Sony Ericsson F305 Review

 

There are a lot of different ways to waste some time while waiting for a friend or travelling. One of them is by playing games, which is the main purpose of the Sony Ericsson F305. It sports gaming-dedicated keys and stereo speakers, which should turn...

Sony Ericsson F305

 

It's a phone.. but you wave it around like a Wii remote controller. So, is the Sony Ericsson F305 actually a good idea or just something very silly?

The Sony Ericsson F305 is a motion-sensitive mobile phone that has an FM tuner

Looks good, wide variety of games, well-built, expandable memory

Motion sensing is not effective, small number keys are too firm

Sony Ericsson F305

 

SE's first dedicated gaming handset, the F305, is a good mobile phone overall and fares quite well in the gaming department too.

With a smooth interface loaded with transition effects; a well designed smooth slider form factor; plenty of games to entertain and a pretty good offering for audio, video and radio; a decent 2MP camera and GPRS/EDGE thrown in, the F305 is a good...

Sony Ericsson F305 mobile phone – First Look - Pocket-lint

 

As speculated across the Internet, the "F" in the new series of Sony Ericsson phones seems to be for fun. With the launch of the F305, SE are looking to

Additional gaming buttons, motion control, solid keypad

Some build quality concerns

Overall, from our First Look, accepting that this was a prototype and not a final version, we did have some concerns about the build quality. The real thing that will work for the F305 is if it can deliver innovative and playable games to take...

Sony Ericsson F305

 

It's cute as a button and packed to the gills with games to play. The F305 is a nice phone for its price, but there's nothing ground-breaking here to recommend.

Cute design ; Over 60 games included ; EyeToy-like motion gaming ; Good battery life

Not 3G compatible ; Flat keypad lacks definition ; Low-quality display ; Camera is poor ; No USB cable or software included

Sony Ericsson rates the battery life at eight hours talk-time and 400 hours of standby life. During our tests we charged the phone every fourth day when using it for calling and as much as every other day when we played the games for an hour each day.

Sony Ericsson F305 review

 

We review the Sony Ericsson F305, a phone which aims to change the image of mobile gaming

Exceptional battery life ; Bluetooth with A2DP ; Expandable memory (M2 card) ; Lightweight

Motion sensor isn't responsive ; Cheap build materials ; Spongy Keypad ; Rudimentary camera ; No 3.5mm earphone jack ; PC cable not included

One look at the F305 tells you everything about what Sony Ericsson was trying to achieve with this phone. Sadly, it doesn't take much longer to realise the company has badly missed the mark.

Sony Ericsson F305

 

The new Sony Ericsson F305 with Motion Gaming puts fun and entertainment at the heart of the mobile phone. In addition to horizontal gameplay and dedicated gaming controls the F305 lets the user control the action with a swing or a swipe of the phone.

All things considered, the F305 is a decent phone and will provide hours of gaming entertainment and all the free downloads from Sony Ericsson are a definite bonus.
