Sony Ericsson Zylo review: Walkman rewind

 

A small and sexy music slider – that's what the Zylo is. Nothing more, nothing less. Sony Ericsson are probably hoping to start bringing up the next generation of loyal users. You know, give a kid a walkman and they will be coming back for more. The...

Large 2.6" 16M-color TFT screen, 240 x 320 pixels, scratch-resistant surface ; Quad-band GSM support ; Dual-band 3G with 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA ; 3 megapixel fixed-focus camera; VGA@24fps video recording ; FM radio with RDS ; Stereo Bluetooth 2.1 ;...

No 3.5mm audio jack ; No standard USB port ; No bundled data cable or memory card ; No camera lens cover ; No document viewer

Traditional sliders are a dying breed so having one of them for a few days made for a refreshing change. And a Walkman at that – someone at Sony Ericsson must have been feeling nostalgic.

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

 

Sony's Walkman brand has given a lot to mankind, from the first mobile cassette player to the Sony Ericsson Zylo, which we are about to review. We have always liked the idea of having Walkman-branded devices (yes, we are old school), but how ...

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

 

A good phone, and one that performs well enough for us to recommend it. A few basic flaws like the lack of a 3.5mm jack that is shocking for a Walkman phone and the lack of both flash and autofocus on the camera detract a bit from its charm.

Attractive looking, Good music playback quality, Great number keypad

Slow, archaic browser, No 3.5mm jack, No autofocus and flash on camera

Sony Ericsson Zylo

 

Both phones are fairly low end and really just seem to exist in order to refresh the rather dated Walkman phones currently in the range. Given the modest specifications and the somewhat tarnished brand, we don't imagine that these will be hugely popular.

An old-school slider with Walkman skills, can this standard cell cut it against modern day rivals?

Sony Ericsson Zylo - Pocket-lint

 

It would be easy to forget that the world isn't only about smartphones and that some people still want a regular handset. At least Sony Ericsson is hoping

XMB, FLAC support, HSDPA, reasonable video quality, nice keyboard

No 3.5mm jack, poor bundled headphones, no Wi-Fi, operating system a little tired and convoluted

There is little to surprise with the Sony Ericsson Zylo. There is also little to set this handset aside from similar models from previous years, from the design to the operating system.

Sony Ericsson Zylo review

 

The Sony Ericsson Zylo is the first phone with FLAC support, but does it hit the right note?

Good media functions ; Excellent widgets ; Nice messaging options ; FLAC support ; Internet features

Poor camera ; Proprietary headphone port ; No microSD card ; Disappointing sound output ; No USB cable

Though Sony Ericsson has recently taken care of the more serious phone users with the Xperia X10, the X10 Mini, the X10 Mini Pro and the Vivaz Pro, those looking for a mid-range feature have been left out for a while.
