Sony Ericsson W550i Review

Sony Ericsson W550i


As a result, a user gets a more interesting product for the same money - now it features 256 MB of memory which allows using the device as an MP3 player (about 2-3 hours of good qualitative music fit this size). The player itself was reworked and...

We should mention, normal disjoinable earphones are included, and you can attach own headphones into a standard connector for them. But the "drops" are enough qualitative, which allows good sound. Also we should point out the presence of a Disc2Phone...

Sony Ericsson W550i Phone Review


Quirky design and great music features.

No expandable memory for storing more music.

A touch less capable than the W800i but still great fun.

A 1.8 inch colour screen and excellent swivel open feature combines with dedicated gaming buttons to give action packed 3D gaming on the Sony Ericsson W550i. A quality Walkman MP3 player with stereo headset and 1.3 Mega pixel digital video camera are...

Sony Ericsson W550i


The Sony Ericsson W550i is the second phone in the new Walkman range and is a replacement for the now defunct S800i, utilising the same swivel design ...

Successful music interface from the W800i, intuitive keypad lock, 1.3 megapixel camera, comfortable keypad, 256MB of internal memory

No memory expansion options, screen could be a little larger, quite large and bulky, useless handle adds unnecessary size

The W550i is a cheaper alternative to the W800i and retains most of its big brothers features while adding a new swivel design most suited to gaming.

Sony Ericsson W550i


Sony Ericsson's second Walkman, the W550i, is a swivel phone due later this year that doubles as an MP3 player and a games console that can be played horizontally, vertically or L-shaped.

Integrated music player and radio ; Great user interface ; 256MB of internal memory ; Best in class sound quality

Chunky sized phone ; Lacks a memory card slot

If we were given a choice between Motorola's iTunes-compatible ROKR E1 and either of Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones, we'd choose the latter -- without question. We prefer using iTunes to sync music as apposed to the W550i's drag-and-drop method. But...

Sony Ericsson W550i Walkman Camera Phone


With the release of the W550i, Sony Ericsson has finally plugged a void in its product portfolio for a 'Walkman' camera phone priced affordably enough to woo students and young executives. Naturally, styling was one of the key consideration points...

Sony Ericsson W550i


I've mentioned throughout the review that the W550i has many of the same features as the W800i, with only little differences. I raised the question at the start of the article - what's changed? Well, the answer is, not a lot. In terms of features, the...

Sony Ericsson W550i


The Sony Ericsson W550i Walkman phone is a tri-band GSM/GPRS phone. For the average user, it's got everything you can ask for in a "frilly" phone.
