Sony Ericsson Live

The long-awaited Walkman phone is available for sale - to be precise, Live With Walkman Swedish-Japanese company Sony Ericsson. The new model has a processor running at 1GHz, 512MB RAM and a 5MP camera with the option of recording HD video. In addition, the model WT19i feature two very loud stereo speakers and a separate button to start the player. The device is designed to appeal to those who prefer to communicate within the social networks, not just music fans.

The design, size and operating elementsThis smartphone is very similar to the SE Walkman model mix - both devices feature the same style, even the control buttons are located near each other. Live now, however, characterized by mild-slope case. It is made using several types of plastic: upper and lower sections are made of glossy plastic, while the only part about 3.5mm connector made of soft touch plastic. The screen is protected by a special plastic that can not be easily scratched with sharp objects. The area around the button "Home" and the audio connector is surrounded by green. One gets the impression that it is below that provided LED lighting. "Walkman" logo is also lined with green.
The device is available in two colors: black and white. I personally prefer the white version because fingerprints are not as visible in the case, and I look is appealing.Otherwise, the variations in the white center key and connector are edged with red.

Device due to its shape fits the hand, and through the use of soft plastic will not slip from their hands. Headset is very convenient because the connector on the top.
Despite the large number of negative comments related to the production apparatus, the test is live now recorded excellent results: no creaks or the appearance of any displacement during pressing. There is a possibility that the first volume apparatus was not very successful.

At the front of the case there is a large number of sensors including a proximity sensor. The device works perfectly and quickly respond. Volume is quite high and there is no crackling, and the caller's voice loud and clear. In the vicinity there is a light indicator that points to an empty battery (indicator lights in red) or missed events (white indicator lights). Below the screen there is a semicircular key "Home", which is characterized by a shallow step. On the bottom there is a microphone and holes for camera straps, and the top of the - button to manually start the player, standard 3.5mm connector and on / off button that is used to lock the screen.

The left-hand side is the miniUSB socket that has a lid, while the left button is for volume control. Somewhat lower is key for manual activation of the camera. The presence of this key is of great importance because it is much easier to hit him, but the button on the screen.
Two stereo speakers, and a small camera and LED flash are located on the back of the device.
To remove the back of the device you need to pull it through the slot on the right. SIM card slot is located on the bottom of the screen and memory card from the top.

Generally, I can say that Sony Ericsson LWW features excellent ergonomic design.ScreenScreen resolution model is the minimum standard LWW for Android smart phones - 320x480 pixels. The screen is created using the TFT-LCD technology and can display 16 million colors. Contrary screen model Mini and Mini Pro this screen has a special protective layer and the corresponding image-processing engine Bravia Mobile Engine. It is a capacitive screen, which supports four simultaneous contact with a high level of sensitivity.
Viewing angles are not particularly large, but the image does not rotate screen much to blame, but a reduction in contrast. Color reproduction is intense as the Xperia mini models. screen brightness control sensor and manually adjustable to a maximum value. The screen fades in the sun, but the information remains readable.

Also, within the model Walkman Live With a built-in accelerometer (BMA250), compass (AK8975), proximity sensor, (APDS9702), linear acceleration sensor and G sensor.BatteryThe device features Li-Pol battery capacity of 1200mAh label EP-500 (which exists in models Mini Xperia, Xperia Mini Pro, X8, and other devices). The manufacturer claims that this battery provides up to 6.5 hours of talk time and 350 hours of standby. Time of music is 17 hours.

During testing the following results were obtained: standby smart phone lasted almost a week, or 15 hours of music playback with the most energetic tone (using headphones) and up to 3 hours HD video playback with automatic backlight.
On average 15 - 20 minutes of calls a day, an hour taking pictures and video, music playback or four hours of using Wi-Fi (Twitter and Skype) and two hours of movie watching discharged battery in approximately 8-9 hours. If we compare this with the results achieved with the Xperia Mini and Mini Pro, the result is 15-20% less power.Maximum load battery long conversations does not significantly affect energy consumption. moderate use can extend the battery life an additional 3-5 hours.

Over the USB port on your computer to fully charge the batteries needed 3 hours, with one half hour charger.

CameraThe camera module is not very different from that found in the Xperia Mini and Mini Pro. The device has a 5MP camera with autofocus and LED flash. Maximum resolution is 2592 x 1944 pixels, video clips are recorded in 1280 x 720 pixel resolution at 30 fps. There's also a VGA camera on the front for video calls.
Picture quality is average and comparable to those that can get the Samsung RDF model: they are characterized by low dynamic range and detail, too much digital noise in low light. However, determining the appropriate level of white balance is achieved a better result. The quality of video is good. When recording video can use 8x zoom. It is available as autofocus, a sound is recorded in mono.
To activate the camera you have to click a button on the side of the device. This key has two positions:focusing (click to age) and recording (click to end).

ConclusionThe quality of connection that he had no reason for us is any dissatisfaction with the challenges given that at a similar level as in most of the devices. Vibration strength is good and you can feel it in a jacket pocket.
When I wrote to test smart phone with HTC Incredible, really I did not find any negative aspect of this device. Sony Ericsson LWW is another such device. In this model I was impressed by all the ergonomic design, through excellent finishing and launching the camera manually to a very loud speaker and an excellent processor.

Competitors LWW SE model are not very numerous, even to say that there is no direct competition. For example, Samsung GIO has 2 speakers and a 5MP camera.Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini has a screen diagonal length of 3 ", a speaker and not so good music capabilities. Huawei offers a larger diagonal and resolution, but inferior music player, no camera on the front or stereo speakers, with a slightly older chipset MSM7230 (CPU clock speed is 800MHz). Here we continue the enumeration, but none of the models can not be brought into direct competition.
