Sony Ericsson W910i - Sony Ericsson W910i

By Sandra Vogel



Our Score:


Gimmick alert? - Screen auto rotate.

Actually I am not so sure this one is a gimmick. When you twist the phone in your hand the screen can automatically flick into landscape mode, then back into portrait. This is potentially quite useful, but I found it to be a little unreliable.

With just that 35MB of on board memory, you can add more in the Memory Stick Micro slot on the right edge, and to get you started a 1GB card is included. My sample came with a little USB card reader for Memory Stick Micro, coloured in the same rather unbecoming brown as the handset itself.

The camera, as I've already noted, is a mediocre 2-megapixel affair. It has no flash or self-portrait mirror. The coloured dish, photographed indoors under normal household lighting conditions, is a little grainy, but colour reproduction is not bad. Outdoors the white chair is reasonably well reproduced, though definition is not that wonderful. The plant was a wonderful deep green covered with heavy frost, yet the photograph really doesn't do the colour contrast justice at all.

You can photo blog from this handset, but I wouldn't bother if your photos need to be of high quality.

Battery life was reasonable with a little over nine and a half hours of music from a full charge. The dreadful proprietary headset connector remains a Sony Ericsson staple, but at least this one is a two-piece job with a 3.5mm jack past the microphone so you can use your own headphones if you prefer.

As you'd expect from a Sony Ericsson flagship mobile there are plenty of apps here. FM radio, Web browser, RSS reader, calendar, task manager, sound recorder, note taker, stopwatch, timer, calculator and five alarms are among the highlights.


It is not an unreserved thumbs-up for the W910i. The shake control is just a gimmick, the auto screen rotation is more useful when it works. The camera is so-so. But nonetheless this handset does have some appeal.

This was the 3rd Sony Ericsson phone id had and it had to be the worst one ever. Battery life on standby approx 96hrs, forever charging the phone. The phone switches itself off, either on standby, during a call or when composing a text.

The speaker phone is awful, the sound quality is so poor it is not worth switching the loud speaker on. Photos are of a poor quality. I have had 3 handset replacements and I still had the same issues. Will be glad to receive my new phone tommorow, which is not a sony ericsson.

Best thing to do with the W910i??? Put it under the front wheel of a car and run it over.

If you want a reliable phone ....DONT BUY A W910i

This is the worst phone I have ever had. After purchase it repeatedly froze, switched itself off or reset itself at random.

I sent it off for repair under warranty and while it does it less often it still has the same issues.

While I like the phone's design and features I need a handset I can trust, I don't expect to have to keep checking if it's still on or not.

I will never purchase another Sony Ericsson phone again, disgraceful

Agreeing with above comments. Athough I am only 13 years old, I must say from my years of owning a mobile, this is the worst one by far. Not only does it turn itself off, it also randomly calls people, doesn't charge and holds various other problems. I have owned different phones over the years, but my highest success was my Samsung, and my worst this one. My dad sent it back to Orange, who replaced it with an identical phone, same phone, same problems. Again he sent it back, and yet again it has happened. I am currently on my forth phone, and deeply annoyed. I would only recommend this phone to anyone with anger issues who needs to ruin something close to hand (:

Well, I have no idea if I am using the same phone as the previous reviewers use. I have never had any concern about my phone which I purchased in Hong Kong in February 2008. Are those comment objective and constructive, I truly wonder. My phone never switch itself off, sometime I wish it would so I don't have to rememeber to turn it off at night. This phone is no longer new and not many people are buying it but if you are don't believe the above three comments.
