Sony Ericsson T707 is a fashion oriented device radiated style and glamour. It’s all about design but not the trendy one, perhaps many of you may think of the HTC Diamond2, LG Prada II, Samsung S8003 Jet…top of the range pricy handsets. Things to be difference with T707 here, target at the audiences who need a phone that is easy to use, but with chic as well in a budget price.
It comes with a battery, a charger, a handsfree and a user’s guide.
It surely an eye catcher. The two circular elements backlight in soft white when the call incoming. It comes in three colors; Mysterious Black, Spring Rose and Lucid Blue. All feel like a lovely toy for ladies. It is sleek and shiny but easy to catch the fingerprints.
Take a look on inside. The Blue one is much more eye catching between the other two. The display here is 2.2”only, and the frame around it makes it looks even smaller.
Actually T707 flip opening mechanism is quite smooth. But it will be perfect to be springier.
The keypad is flat and the spacing between keys is moderate. The texture of super fine grooves provides a very firm grip. Look! It is so stylish especially the rainbow D-pad. (Love it so much!)
The back of the device is made of matte plastic. Feel nice and rubbery. The sleek front is really matched with the back. Also, it features the Sony Ericsson logo and the loudspeaker as some other Sony Ericsson phones.
Under the T707 back cover there’s nothing surprising- battery, the SIM and M2 memory card slot. But you don’t need to remover the battery to insert the memory card with it.
The external display inside the large semi-circle is not very big with 1.1” only and is just monochrome, shows information about the time, battery status, signal strength and missed events. The 3.2 MP camera is located at the top.
The volume rocker and the memory card slot indication icon on the right. T707 is no more than one mm thicker than most other clamshells as it is in 14.1mm thick. Very handy and comfortable to hold.
The small circular element at the right side of the two semi-circles can be backlight in a choice of five different colors and these personalize pulsating light flashes depending on who is calling. Well~ the rainbow D-pad can be lighted up by the reflection of the light outside, don’t need any backlights to make it shiny. So nice!
There are four preinstalled themes: Clarity, Dandelion, Forest tale, and Pink lilac. Pink lilac here. Neat and clean.
It also features gesture control as you can wave your hand over the screen to mute calls or alarm. (Like the one in Sony Ericsson W380).You can customize the theme to your individual taste. It also changes from day into evening, which is perfect to match with everything from pure whites to a little black.

ACER F900 Unboxing Pictures & Review
Within the box are the F900 phone, the additional stylus, a battery, a charger, a data cable, a handsfree set and a user’s guide.
The gadget has a 3.8” monitor which is among the most humongous in a handset we have seen. It resembles HTC Touch HD who looks a bit like LG Viewty Smart. Let’s admit it, there isn’t a lot of room for phones with a bigger-than-3-inch screen to be different. Only two keys remain on the front plain – the windows key and the back key. The geometric design is simplistic enough to my liking and with thickness of 12.9mm, it does look compactly smart.
The power button is relocated on the left side of the phone (which I think is a bit unnecessary coz the only thing that the repositioning achieves is to make the lefthander feel bad.)
On the right side you see the MicroSD slot and the volume control.
You have got a speaker here on top juxtaposed with the letters GPS. (a GPS speakerphone!?)
The plastic case at the back is not so much my cup of tea. It reminds me of a geeky computing device from Cold War era more than a chic communicating handset to date. The 3.2 megapixel camera is a bit below par. (It’s not supposed to be a hipster phone perhaps)
You have to click the red safety lock to release the battery and put the lid back on.
F900 is operating on Windows Mobile 6.1 professional and a 533 MHz processor. It is a guarantee of stability and speed.
Google Maps application is on board with the latest Google latitude.
Here are the applications from settings. Pretty user-friendly eh?
Acer F900 has found its niche in putting forward a smart phone within such a comparatively low price range. It’s functional: Windows Mobile 6.1 providing a smooth operation, WiFi, GPS and HSDPA connectivity, 3.8 inch display that shows exhilarating images. Nothing too flashy and gimmicky.
