  • Excerpt: "...cannot go wrong with the Sony Z5, and once you get used to it, you will never want to retire it, as it is also great for a discrete pocket phone for when you are going out, as it is light to boot. ****************************************************** Please note, the above is an opinion based on my interaction with the product. Technical and historical statistical data are best left up to the experts and further information on these facts should ...
  • Pros: Small but with ample size buttons and display

  • Excerpt: "I got my Sony CMD Z5 before Christmas 2000 and I'm still as happy with it today as I've ever been. If I had £1 for every time I've received a compliment about my phone I could probably buy a first class air ticket to Sydney. It's best feature is the jog-dial which is brilliant for all matter of things from text messaging with one hand to going on line. The features such as voice memo and schedule are so useful that I don't even bother with ...
  • Pros: small and very stylish

  • Excerpt: "...have. It’s a pity that Sony is not able to support its clients. I had to find software from a German site. The software was about organising the phonebook from the PC using cable. Another very sophisticated feature is the built-in-answering machine wich it enable you to hear your messages, anytime without paying a single penny to the providers. Unfortunately it does not have infrared, which again is a disadvantage. But we cannot have it all..can ...
  • Pros: easy to navigate,small,light,wap,built - in - answering machine
  • Cons: send no logos,no infrared,some software,expensive battery

The Best comes in Small Packages

30 September 2001
  • Excerpt: "...size, and the reputation of Sony as a quality manufacturer of electronic goods. Initially, the phone took some getting used to, as the explanation for the use of the jog dial was somewhat insufficient. The on-screen reminders of where to find different features was also confusing, as the animation for pressing the jog dial back was almost indistinguishable from the instruction to simply press the jog dial in. With that minor problem rectified, ...
  • Pros: Sexy looking, affordable on contract, easy to use
  • Cons: Poor ringtones, easy to lose !

EXCELLENT Z5

zef, Ciao
18 September 2001
  • Excerpt: "The Sony CMD Z5 is an excellent effort from Sony. Its chrome case and lightweight feel make it a real fashion accessory but its qualities don’t end there. The most important feature has to be the mobile Internet access and because it has a browser, (Microsoft Mobile Explorer) it can view the “proper” Internet or http sites like hotmail. It can be used to take memos as well and has an answer phone and a wonderful jog dial to scroll ...

Small, sleek and sexy

nwilson, Ciao
7 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "...decided to go for the Sony CMD-Z5. I was initially attracted to it’s sleek looks – it has an attractive design and is a bit different from the run of the mill Nokia phones available. It has a scratch-resistant finish, and the flip lid prevents any damage to the screen. This lid can be kept closed whilst still allowing 2 lines of text to be displayed. It is also small in size – no bigger than a credit card. This suited me ...
  • Pros: If size matters, this is the one .
  • Cons: The jog wheel will not suit left - handers !

Why does everyone love this phone, I wonder

ponty, Ciao
2 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "...the time of writing, the Sony Z5 is listed as being the top rated mobile phone here at Ciao. I've recently sent mine back, very disappointed, wondering how anyone can bear to use it. Let me explain. For the first half an hour or so of usage, I was thinking 'this is the best mobile phone ever made!', I was taken in by the size of the thing, the lovely silver coating, the beautiful greyscale screen, and the intuitive navigation that the advanced ...
  • Pros: Tiny, beautiful
  • Cons: Everything else
