i sell mobile phones for a living and i compared all the phones to see which would be the best for me. and the k800 is the one. im a right feature geeka and this has them all! definitly 10/10 for this phone. much better than the n80 as it is more reliable and less klumpy looking. better features to and half the price. SE are deffinitly leading the market at the mo. get this phone and youll be impressed by how cool it is.
just a question! When you put a photo on the main screen as a wallpaper, does the photo fit full screen or does it have white "fill lines" across the top and bottom?
Battery life on the N73 is supposed to be much much better than N80. Most people report 2 - 3 days use before needing to recharge. This is partly because N73 doesn't have battery drain from WIFI.
Another phone to look at is the Samsung D900. Very thin, 3.2 Mpx, decent video capture, but not 3G. I am trialling one now.
If you are not fussed about the QVGA display you should also look at the K610. Same size as the K750 but with 3G also.
My choice is also between the K800, N73 and D900. The D900 is lovely but the lack of 3G is making me think the N73 might be for me. I am put off the K800 by the smaller phyiscal screen (I know the resolution is the same but I use my phone for web browsing quite a bit and the text is too small on the SE), hump on the back, very poor video capture resolution, and general ugliness.
Is it too bad ??? i interest in tis Hp...
Any one can suggest . Pls .......
hmm... the first time when i look at the official picture and reviews when the phone was first announce i was dissapointed then after that i decided that i will never buy this phone because it is soooo ugly.
GUESS WHAT? Now i'm having it IN MY HAND!! weird? not really... i am a fan of SE, so i check the dummy everytime they got the new one (i am working for a mobile phone company anyway). When i first time have a look at the dummy that was the time when i started to like the design, especially the back part. It is so sleek. i own K750 before this, and i can't refuse to think that the design ain't as good as K750 but still looks very very good. Somehow it even looks better and i dunno why. The display is simply stunning. The camera is superb, it exceeds one's expectation of what a mobile phone can do (still not as good as a real digicam though). The mp3 sound is not that much different from K750, but it has a better media player. The flash is amazing. The only thing that really concern me is the camera cover which i think will get scratch very easily (yet that's the bit that i love the most because it makes the phone looks shiny). Whats more.... I have no sort of complaint with this phone, everthing works perfectly. It actually exceeds my own expectation somehow about how the phone attract me ^__^... i thought i will love my k750 more.. but i started to change my mind already
generally a great ph but let down by an almost useless handsfree speaker and a couple of poor menu function (either hard to find or too long to find or just not there. ie changing keylock operation time, where is this feature???) and a totally inadequate instruction manual!!!!
Its.... a great I hav had for a week now, includes all the features that th d600 or n80 doesn't hav! This phone has a great camera effect and quality! Buy his phon you'll lov it.
That is why before you buy phone you want to make sure that phone is not build like Singapore, Gong Kong, Thailand
My phone was build in Japan. I have it for about 3 weeks now. No problems at all. Works like a charm.
Good Day To All (Especially ppl from S'pore)
Just to share my experience for this phone. I have bought this phone about 1 week ago and guess what, is now inside the service centre due to:
1) Keypad doesn't have tone even I set it.
2) While deleting messages either from inbox/sent folder, the screen hangs.
3) When message was received, no tones sounded even when tones was set to.
Well, I do believe that all the above mentioned are due to some software problems which causes this, anyway hope that after 'servicing' this phone will be in its best form.
Last of all, so far the design is still the most outstanding as compared to others.
IMPORTANT: Users in Middle East of sony k800...U will not be able to use ur new Etisalat sim card in this k800.Etisalat came out with a new version incompatible in k800..INQUIRE before buying...thanks to Gsmarena u finally knw abt it

Hi Rone =)
it can use a bluetooth headset even if its not stereo, although the sound wont be good.
also be aware that there might be some bluetooth headset thats not capable of playing music and is only for voice calls. you just need to ask the sales representative if its capable of doing that. or read the box or check on the internet if it can do music too.
hey guys i know this may sound stupid but does any one know how to play music through bluetooth . does it have to be with a stereo bluetooth or can i do it with any bluetooth?
I have a question to all user of this phone.
1. Is there a privacy option to protect videos,pictures, messages, etc. from unauthorized opening?
2. Can we block incoming messages from certain contacts
"WHOEVER" gave the suggestion about removing battery cover to put pressure on the SE logo area instead on the lower portion of the camera lens...
THANK YOU! your trick worked! =)
i appreciate it a lot.
its the first time i got help here in GSM arena that actually worked hehehe.
Thanks for the reply, I am thinking that I do not need a smartphone. The only thing I install are games.
For data I need 3G so I can use my laptop with my phone as a modem so K750/W800 are out or the equation.
How about K750/W800? I read that their battery life are more than average and goed camera (2 Mpx).
I think you don't need smartphone.
I have one reason for disliking this phone and that it has made my decision of what phone to upgrade too very difficult.
Had decided on the N80 after having a 6680 for a year but the battery life is frustrating on the 6680, espically if I forget to charge it every night as I usually findmyself with a flat battery mid afternoon on the second day. The N80 being worse of course put me off.
I will admit that I will miss some features of the S60 OS, the copy and paste key is great and very useful (unless the K800 has this facility) and active standby was useful for keeping my life in order.
Though I am not keen on the slide layout and I can see myself dropping the phone as it is top heavy when open and it may have WLAN and lots of things the K800 doesn't have but I am not sure if this will be a problem.
In which case I am looking at the K800 over the N80, for those people who have used both hopefully you can advise if this seems a suitable choice.
Basically I use my phone for personal and business use, use mainily minuites and can talk upto 3 hours in a day of I am busy. I like having contacts with multiple numbers for office, fax, mobile etc. Th eonly real smartphone feature I used on the 6680 was the calender on the active desktop but I managed without for several years. Email I can access via a wap site and my calender is online as I do not use Outlook. I do however use my mobile as a modem a lot which is probally why I don't use the smartphone functions as I have a laptop for word/excel/email etc.
Don't really take many pictures except for the odd one but when I go on holiday just one device would be useful but my 6680 is ok, appart from at night.
Also voice dialing, anybody got experiance of the K800. The 6680 is terrible, like the idea of the virtual tags of the N80 as I liked that on the V3i but to be honest I only ring a handful of people when I am on handsfree so not too hard to program tags but the 6680 is nowhere near as good as the 6310i was and I find myself having to say the tag 5 or 6 times.
Any advice would be useful as I am confused at the moment, thought about the N73 to avoide slide but again poorish battery life and not too keen on the looks.
