Sony Ericsson Zylo Review


Welcome to the 2010 Sony Ericsson Zylo review/information page. The SE Zylo is the bigger brother to the basic Spiro.  The most important difference and inclusion is 3G capability.

The Zylo is branded a Walkman phone and so has a fully functional music system.  Apart from that it appears to have all the features of the current W9xx series phones although SE have not said if it will have an A-GPS chip but they have included geo-tagging and Google maps!  Aside from music it has all the communication options that you need in a mobile phone for 2010!

All the latest Sony Ericsson mobile phones use the latest Flash based navigation system and are genuinely decent regardless of model.  The OS is relatively simple and easy to learn and use.  Assuming that competitors phones have the same hardware features the only reason why you’d pick another brand is just based on how it looks and feels and price.

To sum up the Zylo appears to be a very decent presumably mid-range but music focused mobile phone.  The PR images show an old school cassette tape as a animated graphics which the younger crowd will think quite quaint since they have never seen one before!  Should be decent phone.
