Review: Sony Ericsson W760

Form Basics Extras Wrap-up Comments  12  

The W760 would be far better served if Sony Ericsson had restrained it's engineering imagination and imbued the phone with fewer gimmicks. Anyone wanting a music phone and the freedom to use their own headphones might want to keep looking. Good music section plus no 3.5mm headphone jack is just one example of how the W760 giveth and taketh away. It's 3.2 MP camera takes above average photos, but the lack of fullscreen viewfinder and a external key to access the camera function are both annoying limitations. It's a speedy little devil for Web surfing, but the goofy cursor makes navigating more trouble than necessary. But the W760 does offer quick GPS location-based functions, its default white-on-black menus are more readable than the usual black-on-white design, its screen is among the brightest and clearest we've used, and it's definitely more pocket-friendly than the current spate of similarly-featured large touchscreen iPhone clones. The W760 is not a bad phone, but it includes too many compromises for a hearty recommendation.
