Sony Ericsson T310 review
| ||Review: September 2003
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

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.

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

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

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)

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.

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.

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

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.
