Metal on the outside, plastic from the inside

The Sony Ericsson T650 will be selling in two distinct color variations - light green and blackblue . The one we got to test is obviously the green one. The T650 has a nice metallic body - exactly as advertised. Make a note here; we'll acquire back to that aspect later on in the review. The handset measures 104 x 46 x 12.5 mm and weighs 95 g which provides for a nice feel when held in hand.

Above the display you can see the speaker in the dead center. The video calls capturing camera is located on its right, while the ambient light sensor is on the left. The TFT display measures 1.9" in diagonal which isn't quite what you'd expect in a higher mid-range tier handset. Just so you acquire a dimensional perspective, the W880 has a 1.8" display, while the K800 sports a 2" one. The manufacturer claims the Sony Ericsson T650 display is mineral-glass covered, which should prevent scratches. The keypad on the T650 has a remarkable styling, the keys are small, and yet comfortable. Most of the Sony Ericsson users out there would be excited to see that Sony Ericsson have ditched the inwell-known navigation joystick and have replaced it with a sleeker D-pad.






Getting into the details

The correct side of the T650 incorporates the usual Fast port used for attaching the charger and all peripherals. The Fast port is getting relocated on the side of increasingly more Sony Ericsson handsets. We suppose that it has something to do with its increased utilize for plugging stereo headset for listening to music.

The bottom part of the T650 sports only a microphone pinhole and holes for attaching a neck or wrist strap. For that purpose you would have to rego the back cover first. The top part of the mobile features the On/Off key and a sliding release key for the back cover. The On/Off key is really minute but that doesn't pose any usability problems.

The left-hand side of the T650 nests the dual volume key and the capturing camera shutter key. They are all made to bldiscontinue seamlessly into the handset design. The slight elevation plus the nice tactile feedback provide for a remarkable user-friendliness of the controls.

The back side of the body has a nice brushed metal finish and the back panel represents one whole piece covering the back entirely. At the bottom you can see the loudspeaker grill. The capturing camera lens and the Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash are located on the top. The capturing camera is advertised as having a 3.2 megapixel resolution but, as with some other Sony Ericsson products, its effective megapixel count is exactly 3.15 megapixels. The lens is located within a bulging black frame, which in our humble thought spoils the sleek looks of the device.
