A cameraphone with slim stylish metal bodywork

Last time we checked Sony Ericsson C902 was a hi-end cameraphone and now it's well into the daily grind of its megapixel league. Not being top-of-the-line is not necessarily a bad thing though. At 250 euro and heading down, Sony Ericsson C902 is a must-consider. The touch-operated camera and unique active lens cover are strong enough points in a handset that won't go unnoticed anyway.

Last time we checked Sony Ericsson C902 was a hi-end cameraphone and now it's well into the daily grind of its megapixel league. Not being top-of-the-line is not necessarily a bad thing though. At 250 euro and heading down, Sony Ericsson C902 is a must-consider. The touch-operated camera and unique active lens cover are strong enough points in a handset that won't go unnoticed anyway. The stylish metal bodywork and slim line do give it an edge with the style-conscious users.

The biggest - and perhaps the only - letdowns of a cameraphone of this caliber are screen size and the poor video recording capabilities. Still excellent build quality, fast speed data, solid multimedia and great interface in feature phone terms do sound right for the slimmest 5 megapixel cameraphone. So, we see nothing wrong with a cameraphone that looks and acts solid, but doesn't tear a hole in your pocket.

Remaining an excellent alternative in the camera-centric phones realm, the Sony Ericsson C902 still loses to the similarly priced Samsung F480 Tocco with its fancy touch UI and good camera and the Nokia N82 with its superb image quality plus GPS and Wi-Fi. Nevertheless, we enjoyed its company and won't mind seeing it around more often.

Well-built device with a slim form factor and good camera

from MobileBurn

The Sony Ericsson C902i is a very stylish, well-built device with a slim form factor and good camera. I especially liked the way that the 5.0 megapixel camera was hidden in the phone's slim body, without any bulge protruding from its rear. However, the battery was unexpectedly bad, often struggling to manage two days from a full, overnight charge. Despite this and the device's awkward keypad, the C902i is still a very desirable device, and has plenty of features packed into its anorexic casing...

The Sony Ericsson C902i is a very stylish, well-built device with a slim form factor and good camera. I especially liked the way that the 5.0 megapixel camera was hidden in the phone's slim body, without any bulge protruding from its rear. However, the battery was unexpectedly bad, often struggling to manage two days from a full, overnight charge. Despite this and the device's awkward keypad, the C902i is still a very desirable device, and has plenty of features packed into its anorexic casing.

I'll give the C902i a "Highly Recommended" rating, thanks to its good camera and sturdy, yet slim body. It's funky touch controls and overall stylish appearance help to boost the plus points, outweighing the battery performance issues.

Possible alternatives to consider are the Sony Ericsson K850i, the LG Viewty or Secret, or the Samsung Soul.
