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

Summary: 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.
Pros: Simple, stylish design, camera features, sliding lens cover, HSDPA-capable, user interface, great screen
Cons: Controls and keypad a little small, lack of Xenon flash, proprietary headphone jack
Summary: This mid-range performer mixes it up with impressive results
Pros: 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash Cyber-shot user interface with Face Detection, Smile Shutter features, Sliding lens cover, HSDPA high-speed 3G connectivity, Music player, FM radio, Slimline desgn, Responsive numberpad, Motion sensor automatic screen orientation for some functions, Google Maps...
Cons: No Wi-Fi, Limited low-light shooting perfomance, No smartphone functionality, No touchscreen control, Video capture quality limited, Motion sensor doesn't work with all functions, In-box earphones are average, No 3.5mm headphone socket, Multi-connector positioning on side
Conclusion: 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. This might be a "camera" phone, but its strengths lie in being a social phone.
Pros: HSDPA, good build quality, great keypad, social networking applications
Cons: Cyber-shot functions a little poor, no 3.5mm jack, battery life
