Sony Ericsson Yari Review


Welcome to the Sony Ericsson Yari review.

Welcome to the Sony Ericsson Yari review/information page.  The Yari is another slider phone from SE and we can not understand why you’d pick this one ahead of ‘the other’ slider the Hazel.  We assume that it was released as a stop gap measure until the Hazel was finally relased!  It seems like a entirely regular mobile 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.

The PR says that it is a gaming centric mobile phone with motion sensitive games and pedometer for walking/running.  Apart from that there does not seem to be any exceptional about the phone.  We reckon a perfectly acceptable mid-range mobile phone but you really need to standout with something more these days.  Perhaps a more attractive design?
