Review: Sony Ericsson W760

For a music-focused phone, the Sony Ericsson W760 makes a surprising number of concessions. See what stands out on the plus side in our full review.

At a certain point, the new Sony Ericsson W760 3G Walkman music phone becomes more like a 24-hour diner menu than a useable gadget – there are simply too many options to wade through when all you want to do is have a cheeseburger. And some of these too-many options are just too gimmicky. On the other hand, the W760 is filled with some useful and fascinating (if sometimes useless and/or redundant) functions and features. The question is, do the gimmicks overwhelm the W760's usefulness?

The W760a is one the of best media phones (non-PDA) phones out for any carrier right now. It's incredibly sturdy, and these keys are NOT hard to find or press.
We have sold plenty of these phones out of our store and aside from the V9x, I would recommend it for everyone wanting something less than a PDA.
I don't understand this "Stephen Wolpin's" incessant use of the word "gimmick" in this review. Like seriously, wtf is a gimmick on this phone? It all performs fine.
For anyone not too sure, here is a definition of the word gimmick:
A device employed to cheat, deceive, or trick, especially a mechanism for the secret and dishonest control of gambling apparatus.
Now you effing tell me, what...
On another note... the screen on my w760i has malfunctioned ...
