Like all other Sony Ericsson phones, the Spiro offers a Walkman player and FM radio. However, it doesn’t have much to offer making it not worthy to buy.
Most phones nowadays are touchscreen smartphones but unfortunately, not everyone can afford it. If all you need to do is send text messages, make calls, listen to music, or connect to Facebook, then you can do so by buying the Sony Ericsson Spiro. At less than 50 quid, you can get a basic phone that has Bluetooth connectivity and a basic camera, packed in a compact phone.
Despite its affordability, the company compromised a lot just to make the phone affordable to a lot of people. Although at such price you cannot get GPS or WiFi connectivity, it will be better if the phone is equipped with a larger memory and triband operation. It only has 5MB of internal memory, making it necessary to purchase a separate microSD memory card.
Even though the Spiro lacks in a lot of features, it does great when it comes to playing music. It has a Walkman 4.0 player, an FM radio equipped with RDS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. With such features available, there is nothing to complain about, except for its poor internal memory.
The other feature that Spiro offers is access to social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook however, the connection is rather sluggish. Since it does not have 3G for a faster internet access, you cannot really rely on updates that are up to minute. With its tiny screen, internet browsing will not be a pleasurable experience. Aside from such poor features, the Spiro also has the tendency to break down more often.
In short, the Sony Ericsson Spiro isn’t worth the money, despite its cheap price. So if you want something that is worth buying, then you should try other phone models and look at sell mobile phone price comparison sites and recycle your phone for cash.
