Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro review: HD gets a Pro flavor

 

Modern always-on web-connected generation need so much equipment to get through the day it's a small wonder they don't have to lug tool bags around – the small wonder in this case is the Sony Ericsson Vivaz...

3.2" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, geotagging and touch focus ; HD 720p video recording @ 24fps with continuous auto focus ; Symbian OS 9.4 S60...

Camera downgraded from 8MP on the regular Vivaz ; No camera lens protection ; The S60 5th edition UI isn't the best in usability ; No auto locking of the screen during a call ; No DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box ; No smart or voice dialing ; No...

The term “cameraphone” emerged soon after pictures taken with a mobile phone began to look less like impressionist paintings and more like actual photos. Today we're at a point when 5MP are nothing to write home about

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro Review

 

After we already reviewed one of the buzz-worthy phones this spring, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, now we have the pleasure to run its keyboard-anointed sibling – the Vivaz pro – through its paces and see how it stacks up against it...

First Looks: Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

 

Similar to the earlier Sony Ericsson Vivaz, this new entry retains 720p video recording and the same Symbian S60 5th edition OS. How does the addition of a physical QWERTY keyboard and swapping in a 5-megapixel camera work out for the Sony Ericsson...

Cellular usage was moderate in duration, though we did spend quite a few moments on the internet. For these power draining activities, we received a day and a half of usage with the Vivaz Pro's 1200mAh battery, which is above average from our...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro Review

 

The phone would have been a winner, had it featured something like the Xperia UI. But with an outdated OS and a poor touchscreen, even with its powerful video recording abilities and hardware, this phone is poor value for money.

720p continuous autofocus video recording, Impressively thin form-factor and splendid looks

Outdated operating system, Poor value for money, Poor touchscreen

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

 

Although the slide-out keyboard is a major element, Sony Ericsson have managed to retain the good looks of the "original" handset, adding just 2mm in thickness and 20 grams in weight. But for some unfathomable reason, the camera on the Vivaz Pro has...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro - HardwareZone.com

 

Retaining the same 720p video recording capabilities and the Symbian S60 platform with its uniquely designed user interface, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro comes with some slight modifications such as a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 5-megapixel...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro smartphone

 

Impressive video recording isn't enough to offset a clunky Symbian touch operating system and questionable build quality.

720p HD video recording, stylish design

Poor build quality, awkward keyboard, annoying physical buttons, drab Symbian UI, resistive touchscreen, left-mounted headphone jack

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro can record 720p HD video, but this phone is hampered by poor build quality, an awkward keyboard, a resistive touchscreen and the drab Symbian UI, which looks and feels ancient compared to the alternatives.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

 

Does the addition of a physical keyboard make the Vivaz Pro a contender for your next phone?

Slim and small, Good pixel density

Resistive touchscreen, Dated Symbian software, Disappointing camera

Sony Ericsson U8i Vivaz pro

 

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro has landed, bringing a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to the company's HD video-toting handset, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz , which we reviewed earlier in the year. That summary does the Vivaz pro an injustice however: although it...

Great keyboard, camera performance, HD video capture, 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB memory card

User interface isn't intuitive and is too fiddly, Twitter client lacks features, lack of apps in PlayNow, browser a little sluggish

When we reviewed the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, we rated it a 6, praising the above average camera skills, but criticising the user interface. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro is a better phone for the inclusion of the keyboard, which we particularly like the...
