Summary: This a realtivly new phone and has an important feature to its name 'Sony'. So you already know that it is going to be good quality. You don't want a Nokia as everyone has them and you feel like a sheep with one. If you want something different pick this phone. What does this phone do? Looks- Although i think it is a big long it is really thin and so light that it can't feel it in my pocket and i don't feel weighed down by a nokia. It also has an amazing feature a wheel.
Summary: I`ve had the Sony CMD-Z5 for just about a year now and have a fairly mixed opinion of it. The phone certainly looks the part, I personally think it is one of the nicest looking phones on the market currently, and it was one of the reasons that I purchased this phone. SIZE: The phone is also an excellent size (just about credit card size) which enables you to carry it without the inconvenience of carring a spare bag for it, like some other handsets.
Excerpt: "The Sony CMD-Z5 (the Z5) is undoubtedly a great looking, sexy phone. Sony have definitely come up trumps in the design department and it's lighter than the Nokia 8850 too by almost 10g! I bought it at the beginning of the year to replace my Nokia 8810. I have since returned to Nokia and upgraded to their 8850. Why? In a word, functionality. There is a key compatibility issue with vodafone at least - it can't seem to hear the tones if you try to ...
Pros: Good looking, stylish talking point, big screen, World clock with two time zones, good battery life, two great games
Summary: Ok I would agree that the phone looks nice,and it has loads of features but after just two weeks of having it I going to use my old 8210, the problem is if your a heavy user then it becomes a pain, with a nokia phone its just a couple of clicks away to the number you want to dial, but this with phone you have to go through several more button presses to get to the same place, it also has a slight delay on the button responses that really annoy me.
Excerpt: "...out of date, becuase its sony and not nokia its re sale value will be bad, the phone its self is nothing exciting and nothing really to shout about, its not that easy to use, has no fun games and has not go the same style as a nokia 8210 or an Erricson T28... Before buying this phone you should look at the nokia and erricson range as they have a good basis for phone technology. You should then find out the out put of radiation, as you dont want to ...
Sony CMD-Z5: Nifty little phone, lacks some basics that can annoy
23 January 2001
Summary: The Z5 is a smart looking, handy phone. Much better than most of the other bulky phones currently available. Ther are however some annoying little quirks that can start to bug after a short while. Although the jog dial is a very good function, I am surprised that the default location it opens up on is 'Message' and not 'Phonebook' as this is one that I definately, and assume most people would use the most of all features available.
Pros: small, sassy
Cons: not quite 'one hand friendly', acquired taste
Summary: Updated 24/01/01: I have now had this phone about 4-5 months, so i thought I'd update my opinion. This is the second WAP phone I have owned, the previous one being a Nokia 7110, which I have had serious issues with from the day I bought it. I decided to take the plunge with the Z5 because I had read so many good things about it I felt this was the phone to have.
Pros: Small and stylish, lots of features,.
Cons: Small screen, weak WAP facilities, useless E-mail client, and limited SMS functions.
Summary: Zuerstmal: Anfangs war ich absolut begeistert vom Z5. Es sieht klasse aus, ist klein und kompakt, aber trotzdem geschützt durch die Klappe. Die Menüführung erlaubt einem auch ein schnelles zugreifen auf die Unterpunkte, alles fabelhaft, wenn man sich erst mal vom Nokia-Standard geistig getrennt hat. Was wirklich nervt- ich weiss nicht wem es noch so geht- ist die Einstellung der Rufumleitungen.
Excerpt: ...italiano, auricolare vivavoce. • Anno: 2000. Aspetto La qualità Sony non si smentisce mai. Questo concentrato di alta tecnologia e di dimensioni e peso assai ridotti portano questo cellulare ad essere un nuovo mito. Ottimo design e facilità d’uso le parole d’ordine. Funzionamento e Software Questo modello è piccolo e maneggevole, per non parlare del peso (circa 82 gr.), benchè abbia un ampio display ed una tastiera ergonomica. Ma ciò ...
Summary: Einen Handybericht schreiben können ja viele. Aber wer kann schon auf eine richtig lange Testphase zurückblicken, in der er ein und dasselbe Handy genutzt hat? Nachdem ich mein kleines Sony-Handy nun seit mehr als zwei Jahren benutze, sehe ich mich in der Lage, das Gerät umfassend zu beurteilen. Gerade nach zwei Jahren zeigt sich, dass das CMD-Z5 teilweise als Blender gesehen werden muss.
Pros: das Handy ist nach wie vor ein Design - Klassiker
