I don't know how someone can think this is ugly. I am actually really bummed that it isn't feature loaded because I think it look amazing!
I admit the STN screen is a bit poor, but for god's sake, it is a BUDGET phone. There are actually, god forbid, some people who would like a good looking phone with a camera for taking some photos.
You can't even spell BUDGET, let alone understand what it means.
Oh, and since we are talking about a BUDGET PHONE, the only real BUDGET PHONE I can think of is PANASONIC SA7
($200 at http://www.mobilebee.com)
It's been one year since that phone was released but even a year ago the price was not bad -$300 from the same source.
-2MP Sensor (by Panasonic!!! not by Nokia)
ALL FOR $200!
That's a budget phone!
ANSWERING to previous user:
STN=Garbage quality color screan.
Also it's a joke to have a VGA camera in a cell phone today.
This phone shouldn't have camera at all and no color screan at all, and instead must have a high resolution monochrome screan, must be thicker (to handle normal battery for bluetooth). Then, it would be a real stylish, mature budget phone!
no budget phones here!
COMMON SONY-GROW UP!
This is meant for those who have tight budget of buying a stylish phone with average features,.. for those who says it's ugly; they have no taste-for sure they were nokia 61xx hardcore fans who sticks to their boring and similar designed models...
-admit that this clamshell isa a bit fatter than 6085 ones,. but having a critical look, this far impresses than the latter one and it's other series' design concepts...
yeah it has no card slot, but bear in mind that putting card slot will increase it's price and also competes the sales of z550 and z558 and w300/z530.. SE has a know-how to manage their sales in their units, without sacrificing quality and features and competing with their other series's target market... and they didn't forgot their tight-budgeted loyalist and buyers,.. that's the best strategy ever on a mobile company to increase their sales and to benefit all their costumers...
dis pone stincks. it really ugly. no memory card slut i mean slot. it only 14 mb memory.
Why are sony ericsson bringing out these phones without flash?? and why has it got a rubbish camera stick a 3.2 on it plz!!:p
Exterior design looks a little more conservative than the z610. But I believe it'd be more practical also.
it's kinda cheap...and i suggest this phone for slow thinkers,,and for beginners..hehe!
Sony Ericsson would have got me with this phone if only they added a card slot for extra memory and possibly a half decent camera. Looks nice and good as a budget phone but seriously what can people do with 14 MB?
I'm gonna buy this.. =) It seems to has features that i need and it looks great too!
Better than z300 and cheaper than z500-series.
not bad for a low end model considering how many other low end models other manufacturers are churning out that don't even have basic connectivity options, a step in the right direction as far as i'm concerned
this is a great looking phone. too bad the internal screen is not Tft.
So ****** ugly, i cant understand how someone can say that nokia makes uglyer than these. Well soon nokia will hit their "ultra thin"-models and people will go crazy. Even now nokia makes the most beauty phones for ex look the e60.. The LG chocolade is everything else than good looking.
I rather buy phone with metal than a crap like this with something shiny plastic on it.
