Review: Sony Ericsson Z750
The menu system of the Z750a is a combination of the standard AT&T menu with some nice touches from Sony Ericsson. Hitting the right soft key when on the home screen takes you to the main menu. It is a nine-icon grid and looks the same as most other AT&T phones. Some of the icons open up applications, and some open folders. Those that open folders, such as the My Stuff and Settings folders, bring up list views of your different options.
If you choose to go into the Entertainment menu, you're greeted with a long list of the phone's different entertainment applications. Selecting the media player app brings you to the familiar Sony PlayStation-style menu, with the same icons you'd see on your PSP or PS3. For those that "live in Sony's house", this reminds you of which company you like to spend your money on.
The app swapper button, located under the end key, brings up a shortcut menu and a method for managing open applications. The shortcuts list comes pre-populated with some applications, but you can also add your own. Similar to the Settings menu, this shortcut menu uses a sideways tabbed system, and the other tabs let you control which applications are running and help you switch between apps that are active, and those that are running in the background. The Z750a can also run multiple Java applications at once. This is a rare feature.

In all, the menus are easy to figure out. I happened to like the fonts used by the Z750a and the colorful icons on the black background with white letters (based on the theme I chose) were appealing to look at while using the menus.
