I just bought my first sony ericsson after the w850i which was a sweet experience. People have always had problems with sony ericssons for one reason or another, but til now the phone has given me no reason to be unhappy. Brilliant battery life, great mp3 player(the walkman 4.0) and an above average camera. The picture quality is great outdoors but indoors it feels slightly dull, nothing the photo fix feature cant fix though. The macro mode takes amazing close up shots. If u are an avid music fan get the hpm70 units from amazon for £3. And the keypad is great, i could text quicker on it than my android spica(touch screen). This is better than all the other nokia s40s out there simply becus it has semi multitasking(like the iOS theoretically) and a great all round phone with all forms of connectivity. If u dont want to spend too much and want a phone that does it all, get this. Btter than all the cheap touch screens out there, better than them by a mile.
J10i2, 10 Jan 2011What is audio book? Where can I get it? Anyone answer me please.long audio files in 'm4b' formats. In the music player it starts from where it has been stopped. You can create audio books by combining any audio files, using software. File size seems to have reduced. This is as much as I know.
this phone has everything you need except for the operating system(which has java based proprietery os) .. the camera quality is good if you check it in your computer..its quality is superb ....sound quality is less in loudspeaker but good when heard in earphones....wi fi and gps is superb and youtube, twitter facebook application are a great additions.. you own it and you are sure to be a surprised....only one negative point is that it doesnt have front camera for video calling...
subhash meena, 10 Jan 2011this mobile video calling possible??Video calling is possible using the rear camera. You can see the caller and the caller can see what your phone's main camera sees. But since Elm has NO FRONT CAMERA, it is practically difficult to see each other and speak.
(If the caller also has an elm, both of you can watch the person opposite while you talk. What an idea SE!! You only know how to make a full featured phone handicapped)
its price is 8200rs its a bad phone the camera clarity is not good .. display is some what ok ... better go for other phones
to those hu says dat dis fn is useless..its u hu is useless... u dnt kno hw to use da fne properly...i hav been using it 4 qiute smtime...n i say it rocks...if u complain abt da cam...well...i say it has gt a great cam...all u have to do is adjust the white bal..exposure..properly...n shoot in 5mp mode... n zoom l8er when ur viewing da photo....
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2011Today I got elm. I am not satisfied with screen brightness and viewing angle. Camera is good i... moresame keypad problem with mine.. i thought it was a unique case. But we will get used to it.. it's no problem anyway. elm is great.
I've been using this mobile for five months. So my opinion is, if you want a low price but valuable phone, then go for this.
Phone functions are really great and work well without hanging. And the main thing is it's very user friendly.
I heard that some people are telling that the camera isn't good. But for me, its awesome. Clearlity is very high and as well as it gives an excellant quality. I also have SE Cyber shot k800i. But when I compare both devices, Elm takes the first place. But in low light condition and speedy events, cyber shot takes the first place without any doubt.
Battery last for only one day because i use internet more than 4 hours per day. If not, i can keep the mobile for two and half days without charging.
All other functions are working very well. Specially messaging and calling.
So i'm pretty enough with my Elm. If there is a gadget you called mobile, it's Elm!
(Sorry for my bad English)
hi guys i m having problem with video making.still shots are taken but as soon as i press camera button for video it came to home screen camera mode shut down
elm is one of the worst phone for its price. Camera is worst compared to yari.i am having yari also. Its screen is superb and I am very happy with its camera. I am getting blue and orange lines in elm camera. This happens when you increase the brightness in low light areas and also colours are dull.what is use of 5mp camera if we cant use indoors.
I BUYED MY ELM at 90000rs recently every thing is nice but camara is not good is their any changes to do ti improve camara clarity
JAWAD AHMED, 05 Jan 2011Well I have been using sony ericsson sets since 2003..ranging from W810i,K750,K810,K850,C901 a... moreElm uses version 4.9 themes and may not support lower versions. You can download from the web- here is one source;
Or with Sony Ericsson themes creator, You can convert lower version themes to 4.9 and transfer to Elm. (In this version, there are many more areas of customisation like Event background/text, application background, application highlight, input background etc). You can get themes creator here;
Today I got elm. I am not satisfied with screen brightness and viewing angle. Camera is good in good lighting condition but worthless in low light and indoors. Yari or c5 are much better than elm camera in low light condition.flash of elm is weaker than yari.another great disappoint is it dont have manual equilizer and it has only 5 equilizer presets. Keypad is good but * key makes more taping sound than other keys. And very thing else is very good.
This phone rules.I have if for 6 months. You can do everything: browse, listen, watch photos at the same time. The camera is just awsome. Pictures are so clear, only nights shots will be a lttile dark. My battery last 7 days at normal use(some music, few calls, 5 messages). Not to mention the Wi-Fi-you can connect with internet where wirless. A little about the sound: very clear and enough loud, typing is easy,mobile phone is light and small, never hangs!! BUY IT you will never regrette. Screw ouch screen phones. All you need is sony Ericsson Elm
