Does its main task very well

from MobileBurn

The Sony Ericsson W715 is a very pleasant device to use, and gave me no real problems when using it, aside from the occasional occurrence of a flashing red light from behind the keypad, which required removal of the battery to stop it. Aside from this, the device performed flawlessly throughout our testing, and I found very little to complain about. Sure, the screen is a bit small for web browsing, and the camera's lack of autofocus and a decent flash was disappointing, but this device is designed for music, so these additional features are merely icing on the cake. The only real worry for this phone is the lack of a 3.5mm audio port, as many non-music specific handsets even have them these days, so the W715 definitely should. Still, even this isn't a huge problem, and is easily overcome with the included adaptor...

Still, even this isn't a huge problem, and is easily overcome with the included adaptor.

The W715 does its main task very well, providing a great audio experience with some added GPS services as a bonus. It's a very nice package overall, and the high quality materials used in its construction give it a robust, expensive feel. It does all the basics well, and the battery life was very good throughout our testing, despite some extensive testing of the phone's features. I was also quite surprised at the number of handy and entertaining extras included on the handset, such as the music quiz game, the TrackID application, and the training tracker.

Overall, I give the Sony Ericsson W715 a "Highly Recommended" rating, as it's a great music phone, and has very few faults to speak of. You'll find a selection of photos taken with the W715 on the following page.
