With its impressive slimline appearance and long list of features, Sony Ericsson expect the Vivaz to be a successful handset if recent UK marketing efforts are anything to go by. This is the kind of phone that will appeal to almost everyone on some level or other. Looking at the spec list it is clear that the Vivaz is geared towards media functions. A versatile media player, a stunning 8.1 mega pixel camera, an HD display are sure to impress gadget freaks and tech-savvy users.

Users are kept entertained by the stereo FM radio player, pre-installed and downloadable games and the versatile media player which can play many different types of music and video file formats. Facebook and Twitter applications allow users to instantly update their status and stay connected with friends and family on the move. A document reader and voice memo recorder cater to the needs of business users. MP3 files can be assigned as ringtones allowing a degree of customisation.

As mentioned, the built in camera boasts a whopping 8.1 mega pixels. Therefore, the quality of the resulting photos is simply stunning. With HD display, these photos can be enjoyed by the world as they can be directly uploaded to Picasa, and videos to YouTube thanks to dedicated applications. Video is shot in 720p quality at 24 frames per second, and offers an exciting alternative to taking still images.

As expected of a premium smart phone of this calibre, the Vivaz provides super fast internet access. This is primarily thanks to HSDPA at 10.2 megabytes per seconds in areas covered by 3G. A faster connection can be attained in areas where a signal from a wireless internet router can be detected. This is because of built in Wi-Fi technology, which allows an enhanced browsing experience.

The Vivaz is a slimline and stylish handset. It is available in a range of exciting and bold colours, so not only does it appeal to techno buffs, but also to style conscious users who view their phone as a fashion statement.

Plenty of music tracks and video files can be housed within the Vivaz. Internal storage is 75 MB; however, the micro SD slot has a pre-installed 8 GB memory card, which is expandable up to 16 GB. The phonebook allows numerous contacts to be stored, whilst the Photocall feature allows a photo to be assigned to each contact which is then displayed whenever that person is in contact.

The Vivaz utilises a 3.2 inch TFT resistive touch screen for the navigation of menus and the user interface. The display of the on screen content is superb thanks to the ability to display up to 16M colours within a pixel layout of 360x640. The Vivaz is also light weight, so is an unobtrusive phone to carry in your pocket. This also makes it a pleasure to use on the move.

To sum up the Vivaz in one word, or even one sentence would be very difficult. The imminent popularity of the handset looks set to do all the talking, as if the impressive spec list and great design were not enough.
