Sony Live with Walkman Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is a surprisingly good device. If you can look past the Walkman branding of old and accept this for the long lost budget Xperia device that it is, you’ll find a good all round package. Pricing, of course, is key. Having a quick look around, the unlocked model ranges from between £165 to £200, while Three offer the phone on PAYG for £129.99 (with a minimum of £10 top-up).
Pros: 1Ghz processor keeps everything smooth, UI modifications are pleasant and unobtrusive, Affordable
Excerpt: If you are one of the Sony Ericsson faithful out there you probably know that the other day the company unveiled a new Android smartphone, the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman , which is the first global Walkman handset for Android.
Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman: Does It Uphold Reputation?

Summary: Overall opinion: The limited music file capability prevents top marks for the SE Live with Walkman, but the battery life moderates ranking away from a mid-zone level. On this one, we’d have to give it a 7 out of 10: It could be better with top-flight music file capability, but user enjoyment times regain ground.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is priced at Rs.14,400. It directly competes with a few older models in that price range – the Galaxy Ace, the HTC ChaCha (which is a couple of grands cheaper) and the Nokia 603 (with Symbian Belle). From the current generation, however, there are extremely limited options from the more popular brands. The Live with Walkman fared well in all our sections.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman costs roughly $240 contract-free, which is a steal considering that you get a decent mid-range Android smartphone, at least on paper. The device looks cool, and its 1GHz processor is snappy enough for the needs of the average user. However, you still get what you pay for, so you have to settle down with a sub-par display.
Pros: Its interface is optimized for its small display, Cheap Android smartphone with decent user experience, Responsive camera
Cons: Suffers from random reboots, Uncomfortable shutter key, Mediocre display

Summary: Looks: Walkman in White The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman represents Sony Ericsson’s latest attempt to blend its legendary Walkman brand name with Android smartphones, and we have to admit that as far as looks go, it stands out from the crowd. Alas, it is for the wrong reasons – the phone is so unusually thick that when we first saw it we thought it was a slider.
Excerpt: We’ve had a number of headphones sent our way to review recently. These are the Sony Ericsson LiveSound hi-fi headphones and they sell for around £49.99. They don’t work with all phones or MP3 players, these are designed to work with Sony Ericsson Xperia handsets like the Xperia neo, Xperia PLAY and Xperia pro. We tried it on another non-compatible phone and there’s pretty much no sound.
