The C905 is Sony Ericsson’s first Cyber-shot slider styled phone and its most advanced camera phone yet. With an 8.1 megapixel camera and real camera flash amongst its cutting-edge capabilities, it offers easy photo-taking in a phone that looks and feels like a digital camera and delivers the picture quality to match.

Like Sony’s Cyber-shot cameras the C905’s features include a Xenon flash, Auto focus face detection, smart contrast an image stabiliser with a 16x digital zoom.

In comparison the S302 Snapshot is for users who want it all at an affordable price, good looks, must-have features and a pocket-sized slim design.
