Music-focussed mobile impresses with camera

The Sony Ericsson W595 is also available now

Consumers recycling mobile phones for a low-cost music focussed handset may get more than they bargain for with the Sony Ericsson W205, if one expert is to be believed.

According to Sandra Vogel in a recent article for Trusted Reviews, the device is the latest budget entry into the manufacturer's Walkman-branded series, but is without many of the "bells and whistles" of its siblings.

However, she goes on to say that despite this - and the fact that the W205 is primarily an audio-focussed model - the integrated 1.3-megapixel camera is impressive.

Ms Vogel says the usability of the device is not in the same league as the W595, but overall "this is much of a problem", while the quality of the snapper is "pretty good", with colours that are "really quite sharp".

The Sony Ericsson W205 is available on Vodafone's pay-as-you-go packages for £40 or sim-free with a price tag of around £99.99.

Previously, the reviewer considered the pros and cons of the aforementioned W595 model and concluded it was "a very nicely built handset with a strong range of features".
