Sony Ericsson G900 Review
0. phoneArena 05 Sep 2008, 09:28 posted on
G900 is the flagship model of the new line and it’s positioned in the high-class. The phone is based on Symbian UIQ without making it hard to use. Its main purpose is to offer intuitive work, and the OS will simply widen the organizing options. Like its smaller brother G700, the flagship model is equipped wit a touchscreen, on which you can write or draw notes. In contrast to it though, it has a 5-megapixel camera and Wi-Fi support, respectively for quality photographs and Internet access.

Wow I'm incredibly disappointed that PhoneArena would even dare to publish such a review. It's evident that there is an incredible amount of bias towards Nokia phones and of course, against with Sony Ericsson phones. This review just echoes that completely. Quite honestly, reviews like this set apart PhoneArena from top-tier phone reviews such as GSMArena, Mobile Burn, etc.

i couldn't agree more. this is the most bias review i've ever read. it seems that the reviewer is too hard with SE G900. well anyway, that's why GSMARENA is the most trusted cellphone review site because give neutral reviews.

sorry, dun agree with ya the administrator, bcos i believe wat phonearena team did and said're true... i've tried this phone, n it's very annoying and irritating...perhaps, i had a bad luck, but all bugs n error n too many reset r simply unacceptable...this is my first sony phone, actually i hope much more from this model, but... u know, u can read in review...only 1 thing i dun really agree, the camera quality is excellent I believe

Not that happened to the person who made this review but here my images. That I did not know Mr operate equipment in the month you were with. Indeed, the only flaw detected at SE G900 is that the image stabilizer is not working and almost nullifies the flash when activated. The default browser is MiniOpera 8.65941. It is not obsolete. I respect the author's opinion, but it is wrong. Here pictures of my review http://picasaweb.google.com/jo

i have this model, and i'm not satisfied at all with it. Everything they say is true. And i got my 3rd unit, and all 3 are faulty. Sony Ericsson messed this up badly. I am very sad, and i regret buying it!!!!!

#1 Go to users forums, of people that have g900´s, and you won´t see people bitching about it freezing alot...at all...so, you picked a deffective unit and now bitch about it on a review. #OF COURSE APPS LOAD SLOWER AFTER A RESET! Apps are faster AFTER they´re loaded into the ENORMOUS amount of RAM of G900, and can´t stay there. After that, the phone is fast. All i can say, is that site is a freaking joke.

"The appearance of the menus and the background can be personalized via themes, but the icons never change" another mistake, in fact it's very easy to change the icons on this phone.

I don't know about u user, but my model had no problems at all. I agree with some things PhoneArena has addressed, but a lot of them are not true as many have pointed out. I don't agree with the "uneasy document viewing" either. No phone has perfect document viewing/editing (iPhone's missing the editing unfortunately. We can't expect PC type viewing... not even Windows mobile is good... The PAppeal ratings/explanations are pretty messed up too! This phone sure doesn't deserve high "dior" ratings... but not that low either. Same with corporate... It wasn't designed to be a business phone, but it sure has an operating system, touch screen, great organizer, notes, WiFi, quickoffice, etc. A 1 is definetly not the right number.
when will the G700 be reviewed? We will see about that.

I totally agree with the reviewer. I bought my phone in late June and I am very sorry that I did. I have owned Sony Ericsson and Nokia phones before and this one is the worst I have ever owned in my life. Money was wasted!! I had so many problems with it. My phone lagged a lot, camera wouldn't work sometimes and when it did, the quality of the photos were crap, and the phone kept restarting on its own. When I was abroad in July, it stopped working all together. I had to borrow an old cell phone from a family member. When I returned, I had it reset several times and reinstalled the phone's software. The problems with camera and lagging are still there. I have actually tried to sell it back to shops but most wouldn't buy it because they told me customers have been complaining about it and now no one wants to buy it. The ones who would take it said they'd buy it from me at 1/4 of its original price. Amazing. That phone is a piece of junk. I am now back to using my old Sony Ericsson K800i until I find a new suitable phone.

I bought mine sometime in July and at the moment my touch sensitivity is on and off as a result can't even pick up my calls sometimes........I am also disappointed with the camera quality 5megapixels(a nokia 3megapixels) takes better pictures... REGRET THE DAY I SAW AND LIKED THE PHONE...
