My Vivaz Pro

 

I have one of them is too good, I quite like the media player including music, pictures and video. With respect to internet search engine is pretty good also has a great zoom, applications are good in the beginning its 5 customizable desktop like me. Well there are many good things about this phone, everyone has their tastes but for my part I recommend it ;)

Handle with care

 

Two friends of mine + me bought a Sony Vivaz Pro. We were all very happy at first and after three months we all have problems with our phones (different carriers). The menu is totally not user friendly, it took me one hour to find out how to change the ring tone !! I usually find it very quickly. Sturdiness = 0 Mine fell on the floor ONCE and the LCD exploded. I changed it for another LCD and it broke again the first time i dropped it on the floor by accident. I'm not expecting my phone to resist if I throw it one a concrete wall, but a portable device should be shock proof a bit. My friend's phone is just falling appart, losing pieces that were badly glued and making it's guarantee canceled. Don't buy this phone

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro review: HD gets a Pro flavor

 

Modern always-on web-connected generation need so much equipment to get through the day it's a small wonder they don't have to lug tool bags around – the small wonder in this case is the Sony Ericsson Vivaz...

3.2" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, geotagging and touch focus ; HD 720p video recording @ 24fps with continuous auto focus ; Symbian OS 9.4 S60...

Camera downgraded from 8MP on the regular Vivaz ; No camera lens protection ; The S60 5th edition UI isn't the best in usability ; No auto locking of the screen during a call ; No DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box ; No smart or voice dialing ; No...

The term “cameraphone” emerged soon after pictures taken with a mobile phone began to look less like impressionist paintings and more like actual photos. Today we're at a point when 5MP are nothing to write home about

After we already reviewed one of the buzz-worthy phones this spring, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, now we have the pleasure to run its keyboard-anointed sibling – the Vivaz pro – through its paces and see how it stacks up against it...

Although the slide-out keyboard is a major element, Sony Ericsson have managed to retain the good looks of the "original" handset, adding just 2mm in thickness and 20 grams in weight. But for some unfathomable reason, the camera on the Vivaz Pro has...

Retaining the same 720p video recording capabilities and the Symbian S60 platform with its uniquely designed user interface, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro comes with some slight modifications such as a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 5-megapixel...
