Excerpt: Primarily a media phone, the W705 is for those that don't ask too much in terms of the camera or email functionality. It'll impress people, thanks to its shiny good looks. Just don't offer to show them the iPlayer on it. What we like There is one thing that will immediately make you gasp when you get this phone out of the box. The screen clarity? The range of buttons? No. The brave decision to go with both silver and gold for the front of the phone. But do you know what?
Excerpt: As usual Sony Ericsson is out with another smashing looking handset in the W705 Walkman Series handset. But all that glitters is not gold, at least not necessarily. So without further ado, here’s the W705 and my opinion on the same. Form Factor It’s a well crafted handset, that’s the first thing I thought when I laid eyes on it. The 2.4-inch display sports a 240 x 320 pixel resolution with 256k colors. It’s bright and clear enough to view in all lighting conditions.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson W705 is one hot piece musical equipment but the with the added bonus of high speed broadband internet access as well as many many more amazing features and functions to match. We believe this stylish and very funky mobile phone will be very hard to put down and that is the only problem we have about this handset. It will keep any user amused, occupied and certainly entertained endlessly with which ever feature is chosen to be used.

Sony Ericsson W705: Musik-Handy mit 3,2-Megapixel-Kamera
29 July 2009
Summary: Das Walkman-Telefon W705 von Sony Ericsson kommt bei der Musikwiedergabe schon sehr nahe an reine MP3-Player heran. Umso schlimmer, dass es eine proprietäre Kopfhörerbuchse gibt. Immerhin stimmt die Ausstattung mit WLAN und 3,2-Megapixel-Kamera. Wir haben das Handy ausführlich getestet.
Pros: schickes Design, tolle Klangqualität, WLAN- und HSPA, Podcast-Unterstützung, UKW-Radio
Cons: proprietäre Kopfhörerbuchse, winzige Walkman-Taste, komplizierte Software zur Musikübertragung
