Sony Ericsson Vivaz 03 500x375 300x258 Sony Ericsson Vivaz Review – 8 Megapixel Camera Phone with s60 5th Edition OSVivaz is a first Symbian phone (s60 5th edition) from Sony Ericsson that allows the user to record high definition videos at 720 pixels with continuous autofocus thanks to its 720 MHz processor. The design of the phone is very contemporary, stylish and beautiful. The handset is completely made up of plastic and it weighs only 96g with a dimension 107 x 51.7 x 12.5 mm.

The display screen measures 3.2 inches and is able to display a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels. The accelerometer sensor of the display automatically rotates the display of the phone when the phone is held in vertical or horizontal direction. It does not have an AMOLED display and it becomes a bit difficult to view the display under direct sunlight.

Above the display screen, you can find the power button, earpiece and secondary video calling camera. Below the display, you can find the send, end and menu buttons. On the left hand side of the phone, you can find the 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB connection port and loudspeaker whereas on the right hand side of the phone, you can find the camera shutter button and volume controller.

At the back side of the phone, you can find the 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash. The camera is the USP of this phone. Without the camera, the phone will appear like any other s60 Symbian phone. The internal memory of the phone is 75 MB and comes with an 8 GB microSD card. The phone easily detects and reads 16 GB memory card.

The operating system is the same that can be found on other Symbian phones like Samsung Omnia HD i8910, Nokia 5530 XpressMusic, Nokia 97 (mini) and Sony Ericsson Satio. When it comes to composing messages or emails on the phone, you can make use of several text input methods like alphanumeric layout, compact and landscape onscreen keyboard and handwriting recognition. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz comes preloaded with features like SMS Preview, YouTube, Facebook and trial version of Quickoffice.

You can connect to the web through 3G (HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2.0Mbps) and Wi-Fi. The browser present on the phone is the same browser that comes bundled with s60 5th edition phones. We recommend you to install Opera Mobile 10 to browse the web. The GPS can be accessed by two navigational apps present on the phone are Google Maps and Wisepilot (trial version).sony ericsson vivaz 3 540x301 300x167 Sony Ericsson Vivaz Review – 8 Megapixel Camera Phone with s60 5th Edition OS
