(+) Weight and Size: The Sony Ericsson Z600 weighs only 3.88 ounces. This is relatively lighter than average and should make this phone comfortable to use and carry around

(-) Phone Book: It only stores variable phone book entries, which is sufficient for the casual cell phone user but, if you have many business contact or friends, this may not be enough for you. Look for phones with more contacts.
(-) Built-in Speakerphone: It doesn't feature a built-in speakerphone, yet, a speakerphone is useful in some situations and it's important to know that many other phones do have a built-in speakerphone.

(+) Battery Performance: It has a maximum rated standby time of 300 hours and a talk time of 540 minutes, which is above average and should be sufficient for most users.
(+) Color Display: The color display's color mode is 65,536 and its resolution is 128x160. A color display is useful when browsing the wireless web or viewing pictures and, of course, the larger it is, the better the experience and, the more colors, the better your pictures will look.
(-) Analog Roaming: It doesn't support analog roaming. Analog is the older North-American cellular technology, however North-American networks are increasingly converting to large digital-only networks, which makes analog a not-so-useful feature (check coverage maps for your area to discriminate on that aspect).
(+) Bluetooth: It is Bluetooth-enabled, which is an interesting plus. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or exchange data with your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance.
(+) Infrared: It has an infrared port. Infrared is convenient, especially if you own a laptop (most laptops are infrared equipped), you can then use your computer to transfer contacts, ringtones or pictures (if the phone supports these functions) to the Sony Ericsson Z600.
(+) Connectivity: It includes both an infrared port and bluetooth-support, which is the top in terms of connecting your cell phone to other cell phones, PDA's or computers. It means that if your computer has either Bluetooth or Infrared, you can instantly connect the Sony Ericsson Z600 to your computer and download phone book contacts and ringtones or pictures, provided the phone supports these functions.
(+) Text Messaging: It features a special way of typing text, either a full keyboard or some predictive text entry method such as T9 or iTAP. This is useful if you need to send short messages: it's much faster.
(+) Voice Note: It includes voice notes . A voice note system is quite useful to make quick notes and reminders while on the road.
(+) Free Custom Ringtones: . It seems to support ringtone customization in a do-it-yourself manner, but we recommend double-checking. To help assess this phone's behavior with ringtones, check out the ringtone compatibility list.
