If you're familiar with the Sony Ericsson mobile phones, you know that the Sony Ericsson C902 is the newest entry into the Cyber-Shot line of camera phones. The C902 replaces the K850i and has many of the same features. The major differences you will find between the two phones are the size of the screen and the type of flash for the phone. The two phones have similar capabilities although there seem to have been some issues with the Xenon flash that was used with the Sony Ericsson K850i.

Because of the touch screen capabilities of the Sony Ericsson C902, the screen is somewhat smaller than that of the K850i. The additional commands are related to the camera itself and make it easier for users to operate the camera. In fact, the C902 has more camera features than any other mobile phone including the Sony Ericsson K850i. The differences in picture quality depend upon the users-some people feel the quality on the K850i is poor while others rave about the clarity.

Sony Ericsson had problems with the Xenon flash in the Sony Ericsson K850i, so when the Sony Ericsson C902 came on the market, they used an LED flash instead. Though the LED flash is usually a weaker flash than the Xenon, Sony Ericsson's decision to eliminate it because of a series of problems was indeed a good one. The LED flash that the Sony Ericsson C902 uses is not the regular LED flash and thus is of superior quality. The general consensus is that the flash works very well and the pictures are high quality for a camera phone.

A comparison of the Sony Ericsson K805i and the Sony Ericsson C902 shows that the two cameras phones are quite similar as far as the features themselves. On the other hand, reviews tend to show that the K902 was riddled with many problems including freezing and complete shutdown of the system. Whether these problems were rampant prior to SE's decision to replace the "K" series with a newer and higher quality Cybershot camera phone is unclear.

Both of these cybershot phones have capabilities beyond that of camera phones, but the music, Bluetooth and other capabilities do not appear to differ between the Sony Ericsson C902 and the Sony Ericsson K805i. The C902 does appear to have more touch screen capabilities as indicated by the smaller screen size. This is most to accommodate the features of the camera, which tends to be more versatile and complex than the average camera phone.

The decision to use one phone over the other is personal indeed, but it's important to remember that since the C902 replaces the K850i, most people will need to upgrade in order to be relieved of some of the problems that plagued the earlier model. The new "C" series of cybershot camera phones are destined to be the wave of the future and provide more quality service for both phone and camera users.
