  Sony Ericsson T610 Camera Phone Review

I was attracted to the small size and bluetooth features. I've replaced 3 phones in a month, 2 within the same week. It seems to have a bug where sometimes when you disconnect the charger, it will leave the phone in an unusable state. All the number keys will work but the soft keys, joystick, and power button will not.

    I agree with your comments. My T610 is 8 weeks old, but looks like it's 5 years already. The button text has worn off in my pocket (I remind people, in less than 8 weeks)


    I've just come across the soft-key, joystick and power button problem and took it to our local service centre. They accepted it without questions and told me it's a known problem. I'm now without a phone for the next month - thank you Sony Ericsson


    I should have learnt from mypast experiences I guess. Ericsson used to be really good. I owned a SH888 and R320s which were great in their time. Then things changed. I got a T39m, then a T300 - these were extremely bad phones with multiple software problems and poor build quality.


    I've owned and used many phones in my time - Nokia, Ericsson, Sony Ericsson, Sagem, Trium, Motorola, Sendo, Alcatel, Siemens, etc. as my work is based in the telecoms industry. My advice (certainly I will be sticking by it from now on) - only ever buy Nokia! - they might not be as cool as the latest Samsung or Sony Ericsson, but their software is first class and build quality far above the competition! The Nokia's I have owned (1610, 3310, 6310i and 6610) were absolutely flawless and lasted years with very few signs of wear.
