Sony Ericsson Zylo Review: Walkman Rewind

By 07:04 Tue, 10 Aug 2021 Comments


A small and sexy music slider – that’s what the Zylo is. Nothing more, nothing less. Sony Ericsson are probably hoping to start bringing up the next generation of loyal users. You know, give a kid a walkman and they will be coming back for more. The Zylo has the catchy beat and the fine looks – and it’s got the social bug. Music and social networking are perhaps top of the young user’s list of needs and the Zylo meets them at a canter.

But besides that, Zylo is a phone for the brokenhearted. A thing to assist you remember. And we need to give it to Walkman phones – there is much to recall fondly. Whether Sony Ericsson are about to breathe recent life into the W-brand or just shaking the dust off an recent prototype that never got into production, the Zylo deserves credit for keeping the Walkman spirit alive.

The Sony Ericsson Zylo is a cheap but stylish slider with a Walkman badge. It comes with quick HSPA support, but this is all the high-discontinue connectivity you could expect. There are no premium features such as Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and GPS. What puts an upsetting question imprint on the whole package is the absence of a 3.5mm audio jack. It’s a cheap phone alright, and we know better than expect a proper audio plug in a Walkman. Doesn’t create sense but that’s how it is. Out of all W-line phones, there’re only two exceptions: the premium W995 and the dirty-cheap Spiro.

The latest feature phones by Sony Ericsson are keen to treat users to remarkable social networking integration. The Zylo is no exception here. It gives you all the social stuff correct on the homeclassy screen with a solid widacquire set running live updates.

The Sony Ericsson Zylo is an excellent small Walkman that’s very easy to like. It is a start-up package, most likely someone’s first phone. And Sony Ericsson want to give the low discontinue a honest try it seems. That’s where Walkman might create sense. They’re giving users something with personality and pedigree to consider against cheap touchscreen.
