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)
Yes, it is out in the States. I am in NYC and i just got one about a week ago. I love it!!
Where are you exactly? its kinda hard to find.
So i see that many people have the E398 phone, but I can't find it anywhere! Is it out in America yet!? I really want it, but dont know where to find it! Please help!
