Sony Ericcson 200i – The Low Cost Basic Mobile Phone

Dated-10 Mar 2013 

Most of the models promoted by Sony Ericsson generally have simple looks. A little heavier than the normal ones, these models however are really good in their performance. So, when it comes to rough and tough mobiles with good performance and almost no servicing, I suggest the name of Sony Ericcson phones after Nokia.

Sony Ericsson 2001, just like its predecessors have a simple looks, which means no flashy looks. Coming to the basics, this model has a large keypad, giving you a feeling of a computer keypad. To make things easier for the user, it has shortcut keys and a single icon for navigational menu. The screen itself is quite wide with 128*128 pixels and 65,536 colors. To add to the beauty of the screen Sony has added some picture wallpapers which are really cute to be added for display from other mobiles.

It has GPRS and GSM of 900/1800 band which gives it quite good connectivity. It gives you a talk time of upto 8 hrs and a standby time of 300 hours. However, it does not give video call facility. For sending message you can either use SMS or MMS. MMS includes sending pictures, text and sound. It has polyphonic ringtones for setting up the rings, a speakerphone to listen to the music

It’s a simple phone with the most basic features in it like alarm clock, predictive text input and a phonebook which can store about 1000 contacts at a time. Other features include stopwatch, timer, calculator and a calendar for day – to – day functions.

The biggest drawback of this mobile is its memory which is just 2MB which is also not expandable; but, the good side is that it’s really good for college students who require a rough and tough phone with basic features like talking, sending SMS and listening to music. The price too is really cool for a college goer – just Rs 2575/-; easily affordable even if not taken through EMI. For the colors, it comes in two dashing colors metallic black and light champagne, its definitely going to charm youngsters.
