Sony Ericsson W902 Review

The W902 is a worthy member of the Walkman family and is a very good music device. As far as regular phone functions go it performed quite well; the sound quality is good at both ends of the line but if turned to the max it becomes too sharp. We cannot say such good words for the loudspeaker however. The sound it produces is monotonous and not loud enough, which makes it useless unless you are in a very quiet environment.

Sony devices have been very battery-friendly and the W902 is not an exception. The phone is claimed to be able to provide up to 9 hours of talks or 16 days in standby mode.


The design and the built quality of Sony Ericsson W902 are at good level. According to us, it main targets the male audience because of its “rough” and aggressive look. Sony Ericsson has not forgotten about the ladies and brings them the W595.

The W902 has a great display and music capabilities. This definitely makes it worthy for a high-class music oriented phone, but let’s not forget it also has a 5-megapixel camera. It doesn’t make perfect pictures, but it still is better than the W890. Overall we liked the W902 and would recommend it if you’re looking for a phone from this class.


  • Good sound quality
  • Long battery life
  • Great display
  • Rubber-coated-like battery lid
  • Good web browser


  • The loudspeaker is not loud enough
  • Transparent music buttons, but no backlight
  • Hard to use Walkman key
