Sony Ericsson Vivaz (review)
Sony Ericsson launches its latest handset - Vivaz
By Mihir Patkar
In a world dominated by Android, iPhone OS and Windows Mobile, it's nice
to see someone bucking the trend. Sony Ericsson's new phone, the Vivaz,
runs on the Symbian S60 5th edition operating system that a lot of Nokia
phones sport; only Sony has thrown in a few tricks of its own to
customise it further.
Powered by a 720MHz processor, the Vivaz has a 3.2-inch resistive
touchscreen that displays 16 million colours at a resolution of 320x620
pixels - and it's all bright and clear thanks to the built-in PoweVR SGX
graphics engine. There's an accelerometer for auto-rotation, handwriting
recognition, and turn-to-mute functionality.
The camera is the big attraction of this handset as Sony has thrown in
an 8-megapixel CMOS sensor, complete with autofocus, LED flash, touch
focus, geo-tagging, face and smile detection. And the best part is that
it can record 720p high-definition video with continuous autofocus, and
comes with video light functionality for illuminating dark shots. What's
more, all of the videos and pictures you shoot and store on microSD card
(up to 16GB) can be viewed directly on a TV screen thanks to the TV-out
There's enough multimedia support onboard here as the device has the
ability to play back all kinds of audio and video formats, but no DivX.
Stereo FM radio is available for those who prefer their tunes over the
air, and there's also a handy 3.5mm audio jack to plug in your own
The phone comes preloaded with apps for YouTube, Facebook, Twitter,
Picasa, Google Maps (with GPS and A-GPS), QuickOffice document reader,
etc. Other features include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP, gesture
control, and 13 hours of talk-time on a single charge of the battery.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is now available in India for Rs. 25,695.
