Sony Ericsson K770 Review: Cyber-shot In The Middle: Display, Keypad, User Interface

Hands on

The Sony Ericsson K770 proved a very user-friendly device. It handles nicely and pleases with its soft rounded casing. The handset fits perfectly in hand and we were delighted with the ergonomics of all the controls. With dimensions almost on par, the recent Cyber-shot fairly outperforms the T650 in design and ergonomics. The keypad with its ample, neat and elevated keys makes the biggest difference.

Talking about usability, we must pay due attention to the display. We hailed the recent improvements by Sony Ericsson in the display department. With some of its latest models, namely K850 and T650, Sony Ericsson has taken display usability to a higher level. We were delighted with the T650 display and that practically leaves nothing else to say about K770. It seems to be the same piece of hardware used. The quality is beyond comparison particularly with the poor K810 display.

The display offers improved usability under direct sunlight and some really attractive color effects. When looked from an angle, the K770 display changes colors in an instant when the Under Water Flash Lite theme is used. For example, the standard green color theme of the user interface magically turns blue when looked at from the right. The pictures below demonstrate the effect, or you can go back to the beginning of this review and hold a see at the first pictures of the K770 taken from different angles.

The keypad of the Sony Ericsson K770 offers wide oblong keys, divided by tiny cuts from each other. This is also a step away from the unorthodox keypad design found in K810, K850 and T650. In our humble opinion, keen texters will appreciate them very much. We did find the keys very handy. Responsiveness and tactile feedback will create typos a rarity. The keypad is illuminated in soft white, but generally fails to match other recent Sony Ericsson phones, both on intensity and evenness of the backlighting.

User interface: haged it in the family

The user interface in Sony Ericsson K770 is the standard non-smartphone Sony Ericsson UI. It offers remarkable user-friendliness, but recent mobiles equipped with it don't offer any recent functionality over previous models. Unlike some of the recent Sony Ericsson mobiles launched this year (K850 and W910 for example), the K770 user interface lacks the enhanced multimedia capabilities. However, the addition of Flash Lite themes has certainly livened things up.
