Sony Ericsson C901 GreenHeart

“GreenHeart” stands on the unusually small package and also as a suffix after the type designation of the C901. So look, if Sony Ericsson discovered his green heart:

  1. Sony Ericsson C901 GreenHeart
  2. Data sheet

The reduced packaging and the waiving of a printed instruction manual save paper, the housing consists of 50% recycled plastic.

A light sensor should also ensure that the brilliant TFT display consumes only as much power as needed. In fact brings the right compact C901 from his 880 mAh battery of typical endurance of five and a half hours and 18 days of standby.

So that despite saving instructions booklet, no questions remain open, the manufacturer has donated the C901 a practical and comprehensive online user manual in HTML format. It offers even a linked index and can explore themselves via full-text search for any terms.

The result is so compelling that it installed Sony Ericsson will also on the larger models that do not occur as a designated eco-phones. Saving a data cable and a memory card is, however, no environmental action, but knickrig – finally the cell phone with a price of 359 euros without a contract is no artsy.

Much equipment

Facilities and functions the C901 but qualify as full-fledged Cybershot phone: its 5-megapixel camera is but slightly different than that of the C903, but similar to ordinary image quality. Interestingly, the smaller model offers even a real Xenon Flash, while the C903 has to make do with LEDs.

The software functions for image processing are identical. Also Web browser, email client and messaging have the standard usual from Sony Ericsson and functionality. The 2.2 inch display (5.6 cm diagonal) of the C901 is contrasty and colourful and will display 320 x 240 pixels.

Music player, video recording and playback, FM radio with RDS – what is Sony Ericsson’s current platform, can be found here. Users of the eco model sacrificing only the GPS receiver of the C903.

Annual readings

In the laboratory the C901 scores a tad bit big brother C903, but still good. In particular the transmission and reception quality in the GSM network, as well as the acoustic properties contribute a few points of less.

The better Akkuleistungen, as well as the higher handling only partly compensate again.
