Sony Ericsson Elm
Advantages: Nice quality camera, easy to use, handy feature.
Disadvantages: Fragile casing, software can glitch.
On looks, the phone looks sturdy with a nicely sized screen which is of excellent quality. The buttons are nice and easy to use, but it is easy to press the wrong button when texting quickly. The mirror around the screen on the silver version of the phone is a nice touch however, it get grubby very quickly. The metal material on the back casing adds to the sturdy appearance to the phone. The back casing is really hard to remove if you don't have nails.
The phone's operating system is very easy to use. It has some nice features that are great for people who are interested in travel and hiking. It has google maps installed and has a built in pedometer. It also caters for social networkers who use Myspace, Twitter and Facebook.
The camera is really not bad for the price of the phone and the quality of the speakers is slightly above average for a phone.
The battery life is nothing to shout about but when in need of a charge up, plugging it into a computer via usb will stop the phone from being able to be used, I found this annoying when I have been keeping the phone charged up because I've been waiting for an important call or text.
the phone get very slow if you get so many messages and the casing gets damaged very easily.
Overall, I find this phone average. It isn't good and it isn't bad. For someone who isn't going to use the phone much and/or takes great care of their things. Ideal for walkers or people who enjoy traveling.
Summary: Overall.. not bad!
