Summary: Finally received the phone...as described but it took more than six weeks from when ordered. Sure, it came from China...but really? Unacceptable in this day and age and especially at the price.
Summary: I bought this phone because of the pleasant 5 years I spent using Sony Ericsson 800i. however it is nowhere near the quality. the phone has poor reception. its battery life is average at best. its games stopped launching within 2 weeks of buying it. and it just feels like a cheap phone that is easy to break.
Summary: Amazon did not specify it was "used". On receipt it was in spanish and had 1100 spanish songs loaded on it which I had to delete individually. The reception isn't good either. My old "english" model was great for reception. No very impressed at all. £100 wasted!!!!
Summary: the big problem being on the keypad I have 2 sets of 6 and 2 sets of mno fortunately the phone has the right numers letters when pressed ie 9 wxyz but its bloody inconvienent I often press the wrong keys when not concentrating but did the compant realise this when they sent it out--no mention of this fault at the time--perhaps thats why it was relatively cheap--but i need a phone as i was going to malta for a month.
Summary: Good-looking, quality-feel Sony mobile phone. I bought it mainly for it's strong point - the sound quality of the Walkman music audio facility. However, its weak-spot is that the flash Lite player provided cannot play YouTube videos and there is no alternative flash player (or browser with built-in flash player) available to download to the phone. For me, this is an occasional frustration but for other purchasers this may well be a major issue.
In my opinion, the best non-touch screen phone on the market
