Sony Ericsson C702 Review

Performance and Conclusion:

We believe the Sony Ericsson C702 has been designed to hold out against splashes and dust and it shows, but what about calls? The manufacturer claims battery provides up to 7 hours of continuous talk time and 300 hours in standby. The fact in-call quality is mediocre at best is just another topic. What you hear coming out of the phone during calls is muffled and monotonous sound, while you voice is overly sharp and (intrusively) strong. All told, in-call quality is second rate at best.

The same goes for the phone itself. It has certain advantages – splash and dust resistance, built-in GPS receiver and very good navigation software. Speaking of phone functions and camera… let´s just say it strikes the golden medium and there is nothing that can get you ecstatic or overly annoyed, erm, other than the uncomfortable buttons that is. Still, we do like the whole adverse effects resistance things, plus there are quite many people who need such a device out there. If you are one of them, all you need to know is you’ve got a decent option available. As for us, we´d rather wait until something more high-tech and affording the opportunity of underwater picture taking sessions has come out.
