  1. Sony Ericsson W380i Walkman review

    Sony Ericsson W380i Walkman review

    7  

    Sony Ericsson seems determined to cover all bases with its Walkman phone range, with the budget Sony Ericsson W380i its latest attempt to corner the low-cost music mobile market. Hot on the heels of the up-market ultra-slim W890i and multi-gigabyte packing W960i, the clamshell W380i delivers a more modest line-up of features at a considerably more wallet-friendly price – initially around £80 on pre-pay or free on contracts.

    Nokia 8800 Arte review

    8  

    Nokia has never shied away from cramming in stacks of features and cutting edge functionality into its high-end mobiles, as its N95 8GB and forthcoming N96 testify. With its luxury line of handsets though, such the 8800 Arte, it takes a more refined approach. The emphasis here is not primarily on feature count, but on build quality, design – and, of course, desirability.

    LG KF600 review

    8  

    Every major mobile phone maker may be trying their hand at touchscreens in the wake of the iPhone, but with the KF600 LG has managed to come up with a touch-controlled phone offering something distinctly different. To start with, LG hasn't opted for full, large screen touch operation, like Apple's iconic handset, and LG's own successful Viewty. Instead, it has introduced a novel twin screen hybrid arrangement on a sliderphone chassis.

    Slipping the stylishly slim W890i music mobile into its Walkman phone line-up, Sony Ericsson is aiming to repeat the W880i’s feat of combining classy minimalist design with crowd-pleasing functionality.

    Samsung Solid SGH-M110 review

    Samsung Solid SGH-M110 review

    7  

    When something claims to be tough our first reaction tends to be "we’ll see about that." Samsung’s Solid makes much of its strong points – that is, that it’s capable of withstanding a bit of bashing and splashing that would floor less macho mobiles.

    Giorgio Armani Samsung SGH-P520 review

    8  

    Collaborating with a high-end fashion label may be a smart way to add some brand cachet, but Samsung’s teamwork with Giorgio Armani on its first joint labelled handset is more than just a style icon-endorsed trophy mobile.

    Samsung F700 review

    8  

    The term 'iPhone killer' is growing a little wearied, and while Samsung's F700 may look like Apple's debut handset – it's more of a sheep in wolf's clothing. That said, Samsung does have a few aces at the ready to convince us to stop coveting the iPhone, not least the presence of an actual keyboard and 3G HSDPA connectivity.

    E-Ten Glofiish X600 review

    8  

    The Glofiish X600 (£310 inc. VAT) has a bright and colourful 2.8-inch touchscreen display. With a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, images appeared crisp and there's plenty of space to view documents and emails.

    Nokia 7900 Prism review

    8  

    It’s all about style and image. While it’s far from unusual to pick a phone for its looks, giving a run-out to a mobile with such a singular style signature as the Nokia 7900 Prism is certainly making one stand-out fashion statement.

    In many ways the HTC TyTN II highlights the difference between the Windows approach to phones and the new Apple iPhone take on things.

    Motorola MOTO U9 review

    8  

    While Motorola has recently tried to revive past glories with its RAZR2, its latest MOTO U9 clamshell instead harks back to the less market-shaking but still much-admired design of its PEBL.

    Sony Ericsson P1i review

    5  

    On paper, there are plenty of interesting features that might draw you to the Sony Ericsson P1i. It’s a 3G phone with quad-band support that packs a 3.2-Megapixel camera and uses a jog wheel to navigate the Symbian menus.

    Samsung G800 review

     

    Samsung's G800 is the world's first 5-megapixel cameraphone to have a 3x optical zoom. But is that enough to put it top of the mobile sharp-shooters?

    Nokia N82 review

    Nokia’s standard S60 ‘squiggle’ main menu access button makes an appearance, as does a Multimedia menu key, which takes you into a carousel of recently used imaging content and music, internet links, contacts, games and mapping details.

    BlackBerry Pearl 8120 review

    9  

    RIM was up against it when it launched the revamped BlackBerry Pearl last November, going head-to-head with the much-hyped iPhone. But a few months into the battle, it seems the business brand of choice has achieved a crossover handset with the staying power to last the distance.

    Blackberry Curve 8310 review

    The Curve 8310 (free on contract) is an evolution of the handset, offering a few more features, a subtly different style and the same usability as previous BlackBerrys.

    Sony Ericsson W960i review

    Sony Ericsson makes a point of creating phones for pretty much every demographic, from cheap and cheerful handsets like the recently announced T280 to advanced smartphones like the P1i, including Cyber-shot models for the camera buffs and Walkman devices for music fans.

    Sony Ericsson K770i review

    8  

    Sony Ericsson’s latest midrange offering is sleek-looking bar-shape handset that fits easily in the pocket thanks to its rounded edges and slim dimensions. It’s flush all over, with no protrusions, including the keypad, whose buttons sit just slightly proud, though they’re tactile enough to keep you on track

    Sony Ericsson W580i review

    When somebody gets something right, it's often all too easy to take them for granted. So when Sony Ericsson brings out a new Walkman phone, the temptation is to ignore its impressive but, frankly, familiar attributes, such as an exemplary music player, media features, eye-catching design and fine useability, and search for niggling faults

    Nokia 5310 XpressMusic review

     

    Nokia seems determined to mark out some serious mobile music territory for itself, what with its recent N81 and N95 smartphone releases, and a series of high-profile music service announcements (including Nokia Music Store and its Comes With Music)

    Nokia 6500 slide review

    8  

    Logic might suggest that the Nokia 6500 slide is simply a sliderphone version of Nokia's 6500 classic candybar phone, but who gives a stuff about logic? Certainly Nokia doesn't seem to, as the 6500 slide is a very different mobile to the classic

    There's always room for a phone that's a bit quirky, offering something a bit different, and the swivel-screen F210 is bound to attract plenty of attention. And not just because our test model came in this season's Quality Street-wrapper pink

    Nokia 6500 Classic review

    8  

    With its Nokia 6500 classic, Nokia has produced an unashamedly elegant handset. It's an understated sliver of a design that avoids the flash attention grabbing of the Nokia 7500 Prism and the wallet-bruising price tag of the Nokia 8800 series
