Sony Ericsson C903 Video Review

The Sony Ericsson C903 is designed to take stunning pictures wherever life’s memorable events might occur. Remembering your most special times is as easy as sliding back the phone’s lens cover and snapping a picture.

Unlike other mobile phones on the market, the Sony Ericsson C903 actually sports a high quality camera- an ultra thin 5 mega pixel wonder of technology. Even in its slim casing, the onboard camera manages to take the most stable, crisp photographs that you have ever seen on a mobile phone camera. You will not see any colour blurring or graininess in your photos, and at 5 mega pixels, the camera on the Sony Ericsson C903 will even give dedicated ‘point and shoot’ digital cameras a run for their money in picture quality! The camera phone is even much simpler to use than others, despite its astounding capabilities. There are a few dedicated camera buttons about the phone itself, and snapping a picture really is as easy as clicking once to activate the camera, sliding back your protective lens cover, and clicking again to capture the moment forever. What really sets the C903 apart from other camera phones is the output port on the device itself. This will allow you to display and edit your photos on your television set or your computer monitor.

To ensure that every moment is captured every time you take a picture, The Sony Ericsson C903 comes equipped with the latest in photographic technology. Each camera comes standard with face detection, which is capable of identifying three people within each frame, and Sony’s exclusive smile seeking software: Smile Shutter, which is capable of identifying the radiant smiles of your friends and family!

The C903 is equipped with the latest in mobile gaming technology, able to play a wide variety of 3D games, and take advantage of the phone’s motion sensing capacity.
