Welcome to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness review/information page. The SE Pureness is clearly a ‘glamour’ phone featuring the first transparent display screen! It only has a mono-chrome scratch resistant screen but the materials and build make this a minimalist and very stylish cell phone.
We haven’t managed to get our hands on a real one yet so this page is ‘reserved’ for the full review when that happens. So until then here are our comments.
As a result of the unique screen it is not loaded with features, it doesn’t even have a camera but it does have all the latest messaging and communication options. Of course it would work best for voice, SMS and emails due to the screen. Mind you with fast internet download and upload capability it would make a flashy internet modem.
We genuinely find the Sony Ericsson Pureness appealing because of its unique design. This is one of those rare phones that show design triumphs over functionality (We also liked the Nokia 7280 for the same reason) Furthermore these days it is common to have see people with at least two phones so would would work really well as the talk and text only phone when you want to impress. We genuinely hope the price isn’t too high.
