Frankly speaking we shouldnt be bothered about the sensor, i dont care if its CMOS or CCD. We are barely gonna notice the difference in the picture quality. We're just blowing up this issue unnecessarily. We shouldnt care much unless one of us is a professional photographer & is hoping of hangng this fone around the neck to do professional photography.
As i've mentioned once, it's a good idea not to purchase fones when they've just entered the market. Its good to wait a while to see how it fares in the market. Also the flaws that were in the initially released models are ironed out in the subsequent models.
Robot, I think people are having problems with this phone becasue they have not formatted the memory stick.
Well this better be the case, as I too have ordered one and it cost me £300!!!
If I have problems with this phone I will personally take it upon myself to assasinate every single employee of Sony Ericsson.
Everyone says CCD are better than CMOS slightly in nocie are I thin are rigt thanks to Jake's answer and yes the phone at the moment has a CMOS sensor!
so which is better!?
cmos and ccd? And what lens does it have now? CMOS???
Man, I've ordered this one but planning on canceling it, people keep scaring me saying it breakes all the time! whyyy sonyericsson, whyyy!?
Poor guy: I think http://www.tx1.com still do free texts or they might have changed it!
To Jake and Tommy, just don't see why they are chaging the phone now it is out! Will it be slightly differnt in looks and call it like K750o or i or something as it is a better model?? Personaly I would just make another model simular to the K750 and out the CCD sensor in that and change and improve some other features!
Ok thanks Tommy and Jake! I believe CCD are better but when you said CCD and CMOS have their good points your basickly saying the CCD sensors are better lol apart from the battery!
Other question answered: Yes the phone does come with a cable to transfer stuff like photo's and things and has a memory stick too to but other things on that memory stick! I recoment getting a bluetooth dongle too for about £20! Wireless and quite fast!
TBH I can't see them doing that - if anything they will release a completely new device with those features encorporated or else people who have the lower spec'd model would be ruffled by that.
Also, how comes noone at Sony Ericsson has this info and yet that reviewer got the info? We have insiders at SE and they didnt know about it.
One last thing, the whole CMOS vs CCD debat is interesting, but as someone posted a link earlier, the CMOS on the K750i well outperformed a v970 (I believe) with a 2mp CCD. Maybe just the processor, but it was a big difference...
I still want the K750i :)
Ok James, Si Dude, you want proof here is your proof.
It is the first article on the page.
I wouldnt say CCD sensors are better than CMOS sensors. I'd say they're two different & have advantages of their own.
CCD sensors create high-quality, low-noise images. CMOS sensors, traditionally, are more susceptible to noise.
Because each pixel on a CMOS sensor has several transistors located next to it, the light sensitivity of a CMOS chip tends to be lower. Many of the photons hitting the chip hit the transistors instead of the photodiode.
CMOS traditionally consumes little power. Implementing a sensor in CMOS yields a low-power sensor.
CCDs use a process that consumes lots of power. CCDs consume as much as 100 times more power than an equivalent CMOS sensor.
CMOS chips can be fabricated on just about any standard silicon production line, so they tend to be extremely inexpensive compared to CCD sensors.
CCD sensors have been mass produced for a longer period of time, so they are more mature. They tend to have higher quality and more pixels.
Based on these differences, you can see that CCDs tend to be used in cameras that focus on high-quality images with lots of pixels and excellent light sensitivity. CMOS sensors traditionally have lower quality, lower resolution and lower sensitivity. CMOS sensors are just now improving to the point where they reach near parity with CCD devices in some applications. CMOS cameras are usually less expensive and have great battery life.
Does the phone come with the lead so you can transfer mp3's from your pc?
Give me hard evidence that CCD sensors are better than CMOS now and how you know the information otherwise I don't believe you! Also give me hard evidence that they are putting a CCD sensor in this phone! I think it is a bit stupid that they make a phone and then change it after like a month it has been out! So give me proof on those 2 things!
Tommy, not sure who your source is but I work for O2. I spoke to Sony Ericsson and spoke to several advisors in Data Support and they have no information about any planned upgrades for the K750i. No CCD Upgrade etc. Where did you get that information from?
The video/sound recording will go on till there's enough memory. It'll continue to record till the memory's finally over. And as far as mp3 files having a digital copyright, i dont think that's a problem, just transfer your mp3 files to your fone from your PC or from someone else's fone via bluetooth or any other means & it'll play.
Why charge it for so long. Just give it what it needs. I know people who charge there phone overnight say every 2nd night and now they charge it overnight every night cos they killed the battery by charging it for too long. Anyways I got my k750 yesterday and so far no problems to report.
really bad ! bad luck always ! buy this phone last night and getting stack everytime ! every 5 minutes need to get the battery out and in once again ! shiiiiit
Charged my new K750i for 16 hours and then a red light came on in the infrared port. Now it won't power on at all. Seems like the perfect phone apart from the fact that it doesn't work!!
Now I've got to wait for another day to get a replacement and then another 16 hours to charge that one!
