Sony Ericsson Jalou Review

 

No taller than a lipstick, says Sony Ericsson - and that tells you most of what you need to know about the chubby little Jalou handset. It's meant for girls - and, like every other handset that's ever…

Great Facebook app, tactile keypad, cute design, HSDPA internet

Sony Ericsson Jalou Review by 3G.co.uk

 

Fully loaded fashion phone with good social networking features.

It's really hard to open, bizarrely, and it occasionally lags and even freezes

Sony Ericsson Jalou review

 

We review the Sony Ericsson Jalou, an ultra-petite flip phone aimed at the fashion conscious budget mobile buyer

3G ; Small and compact ; Good music player and FM radio ; Decent budget-priced features

Glossy angular bodywork is love-it-or-hate-it quirky ; Plasticky feel and keypad creakiness ; Average camera

Aimed at the style-conscious female buyer on a tight budget, the Jalou is more high street than high fashion - but if its looks appeal to you, it has an okay set of features for the price.

Sony Ericsson Jalou review

 

Gone are the days when fashion phones were more popular than a Kate Moss–branded dress. However, like a particular trendy slice of vintage finery, the genre is making a comeback and the Sony Ericsson Jalou is leading the charge. But is this trendy cell...

Looks great, helping bring back the fashion phone, Google Maps, 3G

No 3.5mm jack, laggy UI

A decent stab at resurrecting the fashion phone, even if Sony Ericsson's refusal to use a 3.5mm jack remains infuriating

Sony Ericsson Jalou

 

The Sony Ericsson Jalou is a clamshell cellphone aimed strictly for fashionistas: its 3.2 megapixel camera and 2-inch screen won't have any spec eggheads getting hot and bothered, but that's not the point. The 3G Sony Ericsson Jalou is a piece of...

Samsung and LG have been pushing their "chic" touchscreen Armani and Prada phones for years, but compared to the Sony Ericsson Jalou, they're size 18s. The Sony Ericsson Jalou is the new model on the catwalk: dim, but petite, striking and desirable....
