BOB.'s review of Sony Ericsson P800

Sony Ericsson P800

“I have had a lot of mobiles but never have I come...”

Written on: 22/08/2003 by BOB. (1 review written)

Good Points
The Sony Ericsson P800 has Mp3, video playback, camera, java games, bluetooth, memory stick

Bad Points
It's a bit big & the flip and style are cheap and flimsy. But the good points outweigh this tenfold!

General Comments
I have had a lot of mobiles but never have I come across something so unbelievably fantastic! It's clean lines and bright colouring make it one of the most desirable mobiles on the market today. The large 4096 colour touch display is just as good if not better than that of any 65k colour phones. The P800 takes personalising your mobile to another level with the ability to create your own screensavers, wallpapers and colour theme. Software is available to turn the already brilliant digital camera into a camcorder. It has a memory stick port, which was brought to the collaberation by Sony, and gives you access to an unlimited amount of memory. You can view microsoft documents (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) on the P800 making it more like a pc than a phone! There is no end to the possibilities with this phone!

The P800 boasts most features including an MP3/Movie player, camera, synchronisation with PIM such as MS Outlook and looks like it may just pull it off. A phone the size of a standard house brick must be packed with technology I thought. Well, the phone does do what it says on the box and for that I cannot criticise Sony. However, I suspect there will be two distinctive camps in the P800 debate - those that have previously owned such as a Comapq IPAQ and those that have only used mobile phones. The IPAQ users will immediately fall out with the awful screen and feel of the 800. It is too small to actually view documents on and in truth offers no discernable advantage over the Sony T610. The 800 looks promising when first switched on but quickly reveals it's true colours as fat phone without the great personality which would rescue you from the jibes of friends and colleagues.
<br>
<br>If you have owned a decent PDA such as the 400mhz IPAQ don't go near the P800 - even with a nine foot blue tooth connection. It will dissapoint I guarantee - If you have only ever used a mobile phone and can live with the comical design then you will probably be very impressed. It is - as stated previously on this site - a poor attempt at a PDA. Get yourself a T610 - very small, sexy looking and capable phone happy to bluetooth to with Outlook/Lotus.
