I had the Sony w800 phone in 2006 when I started my first job. The sound from speakers were great for the time and I liked the fact that you got a 512mb memory card included. The camera was fine as well a 2mp one where you could print a 6 by 4 inch print of good quality.
The problem back then was :
- Sony had a different SD card module that was not widely available
- Slightly costly & battery backup was less w.r.t to nokia
- Symbian phones were expandable and supported various multimedia formats & games
Despite all, Sony built robust walkman series and i love them
I´ve the K750i still in use ... for nearly 15 Years (?)
... the batterie (accu) lasts more than two weeks
... the camera has a pretty nice macro-modus
krichards, 29 Jan 2020The best phone I had at that time I had was the k790. Without doubt a phone of the best there was!It all ended after the C510 for me .
The love for Xperia Devices ended with the Z5 premium.
Waiting for a comeback device from Sony .
OMG I Love the K750i - My biggest regret is "lending" the spare, boxed one I was keeping, to a friend who'd lost his mobile...who then subsequently had the K750i stolen soon after. It was such a Great phone to handle. Yes crude by today's standards of course but a design classic and was the first decent attempt to show the world what coupling a decent phone to a decent camera would look and feel like. IMHO it beats the W880 by a whisker in terms of taking the phone game to a whole new level within it's time context (W880 showed the world 3G phones could be skinny little bxtches, given 3G phones up to then were hwuge compared to 2G models - but it's camera was compromised, dropping AF).
I started with my very first mobile SE T105.. W550 from walkman series..K800 from Cybershot series and last Experia X10
Ahh ... the 750i ... back when you could hold on to a phone for a couple of years.... Hot damn that was a great phone had it nearly 6 years till the camera stopped working :(

Oh god.., the memories.
You just revived my teen years. I absolutely loved Sony Ericsson phones.
Talk about style, they all had uniqueness and screaming originality. You could easily tell one from the other from metres away.
Just our growing up years were awesome. I still remember putting my phone in the center of places I used to gather with mates. They were break dancing using my w550 stupidly loud speakers.
Well, another thing our smartphones can't do.
Sony Ericsson K750 was one of the best phones I ever used, that Cybershot cam and the shutter were just perfect and the Display was Sharp and bright.
One of the best phones that this brand has ever produced .
One of the cons that I would say was the headphones/charger .
this phone would have done wonders with a 3.5mm audio jack
K750 was my favourite phone fow many years. Still have pictures taken by him..
Great era! Supreme phones! Amazing experiences! Top quality! King of!
Didn't like the k750 or w800 due to the fiddly joystick. I had the w810 and still have it and still works except it only supports GPRS and the memory card slot is broke. Amazing phone and used it on my overseas travels and this was pre iPhone days so i used to get funny looks listening to music on it.
Loved SE walkman phones. I had the w810i and w910i. Problem with SE are the proprietary charging/headphone port. The w910i was a sexy design but the lcd flex will give problems in the long run
I had the K800. I remember I was so happy to have it, and it was a good camera phone. I had the N73 Music edition after, and there was not much of a difference in terms of image quality when there was enough light.
It wasn't just branding, the W800 came with in-ear headphones that were much better than the K750 regular earbuds.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2020So? Explains why they are failing?They can pull a media phone anytime... And it will rock the s#it out of everything out there.... But people around here don't deserve SONY. Too much hate for it! In the CrApple era where everything is default and ready to use...you cannnot succeed... Give apple users a music player with an equaliser aside.... They'll call it crap.... And the same comes in the camera department... starting with dxomark and going to the end user.... Nobody give a sweat to achieve.... Everyone expects " shot and process"-Dslr quality... Work your brain a bit... Why call a phone smart when you are not...?
