Shows promise but just not on the money yet

The good: Lightweight | Small and compact design | Excellent battery lifeThe bad: Horrible display | 'Microwave'-style buttons | No camera built-in | Web browser sluggish | Very little memorySummary: I've owned this Sony Ericsson for a little over seven months now and have come to see the plusses and minuses. Kudos to Sony Ericsson for the lightweight design and durability. It's very compact and easy to hold. But on that high note, I must leave you, as we go into all the cons. Sony Ericsson is usually well-known for their high-quality phone displays - but this one was apparently left out in the cold. The screen is completely eye-soaring to look at. You can actually see each pixel as it appears that there is a teeny-tiny-tad bit of space in-between each pixel. All-in-all just painful to look at. Next, the buttons are sort of those kind that don't make a 'click' when you push them - rather a 'squish'. They are rubber buttons that don't hold easily - my number '5' button and the up-arrow button do not work anymore. Nextly, there is obviously no camera built-in - but Sony Ericsson does allow a purchased-separately camera to be connected at the bottom of the phone - the camera costs on-average about $20 give-or-take. The web browser is horrible to navigate through due to the tiny display and is sluggish as well. I had difficulties loggin-in to Yahoo and several other mail clients and could not see FoxNews, CNN, AOL, etc. very well at all.] Off the top of my head, the amount of memory slips my mind but I know the number is very small - after about 100 text messages saved in your phone [inbox AND sent folder] a message will pop-up that says 'Memory full'. And there is no room for expansion either.All-in-all this is a compact and lightweight phone for people who basically want to make calls and text's here-and-there. I would not recommend it for any other than that.
