Hi guys, i found this great site that gives a comparison of picture quality taken by both K700 and E398. The website is in Chinese and is a bit slow to load. But please be patient and you will be able to see the picture comparison of these two great phones.
Hi guys, anybody has tried uploading mpeg4 videos into the e398? Any idea if the video playback is smooth or jerky?
Correct. no infrared. But the USB synch (fastest) and the Bluetooth (wireless!!) more than makes up for it. You can sit in your living room while your computer is in the bedroom, and transfer files. Cant do that with IR!
I dont have the k700, so I cant compare picture quality. BUT, the cam on the E398 is very good. You can adjust the BRIGHTNESS of the image, and you can even adjust the EXPOSURE. It has preset white balance lighting conditions (you can set to Auto, Sunny, Cloudy, Indoor Home, Indoor Office, Night). Also RESOLUTION and SHUTTER TONE.
Yes, the "flash" on this camera is like the ones on most: its not a real camera "flash" but more of a flashlight that stays on.
The camera is 300k and yes the flash stay on as long as we didn't off it.The brightness of the photos can be adjusted as well.You don't need the flash in a well lighted condition.Picture quality are quite good actually.As 4 the mp3 it really played superb sounds.Got it a week a ago and loved it.
is the fones flash capable of being turned on continuously to use it for a flashlight?
could anyone confirm this for me
is the camera quality better than the SE k700? n is the camera 300K pixels??
i heard that the E398`s camera takes pictures that appear to be dark n gloomy n the flash is not as bright compared to SE K700
thx for the help
unfortunately it has no infrared. but i think the 3d sound stereo is bombastic
is the SMS speed laggy ? thx for the help....
btw where do i find it in singapore n does it have the white/red colorway of the fone? thx for the help
agreed that this phone is pretty costly in Singapore. The cheapest I found is S$598 (GST inclusive) at MoblieSquare without line and it is a local set. Went to a few shops to try out the phone. was particularly impressed by its MP3 quality over the headset. In fact, the quality is better than the MP3 player i am currently using. If u r using it primarily for its MP3, I will say go for it and u will not regret. I am hoping that the price will drop further but it seems that it has stablised at S$598.
ah thanks alot...the price is still pretty steep here in singapore but i expect it to drop after a few months...Thanks alot for your information
The mp3 quality is quite excellent -- the same as an ipod or anything else. Its mp3, so the sound should be the same, as long as you're listening w/ good headphones. The speakers are just OK, and will use up your battery, but for a CELL PHONE, they are damn good.
As for speed, I notice a bit of lag when reading from the SIM, or loading a menu the first time, but nothing unusual. all SIM phones do this to some extent.
and i really do agree that the e398 is much better then the k700.30 something MB of memory,non upgradeable is really ridiculous.You can only fit about 8 songs,compared to if you installed a 512 MB card into the e398 that will like you play over a 100 songs.
hi there guy...i'm thinking of buying this phone but before i make the final decision...I need to know the quality of the mp3 player.Is it as good as a standalone mp3 player or is it as crappy as the nokia 7610?Because i will be using primarily the mp3 function.Thanks alot!
Why is this phone for the younger crowd? Does it mean the older crowd do not like entertainment? Older crowd do not listen to songs? Older crowd do not like singing? Older crowd do not know what the hell is MP3??? Ha.. Ridiculous!
E398 have expanded memory but not K700.
E398 have 3D stereo speaker but not K700.
With mp3/video player u need expandable memory that is y E398 is better than K700.
that is y E
Im on the west coast, nevada. What phone company do you have? Sometimes only certain companies carry the phone.
I tink i gonna sell my 3100 n T610 in favour of E398. It's a SGD200 bucks price diff between k700 and e398! I'd wanna try Moto.. don't quite like the lagg of T610 sms, even after firmware upgd (hence i got 3100). juz wondering... why wanna radio n poly tones, when u can play mp3 and use it as yr ringtone? beside.. from wad i know.. k700 doesn't have expansion slots (though it has a whopping memory for a hp)
