Fairly good for its price

xskydevilx has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

After switching from the K800 to this one, I would have to say I was quite pleased with a bunch of things, but there are some things I did not like. Overall, for the price, that is, it's a good phone.

Build quality 9/10 Looks very sleek for its time and surely for the price.
Reception 10/10 Reception is outstanding on certain networks.
Call quality 10/10 Very good call quality just as the reception.
Internet 6/10 Not a very good built-in browser, however that can be fixed by downloading a third party browser, such as 'Opera Mini'.
Multimedia 9/10 Fairly good media playback, however the built-in multimedia application can be laggy at times.
Camera 8/10 Fairly standard 3.2 megapixel camera, however it does not have a Xenon Flash and there is a bit of noise when capturing photos in-doors because of that.
UI speed 9/10 Pretty responsive, but I would not recommend having more than 2 applications open at the same time.
Everyday usage 9/10 Standard Sony Ericsson.
Text input 10/10 Great text input for a T9 keyboard.
Display 8/10 Can be a bit hard to see anything on direct sunlight and the dpi isn't high as high. The resolution is standard for its class, though.
Battery 8/10 With running many Java-based gaming, browsing the Web among other things, you should be able to get around 5-6 hours.


  • Face Detection
  • GPS
  • 3.5G support (HSDPA)
  • 180 MB of internal memory
  • Excellent form factor
  • Splash and dust resistant


  • Internet browsing not that good

A good phone

I have this phone for 5 months now and I have a good opinion about it. The battery lasts long if you use the MP3 Player and Camera, the quality of the pictures is ok and the other features are acceptable at this price. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that the paint from the phone peels itself very quick. After just 5 months of use the phone doesn't look so shinny as when I bought it. I didn't used it in extreme conditions so I think this is a minus for this phone.Anyway overall I'm satisfied with it and I can tell you it is shock resistant. :D

Design 7/10
Features 9/10
Performance 8/10


  • Good performance for the money


  • The paint is not too good.

Excellent Camera phone with a good Music Player

I was using NOKIA for a long time and also used NOKIA Music Edition phones.
But after using this Phone I am a fan of Sony Ericsson.
I found this phone is best in its range with an excellent battery backup.
I have used this phone for shooting 10 videos 80 still pictures and arround 1.5 hrs of taking
within a day, till the battery remains 10%.
It has a 3 MP camera with good picture quality and different shoot modes.
It's music player is good but loud speaker could have been much louder.
The most vital one is its network reception which is excellent and voice clarity is too good.
The others features offered by this ph are also good like GPS, 3G etc.

Design 10/10
Features 9/10
Performance 10/10


  • Excellent battery backup.
  • Face Detection in Camera.
  • Good head phone sound.
  • Excellent design, dust proof and battery back cover lock.
  • Fast Menu navigation speed due 180 MB phone menory.
  • 3G, GPS and upto 8 GB card support.


  • No Office Application.
  • Loud speaker could have been much louder.
