Sony Ericsson Zylo - Pocket-lint

 

As a simple mobile phone it works well enough and is simple to use, with good messaging for those who don't want to be overwhelmed in the new world of

XMB, FLAC support, HSDPA, reasonable video quality, nice keyboard

No 3.5mm jack, poor bundled headphones, no Wi-Fi, operating system a little tired and convoluted

There is little to surprise with the Sony Ericsson Zylo. There is also little to set this handset aside from similar models from previous years, from the design to the operating system.

Sony Ericsson Zylo review

 

The Sony Ericsson Zylo is the first phone with FLAC support, but does it hit the right note?

Good media functions ; Excellent widgets ; Nice messaging options ; FLAC support ; Internet features

Poor camera ; Proprietary headphone port ; No microSD card ; Disappointing sound output ; No USB cable

Though Sony Ericsson has recently taken care of the more serious phone users with the Xperia X10, the X10 Mini, the X10 Mini Pro and the Vivaz Pro, those looking for a mid-range feature have been left out for a while.

The Sony Ericsson Zylo is SE's latest Walkman phone, capable of handling lossless audio files as well as offering an equaliser and a whole bunch of customisation features. Could this be the music phone…

Sony Ericsson Zylo review -

 

Great audio quality for the price; lightweight but good-quality design; preloaded Facebook, Twitter and MySpace

Social networking widgets are slow to navigate, apps at PlayNow Arena are comparatively very expensive

Meet the Zylo : Sony Ericsson Zylo W20i

 

As well as some imaginative colour naming, Sony Ericsson sometimes takes the same approach when naming its devices. One example is the Zylo.

The usual range of telephonic voice and text options are available. You have a phonebook with around 2000 entries, task list, notes, alarm, calendar, calculator and stop watch to mention just some. There are options to use GPS location-based services,...

Review of Sony Ericsson W20i Zylo

 

It is an open question for me if this handset attracts SE fans, who already used its music phones before. It looks like a good replacement of Sony Ericsson W580i or W595i. This choice will be slightly conservative, but not everybody buys only the...

The Zylo is yet another addition to the Walkman range and although it falls a fair distance short of perfect Sony Ericsson are more than likely to continue is this same direction as long as they have the success. I see the Zylo as another ‘easy’ option...

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

 

Sony Ericsson is bringing music to the masses with this inexpensive slider running the Walkman software – does it represent power to the people or revolution blues?

As a cheap and cheerful music device the Zylo has a lot of plus points. First and foremost is an excellent implementation of Sony Ericsson’s renowned Walkman software, with support for lots of audio (and video) formats. Navigation is hampered severely...
