The Sony Ericsson C510 has a decent camera and seemly price


As previously mentioned, the Sony Ericsson C510 utilizes one and the same software like the one on the C905. Perhaps it proves a bit of an uphill battle to the device, since the device slows down and lags at times. We didn´t encounter any problems regarding in-call quality, but we can´t exactly say it is the best we have ever witnessed. The phone delivers sound that is a bit weak, although voices of people are real and intelligible, although interlocutors complained the sound on their end was excessively strong and they failed to catch onto what were saying at times.


The Sony Ericsson C510 brings along all good distinguishing marks characteristic of all devices by the same manufacturer, such as robust battery that lasts (10 hrs talk time and 400 hrs in standby). Unfortunately, snapshot quality is the same as the old (but gold) Sony Ericsson K800. Still, the elegant and stylish design, revamped interface and capable browser make for a decent option to anyone on the lookout for a simpler phone with decent camera and seemly price.


  • Comfy and easy to use
  • Excellent browser
  • Smiling face detection technology
  • Passable quality of outdoor pictures


  • Forget about snapshots indoors
  • Doesn´t bring out anything new alongside of previous 3-megapixel phones
  • Unfit for video playback

After two years of using it, the glue that keeps screen covering glass to the case greased out onto the screen making it look disgusting. It was easy fixable though. Other than that (and several scratches - blame the user) phone works as new.
Forget all those specially secured against dust and moisture sets - this phone was in dust and moisture environment, hit the (concrete) floor several times.
It is a good phone, feature wise and looks ok too.
Makes exceptional backup set for slow and battery hungry smart phones.
If it had 3.5" jack + microUSB charger port it would be perfect (damn you SE for your "Fast port"!).
