Sony Ericsson W760i (black, unlocked)

 

Editors' note: The Sony Ericsson W760i is unlocked and AT&T offers the Sony Ericsson W760a. Features are similar between the two devices, but the W760a adds support for AT&T's music and video applications.

The Sony Ericsson W760i has an attractive, easy-to-use design with a well-stocked, music-friendly feature set. It also offers broad world phone support, an accelerometer, and reliable performance.

The Sony Ericsson W760i's menus are the slightest bit sluggish, and some of its navigation controls were crowded. Also, it lacks a camera flash, and we're concerned about the long-term durability of its keypad buttons.

The Sony Ericsson W760i is the best Sony Ericsson Walkman phone we've seen, by far. It corrects one of Sony Ericsson's usual design pitfalls while offering a generous feature set and satisfying performance. We can suggest a few tweaks that should make...

Sony Ericsson W760i

 

The W760i is a solid performer, and we've found it hard to fault this handset during our tests. Yet, with strong competition hot on its heels, the W760i falls short of bowling us over.

Great Walkman music player, HSDPA data, Foxtel Mobile TV

Conventional-looking slider, No significant internal memory

Sony Ericsson W760 review: Walkman meets GPS

 

Sony Ericsson W760 made a name for being the first Sony Ericson phone to offer an integrated GPS receiver. With a large QVGA display, stereo speakers, Media Center and the 3 megapixel camera on top, the W760 packs a nice punch...

Quad-band GSM support ; Tri-band HSDPA ; Built-in GPS receiver ; 3 megapixel camera with geotagging ; Walkman player with Shake control and SensMe ; Media center ; Stereo speakers ; FM radio with RDS ; YouTube integration ; 2.2" QVGA TFT display ; M2...

No video-call camera ; Camera has basic portrait interface and no autofocus ; Poor legibility under direct sunlight ; Integrated stereo speakers are not impressive neither in sound qiality, nor in loudness

Both handsets share pretty much the same size, form factor and market positioning, so we think it's a safe bet the W760 is the true successor of W850, bringing the best of the Walkman range to the current Sony Ericsson lineup

Sony Ericsson W760a Review

 

The Sony Ericsson W760a phone carries through the famous Sony Walkman brand into mobile phone handsets. This phone has GPS and a number of other features, as it attempts to become an all-in-one handset.

A replacement for the W580 with 3G and GPS that faces a tougher field.

Better build quality and controls ; 3G, GPS improve speed and navigation ; Still a good music phone in software ; Good call quality ; UIQ simple, effective, and improved

Pricing is steep for the actual feature set ; 3G reduces practical battery life ; Proprietary headset/data jack ; Earbuds a step down from the W580 ; Access NetFront still a sub-par web browser at this price

The W580 has been a staple of GSM phone carriers ever since it was released simply because it does most things well (including music) at a low-enough price. Still, there were definite limitations, and the device now has a RAZR-like overabundance tha

Sony Ericsson W760a Review

 

With so many new phones constantly coming onto the market, some models seem to rely on flashiness to capture consumers' attention. Not so with the Sony Ericsson W760a, a slider Walkman handset that feels well made and solid enough to continue providing...

It is rare to find a phone without at least one or two major design problems, so the W760a was a pleasant surprise. Aside from mild inconveniences such as the flat keypad, this phone brings together a multitude of functions in a compact, sleek and...
