"An affordable and reasonable phone, but you can do much better."

I used to have the LG Chocolate but after it broke, I decided to get a new phone, and admittedly made an urgent and rash decision. I saw this phone for a cheap £50 and thought I may as well get it for the price. I have had the phone for quite a while now, and am definitely looking for a better and more fashionable phone.

The phone is designed as a mobile walkman. To be honest, whilst this is its main purpose, I have never really put music on this, since I would rather look a little more fashionable with my ipod than this rather cheap looking phone. The quality of the music however, is fairly decent, although I have had trouble stopping and changing to a new song. (I practiced with the demo music already put on, not my own).

The phone is simple to use. Finding your way around the menu is very easy and it is easy to make calls. If you are looking for a phone just for messaging and calling and not really bothered about applications, this is a good phone for you, especially as there is practically no real applications. However, if you want a phone for it's features, I certainly would not recommend this phone at all.

It has good durability, I have dropped it many times and not once has it broke. The battery power is also good. I can leave my phone on overnight, all day and overnight again and the battery power will have only reduced slightly.

For a simple phone, It's a good and cheap buy, however I cannot help but think there is much better on the market now.

Product Information : Sony Ericsson W350i Walkman

Manufacturer's product description

You'll draw admiring glances when you take the W350 out of your pocket or bag. It is sleek enough to fit comfortably with no bulges into your pocket or purse. Its unique flip covers the keypad for a minimalist look. The phone is a classy yet modern statement that is never out of place whether at a music gig or a football match. The W350's Walkman player can easily be accessed and operated even without opening its flip cover. With Walkman on top, key MP3 functions including Play, Pause and Scroll are outside the phone's flip cover so you can use it just like you would a standalone MP3 player. The W350 makes it straightforward to transfer music onto your phone. Whether your favorite tracks are on a CD or on your computer, all you need to do with the phone's intuitive Media Manager software is drag your tracks from your computer onto your phone via a USB cable. You can store up to 470 tracks or 40 entire albums and, once your music is onto your phone, it's also easy to navigate around it with the Walkman player. You're at the bar, and a song plays that you used to love... but you just can't place it! Sounds familiar? Thanks to TrackID, it need never happen again. Just record a few seconds of the song into the phone's microphone (or tag it from the built-in radio) and use TrackID to identify it. The phone provides you with the name of the song, the artist, and even the album so that you can download it and enjoy it again and again. You don't need to hold the phone in your hand to get the best out of the W350. With the Bluetooth headset, you can stream the music on your phone wirelessly to your ears! Your phone can be in your bag and you can still listen to the music, see which song is playing and take calls.
