Does Elm has splash resistance?

Here are the pro's and cons after using it for a month Pros- >>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. Cons- >> 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.
