Our review today is of the final release in Sony Ericsson's trio of budget Walkman phones, the Spiro. The Spiro is cheaper than its older siblings, the Sony Ericsson and . As you might expect as the cheapest, at $100, it also has the shortest list...

The conclusion I would draw from the Spiro is similar to that of the Zylo. For me personally if I were to choose between the two I would go for the Spiro the reason being it doesn't pretend to be anything it's not. The Zylo is not a bad phone...

With a very basic set of specifications the Spiro is only really likely to appeal to music fans who don't want a lot more from their mobile phone than a decent music player. If that's you, then the good build and attractive price may well be...

The Sony Ericsson Spiro launched alongside the Zylo, its Walkman-branded slider brother-in-arms. While the Zylo used its FLAC audio support as its unique selling point, the Spiro doesn't really have a comparable feature, so what's to recommend...

The black and white, Sony Ericsson Spiro, is a pleasant sight with its size & looks and makes a very good first impression, much like its superior phone from the walkman series, Sony Ericsson Zylo. This one looks almost the same, only a bit smaller...

The Spiro is a light and compact phone. I tried out the Stealth Black version of the phone, which looks rather sleek for a phone at the low end of the market.It shares many traits with other Sony Ericsson models, particularly the Navi key. It’s...

An MRP of Rs. 5,600 doesn’t seem excessive, although if you compare the feature list to phones in a similar price bracket from smaller vendors, you will notice a huge difference. Smaller vendors give you more features, but then, they don’t provide the...

At the end of the day, the Sony Ericsson Spiro proved to be an average music slider. The handset did not stand out in any of the categories we tested it, but it also did not fail, except for the camera department, where we found it to be very...

By CNET UK on 70

At half the price of the Zylo, its Sony Ericsson stablemate, the Spiro makes much more sense -- especially when you take into account the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone socket. If you seek a music-playing phone for less than 50 quid this is definitely...

Trotz Defiziten bei der Kamera und einer eher einfachen Ausstattung ist das Sony Ericsson Spiro ein gelungener Einsteiger-Slider. Für kleines Geld erhalten Sie ein Handy, das fernab der Standard-Funktionen zumindest ein paar nette Gimmicks wie den...
