  • Summary: If media’s your thing, the Vivaz has a lot to offer. Anything else, though, and you’re out of luck.
  • Pros: The HD video camera has continuous focus and good results, the eight-megapixel camera works well even in low light and there’s a cunningly positioned 3.5mm audio port.
  • Cons: The keyboard is slow, the accelerometer clunky and the browser isn’t up to much either.

  • Conclusion: There is no doubt that the Sony Ericsson Vivaz offers a lot. It punches well above its weight when it comes to video and photos, offering one of the best camera phones we've seen to date.
  • Pros: 720p video capture, camera performance, the Fast Port connector is gone
  • Cons: Interface hampers everything, Twitter application really lacks features, can't change music volume whilst keys locked

  • Pros: Sehr gute Java-Performance, Hochwertiger Camcorder, 8 GB microSD Speicherkarte im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: Durchschnittliche Kamera, Gedrosseltes Arbeitstempo

  • Conclusion: Sony Ericssons nya smartphone är förmodligen företagets snyggaste hittills. Vivaz vill vara förstahandsvalet för alla som älskar att fånga livet i kortare videosekvenser. Frågan är vad alla andra kommer att tycka?
