Sony Ericsson Zylo

This phone was launch at the same time as the SE Spiro and that model has a 3.5mm port, so what gives? The Spiro does not have the features as good as the Zylo, so why on earth would Sony Ericsson put a 3.5mm port there instead of the Zylo? Anyway, back to its design, on the right side is the volume toggle and camera button. Sliding the Zylo up and down was not a problem and it certainly feels solid enough.

The camera found on the Zylo is neither fantastic nor terrible. A 3.2 megapixel shooter is just about as basic as it gets these days. Pictures in daylight turned out beautifully but night time shot were quite terrible, even more so due to the absence of a flash. For best results, keep your hand steady because it isn’t that fast altogether. Its video player is about as basic as the camera too.

It’s a pity it has no Wi-Fi since everyone loves going on to Facebook and Twitter. But there’s always 3G for that. As with most SE phones these days, you can snap pics and post on Picasa and Flickr, plus, watching Youtube videos on its 2.6 inch screen isn’t a bad idea too.

Battery life is nothing to shout about. I managed two days under full usage. This slider comes in three interestingly named colors, namely Jazz Black, Chacha Silver and Swing Pink. Connectivity wise, everything is there, save the pre-mentioned Wi-Fi. Internal memory in this phone is at 260MB but it is expandable up to 16GB with a microSD card slot.

Overall, there a few nice features on this phone, but some spoilers just ruin the whole magic of it. If you are looking for a new phone with good music features and decent in day-to-day usage, then you should check out the Zylo.
