“Please don’t stop the music” wants Rihanna – and Sony Ericsson built to fit his Walkman phones trimmed on the mobile music consumption. Consequently the slider model W20i wants to meet the right tone aka zylo with his musical talents, which also largely succeeds. So, the music player with Coverflow, clearly arranged menu navigation and portrait and landscape display can add not only optical accents.

The five-volume Equalizer can be adjusted manually on the personal taste, playlists are created instantly and you can sort the music to songs, albums, artists, or genres. With Walkman-click on the side of the housing, the player can also by tilting, tilting or shaking the phone control a nice gimmick — in itself, but the position sensor reacts too slowly to hand acrobatics would really make sense. The same is true for the background music on the phone: who wants to simulate not just a visit to the Department store, it gladly will cease.

The supplied headphones of the Sony Ericsson zylo are expected only average, listening to music in the car or while jogging but sufficient. Who would like to use the zylo as permanent Jukebox, better eavesdroppers want to access quickly and thereby get angry about the proprietary interface. When purchasing a jack adapter should you with order just a USB cable for data transfer and a maximum of 16 GB large MicroSD card, because the memory of almost 240 MB will be exhausted quite quickly. The art with a music discovery tool, a RDS radio and a dance game is completed.

Praise is there at this point for the pleasing big pusher of the keypad, the case pretty grippy thanks to non-slip coat, very decent processed and the ordinary laboratory performance. No criterion is that the Web – and E-Mail qualities of the Sony Ericsson zylo not with glory pounding, finally we are dealing here with a cheap musician – who want mobile Internet needs a Smartphone. Music Diva Rihanna puts it in a nutshell: “Let it escape into the music”.
