im so disappointed with the quality of c510's camera.
i thought all cybershot phone are all good. id rather choose the k800 phone because it has a xenon flash so even if u take picture at night the quality is still good. and when it comes to autofocus its a lot faster than c510..
just bought c510 a week ago...
my firmware is v30 and camera driver is 2.2,
i noticed in the camera, THERE ARE SO MANY BUGS!!!
1. When you are in MACRO mode, if u press the shutter key once (hard press then release), it will capture a dark picture (means the image is not likely the original, just a bit darker).
2. but when u press it 2 times (1. light press then release, 2. hard press then release), it will capture the original light condition. (means you'll be able to capture the original lighting condition, not dark); which is good.
I dont know what happens but that's what i noticed..
Hi everyone....... How can I update my C510 firmware???? thanks..... what are the changes?????
Had this phone on 3 was terrible reception and the back up service from ** ******* was poor. Avoid 3rd party retailers all they care about is getting your money and they gave you a poorer deal.
hi does anyone know how to Disassemble c510 drop to the paint all cover with orange not good :( just want to clean inside plz help
U are really correct and i accept ur words friend.
Nokia had done a huge mistake in camera and music quality in some of their old handsets.Look N73 is still offer a good music and camera and still living among huge competitors.Now nokia done a improvement in music, offers nice music in 5800XM, midrange XM5630(lot lot improved even it kills iPHONE music in some sound aspects) as a WALKMAN branded w995 fails to impress in music.
I accept u nokia camera performance is really dump when compared to cybershots(not all cybershots).
when compared latest Cyber shots with old SE K810, the camera quality is not likable and more noisy even in c905.
The only hated thing is SE specs sheet lacks lot more with huge price.just compare the N79 and w705 in both price and features.
REALLY I am not a NOKIA fan.
Anyway SE is likable.
mk, 17 Jul 2009I am writing this on my C510 . I haven't noticed lagging , it is very fast , The software is g... moreIt's depend on your own handphone, if you are lucky, u'll the good one, if not..there will be some trouble with it..
However, my c510 is still working good..No yet have complain with it
If you look at what Samsung LG and Nokia are doing their phones have far more advanced technology in their phones with features way beyond what Sony Ericsson are doing. Oh and you go on about Sony Ericsson camera phones er well bet you never realised some have actually been using Samsung camera modules in their phones. Mega pixels does not mean better quality and if you look at pictures taken with the Nokia N82 they are far more sharper than Sony Ericsson. Cyber Shot is just a name it does not mean its quality. Some of Sony's dedicated cameras on the market are not highly rated in terms of picture quality when compared to Canon Nikon or Fuji. Sony cameras use too many gimmiks not concentrating on quality. Even the k800i was buggy and took blurry shots when viewed on a pc. So many people have moved away from Sony Ericsson because of poor quality control phones that die or fall apart. Its the truth. Sorry.
is this phone has a web browser?
can i access the yahoo webpage like k800i??
Faraz, 19 Jul 2009My friend you are so wrong that Nokia's Xpress Music is better than SE's Walkman series. I hav... moreYah I agree with you. SE's business phones aren't so good but when it comes to music or camera, Cyber-shot and Walkman are always the best. The walkman's sound quality is really awesome and Cyber-shot phones takes the best pictures for mobiles. Nokia, however, is good in making computer phones or business phones. I like SE better though because it's more of a fun mobile and Nokia is such a serious business phone. Well we all got our own opinions..
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2009Oh so thats why Nokia are still top and Sony Ericsson are 5th in world ranking. Cos people are... moreMy friend you are so wrong that Nokia's Xpress Music is better than SE's Walkman series. I have used Nokia 5310 and then 5800 and let me assure you that these phone cant match walkman series. I used Nokia for a long time but i shifted to SE cuz i m a music freak. SE gives what anyone would look in a music phone. Yes SE has failed to produce business phone with good internet browsers or office application support but when it comes to Camera and Music, SE doesn’t have no match in the universe. I recommend SE if anyone is a music freak or wants to take clear digital snaps and i recommend Nokia if one wants to use internet and office applications. No offence to anyone but in music SE is the only King of the Ring
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970God you take everything so seriously its only a phone. The crackle sound has happened since the w810 days it happens when skipping tracks on many of their phones and when pausing tracks. Walkman is poor sound i know quality hi fi sound as i review hi fi as my job. Whenever i hear Walkman phones its just muffled on Mega Bass its very over rated. Have you never heard the w910 what a completely awful sound it had. Weedy. Now as you say about Nokia not being top for long well they have been top for longer than any phone manufacturer and their 40% market share is compared to Sony Ericsson who are now only 5%. Even Sony Ericsson themselves know they gotta improve its not good enough with their quality control since after the K800i thats when they lost big market share consumers stopped buying alot of their phones because of poor reliability and phones falling apart. And who cares if Nokia dont have menus not as pretty as you put it what matters is that it works and is reliable and easy to use. All my family own Nokia phones and not one has had any problems or phones falling apart they lasted years. And Nokia use a dedicated audio chip for sound and believe me it sounds good. Your probably one of these stupid bass freaks who never actually listens to the quality or clarity of the music rather just bass all the time. Sony has great dedicated mp3 players but Sony Ericsson together its poor. Sorry its the truth. And i dont make things up. Read forums on Esato website everyone has nothing but problems with Sony Ericsson. And stop swearing you sound like you got anger management problems. Nokia has been top for years and are still the most trusted brand now. Sony Ericsson have got alot of catching up to do. Why are companies such as Samsung or LG racing ahead its cos their tech is far better than Sony Ericsson. Nokia Samsung and LG all put VGA video recording in their phones years ago Sony Ericsson still on QVGA. Their hardware and software is slow since the Ericsson days its always had a slow chip running the menus. See what happens when you try multi tasking it slows down unlike my Nokia 6303. I rest my case.
Kao, 17 Jul 2009I was planning to get this phone so went to test it out a couple of days back. When I was try... moreNo. This phone doesn't hang or lag. Its really stable. Maybe the phone you used had an outdated firmware. The old firmware of this phone is quite laggy. Updating it will increase its performance. I'm a heavy texter aswell and I own this phone. I love the threaded sms thing. You'll really be happy about it. I text atleast 60 messages a day and I love texting with this phone.
