0. phoneArena posted on 07 Apr 2010, 05:17

The Sony Ericsson Elm is a compact device with a promising feature set and appealing design. However, is the likeable newcomer to the Greenheart Family destined for glory or rather, doomed to join the ranks of the greatest “could have beens”...

Does Elm has splash resistance?

Here are the pro's and cons after using it for a month
>>GOOD camera- crystal clear pics during the day- nice macro. The night shots are blurred and grainy(i think all cellphone cams will have that problem). Amazing number of features/options for using the camera.(picture quality compared against a HTC desire)
>>light and easy to use- you don't have to break your head about trying to figure out what's where. very intuitive.
>>The keypad is nice and big for fat fingers like mine.
>>Decent battery life- for talking about two hours a day+ 10 pics a day+half an hour on the net- your battery will last you for around two days.

>> Slippery- your phone slips out of your hand very easily if your hand's cold or remotely wet.
>>OS hangs sometimes.
>>The search for phone numbers is kind of slow- you have to patiently wait till it recognizes alphabets.
>>No games.
>>when you receive a message it gets partially displayed.This is awful since anyone looking at your phones gets to read it(and there's no way to disable this).
>>you can't send a number from your address book as part of a text message- you have to send a business card separately.
>>The opening of the gallery gets slower as you take more pics- gets irritating after a bit.

Verdict- if you want a good camera phone, a numeric keypad and a candy bar design- this phone's the best in the market for you. For any other features- you may want to rethink.

I have been using ELM for almost 1.5 years. Its a nice phone not outstanding among other phone with same prize tag, but the feel of phone is nice camera and sound can be better as compare to Ericsson standard. Overall a phone for Sony Ericsson lovers not for others. I have with my phone...

This phone sucks.the camera is good but a bit dark & the sound from the loudspeaker is awful. The only good thing about this phone is the keypad,wifi & gps.
