  • Conclusion: We have to admit the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness X5 leaves us with quite mixed feelings. On the one hand, the cell phone is spectacular to look at and its transparent display is definitely something we hope to see more often, plus most people will find the functionality of the device more than...
  • Pros: Transparent display, Spectacular appearance, Great in-call quality, Capable browser and email client, Premium services

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
12 December 2011
  • Summary: Big on looks, there isn’t a whole lot else going for Sony Ericsson’s Pureness – and that’s the way it likes it. The transparent nature of the device is aesthetically pleasing but unfortunately, this does hinder the usability of the device.
  • Pros: Unique design, great music player and bundled Bluetooth headphones, cheaper than other luxury handsets.
  • Cons: It?s sometimes difficult to see the display on the transparent screen, making texting a little difficult and web browsing very uncomfortable.

  • Summary: The transparent screen is an intriguing novelty, but doesn’t prevent the Pureness from being an overpriced and unexceptional phone

  • Conclusion: So what you have in the Pureness is something of a mixed bag. Pitched to a narrow premium sector of the market, it won't appeal to gadget fans or those who like the latest bit of kit.
  • Pros: Offers discount access to concierge service
  • Cons: Poor keyboard, screen limits the experience of using the phone, uncomfortable for calling, entry-level specification

Обзор Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness – телефон с прозрачным экраном

29 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Этот телефон (заметьте, не концепт, а полноценный телефон!) и вправду получился интересным, но совершенно непрактичным. И на 90% заслуга в этом – его инновационный экран, который не выдерживает никакой критики.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness: schick, aber unpraktisch

24 December 2009
  • Summary: Bei Sonys Ericssons Xperia Pureness ist der Name Programm. Nicht nur das Gehäuse des Handys ist puristisch. Auch die inneren Werte sind auf das absolut Wesentliche reduziert, nämlich Telefonieren und vielleicht noch das Verschicken der ein oder anderen SMS.
  • Pros: schickes, einzigartiges Design, lange Akkulaufzeit, gute Gesprächsqualität, einfacher SIM-Karten-Wechsel
  • Cons: wenig Features, schlecht lesbares Display, nutzloser Webbrowser, keine Kamera, teuer, keine Privatsphäre dank durchsichtigem Screen
