Expert review by : Ross Catanzariti (

Sony Ericsson W508a


Internal and external displays, gesture control, TrackID, Walkman software, 1GB M2 card included

Touch sensitive music controls aren't responsive enough, keypad is flat and uncomfortable, no 3.5mm headphone jack

The Sony Ericsson W508a follows a similar lead to previous, mid-range Walkman mobile phones. It's relatively inexpensive, best described as solid and has an excellent display. It won't wow you with its features list, but it doesn't need to.

Consumer review (

Sony Sony Ericsson W380 / W508 / W518 / W910i


I have used these batteries with an older Sony Equinox phone TM717. Although not listed, these are the replacments for that phone model as well.

The cost was great and two batteries come when ordering this item. Batteries have talk and standby time like new
