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 Review


Sony Ericsson keeps adding more phones to its Walkman series portfolio so that anyone can choose their favorite form factor. This time, we had the chance to test a promising Walkman slider – Sony Ericsson W705. I wasn't expecting less performance and...

One of the best looking sliders belonging to the Walkman series portfolio, Sony Ericsson W705 promises to attract fans of the brand and form factor. The excellent multimedia features, together with top notch data transfer technologies (HSDPA, Bluetooth...

There are two main problems that I couldn't bear: the low quality of the voice sound during some calls and the mediocre camera, which misses so many capabilities. Probably adding a GPS receiver would've raised its desirability, but this is only a minor...

Offering the same basic design as the W705 is the Sony Ericsson W705a, commonly known as the Telstra-version that provides a completely new dimension within the usability of the interface.This slider handset is certainly not lacking in an appealing...

Sony Ericsson W705


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

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...

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 W705a mobile phone


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.

Sony Ericsson W705 review


Walkman phone with Wi-Fi, good all round music phone

Missing 3.5mm headphone socket, no GPS

For their first Wi-Fi slider handset the W705 is a good inclusion in the arsenal of Sony Ericsson Walkman phones. There’s a decent enough battery life too, with 4 hours of talking or 350 hours of standby which is reasonable for any phone. With some...
