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...

Sony Ericsson C510 mobile phone


Sony Ericsson's latest Cyber-shot mobile phone is the most affordable one yet.

Simple, stylish design, camera features, sliding lens cover, HSDPA-capable, user interface, great screen

Controls and keypad a little small, lack of Xenon flash, proprietary headphone jack

Sony Ericsson's C510 Cyber-shot mobile phone represents excellent value for money at this price. It won't wow you with its features, but this is a more than capable mobile phone with a stylish design.

Sony Ericsson C510 - Pocket-lint


It must be hard being branded as an "affordable" mobile phone. It sort of detracts from the fact you might have something to offer in your own right. So

HSDPA, good build quality, great keypad, social networking applications

Cyber-shot functions a little poor, no 3.5mm jack, battery life

The integration between applications and the homescreen is refreshing - seeing your Facebook updates or RSS feeds scrolling across the screen gives the impression that things come together nicely.
