Sony Ericsson C902 Reviews

CNET Australia does a first take review of the Sony Ericsson C902 and writes, "As you may expect, Sony Ericsson has thrown nearly every known camera phone feature into the C902. The camera features a maximum resolution of 5 megapixels, a range of auto-focus modes including macro and face detection, a photo-light flash which can be set to stay on for shooting video, and a digital image stabiliser setting. Image settings are adjusted using a selection of touch-sensitive icons located around the screen which are activated when the lens cover is pulled open. We only had one gripe when using the camera during our tests and that was that the flash cannot be set to "On", there's only "Auto" and "Off" settings."

3G reviews the Sony Ericsson C902 and writes, "Being a Cyber-shot phone, the camera was always going to be at the forte of the C902. There's no Xenon flash, but Sony Ericsson has packed the handset with a whole host of features. Anything seen before in a Cyber-shot phone, you can bank your bottom dollar that it's here in the C902. BestPic has always been one of 3G.co.uk's favourite camera features, and it continues to impress. Switch it on via the settings menu and each time you shape up to take a shot, the C902 will quickly take nine shots in one rapid burst, before giving you the option of selecting the best one. It's great for shooting moving objects or sporting events for example."

ZDNET Australia reviews the Sony Ericsson C902 and writes, "As you may expect, Sony Ericsson has thrown nearly every known camera phone feature into the C902.

Register Hardware reviews the Sony Ericsson C902 and writes, "Maybe we're overreacting. Maybe the C902 isn't the new slimline K850i after all. Maybe its the new K770i – though we thought that was the C702 - and a C903 or C904 device will come along and slot in between the C902 and C905 before the K850i gets the chop. Or maybe the K850i will live onto to a ripe old age. After all, you can still buy the two-year-old K800i. At the end of the day the C902 is just a competent upper mid-range snapper and we expected rather more."

CNET UK reviews the Sony Ericsson C902 and writes, "The C902 is a great-looking phone with some really cool design features, such as the slide-out lens cover. Despite being packed with a wealth of features, it remains very easy to use. Although the 5-megapixel camera takes very good shots, they're still not going to rival those from a dedicated digital camera."

Trusted Reviews has a review of the Sony Ericsson C902 and writes, "Another nifty aspect of the C902 is the camera's lens cover. Where these are provided on candybar style mobiles they are usually a sliding cover which you flick back to get the camera started...The camera's performance is up there with the best 5-megapixel offerings I've seen on a mobile phone. My test shot of the coloured dish photographed under normal household lights is very sharp and its colours are vibrant."
