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz: My first touchscreen handset

Daisy606, Dooyoo
31 July 2012
  • Summary: 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. The specs of the phone were more than adequate for my needs (calling, texting, some basic apps) and it had the bonus of a HD camera.
  • Pros: Clear, crisp screen, above average camera and video
  • Cons: Heats up whilst on a call, slow operation, plastic design
