Although this is a very good camera phone and is used by James Bond, Nokia with not so good in camera feature is the king of mobile phone anyway.
At the time i loved this phone for battery life and signal performance and it was ahead of it's time camera wise. Bu image quality was a blurry mess in my opinion
How else could you share it? Something better than Facebook existed at the time. MySpace.
At that time there were the Nokia users, the Sony Ericsson users and Motorola. Although my first mobile phone was a Nokia, my second more advanced device was a W810. Great camera. Much better than comparable Nokia devices to my eye. And the second and last SE phone I got was the P1, with its elegant design and great qwerty keyboard. I could type swiftly and precisely on it with all punctuations and accents and no need for autocorrect. Software keyboards on screen aren't a pleasure to use.
I loved this phone. It was my first phone having an astonishing camera!
Unfortunately the Sony smartphones are not anymore on the top of the phones regarding the camera, unfortunately for them this lack of camera oriented marketing generates for them a huge lost of market share!
It is unbelievable how a lot of phone makers uses Sony camera sensors building true technical marvels and Sony, still remains in shadow. Very pity !!!!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2020I miss those times. Never had the K800i because back then I was too young to have that amou... morethat was far better than mine for that time, mine was a Nokia (which I forgot the model) that doesn't support Java, browser, or even camera XD
I had the silver K800.
i actually wanted the James Bond edition (the color was mixed between black and silver),
but it costed more money than the regular ones, so i bought the silver ones.
Life was simple back then. You had sliding covers for the camera for privacy and lens protection. Good ol' days.
The Best and Brightest flash of all times, XENON!!!!
RN, 02 Aug 2020ah those times... the "un-boring-phone" eraI miss those times.
Never had the K800i because back then I was too young to have that amount of money for it, I had a W200i instead on Switch I wasted tons of time playing Asphalt, Pokémon Gold at 15fps in the GameBoy Java emulator and a lot of other Java games while listening to music.
I still have that phone somewhere, battery is near dead but it still works.
I had it
Best part of Sony phones is that they still have a 2 stage camera button. But nothing could replace a satisfying sliding camera cover especially ones that open the camera app.
My first camera phone :)
Had it... love it.
Especially that xenon flash which works wonders...
Brilliant phone indeed. I owned the K790 version which was essentially the same phone. The camera was phenomenal for the time for stills. Video was poor though. I think it maxed out at 144P, which was disappointing even back then.
Phones had so much personality back then. Things started going downhill when touchscreens gained popularity...
I stil have it. Brown colour in original packaging and all accessories.
Best non smartphone ever.
Viper, 02 Aug 2020maybe for you, mine K800i lasted quite long, 4 years then i sold it on my friend, before i bou... moreI owned a lot of phones, for me it's quite hard to even remeber something worth while I used to experience with my old handsets.
Maybe the old nGage, that I used with my mate to play multiplayer Puyo Puyo.
They were old dumb devices, with UIs and software that guaranteed headaches, a lot of them did not even had heaphone jack or it was utter tosh ...
Probably the only thing I miss is Nokia N900 keyboard.
The days when there was not really a smarphone, there were just phones.
Nostalgia and rose tinted glass sell I guess.
Fearghast, 02 Aug 2020As an owner of two of these phones, I can say: "I am so glad, this is behind us.". ... moremaybe for you, mine K800i lasted quite long, 4 years then i sold it on my friend, before i bought the K850i in 2008, i didn't want to sell K800i.. but my friend was quite annoying and bugging me, so one day i sold to him, he used it for another 2 years before someone stole it from him, back in 2006 i was the first owner of K800i in my town, i have such great memories with K800i that lasts even today
