just got my elm a few days ago. up till now its pretty damn good. the battery is amazing 2.2inch screen is perfect aswell,and i dont see any problems in the sun,cuz c510 and c902 refect pretty much the same. as for the keybord- it is really comfortable.
camera is good as c902's so there's definately nothing to complain about or compare to nokias.
the speakers though ,are not very impressive so as the headset which comes with the phone, but when i connected my senheisser hd-201-FU K it the sound was amazing -damn what a beat better then my logitech speakers ;D...
there are a few down points-major 1 is the internet, wifi is hard to connect and there are no help boards about it in the net "i get out of range.try again" -even SE page doesn't provide solution to this, so facebook and utube also fails... the phone is made out of recycled plastic so its pretty brittle and you can feel it when you hold elm in your hand but then again its not a high end phone like c902,its actually pretty damn cheap
"its impossible to type on the desk" u guys are just poor stupid fat phucks" the back is really genius it is really damn comfortable. "the connection is bad they sould have made it with 3.5mm jack and micro usb"
well true but the changeover cable costs 6lt(2dollars)
so nothing to complain about 4a few years till the connection cracks up(it always does on se phones)
"the phone is slow or it lags" where the phuk have you been all SE does much or less c902 was pretty awful on this aspect
This is an excellent review guys! Very detailed and well thought after. I have been an ardent SE user for years now, and the only issues I face with SE are a) somewhat the reception & b)LOUDSPEAKER VOLUME!!!
It seems like 'a' would not be much of a problem in this case but will have to again make do with the low volumes. After reading this review I am definitely going ahead with buying the ELM (was tempted to get a BB 8250). Looking forward to the much awaited smart-search feature! What a relief. Thanks again for the gr8 review, keep 'em coming:)
Kartik, 25 Aug 2010I bought ELM for 9300 in New Delhi. Must say the display is bad.the camera is bad.dnt knw wha... moreWe have an Elm, and the photos are excellent, great exposure, colour etc. Check your settings or compare to another one. My only complaint is it has problems (sometimes) autofocusing in low light, and the lack of a 3.5mm jack and USB charging port. Else, great value at £99 at Carphone Warehouse here in the UK.
Hey friends, I hope to buy this phone. But can anybody tell me what is better, Elm or C903? And please tell me about wi-fi and the gps system of this phone. Thanks.

Must say the display is bad.the camera is bad.dnt knw whaz wrong wid the camera.but it seems the pics it captures r alwayz so dull.above all,the headset it provide really is not what sony delievers.It is the worst part in ELM.This phone probably has only design + 3G/GPS etc for under 10K.But really disappointed with the sound output.
Even my earlier Z550i headset was many times better

Zata, 23 Aug 2010I have used SE phones since their beginning. I got Elm as a replacement of my great old W850. ... moreactually I want to buy this phone,but you said like that so I cancel plan
Thanks for u advice
How about it's sound quality compared to W395? And the picture quality when zoomed in? Does it have dual-speakers?
anyone knows how to switch to the front camera when using video call?
can anyone reply me? thx a lot!
Yes and u can copy text when browsing which is killing feature, file transfer app is handy and last but not the least DLNA feature rocks!!!
You-Tube, Twitter only connects with WIFI and not GPRS/Edge, Why SE, Why? Themes dont work unless u convert them to 4.9 version, Rest everything is GOOD, Cool handsfree, Looks cool.
