Sony Ericsson K530 Review

Sony Ericsson K530 Review

At the end of July we acquainted you in brief with the resources of the above model; the unit we had at our disposal was a prototype, whereas today we will have the chance to review the final variant of the telephone. Let us bring back to our minds that Sony Ericsson K530 is a standard candybar unit, whose functionality has been enhanced, compared to its predecessor K510, so it can operate in 3G networks as well.

The device comes in a small unit and the kit that the user gets includes:

  • Sony Ericsson K530
  • Stereo Handsfree HPM-61
  • USB Data Cable DCU-65
  • Standard Charger
  • CD with software
  • User Guide

This is a standard set for a phone of a medium class and there is nothing in excess to raise the price; the first thing we would recommend that you provide is a Memory Stick Micro (M2) card(the phone supports up to 2GB ) because the few megabytes of built-in memory is utterly insufficient for the needs of today. And in case you do not dispose of a USB hub it is strongly recommended you get one as well, since the kit’s data cable (DCU-65) is only 80 cm (31.5 inches) long. It is quite likely that there will be a greater distance between the computer and the desk, which is sure to render file exchange with the pc rather inconvenient.

If you are still interested(4 years later), for me, the RF performance is as good as a RF can be (?), but I'm no expert at this... The antenna is in the headset...
