Sony Ericsson W705


SE's W705 handset is a well equipped feature rich handset that also makes a fashion statement.

Sony Ericsson W705 Review


If we ask how many of you are into listening to music on their phones, we figure quite many shouts and raised hands are to follow. But the question is rather “Do you like Sony Ericsson´s music phones”? Hm, the enthusiasm seems to have subsided a bit,...

Sony Ericsson W705a Review - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review


For Sony Ericsson phone fans, the last couple of months have been fruitful: first Sony Ericsson released the unlocked Sony Ericsson W995a Walkman phone with U.S. 3G, then AT&T released the Sony Ericsson C905a killer camera phone and the Sony Ericsson...

A stylish phone that looks and feels well built. Strong reception. Good music experience ;

Wi-Fi range is poor

A very strong music phone at a more reasonable price, the W705a is a good all around phone for those who want a Walkman phone but don’t want to sign a 2-year contract or spend $599 list for the W995a. The phone has most of the bells and whistles of a...

Sony Ericsson W705


Move over iPod; the Sony Ericsson W705 is a sleek, unique media phone designed for people who want more from their MP3 player. This phone has a slider design with some very interesting texture choices such as a textured design near the bottom end of...

Eye-catching design ; Wi-Fi support ; 3.2 MP camera ; Walkman phone that features a multitude of music related features

With the phone's 3.2 MP camera, it's odd that you have to actually open up the phone to use the lens ; No self-portrait mirror, which is otherwise common among high-resolution camera phones ; Some of the menus are sluggish/slow

This phone is excellent for fans of music and for people who enjoy listening to music on the go. It's easy to move music from your PC to the phone with included software and the USB cord. There is a built in FM radio feature as well. This phone is made...
