Sony Ericsson W660i Review
In a nutshell: This Walkman phone has everything you need from
a music player phone: the latest version of Sony's award-winning Walkman
music player, a built-in FM radio, and a 2 megapixel camera. It also
has the benefit of 3G video calling and comes in a classic slimline
design with an ergonomic keypad and navigation key.
Review: August 2007.
The Sony Ericsson W660i is a nice addition to the Walkman phone range.
It's basically a 3G-enhanced version of the fantastic W610i
with an improved keypad, although the camera isn't as good.
The W660i is a great looker. It has a classic design, with lovely curves,
and is available in two distinctive colour schemes: black or rose red.
The phone is slim (but not superslim) and is a good size and weight
to hold. The W660i has an easy-to-use navigation key and has nicely-sized
tactile keys, which is a relief after so many recent Sony Ericsson phones
have suffered from clunky joysticks or small keys - Sony Ericsson haven't
put a foot wrong with the W660i in terms of design. The display is a
good size and, whilst not as high in resolution as the W880i
or K810i, is typical for this
The W660i has a good quality 2 megapixel camera and a video recording
option. It can't compete with the camera on the high-end K810i, and
is missing autofocus and a camera light. Being 3G, it also supports
Naturally the W660i is equipped with the latest Walkman® player
2.0 and is an excellent music phone. Audio quality is excellent, you
can easily control the music player, creating your own playlists on
the move, and you can now view original album art on the screen as the
music plays. Interfacing with a PC is very straightforward: using the
USB mass storage interface you can simply drag and drop music (and other
media) from the PC to the phone. The memory capacity of the phone is
not as large as we'd have liked - onboard memory is just 16 Mbytes,
which is enough for just a few MP3 tracks, so you'll definitely need
a memory card to make full use of the phone. Memory
cards of up to 1 Gybte are supported (2 Gbytes using a special adapter).
We should also mention that an FM radio is included.
Connectivity via USB and wireless Bluetooth is supported, including
support for a stereo
Bluetooth headset, but there's no support for infrared. With 3G
the phone is permanently connected to the internet, and the phone can
handle web browsing, RSS feeds and picture blogging. Push email is also
In conclusion, the W660i is a great phone. It has everything that the
W610i has to offer (except for
the camera), but with the benefits of 3G and a more conventional keypad.
Features of the Sony Ericsson W660i include:
- 3G video calling
- Video clip recording
- 2 megapixel camera with 2.5x digital zoom
- Display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- Walkman® player 2.0
- FM radio
- MegaBass - enhances bass frequencies
- Polyphonic ringtones / Music Tones
- Sound recorder
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, Push email
- 3D Java games (pre-installed)
- Web browser
- Picture blogging
- RSS feeds
- Animated wallpaper
- Personal organiser functions
- Connectivity: Bluetooth (with support for stereo headset), USB
- Memory: 16 Mbytes plus Memory Stick Micro (M2) support
(up to 1 Gbyte)
- Flight mode
- Vibration alert
- Size: 102 x 46 x 14.5 mm
- Weight: 93g
- Triband (GSM 900, 1800, 1900) plus 3G (UMTS 2100)

I have had this phone for a year maybe? And it is by far the best phone
I have had. It is trusty, hard wearing and reliable. I can honestly
say I have never had a problem. The Keyboard is brilliant, although
your fingers do ache after a while- but I suspect that this is the same
with any phone. The music player is superb and although the camera isn't
the best, it's still good quality. The Internet is good on it, But I
guess that depends on your network. I would definately reccomend this
phone to everybody and anybody, it is truly brilliant.

Been using this for last 1 year.It is generally a good phone with few
hitches. Its too small and suitable only for twiggy fingers.That makes
my texting a nightmare and hurts my distal finger joints as I have to
do it with nails!!!. Call accept and Call End buttons are on the wafer
thin rim surrounding other buttons like walkman or return button and
I haven't yet learned how to avoid hitting unwanted buttons while accepting
or rejecting the call.I think this is a feature of all Sony sets.(I
recently saw their T303 with dedicated buttons ) Overall a reliable,durable
and stable phone with poor ergonomics.

WOW.... There's hardly anything to say about this phone. The review
at the top of this page says it all. It is just wonderful. Amazing clarity,
great sound, supercool style. Its just a perfect 10 on 10 phone. When
I made up my mind to pick up a Sony Ericsson, I was a little apprehensive
about the battery life that I would have to sacrifice for the brilliant
sound and display quality. But this phone has made my apprehension meaningless.
2 weeks, that I've bought it, I've put it to charge just 4 times. An
average of once in 3.5 days. (Considering the number of hours I listen
to music & FM and am talking on the phone) Isn't that superb? Well,
there's nothing else one can say about the other features in the phone,
but - flawless. I would recommend this one to anybody. Just fantastic.
Great going, Sony Ericsson!!!

has a good layout and everything is quite self explanatory. Battery
life is good, music player is great, camera is ok (although not as good

I bought SE660i just yesterday and so far I love it! I couldnt choose
between this cell and Samsung L-760 but eventually I think I made a
good choice. This is my econd Ericsson, the first one was very simple
Z3301 but I was veryy happy with it, although Ericssons have generally
the tendency to freeze. W6601 looks lovely and smart -especially the
red one-so it's perfect for a woman. The quality of music is excellent,
you can put around 500 files in it. The camera is not bad, however if
you are hoping to take perfect photos you may be disappointed coz the
photos are just ok. There is no flash so the pics taken indoors are
average. It's not a problem for me, though coz the camera wasn't a priority.
The only minus is the lack of shutter in a camera. But who cares about
one tiny minus when there are so many pluses:)

so classic and i wont get tired of looking at it. my friends have also
said that it looks great. my mom has also been won over. she agrees
it looks good. yes! the gold lining looks awesome and it really looks
elegant. looks super classic. i have had this phone for around a week
and mine is black in color. i bought this phone because of the reviews
i read here. so far it has not disappointed me. yes the camera isn't
as perfect but i was prepared for it. the keypad is a little tough so
i needed a little time to get used to it. the music is great. the handset
that comes along with it is really cool. it eliminates other background
noises so you can really listen to your music. i have also read from
other users that there is no indication of the number of characters
you have already typed (sms). but once it exceeds the no. of characters
of the first sms, SMS 2 will appear. so you'll know that you're on to
the second sms. so there's not much of a problem there. so i would definitely
recommend this phone. a looker and great music.

This is not a phone I would recommend to anyone. Nor would I recommend
Sony Ericsson as a phone manufacturer. The instructions that came with
the phone were poor-quality: I had to take it back to the shop to have
the SIM card fitted. The charger supplied with the phone turned out
to be broken, and the shop told me that Sony Ericsson don't cover the
charger in their warranty on the phone: the shop let me have one of
the chargers they use because I'd already complained about the SIM card.
The latest touch of bad design: you can't use it while it's charging.
I'm serious: all you can see while it's charging is a message saying
that it's charging. This is the worst phone I've ever bought, and I'd
be deeply reluctant to buy another Sony Ericsson phone given their attitude

Cool phone, nothing fancy or over the top but does everything you want
it to do to a very decent standard. The walkman speakers probably should
have been placed somewhere else rather than the back of the phone because
if you wish to listen to the walkman you need to turn the phone face
down so the speakers aren't muffled but it's not a huge problem. Only
real gripe with the phone would be the camera quality, my previous two
phones were the K800i and Nokia N73 so i knew the camera was never going
to live up to those phones but i never expected it to be quite this
bad, there is almost no point in even including a camera if it can't
take halfway decent photos...i guess its just lucky i don't use the
camera that much, if i want decent photos i use my friends K800i and
send them to my phone

I've always been a Nokia boy. Through and through. I was on T mobile,
and their network coverage is non existant (can you believe that, especially
as I live in London?) So I decided to go back to Orange (my Orange pay
as you go has excellent coverage in my house- and yes, we're still talking
about London). But I wasn't sure about those Nokia designs. To be honest
(and may my tongue turn black for saying it) I hate the new designs
of all Nokias, but I love the user interface- hence the reason why I
was a Nokia boy. The chap from Orange recommended this phone to me after
I told him I didn't think to any of the Nokias on offer, and I was a
bit daunted because I've never used Sony. I can truthly say I will NEVER
go back to Nokia, this phone has great battery life, the screen is big
(bigger than my Nokia 8850 and 6108), great feel, awesome colour coordination
(black and champagne gold). The only downer I have is that it's getting
used to pressing the "hash" key to enter a space and I have to press
the "star" button to get high or lower case characters when using the
T9 for texting- as I am a squishy texter. Can I enter 6 stars???

Well I sepnt ages looking at this website and others when I was deciding
which phone to get. I was getting a phone on 3 so my choice was limited,
but this was one of the choices. The phone is pretty good all round,
reliable, good battery life, excllent ,music player. U can drag and
drop files straight to the memory card so you don't have to mess about
with sony's software; although transferring files this way means that
it only seems to play Mp3 and not WMA. Cons - Slightly small keys, 2MP
camera with no flash. Pros - Good battery life, good size, great music

I recently upgraded from the Sony Ericsson k610i to the W660i and am
quite satisfied with my new phone. The radio is nice to have and extra
memory (compared to my k610i) is another welcome bonus. The Sony Ericsson
navigation is easy to use and caters for all needs. I certainly recommend

I just got this phone, and i'm impressed with it since its my first
sony eric. phone since the t660i or something along the lines of that.
good music player etc. all the things you would associate with a sony
eric. i'm just dissapointed about the fact music transfer is slow if
you connect via usb cable, or maybe its a problem with my pc, but besides

I have only had ths phone for 2 days so these are my initial thoughts/
first impressions. I upgraded from the W810i and I prefer that phone
to this W660i (so far). The W660i is a little too slim for me because
I have big hands, and I preferred the more chunky W810i as it was easier
to hold on to. This new phone is a bit slippy and I think I could easily
drop it. Also, this one is heavier than the W810i. Annoyingly I had
to buy another 4 gig memory card because my old one doesn't fit this
phone. Although it does come with a 512mb thats not really enough for
a decent amount of tunes. I do not like the colour of this phone - well
the black is ok, but then it has these very naff gold edgings that are
a bit too bling bling for my humble tastes. It reminds me of a cheap
1980s cigarette lighter thats trying to look expensive. On the plus
side: I like the keypad on this phone because it lights up much better
and is more visible for usage than the previous phone which I always
struggled with seeing properly. The music player doesnt seem to be any
different as far as quality of sound goes, and in fact I think the loud
speaker on the W810i is just slightly better. The walkman menu is better
on this phone, and it also shows the album artwork, but its so tiny
I don't really see the point in it.

this phone is good but when you are watching videos the moment you mute
it the light effects comes out and you have to go to the walkman menu
to remove it troublesome other than that it is a good phone

I upgraded to this handset a couple of days ago but I'm sending it back!
Before this I had the W880i, which wasn't that good either, but I found
this one uncomfortable to hold, the screen wasn't a good size and the
features weren't much different from other Walkman handsets I've used
in the past. I would recommend Sony Ericssons, but not this one.

Just bought this phone yesterday and am already in love with it, I havent
even started my contract yet! Have been constantly playing around with
it. The phone came with a 512 MB memory card and can store loads of
music on, which, by the way, plays excellently! I recently had a flip
phone which decided to break in half not long ago and have had to use
my old brick of a phone, however, this restored my confidence in phones
that dont have any flip or slide mechanisms! The buttons are easily
controlled and the screen size is perfect. So far I am very happy! I
highly recommend this phone!
