Sony Ericsson Zylo

19 April 2014
  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson Zylo looks good but feels slightly dated, even compared to other cheap phones, and the lack of a standard headphone jack is unforgivable for a music phone.
  • Cons: No standard headphone jack or USB port; lacks Wi-Fi and GPS; fiddly Web browser; PlayNow music store is pricey.

Sony Zylo Review: In Depth

28 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Zylo does well at being a basic slider phone that’s comfortable and easy to use, complete with a solid music player. Unfortunately the Zylo’s music playing capabilities are spoiled by the lack of a 3.5mm headphone slot, and the handset’s functionality is limited by awkward menu layouts and poor web browsing capabilities.

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

Bright Hub
8 December 2010
  • Excerpt: 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...

Review of Sony Ericsson W20i Zylo

Mobile Review
20 October 2010
  • 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. At the same time the absence of WiFi is a serious drawback. At the price of €140 the model looks a bit overpriced, but Nokia X3-00 has a similar price tag.

  • Conclusion: The Zylo is yet another addition to the Walkman range and although it falls a fair distance short of perfect Sony Ericsson are more than likely to continue is this same direction as long as they have the success. I see the Zylo as another ‘easy’ option for Sony, for once I would like to see them break away from these safe devices and really compete. Styling wise, functionality wise. What I am basically asking for is a decent Sony Ericsson Walkman touch screen device.

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

27 August 2010
  • Summary: Sony Ericsson Zylo is a mobile phone designed more specifically for music lovers than those web-centric denizens. It has music entertainment features which include Walkman player to create a personalized playlist, Shake Control for changing the song, and TrackID which is a technology that tells the title of the song and its artist and album by simply recording just a few seconds of the song.
  • Cons: Good media functions, Poor camera

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

26 August 2010
  • Summary: A good phone, and one that performs well enough for us to recommend it. A few basic flaws like the lack of a 3.5mm jack that is shocking for a Walkman phone and the lack of both flash and autofocus on the camera detract a bit from its charm.
  • Pros: Attractive looking, Good music playback quality, Great number keypad
  • Cons: Slow, archaic browser, No 3.5mm jack, No autofocus and flash on camera

Sony Ericsson Zylo review: Walkman rewind

GSM Arena
30 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Traditional sliders are a dying breed so having one of them for a few days made for a refreshing change. And a Walkman at that – someone at Sony Ericsson must have been feeling nostalgic. Well, let’s face it, the Sony Ericsson Zylo can’t do all that much. But if this phone is to sell – which we think it will – it won’t be for the tech inside. The Zylo looks nice, feels great in the hand and has decent equipment for a mobile phone that costs about a hundred euro.
  • Pros: Large 2.6" 16M-color TFT screen, 240 x 320 pixels, scratch-resistant surface, Quad-band GSM support, Dual-band 3G with 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA, 3 megapixel fixed-focus camera; VGA@24fps video recording, FM radio with RDS, Stereo Bluetooth 2.1, microSD card slot, 260 MB internal memory, Environment-friendly package, Social networking integration, widget-enhanced interface, NetFront v3.5 web browser with full Flash support, Very good audio output quality, Acceleromet...
  • Cons: No 3.5mm audio jack, No standard USB port, No bundled data cable or memory card, No camera lens cover, No document viewer

Sony Ericsson Zylo

Get Frank
19 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The brand Walkman for me conjures up visions of the old brick-sized tapedeck from the early 80s. Oh how I desperately wanted one, but my parents bought me a TEAC brand instead – sure it did exactly the same things – but I could never call it a ‘Walkman’. I knew that despite ‘Walkman’ becoming a generic term for almost any personal cassette player at the time, in much the same way as many MP3 players get grouped in with the brand iPod these days, a Walkman was a Walkman –...

Sony Ericsson Zylo Review

What Mobile
18 February 2011
  • Summary: As a cheap and cheerful music device the Zylo has a lot of plus points. First and foremost is an excellent implementation of Sony Ericsson’s renowned Walkman software, with support for lots of audio (and video) formats. Navigation is hampered severely by the buttons around the central circular controller – they’re way too small and cramped together. Also the device itself feels plasticky and toylike.
