Specifications

If you would like to know what you get on this phone go here for a full list of specs -> http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/corporate/products/phoneportfolio/specification/w350i

What I think of some of the features

Camera -> The camera takes ok pictures. It is only 1.3 mega pixels.
Alarm clock-> This has always worked perfect for me whenever i've set a time it's always gone off when supposed to
Battery-> The battery lasts quite long if you charge it up
Vibrating alert-> I really like this, easy enough to hear. I use this as my ringtone and to notify me of text messages
Music features-> You can organise music into different folders on Walkman player and skip backwards or forwards providing the flip is still on your phone.
Speakerphone-> Talk handsfree. You can hear quite loudly. This is good for me because the sound doesn't work as good as it used to even when it turn it to highest level.

Handset design

It is a flip phone available in black and orange, black and purple and some are refurbished in light blue or light pink. The one i own is the black and purple and i love
the design and think it looks quite sleek and girly.

Price


I originally bought this for around £60.00 but is now available on websites such as amazon for around £30.00.

Breakage

There are some negative aspects of this phone. I bought it on Christmas eve 2008 and recently (several months ago), the flip broke off. This may have been where i had
dropped it a few times in the past which made the sides worn, but it had also happened to somebody my cousins who live in France associate with. The other downside is
that the enter button breaks off really easy- this may have been due to the fact i used to wear fake nails and it pressed harder because i used to use the tips of them to
type. I don't anymore and there is still only a really small enter button to push. It's almost all come off and now looks like a thin bit of silver.

+'s

Good for texting
Easy to fit into hand
Pretty design
Fairly lightweight
Good for storing music

-'s

Bits break off of it
Flip phones may be considered outdated
Not nearly as many features as other phones of a higher price
Internet is quite slow. Takes a long time to load pgs.
