BTW, have you tried switching to a 2G network? You might get a much better signal reception, and you can save on battery. (That is, if you don't use the videocall and internet).
Hope that helps.

I have a 4gb Sony M2 and it gave me plenty of headaches. So i bought an 8-gb Sandisk card and the phone haven't slowed down one bit. Trust me.

With R1HA035 FW version:
Brighter screen (which in turn leads to a shorter battery life).
Poorer flash wallpaper rendering. The animation is not smooth (very jerky movements). I did not know what happened. No problem with the previous FW versions before.
Change some of the format in the Settings.
Added a Sony Ericsson PC Companion. (Installation file is already on the phone memory.
Still erratic 3G signal reception.
Improved overall call reception.
Improved audio performance.
Decreased available phone memory (around 88mb).
No more flickering screen issues.
And........ the camera:
I don't know about you guys, but i can't seem to take very clear/sharp photos anymore. It sure looks nice on the phone's screen but once I view it on my computer, the photos are not good. Though the oil painting effect is gone, the photos were blurry not sharp, compared with the previous FW versions.
Flash is still useless. SE improved it a little bit but still you can't take photos more than a feet away. C510s got dual led flash, and SE did not put it to use which is a shame.
Now i am using updtae version R1HA035 in my C510a. can any one please tell about the perfomance after the updation.

It is worth it if you dont use the Walkman series media player in the handset, while the c510 has a 'good' media player, its not as good as a Walkman style (by the way, the speaker is not very good, if you leave it upside down, the sound is almost completly shut off). Also if you have more then 2gbs of memory on the fone it will slow quiet dramaticaly.
Though if it is the camera your after, then yes, because it has a lot better camera quality/ features then the w810i.
After you have concider these features, your choice is made because other then these main advantages/ disadvantages, the fone is far more crisp, slick, stylish, possibably lighter and obviously newer and with all the little things that come with a new and improved handset.
Hope I helped

screen reso is better on c510 but thats it. the elm might be a worth while replacment but wait a few months to c if theres any issues.
good luck : )
pls help. how to resolve the common issue of c510? camera flash, it's useless in a dimlight. i tried to update the firmware which is I read that opinion few days ago, but after I update it, there is still no changes. help help help plsss...
i bought my unit 2 weeks ago and i was amazed by its superb capabilities. i have been dying to buy this phone ever since it came out on the market. but what kinda downed my expectations was its camera. shots taken from poorly-lit environment were really bad, even if i used its flash. i have to use another option, twilight, to make me able to get better photos. but sadly, in that option, i can't use the flash. in other words, if you are to take a photo of dim-lighted scene, you can't see anything. crap.
i have a w810i (SE)and i wanna upgrade it to Sony Ericsson C510 is it better this cell phone than w810i? i am asking because my cell phone still works pretty well after 2 years and i was wondering if is worth it to upgrade it..
