I am not too impressed with this phone! The response of the keys is not as good as other makes (I think this is a common problem with many Sony Ericssons, in my experience).
Also if you press keys too quickly it sometimes freezes.
On a plus, the screen is large and the features are good. (read more)

Had to send my first Z600 back as it kept switching itself off. This one has started to do it as well. The reception is not good and you have to have the thing in your underpants to feel the vibrate. will not bother to get another. (read more)

The Sony Ericsson Z600 is a great phone with lots of what I need (and use) everyday.......other than reception! It is a real shame that it is outperformed in this area by many other, less aesthetically pleasing, models. I have done the Nokia in one hand, SEZ600 in the other test, and had a similar poor result to other reviewers. I managed 1 block of reception on the SEZ600 to 5 blocks on the Nokia, but I still wouldn't buy the blockier Nokia!! (read more)

As a former Nokia user of 6 years I plumped for SE Z600 and so far I have no real regrets. Excellent price for these features. This model has a beautiful display, reception I have found to be excellent and sound quality very good.
My only real gripes are: 1) that after one week of trying (and having turned off the predictive text input) I still cannot prepare text messages anything like as fast as I could on my Nokia. 2) It is just a little to thick for a trouser pocket. (read more)

I bought the Sony Ericsson Z600 a couple of moonths ago. It's just so wonderful, very effective & practical phone. I love this mobile phone but it doesn't have everything I would have expected to find in it, meaning that the SE Z600, compared to other mobile phones in the same category, has got a bunch of catching up to deal with for better functionality, effectiveness & user friendliness.
Nevertheless I would strongly recommend the SE Z600 as being a best value/high quality mobile to... (read more)

Was time to update my mobile having had a Nokia 3310 for a few years. Originally I had intended to buy a Motorola V600 but upon looking at one the shop it looked a bit too plastic for my taste.
The main feature which pulled me towards buying the Z600 was the larger keypad, spaced out a lot better than most flip phones. Colour screen very easy to see in any light and navigation is easier than I thought it would be having been used to nokia for over 10 years. The user guide was not very good,... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson Z600 is a great little flip-phone with inter-changable colour cover. Very street-wise and cool looking. For the sophisticated business user. Infra-read capability. Good battery life. Eye-friendly menu screen. Texting can be a little long-winded, but you get use to it. A great little phone I would recommend. (read more)

I chose the Sony Ericcson Z600 mobile for its clear screen and really user friendly keys, which are nicely spaced. It is packed with features (although 8 weeks on I'm still trying to get it to successfully pick up emails) - and that is the first problem - set up could be much easier.
The main problem with this particular phone is its reception - I can't even get a reception at work where I have previously had no problems with Nokia or Samsung phones. I have become very bored with missing... (read more)

O2 - Because of the new law about phones and driving I needed to change my mobile, (and was due for an upgrade anyway!) and wanted bluetooth.
In the past all my mobiles have been Nokia, but they didn't have any decent phones that offered bluetooth, having read decent reviews of the Z600 and comparing it with the Motorola V600 I decided to go for the Z600. I'm glad I did.
So far it has been brilliant:- I can see the display in sunlight, full reception virtually anywhere, clear sound... (read more)

Ok, before I bought my Sony Ericsson Z600 I was a strictly Nokia sort of person, but then the screen on my 7210 started going on the blink it was time to buy a new phone..I went into the shop with every intention of getting a new Nokia, but as this was nearly 8 months ago they didn't do any clamshell designs, it ended up being a desicion between the Z600 and an Samsung E700, and after swapping phones with a friend and using the E700 for a week or two I know I made the right choice.

I've used my Z600 for 6 months now and have to say it's the best phone I've ever had (and I've had a few mobiles in my time). The software and features are an evolution of the T68i. The only minor gripe is the quality of the pictures from the camera however as a phone it's the biz - well happy. (read more)

Always being a Nokia user I was very impressed with the Sony Ericsson Z600. My husband also wishes he had it instead of his Nokia!
After several weeks of use I can still say that I love my phone. The ringtones are great; the ease of use is perfect. The 'click' as it opens and closes to me just feels more secure. The Bluetooth is handy and the only slight problem I have is that my husband's Nokia produces better pictures than my Sony. However I only wanted the camera facilities for spur... (read more)

Well the Sony Ericsson Z600 is a pretty cool mobile phone eg Poly Tones, screen Quality, graphics and so on. The phone is a pretty stylish phone, but not the the best.
What i have picked up on my 2 Sony Ericsson's z600's that Reception is shocking, i have compared it to other phones eg 3100, 3210, 8310 which when they have full reception your stuck with 2 bars which is pretty annoying and dodgy, Battery life is ok but not the best, nokia's last way longer evern when you use its features.

I had a motorola flip phone before this Sony Ericsson Z600 mobile phone, liked it but it had a mono screen and none of the toys like bluetooth etc.
When I saw the z600 over xmas (and having a free upgrade due with T-mobile which I haggled up) I thought that is definitely the phone for me. And I wasn't wrong.
Have had no problems with the signal strength as some have reported. I'm in London, I guess if you live in the boonies the signal isn't as strong.

I still can't make my mind up about this Sony Ericsson Z600 mobile phone. The main problem being it has all these capabilities and I have no idea how to use them.
The phone is a bit big (having had the T600 before this probably makes it feel an awful lot bigger!) but the keypad looks really slick and feels really good in your hand. The menu is really easy to work through.
I find that there is a bit of a delay when I'm writing a text and when the box comes down with other spelling options... (read more)

I used to be a Nokia boy, through and through. You couldn't get to me trust another manufacturer. Then I was introduced to Sony Ericsson's T68i. Nokia who? Anyway - I've just changed mobile phone providers and was offered a new handset. Clutching the T68i (slightly battered almost a year on) to my chest, I was determined to walk out with another. "What a shame Sony don't do a flip-phone." I exclaimed. A Sony Ericsson Z600 was presented before me by the sales assistant. Ok, it was a... (read more)

When I first got this Sony Ericsson Z600 mobile phone I didnt like the way it looked (bulky and bizarre), and i also didnt like the way the Flip felt (clicking into place when you open it), however i have now gotten used to these things, and they certainly dont detract from the overall quality of the phone.
Yes it looks a bit bulkier and stranger than other phones, but it is still stylish in my opinion, and sets you apart from the crowd.
The bad points are: Signal strength isnt the best,... (read more)

I could go rambling on about the features on this Sony Ericsson Z600 mobile phone but reading the other reviews on the site, it has all been said already. Top marks Sony! Great piece of kit, but I wouldn't like to live with it. It looks like it was designed by a co-operative working from two different sets of drawings. The external LCD display is pityful and a trip to Specsavers is definately needed if you want to see who's calling you. But the worst thing about the Z600 is the two halves... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson Z600 software is intuitive and easy to use. Has all the options a mobile phone should have, e.g. infrared, bluetooth, games, calendar, phone book etc etc. Looks very stylish, can be enhanced with extra covers but the two covers that come with the phone make it look awesome, specially the blue one. Only bad point is it doesn't have an active flip (or I haven't found it yet) otherwise, this phone kills all the Nokias on the market. Previously I only used Nokias but now I'm... (read more)

Having suffered the Panasonic GD87 (check out my heated review!) for a whole 11 months...a long time in my terms...I packed in the whole Orange contract and ported my number to Vodafone, resulting in me getting a shiny new Z600 whilst they were still as rare as hens teeth.

The Sony Ericsson Z600 is the first mobile phone I have ever bought myself. I had been using my Dad's contract hand-me-downs and was using an old Nokia 3330. As I was buying the phone myself I needed to make sure it was the right phone, especially as I was buying SIM Free, in order to stay on my tariff, operator and number. I definately made the right choice with the Z600.
Anyway, enough of the history. The basic overview of the Z600 is that it is the famous SonyEricsson T610, but in a... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson Z600 is without doubt, a very nice phone but it is not perfect.
The organiser is very comprehensive and reasonably easy to use, once you have found where the various features are in the menu system, and the contact management makes keeping track of people's phone numbers and email addresses a doddle. The clear, bright screen is good enough to view a lot of ordinary HTML web pages (as well as WAP ones), as long as they are not too heavy on the graphics. I am also looking... (read more)
