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.

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 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...

Sony Ericsson Yari review: Move to play

 

Make way Nintendo Wii and Project Natal – the Sony Ericsson Yari can play both motion-based games and camera-tracked gesture controlled games. A 5MP camera and GPS in an attractive package and of course great audio...

Quad-band GSM support ; Tri-band 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 1.8 Mbps support ; 2.4” 16M-color display (240 x 320 pixels) ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash ; VGA video recording at 30fps ; Gesture-based gaming ; Accelerometer for...

Signal reception issues (could be unit-specific) ; Uncomfortable soft keys and keypad ; Camera produces bland, low-contrast photos ; No standard USB and audio ports ; Preinstalled gesture-based games not very impressive ; So-called "gaming keys" don't...

What’s all this gesture gaming we’re going on about? Simple, well, sort of – Yari uses its secondary camera to track motion so that you can use your body to control the game, like the impressive Project Natal demos you might have seen (and if you...

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.
