As I mentioned earlier, the overall look of Sony Ericsson W890i is really simple. However, that doesn’t make this phone simple in the real implementation. At a glance, it looks really simple on the outside, but once you have a hold of this phone in your hands, this phone is really classy and elegant.
One of the things that makes this phone look classy and elegant is the surface of its case cover that has a unique pattern that feels convenient in grasp. If you look closer at the case cover, the surface looks like the pattern/texture of plank or wood which has an abstract lines in the whole surface.
