I purchased this phone in FEB 2009, the music player is good with HPM77 Headset, the camera is good in daylight only, inside home pics in tubelight conditions is very poor, the flash is no help, gprs browsing is good, good display, sunlight visibility very poor( Nokia is the best in sunlight) very soft keypad, fast software,no themes in zedge, worst drawback, the call quality is very poor, no clarity in voice calls, take a call in the street and you can not hear the words clearly , no good looks, I have lost faith in sony ericsson, the earlier phones like W700i, W810i could take pics in poor light with flash and the pics would come good and had good call quality. If you want to waste money buy this phone.
is it true that c510 has a charging problem? please reply.. i really wanted to buy this phone.
I had this phone for a few months now. Battery life is excellent. Sound quality is not too bad and picture quality is pretty average. I say average for the picture quality coz of poor performance in low light conditions. But it has a pretty decent camera if you are not taking photos at night. The flash is pretty useless though. But pretty decent camera if u wana take photos during day time.
I put in a 8GB card and it has been working pretty ok. Then the phone started to slow down and lag a bit. Sometimes when i issue a few commands the phone hangs, then executes all of them at once. A few times it froze as well and I had to remove the battery and restart. Then one day all of a sudden it started to compalin that it cannot detect any mobile network. I restarted, removed the sim, even reset the phone. Nothing fixed the problem. I simply downloaded the update software from Sony Ericsson website and it automatically updated the phone software to the latest firmware (very simple...all it takes is a button press and the software does the rest for you). Since then, the phone has been working really smooth. Havent seen a single freeze, lag, hang, delay or any problems. Now i'm loving a phone. So if you recently bought the phone, I suggest you download the update software from Sony Ericsson web site and let it do its thing. Would solve pretty much all of the phone problems. But if you are hoping to see better performance on camera, well, you might wana buy a better phone. But for the low price tag this one comes with, I don't think you can buy a better phone with all these little features packed in. It's a average level phone which does pretty much everything its designed to do well. So I got no complaints.
Happy shoppin guys
is it possible to have a wifi software suitable for this phone?
I was wondering since the phone doesnt have Wlan, if there is a way to have wifi on this phone
flash is useless in auto mode but when you switch off the auto mode flash is ok .Music is good on headphonesand a nice looking phone .video recording is very good 30 fps
picture quality is good in daytime only..in night it becomes dead..flash is useless
