Sony Ericsson Elm review


The Sony Ericsson Elm may beat with a GreenHeart, but does it completely sacrifice features for the good of our Blue Planet?

The best of both worlds: an eco-friendly phone that doesn’t heavily skimp on features

Sony Ericsson Elm


Riding the green wave is the Sony Ericsson Elm, part of its GreenHeart range, which aims to be a more environmentally friendly mobile phone. We've seen a number of eco phones from different manufacturers and we don't always buy into the eco pitch:...

Well connected, camera works pretty well, call quality

Operating system has changed little over the past few years, no 3.5mm jack

The Sony Ericsson Elm packs in pretty much all the features you'd want in a modern phone, whilst keeping a traditional format. The downside here is that the user interface isn't as clear and intuitive to use as modern rivals and the operating system...

Sony Ericsson Elm review


Adding a dash of eco-appeal to a decent phone

Eco-friendly ; Wi-Fi and HSPA ; A-GPS and sat nav apps included ; Decent 5MP camera ; Generous feature set for price

Average sized display ; No 3.5mm socket or adapter ; Mediocre earphones supplied ; Limited storage ; No USB cable

We've seen plenty of the recent razzle dazzle in the mobile phone market revolving around tech-loaded touchscreen smartphones like the HTC Desire and their eye-catching budget feature-phone stablemates like the Sony Ericsson Vivaz.

A GreenHeart Handset : Sony Ericsson Elm


Adding an ecology slant to the familiar mobile phone feature set, Sony Ericsson offers a green product.

Expect to pay in the region of £99 for a Pay-as-you-go phone. Those on a contract should get the handset free-of-charge. Designed to appeal to ecologically aware users, this phone has the capability to attract the attention of a wider group of mobile...

Sony Ericsson Elm Review – The Best Eco-Friendly Smartphone?


Unfortunately despite many attempts by manufacturers to popularise environmentally friendly phones previous attempts have generally fallen flat (such as the Sony Ericsson Aspen), probably due to the nature of these types of phones to compromise on the...

Well has the Sony Ericsson Elm brought environmentally friendly phones back up to the levels that consumers expect in this day and age? Yes, this can be seen in its performance in the new O2 Eco Rating System for mobile phones. Is it a good phone? Yes....

Sony Ericsson Elm J10


The model exists in various versions for different markets, which is also an attempt to save some money. For example, the Russian version is indexed as J10i2 and has integrated Wi-Fi and GPS. The J10 variation is sans Wi-Fi and GPS, which allowed the...

Sony Ericsson Elm


SONY ERICSSON'S ELM is its latest environmentally friendly phone in a candy bar design, which falls into the range of handsets under its Greenheart initiative. Basically, it's a budget phone, with a small screen and minimalist keypad common to that...

Environmentally friendly mobile, noise cancelling technology

Proprietary charging port meaning no 3.5 audio socket as a result, no data cable

The screen on the phone is a 2.2-inch 240x320 QVGA TFT display that, although it seems a good fit for the Elm, could have been better. Looking directly at the small screen the images seem bright enough, but not a lot of text is visible due to the...
