Sony Ericsson C510 Cyber-shot Mobile Phone


It's very hard to tell what denotes a particular brand or segment of mobiles from a given company. Normally I would have perceived that the ‘C' in some Sony Ericsson handsets, like t

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro Review


Outwardly the Vivaz pro is pretty much identical to its sibling the original Vivaz, but look closer and there are some important differences and not just in terms of how the handsets look. The most obvious departure from the original Vivaz is in the...

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

Over all very good product, but should have come with stereo handsfree to be used with AUX cable in car to listen music like W series phones

Brilliant Display

No stereo handsfree

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

Consumer review by:

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
