Sony Ericsson's 3G entry

Sony Ericsson Z800i

 

Sony Ericsson has gained a reputation of producing phones with the maximum set of functions providing with new standards in every class. The first 3G model Sony Ericsson Z1010 attracted great interest among users and on the market. This device gave...

The dimensions remained big (102x49x23.6 mm, 128 grams), having put the device near the P900 you will see it is a bit shorter but thicker. These dimensions are acceptable for the 3G phone today but in the end of the spring and the beginning of the...

Good menu interface, great external screen, Memory Stick expansion option

Poor quality camera, inadequately designed keypad, chunky size

The Z800i is an excellent 3G phone with an exceptional external screen, but a disappointing camera and a poorly designed keypad.

Sony Ericsson Z800i

 

A top-shelf 3G offering with a focus on multimedia, the Z800i is a real crowd-pleaser despite its bulk factor.

Rich, powerful sound ; Huge range of connectivity options ; Many multimedia features ; Expandable, hot-swappable Memory Stick slot

A bit chunky and heavy compared to non-3G phones ; Currently only available on 3 Mobile ; Varying Web download speeds

Sony Ericsson Z800i

 

The Sony Ericsson Z800i is a handset that blew me away when I first saw the features list and viewed the handset when it was announced. I thought to myself: "this is going to be the best 3G handset we've ever seen." When I received the Z800i soon after...

Sony Ericsson Z800i

 

Z800i is a stylish 3G mobile phone with all you need to enjoy the best mobile services. It has video, music and games, a multi-directional camera and you can use it anywhere in the world. When you need to store more, use Memory Stick Duo. Now you can...

Camera is usable but quality could still be better internal screen takes time to display when phone is opened

Would I buy it? Well currently 3G phones are pretty expensive, and theZ800i is no exception – you have to ask yourself whether having higherdata speeds and the ability to make video calls is worth theprice.

Sony Ericsson Z800i

 

I recently took up a 2 year contract with Telstra with the Sony Ericcson Z750i. Initially I liked the large dailling buttons. However, after some use I noticed at times the phone status kept coming up and the phone does not accept any numbers dialled....

Large buttons for dialling

The volume control is located in base of the handset and is always accidently depressed when one holds the handset ; This causes the phone status menu to come up and blocks dialling ; This feature also non-configurable

Sony Ericsson Z800i

 

This was the best phone I have ever used. Felt great to hold,

Excellent sound quality ; Very good pictures compared to other phones ; Clamshell design meant that it didn't accidentally ring other phones if bumped in my bag

Got a dribble of milky coffee in it and died
