Sony Ericsson W610i review

 Review: May 2007  


In a nutshell: Candy bar style phone with 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, video camera, music player, radio, memory card and Bluetooth.


The Sony Ericsson W610i is a mid-range Walkman phone with the new Walkman® 2.0 player. The first thing to say is that this is yet another superb phone from Sony Ericsson. It's not at the top end of the range, so it misses out on a couple of features, but offers almost everything you'd want from a music phone at a good price.

The Walkman range is now established as probably the best range of mobile phones for playing music. The W610i has the latest version of the Walkman player and is pretty well as easy as using an iPod. The Walkman key gives you one-click access to the player and from there you can play, rewind, fast forward, equalise, shuffle tracks and create playlists. Audio quality is as good as a dedicated MP3 player, and a standard set of headphones is included in the sales package. The phone is also compatible with stereo Bluetooth wireless headsets - available separately. The W610i is equipped with Sony Ericsson's MegaBass™ feature which enhances bass frequencies - a useful feature to switch on for some types of music. It also has PlayNow™ & TrackID™. PlayNow is a service for downloading ringtones (which you have to pay for) and TrackID is a free service that identifies songs that you hear on the radio - cool.

Comprehensive CD-ripping software (Disc2Phone) is supplied with the phone and the USB mass storage interface lets you transfer music with drag and drop simplicity. Whilst the built-in memory of the phone is limited, the W610i is compatible with Sony's Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) memory cards, and a 512 Mbyte card (enough for around 100 songs) is included in the sales package. This can be expanded to 2 Gbytes - a 2 Gbyte card can be bought for around £30. In addition to the music player, the W610i also includes an RDS FM radio.

The W610i has the same type of camera used in the W810i - a 2 megapixel camera with autofocus and a flash. It can also capture video clips. This is an excellent camera - one of the best in the sub-£200 price range. The display is a bright, clear TFD LCD which is easy to read. It doesn't have the high resolution of the flagship Walkman phone (the W880i), but again is one of the best in this price range.

Physically, the W610i is quite a bit thinner than the older W810i, but isn't as thin as the ultra-thin W880i. It's a good size to hold in your hand. The only gripe that we have about the W610i is the small size of the keys. If you've got big hands you'd be better off sticking with the W810i.

Overall, this is another fantastic Walkman phone, positioned in the sub-£200 market and offering outstanding value for money, with the small key size the only issue. The big question is how the W610i fits into the Walkman range. Is it a replacement for the W810i or is it a lower-spec model? We think that it's really the replacement for the W810i. Compare the W610i and the W810i and you'll see that the feature list is nearly identical - the main difference is that the W610i is thinner, has a new style of keypad and uses the latest software. The W810i was one of the very best phones of 2006, and the W610i is a worthy successor. Other phones to consider are the near-identical K550i, the 3G W660i and the ultra-slim W880i.

Sony Ericsson W610i features include:

  • 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, photo light and 2.25x digital zoom
  • Camcorder
  • Display: TFD LCD, 262,000 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
  • Walkman music player (supports MP3 & AAC formats)
  • FM radio
  • Polyphonic ringtones / Music tones
  • Speakerphone
  • Sound recorder
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, email
  • 3D Java games
  • Animated wallpaper
  • WAP, Web browser, RSS feeds, picture blogging
  • Memory: Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) support (512 Mbyte card included)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB mass storage, infrared, modem
  • Organiser: Alarm clock, Calculator, Calendar, Contacts, Notes, Phone book, Stopwatch, Tasks, Timer
  • Flight mode
  • Vibration alert
  • Quadband
  • Size: 102 x 46 x 14 mm
  • Weight: 93g

A very good phone, or should I say an extremely good phone. I had mines for 2 yrs now and although it has died and past on it was really ejoyable. It is a strong phone, i used to drop mines every second every day and it worked just fine although when I upgraded to a 2 gb card it was annoyingly slow, some of the apps wont even load. All in all its a good phone. Ideal for kids (like myself) as it can take the knocks. The screen got damaged and a purplinh blob formed in the top of the screen though that can be fixed by takiing it to your local phone shop. Right now im going to try and ressurect it fix the screen and try and keep for another 2 yrs hopefully or ill buy a samsung jet or a different touchscreen phone.

ive had this fone since late august 2008, and only a couple of small probs with mine - the speaker went dead and i couldnt hear people in calls but they could hear me and the memory card went corrupt veryyy quickly, only the 2nd time i connected it up 2 my laptop. it is an AMAZING FONE. i would recommend this to young kids as it can b battered and bruised and still work lol. but now sim card readers gone, and gonna get a nokia e75. but as it says on the sony ericsson website, the W610i realllli is a fone tht touches ur senses. i luv it 2 bits!!!!!

Worset Phone ever made, worked well for the first month, but couldnt handle the day to day tear and wear. now will not turn on properly, has a tendency to not recieve text sms, phone calls cut short, freezing up, back of phone dosnt stay on meaning battery falls out lossing the time every time its in my pocket, music player was good, untill the speaker fell out, glued back in, but never the same sound, bluetooth inactive, will assign random pieces of deleted pictures to contacts photos, loved the phone for the first phew months but such a shame it is falling to pieces

Reviewed by Mark from UK on 7th Jan 2009
Works competently as a phone and mp3 player, but the camera is less than perfect. My k750i's camera was leagues ahead. The pictures are worse than what I get out of my old 1.3Mp mini digi cam. The buttons are also too small. Nice features, but could be so much better with keys designed for human beings and a camera that performed more competently than a VGA one (slight exageration lol). Oh, and the vibration is weedy... only had a few months and already looking to upgrade. But not bad overall.

Reviewed by Stuart Pot from UK on 14th Dec 2008
Very good phone. I am a fan on SE and always have been. Sadly the orange part of my speakers has fallen off, not a problem as i can still hear them perfectly but oh well...also how do you get the back off? This is really going to frustrate me! Thanks

Its not the best of phones. As i have only had it a few months and It it really fiddly and the keypad repeats itself when im typing for another letter. The camera is a bit orange when taking pictures and the battery life if quite good. I would but I wouldn't recommend it. If you're considering it then good luck with yours but as mine and my mates ours are basically rubbish!

phone feels very cheap camera takes quite a while to load and takes the pic very slowly so u get a bad picture incase someone moves in that tym had to replace it almost straight away.the size is truly awful. buttons very fiddley. got an n70 instead i wud highly recomend it... although it has clear loud sound quality

I was jus impressed, the sound leaves a little to be desired, high quality pictures and the most impressing part that you can actually connect to a pc without the drivers installed and still be able to access your files. Even when browsing the web its speed is quite good. Jus that its night shots a bad, i took it as wat separates the w and k series. Generally Impressive. You need to own one!

The phones quite a look and slim but it comes with its downsides. The good would be its not a huge phone and it doesnt way alot but thats about it. The bad is the signal on this hardly reaches over 2 bars,its really slow at responding the camera could have been a bit better even if its walkman (2.2x zoom).battery life comes to about 2 days with normal use oh and the keypads just.. just so annoying you press the return button and walkman comes.if you like being annoyed and like charging alot this is the phone 4 u. Overall 5.5 out of 10

its a great phone. it has better things than w810 and previous walkman phones. like 1000 sms memory what i dislike about this phone is keypad specially the round dpad. and right and left buttons. no 3.5 AV jack for headphones. no usb jack (for everything like charges, datacable and headphones to plug in you only have one pop port, in the long run pop port will not work) it doesnt have 2 million colors it doesnt have legendry dedicated fast forward and nd buttons on the keypad layout. no fast forward play pause and rewind buttons on handsfree. you cant make folders to save good sms. if these things were there in w610 this would be the best mobile of the century.

I have problem with my phone but I now suspect that it is a setting. What it is is that I cannot hear anything from the person on calling/being called unless I switch on the speaker (then everyone around hears the conversation). I had the phone back to SE for repair and got it back a few days later it went again. I had the phone replaced and a few days later the new phone does the same. I use the phone with my car's bluetooth handsfree and I am wondering if it something to do with this. Any ideas? Other than this problem I like the phone. Thanks

After buying my phone off PrePayMania, I was excited as it looked awesome. But when I tried the camera (2MP) it had a line going down the middle. Otherwise the camera is excellent. You may not think a line would be annoying, but on every picture ive taken there is this thin black line down the middle. Also, after getting it back after 3 weeks, the problem still wasnt fixed and after a further 1 week, numbers: 2,3,6,9 couldnt be pressed, meaning I couldnt type in someones number. However before these problems occured this phone is great, the walkman is great, and im sure my phone is just a 1 off. I would recommend!!

A good phone, although the keys are a little fiddly, and when texting the no. 4 key can be particularly annoying, but once you get used to it you prefer the smaller keys! The phone is very easy to use and has great settings and options. The camera is good but has a delay taking pictures which can lead to them coming out blurry. This phone is stylish and great value for money, its walkman function is particularly good and has good quality. It is a little to thick for my liking yet is very easy to hold in your hand.

the phones great {4gb memory solt!!!} the pictures on the internet of the phone made me think do i want this as i did not like the styling.soom as i bought it ,it actually look pritty funky and i also did not relize how small and compact it is.i also think 14mm is not to thin but not at all fat.the features are great espally the walkman.nice to see the light/torch on it as its quite handy.i also think the new menu set ups very stylish and is not like nokia menus where its boring icons.they also put feature onit you atually will use. get this phone its better than the k550 as its a walkman and louder musics speaker.only bad point is buttons will take a week to get used to but after that its great had mine a year and its taken some falls and has servived a fall off scaffading great phone for money

After having a Nokia and a Motorola phone which both worked great I was abit sketchy at first about buying a Sony Ericsson. I took a few days to get used to the keys but after those first few days I have not looked back. Getting the phone for 59.99 with a 5 top up voucher from Virgin seems to myself a steal! The camera is first class, I recently went to Morocco with me I had a 8 megapixel digital camera and my Sony Ericsson W610i with it's 2 megapixel camera, Pictures of my son riding a camel took with either camera looked identical. Also the walkman player has quality sound, I'm trying hard to think of any negatives about this phone but I just can't even a year maybe even two years this in my opinion is the best phone for under 60 possibly even under 100. I can't see myself wanting another phone for awhile, A top notch phone from a top notch company. It's a shame I cant score the phone higher than a 5, It deserves a 100!

However one massive problem I had with this phone was twice it had to be sent for repair due to two different technical problems!

Amazing phone, and the found the buttons easy to get used to, old school buttons bow feel like bricks. It looks amazing in the flesh, the chrome buttons a nice touch, with the black against orange looking slick. Nice and slim, AMAZING MP3 player, with album art. Camera is very impressive in the right conditions. The only slight drawback is i have some dust under the screen-anyone know how to get rid of it? Despite this tiny problem, it is an amazing phone, well worth the 80 I spent on it. The headsets brilliant, the battery lasts me about 3 days, and i leave it on all the time, text about 20 times a day, and use the walkman for 1-2 hours daily.Zandro's right, leaves my sisters K750 in the bin. If you have one, you know what I mean, if you don't. go out and GET ONE!!!

My w610i fell into a pond i didnt realise but when i check my pocket it wasnt there, it was in the pond. I took it out opend the case got all the water out left at the back of the computer for bout 3 hours and then on the heater and the next moring it was orking like a charm.

This is my first Sony Ericsson. This phone is brilliant, the features of this phone is good. If you like music then this is the phone for you. it comes with a 512mb memory card which stores alot of music. It is easy to use. the button are little small but you get use to them. The design odf the phone is very nice. The volume is quite loud on the phone. Overall it is an excellent phone.

Just received an unlocked w610i. Have now set it up to send and receive e-mail and connect via WAP dial up (my sim does not support GPRS). Had a D750 previously and this phone is brilliant, only minor quibble is the camera as I can't find a zoom. Anyway the walkman player is great, the screen clear and fresh looking. Would recommend it. Also the phone has great proportions.

Brilliant phone, easy to use and full of features, the camera is superb, best in its class and the music player feature is great! however, the instalation disk that comes with it does not support windows vista but the disc2phone software for music files does work! I would definatly recommend this phone

Ant, when i 1st saw ure review, i said... wow!!! all of that writing? what is it a book? but it was honestly helpful. especially with 'THE' button. i thought sumting was wrong. what i hav a prob with is the battery life, it lasts for like 1 &1/2 days max. guess thats expected with the features included. and i have to be OCNSTANTLY wipin the keypad because finger prints show on it. other than that. i love it 4/5 stars for me!

I had this phone for a couple of days and am exchanging it for another model. Reason being the keys. They are very difficult to deal with. The number 4 key is more or less non-responsive and sometimes when pressing it, because of where the camera key is situated, you end up activatiing the camera in the middle of a text msg!!! I have small hands and even I found the keys impossible, particularly the navigation keys which do not feel nice to use as they dig into your finger. The camera is ok but not great, the W810i has a much better camera. The best feature on this phone is the walkman player, as a music phone this handset does deliver. If you just want to make calls from your phone and listen to some phat beats, get this handset. But if you're text crazy (like myself) this is not the phone for you, purely because of the keys.

Very very good phone. Got used to the keypad quite quickly, decent camera, very good music capabilities. Only problem is it cuts out half the time, with a white screen and then goes back to normal

I absolutely hate this phone! After having the W800i for two years, I thought it was about time for a change. I loved the W800i, so I decided to stick with Sony Ericsson. What a mistake! I had to send the first phone I had back, as the 4 and 6 keys stuck, the second model I now have also has the same problem, as well as intermittent crackling whilest talking on the phone. The battery life is appauling, the W800i would only need chanrging 1-2 times per week, the W600i I have to charge almost daily! The keys (when they work) are fiddly. The camera is absolutely terrible, especially compared to the W800i and the video? Forget it! Oh and to top it all off, the phone is slower than a Granny with a zimmer... stay away from this phone, Thw W800i was WAY better!
