The C in the C902 model number, as any mobile phone fan will know, denotes the handset is a CyberShot specialist camera phone, but otherwise these two could have sat next to each other inside a pod. As both are upper range handsets, your choice becomes simple – do you want the best music phone...

Sony Ericsson W902 is a neat and attractive mobile phone, with solid multimedia and imaging skills. It's got an excellent music player, a bright and lively display and, most of all, it's the first Walkman to take 5 megapixels photos. The relatively slim design and the 8 gigs worth of storage are a welcome bonus.

Unfortunately, the Sony Ericsson W902 has a rather small screen, while the mediocre camera quality and poor video recording are not quite in line with the high asking price. Plus, it risks getting outshined by upcoming Walkmans that feature GPS and Wi-Fi, like Sony Ericsson W715.

The Walkman branding and features may entice enough people to spend their buck but hardly justify the 100 euro premium over the almost identical Sony Ericsson C902.

Our overall impression of Sony Ericsson W902 remains positive and we enjoyed the time we had with it. But we can't ignore the obvious: it's anything but competitive with that 300+ euro price tag. We hate to say it but instead of making the best of the unique Cyber-shot Walkman blend, the W902 will be hoping for a late comeback as a reasonably priced and reasonably dated all-rounder.

Sony Ericsson W902 catches your at first glance, which is definitely good for SE's business. My first impression when I held it in hand is that I have something different from the old Walkman series devices. Apparently the phone finally has the 'wow factor' so much needed these days.

The Good

Surprisingly for a Walkman phone, W902 also distinguishes itself through its camera quality. Gathering capabilities of both well-known series manufactured by Sony Ericsson, Cyber-shot and Walkman, W902 becomes the first hybrid phone available for SE fans. Even if the price is still high, all the features included are up to the highest standards: camera, music sound, battery, data transfer speeds.

The Bad

I believe that a much better CPU would've been required for an animated GUI. Also, I think that the phone still lacks originality in terms of design. While it may seem to be compact and ergonomic, after using it for more than a month I think the construction of the handset is not up to the standards of the rest of the features.

The C in the C902 model number, as any mobile phone fan will know, denotes the handset is a CyberShot specialist camera phone, but otherwise these two could have sat next to each other inside a pod. As both are upper range handsets, your choice becomes simple – do you want the best music phone, or the best camera phone Sony Ericsson currently produce? Even then, the choice is not as clear cut as one may expect.
