Being a feature phone run on a Java-based operating system, there are very few apps to note on the Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman. There are a couple of pre-loaded games, an FM radio and the Twitter/Facebook/Email apps that we previously mentioned, which simply redirect you to the online mobile page.

This gets a little tiresome because - as with the internet browser - you're asked to confirm whether you'd really like to connect to the internet every time, which is a chore. However for the target audience this might not actually bother them too much, since they're likely to be texting or listening to music more often.

However, the mobile version of Facebook on this phone is rubbish. Viewing pictures is pointless, given that they're presented as tiny thumbnails and the webpage is so squashed into the 3-inch screen, it's often hard to navigate by touch.

Plus, there's no easy way to upload images or video, so the functionality you're left with is simply to check out wall posts and messages. Not great, if you ask us.
