Sony Ericsson Vivaz Review

February 25, 2010 on 3:41 pm | In Cell phones | No Comments

Sony has been really a laggard for a while now. Sony Ericsson, which was once known to be the brand which brought novelty to the market, has been launching some really ordinary phones lately. The only phone worth mention in recent times has been the Satio. However, Sony definitely seems to up the pace with the new Sony Ericsson Vivaz.

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz runs on the S 60 v5 platform, similar to the Satio. The main aim behind this phone seems to be sharing of high quality images and video with friends and family. This is pretty evident from the stunning 3.2 inch TFT touchscreen with a 360 x 640 resolution, supporting 16 million colors. The camera is a beauty with 8 MP, auto focus, smile and face detection technology. A powerful LED flash enables users to take crisp pictures even in dim light.

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a masterpiece with HD video recording at 1280 x 720 resolutions. It supports internet connectivity with download speeds upto 10.2 Mbps. Connectivity is decent with standard Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP and a mini-USB slot for connecting to a computer. With social networking a rage today, applications like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace come built-in for easy access.

The phone has wonderful media support too. With memory capability upto 16 GB via an SD card slot, the phone is rich in storage capacity. It is ideal for journeys, supporting almost all video and audio formats for entertainment on-the-go. It also includes a GPS receiver and support for software like Google Maps for helping you out with directions.

All in all, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz is an excellent package. It has a good and easy to use interface with a wonderful camera and media capability. But at $670, it does seem to be a tad expensive, especially since recent launches from HTC, LG and Samsung offer better value for money.
