Sony Ericsson Vivaz Review

Sony Ericsson | Saturday August 14 2010 3:50 pm | Comments (0)

The Vivaz is the latest smart phone offering from Sony Ericsson. The Vivaz uses the Symbian operating system which some people like and others really don’t so your opinion on this phone will be largely influenced by your opinion on that issue. If you are a fan of the Symbian operating system than this is a phone that you may want to consider.

The first thing that you will notice about the Sony Ericsson Vivaz is how light it is, this is a very light weight phone. In order to do this the phone had to be made mostly of plastic which gives the feel that the Vivaz isn’t really that solidly built, but that is the trade off of keeping the weight down.

Typing messages on the Vivaz is fairly easy, at least it is if you use the right keyboard. There is a traditional alphanumeric keyboard which works fine. There is also a full QWERTY keyboard that if fairly easy to type with. The mini QWERTY is the one that is a hassle to use, it is way too small to be of any real use. It pretty much requires a stylus to be of any use, there really is little use for it. The stylus itself is a little bit irritating since it dangles off the phone.

The camera on the Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a bit of a disappointment, it works fine if there is a lot of light but it isn’t all that effective in low lighting conditions. There is a flash, sort of, it doesn’t actually flash, you turn it on or off. Even with the flash on the picture quality isn’t that great in low lighting conditions. The same is true of the video camera, it works fine if there is a lot of light but not so well in low lighting conditions.

Over all the Sony Ericsson Vivaz a decent phone but a little bit of a disappointment. There are all the apps you would expect on a modern smart phone on the Vivaz but nothing that really stands out. There are other, better phones that use the Symbian operating system that are better than this phone. The biggest issue is it camera, so if you aren’t too concerned about taking pictures this phone is probably fine for your needs, otherwise you may want to consider a different phone.

Motorola releases Milestone XT720

p68 motorola milestone xt720Motorola recently released the Milestone XT720 that will be first rolling out in Europe. The Milestone XT720 is expected to turn the heads of those who love to snap pictures and videos with their cellphones at it comes with a sensor of 8 megapixels, 720p, 24 frame per second, and a xenon flash which is first for the popping-everywhere Android phones. The Milestone XT720 comes with Android version 2.1.

Other notable specs include:

  • 3.7-inch screen with 480×854 resolution
  • A8 CPU with 550MHz AM Cortex
  • Talk time – 9 hours
  • Standby time – 320 hours

The looks of this new release is pretty much similar to the Motorola’s prowling the scene of the Chinese market. It also looks that Moto is sticking with keyboard-less form handsets for now as they push for their goodies in Europe.

There has not been any update if the Milestone XT720 will head to the US. It might or it might not but we are guessing that they will make the European market as the barometer.

Initial reviews of this phone over the web complain about some shortcomings on the ergonomics department plus a bit of friction when you use the touchscreen. It is pretty much exciting to see a 10.9×13.7mm Android phone without keyboards but we hope it will not disappoint us when we get to feel it in our own hands.

Picking the Right Cell Phone for Christmas

Cell Phone | Monday November 23 2009 11:51 pm | Comments (0) Tags: , ,

xmas 5No matter what holiday you are celebrating this season, whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, a cell phone, a smart phone, or another type of mobile device can make a great present for a family member, friend, or loved one.

Choosing a cell phone for someone else is a tricky business, though. It is sort of like gifting someone a dog or cat, in that you have got to be one hundred percent sure the recipient will like what you choose. It has to fit his or her personality and his or her needs.

So a teenager, for instance, is likely going to want a phone with instant messaging capabilities, one that supports text messages and has email connectivity. A parent or grandparent, aunt or uncle, may prefer something standard and easy to use.
