The "1-Minute" Review

The Sony Ericsson W350a appears to have fallen short in this particular entry-level version of its Walkman line.

Unlike its more expensive and thoughtful counterparts, the W350a delivers on music, but at the expense of awkward design, weak speaker and sub-par call quality.

On the upside, the W350a has a wonderful 1.8 inch 262K display that shows colors beautifully, has an intuitive interface and allows you to choose from a variety of menu styles. The W350a also has stereo Bluetooth, USB mass storage and PC syncing.

Other features include 1,000 contact address book, voice memo recorder, alarm clock and speakerphone.

There is a plastic flap that folds over the keypad which, when closed, offers a set of dedicated Walkman control keys. The overall effect is that of a combination flip/candybar phone. While the idea is sound the thin plastic just doesn’t give the feel of durability.

As a Walkman the phone does a good job, but the overall package falls short when compared to other excellent Sony Ericsson Walkman choices.

This phone seems worth nothing. It seduced me at first with it's sleek design, but I soon found out that this phone is all but well designed. The flip feels awfully cheap after a few uses and the play-pause buttons on top of it were always touched when I needed them the least. The reception during a call seemed only OK, but it may have happened because the flip door opened always seemed in the way of my hand holding it to my ear and that might have caused it to move along my ear. I went back to Rogers to get a new phone because I trully hated this one. Be careful not to use more than 30 minutes before you go change this piece of junk because otherwise they won't be able to credit you. Less
