Sony Ericsson G705 review: Slide-o-matic

 

One of a kind is the last thing to call Sony Ericsson G705 upon as much as a glimpse. But conceited scoffs may be bitterly regretted. Wi-Fi, GPS and lightning fast data are likely to turn the snooty sneer into...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and HSDPA 7.2 Mbps/tri-band HSDPA for US version ; Built-in GPS with A-GPS function, Wayfinder Navigator software, geotagging ; Wi-Fi b/g with DLNA and SIP support, Bluetooth (with A2DP), USB v2.0 ; 2.4" 256K-color TFT display ;...

Cheapo looking materials ; No office document viewer ; Video recording limited to QVGA resolution at 15fps ; M2 card slot is under the battery cover

Now, one of a kind may be not precisely right but the G705 is pretty darn close. The handset is only the second feature phone in the Sony Ericsson Generation Web lineup. To narrow it down even further, the G705 is only the company's second feature...

The G705 looks like a nicely designed slider, but without any new technology or a smartphone OS to lure us to it, the G705 will have to be priced carefully, or we expect it to be lost amongst the crowd.

The G705 sports a 2.4" screen which enhances the premium web experience, whether you are searching Google direct from your idle screen, checking emails through the phone's Exchange ActiveSync capabilities or using Wi-Fi to access the latest news.

SE managed to cram a lot of functionality into the G705 without it growing too complex. We believe that the G705 will set the standard to which all mid-range phones will aspire.

Another thing of note is that the G705 has a music-minded sibling in Sony Ericsson's portfolio. The W705 comes with a different and, to be frank, better-looking design, enhanced music player (in the way of software, rather than audio quality), bigger...

The bundled motion sensor allows the G705 to rotate the screen automatically, be it in the web-browser or image gallery

Динамик в аппарате один, он звучит неплохо, достаточно громко, аппарат слышно в разных условиях. Правда, от модели такого размера ожидаешь подсознательно, что она будет греметь во всю мощь, но этого нет, все сходно с другими моделями от Sony Ericsson с...

The Sony Ericsson G705 smartphone features a wide range of Internet friendly features for web browsing on the move. It's got a 2.4-inch screen for viewing emails and websites and an able HTML browser and Wi-Fi for replicating that desktop experience....

Who needs a smartphone? This smart little slider is packed with tech, feels smoother than an oiled otter to use and is a bargain to boot. Sony Ericsson G705 is tagged with Sony Ericsson and mobile phone. Select a tag (Sony Ericsson, for example) to...
