Sony Ericsson Elm Review


Welcome to the Sony Ericsson Elm review/information page.  The SE Elm is a deceptively fully functional mobile phone.  Designed as an ordinary looking cadndy bar style phone, the Elm boasts a ton of hardware features you would actually use. We do not know why its called the Elm but this naming system is what SE are doing these days with all their phones.  It is one of the company’s ‘Green Heart’ phones which means environmentally materials are used where possible.

We haven’t managed to get our hands on a real one yet so this page is ‘reserved’ for the full review when that happens.  So until then here are our comments.

The Elm is packed with the latest hardware for 2010.  It features 3G, Wi-Fi, Web browser with FLASH, A-GPS and a 5Mp camera so all the latest and probably essential features of a mobile phone in the years ahead.  It is surprising how much hardware is packed into the phone  since it is quite small and weighs so little.  Front on it looks like a regular chocolate bar phone until you see the side profile and it has a curved back!  Yes it uses real metal and rubberized plastics so should feel good in the hand and use.

The user interface is the latest FLASH based menu system and should work easily, reliability and fast.
