    Re: Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Android Smartphone


    Live with Walkman can be placed in the same category as the family Xperia Mini: small, compact and very well assembled. The back cover is slightly rubberized and perfectly set. The volume keys are excellent, not so good that the front button is slightly loosened during our test. Perfect instead of the buttons on top of the device: Walkman and on / off. The TFT screen is not equipped with Bravia technology but is still very bright and has excellent color rendering. The touchscreen is great, although the brightness under the direct sunlight is limited. The design of the Sony Ericsson Live is characterized by smooth lines, glossy finish and mineral glass display. The phone has a screen 3.2 "and a processor 1 GHz front-facing camera allows you to make video calls with Skype, while the AF camera 5 megapixels with autofocus, flash and face detection, you can record video HD 720p.

    The dedicated Walkman button allows instant access to music player and, through integration with Facebook, you can express your "like", share and search content. The Infinite button, used in the music player allows users to instantly access the new content of their favorite artists, including music videos, texts and information and research service offers music and video content and xLOUD Sony technology improves the sound output.

    Performance & Multimedia Support

    The components of this device are mid-range and still find it surprising in such a small device. 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and an excellent camera 5Megapixel speaker who will be remembered in the annals of mobile telephony. It 'so powerful that we never managed to keep the volume up during daily use. It 'good to recall that in this case is not synonymous with high volume distortion: the sound is always clean. The internal memory is the only downside: only 320MB.

    Succeed with the 5-megapixel camera including auto focus to mid-range good memories. Difficulties had a small camera at close range: 15 cm as you come closer to a subject hardly approached. In normal mode, the images were sharp to the edge. Practical for group photos, you can activate the smile. This guarantees that no one in the photo looks crotchety.

    Also uses the automatic scene detection, which ensures the right exposure settings for Business (document), portraits and landscapes. An LED flash makes even night shots, but they are marked by a distinct noise. Film images are at 720, but recorded no stereo sound. The results are good, the microphone picks up even quiet sounds good to still be heard. Skype chat is possible if the front camera with VGA resolution is enabled.

    Of particular interest are the ions on the radio music Walkman Smartphone. If a song is in the music player, you can press the "infinite-key. Immediately opens a drop-down menu, giving you more about the song - on Wikipedia, YouTube or Google. To use this option, however, recommended that a data contract, as further information will be downloaded over the Internet. Bottom right of the player is shown a "Like" icon. If you press it, Facebook appears on the message that you are listening to this song. Depending on your mood you can even post the appropriate comment to this song. And finally the music and video services and video Music Unlimited from Sony available. They also offer music and movie lovers are currently over seven million songs and thousands of movies from the Sony program to buy for. Sony xLOUD-technology ensures crisp sound, so you can listen to good music without headphones.

    Operating System and Apps

    Unlike other Sony Ericsson smartphones (except for Xperia Arc D ), this live version of the software already has the Sony Ericsson introduces interesting new features like the ability to make screenshots by holding down the off button and the new software 3D panoramic photos (of course you need a 3D TV for their vision). The interface is the same as the Xperia Mini and Mini Pro, with the four "bubbles" at the corners to save your favorite applications. This will hide if covered by a widget. Sadly, there is a video player other than the gallery of Android, but it compensates with the excellent Walkman music player that Sony Ericsson has pre-installed in this Smartphone. Also available TrackID to recognize the titles of tracks that we are listening.


    But what is missing the hardware, the software should depend, in addition the Walkman button, which allows direct access to the library, Sony promises xLOUD play the music without distortion even at extreme volumes. So they tell their friends, the same can be dovetailed with Sony Ericsson Walkman live with Facebook. The alternatives Xperia Mini and Mini Pro are definitely to be considered (as the hardware slightly higher), but this remains an absolute Live a great device for music on the move.

    As usual, Sony Ericsson focuses on Live with Walkman on the multimedia capabilities of the device. This allows users to reach the media player in the current Android version 2.3 on its own hardware button. The Live with the Walkman music player in the fore at least a little disappointed. Because basically it is a slightly modified version of the well with other Sony Ericsson smartphones coming to use music player software. After all, it can be accessed via a button on the home screen as well as a physical button on the upper side of the case directly. The supplied headphones are qualitatively well above those of other phones that site but could not be verified.
