The Good Good camera; great music player; funky design.

The Bad No standard headphone adaptor.

The Bottom Line The Sony Ericsson K770i Cyber-shot might not excel in any particular area, but the combination of its slick design, impressive camera and excellent music player make it a great all-round package

8.3 Overall

The Sony Ericsson K770i Cyber-shot might be branded as a Cyber-shot camera phone, but there's more to this handset than just its ability to take pretty pictures -- it also has a great music player and a whole load of other neat features.

It's available for free on 3 and some contracts or for around £200 as a pay as you go or SIM-free phone.

Strengths
Our K770i was supplied by 3 so it came in the striking purple colour scheme which is exclusive to that network, but it has to be said that purple or not, this is a great looking handset. The metallic strip keypad looks the business and the phone feels beautifully proportioned in your hand.

As this is a Cyber-shot phone, you'd expect the camera to be better than the usual mobile phone fare. Thankfully, it doesn't disappoint. You can activate the 3.2-megapixel snapper by either sliding open the lens cover on the rear of the phone or by pressing the shutter button on the right hand edge of the phone.
