Review: Sony Ericsson S710a
There are no dedicated call buttons on the Sony Ericsson phones, however the entire interface is designed around the European standard of call being on the left and end on the right. On the Home screen the left softkey is then assigned the recent calls shortcut that the Send button would normally have. During calls the right softkey takes on the End key functionality, while the left activates speakerphones and the D-Pad select becomes a menu key. Once you realize that the buttons are mapped to the same side, all calling features work exactly as expected.
Sony Ericsson's contacts application operates entirely from the phone memory, which is why the startup wizard asks to copy contacts from the SIM to the phone. Each contact can hold multiple phone numbers, email address, street addresses and notes. When adding a new contact, any type of information can be added in any order simply by navigating to that field.
Each name can be assigned a photo caller ID picture, personalized ringtone and voice dialing tag from within his contact card. Assigning speed dial is done from within the options menu in the Contacts application, but not from within a contact card.
