Sony Ericsson T310 review

 Review: September 2003  
 

Rating:

In a nutshell: A very basic colour phone.

 

The Sony Ericsson T310 is the successor to the Sony Ericsson T300. The main difference between the T300 and T310 is the physical appearance of the phone. The Sony Ericsson T310 features a new squarer, slimmer design that is perhaps smarter and easier to hold than the more rounded T300. The colour scheme is also new, with contrasting colours like the T610, as opposed to the pastel colours that Sony Ericsson has used in previous phones. Build quality is very solid.

Apart from the exterior changes, the T310 is otherwise very similar to the T300, although the software has been updated, with faster response times. New games have also been made available for the T310. The Sony Ericsson T310 is a good basic multimedia phone with optional plug-in camera, polyphonic ringtones, and a changeable front cover. However, reliability and reception can be quite poor.

Sony Ericsson T310 features include:

  • Colour display (256 colours, 101 x 80 pixels)
  • WAP (GPRS), email
  • High Speed Data (HSCSD - up to 28.8 kbps)
  • Optional snap-on camera (CommuniCam™)
  • Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS) & Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) - send pictures and sound like text messages
  • Downloadable polyphonic & mono ringtones (32 voice), plus ringtone editor
  • Mobile chat
  • Predictive text input (T9)
  • Built-in modem
  • Voice dialling
  • Picture phone book
  • Downloadable games
  • Exchangeable covers
  • Background picture
  • Calculator, calendar
  • Size: 104 x 49 x 19 mm
  • Weight: 97g
  • Battery standby: 400 hours
  • Battery talktime: 11 hours
  • Vibration alert
  • Tri band

I hated this phone. I thought it was rubbish. I now have a much better phone, the w300i. This is a much better phone. I think you should all go and get this phone instead because the t310 is junk.

25 months ago, I bought this brick! I was contemplating on getting a T68i, a Nokia 3530 or this one. I don't know why but I ended up with this thing. I call it the missing link and just as ugly. Calls get dropped with no reason even if I change providers. Speaker slit lets in all sorts of dirt and dust. The sound is so darn soft! Can't see much in broad daylight. After I find a phone backup program this bar is history! Sony-Ericsson didn't even bother writing a driver for this thing, it is recognized as T300. ZITS! T310 is a limbo model

Although it's my mum's phone iuse alot because she is quite old and doesn't care about technology. It's quite a good phone with the usual demands, and a slim body. Apart from the looks it is getting quite old-fashioned. I have to say that I do have high expectations but I mean, c'mon WHO LIKES A PHONE WITH A 256 COLOR DISPLAY. You'll probably tell me that it is good enough for the average user and you're right. So that's why I'm putting three stars.

Bought it in early 2004 and unfortunately I cannot use it anymore due to signal loss. I tried to fix it in SE service centre. Their suggestion was to replace all the inside board and it cost me as high as the second hand T310. I'm very dissapointed with that. From some websites I know that there are some signal loss problems with SE model (T66, T600)in other countries also. Another problem with this phone (and also other SE models) is the heat created from the speaker when we talk more than a couple of minutes.

I've had a T310 for just over a year now. To be honest, I've been quite dissapointed with it. Before I bought it, I had a Nokia 3310, which never broke, was robust, and easy to use. The T310, although alright overall, has had several problems. The back cover tends to fall off from the smallest touch, and because the battery automatically comes out when the back cover comes off, this turns the phone off. The phone to sim connection is poor; several times my list of contacts has been semi-deleted (the names and numbers are lost, but an undeletable blank name is left). The reception is also poor, I can't make a call from my house, and I live in south east England, so its hardly a black spot. I think that if you are considering buying this phone, you look elsewhere, perhaps at a Nokia 3510i (similar) or an upgrade to the T610.

I bought this phone just over a year ago and I have had no problems with it. My only gripe is that it takes a while to load the games and Hi-Fi ringtones are all the rage now. The Tony Hawk game is good, but Ace of spades is extremely additctive and there is sony ericcson's flagship game MiniGolf. Considering the phone came out last summer it still surpasses other phones which have been released since such as Siemens' entire 60series, Sony Ericsson's poor follow up T230 and many nokia phones. I love Sony Ericssons free downloadable games and ringtones. The t310 has now passed its baton onto the new k500 but the phone will probably remain as one of the best Sony Ericsson models.

I have owned this phone for 8 months and I think it's OK. It's better than my previous Ericsson, but I think that the new T610 or T630 is much better. Good things about this phone: 1) great looking stylish metal case 2) joystick 3) colour screen 4) good value. Bad things: 1) reception is a bit dodgy 2) can't transfer numbers from the phone's memory to the sim card 3) ringtones are boring. This phone is pretty cheap, however, so I think that it's worth looking at if money is tight. Not a bad first mobile, and different to all the Nokias what everyone else has.

Sleek, feature-rich, convenient to handle, classy and affordable. And sturdy too! Mine has taken a few rough falls & survived(touchwood!) The joystick is a great feature. But it could improve on some features though. No1 -User-friendliness. Its very cumbersome to reply to sms; one has to select so many options! And sms/mms alerts are too soft to be heard. There are hardly any options for alert tunes either. But overall-GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY

ok, when i orderd this phone off the internet, i at first, thought to be quite good and overall a good buy. After a couple of DAYS, i receved an email telling me the charger needed to be recalled due to a preddure build up in the plud, thus being a fire hazzard. Fair enough and whithin a couple of days Sony Ericsson colected the faulty charger. that was alright but unknowingly, i would not receive a replacement charger for 4 weeks due to 'overwhelming demand for the recall part'. In this time, i was left without a telephone and ofter calling up 6-7 times finnaly received a charger. For a while my phone was alright but then, just a couple of months later my phone somtimes swiched itself off and still does today. Other problems i have had are that the screen had started to crack at the top, the battery cover comes off regularly and just recently the; 1,4,6,8 buttons and the joystick somtimes also stop working randomly. Overall, this phone aint rite good, but it does provide some fun when playing catch (with it)!

Pros: Cheap, well built Cons: Poor screen, slow menu, manky charger, terrible reception I've had this phone for a year now, but I was very glad when I received my new phone after extending my contract. Let me explain why: Allthough the T310 feels solid enough, the volume adjuster on the side looks like it came from my Lego set. After some use the charger often fails to connect properly to the phone and the menu really is awfully slow. The screen has 256 colors, but they are not very vivid and the resolution is not great either. But the worst thing is that when I frequent areas where my operators coverage is sub-optimal, I either don't receive any calls or I lose calls in mid conversation. My friends all use the same operator as I do and they never have any reception problems in the same areas where I lose calls (of course they also don't have the T310). On the other hand, I must say that the phone was rather cheap. And I must admit I was quite impressed when it stayed in one piece after I'd thrown it out the window (only the battery cover came off). In conclusion: Avoid this phone at all cost!

Good things: The joystick makes your life much easier though it does take some time to adjust to it - especially if you've been using Nokia phones. Calls are amazingly clear even if the network signal is weak. And despite its cheap price, it contains a wide variety of features (just check the previous page). Finally, I like its "intelligent" features such as vibrate when silent and auto keypad lock. And I found out that when you set an alarm, it will still set off even when the phone is turned off! Amazing... Bad things: Noisy keypad - here's an analogy: Samsung's and Nokia's keypad:laptop keyboard is to SE T310:typewriter. For other people, the resolution is poor. But I don't mind. Personally, I'd rather buy a real digital camera than buy the camera attachment. Why? Because pictures taken by the cheapest digital camera are way better than those by a camera phone! All in all, I find the T310 a good buy!

While I agree with many of the reviews here regarding the features of the T310, I must point out what I feel to be a few of its weaknesses. From the outset I have found the phone to be a little overworked. Simple things like inputting text too quickly seem to cause my handset problems as the predictive dictionary gets about four words behind me before coming up with completely the wrong text. The handset has on several occasions crashed whilst running the games and the speed of menu navigation is unbearable as I wait for ages for the option I have selected to actually open. The phone is incredible value for money but if I'd know I'd have to sacrifice so much performance for the sake of some silly tunes that are far far too quiet and a very poor screen resolution I'd happily have stuck with my old faithful black and white Nokia. In short, you can't get Pentium 3 performance from a 486. Mind you, if you were to spend a bit of extra cash and go for the T610 you'd be in posession of a true mobile work of art.

People talk about this and that when it comes to the Sony Ericsson T310. Some say poor graphics because of it\'s 256 (8-bit) colour screen and slow response times. Well I say this, if the screen had more colours and if it had a TFT instead of passive matrix then the price would be sky high and then it would have to contend in the high end phone market which means that less people would see the beauty of the phone\'s features because many people are not going to fork out a lot of money to buy cell phones these days. In my opinion the phone is a masterpiece considering the fact that it\'s a level entry phone which is able to compete with some high end phones. Sony & Ericsson has put a lot of work into the screen despite the small amount of colours. The majority of the graphics are clear, especially downloaded pictures which is surprising for a 256 colour screen. If you people want to criticise then complain about Nokia\'s worthless 3530 which has 4096 colours and shows picture! s horribly. I have compared many photos and animated pictures with a SE-T310 (256 colour screen) and the Nokia 3530 (4096 colour screen) and the Nokia 3530 CAN\'T come close. Surfing the web on the SE-T310 is beautiful compared to many other phones as well, WAP 2.0 is tuff. I won\'t even get into the SOUND SYSTEM area where SE-T310 has a 32 channel/chord/tone polyphonic system whereas other level entry phones AND HIGH END phones only feature a 4/8/16 channel/chord/tone (most Nokias has 4 channels, only the series 60 comes with 24 channels)polyphonic system. Whatever the case, the fact that most high end and really expensive phones doesn\'t go up to 32 channels like the Nokia 7650 & 3650 which has 24 channels, the Sony Ericsson is the best phone you could get a such a giveaway price. The gaming platform is also one of the best. People, need I say more ???

This little phone is amazing! The colour screen makes all other new phones look like junk. The games and ringtones are great. I love the free Composer program because I can write my own ringtones. The only problem with it is that the ringtones are a little bit quiet but you can turn it up. The phone has an excellent design and it easy to hold. The enclosed battery is very attractive. My friends are all jealous of me and my T310. I recommend this great cell phone to all young teens like myself just because it is colourful and fun. Also, the batteries last an incredable length of time so you don't have to charge it very often.

The phone is very good. I am writing the problems in the phone. 1. Quick Dialing. When you change/add a number for quick dialling, it forces you to copy the entire phone book on the phone memory to sim card. As a result, the advantage of additional 250 numbers on sim is lost. 2. Insert No/Name in SMS. This is a feature which I miss a lot. Now you have to go to manage contact and send it. It is not stored even in out box. 3. Insert no in sms. You need to hold the number key for few seconds, then the number appears. I dont think it has been documented. 4. Infrared - The internet connection(GPRS) through infrared is very slow when compared to Cable. 5. Call from sim/phone memory: This option is missing. So if you have more than 250 numbers, then u need to go to 'call from sim' option every time.

this is by far the coolest phone in the entire world... even more so than the disappointingly ugly T-610. The games are great, i've had no problems with the volume of the ringtones or fragility. if you are wondering whether or not to buy this handset... just look at the other consumer reviews! (it's easily better than the 3-star rating given by the site)

I got the phone yesterday and it is excellent. It's attractive and very clever and interactive. Only problem is the fact that the ringtones are a bit quite. But it is great and i think it beats the expensive samsung flip phones. :)

This unit is amazing. In comparison to other phones in its category, the T310 is way ahead in its class. Feature for feature, this phone gives the consumers the best value for money. The color display and resolution is decent enough for a small phone and takes pictures well which looks even better when downloaded to your laptop or pc (better than Nokias in this category). I also beamed polyphonic ringtones from the T310 to my Nokia 6610 & 3650 and to be honest, the files sound better on the T310. Overall, I would recommend this phone. It is reasonably priced, handy, stylish and packed with features that is hard to beat. :)

I think the phone is really good especially when it comes to its battery and calls.It very crisp and clear. The design is also but the downside is it resolution but when you upload it on email its a lot better than photos taken with nokia phone except high end nokia phone. I think the phone is really good for people who's hip.

This phone is great value for money, but my main problem is the polyphonic ringtones are way too quiet. If I'm at a party or a remotely noisy room, i can't hear a thing.

I had this model for the past one & a half month, It has all the ingredients to be a very successful phone. It deserves for 5 stars. It is having so decent look which impress any person standing near to you, moreover the presentation of predefined birthday, invitation,etc templates are so impressive that the reciever of these templates will plan to buy this phone only, also it is having dolby surrounding sound which nokia phones don\'t have.

I have bought this phone recently and i am more than impressed with it for $389 dollers it has a a good resoulution but the 256 (8 bit) colors could be boosted to a 4096 (12 bit) the joystick is a breeze to speed through the menus. I also got a clip on camera with the phone its it good resoulution 640x380 for mms or email but the phones 256 colors doesnt look to colorful enough. The 32 bit polyphonic ring tones a frigen good compared to most nokias i was impressed. the phone has a good battery with over 400 hours standby and 11 hours talktime compared to the nokia 3530 wich is like 100 hours standby. The only problem I have with this phone and heaps of other phones is the phone U.I is a bit slow like i press a botton and it comes up on the screen a bit later. I recomened this phone to teenagers because they take it to school and there all got a 3315 and there like so jelouse if they see you with a t310.

got this phone recently. real value for money. the battery gives a decent performance(4-5 days avg.). build quality is also above par. the buttons give excellent tactile feedback ( for a sms junky like me, typing away at lightning speeds ) though they need a little 'push'. great contrasting colour screen despite only 256 colours. pop client and all. sony ericsson claim availability of changeable style-up covers ( face-plates ), but i haven't been able to find one here yet ( it's available on ebay though ) talk about support! even sony showroom doesn't have it. of course we don't expect 'nokia-ish' following for T310, but they should at least make available what they claim. the screen is slightly bulging, and a rough handler like me would make it ask for replacement within a few months of use. all in all a really good choice. much much more value than a similarly priced nokia.

I replaced my samsung with T310. The it is a great little phone with a daam easy way to navigate the menus. All the features including the resolution of the screen is great. The battery time is pretty good (if you dont use the phone for playing games all the way) I have not found any problem with it (:) i have little time to play). The two features that i found unacceptable are the buttons, they are not smooth and dont feel solid. It seems they will comeoff. Hope sony changes it. In addition the ringtones are no way close to samsung.

I bought this phone for USD $ 200 in India. Overall phone is good and comes up with bundeled software at very acceptable price. Battry is also nice, in average working conditions it holds upto 4-5 days. Only problem which i have seen is that while using heavy wallpapers and theames, navigatition through menu becomes little sluggish. Overall a cute-nice phone at excellent price.

agreeing with the review that rates the sony ericsson t310 as excellent,i hitch at a very vital point that must be considered in rating any advanced cellular phone - its battery life.the battery life of the mentioned model is disappointingly short and hence i changed my mind to rate it at just good instead of an excellent.

When I bought the T310, it came in a box with the handset, standard charger and the MCA-25 camera. It cost me 89 on Orange 'Pay as you go' at www.cyren-communications.co.uk When I first turned on the phone it showed an animated sony ericsson logo and then by pressing the joystick the menu appeared. It wasent an ordinary menu, all the icons were displayed at the same time. From here I could go into: - Phone book, messages, calls, fun & media, settings, communications, calender and other connection settings. I found it easy to browse the menus and texting was easy with T9 and the easy to press keys. When I used the camera it was decent in good light but the quality was below average in normal light conditions such as a room. It only features a 256 colour screen, but its good enough for quick snap shots to send via mms and email. The main features were: - Coloured Screen Picture Messaging Good Memory to download ringtones etc 32 bit Polyphonic Ringtones The only disadvantage was the 256 colour screen but do you really need a 70,000 colour screen just to send a quick snapshot? = NO The size was normal, compared to the Nokias its quite small but its larger than the latest flip phones. I recommend this phone to anyone who wants a phone with loads of features at a budget price. If you want a phone to take professional photos, then buy the Samsung V200. But for fun, get the T310.
