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 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...

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman pictures and hands-on

 

Walkman has landed on Android in the form of the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman. It's an Android 2.3 device, compact, but not the sexiest phone that Sony Ericsson make, an accolade we give to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S . With a 3.2-inch screen,...

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.

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Review

 

A 1Ghz processor and Walkman branding makes for an appealing device.

1Ghz processor keeps everything smooth ; UI modifications are pleasant and unobtrusive ; Affordable

Low screen resolution

The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is a surprisingly good device. If you can look past the Walkman branding of old and accept this for the long lost budget Xperia device that it is, you'll find a good all round package.

But nobody will buy this phone for the specs, it is a mass market music phone. And apart from in the shortage of storage capacity out of the box it does its job admirably.

Reviving the Walkman with Android: Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Review

 

The Walkman series of handsets by Sony Ericsson was adored by many around the globe. However the company changed its focus on smartphones with its Xperia range. We even heard the company announcing that they will be only focussing on smartphones from...

Well, I'll be honest, there's nothing fancy about the Walkman player on the smartphone. It is a normal music player which we have been seeing on almost every Xperia smartphone. The only two noticeable things are the light effects on top of the handset,...

The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman, as its name suggests, is a smartphone aimed at music-lovers, and the first of Sony's Walkman-branded smartphones to arrive equipped with Google's Android software. However, with its mid-range features and pint-sized...

Taking its price into consideration, the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is a decent Android smartphone. It runs the latest version of Gingerbread software, and packs a 1GHz processor, a decent music player and a fairly-good camera. However, the...
