Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE

Sony Ericsson mini S51SE's size

The Sony Ericsson mini S51SE is 2.0472inches (52mm) wide, 3.46inches (88mm) tall, and 0.63inches (16mm) thick. It's extremely compact, and can be easily operated with one hand. In the case of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE, it weighs about 3.49oz (99g). The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

The size and weight of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE make it very comfortable to use. If you're looking for a smartphone that is easy to handle and carry around, then this should be your first choice.

The CPU performance of Sony Ericsson mini S51SE

The processing performance of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE is quite low at 1.5GHz×1(Single core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Sony Ericsson mini S51SE only has 512.0MB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Sony Ericsson mini S51SE's storage capacity

The Sony Ericsson mini S51SE has 1GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Sony Ericsson mini S51SE's screen

The Sony Ericsson mini S51SE has a 3 inch screen. The screen is comparatively small, which could be slightly frustrating. The text might feel too small, or the buttons be hard to press, so keep that in mind.

The screen quality of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE is such that videos and images can be blurry at times. There's a noticeable lack of image quality in general.

The camera function of Sony Ericsson mini S51SE

The performance of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The Sony Ericsson mini S51SE comes equipped with a 0 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Sony Ericsson mini S51SE

The battery of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE has a capacity of 1200mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Sony Ericsson mini S51SE is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Overall assessment of Sony Ericsson mini S51SE

The Sony Ericsson mini S51SE's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.
