Sony Ericsson K770 Review: Cyber-shot In The Middle

By 08:12 Sun, 08 Aug 2021 Comments


Cyber-shot branded phones have been keeping us busy lately. Just as we gave you the 5-megapixel K850, the exciting recent recruit Sony Ericsson K770 is on hand. Now, if K850 is the recent star on the Cyber-shot team, the Sony Ericsson K770 is the correct reinforcement in the midfield. New launches are not always about stunning upgrades in functionality. Design and ease of utilize are equally important, especially if trying to cater to different tastes and budgets. Slick and refined, the K770 easily stands out in the Cyber-shot crowd. The recent phone is an attempt to build upon the design of Sony Ericsson T650. Sony Ericsson K770 packs the fine recent stuff - 3G, TFT display with QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution, stereo Bluetooth, Frequency Modulation (FM) radio, MP3/MPEG4 player, fine 3-megapixel camera. All that with the neat elegance of a bar-shaped handset measuring 14.5 mm in thickness. How fine it is in practice is namely our game, so bear with us as we explore the recent Cyber-shot contender.

The looks

The Sony Ericsson K770 will be available in three color variations - Truffle Brown, Ultra Violet and the recently added Sandy Beige. The one we got to test is obviously the brown one. The K770 has a plastic body, but musters a more refined look. The handset measures 105 x 47 x 14.5 mm and weighs 95 g and is a pleasure to hold. Those are almost equal to the slim T650, which measures 12.5 mm, save the protruded capturing camera lens.

Sony Ericsson K770 and T650: Cyber-shot and T-Series stepbrothers in design

The TFT display measures 1.9" in diagonal. Just so you acquire a dimensional perspective, the K810 has a 2" display, while the K850 sports a 2.2" one. Above the display you can see the speaker dead center. The video calls capturing camera is located on its right, while the ambient light sensor is on the left. 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. The navigation pad of the K770 is even handier compared to our favoiurite D-pad of T650. The keypad has remarkable styling and that's where the key incompatibility lies. The keys are large and very comfortable for typing, incorrect keypresses are virtually impossible.






Getting into the details

Design and ease of utilize are equally important, especially if trying to cater to different tastes and budgets. Slick and refined, the K770 easily stands out in the Cyber-shot crowd. The recent phone is an attempt to build upon the design of Sony Ericsson T650.
