I purchased this phone around Christmas of last year (2005) and once I got it, I knew I was going to be let down. The thing that caught my eye was the swivel feature. I really like this, and its super stylish. Its extremely durable, and mixed with a decent phone case, I havnt gotten a scratch on it.
With the MP3 Player and 256Mb of internal memory, I can get plenty of music, and AWESOME quality sound. And along with that large amount of memory, I can store tons of games, and have plenty to due. This phone has saved me MANY times of being bored waiting for someone, or waiting for something.
The other spectacular feature is the 1.3 Megapixel Camera/Camcorder! It is AWESOME! I actually own a nice Canon 5MP Digital Camera, and I find myself using my camera phone MORE than the Canon! Its awesome. And since it comes with a USB Cable, which saves you time AND money sending pictures and video directly to your PC instead of emailing them.
And then there is the Bluetooth. Sony Ericsson always uses the newest latest BT Technology, and by far have had the best transfer speeds I have seen on any phone.
And last but not least, the Battery Life....... Sony Ericssons are by FAR the best phones for it. With the newest and latest Lithium Polymer Batteries, their phones can stay charged and on longer than ANY other phone on the market.
Ease of Use: A+
There is nothing bad I can say about this phone, and thats a fact. If your looking for an easy to use, fully featured multimedia phone, then this is the one to get!
I had seen this phone at Cingular stores for a while and really liked it. The swivel design was sleek and new at the time and really dug the loud orange color making it totally different, standing out from other Cingular phones. I did not buy it when I first saw it because I am not one of those people that switches phones every time a new style comes out. Not because I wouldn't like to but because I can't afford to. Anyways, I held out until after almost 3 years, my old cell phone finally bit the dust. (It was also a Sony Ericsson - there's alot to be said about their quality!) When I went to get a new phone, there was some pretty cool stuff out, but this W600i was long gone from stores. No problem, that's what Ebay is for.
Now I finally have what I guess I would say was my dream phone. I got a good deal but the most important thing is I love the phone for all the same reasons - style, design, but also because it is a great little phone. It has cool features - the best being sound. I have various ringtones for certain callers and I always love to hear the music when calls come through, it plays so loud on speaker and the sound quality is wonderful. The screen is the perfect size, it is very easy to use and navigate through because the buttons are not tiny and the keypad makes texting so much easier than the last phone i had. I think as far as regular keypads, it's one of the easiest to manuever (unless it's one of those qwerty things with all the letter keys and symbols).
Anyways, there are only two things I have to say I don't ABSOLUTLEY love on this phone. They are both related to one another so i dont know which should go first ... ONE: that little button that you get onto the internet with, you know the one that links you to the browser? Well it is on the front of the phone so I am always inadvertantly logged into the browser beacause TWO: the lock feature on the phone is not the best. The lock switch is on the side of the phone and it is very sensitive so sometime I lock it and it unlocks itself as it slips into my purse. It can also "unlock" itself if the phone is swiveled slightly open. So if I lock it and have it in my pocket and it swivels- even partially open, it unlocks itself. I dont like this because my last phone you had to like press two different buttons consecutively to unlock the keypad (like menu and * or something like that). So accidently launching the browser was not an issue. Plus, data usage isn't free even if your not technically using it. Once your browser is open, the charges start racking up.
Other than these minor issues, I LOVE THIS PHONE and would totally recommend it!!!
HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL!!
Pro: Great Battery Life, Speaker loud and clear, rich features, quality camera for a phone,
Con: Phone is a little over weighted, swiwel can only go one way to close it, heavy background noise from background using headphone. No memory expension.
I got this phone from cingular, im very impressed with the phone's features, it covers all the way from music playing to a bright flashlight. Although this phone's MP3 sound quality is not as good as ipod, you can use the speaker instead which are very loud. It doesn't have a memory card slot, comes with 256mb memory.. it was enough for me because I didn't load any songs besides a couple for ringtone. Bluetooh sync is very easy, bascially drag files in and out. Calandar and phoenbook works well with iCal and Mac's addressbook.
Excellent Battery life. Controls are faily easy and call quality is great.
I could recommend this phone as a rich featured phone, but not as an Mp3 player.
I love this phone. It is simple and stylish. With this phone I get a great signal even when noone else does. Has wonderful speakers that belt out your favorite ringtones crystal clear thanks to the fact that it is also an mp3 player. It is very easy to download your songs right off your computer with the usb cable that comes with the phone.The swival style is far more sturdier than the classic flip phone which tends to loosen and eventually break. The battery life is unbelievably long. It has a fantastic 1.3 mega pixel camera that takes really good pictures and video. It also has FM radio which comes in quite clear in most areas. You can personalize all your settings and menus etc to make this phone exactly how you want it. I use it for an alarm clock every morning too because it is alot louder than my regular alarm. I have actually bought this phone twice because it has been so great and I was devestated when I dropped my last one in the river durring a boating trip. Oh, I almost forgot the coolest thing, the phone has a built in flash light! The phone does not have any negatives that I can think of.
I love that I finally found a phone that has everything I want and nothing I don't. I love that it swivels open, it's so different, and it facinates me. Sony Ericsson is a really good company and so I knew I would be getting a good product. Most phones have a bar system for battery levels, but this one has a percentage system, with color coding for the levels. This phone is really user friendly, and is great for people who don't want to worry about dialing people randomly, with a lock switch on the side as a safe option, there is no certain key combination to get it unlocked. The screen saver starts in about 5 seconds, so it doesn't use very much battery. I love the radio and MP3 player. You can also use the MP3s you can transfer from your computer as ringtones. It saves so much money since ringtones are more expensive than the whole song! It has a full digital/video camera with zoom, light, and a great screen! I haven't even covered half of the great things about this phone, but overall it was the greatest decision for a phone I have ever made! I love it!
