    SE C905a The Sony Ericsson C905a cell phone's best feature is its camera capabilities. High-end camera phones are rare and as a result they are a much needed commodity for people everywhere. The Sony Ericsson c905a was developed to house one of the largest megapixel cameras ever to be on a cell phone. AT&T picked up the c905a when it was finally released into the U.S.

The body of the phone is mainly plastic with a light silver coat. The phone is a stylish accessory with its angular edges and thick body which leans towards to the more classic styling of older phone models. It’s available in silver and black.

    The C905a's keys are flat with ridges in between the buttons perfect for dialing and typing almost blindly. The phone’s display is at a resolution of 240x320 and measures 2.5 inches. These display specifications are rather small but on a positive note it does not reflect shine outdoors unlike many OLED phone displays.

The camera boasts an 8.1 megapixel resolution and an LED focusing light, Xenon flash and f2.8 lens which makes for great low light and night shots.
