Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro review

 

Take one Vivaz, add a keyboard and suddenly, you're a pro

Phsyical keyboard ; Decent music player ; Compact design

Cheap casing ; Laggy UI, Slow browser ; Over-complicated menus ; Resistive screen ; Average keyboard

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is a phone that's designed for the 'power-user' - there's no other way to look at it given that it's pretty much a Vivaz with a full QWERTY keyboard on the back.

Sony Ericsson U8i Vivaz pro - Pocket-lint

 

If browsing and apps are the things that excite you, then the Vivaz pro won't. But if you are looking for a phone that delivers a strong camera performance

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...

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 Vivaz Pro review

 

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro's feature-list looks quite complete and can compete with any of the other smartphones out there. It has a 720MHz processor and a decent mobile GPU option in the PowerVR SGX. It has a 3.2-inch resistive touchscreen at 640x360...

At £289, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro will put plenty of smartphone fans in a quandary. On one hand you have the excellent keyboard and the capability to shoot 720p videos. However, the phone has an OS and UI that looks sufficiently aged and is still...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro review -

 

Good QWERTY keyboard, preloaded apps including Facebook, HD video and decent still camera

Weak email feature, user interface isn?t as intuitive or customisable as other handsets, lack of central app marketplace

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro

 

Offering a physical QWERTY keyboards, a capable snapper and continuous auto-focus 720p video recording, Sony Ericsson's midrange Vivaz pro has SE flexing its multimedia muscles.

HD video recording, excellent camera, grip-friendly and funky styling.

Old OS in the form of Symbian S60 and noticeable lag on occasion.

Aside from good HD movies and quality stills, the Vivaz Pro is a woeful handset.

Sony Ericsson - Vivaz Pro

 

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro shares a lot of characteristics with the original Vivaz, and throws in a slide-out QWERTY keyboard which makes it more comfortable for those who do a lot of mobile email or ...

In the end, while the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro has what on paper looks to be a good set of specifications, including coming with an 8GB microSD card, in reality it falls down in several ways, not least the usability and build quality departments, making...
