the only way to disable camera shutter sound is when you are in silent mode.
at least thats how my k550 works...
There is no way to shut the camera shutter sound, or i am not able to find one. Let me know as well in case if u find one.
Well, i just got this for my brother couple of days ago ! & it rocks !!!
the cam & sound quality is up to expectations. & i wud call this best phone in it's own price range...
@the same guy
How is about the camera? I hope you ever used K750i, is K550 much lower quality?
Hi Monica Lewinsky
Trust me u r absolutely right.
Now we need to design fingers as well for that Kind of design ;)
This phone is well designed.
Now we have to design people with fingers that can actually use it.
Yea I agree 2... digital zoom is just used to give user a feel of zoom on the mobile screen.. on large screen like computer its just equivalent to zooming a full resolution picture... and zooming can also be done on a saved picture... so digital zoom doesnt matter at all..
I hope those who dont know about digital zoom have understood now that it doesnt matter if a mobile has a digital zoom or not.
I completely agree with your view point of Digital Zoom. That zoom is good for nothing. I am happy that someone understands the basics.
Keep it going man!!
I just want to know whether SEK550i can display message or number in large size ?
thks for the info.
For those who are unshure about the battery life of this phone...
Battery life is exellent. it has a 970mah battery (the 970mah is the big one,cuz the small one is the battery used in w810.) i recently got this phone and it can stand 4 days standby, playing java games or accessing internet 1-2 hours, 1 hour calltime, taking many pics, using leds as flashlight and writing more than 5 sms per day.
the recent launched k550i has a very nice pricing of $230-250 USD, but the long time ago released w810i stills pricing at $250-270?
the k series is always cheaper cuz they have simpler and faster firmware.. thats why.
and why the w series are slower? cuz their firmware is designed to show animation, flash menus and other cuties.
Who cares about digital zoom or not? Thats a dumb feature. a simple explanation->
digital zoom = croping a section of the pic then expand it to desired size.
i could easily do that on my pc using paint. pics will look much better than using digital zoom.
IF U ARE REALLY GOOD AT MOBILE PHOTOGRAPHING (like me =D) u will notice how useless is digital zoom. i'd rather take a normal picture then zoom it in my pc.
hope my opinion will clear your mind desiring about buy or not buy this phone cuz of digital zoom.
also the walkman feature is useless. compare it to media player on any same class K series:
W series: media player is cute (orange or black), shows plalist when u press down key and has Megabass.
K series: media player is OK(simple and white.), and u have to look for menu to find a song. it doesnt have megabass.
i dont need megabass feature since i have a pair of very bassy earphone (shure e2g)
if u guys ever had compared a K with a W series of the same class phone (same class is..eg.: k750 & w810, k550 & w610 and so) you will notice that K series phones are faster, and they have better cameras than W's. u can verify it at www.jbenchmark.com
phone is good but trust me the Battery back up is useless.
need this 2 importantn information.
about to purchase the phone as birthday gift for younger brother. urgent info needed folks.
1. does the taking pictures part in the k550i similar to k750i as in ability to zooms in all picture size modes ?
2. what is the video quality compared to the k750i ?
well guess not sukhie,
if i did know the answers to my questions or ''related'', i would'nt be asking, would i ?
well in other words is it the same functions as the k750i then as in zooming and snapping ?
tq ones again mr sukhie.
"it does'nt give zoom at 2m or 1m pixel mode you can only take photographs from distance at vga mode so this is just a normal vga phone"
do u even know wat a digital zoom is!!!?? and how the cameras give digital zoom in 2 MP mode or more.. if u know that u wont say this..
hie there folks,
after reading reviews after reviews bout this phone, im satisfied. i think it will replace my k750i well enough.
got a question though, can i zoom under the 2MP mode ?
in the k750i i can, unsure about this k550i.
thank u in advance.
waaaoh!i cannot this stuff is really amazing,at first i wasn't believe in sony Ericsson but after try it...men it's really killing me.
