Sony Ericsson have been in a downward slide for a while not much of a surprise given how reliable my current SE phone is.

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

10 years ago phones used to be top quality and would last forever. that was possible because you paid a fortune for your phone. these days people pay far less and dont keep their phone as long so phones are designed to be disposable cheap goods. that is why quality has dropped noticably over the years.

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

I'm super happy with my C902. Other than the last but one firmware which was a blue&me failure... they've fixed this with their latest release.

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

Jug has a very valid point but that c905 in the story cost £391.44! Thou in real terms it's much cheaper than a phone from 10 years ago, it's not to the level of other electronics like home computers or laptops that are a fraction of there 1999 price but offer some sort of reliability... Like nokia released 13 different updates of software for the n96 in it'r first few weeks of sale lol. It'r really weird that none of this showed up in testing?

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

It cheeses me off that when I get a shiny new mobile the first thing I've got to do is a software upgrade

I wanted the new C905 a few weeks back when my contract was up for renewal but all the reviews I read made it a no no. No new mobiley for me cause it's the only mobile i really like just now, so its just a sim only contract

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

i like SEs to use, ive had nothing else over the past few years. But their reliability is awful - the last one had all sorts of problems.

Then again, ive now got a blackberry which is almost as bad you are always gonna get problems with newer technology these days though, given that its advancing so fast.

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

I've SE's for the last 6 years and never really had any issues, but given all the comments on their new phones from different forums and review sites, I'm thinking of jumping back to a Nokia

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

Had a K750i that was solid and worked fine - especially after a firmware update.
Got the k850i when it came out and it was completely different. The case was rubbish, dust got in behind the camera cover and the phone reset at least once a week even after installing the latest update. Switched to the iPhone when my contract ended - was really annoyed that SE went downhill so rapidly.

The K750i or W810 was about the last good phone they made. The K800i wasn't bad either but it was the beginning of the end

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

I have the W850i, and I'm only starting to have intermittent problems with it that seem to solve themselves after a few days Rather than pay through the nose to get it looked at, I went and bout a R306 for ~$80 and I use that one when it goes dead

Ive never had a problem with SE

Re: And for for anyone interested in buying Sony Ericsson...

I would never go back to Sony Ericsson after my last phone. Very bad quality. Like you say Jug, I had my 6600 for just under 4 years. Never had one problem
