Beautiful, though slightly flawed

Pros
Camera is great with a good flash (if you're careful not to upset it), video quality is improved from old cybershot phones but is still fairly poor. Media player is a nice app, compatibility with both M2 and microSD is very useful, shortcut button is as always a great feature allowing easy app switching/starting. Contact fast search is cool - start dialing a number and it will show possible numbers based on contacts and previously dialled numbers. Good to see the video light make a comeback, very useful as can be turned on when not in camera mode, allowing you to use the phone as a torch!

Cons
Fairly bug ridden at the moment. If you can get an update many bugs are fixed however. Media player can slow the phone down when in use. Touch screen buttons can be fairly slow to respond, sometimes resulting in you pressing them too many times.

Conclusion
A slight dissapointment in my mind. Having preivously bought K750 and K800 when they were released, I was hoping for a greater leap forward from this phone. If it weren't for the sluggish responiveness of the phone and the issues I've had with updating it, I would love this phone as much as my k800.

Verdict
4 (out of 5)

Like a Supercar

Pros
The camera has got to be the biggest draw to this phone. On the British market it is the best there is. I compared a shot from this phone to the same shot taken with a Fuji Finepix S2 Pro DSLR which cost 2k at the time I bought it and the results were very close. Design wise this phone gently and politely tells you (and the audience) "I'm here now, don't panic. I've got everything under control". The 3 touch sensitive buttons below the screen are a dream to work with. The menu system is as intuitive as every other Sony Ericsson and the new Media Browser is advanced in features for a phone of this class.

Cons
The main buttons are a bit firm, if you have soft fingers/thumbs they'll toughen up a little on this pad. The directional pad (the ring around the '2' and '5') takes a little bit of getting used to, but once you're there, it's very easy to use. The camera takes a tiny bit of care at first for taking photos under dark conditions, if you have anything at all in front of the camera side you'll get a black picture, once you've got that sorted though, you'll get great pics every time.

Conclusion
This phone is a dedicated camera phone. It's first and main function is the 5MP camera on the back. It uses the camera absolutely perfectly and you couldn't expect more from it, all the features you'll ever need are there. The phone does however take a bit of getting used. The interface is slightly different to previous SE phones and the buttons can feel awkward to begin with. Within a couple of days you'll love it.Moving away from the camera side and onto the phone features, the contacts are fairly standard affair with individually assignable ringtones and messaging groups available. Nothing grounding but nothing missing. The loud speaker is ouder than previous models and clearer too. When typing in a number manually a feature called smart search filters through your contacts book for matching numbers as you type which is pretty cool.You won't be disappointed with this phone.

Verdict
5 (out of 5)
