Sony Ericsson Zylo Review
18 May 2011
Summary: Often cell phone buyers are not consciously aware of the fact that Ericsson phones bare the name Sony at the front and that it means something. Sony is known as a great brand name in electronics and their cell phones are great too. Here is a Sony Ericsson Zylo review.
Summary: The model is devoid of surprises. The vibro is powerful enough and ringtones are really loud. Connection quality is decent, but outdoors you have to open the phone as otherwise the wind will blow into the microphone.
There is no GPS in the phone, but Google Maps make it an excessive accessory.

Cons: Social networking widgets are slow to navigate, apps at PlayNow Arena are comparatively very expensive
Conclusion: There is little to surprise with the Sony Ericsson Zylo. There is also little to set this handset aside from similar models from previous years, from the design to the operating system. The biggest let down is the music performance seeing as this is a Walkman branded device.
Pros: XMB, FLAC support, HSDPA, reasonable video quality, nice keyboard
Cons: No 3.5mm jack, poor bundled headphones, no Wi-Fi, operating system a little tired and convoluted
