Sony Ericsson W205


The Walkman-branded Sony Ericsson W205 is a budget phone, but can its feature-set offer extra value too?

Sony Ericsson W205 review


The Sony Ericsson W205 comes in as the entry level Walkman phone. Want an MP3 playing music phone which swaps bells and whistles for a best in class portable music experience? Then the W205 is definitely worth a look. Read on for our thoughts on this...

Sony Ericsson W205 Review


Despite its music phone status, this is a basic phone for a good price.

It has a simple user interface, a music player and a very low price.

There’s no USB cable for music file transfers, and barely any storage space.

It may be called a Walkman phone, but the Sony Ericsson W205 barely fits the bill, especially as you don’t even get a USB cable for easy file transfer and the internal memory is tiny. But as a basic phone for a very good price, it does the job nicely.

Sony Ericsson are one of the most respected mobile handset manufacturers on the market, and with the W205 they are hoping to enhance that reputation. The design follows much of the same stylish design as other Sony Ericsson's, with a slide opening...

These days there are more up to date phones on the market but the Sony W205 still holds it on when it comes to music and style.

Everybody's telephonic needs are different. For those looking for a phone with a range of features at a sub £100 price point might like to consider the Sony Ericsson W205.

The usual range of telephony features are supported with this handset. You can indulge in SMS and MMS messaging while making use of predictive text. Alarm clock, stopwatch, task list, notes and timer are all included as are phonebook, calendar,...

The Sony Ericsson W205 is an old school offering in a world of social mobiles, unlimited music downloads, and smartphones entering mid-tier price ranges. It's a tiny phone that aims to just make calls and play your tunes on the commute. Is that enough...

Awful build

This phone could have been made any time in the last six years

Sony Ericsson W205


The Sony Ericsson W205 is an entry-level Sony Ericsson walkman phone for the budget conscientious.

Compact and affordable and does the basics well. Good music player.

Poor camera, so-so screen, phone feels plasticky.

The W205 from Sony Ericsson further increases the already staggeringly large mobile phone collection other wise and more affectionately referred to as the Walkman range
