An ultra responsive, very sleek and highly desirable phone — The Sony Ericson Vivaz provides its users with an 8.1 mega pixel camera with smile detection, GPS and quick and easy connection to there favourite websites all in HD quality.

Vivaz comes with Symbian OS in it with a handful of connectivity features. The sleek and stylish make of the gadget makes it more mobile and appealing. Moreover, the handset offers neat and functional menu screens (however the sub-menus can sometimes appear a little too laden with options). A way of overcoming this is to take advantage of the customizable home screen. The home screen features five widget tabs which you can assign to your favorite functions, i.e social networking sites. And yes, Vivaz is also fully compatible with YouTube.

What’s in Sony Ericsson Vivaz?

– Design: Buttons on the front of the mobile constitutes one traditional Start call and End call with a Menu button in the middle. On the left, there is a micro-USB port which connects to the charger with 3.5mm Jack for audio. The device comes with 75mb internal memory. And can be powered up by an 8GB microSD card which can be found on the back of battery cover. The lens is not with a cover on it. So, next time you park your car don’t keep the keys in the same pocket in which you have this gadget 🙂

– Camera: Vivaz comes with an 8 MP camera with a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. This camera is designed complicated enough to accomodate some awesome features in it; auto focus, LED flash, geo tagging, video calling, smile detection and touch focus.

– Music player: Sony has been famous for its unbeaten sound clarity. This time, the sound is even better. Vivaz includes an amazing music player with dedicated touch buttons on the home screen. What format of Audio and Video files does vivaz support? You name a format and Vivaz plays it; MP3, WMA, WAV, RA, AAC, M4A, WMV, RV, MP4, 3GP video player. With a huge memory space to engulf a lot of stuff, 3.5mm jack makes Vivaz nicer than its competitors.

– Performance: Vivaz powered with 1,200mAh lithium-polymer battery can give 13 hours of talktime on 2g and 18 hours standby. Sound output is enhanced when the 3.5mm Jack is used instead of the external speakers.

On a closing note, this gadget (Sony Ericsson Vivaz) is good. But… Yeah, a but; even superheroes come with a weak point. Vivaz is no exception. It’s slippery, Camera lens are exposed, non-front facing cameras for video calls (Who said iPhone 4 was not famous?), no DivX support out of the box. But, I do feel, this gadget would come across these barriers to shine high.
