Sony Ericsson C905 review: Cyber shot, cyber hot


High megapixel count is the rage these days and Sony Ericsson C905 is adding fuel to the fire. The first 8 megapixel GSM cameraphone to make headlines is shipping as we speak. On top of geotagging...

8.1 MP autofocus camera with Xenon flash and active lens cover ; Dedicated camera mode switch, two camera/gaming keys over the display ; Face and Smile detection, smart contrast, image stabilizer, geotagging, red-eye reduction ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE...

Display is relatively small for a high-end device ; Video recording limited to QVGA resolution at 30fps ; No front facing video call camera ; No office document viewer ; Sliding lens cover of questionable durability ; Exposed connectivity port ; Fiddly...

Sony Ericsson C905 will be remembered as the first announced 8 megapixel GSM phone. That alone earns it a line in history but it's performance to decide if the line should become a chapter. By the looks of it, the Sony Ericsson team is going for a...

Sony Ericsson C905 Cyber-shot hands-on: First look


The Sony Ericsson C905 Cyber-shot has managed to create a real stir in the mobile community. It's the first GSM handset that ships with the whopping 8 megapixels worth of camera goodies and such things simply cannot go unnoticed.

Sony Ericsson C905 review


On paper, Sony Ericsson aims high with its latest 8-megapixel Cyber-shot phone, the C905. It?s the first product from the Japanese/Swedish venture to sport such a high resolution camera, and, if you ask us, also the first capable of competing with the...

Sony Ericsson C905


The Sony Ericsson C905 is a very good phone with a decent camera, but don't expect this to be the model that has you selling your stand-alone camera on eBay.

Attractive design, Rubberised body, Zippy performance, Excellent battery life

Camera isn't superior to previous Cyber-shot phones, Cramped, stiff keypad, No 3.5mm headphone port on phone, Outrageously expensive

Sony Ericsson C905 Review


Sony Ericsson C905 is the first mobile phone to feature an 8 Megapixel camera, and the slider should be remembered even if only for that. Anyway, Sony Ericsson has fierce rivals such as Samsung and LG, who have also announced some 8 Megapixel camera...

Obviously, the strong point of the phone is the 8.1 Megapixel camera, but also the quality of the pictures taken. Together with the HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivities, the GPS and excellent display turn the C905 into the flagship of the Cyber-shot series

There are a couple of things that should be improved in the future Cyber-shot phones, and those include the low processor, which cannot handle the graphical UI as it should. Also, the fact that you get such a small display might be frustrating for...

Review Of Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905 (AT&T) Cell Phone


Sony has the perfect pair with AT&T as they both are the prime requirement for the quality. Sony has so much excellence in the job as they are the masters in the field of sound quality and also they are the unbeaten in the Camera quality. The zoon...

The Sony Ericsson C905 is the blessing technical giant with 8.1 megapixel camera and the mind blowing and unbelievable quality of 3G/HSDPA speeds. There are so many rocking and smashing quality of the device

Such a stunning sound clarity without a 3.5 millimetre handset jack is the shocking factor and also is a painful feature

: If you are crazy for the quality and high performance, you can never be wrong for the Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905a.

Sony Ericsson Cyber-Shot C905 Mobile Phone Review


US are quite hungry of receiving instruments of Sony. It's difficult to find any of the Sony cell phones here as they are highly expensive. Even higher than their high-end mega pixels!! It's a great dawn when they at least found a superb middle way by...

: It is undoubtedly the best choice as it comes from Sony's family and also the finest quality of camera is enriching the Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905a.
