Sony Ericsson W350 Walkman

Flimsy might be a bit of an understatement when it comes to describing Sony Ericsson’s W350 Walkman phone introduced last year. Mainly an entry-level music-oriented handset, targeted at the youth market, the W350 had no chance at withstanding the wear and tear it would be exposed to by the teens it was intended for.

Shortly after the phone went on sale, owners started posting to Internet forums that the ultrathin phone literally falls apart. Over the W350’s keypad was a wobbly flip cover with music playback controls on the front. Worse, the handset’s battery cover opened too easily, according to many users, who reported online that they lost this cover after only a few weeks of use.
