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. Still, the elegant and stylish design, revamped interface and capable browser make for a decent option to anyone on the lookout for a simpler phone with decent camera and seemly price.
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: The Sony Ericsson C510 Cyber-shot mobile phone really is a competitor with camera phones. Ok the Sony Ericsson C905 mobile phone features an 8.1 mega-pixel camera the C510 really does feature the same highest imaging technologies along with the Sony Ericsson C902i. The Sony C510 has style and elegance packed full of the latest technologies and entertainment qualities and is more affordable than other leading mobile phones.
Sony Ericsson's latest Cyber-shot mobile phone is the most affordable one yet.

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: The Sony Ericsson C510 Cyber-shot represents a good antidote to the feature bloat that's seen the size of handsets increase and battery life fall. The photo quality doesn't live up to the Cyber-shot name, but the C510's good selection of features makes it a worthwhile handset -- as long as you have small fingers
Pros: Elegant design, Straightforward user interface, Solid lens cover, Good support for podcasts and news feeds, Built-in Google Maps
Cons: No proper flash, Tightly spaced, small keys, No standard headphone jack or adaptor, Requires a memory card to be bought separately
Excerpt: 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 does the C510 from Sony Ericsson give us anything to get excited about, or does it play second fiddle to the C902 and C905 models? The C510 comes as part of the Cyber-shot range from Sony Ericsson, so has a leaning towards the 3.2-megapixel camera on the back.
Pros: HSDPA, good build quality, great keypad, social networking applications
Cons: Cyber-shot functions a little poor, no 3.5mm jack, battery life
