Sony Ericsson Vivaz U5

4 October 2010
  • Excerpt: The stylish new Vivaz was only recently launched here in India. It’s designed to offer mobile camera buffs a value for their money, at least that’s what Sony Ericsson says. The Vivaz has been a much awaited handset but before you go around whipping out your wallet, here’s a closer look at the handset. It should help you make up your mind if this is the right high end camera phone for you.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz by 3G.co.uk

  • Excerpt: The curvy and slender is available in four colours and has a 3.2-inch touch-screen, making it a very stylish affair. The resistive touch-screen is pretty good, but the on-screen keyboard is slow and the user interface frustrating once you get past the top-level icons.

The sleek, curved Vivaz smartphone represents a fresh look and feel for Sony Ericsson, but the drab Symbian OS is a big let down

  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a well designed smartphone with plenty of features, but it's ultimately let down by the drab and outdated Symbian operating system.
  • Pros: Stylish design, light, 720p HD video recording with continuous autofocus, home screen standby panels, 3.5mm headphone jack, Facebook and YouTube apps included
  • Cons: Drab and outdated Symbian OS, inconsistent UI that isn't particularly fast or smooth, resistive touch screen, awkward placement of headphone jack

Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz review

25 May 2010
  • Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a light and compact smartphone that packs in a 3.2in touchscreen and an 8.1-megapixel camera that can capture 720p video. Compared to other touchscreen smartphones, it's amazingly small and light. It doesn’t resort to the usual boxy design, either, instead being stylishly tapered at both ends.

  • 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. It does suffer in low light, however, and the LED flash won't help you out too much, so don’t expect to get good results in a gloomy pub.
  • 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

  • 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?

Sony Ericsson Vivaz

Airgamer
16 November 2010
  • Summary: Nach dem Sony Ericsson in den letzten Monaten starke Umsatzeinbußen hinnehmen musste, setzt das Unternehmen nun verstärkt auf Touchscreen-Geräte. Das Modell Vivaz macht deutlich, dass sie dabei ihre bekannte Stärke nicht außer Acht lassen: cooles Design. Erhältlich in vier frischen Farben fällt das Vivaz zudem durch die schnittige, leicht-futuristisch wirkende Ellipsen-Silhouette positiv auf. Da kein Metall verbaut wurde, ist das Smartphone zudem angenehm leicht.
  • Pros: Sehr gute Java-Performance, Hochwertiger Camcorder, 8 GB microSD Speicherkarte im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: Durchschnittliche Kamera, Gedrosseltes Arbeitstempo
