Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C903


Sony Ericsson's latest Cyber-shot cameraphone slider is good if you don't want a touchscreen smartphone.

Sony Ericsson C903 review


The Sony Ericsson C903 model we got was made up of black plastic and has a metal band set around its sides. Although small in size, the phone is bulky. A silver keypad slides out from beneath the screen.

The Sony Ericsson C903 Cybershot has a good interface, decent looks but is let down by its imaging.

Sony Ericsson C903 Review


It's as small and slim as a stylish compact camera and has a neatly balanced slide mechanism. This is a handset that's strong on photo features but squeezes in music and GPS capabilities, too.What we likeThe…

C is for Cybershot : Sony Ericsson C903


Available in the choice of Glamour Red, Lacquered Black or Techno White, the C903 belongs to Sony Ericsson's family of Cybershot handsets.

Music has not been forgotten with this handset. You can play MP3 and AAC format tracks, create playlists and make use of features such as TrackID, PlayNow and Mega Bass. Music and captured images can be stored in the 105MB internal memory or on a...

Sony Ericsson - C903


Sony Ericsson's C903 is a slightly less well featured handset than the top-end C905. Both are sliders, and the C903 is slightly smaller and a fair bit lighter. At 96g and 97mm tall, 49mm wide and ...

The ergonomics of use are good, the 5-megapixel camera all you really need from a phone and the battery life perfectly acceptable. Without Wi-Fi the C903 is a bit short-changed, but nonetheless this is a good all rounder.

Sony Ericsson C903


The C903's display shows up to 262 K colors in the 240x320 pixel resolution (2.4 inch diagonal, 35x47 mm, TFT). This screen size allows it to accommodate up to 9 text and 4 service lines in most modes (plus it's possible to cram in more information...

Sony Ericsson C903


The C903 is a 5 megapixel camera phone with great looks and decent specs. It lacks a few essentials though like WiFi and a 3.5 mm jack. Is its camera enough to make it worth a second look

Battery life is great. A well priced 5 megapixel camera phone.

No WiFi. No real productivity features. No 3.5 mm jack.

The C903 is a value for money camera-phone. It looks good, although the casing feels a little plasticy. It offers some decent connectivity but misses the Wi-Fi train altogether. We found little fault with its camera, so if you're not into productivity...

Sony Ericsson C903 Review


I really liked the C902, and besides a few early hardware glitches, it was a fairly rock-solid phone that sold extremely well in 2008. One year on, Sony Ericsson has released an update that sits nicely between the C902 and C905. It retains the...

Although the latest Cyber-shot isn’t a top-end product, it still gains from being newer than the C905, meaning you get nearly all the same features in a much smaller shell. Five-megapixels is still more than enough for most people (and we’ll still be...
