Sony Ericsson T650 ReviewSony Ericsson T650 7.4
Pressing the right selection key reveals the icons of the main menu, arranged in a 3 x 4 grid. There is the choice of four themes and several are Flash type, which makes them fairly spectacular and interesting. At nightfall some of these change their color (getting darker, for example), thus adding to the feel of variety and ringing the changes. Until recently, the above themes were used in the Walkman series only, but Sony Ericsson have obviously decided to make them more popular; we noted their presence in S500 and now in T650.
Besides the themes, one can personalize the phone by using the seven profiles; they are accessible by a single pressing of the on/off button (holding it will turn the unit off).
The Phone Book is a traditionally good with a capacity for entering 1000 contacts with up to 5 numbers each, though not exceeding a total of 2500 numbers. However, there is the unpleasant drawback of searching by the first name only. As with most of the models of this manufacturer one can add detailed information to each contact, enabling easy access to all important data, concerning your acquaintances. You can also add voice dialing, up to three e-mails and one web-address, a picture, a ringtone, and even more useful information to each contact.
Sony Ericsson have taken care to provide you with an organizer, featuring an abundance of functions indeed, so that you could put your everyday jobs in order and not forget anything important. Calendar, Tasks, Notes, Synchronization, Timer, Stopwatch, Calculator, Code Memo, and (flash)Light are all at your disposal. And before hearing the question where exactly to set the alarm, we will note that it is not to be found in this submenu – it occupies its own place in the main one. Up to five alarms can be set with the additional options of picking a different signal for each as well as setting them to go off on certain days of the week or just once.
The remaining functions of the organizer are standard and well-known from previous models of the company, so we will not discuss them.
The phone features about 14 MB free built-in memory (depending on the installed software) and an option to add a Memory Stick Micro (M2). The one in our set had 256 MB.
