Sony Ericsson T610 review

 Review: July 2003  


In a nutshell: Camera phone with Bluetooth.


The Sony Ericsson T610 is a sophisticated phone incorporating a built-in camera, Bluetooth™ wireless technology, a large colour screen and a new graphical user interface.

The T610 is beautifully designed and built, with a square retro-feel and anodised aluminium case; it's a phone that feels good in the hand and seems to be solidly built. The panels are changeable, so you can choose the colour of the phone.

The integrated camera can be activated in one click, with one more click to take a picture. Sony Ericsson's new QuickShare™ technology enables you to easily share pictures with your PC or other phones, using Bluetooth™, email, MMS or data cable. Sony Ericsson's free Image Editor software lets you edit photos taken using the phone. You can also download software to help you create your own Muiltimedia Messages (follow the same link).

The high-resolution screen is of high quality, with 65,000 colours and plenty of space for the new graphical user interface, making the advanced features of the phone easily accesible. Great for use with the camera and for WAP browsing, although the screen can be difficult to read in sunlight. Soft keys and menu hotlinks also help to make the phone user-friendly - a key consideration in a phone that packs in so many features. Animated icons help to bring the menu to life.

The T610 includes a set of embedded games, and you can download more games using the Java and Mophun platforms. The Entertainment menu includes links to gaming websites, so that you can easily download more games. With 65,000 colours and a joystick, the T610 makes a great gaming platform.

Accessories available for the T610 include Bluetooth headsets, Bluetooth car kits and Bluetooth media viewers. The media viewer plugs into a TV and lets you display photos and other images from your T610 on the TV screen. You can also use it to play MP3 files using the TV's loudspeakers.

The T610 has now been replaced by the newer T630 and K700i, which outclass the T610 in a number of significant ways.

Sony Ericsson T610 features include:

  • Colour display (65,536 colours, 128 x 160 pixels)
  • Integrated camera
  • Bluetooth™, infrared and RS232 cable connectivity
  • Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) - send pictures and sound like text messages

  • Speed dialling & voice dialling

  • Wallpaper, screensaver and themes - all downloadable

I had a T610, the only sony ericsson I would ever buy over and over. I sold it, along with all the others I sell every 12 months, I miss it, and have managed to partly replace its memory with the Nokia 6300. My prefered brand every time, had 3 sony's, will never have them again as I find the choice of rings and general appearance of the phones clumsy.

I have had this phone for nearly five years and only now is the battery running low after three days or so. I have bounced this phone so many times on every surface (not on purpose!) and it survived every time. As a gardener it has been rained on, covered in mud, compost and gravel and generally mistreated but it still goes on. I absolutely love it and I will miss it when it has to go but so far I haven't found anything that looks and feels like it's going to take the same treatment and come out smelling of roses.

Even though this phone is now old.. the list of features is remarkable for the T610 and the only thing really lacking in the phone is an SD Card for extra memory as this model only has 2 Meg. The infrared is outdated feature not really required for connectivity with the bluetooth option and the advanced features are excellent like voice commands dialling and speed dialling.

Sony Ericsson T610. Well it is ok. I like the design and Menu layout but the phone just annoyed me. The camera quality is bad. No video recording. My sound Recorder has selfishly stopped working. Doesn't record anything. Screen is so bad, i can't make pictures out properly. Very slow navigation. When I press the menu button, the menu comes up after a while, then when i press twice to go to texts and sms's it is so SLOW!! I am looking at Samsung E900 and Sony Ericsson K610i at the moment. I know it is the year 2007 and this phone shouldn't exist, but it survived 4 years, and my nokia 6101 selfishly stopped working, and i can't afford to buy a better phone at the moment. All decent phones are around §200.(yes Euros. I live in Belgium) This phone is very disappointing and the keys are annoying!! God i can't wait to get a new phone. This phone has made my texting life miserable!! [I am a 14 year old :P]

If you're looking on ebay for a cheap, well featured phone you might be tempted by one of these.. Word of warning think before going ahead getting one of these! ITs slow, unreliable and reception is pretty poor. Its horrid to text on (misses letters out) and camera is terrible in low light. In short it looks good but thats the only reason to buy it. I'd get a sagem myx6/7 if you want something in this price range! (£10-30) Do not pay >£30 for it, it just isn't worth it! Its a sony before they knew how to make phones! Is arguably the best looking phone I've owned mind.

i bought this phone december 2003. I have given it a 5 star rating, because back in its day, it truley was one of the best phones out, it was the first camera phone that you could turn on its side and use it like a digital camera, these days, most phines have that quality.It had GPRS which was advanced for its day. It isnt sold in the shops anymore, but in the year and a half i had it, it serve me well, with only minor problems from time to time, but they were resolved. It was such a good phone, until it got water damaged after 18 months, so i i was forced to buy the T630 which is pretty much the same phone. They were both great phones.

I foolishly bought this phone for its looks about a year ago. It has nothing else going for it, see all the other reviews regarding complex arcane menus, bad images etc. The thing that has made me decide to bin it is that the recharger lead is so sensitive that it will no longer charge up, unless i check it every few minutes to make sure the flex hasnt sagged and shut off the charging connection. A phone with no way of charging, is useless, this one might as well be a wind up phone. I feel conned by sony ericson and will think twice before using one of thier phones again.

Reviewed by Sarz from UK on 14th Nov 2005
This was the first sony ericsson phone I had and I wasnt impressed one bit since having nokias all the time before. this was super slow to do anything, hardly ever picked up reception, hardly any battery life, the camera pics were so poor you coud hardly make out what they were. the phone kept on switching itself off and wouldnt allow me to turn it back on for a while and the battery didnt fit securely into the phone if you took the back cover off it would just fall out - shamefull. Poor ringtones and themes- the phone thing was just poor...definetly not a good example of sony ericsson for my first phone- and especially not very reassuring seeing as everything by sony I have ever owned has only ever lasted a few months (a year at the most after being replaced 3 times)...

Reviewed by gillian from UK on 8th Nov 2005
when i first got this phone i thought it was great but i noticed that the camera has started to get very fussy and the pictures just arent as good as they used to be! i also noticed there isnt an awful lot of memory for pictures, sounds and ringtones. i wish i had have payed a little extra for the k500i, as now its seems it would have been a better choice.

I got this phone about a week and a half ago and I haven't yet found a reason to complain. I love the look of this phone, it's very stylish with a hint of elegance, I give SE an A* for the style. The bluetooth is excellent, at first I wasn't quite sure how to work bluetooth but I soon figured it out and i'm having a great time with it, downloading my pictures is something i couldn't do with Samsung E300, A* for the bluetooth. Something I did find a little dissapointing was the fact that my internet doesn't work, but I can just do everything via bluetooth so i don't reali need it! So all in all i'm thoroughly pleased with my SE T610!

Reviewed by Katherine Haywood from UK on 21st Sep 2005
I've had the Sony Ericsson T610 for around a year now and it's the best phone that I've had so far. It was the first time I tried a Sony Ericsson, but was of such high quality that I am now considering only getting Sony Ericssons. It has fantastic memory, being able to hold many photos and sounds. The only problem memory-wise being the small inbox, I'm afraid that when I get my new Sony Ericsson I won't be able to save all the messages that mean a lot to me, since I can only have 10 on my Sim Card. The camera is of pretty high quality, and I have taken several good photos of buildings which look outstanding. However, photos of people can be blurred and of poor quality, because the camer relies heavily on the amount of light in the room. The games are enjoyable, but can sometimes take a very long time to load. The T610 is robust, and has managed to withstand me constantly dropping it on the floor for the past year. My friend threw hers on the concrete pavement and STILL it survived. The camera is a perfect size, being able to fit into any pocket or bag easily. It's a fairly attractive phone, and I haven't been embarrassed to use it in public. The texting on this phone is my favourite feature. The buttons are perfect for quick texting, and the texting system is easy to learn and use. I find texting on this phone much easier than with flip-phones, as the buttons on that kind of phone are harder to press and the texting system is often very irritating. Overall, the T610 is well worth the money, since it costs barely nothing now, and is a handy little phone which people are STILL buying even though many more complex phones are on the market. It's brilliant, and I won't be very happy when I have to part with it. 4/5 definitely.

Good design, and nice, funky styling but let down by a few niggles such as - 1. battery life poor, especially with bluetooth turned on 2. camera resolution very low 3. ringtone nowhere near loud enough, even at full volume 4. vibrate feature only good if the phone's kept VERY close to you. okay to show off with, but as a general use phone, try something else.

Reviewed by With regrets and distress from UK on 8th Aug 2005
I liked the menuing and all but after four months I had it in the shop having the circuits replaced because of moister (from humidity) because the phone would not charge; had to buy a new charger for it as well. SE has a very poor design for the charger that will only hold in and charge if placed in carefully and you donít get any calls while it is charging. The phone started cutting off for no reason and the blue tooth head set is worthless dropping calls over five minutes; not good for getting work done while talking. I am now looking at a few other phones to replace it. I will most likely end up with a Nokia or a Motorola; and never buy a SE again because of the charger design.

this phone is amazing. It has everything you could want. If you are a gadget geek you may moan about it but i have had it for 1 year and i have loved it. HOWEVER!!!! and this is pretty important...almost a couple of days after my warentee ran out my screen broke. It would cost a bmob to have it repaired and i am really rather gutted. So i would definatrely reccomend this phone to everyone and although i am irritated at this problem i have come to the conclusion this is typical of all phones and of the manufacturer trying to squeeze yet more money out of their ever guliable consumer. If you want a great fone however this is the one to have!

When I first got this phone, I thought it was flawless. It was my first camera phone and I was thoroughly delighted with it! But now I realise, the camera is very dull and fuzzy, with only very small adjustments to the contrast available and it's all very pixelated. There is no zoom also which is quite a pain. The menu took me a long time to get used to as you have to go into loads of sub-categories to find exactly the place you want to be in - i.e To send a text message, on most phones you would go to Messages>Write New Text However, the T610 requires you to go into Messages>Text Messages>Write New Message which can get a bit annoying but isn't majorly important. The voice recorder is quite good but I have heard better. One last thing is that you cannot change the Welcome Message. Mine stays as 'Welcome to Orange' the whole time which is just pretty boring to me! However - Good points. The phone looks absolutely GORGEOUS! It was the look of it that attracted me to it in the first place when I saw a TV advert of it before even knowing the specs! Lightweight and nice and small with a camera button on the side for easy functioning! Lovely keys - nice shape and positioning! They can be a little hard to press at times but are genreally okay. I have personally had no probs with sunlight screen viewing as I have read others have. And you gotta love the fancy animation that comes on the screen when you turn the phone on and off! Short review of the T610's good and bad points - hopefully useful to you. Brilliant phone with some slight flaws! ~Kate x :D

I have had this phone for almost a year now and am very pleased with it's performance. I will award it as the best looking phone. Very stylish and sleek. In fact, I am trying to look for a better featured phone that matches its style. It is also very durable. I had dropped it many times and it seems to not loose any of its functions. I love it's interface as well. What more can I say? For a basic phone i.e. minus mp camera/mp3 player/video capturing etc, this will be my phone of choice.

I can press it to get the menu up, but end up connecting to WAP, or text screen, or my call list!! No good if u r in a hurry. I wouldn't recommend this fone to my worst enemy, and only rated it as '1' cos there wern't any negative numbers ... -10 would have been more apt. I regret giving up my nokia, and luckily have a new one winging its way to me now. R.I.P. Sony Ericsson T610

After owning a 3310 I fancied an update. Hmm!!! Like the display and features. Golf could keep me amused on uni field trips for a while but when it came to texting I've never been so hacked off in all my life!!!! Constantly freezes and slow to respond, but more annoyingly it picks and chooses what letters it will or won't let me select depending on it's mood and adds extra letters in!!!! Have nearly launched it at many a wall at high speed!!!! No problems with signal though but the quiet ringtones can be a pain as you have to keep checking the phone. Camera pretty wank as well! Wouldn't recomend this phone but will keep as a spare.

Whether you like this phone really depends on what you use it for. Its small stylish, and looks the part. It feels like a quality item and in that respect deserves the Sony name. The T610 is feature packed too and includes comprehensive organiser functions and both IR and bluetooth. Games are OK and you can download more but some run very slow.. If like me you use mainly a phone for calling and texting, you will be dissapointed. Reception is mediocre, I often saw the phone has lost the network whilst other people on same network have 3/5 signal! Texting is worse still as the words appear about 2 or three seconds after you've typed them. Very awkward to see if you've made a mistake. Speedy it ain't, my computer takes less time to switch on (seriously!!) and every now and then it locks up for 10 seconds and then frustratingly remembers every single key press that you've pressed (so a few wrong numbers dialed!!). Screen poor, mine broke and had some white pixels in centre, but even when new impossible to read in sunlight. The camera is of very low quality especially indoors! There is no video mode. There's no speaker phone which is annoying if you want hands free operation without the very expensive hands free kit, or to speak in a group to others! In short it looks better than it is, sony ericcsson have produced a phone that looks better than it performs. For anything but the basics this has it covered. But its so awful at the basics I just cannot recommend the phone to anybody. I nearly swapped it for a friends Nokia 3510 (a very cheap basic phone) because I was so fed up of it, but couldn't live without some of the features. Its eventually been replaced by a Sagem MY X7 which feels far cheaper but is a joy to use. Less money on style, more on substance! I'd take the sagem over the sony anytime!

Very Poor intractivity. Need so many clicks to do simple things. Can't use for long starts to hurt ur eyes. Don't like middle main button at all (not feel good to use). Good usable camera. Lots of features, nice themes and ringtones.

This phone has a lot of functionality, and that is all the good things I can say about it. The software is so slow that I can press keys and then watch for a couple of seconds as the phone catches up with me. The SMS input is very annoying taking numerous button presses to get the word you need. Another thing that p*sses me right off is that if I choose an alternative to a popular word (eg I type Tie instead of The) the phone will use "Tie" every time I want "The" for the next week or so meaning I have to mess about changing it every time. I could rant for pages. I will NEVER buy a Sony Ericsson product again. I'm sticking with Nokia in the future.

This phone is just the best, I'm so glad I got it! The picture quality is excellent, and I love the fact that your family/friends picture comes up when they ring or text you. I Definitely recommend this phone to anyone who's thinking of buying it.

yep a good quality phone except that it takes about 8 clicks to send a message to someone in your phone book and after every click there is a slight delay so it takes forever... also ringtones are very quiet. Reception (on o2) has always been very good and I love the WAP/GPRS menu. Got lots of gadgets that I know i\'ll never use but it\'s nice to have them there all the same, although maybe having so much on one phone slows it down a bit? Happy enough with it though..

Pros Excellent styling, excellent features, good camera, lovely screen (altho it seems to be forever dirty!)good user interface, bluetooth, quick camera access, not a nokia Cons **** games, quiet ringtones, no handsfree included with phone, but worst of all woeful reception.On O2, areas that have full signal with my old T300 have no signal at all. The number of calls dropped due to this has been unacceptable, on this point alone the phone is going back. For all of it\'s lovelyness there\'s no point in a phone with poor signal quality. Sorry SE must do better

At my line of work, I get to handle a lot of work. I received the T610 & after working with it for half an hour I wanted to break it in anger. Ok, so it supports most current high-end phone features, but the user interface is absolutely TERRIBLE!!! - Each menu requires a different soft key press - you just don't know what to press when. - In order to define a new wap connection I had to access 3 different setting menus In conclusion: Don't buy it, go for the outstanding GX20

I loved this phone at first sight. Since it was free with on year contract in USA. I got it. However, I don't like it after I stuck with one-year contract. The phone has all kinds of functions but ... 1. Pictures are fuzzy. Compare to Samsung E715, t610 pic quality is very poor. 2. Ring tone is lower. My husband can't even hear it outside. He can't feel the vibration either. Samsung provides the best clear ring tones. 3. Dim screen under the sun (day-light). Poor display 4. key-lock not functional. Easy to connect by accident. 5. Weak receiptions: in the same room, all my other friends can make/receive calls except me with the tiny T610. Only one feature I will give 5 stars is its battery time. It standby almost 5 days. Maybe it's because of its dim screen and poor display pixels.
