“I am not too impressed with this phone! The response...”

Written on: 17/07/2005 by diidi (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2004 by Father Ted (3 reviews written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 07/10/2004 by Sovok (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2004 by Abdoul Sissoko (1 review written)

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 enjoy… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/09/2004 by vik3062 (4 reviews written)

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, no… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2004 by paradise (27 reviews written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2004 by RodatAlston (10 reviews written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 11/09/2004 by installspark (5 reviews written)

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 quality… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2004 by jcturner (2 reviews written)

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.
Ok so this… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2004 by Mazb (1 review written)

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 of… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2004 by golala4 (1 review written)

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.

Written on: 07/04/2004 by toady (1 review written)

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.

The phone's design is stunning in my… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2004 by SilasAmy (1 review written)

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 I… Read Full Review

You're having trouble seeing words when the spelling option box comes down? I did too and the good news is that you can de-select this option. When in sms writing mode, select MORE. From there, select WORD SUGGESTIONS. You have two options: DISPLAY AS LIST (which is what you're getting) and DON'T DISPLAY. Select the latter and you're sorted. You can then use your down arrow key to go through the word options and actually see the word changing.

Written on: 15/03/2004 by cityjourno (1 review written)

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 bit… Read Full Review

I bought this Sony Ericsson Z600 mobile phone and I have to say the reception pick up was dire,if i compared the Nokia 6100 in one hand and the Z600 in the other I would have 5 signal bars on the Nokia and 1-2 on the Z600.The keypad and the menus lockup 4 times in 2 weeks twice when texting and twice when accessing the menus,when this happened you could not even switch the phone off as none of the keys would work,so I had to take the battery off the phone then put it back on,to then be greeted… Read Full Review
