Sony Ericsson Z520a II

bedtimes, Ebay
5 March 2011
  • Summary: I HAVE PURCHASED A NUMBER OF THESE PHONES AND THIS IS MY SECOND REVIEW! The Features and ease of use of this phone are GREAT, but one little flaw creates the need to replace it every so often. There is a problem with the connecter to the screen that it wears out after awhile and then the screen goes blank.

Can't trust buyer.

  • Summary: I bought the NewPhone Sony Ericsson Z520i three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive phone. It has a 1M-pixel camera, video camera, and speakerphone. The NewPhone's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 4 hours.

  • Summary: Bought this phone about 4 months ago when my old phone died at the hands of my toddler. It is easy to use, simple, and has pretty good audio quality compared to other phones I've owned. I do not use the internet with my cell phones, so I cannot speak to any features related to that. I found only about 2-3 ringtones that it comes with agreeable. It has an awfully loud alert when the battery is dying that cannot be changed or muted.

  • Summary: The book that came with the phone gave you no photo of the phone so you have to feel your way through what the buttons are used for which made it more diffcult to use for a senior user. No regular buttons for send, on or off. We are still trying to find certain features. Would not buy as a gift or this phone brand name.

Nice features but...

  • Summary: This phone has a great set of features, speaker, camera (quality is not the greatest though), video clips, bluetooth, custom rings possible for every phonebook entry, email, nice size, good keypad quality. BUT.... it also has a high failure rate, so much so that it was taken off the market. The first set of them had a serious software problem that caused the phone to hangup for no reason. Also, the sound would shutoff similarly, for no reason.

Wasn't Good For Me

aimeebb69, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this phone for my son for his birthday in 09/06 it is now 01/07. Cingular is a service provider, and we have had nothing but trouble with this phone and that was shortly after getting it. It just does all kinds of crazy things like shuts off for now reason, looses sound, and to get the things to come back you have to turn the phone off. Also he doesn't keep a good signal on this phone at all.
