Sony Ericsson Vivaz is capable of HD Recording

Sony Ericsson VivazThe Sony Ericsson Vivaz knows what it is, and doesn’t try to be anything more. A touch screen smartphone running the Symbian(Series 60) operating system, it’s already in dangerous waters. Both Sony Ericsson and Symbian are thought of as unreliable, as a mobile phone manufacturer and an operating system, so the combination makes the idea of the Vivaz doubly ominous. However, the phone itself isn’t too much of a disappointment and partially redeems itself in its most amazing feature.

It is the camera features on the Vivaz that save it from being just an average unreliable model. It records in HD video, super sharp at 720p resolution. The video recordings include continuous auto focus with an additional light and image stabiliser. This is extremely impressive capacity for a mobile phone, and you can then upload your videos straight to YouTube to show them off. The Vivaz also boasts video calling, certain to become quite in demand over the next couple of years. The still camera on the phone is equally impressive boasting a massive 8.1 megapixel resolution. It also includes face and smile detection, auto-focus, an LED flash and geo-tagging due to the phone’s built in GPS.
