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.
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.
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: Hats off to Sony Ericsson for trying to go green with the Sony Ericsson Naite. Why launch a phone to celebrate that though, then strip out the decent specs? Keep up the eco work guys, but get back to making Cyber-shots, please.
Pros: The Sony Ericsson Naite is a nice, slim size and the 3G connection for faster web browsing and YouTube guzzling is always welcome. Anyone who's used a Sony Ericsson phone before will be right at home here thanks to the same old software and menu layout, and the Green Calculator for totting up CO2 emissions is an eye opener for anyone interested in cutting back to save the planet.
Cons: So, the Sony Ericsson Naite is an eco-friendly phone. That's cool. Why does that mean we have to have a rubbish, two-megapixel camera in there too though? It's not like saving the world and decent cameras are mutually exclusive. There's no 3.5mm audio either, a second smack in the chops. We're also hating the looks: as well as a keypad wobblier than a plate of jelly on stilts, the back case is next to impossible to prise off. And the Ecomate application that comes pre...
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.
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.
