The W580i is not just a light-weight phone and a music player but it also acts as a personal trainer. In addition, on this deal, it is absolutely free and comes with one of the most flexible deals on the market - the classic Flext tariff from T-Mobile. In addition, the line rental has been slashed in price so you save a very healthy £210 in line rental fees over the course of the contract.

Look and feel
It feels quite solid but the battery cover is prone to the odd creak while the soft keys are overly spongy.
With the built-in pedometer, runners can track distance, average speed and time while the monitor is on default to automatically count your walking steps.
The W580i harbours a standard mid-range two-megapixel snapper, woefully deprived of autofocus, Macro focus for close-ups, and any type of flash.
Ease of use
A very easy to use phone and the Walkman player is fun. The five-way navigation pad controls the player when in Walkman mode.
The Walkman W580i is another juice-tastic handset from Sony Ericsson.
