Review: Sony Ericsson W880i Cell Phone

 

This phone is so sweet; you might be tempted to scarf it down. Don't! The W880i is capable of so much more than just giving...

Clear, precise sound from music player. Works perfectly as a phone. Buttons are spaced evenly apart and provide good force feedback. Nearly inexhaustible battery. 3G Web browser is quick and easy to access. Includes 1GB Memory Stick Micro. Transferring...

Included earbuds are so bad, they must be a practical joke from Sony. AC adapter and headset plug into the same port-so in order to charge the phone and listen to music simultaneously, you need to awkwardly piggyback the two. (Unless you’re synched up...

SONY ERICSSON W880i review | cellphone prices in php | cellphones | www.CgeNa.com   

 

W880i is the slimmest phone Sony Ericsson has... just yet. And it doesn't disappoint!

Kung ikaw ang klase ng user na gusto ng phone for a phone per se, this one isn't for you. Pero kung ikaw naman ay ung klase ng user who likes a phone to impress people with, this is it. The Sony Ericsson W880i is the latest slim model released by...

Sony Ericsson W880i

 

Sony Ericsson W880i: The sleek and slim design always impresses the cell phone buyers. This gave rise to the competition to introduce the slimmest cell phone a company can manufacture. Sony Ericsson provided its version of slimmest cell phone with...

We found Sony Ericsson W880i a lot better than its Samsung rival. When we are writing this review, the cell phone was available for the price of about $600 which seem to be affordable for having such features as included in W880i.

Sony Ericsson W880i Review- Enough to Satisfy Your Musical Buds

 

You can also set picture size- 2mp, 1mp or VGA. Take a closer look on how they differ from each other

Expert review by: CHONG JINN XIUNG (mobile88.com)

Sony Ericsson W880i

 

At just 9.4mm thin, the W880i/W888 is the slimmest Sony Ericsson phone yet and combines the full Walkman?phone experience with a device that fits easily into your pocket.

Super slim design; excellent screen; nice user interface; feature-rich music player

Average camera; no FM radio; poor video quality

Anyway, you can't go wrong with the W880i as it is a solidly built phone that does not compromise on quality.

Sony Ericsson W880i 3G music phone

 

The Sony Ericsson W880i Walkman music phone is for music lovers who appreciate unique style and audio features, and who can manage tapping the tiny keys in the keypad. The device can play MP3 and AAC tracks, and can use them as ringtones as well. A...

The Sony Ericsson W880i is a fine MP3 player - and a fine phone, too. The product looks modern; it is slim and comes with practically all the features of a modern phone. The only reason for our lower than excellent rating is that we can still feel our...

Sony Ericsson W880i

 

Simply a stunning piece of industrial design, Sony Ericsson's latest entry into the Walkman range is one of the thinnest 3G mobile phones ever release...

Extremely thin design, brushed steel surface, 2 megapixel camera, push email support, Memory Stick Micro (M2) support with 1GB card included, Walkman function, Track ID, A2DP

Keypad and controls quite small, in-call volume could be louder, no FM radio

The W880i is quite simply an outstanding mobile phone. A lack of FM radio and small controls isn't enough to detract from the overall class and quality of this unit.

Sony Ericsson W880i

 

It was started by Motorola and continued – or shall we say, finished – by Samsung. Phones have gotten crazy thin over the last few years and in a few more, I'm sure they're going to be one-dimensional. Everyone has been busy squeezing the lard out of...

Quite simply put, this is a great looking phone, but it’s price only puts it up there in the high-end and 'must-have-what’s-new' category, with no real value for money. There’s no FM radio, no EDGE and the camera is just 2 megapixels, which doesn’t...

Sony Ericsson W880i review

 

Does it get any thinner than this?

Great looks and fashionably thin ; 3G connectivity ; Very good music player with 1GB memory card

Keys small ; No FM radio ; No flash

There's no doubt it's a fashion item but we're pleased to report this hasn't come at the expense of performance or features
