"White screen"

The good: Easy to use. A fun phone. I loved the phone so much my husband and daughter got one. The bad: All three of us over time experienced the white screen on our cell phones. Summary: The phone is great while it last, but the screen goes out over time.

"Horrible"

The good: Great design The bad: Flawed model Summary: I loved this phone except for the fact that it stoped working a few months after purchase. Had it replaced twice under warranty and both times the brand new phone just stopped working randomly on its own. Screen goes white and after a few days goes black and is non responsive. AT&T/Cingular stores did not take it back and it had to be exchanged online. As a matter of fact a store rep told me that this model is known to have problems and... more...

"Good battery life, unreliable software, camera button is crazy"

The good: The battery life is impressive. Usually pairs with my Bluetooth headset. The bad: Software crashes too often. Does not always ring when receiving a call. Camera takes pictures of my pocket. Summary: I like the phone when it works, which is most of the time. The battery life is good. However, the software crashes pretty often -- generally when taking a call or when sending a text message. And, the phone often decides not to ring, so I miss calls. The external camera button is... more...

"stinks"

The good: lots of features, voice activated calling, camera/video phone, web browser, mp3 ringtones The bad: not a durable phone, difficult interface when compared to my motorola 720... Summary: This phone is horrible!!! The first problem I had with it was taking pictures of the inside of my pocket. I read the entire manual and found nothing about a key lock on the phone to keep this problem from happening. Cingular couldn't help me figure out how to fix the problem either. I tried to take... more...

"Great phone....HUGE problems"

The good: a lot of different features including video camera and bluetooth, can record own ringtones and conversations. Extremely long battery life. good call quality. extra features are easy to find. The bad: Breaks extremely easy. pictures from camera can come out grainy. Summary: I got my phone before I came back to school in August. I had it maybe two months and it started acting crazy. Eventually it just cut off on me. I tried to turn it on, it would stay on for about 10 minutes just for... more...

"Sony Ericsson z520a"

The good: call quality, customizable ringtones, external screen, bluetooth, "calls" list accessible from main screen, out-of-the-way internet button--prevents you from accidentally connecting to costly services The bad: no send/end buttons, no way to change timeout on internal display, speaker on back side, battery cover difficult to remove Summary: I have very much enjoyed using my T610 for years (via T-Mobile US), but I wanted to upgrade to better PIM support.

"Sony Ericsson Z250a"

The good: Great features such as video camera. The bad: Not a very good battery. Summary: I really like the format of the phone, it is very easy to use. I also like being able to record ringtones and send videos on my phone. The only bad thing about the phone is the battery,I had to replace it.

"Great Phone, Full of Features"

The good: Video Camera, Ease of File Transfer via Bluetooth, and battery life is exceptional. The bad: poor quality still camera. only 2x magnification, not 4x as described on camera. Summary: Great overall phone for people who want a cell phone, but only a few extras. This phone has great reception in rural areas, but lacks in the image quality department. File transfering via bluetooth is outstanding.

"Good Phone"

The good: lots of toys included The bad: bad camera and camera button can be turned on accidentlly Summary: I like the size of this phone and most of the extras that were included. The Sony Erissson Z520a is a pretty nice phone, good sound, lots of ringtones included and some games to keep you occupied. The only downfall I have found is the camera it takes lousy pictures and video though the sound is pretty good. Overall it's a pretty good phone.

"Great Phone - Lots of gadgets"

The good: Bluetooth friendly - can be synced up to any bluetooth based technology... Loves the Ibook. Pic and video, speakerphone, games and music The bad: poor reception Summary: The SonyEricsson Z520a is a good phone with fair pic and video quality (for a phone...), but the reception issues in having the antenna built into the place you put your hand when using is very annoying. If you plan on using your Bluetooth, this is a great item.

"Sony Ericsson 520a"

The good: Phone is very light and easy to use. It has all of the necessary key features and lots of extras. The bad: External camera button is a pain because I am always taking pictures of the inside of my pocket or purse that I have to delete. The speaker phone feature is useless because you have to leave the phone open. There is absolutely no way to close the phone and keep talking. I have been unable to find a replacement charger in common places like Target and Wal-Mart, this is very... more...

"Sony Ericsson Cell Phone"

The good: Compact, durable, loud volume, camera phone, videos, lighted key pad, several different ring tones and effects come programmed on the phone already, and it's an overall easy phone to operate. The bad: No real instructions on how to change the battery cover and face place that they send you (comes with blue and gray.) Summary: I've been very happy with my cell phone. I did have to return it after 5 days of use because it stopped working. Wouldn't turn on, charge, or respond in any... more...
