Stephen, Paisley Business or web user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works day in day out and is nice to use. Camera is good for a small reasonably priced mobile phone when taking pictures in good (i.e. bright) lighting conditions. Overall ergonomics of phone is good. Buttons on side are easy to operate yet are not easily accidentally activated. Audio quality of phone is good. Loudspeaker is adequate but sound quality with decent headphones is amazingly good. Although screen is small (I wanted a small phone), the sharpness, brightness, contrast of screen coupled with easy ability to zoom in means I have no problems using is - even without my reading glasses! Touchscreen is very good - easy to zoom and keyboard for text entry is surprisingly good for such a small screen/keyboard. Loaded Sony/Talkmobile Android Apps are nice and are easy to use.
Bad points:
The only fault I suspect that has developed on the phone is that the audio output from speaker seems to be slightly distorted at higher volumes. I should probably return it under warranty but haven't bothered as it's only a slight nuisance. I have had this on phones before after I've used them a while and wonder if designers just expect too much of the tiny speakers?? The only other gripe is that I have not had much luck taking indoor pictures with flash. Can't expect too much of a phone vs. proper camera. However, I have had older phones that seemed to take better flash pic's.
