So I understand this is a good phone. Dani and F.E.A.R. proved that.
First of all, Walkman and CyberShot are just marketing brands. The "CyberShot" K550 produces lower quality pics than the older K750 (I tested!!)
Walkman and CyberShot phones have identical software (easy to demonstrate that), except for the media player and some camera features). I don't like this... X(
I wanted a software like SE because I'm familiar with it and it's good (seams more natural than Nokia's in my opinion). I used the search function on gsmarena.com and found Samsung E590, but it doesn't have nor adapter nor 3.5 mm jack on it.
I wanted to but a phone, but just I changed my mind to do nothing yet. So I still have a budget... One option was 6233, but doesn't have autofocus and I really need that. And I guess 6233 has similar software (or even identical) to 6288 which cannot zoom in on pictures like a Sony Er (I need that 2)
Can anyone help me and give me an idea on what phone to buy? Here are my requirements:
-3.5 mm jack or adapter* (if not in the box, at least to buy)
-microSD slot card preferable (far cheaper that Sony cards)
-posibility to zoom in on pictures when viewing them
-no clamshell, no slider
-preferably with no joystick
-small price tag (here on GSM Arena the price tag is number 3 (100-150 euros))
*I don't want a "music phone" but I want to connect it to my stereo sound sistem (for better quality sound)
1) Nokia 6233 doesn't have autofocus :( but has the rest (except probably the zoom thing)..
2) SE W810 has it all except the card, which is expensive and the 512 Mb included is too small and the extra money for a new 2 Gb card excedes the price tag and my budget :P (and it cand view .txt files)
3) Samsung E590 has everything except the 3.5 mm posibility. But it comes with the bonus of viewing doc, xls, pdf files
So if the phone I'm looking for doesn't exist I'll be forced to buy a cheap digital camera + SD card, a cheap 1-2 Gb mp3 player (for the presence of the 3.5 mm jack) and a cheap phone (or keep my SE K700) :\
Thank you in advance! I prefer being mailed to email@example.com
Got one for myself only yesterday after a lot of market and internet searching.i found it a better alternative compared to K550i.The 3D stereo effect of the speaker is truly amazing and beats all walkman phones.The resolution is the best amongst models avaliable at this price range.I simply love it,hope it lasts me long.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 19706233 is better in performance than W810. in sounds 6233 is louder and have two stereo speakers. Display: 6233 = 262144colours(240x320) / W810 = 256000(176x220) colours.
Themes: 6233= 3D animating icons( Changes with themes) / W810= Default icons( normal themes cant change icons)
Video: 6233= 640x480 resolution. W810= 176x144resolution.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hi.. for common performance like screen resolution &wideness & playing mp4 movies & external speakers loudness 6233 is much better than w810 the only point which w810 is superior is the headset which provide clear loud sound with mega bass which is a little abscent in 6233 cuz the sound through headset is alittle muffled .. chiao
6233 might beat Walkman phones in Loudness through earphones, but it Cant Beat Walkman's in terms of Sound Quality Output
6233 thrashes Walkman Phones in terms of Loudness and Sound Ouptput!!!!!!!!!!
iv just connected my Walkman earphones with it again and DAYAUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!

Anonymous, 03 Aug 2008hi friends, In my 6233 I am not able to see the call time running background during call. hen... moreyour right.as i know there is no way to see the call time untill it end. but you can try this. when your in a call go to the MENU > LOG > CALL DURATION. And there you will see your active call duration. and you can end your call from there by pressing end key, without returning. Remembering the numbers will make you easy to do this. EX: MENU> 3 > 7
Dani, 03 Aug 2008if you want a All-Rounder like 6233 with better features > 6220 Classic or N73 or 6500 Slideyour post is great dani. i think everyone who interest in both 6233 and walkman will accept your comment. its a good answer to all who confuse with, what is da best (6233, walkman,cyber-shot)
