I own a K700i which I bought a month ago. I'm pleased with it. Good sound, enough memory, loads of features (for non-smartphone category..). Well, I'm looking forward to buying maybe an improved version of K700 (perhaps K800?)- with added features such as 2.0 mp camera, 64 polyphonic sound, larger phonebook capacity, etc. Come on SE! Make it happen!
do alot of you have to upgrade the software??? once or many times??
please help!!! thank you!!!
The K700 is a sure winner. Yeah, the initial batches had quite a few bugs, but with the recent Firmware upgrades, it is certainly on top. This is a wonderful phone! Nothing else in it's class beats it, only comes close (a la the Motorola E398).
I had this phone for about one week. The battery life is awful, It has no longer than 1 hour talk time at best. The phone constantly resets itself if you use too much of its built in memory to store mp3s or photos. The battery cover on the back starts to work itself loose after a few days. The firmware has loads of bugs. Surely Sonyericsson can produce a product that is tested before it is released. I have owned
lots of Ericsson and Sonyericsson phones (T28 world,R520m, T68, T610, P900) This is definately the worst product to date. Hope fully the S700i will not let us down. Go buy an Sharp gx32 it is a far better phone apart from its limited bluetooth capabilities but thats another story!
This phone is available at www.onestopphoneshop.co.uk £25/ month contract other than that free.
thanx for correcting me...
im a industrial designer, mobilephones are one of the product that our company is doing. that's y it is necessary for designer like us to always look around and research on the latest product & their design.
i admit that k700 & E398 has nearly the same features, but in-term of design, for a desginer point of view, not to say im supporting which brand, i still think that K700 has a better and more attracting outlook than E398, so, it depends on "hi"'s interest, if his/her interest are more on outlook, then for sure i will recomment K700, but if is for real sound quality, then he/she shud go for E398 already.
to be frank, im not a supporter of Nokia. i admit they are coming out with some nice design & features' new phones like 7610, 6630, 6260, 3220.. but wat i can see from them is tat they r always increasing the price of their phones, which for me, i think its...
Look,I tell ya , moto E 398 Is much better!! The mp3 can be a ringtone and the sound is better as on K700!Only good on this phone is the intarnal memory and Mp camera!The perfect phone is the mPX100 from moto but its canclled,so the co perfect phone whith extra design is Moto E398 ,With nice price! :-)
I bought K700i yesterday. Today it began to reset it self. I did not manage to finish even one phone conversation. I made warranty clame, but I do not belive, that the problem will be solved with a software reload, as they told me will be done. I am very angry at the moment.
to kel and hi,
e398 has expansion card slot when k700 does not even though the card type is still quite uncommon, it has 3d surround sound which is excellent as i've heard before, besides that both phones are almost the same, k700 has a built-in fm radio though
so kel it is unfair to say that k700 is much better as both phones are almost the same in terms of features and functions
7610 is from a different class, it's a symbian s60 smartphone, which means you can do lotsa stuff with it, but k700 is just a normal phone with good specs, so if you don't need a smartphone, k700 is definitely a good phone
about mp3, definitely k700 as it has a stereo output whereas 7610 only has mono output
but i love my 7610 though, it's a great phone
I bought T610 at US$435 and now after 1 year it is selling at US$196 . Now the K700 is priced at same rate bcoz it's new entry. It means that new mobiles are so profiting to manufacturers. I envy those who are buying t610 at present rates . So it's all fashion and craving to hold the latest mobile in your palms . otherwise it's not wise to buy new entry.If u value money then being calm and moving one step behind is always good for ur pocket. It is same phenomena for all electronics so not to blame SE alone. I will buy K700 when SE releases S700 bcoz prices will crash then .... It's far too expensive, even a P800 is cheaper now . Am I not right guys
right now i'm saving money to buy this awesome phone...i like the se t630 design too...have anyone heard about the se t650? right now im using nokia 6610 very satisfied very stable...i've used several se t65 phones/t100 but lots of problem..hang, auto shutdown..i hope these new models dont have the problems...anyway i think nokia is giving us crap nowadays...even the new models still comes with only 4k colr n 128x128 screen...no wonder its losing market share!!! i want to buy siemens st60 but heard siemens phone lotsa problem hang etc anyway expensive no bluetooth n irda...some of the older models even have yellowish screens
I can't decide between this and the Nokia 7610. Which one should i get? Which one has a better MP3 player?
Thanks you sony that i found a perfect phone.. i was waiting for this phone for quit sometimes.. If the phone is with bigger memory and bigger screen that will be better.. but overall for now is very good.. thanks
fiona, i know a site that is legal and u can get the phone for 259 quid. it's www.mobilefun.com it's definitely genuine
hi, i would like to know where can i buy a sony ericsson k700 via internet but it must not be a fraud site
I love this one but it would definitely be better than this if Sony considered mega pixel camera !!!!
