Sony Ericsson W760

The Good The Sony Ericsson W760i has an attractive, easy-to-use design with a well-stocked, music-friendly feature set. It also offers broad world phone support, an accelerometer, and reliable performance.

The Bad The Sony Ericsson W760i's menus are the slightest bit sluggish, and some of its navigation controls were crowded. Also, it lacks a camera flash, and we're concerned about the long-term durability of its keypad buttons.

The Bottom Line The Sony Ericsson W760i is the best Sony Ericsson Walkman phone we've seen, by far. It corrects one of Sony Ericsson's usual design pitfalls while offering a generous feature set and satisfying performance. We can suggest a few tweaks that should make it a winner.

Sony Ericsson W760

Aug 2008

Editors' note: The Sony Ericsson W760i is unlocked and AT&T offers the Sony Ericsson W760a. Features are similar between the two devices, but the W760a adds support for AT&T's music and video applications.

Almost three years ago we reviewed our first Sony Ericsson Walkman phone, the W600i. Since then, we've seen quite a few models pass through our hands. For the most part we've approved of the Walkman series, even if there was the occasional dud. Designs are typically easy to use, features are plentiful, and performance is satisfactory. Fortunately, the latest Walkman handset, the W760i, didn't let us down in the slightest. It first captured our eye at CES 2008 where it was a finalist in the cell phones category for CNET's Best of CES. At the time, we admired its slick design and its laden feature set, which includes a motion sensor, an accelerometer, and support for three UMTS/HSDPA bands. And now, seven months later, we can report that this super world phone offers so much to like that it earned our Editors' Choice Award. In the United States, the W760i is available unlocked for about $300 while the W760a is offered by AT&T for $129 with a two-year contract and after a mail-in rebate.
