Sony Ericsson Yari review: Move to play

 

Make way Nintendo Wii and Project Natal – the Sony Ericsson Yari can play both motion-based games and camera-tracked gesture controlled games. A 5MP camera and GPS in an attractive package and of course great audio...

Quad-band GSM support ; Tri-band 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 1.8 Mbps support ; 2.4” 16M-color display (240 x 320 pixels) ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash ; VGA video recording at 30fps ; Gesture-based gaming ; Accelerometer for...

Signal reception issues (could be unit-specific) ; Uncomfortable soft keys and keypad ; Camera produces bland, low-contrast photos ; No standard USB and audio ports ; Preinstalled gesture-based games not very impressive ; So-called "gaming keys" don't...

What’s all this gesture gaming we’re going on about? Simple, well, sort of – Yari uses its secondary camera to track motion so that you can use your body to control the game, like the impressive Project Natal demos you might have seen (and if you...

Sony Ericsson Yari

 

The Yari looks great but doesn't have stellar features or applications. If you're in it for the games then be prepared for a serious disappointment.

Sharp design, Great battery life, MS Exchange email support, Good camera

Gesture games are rubbish, No 3.5mm headphone socket, Keypad design makes texting difficult

Sony Ericsson Yari : Gesture Gaming on Mobile

 

With the Yari U100i, Sony Ericsson has brought gesture gaming on the mobile platform. A tiny camera located in the top of the screen on Sony Ericsson Yari acts as an interface to enhance the gesture gaming facility on the phone. However, the overall...

Sony Ericsson Yari Review

 

Sony Ericsson U100, codenamed Yari, is one of the few handsets that doesn't belong to a certain class, such as Walkman or Cybershot, but that isn't a low-budget phone either. Its slider form factor, as well as the common look is definitely not...

Some of the best features of the phone are multimedia-related, but also regard the connectivity ones (such as HSDPA). I would list here excellent HSDPA functionality, GPS receiver with Google Maps, 5-megapixel camera, excellent audio quality, support...

The main problem of the phone is definitely the defective keypad, which makes even the dialing process annoying. I've also been disappointed by the fact that the dedicated game keys are not useful during gaming. Two more negative points of the phone...

Sony Ericsson Yari

 

Using the built-in accelerometer, the Yari allows "gesture controlled" gaming - imagine using your phone a bit like a Wii controller, and you get the general idea. Sony Ericsson say that the Yari is unique in this respect outside of Japan, and give...
