Sony Ericsson C902 Review


Welcome to the Sony Ericsson C902 mobile phone review. The Sony Ericsson C902 when released in early 2008 was marketed as a top-range mobile phone and the successor to the K850i.  As a result it has most of the features you could want on a mobile phone in 2008.  It’s not an exceptional model like the k800i.

Since this review is being completed in 2009 the C902 is now quite a good deal since it is probably no longer manufactured. When released it wasn’t cheap and hence not popular overall.

The standout feature is a decent 5MP camera but it’s LED based flash of course and that is does look good although a little conservative.   It’s also quite thin and feels like a quality mobile phone.  By 2008 standards this is a pretty decent phone with all the features you could want.  However since this was compared with the other newer Sony Ericsson’s which we posted the quick reviews on it doesn’t stand out in any way.  In fact by 2009 standards it’s very mid-range or less.

Buy the C902 in 2010 based on price alone look out for those priced under $200AUD at a number of online stores.

Overall yet another good and decent mobile phone.  It doesn’t feel or look like a cheap phone and has all you need for calls, email, texting and music.  Being 3G capable it does work well on mini-mobile sites and email.  However there are many competitors in this category so do check them especially Nokia. Very low key lower end mid-range phone that does most things.
