Advantages: Designed with the customer in mind
Disadvantages: Maybe not technical enough for some - not touchscreen
After many years of being loyal to Nokia (why I do not know!), I changed to Sony Ericsson and this is my second phone with this brand.
Now that I have tried Sony Ericsson, I have no idea why I stayed with Nokia for so long.
This particular phone is fairly standard but I don't really need anything that fancy. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera, video camera, light and you can use it as a walkman with your own playlist or radio.
In terms of why I think Sony Ericsson is a great brand of phone is that it seems to have been designed with consumer use in mind. What I mean is that it seems to know what you are going to do with it and assists - ie. in the text messaging, predictive text goes further than just guessing a word. It tries to predict what your sentence may be by using historical information. Although some people might find this so basic and nothing to shout about, I find it a great tool.
The navigation around the phone is also simple and sensical. The calendar and contacts functions have a lot of options within them.
I've had this phone since the start of the year and (touch wood) have had no problems with it. I am on an 18 month contract and got the phone free as part of my upgrade on Orange so not sure how much this would retail for.
All I would say is that the Sony Ericsson phones seem to be designed thinking of the consumer and I would encourage anyone to give them a try.
Summary: Great, reliable, easy to use phone
