Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Review


We fell in love with the Walkman phones, when the W700i was launched, way back in 2006. Priced at Rs. 15,000, it was one of the hottest selling phones, back then, along with the W810i. A good six years have passed and now the Walkman series has come...

The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is priced at Rs.14,400. It directly competes with a few older models in that price range – the Galaxy Ace, the HTC ChaCha (which is a couple of grands cheaper) and the Nokia 603 (with Symbian Belle). From the current...

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman review: Droid's got talent


Not the first time Sony Ericsson are trying to mix man and robot. But this time they're not simply putting the W in Android. The Live with Walkman is part of the company's ongoing effort to bring their smartphone lineup up to date. The next one due for...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.2" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480 pixels),about 180 ppi ; Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread ; 1 GHz ARMv7 processor ; 512 MB RAM ; 5 MP...

Poor screen contrast and viewing angles ; No smart dialing ; No DivX/XviD video support out of the box ; Non hot-swappable memory card ; No custom equalizer setting ; No video calls support

Just like its predecessor, the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman puts the music in your pocket without scraping the cash out of it. It's more than a music player though - a 5 MP cameraphone and a Gingerbread-powered smartphone with all the right features...

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Review


The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is the second Android smartphone to carry the legendary brand name. It is a mid-range offering with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 1GHz processor, and a pair of cameras...

Sony Ericsson Live WT19i Review


A tiny phone with a big voice.

exceptional audio performance, snappy design and finish

OS is sluggish at times, typing can be a bit aggravating, average camera

It feels a bit awkward using an older version of Android having being recently spoiled by Ice Cream Sandwich, but it’s more or less a fairly pain-free experience navigating through the menus and launching apps. Typing on the other hand is a bit of a...

Works great for my kids


I bought two of these phones for my kids for Christmas, and they have worked and held up very well so far. The sound out of the speakers is, well, not high fidelity, but is surprisingly good for the small size.

Good sound, everything functions well

None that I can think of

Consumer review by:



A very practical addition is the dedicated Walkman key, located on the device's top side, which acts as a shortcut to the Walkman music player app. Using the Sony Ericsson Live with a single hand is as easy as pie since it fits nicely in your palm and...

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman™


First of all, kudos to Sony Ericsson for designing a smartphone that does not have the boring-slab-o-plastic appearance. Yes, plastic may be what it is made out of, yet still, we quite like the Live's fresh looks and colorful accents, and we believe...

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman review


Although it bears the once-prestigious Walkman name, the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman isn't actually that impressive as a music player. However, for the price it offers a fantastic amount of value, leaving similarly-priced Android budget devices in...

Compact design ; 720p video ; Stereo speakers

Bundled 2GB card is too small ; Screen could be bigger ; Not a great music player

For all of its aural posturing, the Live with Walkman isn't really any better suited to playing your music than any other Android device. In fact, in many ways, it's worse.
