Sony Ericsson Vivaz U5


Sony Ericsson's Vivaz is a good looking feature rich handset but has a few issues delivering on all fronts.

Sony Ericsson Aino Mobile Handset


Sony Ericsson's Aino is a great looking feature rich handset with a few quirks but a little bit on the pricey side.

The price tag on the Aino is Rs. 28,950 which may seem a little steep considering SE has the W995 a far superior 8MP camera handset on the market that costs a lot less. The MediaGo and PS3 connectivity is not enough to justify the additional cost even...

Sony Ericsson Satio U1i Mobile Phone


The Satio has a lot to offer but lacks quite a few basic functions you'd expect to find in most handsets that cost less.

Sony Ericsson K810i


There's no doubt that Sony Ericsson phones are the new in-thing. From being just another mobile manufacturer, it has risen to be a formidable competitor to Nokia and others. Perhaps the only problem with SE phones is that you can't always trust them to...

The K810i offers nothing new, and at its price of Rs 14,500 is not value for money. Of course, it has a good camera, but that's not the first thing in your list of necessities in a phone, is it? For a lower price you can get another SE phone – the...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz


You might say that AT&T's Sony Ericsson Vivaz is suffering from a split personality disorder. On one hand, it's a modern device with a sleek design and a selection of multimedia features. Look a bit closer, however, and you'll see an operating system...

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz has a sleek design, good call quality, and a heavy load of features.

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz's resistive touch screen isn't the most easy to use. Internal performance is sluggish, and data service is unreliable.

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz offers value for its price, but we'd suggest paying extra for a more powerful smartphone.

Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou, black, unlocked)


The Sony Ericsson Satio might have just been a concept phone at Mobile World Congress, but it's certainly real now. Available as an unlocked phone through SonyStyle, the Satio is billed as an entertainment phone, and it's certainly got the chops to...

The Sony Ericsson Satio rocks a 12.1-megapixel camera with advanced editing options and video recording. The Symbian-based phone offers 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and full e-mail support. The Walkman-style music player is also a nice bonus

The Satio uses Sony Ericsson's proprietary port for the USB connector and headset. The Web browser is a little clunky to navigate, and the Symbian user interface has some inconsistencies

The Sony Ericsson Satio packs in a lot of multimedia power, particularly in the camera department, but it also has a number of annoyances. You can get a better overall experience with other handsets and for a lot less.

Sony Ericsson Elm review: Green roots


It's not like good old-fashioned phones with buttons are going extinct – they are still the money makers. But for handsets such as the Sony Ericsson Elm sneaking into the spotlight is harder than ever – Androids, Symbians, iPhones, smart and...

No standard USB port ; No bundled data cable or memory card ; No 3.5mm audio jack ; Kinda short Wi-Fi receiver range ; No DivX/XviD video support ; No document viewer ; No xenon flash ; No camera lens cover ; Feeble loudspeaker ; Expensive navigation...

Cybershot and Walkman are out of the Sony Ericsson mix, and the doubters are perhaps busy telling you GreenHeart will never be able to rise to the same heights. It’s a completely different market and matching iconic, game-changing phones like the K750...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz review


Sony Ericsson's no stranger to phones with decent cameras, and the Vivaz with European 3G frequencies aims to be one of them; after all these months we've

Sony Ericsson Vivaz review: Viv A-to-Z


Sony Ericsson is an alliance of two tech giants and with phones like the Vivaz it shows. It's a gadget all the way, one that will galvanize geeks and charm the regular user. Eight megapixel still images and 720p video with continuous...

3.2" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, geotagging and touch focus ; HD 720p video recording @ 24fps with continuous auto focus ; Symbian OS 9.4 S60...

No camera lens protection ; No auto mode for the flash/video light ; LED flash not powerful enough ; The S60 5th edition UI isn't to the best in class standards ; No proximity sensor sensor to lock the screen during a call ; No DivX or XviD support...

A whole bunch of point-and-shoot cameras today boast 720p video recording, but are they not an endangered species feeling enormous pressure on both sides? For one, there are compact video recording DSLRs pushing down with competitive price tags, and...

Sony Ericsson Aino review: Sony Ericsson Aino


The Sony Ericsson Aino has a beautiful display, an intuitive interface, great multimedia features, Remote Play compatibility, Wi-Fi, GPS with Google Maps and geotagging, and good call quality. We also like that it comes with a desktop charging dock...

The Sony Ericsson Aino's touch-screen interface is limited to the media browser, it has no 3.5mm headset jack, and the navigation keys are a little small. Some may find the price tag a little steep.

The Sony Ericsson Aino's luscious display and multimedia offerings make it one of the better unlocked phones we've seen this year.
