Despite a pricey retail tag of $229.99 from AT&T, singing a two-year service contract (which is often standard in the U.S. when purchasing a cell phone today) brings the price down to a manageable $79.99. Online discounts and other specials can knock the cost down even further to $29.99.
Buried in the W350's details, we also have one other interesting perk: its talk time.
The Sony Ericsson W350 looks fantastic, but its performance doesn't quite live up. Perhaps we've been spoiled by the high-end Walkman experience we've had on other Sony Ericsson phones, like the but as a bargain phone, with a low-resolution screen and some flimsy hardware, the Walkman experience just doesn't work. We love the design, but when the tiny buttons and difficult controls make using the device more difficult, that love begins to wane.
design is fairly functional
Had Nokia originally positioned this phone as the low-end N-series model, we wouldn't have been so inclined to compare it to the N95, a phone that recently impressed us a great deal. It has some good calling and messaging features, and the Symbian OS has a wide range of available apps, but the phone disappoints in areas where N-series phones usually shine, especially with its camera.
carrier's first 3G Symbian smart phone
There are a lot of good points to the Nokia N75, including UMTS support, advanced multimedia capabilities, and excellent call quality, but ultimately, its poor talk time battery life and other restrictions leave us disappointed in the smart phone.
the N75 is a nice phone
In general, we love Nokia S60 phones. While the N75 doesn't earn our outright love, it still gets a positive nod. The good features outweigh the bad, and indeed there are many good features like the fantastic display, easy to use S60 interface and software, good music playback quality and features, Cingular Video support, excellent voice quality and good call volume, strong speakerphone and 2MP camera. It's a smartphone that's easy to use and sync and it has good multimedia skills.
the sound quality was fairly good for a phone - while it won't blow you away it is more than bearable, which is a lot more than we can say for plenty of other handsets which include headphones.
It may not be as razor thin as its predecessor, but the RAZR V3x brings to the table a good set of features in a stylish package.
