Design and Looks
The Sony Ericsson C905 is quite a heavy device measuring at 136g. The phones dimension stand at 104x49x18-19.5 mm. The handset being heavy features a sliding form factor with a flat keypad.
The keypad on the slide out comes with a pretty flat surface compared to various other models from the brand. The keys are not a pleasure to type and something the company should have thought about.
Also , the keys on the handset which are used for navigation are too hard and lack good feedback.
The screen on the phone features a 2.4 inch screen with the highest resolution of 240x320 pixels. The screen is capable of displaying about 256K colors and produces excellent colors. The screen is bright and has a good vibrant display. Sunlight eligibility on the phone is also good and does a good job in direct sunlight.
The highlight of the phone is the 8.1 megapixel sensor onboard. The camera is able to shoot images with a highest resolution of 3264x2448. The device includes autofocus and comes equipped with an LED flash. The camera features geo-tagging, face and smile detection, smart contrast, image stabilization, smile detection and video calling.

The audio quality on the phone is good and it does a great job producing some good beats.

The browser on the interface is again pretty ok and does a good job matching the high speed connection on board the device.
In conclusion, the phone is not a bad hype with the 8 megapixel sensor but users flocking to buy it for a replacement of a point shoot, Well we recommend to stay on with your point and shoots as the color reproduction and details are not the same when compared to a point and shoot.
