Excerpt: There’s something pleasing about an entry level phone that looks good enough to hold its head up around the more pricy models. The Sony Ericsson S312 falls into this category thanks to the mirrored borderless 2-inch screen, although there’s little else going on.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson S312 is a simple, shiny handset for those times when a smart phone is overkill and you'd rather stare at yourself than your mobile. Its low price tag is a fair deal for its small selection of features
Pros: Magpie-friendly shiny screen; good looks; small size; dedicated camera and video buttons; useful LED photo light.
Cons: No 3G connectivity; proprietary headphone jack; low-resolution screen; few features.
Conclusion: This phone would be ideal as possibly a second phone for short trips etc. But I would say it wold easily fit in to someone’s full time life style and I would hate to see it wasted in the former mentioned fashion.
Summary: Mobile phones, particularly mass market ones, usually come in a variety of dull flavors – there's never too much style and everything is done to save on costs, which in turn are passed onto the consumer. The Sony Ericsson S312, however, has aspirations above and beyond this.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson S312 attempts to deliver a little more convenience for camera users, without really upping the results at the end of it. To call it a camera phone will only set it up for a fall: this is an entry-level handset, which unfortunately due to a few design decisions feels exactly that.
Pros: Simple to use, practical camera shortcuts
Cons: Cheap materials, poor keyboard, poor video capture
