Review: Sony Ericsson's Sleek K770 Cyber-shot Cameraphone
5 February 2008
Excerpt: While not at the top end of Sony Ericsson's Cyber-shot cameraphone lineup, the K770 still offers all of the great camera features that one would expect, like an auto-focus, 3.2MP camera. We give the K770 a complete workout in our in-depth review.
Summary: Despite its 72-chord polyphony, the K770i is no better than other Sony Ericsson branded phones in terms of audio performance. The loudspeaker is average volume-wise and has a great deal of bass in its sounding, so the call alert is easily heard even on a busy street. The silent alert is of moderate power or even slightly higher than that, but even this fact isn’t an excuse for the situations when it proves too weak to be felt.
Summary: The K770i is another excellent 3G phone from Sony Ericsson. Its camera isn't outstanding, but the design, look and feel of this handset combined with a slick user interface and a decent features list makes this an excellent phone on the whole.
Pros: Design, look and feel; controls; 3.2-megapixel camera; A2DP Bluetooth; user interface; included 256MB M2 card
Cons: Auto focus is a little slow, flash isn't strong enough for night-time photography, lens cover accidentally slides open on occasions
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson's latest midrange offering is sleek-looking bar-shape handset that fits easily in the pocket thanks to its rounded edges and slim dimensions (just 14mm thick). It's flush all over, with no protrusions, including the keypad, whose buttons sit just slightly proud, though they're tactile enough to keep you on track.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson K770i Cyber-shot might not excel in any particular area, but the combination of its slick design, impressive camera and excellent music player make it a great all-round package
Pros: Good camera, Great music player, Funky design
