Sony Ericsson W880i review: Sony Ericsson W880i

 

Sony Ericsson W880i

The Sony Ericsson W880i has a slim, eye-catching design. It offers admirable call quality and a decent feature set including Bluetooth, a Walkman player, and a 2-megapixel camera. It has quite a long battery life as well.

The Sony Ericsson W880i navigation controls and keypad buttons are tiny and difficult to use. Also, it lacks an FM radio, and the music quality was tinny.

The Sony Ericsson W880i is a decent multimedia cell phone but we couldn't get past the poorly-designed controls.

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 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

 

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

 

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

 

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.
