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 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...

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 W705 - Pocket-lint


Announced at the European MTV awards at the tail end of last year and for the only reason that they needed something to announce, the Sony Ericsson Walkman

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...

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

Sony Ericsson W705


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.

Sony Ericsson W705 review


Can the latest midrange Walkman deliver the goods?

Walkman music player ; 3.2 megapixel camera ; 3G ; Wi-Fi ; 3G HSDPA ; Shake control ; FM radio ; Slim design ; Aluminium casing ; Good quality earphones

No GPS ; Back cover feels cheap and plasticky ; No 3.5mm headphone socket on bodywork ; Limited camera

A good handset with some great features that make it easy to access your favourite information but some of the omissions will be a must have for some users

Sony Ericsson W705


Sandra gets to grips with the stylish Sony Ericsson W705 Walkman phone.

The Sony Ericsson W705 is a comfortable, well-built and easy to use phone, though it does suffer from that awful headset connector. However, by adding BBC's iPlayer and Wi-Fi to round out its features nicely, Sony has made the W705 an attractive option.
