Expensive toy that, generally, people don´t really need

from PhoneArena

We have to admit the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness X5 leaves us with quite mixed feelings. On the one hand, the cell phone is spectacular to look at and its transparent display is definitely something we hope to see more often, plus most people will find the functionality of the device more than adequate, not to mention its backed up by truly great in-call quality. On the other hand, the handset is expensive and we cannot disregard the low build quality and lack of camera...

We have to admit the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness X5 leaves us with quite mixed feelings. On the one hand, the cell phone is spectacular to look at and its transparent display is definitely something we hope to see more often, plus most people will find the functionality of the device more than adequate, not to mention its backed up by truly great in-call quality. On the other hand, the handset is expensive and we cannot disregard the low build quality and lack of camera.

As we have already mentioned, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness X5 would set you back with around $1,000. True, what you get for the buck is premium services and privileges as well, but these are not conveniences people tend to use on a daily basis. You can easily find the LG Crystal GD900 for about a third of the money – the phone comes brimming with extra features and sports an impressive overall look thanks to its transparent keyboard. The Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte is a tad more expensive than the Xperia X5 Pureness, but its build quality is much better.

However, let´s get back to what we said at the beginning of the review. If money is not an issue, people can afford to pamper themselves and buy expensive toys that, generally, they don´t really need. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness X5 is that kind of device. It is aimed at people, who don’t mind the price tag and want a truly unique device that can be easily replaced with something more practical to fit their mood. In case you´re wondering if the X5 is worth the money, the straightforward answer is “No”.

The Sony Ericsson has trimmed the fat with its Xperia Pureness and made a phone that doesn't have room for any extras, just a sleek-looking, simple handset that’s great for a night out. You could get a lot more phone for the money, but if you want something that stands out it's a uniquely stylish option.

If you’ve got £650 burning a hole in your pocket and you’re looking for a light, stylish party phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness has the wow factor you may be looking for. For anyone else, the obscure see-though screen and lack of features mean that it doesn’t stack up to most budget phones.
