ProLooks good

ConsIs a bit crap, really!

I didn't particularly need a new phone when I bought this but it just looked so good in deep purple with hot pink accents that I just had to have it! The coolest feature of this phone is the 'magic metal' surface. It just looks like a standard phone with a braille pattern down the front, but...

Consvery unreliable,

I have had this phone for about 6 months now, so I thought it would be a good idea to write a review letting anybody out there who is considering buying it- not too! This is my fourth Sony erricson phone; and the fourth one that has broken within weeks of me owning it. Why, you may ask do I keep...

The W380i is one of Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones although I must admit that had nothing to do with the reason I bought it and I have never actually used this feature. I chose the phone as it is a clam-shell style, which suits me as I feel the screen and buttons are much better protected and...

ConsPoor walkman for a walkman phone, poor camera and ...

This is quite a cool phone to own at first because of the unique screen on the front and the music buttons on the outside of the phone that will amaze your friends for hours on end but this is more or less where the good things about this phone begin and end. The back off the phone likes to pop...

ProClear audio, outer buttons

ConsThe outer screen is hard to see in the sun

The Sony Ericsson W380i is a very clever phone. It has an outer touch part shaped as a play button, a forward button and a back button. When it is closed it vaguely looks like a mp3 player and looks very nice. The outer screen is hard to see out in the sun though, but it is a nice touch, rather...

Consbad quality camera and no video recording!!!

Sony Ericsson W380i is a very nice mobile with really great features like: It has a sensor near the camera and when you slide your hand back and fourth in the air in front of the camera, it silences the call if it is coming or snoozes the alarm. It has something known as 'track id' which takes a...
