ive dropped the bitch twice! 1st time on a steel grating at work that dented the edge near the lense (~3mm deep)... it was permissable. 2nd time on holiday to a rugged concrete footpath... catastrophic. anyone know if there is a customer care that can replace to covers?
640x480 is only clearer than 1280x960 on the phones screen, cuz 1280x960 has too much detail (too big) for the screen to display well, hence the shitty look. 640x480 looks better because the screen has a 'smaller' image to display. you'll find if u display them on your comp 1280x960 is better, just looks worse on the phone.
I have had my K700i for nearly three months now. I complained about the battery life being very poor, like lots of others on here.
The good news is, the battery life gets better after each charge.
To begin with, it would only last 2-3 days, now I am getting 6-7 days with the phone being on 24 hours a day!
I use the calls/WAP/etc for at least 2-3 hours a week, so it was frustrating to begin with, but hang in there, things will improve. My wife's T610 lasts for 14-15 days on permanent standby as a comparison!
On the camera side, the 640x480 setting produces much better results than 1280x960, so steer clear of this setting!
If you can be patient for the battery to get into full capacity, then this is a gem of a phone.
However, there are very few phones these days, with excellent facilities and battery hungry screens that are as good as older phones for battery life!
It's disappointing that Sony Ericsson and others don't produce a high capacity battery as a optional extra!
ya the video recording is quite blurry but it can record more than 15mins more than 20mins
I think it cannot play RM files.
However, this mobile is definetly massive, i've dropped mine 3 times to a stone floor at this new years eve party. Not even a scratch!
Can I use K700i to play real player music files?Some body please help. Thanks
hey, ive had this fne for about 3 months now and i have to say over all this fone is brilliant! the only little hitch i wud say bout the fne is the quality of the camera! its described as 1.2mp, but in reality the quality is not as good esspecially when the image is in motion, it gets very blurry! Unfortunatly the same can be said for the video recorder, its pretty bad wat ever the condition, especially wen you move it around it gets very pixelated! esspecially on video play! Then again for a phone that cost this much and sum of the features it offers you can do alot worse with sum of the more expensive phones!! Buy it, well worth it!
maybe we shouldnt love our new hp first but this is the fone that i been waiting for,no fone is perfect and bcoz of that everyone is always wanted to buy a new fone.This a great fone so treat it with care.
By the way, the battery life is killing me. I am a cell phone heavy user in my daily basis, any advice? I need to have my phone standby 24 hours. My phone can't last more than 12 hours as it is now. Thats really a pain in my neck.
I just discovered this website months after i used my K700i.
Is not really a super phone or the best obviously, but compared to the price at this range, I would say, this is the best piece u would ever imagined of.
The memory is only a issue if u r expecting this as good as mp3 player or the pda. A phone is still a phone. Perhaps if that's the case some people r hoping for...MULTI-TASKS, I don't think there is any phone that can match such requirement at a super quality speaking.
One thing that bothers me about this phone is the blue tooth device. I am having lots of problems when trying to connect it to my computer. Maybe I installed the cd or forgot some settings perhaps?
Hi, I got a question. Don't you have a kind of portable bluetooth memory device ? So when your k700i is full, you can send some files to that device.
That would be handy .
PAL, you can activate the light just pressing the key "5" in the camera mode. But must remember that SE does not says that this Light is a "FLASH", at least here in Brazil... but only a light to help in dark.
Hi to all. I've bought a K700 about 3 months ago and I'm very satisfied. I always read about the low memory and the battery time, but like sksky says, cell phones are made to calling people, but there are a few things that I do to optimize de memory. Firstable, when I send a MP3 to phone, the file must be reencoded to a small bitrate, A regular mp3 have 128kbs, so, if you reencode to 56 or 48kbs, a mp3 with size about 4Mb and 128kbs after reencoed gets only 1,5 ou 2Mb and the sound still good and u can send much more music to the phone. With videos I do the same. About battery, all the new models of cell phones have problem with it, it seems that the Brands made new models with a lots of tech innovations but they don't made new batterys that supports those new features... But the battery of my K700 is good, i have to recharge each 2 days, but I use the player and radio a lots of times a day. Conclusion: K700 is a good cell phone.
The light (or flash as you call it) can be activated while in camera mode - clic "More" and activate the "Light" entry of that menu.
true that skysky, how the hell did U(Rocky D) fill up the memory, I have about 20 pic and tons of ringtones and still have about 41mb remaining... so i dont know how the heck u filled it up and ya mp3 player i own one so i use that instead. Nowadays almost everyone had an mp3 player sooo go buy one. Holy crap.
