Sony Ericsson Yari review

 

Although it doesn't include Wi-Fi, Sony Ericsson's Yari does come with 3G support and GPS. The Yari also offers a regular 2.4in screen, capable of displaying 256K colours at 240x320. It's a slider phone with an alpha-numeric keypad; a 5MP camera and an...

Sony Ericsson's Yari plays it a little too safe. As a result, the Yari is a decent product but something that will probably be completely forgotten in a couple of months.

Sony Ericsson Yari review -

 

Well executed motion gaming, speedy browser, Facebook app, high quality build

No 3.5mm audio jack or adaptor, one of Sony Ericsson's lesser cameras

Sony Ericsson Yari review

 

November 2009 By Olav Hellesø-Knutsen The Yari is a slider model with almost the same size as Nokia N85 and Sony Ericsson W760. Out first impression was: solid build quality using the right materials without the cheap plastic feeling. Yari reminds me...

Sony Ericsson Yari

 

The Yari follows on from the Sony Ericsson F305 with gesture controlled gaming. It's stylish and feature packed with a 5 megapixel camera and HSDPA connectivity.

Motion based gaming controls.

Design of the phone is ordinary and plain, in contrast to its gaming prowess.

Sony Ericsson Yari review

 

The Sony Ericsson Yari isn't like other phones. With its motion sensing “gesture gaming”, this next-gen slab of wizardry is trying to cash in on the flailing limbs craze started by the Nintendo Wii. Does it work on a phone though? Read our Sony...

Gesture gaming, solid, slick build

No 3.5mm jack or Wi-Fi, limited number of games

The motion sensing games are a fun USP, but the Yari is our favourite Sony Ericsson slider yet on build alone

Sony Ericsson Yari - Tech2

 

The Yari may not be able to compete against the iPhone in mobile gaming but its gesture-based gaming is a very entertaining concept.

Sony Ericsson Yari

 

The Yari is the third of the weirdly named handsets from Sony Ericsson that made it out towards the end of 2009. This is also their second gaming oriented device following their budget slider, the F305. The company has tried take mobile gaming to a...

The Yari retails for Rs. 16,950 (MRP) but is easily available in certain places for Rs. 13,988 which is by far a better price to purchase it for. The design is not something that will have you clamoring outside stores and waiting in lines, nor are the...

Sony Ericsson Yari mobile phone

 

Sony Ericsson's latest mobile phone introduces gesture gaming

5-megapixel camera, gesture gaming works reasonably well, excellent multimedia menu, microSD rather than M2 card slot, GPS

Awkwardly designed keypad, plastic look and feel, no 3.5mm headphone jack, no Wi-Fi, hard to sit upright the phone upright for games without the stand

Sony Ericsson's Yari mobile phone promises a lot but fails to deliver anything new, aside from gesture gaming. While this is a noteworthy feature, we really can't see mobile games taking off on such a small screen. What you're left with is a basic...
