The Good The Sony Ericsson Z750a had an enjoyable feature set, user-friendly controls, a brilliant display, and satisfying call quality.
The Bad The Sony Ericsson Z750a's construction felt a tad cheap, and its external display wasn't very useful. Also, its interface was somewhat slow, and its speakerphone underperformed.
The Bottom Line The Sony Ericsson Z750a is successful on many fronts, but its plastic shell and slow interface were worrisome.
Sony Ericsson Z750
Sony Ericsson may have been a bit late to the flip-phone game, but this year the company has done a lot to catch up. Just last month we examined AT&T's Sony Ericsson Z310a and now we turn our attention to the Sony Ericsson Z750a. Sporting a minimalist design with above average dimensions, the Z750a offers a midrange feature set with Bluetooth, a megapixel camera and support for North American 3G networks. As if this writing the GSM Z750a is available only as an unlocked model in the United States and Canada but we wouldn't be surprised if it landed at AT&T.
Like many Sony Ericsson phones, the Z750a comes in multiple colors: phantom gray and rose pink. The pink version, which we examined, isn't as garish as the pink model of the Z310a, but it's still bright and shiny. It shows your reflection, albeit a rose-tinted one, and like any mirror, it attracts fingerprints. We weren't crazy about it, to be frank, but it's certainly eye-catching. As stated above, the Z750a is a tad bulky, but not excessively so. It measures 3.8 inches by 1.9 inches by 0.8 inch and weighs 3.9 ounces. It fits in comfortably, but the outer plastic casing felt a bit flimsy.
