I agree with with carkitter. Camera-wise W902 is basically C902 with great audio since they share the same cam module. It only lacks face detection though

My other half had a K850i, she now has a C702, dont think the pictures or videos are quite as good, but overall she is happier with the C702, keypad is slightly better to use.
So once again C902 wins.

Does any one here think overall the c902 is not a very good phone??

My problems are

-Texting- Phones are meant for texting so why are the buttons so poor, when you type a text the buttons hardly go down which makes speed typing impossible
-Screen is too small, some may find this okay but after coming from a w910 its a real pain
-Poor camera-All the pics posted here from c902 all look great, but you will have chosen the right settings (focus etc). For normal point and shoot the shots are very poor. The pics might look good if i took forever choosing the right settings for the right weather conditions etc. By then the moments gone, so not impressed.
-Pics look bad on screen- When you take a pic the shots on the screen look slightly blurry, but when you zoom in slightly the pic looks sharper and clearer.
-Materials used- The back cover (while looking nice) is not very practical as it is slippy and you can loose grip, which i a real bummer, i was looking forward to trying out some of the new motion games (bowling etc), but that seems unlikely as i will probs throw the phone across the room.

Rant over, on the pluses the blue light when you turn on the camera looks nice and the phone looks nice as well, and the touch buttons look nice (rather have larger screen).

Do you have these problems?? (have latest firmware)

Do you think the K850 would be a suitable option?


i did not experienced any of the problems you mentioned....

- (your statement strange) i think it's perfect for texting.... (not as good as my P990 of course.... )

- you are right about the screen size

- i don't agree with you about the camera..... after 3 months of usage i think it has a GREAT and FANTASTIC camera.......... ( i must say that i use my own modded camdriver..... i am still testing it to increase the flash power and adding a custom night mode with focus (aka night portrait) instead of the document mode... will share it when all tests are done.... i love the results it produces.). and i shoot on auto in 95% of the shots.... live and vibrant shining colors and details.

- it's not too blurry but it's inevitable... for fast browsing the pictures; it should create that thumbnail.

- the materials... are you kidding?? ... i think the materials and design are the best part of this phone... love the feeling of metal finish... (but i must say that the things printed on the metal will wear off such as the Cyber-Shot logo on the back of the phone)


- no i don't have these problems (also on the latest firmware)

- i had the K850 for a couple of weeks... texting with it is not difficult but... but it's far more harder than the C902 (because of the d-pad being between the keypad)...

Id say get the K850. Debranded and updated mine a few months ago and now im loving this lil machine lol, havent had a single problem ever since then, its battery life increased drasticaly with the update and now with the modding my K850 is almost perfect, wouldn't trade it for a C902 or a C702.

i had both the C902 and K850...

- K850 has better screen (c902 screen shows the colors a little over saturated)

- K850 ... Xenon flash (speaks for itself!!!!!)

- K850 has lanyard hole which C902 doesn't (it is a missing key factors in C902)

- C902 has better camera results in most situations (not completely dark scenes of course....) it's flash is way better than ordinary LED ones but will not catch the powerful xenon on the K850 (it can produce near xenon results with my own modded camdriver )

- C902 video quality is better... (audio wise... they are incomparable... you will be SHOCKED by the crystal clear STEREO sound recorded with the C902 camera)

- C902 has a better featured media app

- operating the camera is easier in C902 thanks to the touch keys

- C902 has better materials (metal finish)

- C902 has a lens cover (cleaning the K850's lens glass every time you want to shoot is a real pain)

any thing else is personal taste.... like the design... keypad...etc

I would go for C702 (again, with these options, for me it has the best specifications). It doesn't have a 5mp cam, but that's the only real 'disadvantage' compared to the others. I don't even need (or want) a 5mp cam on my phone. They're just technically worse because of the tiny sensor (more noise >aggressive noise reduction >lack of detail >not good for large prints >why 5mp?).

Hahaha that's hilarious. In the first few days the C902's keypad is a little hard to use, but it softens up and you get used to it. I can text faster on my C902 than any other phone I've ever had and I'd say it is the best keypad I've ever had. So take that.

Some people just don't give phones a chance.

hmm i dunno i'd be pretty hard pressed if i could get them for the same price. Seeing as i already have a k850i i'm a bit biased towards it. But i use my phone a lot for party situations and the fact that xenon gives proper light and can actually "freeze" a scene so i get a good crisp image unlike the gimicky "image stabiliser" is infinitely useful to me which is why i would pick the k850i.
Otherwise as a style statement and for anything else i would recommend the a c902
