Shaun, Brussels

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It has all options, MS Office, Gps, and a good software offer for windows mobile. The battery life is excellent, plus it can be charged through USB cable while synchronising with the computer.
Bad points:
Well it's not like regular mobiles which can be handled with one hand, here both hands are required for manipulation, plus it's a bit heavy.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The panel system is quite good, allowing user to switch desktop.
Sound quality is OK, better than my previous one.
It is very clever for Sony Ericsson to give SPB Mobile Shell for free (or the handset would be almost unusable due to the silly Windows Mobile UI).
The FM radio is good.
Bad points:
Slide-out keyboard is almost useless, lots of keys missing, hard to press, brainless design.
Battery does not last for long, even when the phone is not in use.
Icons are tiny, hard to tap with fingers (fixed by SPB Mobile Shell).
Video playback is lagging.
Does not have a g-sensor; rotating screen is complex.
The switch-on splash screen is stupid (I am trying to get rid of it to make boot-up faster).

Michael, Whitstable. Kent Business or web user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
First time used this type of phone so bit tricky at first finding my way around as it's completely different to a normal mobile phone, but once I got into it found it very good and fairly easy to use. Bit worried about negative reviews at time of purchase but after using the phone for 3 weeks now am very pleased with it and have no issues or problems. Needed to refer to user instructions several times to find how to use certain features or settings but the more I use it the easier it becomes. Overall very satisfied with it.
Bad points:
Need to refer to user instructions to find how to use certain features or settings which would be straight forward on normal mobile phone. Screen goes blank whilst in phone conversation which is a nuisance if you need to access key pad during call, unable to find a way of altering this action. Signal strength for receiving calls is not as good as previous SE phones I've owned.
