Sony Ericsson C905 mobile phone – First Look - Pocket-lint


In our First Look we were unable to assess the critical performance aspects we would like, such as image quality and how the phone is to live with, but

Good build quality, dedicated camera buttons, more advanced camera options

Lack of on-board memory

In our First Look we were unable to assess the critical performance aspects we would like, such as image quality and how the phone is to live with, but in the flesh it seems like an interesting proposition. The question moving forward from here is...

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905 Plus


The Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905 is revisited here in its upgraded 'Plus' guise.

I still find this handset clunky to hold. But if you already have the C905 it is worth upgrading its software. I've given it an extra point for features over the original version and that is just enough to raise it to TrustedReviews Recommended status.

Sony Ericsson C905 Plus review


The Sony Ericsson C905 Plus rocks up with some tidy new features. But does it seriously improve upon the original five star Cyber-shot?

Only offers a fine-tuning of the C905’s software, but a welcome refresh of an already classy camphone

Sony Ericsson C905 Review


The Sony Ericsson C905 packs a powerful 8 megapixel punch, and has the distinction of being the first camera phone to do so. While some manufacturers deliver a sub-standard camera experience Sony Ericsson…

Sony Ericsson C905


What a marvel! The excitement and hype surrounding this is remarkable. The reason for it all is that the Sony C905 features an amazing 8.1 mega-pixel camera with Cyber Shot capabilities, the best yet. This really is a phone to experiment and play...

Sony Ericsson C905 Cyber-shot Plus


The Sony Ericsson C905 Plus mobile phone has an eight-megapixel sensor, can shoot video at 30fps, and a 2.4-inch TFT screen. Additional functions include picture-blogging capabilities and built-in GPS. It measures 104x49x18mm and weighs just 136g. With...

Our pick of today’s crop of 8MP cameraphones combines the best in modern digital photography with, er, the best in modern digital comms. There are certainly gimmicky features on board but the chassis of this lassie is classy. Sony Ericsson C905...

Sony Ericsson C905 Cyber-shot


The Sony Ericsson C905 may look a little workmanlike, but this Cyber-shot branded handset (until the Sony Ericsson Idou arrives at least) has the best camera we've seen in a mobile phone.

Accurate eight-megapixel camera takes sumptuous snaps

Battery life is average, and that 2.4-inch screen's a bit small

Few can touch the Sony Ericsson C905 when it comes to photographic quality. One of the best camera phones around.

Sony Ericsson C905


The 8.1-megapixel C905 CyberShot phone is equipped with Xenon flash and is always ready to capture the best moments of your life. C905 has all the functions you need for perfect pictures. Smart Contrast balances light and colour. Face detection helps...

It offers A-GPS and an awesome 8 megapixel camera that is well integrated.

Not all the camera filters and balances work as well as they should.
