Sony Ericsson W705 Review
Do you know that the South American leaf frog can actually bark like a dog? Well, the Sony Ericsson W705 lacks such unique capabilities and in-call quality is rather mediocre. We were able to hear people on the other end, but their voices sounded muffled, while the very same people complained that our voices were extremely sharp and to the point of preventing proper communications at times. As we mentioned already, battery is excellent and according to the manufacturer should be able to provide 10 hours of continuous talk time, over 400 hours in standby and about 20 hours of audio playback.
The Sony Ericsson W705 is a typical midrange phone for 2009. It delivers comfy interface and pleasing overall look, capable browser and excellent audio playback quality (through a decent pair of earphones). We believe the manufacturer could´ve given the phone an edge over the competition if multimedia features had been properly implemented (video playback and camera performance). Still, we cannot deny that good midrange music devices that deliver both decent audio playback and rich connectivity options are somewhat scarce indeed (with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic being an exception). All told, if you need a similar feature pack, the Sony Ericsson W705 is quite good an option indeed.

- Robust battery (especially when listening to music)
