i m just trying to buy it but i need to know one that i have w800i but in full screen video mp4 dose not show clear picture if sombody have k790i or k800i plz check the mp4 video in full screen..that it shows clear video or just like w800i.......
@ c: All k750i applications can be used on this phone. However, the screen size and resolution is much better on the k790i, so most k750i applications will only show on a fraction on the screen in the upper left hand corner. It isn't very enjoyable, honestly.
@ rkqj: Define "hang". Menu navigation is very fast, faster than motorolas and FAR faster than any symbian nokia I have ever used. When using headphones the volume on the phone is excellent, I love talking on the phone with headphones, one of my favorite parts of the phone. Yes, the lens cover can open up, and it can get dusty. This can be fixed with a simple dry lint-free cloth. Keypad is a little smaller than k750i, but I am used to it, and prefer having a larger screen than a larger keypad. Incredibly loud ringing makes up for any weakness in vibration (the vibration suits me fine). This is the first phone I have owned that I didn't set for maximum ring volume (it was just too loud). I haven't tried sending an email to the service center because I haven't had a single problem, but everytime I walk into Sony Style in my area they are very warm and supportive, even when I make it clear I have no plans of making a purchase. And yes, please do bear the price into consideration, it is extremely cheap for the technology it contains.
Hi Silver Worm!
For one the phone hangs.
The ear piece volume has its limitations
The lens cover opens up, if stored in pocket. If this happens often, lens is likely to get dusty.
It is slow to response.
The organiser is better then the other phones. SAR is good.
Keypad congested, need toothpick fingers to operate.
If you notice all the other praises are for the camera, not the phone. Primarily it is a phone.
In vibration mode, weak vibration alert.
secondly try sending an email to the service center. And see the reply you get, if any.
Try contacting the service center and see, how many times you got to dial to get a response, if any.
I am not against the phone. Overall i feel except for the camera, the K750i, W800, W810 are as good. Bearing price into consideration.
TR1M, you are absolutely wrong, obviously a hater who does not even own the phone. If you owned it you would understand that the battery life is the best part, lasting far longer than ten pictures, in fact taking pictures seems to have almost no effect on the battery. I have gone days without charging my phone, the battery is second to none. Sure, this phone is a phone first, and that being said it makes it even more impressive. Please specify your complaints, I'm curious to know what about the phone makes you unhappy
The 1gb card can be bought for 3k at alpha in mumbai. 512Mb is for 2k. I too have been using this phone, its not all that great. Just the camera is good. Rest nothing out of the world. One should not forget its primarily a phone, and not a camera. Wonder how long the battery will last if you click about 10 pics. This is a hyped phone.
I own the sony ericsson k790i and I am currently using it in the USA under the carrier T-Mobile. I consider myself a phone geek, and can answer any questions you have about this phone, as well as questions concerning many other popular high-tech phones. Feel free to email me and I will help you the best I can. Drsilverworm@gmail.com

The video resolution of K790 is very poor.SE has to look into this disadvantage of this phone and resolution increased. Many of my friends are relectunt to buy this fone while seeing the poor video quality.The camera works best than imagined.Thanks
Rajesh, its okay, i can go there and walk arnd and shop arnd.. Thanks for the info.
I hope it isn't a typo, but it appears Amazon.com is selling the K790a. The description says 850/1800/1900mhz. Please note I don't work for Amazon.com and I benefit in no way by posting this.
I'm just another person frustated by lack of places selling the K790a.
Hi Yz, my friend who went to Singapore on a short visit came back with K790i. To what I understand he got it around High Street area. Somewhere near Penisula Hotel. My friend left for Sydney on Monday. I can only give you exact detail about the Shop only after a week after he is back. Talk to you...
QQRW, u sure u saw singapore selling k790i for USD380? where did u see that? care to share with me? i cant find it anywhere in singapore..
has anyone seen the k790a out yet? i know the k790i is out in canada but havent seen the k790a .. fido n rogers r totally clueless when they getting them too
Freinds, I got this phone last week in Indonesia. It costs $ 460 with 64MB M2. It is very expensive over here whereas our neighbourhood Singapore this phone is available at only USD 380.
It is a great phone. Couldn't wait longer for price to drop as when I saw it in one of the shop, I immediately grabbed it.
One of the websites posted some pics taken by SE K790 in comparision a professional camera from Canon. Well it was a pleasant surprise but I feel too much respect is given to this phone.
But I would confess it is great gadget which would be your companion as a Digial camera, Walkman, Organizer, communicator ( email ) and it also has a good web browser, though browsing with GPRS is killing in Indonesia, phone companies charge as much they can when you use GPRS.
Friends, I have not tried Nokia N73 or N93 or even 6233, but to what I feel this phone makes up to a great extent as you good companion.
Do try it to know that I am not wrong. You will be satisfied. But I have been hearing some stories about phone getting hanged etc etc, mine has not till yet.
So this all makes up to my loss of paying high price on this gadget.
Talk to you later.
k790i works in USA. I have been using it (Ohio) since it was released.
This looks like a nice Sony phone but i left Sony cuz of the 1900 mhz reception which was pretty pathetic with s700i, k750i (both i owned). Luv my samsung though. Dont get me wrong SE has nice phones but reception is main thing for me. Sorry sony when u build a rep for reception like nokia i will come back to u.
