For me SE Elm (J10i2) is one of the better phones i know:
I like the buttons - they give a very good feeling of reaching the correct button. And I like the "system" of how every letter, space, and so on, is placed. Space-button, for example, is the same as Nokia: Number 0-button. I like that! Earlier had SE-phones the space-button on #-button. Not so good. Elm has also the alternative T9-words on the same button as Nokia: *-button! But! U can also change the T9-words with the 4-way-button. Good!
But one bad thing... They have taken away (at least in my phone) MANY alternative T9-words... Irritating!! For example, phones like Sony Ericsson W595 and K610i has the "real" number of those words. So u have to write many more words that is missing in T9..!

But, as said before: The buttons are REALLY good - u can write without see the buttons. Even 4-way-button is really good constructed for the fingers.

Also a bad things: The display has a bit DARK "stile"... Not good!! Yes, the pictures from camera and internet are a bit dark. (For example: SE W595 has a display that is much better and Sony Ericsson should have put that in SE Elm instead! The display in W595 gives a MUCH more natural and correct "light". (Thats very easy to see if u can compare them i reality.) I can tell that W595 is in MANY ways the same as SE Elm - some better, some worse. Same meny for example. Though space-button is on #. But it has more T9-words.
U can look the difference urself her on GSMarena if u want.)

In SOME ways SE Elm are SLOW... For example to delete pictures.
But in other ways the phone is fast. (If u test the "old" phone SE K610i u notice how fast it is in many ways than SE Elm.)
And to start SE Elm take unnecessary long time. (K610i is much faster.)

Battery-times is ok, but I actually wish that battery was better = better standby-/talktime - why must mobile-phones be so thin?... LONG battery-time is soo good. In my opinion.

To open up the back to reach battery and sim-card is unnecessary difficult. Patience is needed! (I guess people with bad patience can get mad on that - and break the phones into pieces, haha!)

The phone is quite good on internet. Ok, not a "year 2013"-class maybe.
One good thing is that Sony Ericsson has taken away many unnecessary steps on the "click"-way to internet. On earler phones (also Nokia and others) u needed to do unnecessary many clicks for that.

Radio is quite ok...though NOT in my taste. I rather prefer phones like Nokia 2300, 2310, 5630, which is better and more practical in some ways: U can change FM-channel with handsfree-button (and extremely quickly too!). U cant that with SE Elm: U must click new channel on the PHONE.

SE have, on later phones, a contact for the charger/handsfree that isnt so practical. For many people who use the phone much, after long using months/years, the "female"-contact slots, and cant remain the contact in the phone... U may then need a rubber band to hold the "male"-contact in the phone. NOT good! SE's earlier phones had a much better contact. And they had TWO "female"-contacts: One for charger and one for handsfree. Much better. (Example SE K700.)
Also: For SE Elm u need a bit newer kind of charger that is combined with "male"-contact - IF u want to use handfree while u do a phonecall and need to charge at the same time.

Camera is quite ok (but not the "dark display, as told before).
I actually dont use the camera of this phone much.

Anyway: Generally SE Elm is one of the better phones from Sony Ericsson, I think. Good for phonecalls, good in internet (but not so good for example Youtube) and more. VERY good buttons.
And the phone has a quite good, big display.

...But... I remeber the phone (as new) was delivered with a kind of handsfree that DIDNT have a phonecall-button... OOOH, that was bad! (NOT good! Hahaha!)
