Sony Ericsson V630i Review
The Sony Ericsson
V630i is a 3G music phone exclusive to Vodafone. Almost identical in appearance
and functionality to the Sony Ericsson
K610i, this is a lightweight 3G phone with a high specification. Vodafone
have added some additional music features such as Vodafone RadioDJ. This
is an interactive music streaming service that lets you make your own
music channels by rating tracks as you listen. Or you can simply choose
to listen to your favourite digital radio station. The V630i also incorporates
a music player and a memory card for storing plenty of MP3 tracks. A stereo
headset is supplied as standard. Be aware though that users are reporting
a fair number of faults and reliability problems with this handset. Read
our full review of the Sony Ericsson
K610i for more details.

I just bought this phone 2 days ago and i have to say its the best phone
i have ever had!! The day before i bought the sony ericsson w200i but
took it back and replaced it with this one as it did not have bluetooth!(best
decision ever)!!.. It has everything i need on it!! no problems, great
colour!(white and orange) and great design! I have downloaded all my
fav songs so theres no need for an mp3 player! The camera is fab!...what
more can i say!?!...and mine came with little speakers that plug in
to the bottom so theres no need for a stereo either!! BUY THIS PHONE!!

Got V630i from vodafone as part of contract extension. Very good deal
and well worth the money. However, the phone comes really poor in its
installations. Vodafone puts all ringtones and games online for users
to download and pay! So, you need to pay for your games, ringtones.
I am not a game-frique using mobiles for all functions, but a typical
mobile should come with two or three ringtones should not it? Overall
converting from Nokia 6260 to Sony Ericsson was a good choice though,
Phone is reliable despite vodafone's rip off!!! So my phone rating is
5, but partnership woth vodafone reduced it to 3. Sorry Sony Ericsson!

Having had a W800i and W810i I had no problem buying this phone, I have

Functionaly it is absolutely terrific and a pleasure to use, its really
responsive to use and all functions are layed out in a typical Sony
Ericsson fashion--which is basically convenient and simple to use! Its
light and comfortable to use when calling--texting is also a pleasure
with really nice buttons! With 3G capability--video calling and features
like Video DJ,Superb MP3 player featuring M2 Micro cards with flash

I got this phone for christmas, and before i got it i decided to look
at the reviews on this page and was very nearly put off. howevever i
can say i am really delighted with this phone, it looks great and in
my opinion it looks better than most of the walkman phones. it has the
same capabilities of the walkman range, if not more, and it is generally
cheaper. vodaphone live is great with really fast (and free) sports
news, plus good extras such as free film reviews and downloads. the
sound quality is really good, and i got a free pair of speakers which
makes it very listenable in the house because the speakers are loud.
there are a few let downs, such as no flash, the camera quality is not
quite as good as other 2MP phones and i have experienced once or twice
the echo call effect, but not very often. i have not used 3G, radio
dj or mobile tv but i can only presume these would make the phone even
better.i bought this phone for £120 of the vodaphone website and it
feels like day light robbery as it is a phone with 2MP, 256MB memory
provided plus phone memory, free speakers, good service from vodaphone,
very light and easy to use, and great extra features which are awesome
such as face warp and video editing. top marks

I LOVE THIS PHONE!! This is one of the many fruits of Sony Ericsson,
building on their T610i design, bringing a range of UNBEATABLE PHONES!!!!
(The only problem is theyre all virtually the same). The bluetooth version
of the Sega Tennis is absolutely awesome (but i spose that only appeals
2 kids (like me!), it's light, much hardier, and the speaker are LOUDER
than the expensiver W800i, and W810i's that I see around alot, and its
absolutely supercharged with 3G-The usual, plus telly, Radio DJ!!! (The
only problem is with that is I live 10 Miles away from any 3G coverage
=[) This phone is absolutely awesome, but theres only one this that
baffles me about it- its only availiabe in Black/Orange or White/Orange,
which are now S.E.'s signature "Walkman" colour schemes, it has a similar
MP3 player on it, so why not change it to "W630i"- plaster it with "Walkman"
logos, and I bet it wud sell tonnes more lol =] There are only very
few tweaks to this fone I would make- a FM radio would be nice, a flash,
plus an infrared port for sharing files with less fortunate friends...
I chose this phone over the K750i, which my brother had bought for christmas,
but I couldnt resist the pure brilliance radiating from it. PS, Gary
(comment below), the K800i is one of Sony Ericssons leading phones,
costing well over 200 quid, so why compare it (AND SWAP IT!?!?!) with
a much more affordable jobby????

I AM SO HAPPY WITH THIS PHONE!!! Since the dawn of man (well since 1994
anyway) Ive been a committed Nokia man...with a slight misguided sway
on one occasion to Samsung, but the less said the better about that!
I have a Nokia phone for work but am changing jobs so wanted to get
my own phone before I actually changed. However, Nokia didn't have anything
that really blew my skirt up so I defected and went to Sony Ericsson.
I bought the 630i on a bit of a whim...I liked the fact it was white.
However, I was not to be disappointed. The quality of the phone, the
clarity of the screen, the ease of use have confirmed that this phone
is ten times better than anything Nokia can produce. Ive had it for
five weeks with no problems, and cant find fault with it. If you're
considering a new phone, BUY THIS ONE! My partner (also a committed
Nokia freak) bought the Nokia 5500 Sport on Saturday. What a load of
****! In fact, its for sale on eBay if anyone wants to buy it! ive persuaded
him to change to a Sony 810i and although he only bought it this evening,
he loves it!!!! Sorry Nokia, your phones just aint up to it anymore!

It is with great sadness that i have to give such a good phone only
2 stars. Why? Just 1 day after i first switched it on i pressed the
phonebook icon only to receive a white screen. After 5 seconds of nothing
but a blank white screen the phone switched itself off. It also started
getting incredibly hot. You wont be wrong in thinking you've read this
somewhere before...just scroll down and there is another review not
too dissimilar to this one. So could this be a fault in the V630i line?
Well, i took my phone straight back to the Vodafone shop. Luckily there
was no hassle and the chap went straight into the stockroom to get me
a brand spanking new V630i. Only time will tell whether this one is
any good but in the meantime i will tell you about the features. The
camera is really good quality at 2mp, ok its not k800i quality but it
doesn't have the k800i price tag either. The mobile TV is excellent
quality too and video calls are simple and easy to do. I haven't used
Vodafone's heavily advertised RadioDJ yet but in my opinion this phone
should of had a dedicated FM radio. So, all in all this phone should
have been 4 stars (excellent phone) but instead it is a measly 2 stars.
It was nearly only 1 star but Vodafone's excellent customer service
gave it the extra star. It is such a shame that a good phone like this
only receives 2 stars, so beware...this phone looks good but it hides

I'm now on my second phone. The first one locked up 3 times before it

phone is great appart from that, good size, weight, battery and features.
Phone works well with the BMW bluetooth most of the time but sometimes
has to be stitched off and back on to get a connection that works. Both
units know the other exists, they just fail to communicate sometimes;

Got this a week ago and so far I've been impressed. The sound is fantastic

have to take into account the advantage of 3G. Not much woried about
the camera, get a proper one for taking pictures, that applies to those
who moan about picture quality! Compare to Nokia, this is great value
for money. Got a 256MB card included. I won't get bored with this!!

Had this phone a couple of weeks and it is perfect, does everything
I wanted and is reliable with good battery life. I had bought a Samsung
D900 which I loved but the bluetooth wasn't compatable with the bluetooth
built into my BMW so I took it back to the shop and they recommended
this phone. Easy to use, light and nice looking!!

Some of the ratings on here nearly put me off getting this phone. I
can only assume some folk are in a bad reception area or they've just
been unlucky, or are just miserable, It does everything you would expect
and more. The only downside is the speakerphone but they're generally
pretty grim on mobiles (although I've only had used them on a couple,
but they were both rubbish). All told I would highlt recommend this

Always been a Nokia girl, but this year for my upgrade iI was advised
not to by chap in phone shop, he offered me the Samsung Z400, what a
piece of junk, battery life rubbish so I went back to the shop and another
chap suggested the Sony V630i. What a fab phone, really easy to use,
I love it, battery life fantastic, goes for about 3/4 days without needing
a charge, ringtones loud and clear, plus software included to download
own songs, good memory plus memory card too!!! In stitches over face
warp photo mode too, very funny. Will not go back to Nokia now!!!!

Been using this for about 2 months and on the whole seems pretty good.
But.. Bluetooth is unreliable (compared to Razr) Occasionally locks
itself and just clicks and pops through the speaker. Most annoyingly,
sometimes the speaker stops working and you can't hear it ring. A reset
fixes all of these, but shouldn't be necessary!

I have had this phone for a week. And I love it. It's so easy to use,
really well thought out I think. I really love the Face Warp application,
you can take photo's of your friends, and there faces change to loads
of different shapes and deformaties. it great fun, we where in stitches
for hours. I like the camera, the photo's are sharp, and the music options
are so varied. Great little phone.

I have had this phone for about 6 weeks... it's been brilliant! Great
camera quality, battery life and the best little sound system! No ir
which was a bit of a let down but it does have bluetooth... I reccommend
it 2 all

I chose this model as a replacement for a K750i which was stolen by
some piece of lowlife. Didn't want to learn a new menu system and as
this was the only SE Vodafone would offer me I didn't really have much
choice! Anyway having had the phone for 1 week here are a few of my
thoughts. Battery life, call reception and voice clarity are all excellent.
The display seems a little brighter and sharper than the 750i (to me
anyway). MP3 playback, texting all good. No flash on the camera which
isn't a huge problem for me but might be for others. Data transfer from
PC to handset via USB is much much quicker than the 750. Not had a chance
to try out the 3g features yet so can't comment on these. No built in
FM radio -you need to get this service from Vodafone. Not impressed
with this at all. Overall a decent, light, reliable little phone which
does exactly what its meant to with the only real drawback for me is
the lack of a built in radio.

Previous Phone was a Nokia 5140, and I wanted a phone that was a Walkman
type phone .. inc a radio. Earmarked the v810i but then vodafone direct
in their wisdom took it away, so settled for the v630i - almost identical
but no radio.. Excellent phone, easy to use mp3 player and has the loads
of storage (1gb card are cheap!) Easy to use and navigate. Good Battery
Life and calls are clear. Only things against it is no radio, and i've
got a bad feeling that the arrow buttons might give up after a years
use of so.. hope i'm proved wrong. Overall a great little phone, nice
and small too!! Highly Recommended!! Ethan.

This phone is one word. brilliant. THe camera is great, but no flash
- but if you want top quality get a proper digital camera - mp3 player
is second to none and it looks pretty cool. I have had absouloutely
no problems, and i would highly recommend

Ive had this phone for a few weeks now and ive decided its a quality
piece of kit. Its fairly cheap and you get what you pay for. Reception
is good and texting is fine. The camera quality is more than good enough
and 3G is extremly quick. The music playback is to a highstandard too.

The callers get terrible feedback, the phone is unusable! I've upgraded
the software from the sonye website and it still doesn't rectify, stay
away from this handset!!! Vodafone and Sony just don't want to know,
yet I switch the sim to my nokia and calls are fine.

NICE LOOKING PHONE - SHAME YOU CAN'T USE IT !!!! I recently upgraded
my Sony Ericsson P900i phone via Vodafone to the new Sony Ericsson V630i
approximately 3 weeks ago. We have only had the phone for just over
2 weeks and the phone has only been charged only twice. Today the phone
got extremely hot (boiling) to the point were you could not handle the
handset, the phone then flashed battery low - it then cut out, leaving
me unable to use the phone and contact anyone. Luckily I took the phone
to work today and it was on my desk at all times, as I hesitate to think
what may have happened if I had left the phone at home ? Has anyone
else experienced these problems ? If so, what can we do about it ? Kind
regards Miss P Hill.
