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

  • 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  • Cons: Drab and outdated Symbian OS, inconsistent UI that isn't particularly fast or smooth, resistive touch screen, awkward placement of headphone jack

  • 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.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz

  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson Vivaz works surprisingly well as a rough and ready 720p camcorder, but its unresponsive touchscreen and fiddly user interface mean it's an annoying phone to use for day-to-day tasks
  • Pros: Impressive video quality; bright touchscreen.
  • Cons: Fiddly controls and user interface; below-par build quality.

Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz review

Pocket Lint
4 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Vivaz carries the moniker U5i, telling us that it comes from the same range as the Satio that we reviewed recently. It loses much of the bulk, however, bringing with it curvaceous "human design". But does this out-perform its bigger brother?
  • 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

CNET
23 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Face aux Google Phones , aux professionnels Blackberry ou au fashion iPhone 3GS , Sony Ericsson cherche à tirer son épingle du jeu avec des produits enrichissant l’expérience multimédia. Depuis que le constructeur nippon suédois avait abandonné ses parts dans le consortium Symbian, on ne donnait pas cher de la plateforme, détenue depuis à 100% par Nokia.
  • Pros: Résolution du capteur élevée, qualité des photos et vidéos, vidéos HD, publication sur les réseaux sociaux, possibilités multimédias sans fil.
  • Cons: Dalle résistive, ergonomie vieillotte, bouton d'extinction/mode affleurant au sommet.
