Sony Ericsson W760 is a nice attempt at creating an all-purpose slider. It's got all the goodies many users are waiting for.Although in dense urban environments our beta unit had a weakish GPS sensitivity, the amount of GPS applications is commendable - especially for a first try from Sony Ericsson....

If the W760 is within your budget and photography is important to you, this is a great device.

The first Sony Ericson phone to offer an integrated GPS receiver

Sony Ericsson W760 is a nice attempt at creating an all-purpose slider. It's got all the goodies many users are waiting for.

Sony Ericsson W760 is a nice attempt at creating an all-purpose slider. It's got all the goodies many users are waiting for.

Although in dense urban environments our beta unit had a weakish GPS sensitivity, the amount of GPS applications is commendable - especially for a first try from Sony Ericsson.

The Shake Control and SensMe feature worked like a charm and the built-in accelerometer was precise as expected. The integration of YouTube in the Media Center is a welcome change too. The NetFront web browser is as capable and fast as in the web-centric Sony Ericsson K660.

All that said, it seems choosing between Sony Ericsson W760 and W910 would be a hard call. The award-winning W910 is more compact and refined, and has a larger screen. With the difference pretty much boiling down to GPS and camera megapixels, making up your mind is a matter of priorities really.

Everything about the device is merely average

from MobileBurn

Despite the few bugs that were found in our review unit, there was really very little not to like about the Sony Ericsson W760. Its musical talents were handy, the web browser adequate, and the size, weight, and design were all quite pleasing. Its performance in basically every area was quite satisfying.

The most appreciated features on the device were the accelerometer and convenient media menu, while the camera put in a solid performance as well. The GPS location-based services were also nice, though potentially the most important use of the GPS, the Navigation application, was not working on our unit. As for things that we really didn't like about the phone? There is nothing that really stands out as bad on the handset. Herein lies the problem - everything about the device is merely average, there are no incredible standout features.

Sony Ericsson is marketing the W760 as a media device, a very crowded portion of the market. The W760 has to stand up to a lot of competitors, most with fancy touch screens like the Samsung Instinct, LG Vu, and Apple iPhone. The Sony Ericsson W760's camera is better than most in its market segment, but this is the only place where it can really gain any ground - except, potentially, on price.

For this reason, we are giving the device just a "Recommended" rating. For all intents and purposes the Sony Ericsson W760 on its own is probably worth a "highly recommended", but it just doesn't impress enough for us to put it at the top of the food chain. If the W760 is within your budget and photography is important to you, this is a great device, but there are also many other fine alternatives out there to consider....

Worst Phone Ever

Owned it for 4 months and the camera stopped working. I sent it in for servicing under warranty and Sony Ericsson would not honor the warranty.

Good Phone

My LG Shine had a battery problem and I had to buy this. I didn't like it but after a while of getting used to the cell its awesome! You can put music. Great earphones and for people that have zooming problems select your camera to VGA then you can zoom 3.8X. The only thing bad about it is you cant really pick your style of ring tone but I got somewhere close by tranferring my files to Music Ring tones through the computer. Only Con I can think of is the navigation system which I am still getting used to. Less

Pro: Awesome features... (Best features i've seen in a long time!) Great Music sound through speakers! Best camera! 3.2 mega pixel! has gps pretty good button size... They don't break like they did with the other one! Your screen saver can be a slideshow of your pictures... really cool!!! Very nice slide. Not a cheap crudy slide... very nice! When you slide it up in the back it has a very nice gold color... Very cool! Pretty clear talking. pretty clear. Con: Camera does not have a flash! I don't think it has a zoom. When you buy it with &tat it does not come with headphones. That sucks! You can't make your music into your ringtone. But you can record it then make it your ring tone. Using experience: 3 weeks Greatest phone... I love it so much, one of the best i've ever had. If your a teen it's made for YOU!!! Great for Pictures when your with you buddies and stuff. Way better then the other walkman... Has way better features! When your playing a game, if it's racing or other stuff you can tilt the phone to the left and the car will drive left, if you turn it right it'll turn right... It's awsome... No zoom on the camera i think.. no flash but great camers. 3.2 mega pixel!! ALL IN ALL... THE BEST PHONE I'VE HAD!!! Less

awesome phone

EVERYTHING I WANTED ! completely amazing. a must buy cell phone. slick, and fun.
