Sony Ericsson Zylo review: Walkman rewind

30 July 2010
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...

vikramjeet , 08 Aug 2011sir zylo has no mega bass( which is the soul of music lovers). ... morehello dude!! theres no need to put megabass to this phone because it already have clear bass which is better because it plays bass without any distortions unlike megabass..

hope that helps!

I must say that this phone is the reborn of W705...
Best audio quality even some smartphone don't have it...
Yes,it's a "Sexy and Mid size music slider"...not so small...
default headset is pretty junk...I mean that's not A headset...that's a garbage...I'm now using HPM-70
A Must have phone for those who needs music in soul...
use *.Flac for the best quality (this is the main aim I have this phone)
what type of other phone that have Flac support???


I have Nokia N95, and recent buy Sony Ericsson Zylo.
Picture quality of Sony Ericsson Zylo(3.2mp)is far better then Nokia N95(5mp). Also sound quality of Sony Ericsson Zylo is far better then Nokia N95 and bass is more powerful but softness then Nokia N95.

Zylo Camera Quality Review:

Based on personal experiences Camera quality is very good in day light.In dark conditions u can still switch to "Night Mode" for better quality.

Ok Now the most important point:

The people who are complaining about the camera quality i would like to give u a hint.

This Zylo captures the image 2,3 seconds after we press the key.So if u hold the phone firm in that period(avoiding minor shakes) definitely the picture should be in very good quality.
Just try that. If u are not sure u also can use the "self timer" and see :)

I found the best video playback settings for my Zylo

Here im sharing :)

Use: Total Video Converter
(E.M. Total Video Converter Version 3.21 registered)

Select: MP4 > AVC H264 mp4 (Simply drag and drop the video u wanna convert and u will be prompted to select the format)

Settings:Video resize:320*240
FrameRate:30fps (choose under custom)
Additional info: you can use the "crop" feature in order to get rid of black bars of the videos
And u dont need to change the "Audio Settings": keep the default settings as it is
The source videos i tested were in flv and mp4 formats which i simply downloaded from youtube.Anyway make sure the quality of the source video is good

drop me an email or ask here if u still hv any probs :)
