Comment: I have to say I disagree with a lot of the negative reviews. I still bought the phone after reading these and I must say it was a good decision. A lot of the issues with Symbian OS, the proprietary fastport connector and resistive touchscreen that I have heard of, i have not had a problem with.
Firstly the software bugs that have been mentioned before are mainly down to early handsets and this has been fixed with the latest firmware which is easy to load on. Symbian OS is very similar to previous models of Sony Ericssons and although it may seem boring not to have changed the style or menus, somehow the term "if it ain't broke, why fix it?" comes into mind and I find that this makes it less complicated to use.
The audio equaliser, as mentioned in other reviews, is not included as standard, however it is FREE to download from the included SE PlayNow app store which also has some other great free mobile apps.
The proprietary fastport connector has also been mentioned, however I've not found this to be an issue as adapters and cables are readily available. I picked up a thumb sized adapter for about Â£2.50 which fits perfect in my wallet or you could even use a set of wireless bluetooth headphones.
The resistive touchscreen is very responsive and the simple layout of the Symbian OS make it very easy to use. Texts are easy to type in using the full screen qwerty keyboard.
Overall, these are the issues I was unsure about before I bought it, but now I'm glad I did. If you are upgrading from a previous Sony Ericsson handset you will feel right at home with this model. You won't find any phone with a better camera and it's a great all rounder.
Bad: to some extent the resistive touch screen
Comment: overall very good mobile excellent camera for both snapshot and movie taking.
i think symbian os is slowing and wasting its power.
