Review: Sony Ericsson W810
Other than the W810 dropping calls (which Sony Ericsson has promised is due to the early software on our review unit) all of our complaints about the W810 are literally nit-picking. The phone gets all the big things right, and when a company gets the obvious stuff right (which too few manufacturers do, even today), that makes it easier to focus on the details of the phone's operation. The flaws and annoyances we have mentioned do not make the W810 a bad phone, in fact we were rather impressed with it. What we noticed was that with a phone so close to getting everything right, we really wished Sony Ericsson had been able to go all the way. Still this phone is much closer to being a good converged mobile device than most others, even most other smartphones. The camera and phone features are excellent, and the music player is good for short stints. On most days the W810 could replace a pocket full of gadgets.

A really important segment of the mobile market is devices for young kids. Mobile technology provides communication and safety features that feel essential, but how young is too young for a phone?
Motorola's newest flagship phone ticks all the standard boxes for a high-end phone, but it also has one totally unique feature: a wide-angle camera with a full 50 megapixel resolution, the same as the main camera. The selfie camera has a similarly unheard-of resolution at 60 megapixel.

The case has a 1.45-inch touch screen that lets users easily and intuitively control features like ANC and ambient sound that would normally require opening a dedicated app on your phone or remembering a complex set of touch gestures.
