this is a great phone! the only thing that really agrivated me was the camera. it is only good in the daytime but at night all of the pictures that i took are blurs. and the contrast on the camera is soooo dark even in the daytime. also there is hardly any memory (for pictures) that i had to delete some pics that came with the phone. it probably can only hold 15-20 pics. unlike the sharp gx20 which my brother has, it can hold around 30-35. so i would rate this phone a 4 out of 5 with the camera quality/memory being the only set-back
Your writting style? I think it's really funny how you feel the need to explain yourself to strangers who don't really care.....
Don't worry Big Panda.
I used to post lots of posts at GSM Arena.. LoL.. Many would remember me as the SE defender :P
Anyway, I'm sure all of you who had actually see my posts would know how I type..
By the way, I just came here to announce something great..
Just upgraded my T610's software to the latest (as of now.. heh..) which is R3 something...
Few differences are that when you play sounds in the 'My Sounds' menu, it doesn't start soft anymore and by pressing the + and - side buttons, you control the volume. Also, when you play a recorded AMR file, it plays via the speaker. So you could change a MP3 to AMR (ratio of 1:0.1) as in a 3mb MP3 would be a 300kb AMR at 112 quality and play it via the speaker. Interesting, but not fantastic as the speaker can't take some frequencies and would vibrate.
Also, another improvements would be the fact that the memory issue of caching and all for the pictures is gone. Now a 20kb picture will REALLY be a 20kb file instead of the high 60 over kb =).
And as for Unkown who claims that I'm big panda?..
Why don't YOU work for Times since you claim to know all THESE things? Maybe you can try pointing fingers at your neighbour and telling the world he's Osama?
It's obvious I'm not him. For starters, his writting style differs from mine. Secondly, I never did once used numbering as point form but instead using dashes...
It is SO COOL!!! I've got one myself... Just LOVE it! I just wish that it didn't get so dusty so easy... And that the camera had a zoom function. But that doesn't mean very much. I'm happy with, what it can do... And that is a lot.
Thanks for that. You obviously have a great deal of knowledge concerning Nokia and SE. Have you ever considered writing for 'The Times'?
This is a Great phone. By the way, Now SonyEricsson mobiles are alot better than Nokia . Nokia Sucks. The main reason for the fame of Nokia is for its Stupid Menu. The Camera of all the SonyEricsson arte perfect ... better than Nokia. i got Nokia 6600 omg what a piece of Shit!!!!!! Bad connection , bad look. The Only Good thing is the Buttons!! and ofcourse the Pen in it!
All in all, Nokia is going down and Sony is going up
Ive owned this phone for a couple of months now and I have no real issues with it. I'll just respond to a few of the cons that ppl repeatedly complain about.
1. the screen. - well it may be out dated but its still a nice display its not the best..but nothing really is. plus viewing it in the sun is not really an issue it has a glossy look but it doesn't completely wash out. also the screen is a little dark but not super dark..there are options to change brightness and contrast..or u can just buy new screen off of an earlier t610.
2. reception is not the best once again but its pretty good. altogether ive had 2 dropped calls in 2 months. this is way better than my old motorolla timeport and nokias. normally i have no reception in my house but once the t610 grabs a bar it hold on to it..plus what do you expect from a phone with an internal antenna anyways?
3. the camera..i think its just plain stupid for people to buy a camera phone...this camera really does suck..but hey it was put in there as a gimmick..i mean the only reason i bought this phone is because of the numerous features (bluetooth!), looks, and price. can't beat the value. honestly, if you're looking for a camera phone look somewhere else..IMHO all camera phones suck. go invest in a real camera.
so therefore, can't beat this phone in value, features, and stlying.
onyl really annoying thing is that it get soooooooooo dirty..which is annoying..but thats not really an issue..
- oh and looking at a lot of other phones this phone is very solidly built full metal casing (aluminum shell i think). i dropped mine on concrete and it bounced a few times and it still works perfectly..my friend dropped his samsung v200? and haha it dead. so yeah thats my opinion. a lot of ppl who write reviews on here don't even own the phone.
i have a data cable and want 2 send tones to my fone from my pc but cant seem 2 do it....is there a particular piece of software i need?if so wot is it. cheers
Can anyone tell me what exacty the differences are between the 630 and the 610? according to this site, they are ngligible, besides the newer look and higher price. thanx a lot.
I think this is the perfect phone. Im going to buy it to my boyfriend for Christmas.Here in Spain it costs 129 euros with vodafone life
how much capacity has it got for photos?does the photos get a lot space??how much??it's the best phone
Yes it's true. The screen is a pretty outdated STN (Super Twisted Nematic) type. It is a type of passive matrix screen. These require backlighting and are noticeably darker than a TFT,TFD, or OLED screen. If you tilt the T610 through a few degrees, you will notice the screen darkens appreciably. It's similar to the way you can't see what's displayed on a laptop screen from certain angles. The camera is not a VGA type either, so it takes very grainy pictures.
is it true that its not that clear, the screen, the pictures when u take em using the phone's cam? can it be fixed if so?
