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
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: Although it bears the once-prestigious Walkman name, the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman isn't actually that impressive as a music player. However, for the price it offers a fantastic amount of value, leaving similarly-priced Android budget devices in the shade.
Cons: Bundled 2GB card is too small; Screen could be bigger; Not a great music player.
Excerpt: The Live offers the usual features such as Wi-Fi and GPS along with the Live with Walkman interface The handset is good looking and sits nicely in the hand You’ll be charging every night, even though its battery life is better than many smarties With a 1GHz chip under the hood, this phone is smooth and speedy in operation The touch display proves responsive, call quality and signal is good.
Conclusion: Il Sony Ericsson Live con Walkman è un interessante smartphone basato su Android e dedicato soprattutto a chi ama ascoltare musica in movimento, grazie ad alcune carine funzioni musicali di cui è provvisto. Notevole anche il settore fotografico, non tanto per la risoluzione del sensore quanto per le funzioni presenti, decisamente avanzate. Completa, poi, la connettività.
Pros: Display touchscreen ad alta risoluzione; Funzioni musicali avanzate; Android; Integrazione con Facebook; Serie Walkman; UMTS con tecnologia HSDPA; Funzioni fotografiche avanzate
