  1. retail price is set at 499 euro,(around 452 british pounds) here in netherlands they sell the phone for 365 euro,(around 330 british pounds) lowest price so far i found of three websites , date of availability is set on march 12th …

  2. Just got this today on contract and must say i am very impressed, still a few software bugs to iron out but it does seem fairly fast, nice and easy to navigate and is bundled with tons of nice features.

    landscape screen is a little tempermental as if you so much as turn it a little too far around it will move back to normal instead of widescreen which gets a little annoying. The wi-fi option is GREAT however.. i can browse the net using my fiber optic broadband at home and videos load fast.

    Overall: very impressed.

  3. is this mobile good?
    What about the camera? are the pic. nice?
    I want it but i doubt…

    So, what say you? Tnx for the help!

  9. Hey Guys,

    Its a good phone, it has all the basic multimedia options. as per my observation on past a month only the sound is low. cost of the phone is bit higher for the same.

  10. Please dont buy Vivaz its not worth for wat u pay… its not an HD all lies…photo and video clarity is poor…external sound also poor…i feel its utter waste ….

  11. does vivaz has a vga cam to support video calling? can you tell me how to navigate to the front panel cam of vivaz U5..

  12. HI DUDES Im going to buy its price is here around 250$ . ithink its cammera is the best thing . better cellphone?

  13. I’m using it for 5 days now.It’s fast because of the 720Mhz processor and it doesn’t freeze.The camera quality is good,videos are not HD but way better than D1.The battery backup is fine.I’ve got the blue one and I really really love it.

  14. Hey..I bought mine way back in October 2010 and quite fine with it. The only thing I hate most is that it lags once in awhile. My friend said maybe because of Symbian?But overall,I’m contented with SE Vivaz.The audio is good,camera is just okay,WiFi no problem. I think it’s the area and place you get it. I bought the cosmic black and be sure to get ori for SE warranty 🙂

  15. Had mine 6 months now a nice phone but has a few annoying points.
    Battery charging connection and cover awful.
    No flash on the camera.
    Poor MP3 quality.
    No confirmation text messages are delivered.
    Phone will shut down for no reason then difficult to restart without recharging the battery.

  16. The Vivaz phone is the wrost phone ever in sony ericsson .
    The applications will not install in the phone.
    Only in the specifications speed is high but in the actual speed is very less compared to NOKIA 5800(cost 12000).
    Most problems in the phone is Charging port will become loose .
    After bying this phone port will be loose in eaither 1 day or 1 year but servise center people not able to repair the problem. so money will be in ash only.

    Phone is very slow,
    Camera is worst in the night due to with out flash,
    check the below link about the disadvantages of the vivaz phone .. you will not see the phone after you see the disadvantages
