Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Made of recycled material - my primary reason for purchase
Bad points:
No instruction book for all the different features. Left to figure it out for myself - which is fine if you're under 20 and not, if you're not.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It took me 3 to 4 weeks to pick this phone at fisrt i was lyk eco-friendly phone..naaa dont want it. however when i was searching for other phone some phones didnt have the features that i wanted whereas the sony erricson elm had everything i wanted..wifi...5 mega pixel camera...music player...flash and more. the phone itself is great!!! My initial plan was to buy a touch screen phone but reading the reviews many of them said. " o it freezes time to time" "the battery life goes like a flash"..The sony erricson elm...none of that happens the battery life is jus lyk all the other sony erricson's out there. And plus i have an ipod touch so i was like no touch screen phone or gadget can get beeter than this. So i gave in..took a risk..brought the sony erricson elm..and a great end result. no doubt about it.
One thing i would say..the actual accessories you get with the phone in the box is a downfall..so it may lead to investments towards the phone..whereas if your previous phone was a sony erricson and you still have the accessories to that phone you may not need to invest into the phone that much.
So overall...SONY ERRICSON ELM...10 OUT OF 10. No problem with the reception/signal of the phone..battery life...just like the other sony erricson phones out there.
Eco-friendly...NO effect..the phones great!!
