I got his phone after getting a great deal from 3 to get this phone several years ago and I still have no problem with it. I have been using this phone for abour three years now and although it does not compete with the new super phones it has not aged and the battery is still as good as ever.
The camera is 2.0 mega pixel, with a zoom function which can be used when taking photos but not when filming. Clam shaped and available in three colours - black, pink and blue, this phone has design in mind as well as functionality. A hidden screen on the front displays relevant information and a large colour screen in housed inside. Though not the sharpest in quality it certainly allows enough detail.
A number of 'games' and applications are included, including a music player and MusicDJ.
A mid range phone which is deffinately durable and functional.
What a lovely phone the sony ericsson z750i is, I find it so easy to use. I have the purple one one many a friend of commented on it being "posh"
It came with a 128mb memory card and as i use my phone as a phone and not a digital camera or mp3 player, thats plenty of storage for me
It has a 2mp camera, which is good quality for that moment when you havent a camera but need a quick snap, admittedly the quality is not the best, but your making a memory not a landscape. It also shoots video which is useful.
I have quite a few ringtones on mine and a few songs, the playback on the songs is good quality and loud enough for me. But obviously if you replace the memory card for a couple of pound it would be better storage. It also has a radio and uses the headphones as its antenna.
The buttons are clear and the functions are easy to use, it can also be used on the net, and i`ve used this phone throughouteurope and USA with no problems at all, unlike some of the newer phones, it picks up a signal almost everywhere.
It has all the useful things found on most phones and i use the alarm clock and organiser most days. The calulator stopwatch, timer and notebook is also useful.
My parner who doesnt see very well and is a total techno phobic uses one of these too and he finds it very useful to use, it also came with a little suede holder so it keeps tidy.
It also has bluetooth and when i get in my car it synchronises with my car itself and is completely handsfree.
Sony Ericsson Z750i

External Icon Display OLED Screen (36 x 128 Pixels)

I have had this phone for around 9 months now and I love it. In fact, I love it so much that I had the same model (different colour) last year and when I upgraded, and saw that it was available in purple, I had to get it again! (last years model was pink - I know it's girly but hey, I like it!).
The phone is a 3G clamshell design which I find important as it means I can throw it in my bag and not accidentally press buttons or scratch the screen. The handset is 20mm deep, 97.4mm high & 49mm wide, weighs 110 grams, has a mirrored dual screen and when it rings, the number shines through the mirror to allow you to see who is calling. It also has quad band technology, 3G video calling, a built in radio and comes with headphones.
The camera is good and I use it for moderate internet access (Facebook, Google, emails etc) which is always effective.
I admit that initially, I was drawn to the phone because of how it looked but it has proved itself to be a winner for me. It has everything I need, is reliable and easy to use and though I am on my second one, has always performed well, without any problems. In fact, my only problem is that I am due an upgrade soon, and can't see anything on the market that I like as much as this phone - I may just have to keep it until it eventually stops working!
In summary, I highly recommend this phone, more details are available from the website listed below, but for me, this handset is a winner and I love it!
The Sony Ericsson Z750i is a very attractive little phone that is straight forward to use. It has many good features and comes in some very nice vibrant colors, The picture quality is quite good for taking photos as long as you are completely still while taking the photo but the video setting is quite poor once anything starts moving, not the best for video use. Navigating through the menus is all quite easy although getting information off the web is quite tricky and caused me a few problems. It is a good phone for what your paying but is no match for more expensive all singing all dancing phones which is to be expected. It also lacks a converter which the older version had and was something I found very useful on a day to day basis. I had the older version of this phone and when I upgraded to the newer version was quite disappointed in the fact it hadn't improved but lost some good features. but still a good purchase.
The Sony Ericsson Z750i is a relatively stylish mid-ranged clamshell offering. Its come in a variety of different colours hinting at a phone perhaps designed more with fashion in mind than functionality. I personally have this one in black.
On first appearance the Z750i is a nice looking phone if somewhat chunky. On the outside there's a clever hidden display which will light up to notify you of such things as missed calls or un-read text messages.
Open up the phone and you'll see a big screen which doesn't have the sharpest display around but it does do the job. You'll also find a large, well spaced out keypad which takes on the familiar Sony Ericsson layout. The keypad is great for those with larger hands due to the size of the keys but anyone with smaller hands would probably struggle to text comfortably as its does have a wide base.
The functionality of the phone is as you'd expect for a mid range phone. There's a 2MP camera which provides reasonable results, although there is no auto focus as its not a cyber shot phone. There is also 3G for fast internet browsing along with a secondary VGA camera for video calling. This is coupled with what a now standard features such as sms, calendar, alarm, etc. This is all operated through the standard Sony Ericsson menu system which is very intuitive and easy to use.
As a phone its provides good call clarity and doesn't have a problem finding signal of the bigger networks and is hampered only by the fact that it is now only available new on the 3 network.
Overall this is a good mid range 3G phone. It is a stylish phone in a clamshell design which are becoming increasingly rare these days. Its great for those with big hand due to the size of the key's and keypad but the flip side of this is it would prove un-comfortable for those with smaller hands.
Got this phone free with a £15 contract with 3- a bargain! It may not be the most cutting edge model on the market, and certainly can't rival anything like an iPhone (lust!), but it's a lovely snazzy little shiny phone- and it does everything a phone should without any major problems.
The phone is a clamshell design with a "hidden" outside screen that shows the time and caller ID. The buttons are of an average size, and extremely easy to use for just about anyone, I'd think.
I use my phone for a lot of internet browsing (using Opera, which I downloaded on to the phone- the default browser doesn't display webpages particularly well, and also has a firewall in it)- which it does smoothly and efficiently, including viewing attachments to emails, etc.
The camera is 2mp, about average really, and takes photos which look decent when you put them on the computer screen (I have a mac- so unfortunately the link-up cable available doesn't work- I get around this by emailing the photos to myself from my phone as attachments. A little time-consuming, but it works). You can't view the photos very big on the phone itself though, and the zoom distorts the quality massively, so it's best to just stick to casual snaps.
Call-wise it's comfortable to use, and the sound quality is good, with a loudspeaker option which all works fine.
There are a few minor problems with it- for example, when I first got it, switching from a motorola, I noticed a slight lag in keypad typing. I text FAST, and having to wait for the message to catch up with me, and the letters getting all garbled in the process, is massively frustrating! I've since just adjusted to typing slower to avoid this, but I so liked my speed-texting! It would be much more convenient to type faster on it, particularly as I use it for the internet (and therefore emails) quite a lot.
I'd also like to be able to customise it a bit more- for example it would be convenient have shortcuts to most-used applications on the "home" screen. You can create shortcuts, but only to folders rather than specific applications. Again, because I use the internet a lot, to get to my browser I have to go to Main Menu->"My Stuff"-> Applications-> Other-> Opera. Which is a right hassle! The default browser is shortcutted on the home page, but I don't want to use the default browser! It's quite patronising to have everything already organised for you, and not be able to change it.
You also can't turn off the animated main menu icons, which are quite irritating. I think the phone would navigate better with a more stripped down menu system.
Some people might find it a little clunky- especially switching from a Motorola RAZR it's like a brick! It won't fit in a jeans pocket without leaving an unsightly bulge. But it's also sturdy- god knows I've dropped mine on the floor, sat on it, kicked it into puddles, etc, etc, and it hasn't suffered from it, not even a scratch.
The battery life is impressive- I use my phone a lot, for texting and emailing, and even with sending 80+ texts a day (I know!) the battery stays on "green" for about three or four days no problem. Calling uses the battery up quite a bit faster- I can make about five hours of calls before it starts beeping at me. The battery also wears down faster when travelling- for example on a train where you're flitting in and out of signal areas, and the phone has to keep on re-registering the network. But other than that, I've had it about 7 months and the battery's never been a problem.
All in all it's fantastic if you use your phone for phoning and texting and don't want to worry about much else. But if you want to spend tonnes of time fiddling with it and making it really "yours" then you'd probably prefer a Nokia. It's a get-up-and-go phone, not a techno-phile phone.
I have had this phone on a contract with 3mobile since October last year. Its a great little phone, it comes in blue, pink and black. The front is actually quite metallic which doesnt show in the picture. The time, signal bar and other display stuff when its shut looks great as it sort of floats inside the display and you cant see the edges of the screen inside.
When you open the phone to answer a call the caller is displayed. You can also answer the phone if you have headphones in by pressing the button on the headphones.
Its quite a light phone, and when unfolded looks quite large against your face. The screen quality is quite good and its got a 2mp camera which is good for nights out. Theres no flash but there is a night mode which helps. It costs around £150 new, but on contract with 3 its free, and second hand in cex its selling for £70 if its slightly scratched. Its got all the features like calender, clock, notebook, camera, mp3 player, caller options, phone book.
Really a great little phone but I wouldnt pay for it I would recommend getting it on contract. I have dropped it many a time and although it is quite scratched it still works perfectly. I have also dropped it in water and it worked after taking the battery out for the night.
I have had this phone for quite a long time - i.e more than a year. It comes with a white cover or a pink one, and being a girl, I like the pink one. It was given to me as present - I don't think I personally would have chosen it.
It looks great and I love the fact it is a clam phone, in the past I was always having trouble with my phone pressing buttons in my handbag, but this one doesn't. The only exception is the camera - there is a button on the side of the phone so you can take pics with the clam shut - so you can take a photo of yourself I guess, and that's fine but that button is always getting pressed in my bag and I keep hearing camera clicking away taking pictures of the dark interior of my handbag. It takes a while to delete photos!
It is quick to get going when you switch it on, and can access the sim within seconds, which is a big improvement on my last phone.
Battery time and talk time are both excellent - it lasts days for me before I need to charge it.
The screen is ordinary, but does the job, and it does photo messaging, WAP etc - most of the things you need. It has a big memory for texts, but I still find myself clearing out, but it does give you a decent warning when getting full. I think it might take 200 stored messages.
It has a good camera and great video, but it only takes really short bits of video - small enough to send and I'd like to have the option to take a longer bit of video I could download via bluetooth or a USB.
The thing that irritates me about Sony Ericsson as opposed to Nokia (I've had a pile of Nokias) is that every flipping phone has a different connector, so I don't have a car charger for it, as the one I had for my previous Sony Ericsson doesn't fit it, and I'm too cross about it to buy another one.
The buttons are nice and large so you can dial and text easily, and it's easy ot navigate around. It also has a good button on the side which will show you your appointments in the front window without needing to flip it open, that can be useful for a discrete check in a meeting, and it also tells you with a button on the side how much power is left. That is really useful, as if you get low, that will tell you your remaining percentage instead of relying on a visual and inaccurate 5 bar system or something and you can switch off to conserve energy.
Here are the stats:
1. Weight 110 g
2. Size (mm) 97.4 x 49 x 20 mm
3. Frequency GSM 850/900/1800/1900
4. Bluetooth Yes
5. MMS Yes
6. GPRS Yes
7. MP3 Yes
8. Built in Radio Yes
9. Camera Options Built in
10. Java Yes
11. 3G Compatible Yes
So all in all it's not bad, and I've haven't replaced it yet, so it must be doing its job!It doesn't have a radio, or a TV, which I think is a shame, but then it's pink, and I'm a girl, so i'll forgive it quite a lot.
