Louzy fone.. guess that Sony E need to learn from Nokia how to make fones. Design and hardware quality of the fone is done well.. But when it comes to using the fone features, it is all unusuable or irritating.. I owned this fone for 2 months and happily traded it for the N-Gage QD, a great symbian os powered fone.. At first i was impressed of this fone (K700i).. Got radio, mp3, bluetooth, stereo sound, cool design and 4x digital zoom.. Wow!! The best fone eva!! Well NOT!!!
Here comes the pain part of this fone: To use the 4x digital zoom for taking photos and recording videos, you need to lower the pixels and why is that? In the end, you would be having low quality videos and photos done by a zoom function (well its better not to use it at all then).. Worst of all, you are limited to 41mb of memory and there is no expansion slot for photos, games, videos and mp3. You can only transfer pics and photos by the fone bluetooth function and transfer it to the pc via a bluetooth dongle.. This all drains battery and wastes TIME!!! The battery life drains quickly when playing java games and playing mp3 or radio via the speakerfone. My N-gage plays mp3 and games for hours n i have no complains about low battery. Worst of all, when taking photos or shooting videos with this fone, there is NO WAY you can mute the shutter sound.. And why is that?? This makes users of K700i to feel shame when they are doing so. Nokia fones have NEVER had this kind of pathetic feature in all their cam fones.. SE always wants their product to look classy and showing so-called quality business like feature.. And they provide all the inconvenience to all users as much as they can when the features are used..
For buyers of this fone: the N-Gage QD is cheaper than this unusuable fone and have features that are non-inconvenient, unlike this one. Symbian OS programs are always available and upgraded by programmers so you will have the thrill to use the quality programs.. The battery life of the QD is also long. You can also get symbian program Ultramp3 to install for playing mp3.. How great?? Can this fone (K700i) do that?? Haha.. No!!
A previous forum posts states that the K700i reception is also horrible. Another inconvenience?? Well i am not surprised to know that.. It's a Sony :)!! Avoid this fone at all costs. Never trust a SE product.. Shame on them.. Thank you for listening..
Huzzy... are you nuts? K700 why you compare K700 with N91? that is just too far.. look at the date of the phone being released... this phone is last year's phone... helloo??
Serb, you cannot insult nokia like that!!! nokia is the best phone company everyone knows that!!! It has released most number of phones than any other company!!!! and there is a lot of difference in the phones they release!!!!! take nokia 6680 or n91 for example!! does any company have a phone with 4gb inbuilt memory?? n does any phone company have a phone with 2 cams???no!!! the sony ericcson company is not a bad company they are improving!!! but no one can beat nokia!!! n nobody can live without a memory card!! and only 41mb inbuilt memory is nothing!!! so think before u buy n talk!!!!
............allz ok xcept that the phone stops playing in the middle of mp3 files..........can someone tell whats wrong?????
I own a k700i,and I'm absolutely delighted with it's features.I've always loved SE phones bcos of their designs and their features.But I'm a little bit dissappointed with my k700i cos barely a month after I started using it,it developed reception problems.Now it only has network service when it's close to a base station.Is there any firmware or any solution at all to this problem?Cos in Nigeria there's no SE service center so I can't return it

i think you're absolutely full of it. why in christ's name would you buy this expensive piece of crap to just make calls and sms huh? why not get yourself a monochromic nokia phone tht would make a joke out of this as far as your basic "Phone" funcionalities are concerned huh? and that would be abt say 1/5th of the price of this...

Thanks in Advance
a lot of people are complaining about this phone not supporting memory cards, the 41 mb is sufficent for what a phone needs. If you want your phone to be a mp3 player, digital camera, and videogame system then dont buy this phone. but this phone is excellent for A PHONE.I have an ipod a digital camera and a psp i dont need all that junk on my phone as well. So if you are looking for a phone and not a multimedia station you will be hard pressed to find one that performs as well as this for the price.
