Review of GSM UMTS handset Sony Ericsson W910i

“This model’s prototypes had one problem in common – the halves sat too tight, and the upper slide’s inner side was greatly exposed to wear and tear. But thankfully, before the W910i got onto the production line, this flaw had been dealt with. And to put our worries to rest, we zipped it open/closed 15 thousand times, which is obviously a mere drop in the ocean compared to what they to at the maker’s facilities – like 100 hundred thousand or so. Still, our unit had no scuffs whatsoever on that problem place – at least, we couldn’t spot them with our eyes. Of course these is a good chance that we would have seen them if we had been looking through a magnifier or just staring at the W910i.” Read more here:
