The Sony Ericsson style phone is a good all-rounder but should be grabbed with both hands now that it's attached to 3's attractive 6 month contract special. The 6 month term is the best contract option as it gives you the least commitment currently available on the market. Short enough to allow you be ready in double quick time to take advantage of a new deal 6 months down the road. The tariff, the best flexible tariff on the market - is a big bonus.

Look and Feel
A concealed OLED displays incoming caller ID and music track info then fades away. It's hardly slimline but it's compact with a clunky but springy snap action.
For a style phone, the Sony Ericsson Z610i is generous. A two-megapixel camera, a music player, 3G and expandable memory are all on offer.
Ease of Use
The Sony Ericsson Z610i has a spacious keypad and responsive user interface. Dedicated buttons fire up the camera, video calling and task manager.
The music player works well and sounds pretty good. Nicely scaled down web pages make for pleasant browsing.
420 minutes of talktime is pretty good for a style, so you can make use of the multimedia functions without worrying about running out of energy.
