SE's new 5MP Cyber-shot has great digicam-like features but image quality is just ok.

Sony Ericsson C903 review: Slider-shot


Inspired by the Sony T-series point-and-shoot digcams with an elegant lens cover, the Sony Ericsson C903 is a compact and attractive cameraphone. The C903 is packed with features you'd expect of a high...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band HSDPA/ tri-band HSDPA in US version ; 5 MP AF camera with dual LED flash, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, active lens cover ; Built-in GPS with A-GPS support, Wayfinder Navigator software, geotagging ;...

Video recording limited to QVGA resolution at 30fps ; M2 card slot under the battery cover ; Camera key has almost no feedback at full press ; The glossy surface is a fingerprint nightmare ; No cover for the USB port ; No office document viewer ; No...

The C903 official announcement served the humble purpose of warming the crowd up for the Sony Ericsson deployment at this year's MWC. Obviously no match for the Idou and Hikaru, the C903 simply completes the Cyber-shot lineup of the house featuring...

Sony Ericsson C903 Preview


As we expected, Sony Ericsson did it again. The company has just taken the lead in the multi-megapixel rush with its newly introduced Idou at the MWC. Although we are biting our nails to get our hands on one of these 12-megapixel monsters due to come...

As with most Cyber-shot branded handsets, the C903 is going to be a pretty good imaging phone, and it is the only slider Cyber-shot phone except for the high-end C905. It stops short of being a Nokia N95-class device because the C903 lacks WiFi...

The latest specialist cameraphone put through its paces

5-megpixel camera ; Good GPS ; High-speed mobile data ; Easy to use interface ; Decent music player

No Wi-Fi ; No memory stick supplied ; No 3.5mm headphone socket or adapter ; LED flash lacks power ; Accidental activation issues

Does this 5MP phone impress?

Good keypad, GPS, HSDPA

A mixed handset that doesn't really live up to its Cyber-shot billing

Sony Ericsson C903 mobile phone


Looking almost identical to a standalone digital camera from the back, the C903 is Sony Ericsson's latest Cyber-shot mobile phone. This camera phone t...

Excellent 5-megapixel camera with lens cover, built-in GPS, zippy UI, impressive display

Questionable build quality, annoying controls, no Wi-Fi, no 3.5mm headphone jack

Sony Ericsson's C903 Cyber-shot mobile phone will suit those looking for a basic phone with a good camera, but there is little else about this handset that will get you excited.

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C903


Sony Ericsson's latest Cyber-shot cameraphone slider is good if you don't want a touchscreen smartphone.

There is a quick release tab for the backplate on the bottom of the casing, but apart from that all the buttons are on the right hand side of the phone. These comprise a volume rocker that doubles for zooming when you are using the camera, the camera...

Sony Ericsson C903 review


The Sony Ericsson C903 model we got was made up of black plastic and has a metal band set around its sides. Although small in size, the phone is bulky. A silver keypad slides out from beneath the screen.

The Sony Ericsson C903 Cybershot has a good interface, decent looks but is let down by its imaging.
