Sony Ericsson Vivaz U5

Tech2
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...

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

Good Gear Guide.au
7 September 2010
  • 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  • Cons: Drab and outdated Symbian OS, inconsistent UI that isn't particularly fast or smooth, resistive touch screen, awkward placement of headphone jack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 Vivaz Review by 3G.co.uk

12 March 2010
  • 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.

Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz

Pocket Lint
4 March 2010
  • 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

Sony Ericsson Vivaz

Airgamer
9 October 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.
  • 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?

  • Summary: Materialevalget skæmmer dog en anelse, da det består af tynd plastic og ikke giver en udpræget følelse af kvalitet. Fordelen er dog, at plasticen ikke vejer noget, så mobilen er utrolig let. Stort set hele fronten på Vivaz består af en 3,2 tommer stor trykfølsom skærm.
  • Pros: God størrelse og form, Godt kamera/video i HD
  • Cons: Ikke særlig brugervenlig, Dårlig trykfølsom skærm, Besværlig SIM-kort-slot

Sony Ericsson Vivaz: Virrig videomobil

M3
1 March 2010
  • Summary: Test Sony Ericsson fortsätter med taktiken att släppa en lur för varje funktion istället för att kombinera allt i en maskin. Vivaz är en miniversion av Satio med lägre kameraupplösning, men video i 720p.
  • Pros: Smidig form, Hyfsat snabb
  • Cons: Tillkrånglat gränssnitt, Bildkvaliteten är inte bra nog
