Playing it straight

According to Sony Ericsson, the 920mAh battery is good for 4 hours of chat or 400 on standby. During my test I had to charge the handset on average every two and a half days. Call quality and signal reception were both of a uniformly high standard throughout the test.

Given it needs an adapter for a choice of headphones, the Zylo is left wanting as a music phone

My review handset came from 3 and the cellco will chuck the Zylo into a £13 a month airtime deal for no extra cost or sell you one on PAYG for £90. Those are both pretty good offers and if the thing had a 3.5mm jack I'd suggest buying one over an MP3 player. My advice would be to march into a shop and demand a FastPort adapter as a condition of sale and see what happens.

Verdict

Support for Flac will have people dancing in the aisles, the absence of a 3.5mm audio jack will have them running for the fire exit. It's a horrible contradiction that cannot be forgiven and until it's rectified, it's hard to recommend the Zylo to the very people it's aimed at: those who take their music seriously, and kids who will probably lose the bundled earphones within a week. ®
