A stylish phone to look at, pretty nice size, and I like the menu layouts.
You can't see the screen in sunlight. The joystick can be fiddly when trying to move it upwards, and the camera isn't as good as on some phones. It can also be slow when first switched on.
When you first turn the Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone on, you can't get to the messaging section for about ten seconds. If you press the buttons loads of times, it remembers every move, so when it wakes up it will go through each of those presses first!! Once on though, it is fine, and the menu is good. However, if you have gone down too far and want to scroll up again using the joystick, it can be very fiddly, and will select the thing you don't want. In bright sunlight you can't see the screen unless you shade it a bit first.
The design is good, and the shell is tough. I have dropped it a few times, and nothing has broken, it is just a bit scratched.
It is pretty easy to use. The screen is strong. The reception is generally good, and it has a lot of features too.
I went through a period when the phone kept doing crazy things like cutting me off before calling, and in the middle of calls, and other odd things.
I recommend Orange.
