Great little phone


Great simple, sleek phone for the price

This phone is exactly what I expect it to be. I was in the market for a phone that made calls, text msg, and took good photos. This phone does all of that and very well. It looks sleek, I often get compliments on it. It is very small and quite hefty...

Not the best antenna. Sony isn't known for this antenna quality. I work inside a hospital and can't get any service though some phones with the same plan can

Great All-Around Phone


This isn't a feature laden smart phone, but rather a simple bar phone that covers the basics really well. If you like Sony Ericssson phones, you'll love this one.

Great screen, snappy/intuitive interface, nice keypad, solid/well built, attractive design, decent sound quality, decent reception, good battery life, quad-band, good amount of customization options

Uses Memory Stick, uses SE proprietary charging/date port, earpiece volume could be a touch louder, camera cover can open unintentionally when sliding phone out of your pocket

cute, but battery sucks


design, size, sound

horrible battery life; tiny keypad; proprietary jack (and cannot charge and use headphones at the same time); poor customer support from Sony (though Newegg is wonderful!); did I mention lousy battery life

Great little phone


Well built, beautiful screen, decent photos, snappy UI

Sound quality on both ends during a call are a bit muffled and the volume is not loud enough for the streets of NY. Also, the back cover does not come off easily. I travel overseas often and need to swap SIM cards, which is proving to be a hassle

not bad of a phone


i dont know if it is only my phone but when i am not using the head set the area around the screen gets really warm so prolonged use scares me also the lights drain the battery if you forgot to lock the phone

slick style great features the m2 slot is easily accessed large screen camera in the front and back which is protected

alarm doesnt make phone vibrate the two buttons on top is a bit small not good for people with big fingers
