Sony Ericsson W610i

 

The W610 Walkman?phone is all about the detail, whether this is detail in design that builds on the look of earlier Walkman?phones or the detailed combination of mobile music with a credible digital camera.

Nice screen; decent camera; excellent music playback

Small keys; poor video recording

While it may not have great speakers and is poor at capturing videos, the W610i is a highly usable feature-packed phone that is both easy-to-use and reliable.

Sony Ericsson W610i

 

Walkman software, slim design, included 512MB M2 card

Small and cramped controls and keypad

A solid, if not outstanding addition to the Walkman line-up, the slim W610i is unfortunately let down by an unnecessarily small keypad and controls.

Sony Ericsson W610i

 

In my opinion all the Walkman phones by Sony Ericsson, like the W880i are great portable music players. The latest addition — the W610i — is no different, although we have had some unusually bad experiences with the piece we got for review. I'll talk...

The phone looks good, but doesn’t feel right. I’m referring to the badly designed buttons of course. There is really nothing new that the phone offers, with regards to any other phone in its category, save the music quality. To attest this, you can...

Is the W610i Walkman phone a good all rounder? We find out.

Sony Ericsson W610i

 

Sony Ericsson's W610i is a quad-band Walkman music phone with a 2-megapixel camera and A2DP stereo Bluetooth.

Good sound quality ; Easy to use Walkman ; FM radio ; Stylish design

Tiny buttons are difficult to use ; Earbuds won't fit all ears

The W610i's battery life is excellent. We found we only had to recharge the phone every fifth day with moderate calls, text messaging and music playback.

Sony Ericsson W610i YH : tphcm_82

 

The road to transforming the humble mobile to a hybrid device has been commonly trodden by most companies in recent times. Among the competition, Sony Ericsson has made the MP3 playability a signature feature in one of their ranges and can credit a...

For the rest of us who have smaller digits and are after an exceptional phone with flair and plenty of features, the W610i is certainly worth a try. It is available now from most network operators’ stores.
