Sony Ericsson W380i

Sony Ericsson W380i Purple Color

The W380i is a Sony Ericsson Walkman® music phone which comes with a stylish clamshell opening mechanism & with a beautifully finished casing. Out of all the phones, this is probably the one with the most different design. The Sony Ericsson W380i Walkman phone is a flip phone but unlike other flip phones, at first glance, the Sony Ericsson W380i doesn’t seem to have an external display.

The handset is available in two sleek colours which include an electric purple & a magnetic grey colour. Cool and special color huh? The clamshell design is stylish & practical as the phone comes with touch control music keys & music information displayed on the external casing of the handset. The user can use the external controls to play, pause or skip their music.

The phone comes with a high colour internal screen which is ideal for displaying music information, call details, images & messaging service when the phone is in its flipped open position. The internal screen is a TFT screen which is 1.9 inches in size & provides a screen resolution of 176 x 220 pixels on a 262k colour screen.

The W380i comes with a key lock feature which is simple to activate & allows the user to lock their external keys, so therefore the music will not accidentally start playing when the handset is in the users pocket or bag.

There is a very interesting and cool feature in W380i. There is a motion sensor which allows you to wave your hand over the phone in order to snooze an alarm or to silence an incoming call. Wow, it’s a pretty cool feature.

The W380i comes with 14MB internal memory and as other phones, there is Memory Stick Micro expandable memory. Besides, the W380i comes with a built in camera feature which allows the user to capture photos during their day. The camera is a 1.3 megapixel camera which comes complete with a 4 x digital zoom which allows the user to get up closer to their target when taking a shot.

    Can’ think of a worse phone……it went off all of a sudden one day and never came on again. It’s not even a year old (I bought it last July (2008)) and its stopped working in May 2009. It been back and forth to the service centre and their have been little or no help and extremely rude. The service centre guys said that since it was a softwareproblem the same needs to be paid for as it was not covered under the warranty, so I had to pay Rs.1200/- (I was hoping that at least I would not have to pay for the repair ‘cos it was less than a year old). So for all of you who like this little phone ……beware the book and the cover is very different…

    This is the worst phone in the universe I think
    I own this now….
    Just after purchasing it, after 3 months i got it repaired @ service centre – speaker complaint…
    After 6 months again … same complaint….
    After 10 months again … same complaint…..
    After 13 months the same complaint and lot other complaints….
    Now the service period is over and I am planning to purchase another phone ……
    No body will buy this second hand… if they know about its feature that “Vist Service Centre once in 3 months” ……

    Decent phone but buttons do not respond well after you have used it for a few months. Speaker phone aint that good but surprisingly music plays well on the same speaker :O
    Gesture control is kewl though is seldom used.
    External controls and the translucent display are pretty cool.

    Value for money and more importantly you don’t see it in like every fifth person’s hand :)
