I wonder if this Sony Ericsson has the usual problems with randomly switching itself off at inconvenient moments. The last 3 SE's I had suffered from this no matter how many times you get them replaced or update the firmware on them. I think I saw on here they recently had the same problems with a flagship device. I suppose these flaws are impossible to pick up on for reviewers with a limited testing period?
*Looks at phone, then price*Well, SE is certainly going to have the schoolgirl market sewn up..
What is this, a phone for ants????
I have this phone for two weeks now and unlike my previous Sony phone, it hasnt switched itself once. Yay! So annoying! Im a 50 plus bloke who bought this for its large font size and large clock display. (The text reading size is smaller than I would like, about average, making reading glasses mandatory for this user, but phone numbers displayed while dialing are huge). Phone has great battery life and does what I want it to very easily. I dont have an issue with keypad, (much much better than my previous Sony which cost twice as much as this one), but I dont text much either. The build quality is way better than the one reviewed, i.e. has same finish top and bottom and keypad is robust, albeit a little small in places like the back button and the cancel button.My main quibble is that screen display isnt as easily readable in outdoor daylight as my previous Sony. The swish outside display screen is even harder to read in bright conditions. Overall though, for a bloke who uses his phone primarily for phone calls and early morning alarm (lovely melody on increasing volume)this phone is a big improvement on my old and expensive Sony. Two other big plusses over my old unit are increased signal strength and small footprint.When phone makers finally get it that much of its customer demographic does not have 20/20 vision,they will come to realise that simple things such as larger font size and clock display options can be key selling features.
this phone is freaking awesome idk what its considered in europe but everyone i know in the U.S. loves it. its the smallest phone i've ever seen, including the miniscule touch screen i just saw last night.
I want to purchase the F100I mobile but i do not know where can i purchase it.Kindly requesting to you please suggest me availability the mobile in the Jaipur & Delhi City.
