Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson C510 brings along all good distinguishing marks characteristic of all devices by the same manufacturer, such as robust battery that lasts (10 hrs talk time and 400 hrs in standby). Unfortunately, snapshot quality is the same as the old (but gold) Sony Ericsson K800.
Pros: Comfy and easy to use, Excellent browser, Smiling face detection technology, Passable quality of outdoor pictures
Cons: Forget about snapshots indoors, Doesn´t bring out anything new alongside of previous 3-megapixel phones, Unfit for video playback
Conclusion: Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson is a combination of both massive potential and mild disappointment. The lack of real power in the camera department is – if I’m honest – a let down considering this is advertised as a Cybershot device.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson C510 Cyber-shot doesn't have too many exciting bells, and the whistles aren't very jaunty. For a mid-tier phone, you'll find a few features, mainly based around the tempting mobile internet functionality that 3 provides. It's available on 3 from £15 a month on contract.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson C510 offers clear calls, solid reception quality and loud and somewhat shrill ring tones, although they don’t start creaking at the highest volume settings. While it’s not the loudest phone we’ve tested to date, I can’t say I missed any calls with it or ended up out of the coverage...
Summary: The C510 looks very similar to the C902, but we love the big, vibrant screen. Unfortunately, this does encroach on the keypad and leave it a little cramped. The screens are easy to navigate, and the shortcuts to the social networking sites (3 only) were very convenient.
Pros: 3 customers can keep up to date with their Facebook updates.
Cons: The on-board memory is miserly, as is the lack of a microSD card.
