Sony Ericsson Yari Review
Performance and Conclusion:

The Sony Ericsson Yari delivers decent in-call quality. Voices sounded somewhat unclear and unreal on our end of the line, but were loud enough. As a whole, we didn’t have any problems understanding our callers. They didn’t happen to have any major gripes either, but said they’ve heard much better and rated us 7/10.

Similarly to most Sony Ericsson feature phones, the Yari is equipped with quite a robust battery that provides about 10 hours of continuous calls (over 2G networks) and up to 19 days in standby.

As a whole, the Sony Ericsson Yari is a likeable slider with cool design and proper functionality. The games it comes with are decent, but by no means superior to what´s available for rivalling handsets. Owners of Nokia cell phones with support for N-Gage (Nokia N81, N85, 5320 XpressMusic etc) can get similar titles easily and the portal allows for downloads of trial versions, something that´s not possible with PlayNow Arena. The iPhone is another cup of tea and light years ahead – much better graphics, more complex games and smashing diversity at AppStore. If you are on the lookout for a cell phone that you intend to predominantly use for games, the Yari doesn´t stand out with anything in particular, but is a good all-rounder that would appeal to young people, especially given its affordable price.

Sony Ericsson Yari Video Review:


  • Likeable, youthful design
  • Comfy, snappy interface
  • Good snapshot quality
  • Proper audio playback


  • Amusing games that are a far cry from modern standards
  • Unhandy keyboard buttons
  • Few preinstalled games, all additional titles are quite expensive

Yari in Hindi means friendship, usually amongst the youth!
