Sony Ericsson S312

With the S312 Sony Ericsson shows that a pretty Bowl must be not necessarily expensive. And what about the inner workings of the cheap piece of jewelry?

  2. Data sheet

The chic S312 for 109 euro is served in the online-shop of Sony Ericsson. His compact and clean machined casing is with around 15 millimeters height pleasingly flat, which is why the Sony Ericsson S312 also comfortable wear in your pocket. The flyweight on the scale brings subtle 80 grams without while saving on the soft skills:
The phone book is lush with up to 1000 entries, in time the calendar reminds of upcoming appointments and tasks, while the music player and an FM radio for the musical moments are responsible. It’s just annoying that not a headset or a data cable is in the carton, so that the music directly from the packaging. But Sony Ericsson has more features in petto: the dual-band cell phone transmits data thanks to EDGE afloat via the GSM network and communicates via Bluetooth wireless head sets or computers.
The screen has been however somewhat roughly 220 pixels with a resolution of 176_x, so is the enthusiasm for small detours in the online world by borders. Kudos earned for the processing of the screen which shows no moiré even at high pressure. Also on the Panel, there is nothing objectionable: twelve-step menu browsing is intuitive; everything takes on his usual position in the style of a business phone, the Sony Ericsson S312 has also an E-Mail client on board. A push function, with which the mobile phone automatically checks the single gag of new emails, is not implemented – with missing data tariff this accommodates the users however. The distinctive keypad, although very attractive, ergonomically but rather concern falling out by the bad remote buttons is pretty much getting used to.
The 2 mega pixel camera, however, is very easy to use. With a separate shutter-release button and the ability to manually adjust brightness it is quite suitable for the one or the other snapshot, with LED Photo light even on nightly excursions.
Neatly into the sweat came the Sony Ericsson S312 in the test laboratory: the endurance measurements turned out the battery as the Achilles heel. He is staying power in the mix of uses with just times four hours responsible for a less good placement.
