Review: Sony Ericsson Z750
The Z750a is stuffed full of applications. Many of them are trial versions of software, such as the (really good) Tetris application. But you have a wide choice of apps already on the device that don't require further download, such as MLB, mobile banking, MobiTV, XM Radio, and so on. What I really liked is that you can manage your applications and move them between the phone's internal memory and the storage card.
The Z750a has Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and a huge number of supported profiles. Using both regular and stereo headsets was a snap. They paired easily, and calls and music sounded good through both. We were able to push files back and forth, send contact information, beam photos, etc. We liked that it has a "powersave" option, which prevents the phone from being connected to more than one device at a time.
If you want to check the time on your phone, just hit any of the buttons on the side. They will illuminate the hidden OLED display on the front. The display shows you your signal level, the time and your battery status. The time is nice and large, but can be hard to see when outdoors. The clock can be set to small or large on the interior display.
