    A BIT DISAPPOINTED

    Created: 03/12/10
    I LOVED THE COLOUR OF THE PHONE, BUT THE ACTUAL FUNCTIONING OF THE PHONE IS NO LONGER AS EFFICIENT AS IT SHOULD BE, CERTAIN AREAS HAVE PROBLEMS WORKING PROPERLY, THERE'S A CONTINOUS BLINKING OF MASSAGE BUTTON ON THE SCREEN, I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING BUT IT STILL WILL NOT DISAPPEAR, ALSO THE PHONE WAS IN A VERY DIRTY CONDITION, IT WAS COVERED WITH MOULDS AND FLUFFS THAT WAS DIFFICULT TO REMOVE AND FINALLY I WAS GIVEN A NOKIA CHARGER INSTEAD OF SONY ERRICSON WHICH I BOUGHT.
    OVER ALL, I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CONDITION OF THE PHONE SO FAR.

    I've always been fond of Sony Ericsson handsets, and the necessary feature I need is a GOOD camera. I previously had the k800i which was a 3.2 mpx camera, and it was fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. Then I saw the Vivaz and it actually puts my k800i's camera to shame - that's how good it is. I love the options that it gives the user, I love how everything is optional to just how you like it. I dislike though, that the on-screen keypad is so tiny, you literally have to use your fingernail, or the stylus pen (which thankfully is provided!) to select the desired letter/number. Though I personally feel that is a small price to pay for the extremely amazing service that Sony has given us in this beautiful handset. I highly recommend if you're like me and NEED a good camera as well as an amazing phone.

    Superior camera/video quality !!! Sadly the phone side lets it down !!

    The product is not the one pictured - (that is a Vivaz Pro with a pull out micro-keyboard)this is a review for Viva U5i phone.

    Our product was perfect its HD (16:9 widescreen) video camera and pictures camera. In both cases it was crisp and delivered very professional images which really help the business.

    Pictures in the dark? Very difficult. Fortunately it is used during working hours. Everything else? The rating takes a fall.

    Many complaints are made about the touch screen reactivity - yet we found this to adequate in its performance.

    Reception with phone call performance was mid range. Overall - a prime example of HD compact camera for video/documentary support. The phone side to it - adequate (yet not awful)

    We'd not recommend this phone - yet we love it !!!

    Amazing, whoever says it isn't - get a grip.

    This phone is extremely light and easy to use. The modern look really gives it the eye-catching look.

    Many people have complained saying that some words from one menu are still appearing when you go onto another menu - this is because of the theme - change the theme to a similar one and your fine!

    This phone is the best I have had. Capturing pictures in HD quality and recording videos in high quality really gives the phone a high rating.

    Vivaz seems like a complicated phone to use with all its amazing features; but to be honest, it has the most simplist design, yet the most sophisicated.

    If you are after a good-looking, light, easy-to-use and simple phone. This is for you. And for the low ratings, ignore them.
