The last few phones I've had were the Nokia 6210 and 8850, then a Panasonic GD93 when the 8850 got stolen! I had been using the GD93 since November 2002 and it has taken me since then to find a phone i thought i would be happy with.
I have not been dissapointed in the Sony Ericsson T610, having had it 3 weeks it has been nothing but a pleasure to use. The navigation and text messaging will take a while to get used to for anyone who is changing from a non-SonyEricsson phone but once mastered... (read more)

I have only had the Sony Ericsson T610 for just over 24 hours after procrastinating over the Panasonic GD88 and this phone. After looking at this site and seeing the rating of the t610 compared to the GD88 and also the help of the very informative people on this forum I have now settled on the T610!
The colour screen is fantastic, the camera is pretty clear, and the menus are like little mazes, you click on an icon and out comes another 10 submenus! Two things annoyed about it though.. the... (read more)

I do not have much confidence in my Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone anymore ever since i bought the T28 with the AUTO flap down. But I decided to give them a chance as they have combined the best TV company Sony and... they give more than i want! Clear pics taken from camera (much better resolution than 7650), bluetooth enable which allows me to transfer my pics n ringtones to my pc, light and small, moving at such a high speed whenever i m using GPRS and best of all... i can have my own...

I would consider getting a different mobile phone as I am not happy with the reception of this phone at all. I have been using Ericsson and Nokia phones alot and I have compared this phone with the T39m and Nokia 2210 and they both come up a lot better in the reception than the T610.
I really do not think that it is that great a phone unfortunately. (read more)

I have read the reviews from Road Warrior and I have to say "Big up" to him because his comments were spot on. I have had the Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone only a few days after having the Sharp GX10 for 4 months. The GX10 is a fantastic phone but the lack of calendar alarms or reminder alarms was just too big to get over. Plus with my US trip later in the year I wanted a Tri Band. I know the GX10 has been updated twice since I bought it (how annoying is that!) but it still hasn't fixed... (read more)

Well, not much I can say here, as many reviewers already stated, that this Sony Ericsson T160 is the best mobile phone in the world for now. I couldn't agree more with those opinions.
Finally, a few words I can say, I just bought my T160 last week and its getting better everytime I play with it. So, buy yourself one! :)

I was using the Nokia 8310 and upgrade to the Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone. The first thing which struck me was the colour screen. In that you can not see it outdoors! The next thing was unintuative the phone is. You have to navigate at least 4 menus before you can enter a persons number in!
So far I am totally unimpressed with this phone and wish I'd stayed with the trusty Nokia 8310. (read more)

I've had the Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone for about 2 weeks now, it has reached and in most cases exceeded my expectations. The menu is joy to use, though the joystick does take some getting used to. Im impressed with the camera, good quality (for a phone). I recommend to anyone to get bluetooth (significantly shortens battery life) connection over a physical wire. The ease of use and connectivity is far better.
The screen is brilliant in most conditions but is difficult to see in bright... (read more)

This is a great phone, even coming from Nokia (the Ford of the phone world!) Easy to get used to and joystick controller is a great idea.
However can anyone tell me if you can get a cover that you can operate joystick through?
Also, can i get a data lead to download pictures to my PC, where and at what cost? Any help appreciated. (read more)

I wrote a review of the t610 earlier however i think i was a little bit to brief. The t610 is an amazing phone!! Every time i use the phone i find out something new that it can do - it just keeps surprising me! Because the handset is made from aluminium it feels expensive and the buttons are great to press,(they are nice and clunky, you know when youve pressed them). A lot of people have complained about the "fidly" joystick but i cant complain about it in anyway. Its much easier to use... (read more)

Was relieved to see the phone was marked 03W23 and so is hiss free.
Did not take long to get used to the menu layout and use all the numerous funtions the phone has to offer.
Bluetooth is a step forward but really the only way of communicating between phone and PC. If you have anything other than the latest PC you'll have to buy a bluetooth adapter.
The only disappointing aspect is the camera. The quality of images are slightly grainy and dark. Particularly under artificial light. Daylight... (read more)

We all remember when the t68 reached the market and everyone's mouth dropped. Well, I have to say Sony Ericsson has done is again. This phone has almost every feature you can think of integrated together in a way thought by many as not possible. Well, finally after 21 months in development and over 2 years since t68 was launched its replacement has arrived. I would highly recommend this phone to the high end mobile phone user as well as the normal user who can appreciate all this phone has... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T610 is absolutely fantastic! The only thing I would like to make people aware of is that it scratches really easily. The screen and the body of the phone are really fragile so be careful! (read more)

I was unsure about going non-nokia. The last time I did, it was to a Motorola V66, a terrible phone. But I'm very glad I did, upgrading, in the end, from a 6210.
If you are completely wedded to the nokia menu system, you'll hate this because it's different. However, it is quite easy to learn. And worth doing, because the phone is so much fun, has such a lot of functionality (Bluetooth and IR connectivity, Java downloads, built in camera etc etc...) that it really is the ultimate phone to...

All in all, having been a Nokia boy for many years, it would take something special to convert me to Sony Ericsson, and the T610 is it. It contains about everything I need in a phone, even the camera is a good gimmick, even if no replacement for a proper digital camera.
The e-mail client is a revelation, and on GPRS is almost instantaneous! Not much to say against it rather than the top surface gets a bit greasy after a few days handling, and the screen is tough to read at times on a sunny... (read more)

I had high hopes for this phone - but it is one of the worst pieces of technology I have ever had the misfortune to use. The navigation on this phone is utterly dire and this problem is compounded by a delay - you press a button or toggle the joystick and there is a 3-4 second delay before anything happens. The software package that comes with the phone is very tricky to load up and the synching function is terrible - I ended up having to do a master reboot onto the phone - and managed to... (read more)

This Sony Ericsson T610 is an exellent phone well built and reliably with the newer models having all problems ironed out i would have no reason to fault this phone what so ever ..but buy the phone sim free if possible as it will have full memory capacity (stupid, old vodafone) (read more)

At first glance the Sony T610 looks like just another executive toy, all brushed aluminium and smoked glass. But make no mistake, this is a powerful piece of kit. Erik Ahlgren's sleek design is packed with features such as a full colour 65K display, tri-band, GPRS, Bluetooth, MMS messageing, WAP, T9 predictive texting AND a good quality built-in camera, all of which makes the T610 an awesome mobile phone.
At just 95 grams the phone is light enough to slip into your (designer) shirt pocket... (read more)
