Sony Ericsson P1i (Unlocked) review: Sony Ericsson P1i (Unlocked)


Like Nokia, many of Sony Ericsson's smartphones don't usually get picked up by U.S. carriers, which is a shame since the company produces some very capable and popular devices. The latest example being the Sony Ericsson P1i. Luckily, you can purchase...

The Sony Ericsson P1i features a beautiful touch screen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The Symbian smartphone also offers robust e-mail capabilities, productivity apps for the mobile professional, and good call quality.

The P1i doesn't support U.S. 3G networks and performance is sluggish at times. The interface can also be overcomplicated, and you're limited to Sony's proprietary headset and expansion cards.

The Sony Ericsson P1i is a nice upgrade to its predecessor and offers an alternative to today's Windows Mobile and Palm smartphones, but we're ultimately disappointed by the kludgey interface and lack of 3G.

Sony Ericsson P1i


The P1i has most of the bells and whistles a business user could want, but the user interface is a little quirky.

Compact design and form factor, Business card reader, 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity bundled with connection manager software to prioritise connections (e.g. Wi-Fi over 3G)

The dual QWERTY keypad takes a while to get used to, Minor interface quirks, No HSDPA, No 802.11g Wi-Fi support, No 3.5mm headphone

Sony Ericsson P1i Review


Sony Ericsson P1i continues the P series which started with the P800 model 5 years ago, in 2002. That's a very long time and I personally would've expected to see more P models available on the market � but maybe less but better is more appropriate for...

The first thing that catches your attention is the stylish design of the phone, and this is what I liked most. Music sound, pictures and battery are again some of the strong points of the smartphone. I should also mention that the device is 3G-enabled...

The software of the handset and the "not working" WiFi need serious improvements. In addition, usability is somewhat low with such a tricky interface (UIQ3). Smartphone experiences too many freezes and lockups, partly from the buggy software and too...

Sony Ericsson P1i Review


Verdict The P1i feels like a zenith of sorts for the P-series smartphone range. It's a culmination of the work Sony Ericsson has put into its smartphone series, which has resulted in a more realised device with superior multimedia weaponry. The Sony...

Sony Ericsson P1i (Wi-Fi & 3G)


Riding on the success of the M600i, Sony Ericsson releases the new P1i, a new business handset that smudges the line between business and personal lifestyle.

Sony Ericsson P1i Review


Last year I bought a Sony Ericsson M600i for several reasons. First off it was very small, fit easily in a pocket without bulging, and felt great in the hand. It also had both a thumboard and UMTS, both features I wanted. The hardware aspect of it was...

Sony Ericsson P1i


Sony Ericsson P1: the 5th generation P-series smart phone and the most feature-rich yet. Push corporate and consumer email, WLAN and VoIP enabled. 3.2 megapixel camera with business card scanner, media player and 512MB Memory Stick Micro.

The P1i is packed to the brim with features, and its only real downside is the unconventional keyboard, as well as an interface that will take some time to grasp. If you can get your head around each of them you're left with an excellent device on the...

Design, Business card reader, 3-way scroll wheel and back button, Wi-Fi, 3.2 megapixel camera, 1GB M2 card included

No HSDPA, No 3.5mm headphone jack, Steep learning curve for keyboard and interface, Small stylus

Sony Ericsson P1i review


A few usability niggles, but will the P1i's features make up for it?

Looks good ; BlackBerry Connect v4.0 software ; 3.2 megapixel camera

Not the most intuitive phone to use ; Only compatible with Memory Stick

Some nice features make this look like a worthwhile investment, but its flaws seem to overshadow its better points

Sony Ericsson P1i


The P1i is a good business class phone with a good amount of multimedia capabilities.

The P1i on the whole is a good phone that I quite enjoyed using. The few kinks it has aren’t too minimal though. Not supporting EDGE for one. But it’s not something you can’t work around. The keypad could be an issue with first time users, but like I...
