Eten M800 Review at phonearena!

“The whole front side reminds of the idea of the phone – it is made for work and not for fun. The titanium-colored plastic nicely combines with the brushed aluminum frame around the display. The latter is situated in the middle of the phone, which leaves little space for the buttons below. In addition, they are capacitive touch sensitive keys (respond to touch of finger but not a stylus) and are not really perfectly responsive so using them may be a problem. An option allows you to add vibration (haptic) and/or sound, to indicate once a key is ‘activated’. Additional problems add the fact that after a few seconds of inactivity, the keys ‘lock’ and one must press the display or the joystick, to ‘unlock’ them. The navigation joystick in the middle, is usable, but is a pain when compared to a good D-pad. ” Read more here:

Review of GSM/UMTS smartphone Sony Ericsson G900

“Smartphones have long been considered bulkier than feature phones, but this paradigm has been changing as of late, and the margins between them are getting slimmer with the Sony Ericsson G900, which conforms with the trend at 106x49x13 mm, and 99 grams (while the Sony Ericsson P1i measured 106x55x17mm). This phone, which is the name we will be using for the G900 throughout this review for convenience, readily slips into just about any pocket, thanks to its decent proportions.” Read more here:
