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

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...

Somebody seems to think that the world needs another "Walkman" phone and have come up with the Sony Ericsson W705. We respectfully disagree.

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...

Sony Ericsson W705 Walkman phone, an aluminium-crafted slider with HSDPA, Wi-Fi and a 3.2-megapixel camera and LED flash.

The Sony Ericsson W705 also comes with a secondary camera for video calls and vanity shots.

Sony Ericsson's W705a is a Telstra-exclusive version of the W705. It offers the same design and features as the original model, but the TelstraOne Exp...

TelstraOne Experience interface, design, well-implemented controls and keypad, smooth slider, HSDPA-capable, Wi-Fi, 4GB M2 card included

Slider does wiggle slightly when pressed, incoming audio could be louder, no GPS

The Telstra-exclusive Sony Ericsson W705a doesn't offer any groundbreaking features, but the TelstraOne Experience interface is intuitive and user-friendly.

The latest addition to the range of Walkman mobile phones is the Sony Ericsson W705. Though this mid-range, HSDPA-capable mobile phone doesn't offer a...

Design, well-implemented controls and keypad, smooth slider, HSDPA capable, Wi-Fi, 4GB M2 card included

Slider does wiggle slightly when pressed, back cover creaks, incoming audio could be louder, no GPS

Sony Ericsson's latest Walkman mobile phone is a fine combination of design and features. It's the first Walkman phone to include Wi-Fi, and at this price it represents very good value for money.
