Top 5 Music Phones
Music Phones are supposed to deliver better than average sound quality than most phones. They don’t need to be touchscreen-capable or having an excellent camera.
As long as they can deliver great music with or without headphones and can sync with your needs, definitely you won’t need to buy an iPod or Sony Walkman for that. Check out these music phones and pick what you like the most!
Regarded as 2009’s Best Music Phone by Amobil, the Sony Ericsson W995 just lives up to everyones’ expectations. Sporting a 8.1 MP camera and 2.6 inch screen, W995 can take and view pictures in very good quality compared to other phones.
Walkman 4.0 is also integrated inside the phone. Nifty features like Clear Bass and Clear Stereo greatly improves sound quality especially when you’re using the speakers. It also has a built-in stand for watching videos together with your mates.
Nokia’s XpressMusic line of phones has been getting a lot of attention lately from audiophiles around the world. It features a compact design, responsive touchscreen and the oh-so excellent music player — What’s not to like with this phone?
Nokia also improved its inboard browser together with a good range of apps. You also get a 8GB microSD card and earphones on the box for free but if you don’t like the earphones, better buy those comfy headphones to really get the full potential of this phone!
The successor of iPhone 3G features the same looks and all but the change is really on the inside. The latest iPhone increased its processor speed, now up to 600MHz compared to 400Mhz, so rigorous tasks such as gaming would be speedier than ever.
As for its audio capabilities, this iPhone provides a simple, intuitive way to listen to your tunes. You can download any song directly to the phone with the help of iTunes so you’ll never have to connect to your computer for just transferring songs!
Sony Ericsson really did make a name of itself around music phones, talking about their Walkman phones. Although Aino isn’t part of the Walkman line of phones, it’s still capable of delivering the best audio quality like any other phone.
The Aino is a hybrid slider, touchscreen when the slider is closed, keypad-oriented when not. Once the slider is closed you can access photos, music, radio etc. using your bare hands. Its unique feature is that it is capable of connecting to your PS3 but only limited to your PS3’s photos and such. The Aino suffered performance issues last year such as frequent lags and low battery life.
Thanks to frequent updates by Sony, most issues are already fixed and the phone was further improved. There’s an included desk charger, bluetooth headset and 8GB microSD card on the box so this one is pretty worth the bucks.
Chocolate Touch is LG’s third phone from their Chocolate line. The phone is full touchscreen with built-in accelerometer to flip from portrait to landscape. The most awesome feature of this phone however is its Dolby’s Mobile equalizer.
Audiophiles can tweak it to their preferred taste and choose from five preset settings (Flat, Bass Boost, Treble Boost, Vocal Boost or Classical). Speaker quality and battery life excellent so you can listen to your tunes all day without recharging.
