Slim, Simple, Sony

21 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "...to implement predictive text messaging Sony was well ahead of its time. The rotational controller is surely the most simple system that the cellular world has ever seen, as is the manner key. It's so easy to use that even when drunk, which lets face it is when most students on Just Talk use it, those hilarious prank calls and texts can be sent. So what it's big. It's light, slim and best of all cheap. I defy anyone to buy a better Pay As You Talk ...
  • Pros: Light Slim Simple Cheap
  • Cons: Big

Good Phone, but brick-like

greath, Ciao
2 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "This phone is an extension of the C1 handset, providing dual-band functionality, extensions to the user interface including the text input predictor T9, a clock and calculator, and a larger battery. The resulting increase in the battery size and additon of an antenae has increased the size of the handset but made it more "useful" as the C1 standby / talk time was limited. Performace is good with measured sensitivity down to -107dB and it also has ...
  • Pros: Standby time, T9, EFR
  • Cons: Size

Rixie, Ciao
24 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "An easy to use and aesthetically pleasing phone, I bought mine on Orange JustTalk for £25, but I've seen this phone on the same contract for £60 elsewhere! The main feature of this phone is the little wheel on the side, similar to a scroll wheel on a mouse, and allows one handed use of the phone, it also features a good range of ringer tones (both musical and conventional), vibrating alarm (which can be activated with one key). The phone is ...
  • Pros: Good quality, good battery .
  • Cons: availability of assecories

  • Excerpt: "...with it if possible. The Sony does, and I liked the design, which is relatively tall and narrow, not unlike a Mars bar to hold. Actually, it's better than that, as it is shaped to the hand and has a brilliant roller control that comes naturally under your thumb (as long as you hold it in your left hand!). This is the single best feature of the phone, which allows 90% of operation with just one control (I know the Nokia 7110's got one, too, but that's ...
  • Pros: Ease of use !
  • Cons: Designed for left hand use

Best buy

amir, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "The Sony CD5e is a very very good buy considering the price when you buy a just talk deal with orange. The phone costs £29.99 which includes a £5 just talk voucher valid for 30 days from when you register. The phone is very good with features like jog dial, which gives a 3D rotating menu which is quite nice compared to the boring same old menu style in other phones. It has a long talk time as well as 5 day standby time. The deal also comes with a ...
  • Pros: very good deal with the price and the features
  • Cons: bit heavy

Z5 - make sure you know what you're getting

ajordan15, Ciao
26 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "Before I begin I don't yet have a Z5, I have however been reserching and spent an hour in the Carphone Warhouse playing with one. First things first it is a fantastic looking piece of kit small, silver and sexy, with loads of great features. I'm upgrading from a Siemens S25 which has been a really great phone. What I thought about the phone in the shop was really small and light, nice screen, but I found the jog dial hard to use initially. The keys ...
  • Pros: sleek, sexy and functional
  • Cons: has problems, hard to get used to menu, wap and reception problems
