Sony Ericsson Vivaz

 

With a full touchscreen interface and HD video recording this phone is sure to have wide appeal.

High resolution screen ; Excellent battery life

OS lacks polish ; Feels overpriced ; Resistive touchscreen

We thought we'd like the dedicated buttons for both the stills and video camera, too, as they save fiddling around in menus to quickly change the mode you're in. However, it can be a bit confusing as you expect the more pronounced stills button to...

Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz

 

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz carries the moniker U5i, telling us that it comes from the same range as the Satio that we reviewed recently. It loses much of the bulk, however, bringing with it curvaceous "human design". But does this out-perform its bigger...

720p video capture, camera performance, the Fast Port connector is gone

Interface hampers everything, Twitter application really lacks features, can't change music volume whilst keys locked

There is no doubt that the Sony Ericsson Vivaz offers a lot. It punches well above its weight when it comes to video and photos, offering one of the best camera phones we've seen to date. It does suffer in low light, however, and the LED flash won't...

Sony Ericsson Vivaz review

 

HD video recording - but is it better than the Satio?

Nice feel and ergonomic design ; Crisp LCD screen ; Camera easy to use ; HD video recording ; Easy to set up ; Comfortable level of customisation

Can be slow and glitchy ; Resistive screen ; Poor app selection ; Internet settings never remembered ; Extremely unintuitive screen lock

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is the HD-video-shooting successor to the Swedish-Japanese firm's flagship Satio model.

Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz review

 

A beautiful design with a great camera, however the Symbian operating system creaks under the weight of Vodafone's branding, making it a nightmare to use.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz review

 

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz smartphone sports a very stylish, curved design and records 720p video.

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a well designed smartphone with plenty of features, but it's ultimately let down by the drab and outdated Symbian operating system.

Review: Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

 

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro currently sells for $75 on a two-year contract with Fido or $50 on a three-year contract with Rogers Wireless . Under both instances, you’re not bound to a true data plan. It’s not technically classified as a smartphone, so...
