Sony Ericsson S312 Snapshot: Trusty & Compact Snapper from SE

Sony-Ericsson-S312-Snapshot-RedFinding a budget snapper can be a chore, especially if you dislike older snappers from other brands like Nokia. It’s a good thing that Sony Ericsson was able to release the Sony Ericsson S312 Snapshot in December of 2008.
While the Sony Ericsson S312 Snapshot does not have the same finesse as the Cybershot phones like the SE k750i sand SE k800 Cybershot, it’s still a good buy because they’ve included a CMOS sensor that’s at least as good as the k750i’s own CMOS sensor.
