i luv sony mobiles..and elm is weight less .. nd easy 2 use..bt i lost my mobile in chennai..
After two years...
1) Superb battery life. Drain for 3 days on average usage. (Call, text, some facebooking). You won't get this on android.
2) Superb camera. Even do 5mp consider as 'old stuff' these days but for me is more than enough.
3) Super durability. Never went to service center to service this phone. I accidentally step on it(Weight 90kg) but the phone still fine.
4) It's java phone. No need worry about Viruses.
5) multitasking. (most shocking feature)
1) Terrible signal. (Every Elm user knows this)
2) low quality keypad sticker. The keypad still in very good condition but the numbers on it already gone.
3) Low volume speaker. missed a call is a normal thing
4) Crap earphone. Change to Sony Ericsson HPM-85 headset for best quality sound.
5) FastPort connector. I HATE IT. Have to replug over 4-5 times only to recharged phone.
I love my Elm. Will use it until Smartphone battery life issue solved.
I have problem when I want to sign in into my facebook account.
They always say 'communication failure, secure connection'.
It started this week.
yeah! this is very good handset i've been using this for 2 years. the bad is usb cable is lost! can somebody tell why it lost?
no, i'm just kidding. no built-in usb cable in the box. :D
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2012how is keypad.. is it durable for long times texting..
is there any problem with earphone ... moreabsolutely, top handset, no issues with keypad for texting, make sure you get yourself a silicone case to prolong , the usage of the phone
an added tip, if you like me, have loads of videos on memory card, i.e music videos by genre in folders and movies by genre in folders, if when you launch media center [on the handset] and you do not want them all bundled together, then move all your folders [regardless of genre] into the videos, podcast sub menu,in file manager, then when you load the media center, and go to podcast, where you will find everything thing will be nicely organized, into the seperate folders that you created earlier. As a result, you can listen / watch music videos continously, without it breaking off and playing in the past the next file in the queue i.e movie, using the old method of just dumping your movies and music in seperate folders in the videos folder in file manager
the camera is top
volume has been increased for audio on last software update, sound on video a little low.
battery is superb, watching movies,23% of bsttery juice equates to 1hr 45 minutes.
syncing with microsoft outlook is a charm, only thing is characters is limitied to, if i can remember 40 to 50
One of the best mobiles I have evr used..the camera rocks..the speaker is not so gud.}bt out of 10 I will rate this phone 7.5

logan, 13 Feb 2012Been using this phone for more than 2 months now.
excellent battery life
no prob with web... morethis is the best 5 mp camera mobile available in market..
just check all ur settings, keep max resolution and keep contrast and brightness as normal for both image and video..
for videos it should be 640x480..
its screen is small so the video may look pixeleted..
just watch your pics and videos on pc (Lcd) its super
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2012heloo how to the video can plays a video @30fps ???? tel me pls plsVideo recording in day light is good with huge details, it is 30 fps VGA. But at night, in artificial light it is annoying as frame rate falls in low light option.
Hi! I'm from kolkata, West Bengal, India. After a thorough research through NET, Purchased a new SE ELM (AS I REALLY HATE TOUCHSCREEN!)for Rs. 7350/ this month. Thanks to GSM-ARENA. And things are going quite well with my new ELM. Its a pretty good handset. Camera are good enough in day light. Details are very good in sunny weather. MACRO Mode as well as PANORAMA Mode is very useful. But there is problem in taking picture in artificial light or its in built flash. Sound is satisfactory. Plenty of options are there to play with new set. No problem in transferring data from my PC. But when it comes to put the name of new contact.... Oh! not enough space there to write a full name even! Its so disgusting!. Can it be solved with installation of new software to my ELM ? Please anyone tell me this if there is any solution. Otherwise an excellent phone within this price range. If you are not interested in touchscreen and prone to photography with MOBILE then SE ELM is your accurate choice. Thanks.
Been using this phone for more than 2 months now.
excellent battery life
no prob with web surfing
GPS takes time to connect
sync with Outlook or Ymail easy
clear reception during phone call
but the camera just doesn't cut it.. yeah it's 5MP but the flash doesn't help at all. even pics taken in rooms with ample light comes out very poor. Video can't even keep up with minimal movements.
