Best Speaker Phone Sony Ericsson W550i

October 10th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sony Ericsson presents latest design cell phone Sony Ericsson W550I. Its two stand-out components are the speakers and the flip mechanism. Tired of clamshell designs, I found the spin refreshing, though there’s no lock at the 90° position, as there is on the W600. And it opens upside down. The speakers are prominent on top and side, and this helps send out the ‘music on the move’ message. Sound-wise, there’s no discernable difference on the inside from the K750. Both handsets use the same sound processor and emit the same 40-voice polyphonic range.

The speakers are good for voice too perhaps better than playing the world (or night bus) your latest tracks, but some Mega Bass and stereo phones make the best of the MP3s and AAC files. The Sony Ericsson W550I’s insides may be the same as other Sony Ericsson devices, but the external design is different and so is the functionality. Even for the Nokia-influenced user, they’re easy to pick up.

Turn on the phone and you will be prompted to choose between phone or music-only modes – the latter handy for aircraft, hospitals and so forth as the radio is disabled. The Sony Ericsson W550I is Bluetooth enabled. Expect 510 minutes of talk time and a whopping 400 hours of standby time in ideal circumstances, claims Sony Ericsson. The phone is light – just 121g.

Aside from the upgradeable firmware and Java support, this Bluetooth phone is POP3 ready, enabling email from a third-party email server. The WAP service is complemented by a fully compatible HTML browser. Hardware-wise, the camera is 1.3mp digital camera with flash. The camera has its own button, but the Sony Ericsson W550I needs to be closed to use it. There’s no optical zoom, but the quality is high. The flash is bright enough to get a clear capture in a dark room. Video capture is easy with such a nice screen.

Other on-board amusements an FM radio complete with Radio Data Support (RDS) feeds, essentially a weather/news ticker over the radio screen, and some nice pre-packed games, including Worms, Fortress 3D and the classic Gauntlet. Please purchase online www.phoneandbeyond.com

    Looking for best speaker & music cellphone?
    I’m currently looking for a replacement for my motorola e398. E398 got amazing speakers w/ great bass punch, so I’m particularly interested in ones with great sounding speakers and music player-headset. I tried Sony Ericsson w550i/600i before and found the speakers lacking bass punch and annoyingly loud at times.

    I’m currently trying to make up my mind between:
    SE w900i – w850i – w880i – w810i
    Samsung d900 (ultra 12.9 in US)
    Motorola E2 – e6
    I’m definitely not a nokia fan but I heard the n91 and 5300 got great speakers, so I might consider it too.

    Btw I’m planning to switch to Cingular, heard they don’t allow unlocked cell users to have access to many of their services, is it true?

    Price isnt a big deal, as I always use unlocked phones anyways. Any suggestions, even if the model you recommend isnt on my list, would be really appreciated. Thanks

    You should get either the Motorola ROKR E2, E6 or RAZR V6 Maxx. These phones pack bass punch with their stunning Bass Control and equalizer functions. The E2 is smaller, is cheaper of the three and is a candybar phone. The E6 has a touchscreen like a pda and the Maxx has external touch-sensitive music control keys on the outer flip.
