Comparative review of music phones Samsung F300 and Sony Ericsson W880i
24 April 2007
Summary: Let’s take and look at the final table and crown the winner.
SonyEricsson W880i wins by a small margin here, though it could have even more solid lead, if only I had mentioned Internet and mailing (where the F300 doesn’t do great and lacks mailing features at all), and some other amenities. On the other hand, the latter has auto number-filling feature adopted from Windows Mobile smartphones.
Summary: Despite the polyphony having 40 chords in the W880, the handset does not provide a breakthrough in sounding of mp3 tunes compared to other Sony Ericsson branded phones. The speaker is average volume-wise and sounds pretty good, however its sonic merits fall flat while on the street – in fact the volume level offered by the W880 usually proves to be below required, but it is still more than we have come to expect from such minimalist design.
Excerpt: It feels like Sony Ericsson has been churning out Walkmans at a terrific rate recently, in all shapes, sizes and formats - sliders, candybars, cheap 'n' cheerful music players and fancy touchscreen smartphones. And if something's not broke, why fix it?
