Although quite extensive, SE Zylo not support in order to operate the touch-screen menu. Everything is done through the six main buttons and a circular d-pad under the screen.

As with previous Walkman series phones, SE Zylo also has a dedicated button to turn on the music player, just below the volume buttons are located on the side. Walkman button also serves as a camera shutter. Two main call button is large enough and easily suppressed, but 4 other buttons are very small (extreme). Circumference of the navigation is quite good and comfortable to use.

SE Zylo armed with 3.15 MP camera that can be snapped pictures with fairly. Sometimes a bit blurry and less detailed. Taking pictures in the room was only good when the lighting adequate, because there is no flash. But for outdoors, SE Zylo is qualified. testing: Tracing the contours of the design carefully.

It is unfortunate that SE Zylo does not support WiFi connections are now emerging. Therefore, data access is based on a 3G connection, which offers download speeds up to 7.2 Mbps.


Overall, the performance is quite good SE Zylo. Moreover, with additional new features that have not been there in previous Walkman series. His ability to play FLAC files also become the new benchmark for the industry to produce mobile phones in the path of music. But the absence of WiFi and a 3.5 mm audio jack multibrand become weaknesses landslide.

Incoming phone calls voice sounded quiet in speakers. Despite having set the highest volume, but it still not enough, especially when in a noisy environment. Mic and speaker sound quality is good.
