O2 Cocoon review

 

A distinctive and original music-centred handset

Iconic styling ; Hidden LED ; 3G with HSDPA mobile broadband capability ; Music player options

Love-it-or-loathe-it style ; No quick access to camera ; Low ringing volume ; Available only on O2

A competitive and well-featured mobile handset. It just depends on how much you like the styling

O2 Cocoon mobile phone - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

This is a phone that you'll either love or hate

LED display, simple to use

Fairly large

In our brief first look the O2 Cocoon looks very refreshing, in fact the only grumble we had was a lack of 3.5mm jack on the phone, meaning this falls into the same trap as the recently launched Samsung SGH-F300, i.e., you can't charge the handset and...

O2 has designed its own phone. We see what it can do.

O2 Cocoon Preview

 

O2's Stormtrooper-styled Cocoon is spoiling for a fight with Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones. But does it have the weapons to wage the war?

Hidden LED display is striking. Side mounted MP3 player controls. 2GB storage

Feels very plastic. Volume scroll wheel unresponsive. OS seems slow

O2 Cocoon

 

Just when you think you've seen it all, phone design-wise, somebody always seems to come along with something completely different. This time that somebody is O2, with its latest music-centred handset

Love-it-or-loathe-it style, No quick access to camera, Low ringing volume, Available only on O2

O2 Cocoon review: Music can be cool

 

O2 Cocoon is a captivating music-centered device manufactured exclusively for the O2 carrier. Although it's a last year edition, it sports all the sweet features you would expect in a contemporary handset - 3G and HSDPA support, large QVGA TFT display...

Quad-band GSM support ; 2.28" 262K-color TFT display of QVGA resolution ; Hidden external LED display ; 3G and HSDPA support with video calls ; 2 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash ; 2GB of integrated memory ; microSD memory card slot ; FM...

Sizably thick at 21mm ; External LED display turns off too quickly ; Short battery life ; Poor file manager

The O2 Cocoon is designed by the Syntes Studio, and manufactured by Pantech exclusively for O2. The user interface isn't just a spin-off but a new creation modeled in close cooperation with the O2 development team themselves

Consumer review by: phoneman (rightmobilephone.co.uk)

A nice compact but basic phone, holds its charge too

 

A nice basic phone - very good. Holds its charge if you are a bit lazy and forget to plug it in every day. One thing I do like is that its compact enough to put in a suit pocket without ruining the lines of the suit. I found it also easy to use and t...

Consumer review by: Lu (rightmobilephone.co.uk)

Overall, I was thoroughly disappointed

 

I went through 3 phones in 2 months. The port for the charger breaks repeatedly, and if you allow the battery to run down the phone won't turn on again. When pressing the buttons, you don't get the number you press (E.g. you press 3 and a 5 appears)....
