Sony Ericsson w580i Reviews


Great phone


Pros: small lightweight, great speaker

Cons: very flimsy, feels cheap.

Good phone, the speaker is very loud, it is a good thing if you are outside.  but if you are in a meeting or at work may be al little emabarrassing.  The camera is okay for candid shots, but not the greatest...but oh well better than nothing. The only negaives would be the build, it feels cheap.  It is also not the smoothest of sliders.  I also don't like the fact there there is a button for the web in the front.  It frequetly gets pushed when in my pocket and next thing I know I'm connected to the the internet.  I wish there was a way to customize that button.  Otherwise great phone.

Diamond in the rough


Pros: camera, radio, large memory

A few months ago the wife and I were looking for new phones and lucky for us there was a buy one get one free sale going on.  The wife went straight for the Palm Centrino.  I wandered through the store looking at phones and to be honest, I pretty much just go by looks.  All I really need out of a phone is the calling and texting feature which all phones can handle.  So if I'm going to have to look at this thing for the next couple of years it better look cool.  It's also gotta be comfortable to use.  For that reason I generally go for flip or slide phones.  Maybe it was just me but all the phones in there were pretty ugly.  Nokia might be a solid product but the styles are not attractive;...

Love it


Pros: Camera, user friendly, space for memory stick

Cons: none

This is the best phone I've owned. I drowned one and missed it so much I bought a new one. The camera is amazing at it has all the features one could want, including the internet.  

Nokia loyalist loves this phone


Pros: Easy nav, durable, FM radio, sleek and small

Cons: Haven't found any yet....

I have only ever bought Nokia phones because they last forever and are really intuitive to navigate. My old Nokia finally died and the news ones just weren't appealing to me. This Sony Ericsson phone has totally met and exceeded my expectations - the FM radio is key because I listen to it on my walk to work, the nav is very similar to the old Nokia menus I'm used to, and its camera quality, text memory, sound quality, etc have all been great. I'm a big fan! I've already dropped it once and nothing happened to it. Phew.

W580i review


Pros: Big screen, great battery life, very fast

Cons: not durable, horrible data user experience

This is a fantastic phone in general.  The only two downlsides are that the keys are flimsy and every time an app uses data the phone gives the "do you want to allow this app to connect?" message.  This really sucks for using google maps where it connects every 2 seconds.Also, there are tons of awesome games for the phone.  For instance the Digital Chocolate games looks awesome.  You can download a free ad-supported version of the game at
