Sony Naite Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Naite is definitely not a smartphone, but it's no idiot-phone either; the clever multi-purpose inbox, media player and the eco-conscious side are all great. Unfortunately it wasn't fast enough for us - we felt frustration when opening a couple of applications like the camera, the web speeds were slowing us down and the text messaging lag was a real bugbear.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson’s Naite is the cheapest (so far) of their new environment-friendly range of handsets called GreenHeart. The J105 is all about the environment from the packaging to the materials used in the construction. Here’s a closer look at one of the county's limited eco friendly handsets. Form Factor To start off, the Naite is packaged in a small but neat box made of recycled material. All instructions are printed on the box and there's just one pamphlet inside.
Summary: The esoterically named Sony Ericsson Naite may classify as a feel-good eco-phone, but its packed feature and toolsets make it a good pick for socialites shopping in the midlevel range--daintier carbon footprints notwithstanding.
Pros: Sony Ericsson's Naite offers a clear, sharp display with smooth navigation and plenty of organizational and multimedia goodies under the hood. E-mail, an FM music player, and music, photo, and video-editing tools stand out.
Cons: A nonstandard headphone and charger jack, slightly cramped dial pad, and terrible speakerphone don't do the Naite any favors. Some of the best multimedia features like video calls don't work in North America. Associating a contact with a photo is less than intuitive, and you can't assign ringtones to contacts at all.
Conclusion: The Naite is comes from Sony Ericsson with good intentions. It would however appear that we are not yet at the stage when a mobile can be green in character without having to sacrifice performance or functionality. The Naite offers mediocre features in the form of its camera and music playback capabilities however they just feel lacking when compared to specialist devices.
Summary: Green concerns are only set to escalate, especially here in India, so it makes sense that handset manufacturers would get in on the action, especially when we tend to keep our phones for the length of a contract before discarding them on the scrap heap. LG has come up with the Pop and Samsung the Blue Earth, both of which offer the potential for solar charging.
