Purchased this phone when my k800i got stolen and my verdict is, apart from the camera which just slightly loses out to k800i in terms of macro (close shot) and the better flash light (xenon) in k800i, everything is 6288 beat it.
First, screen is bigger, then the keypads which is WAY better! Sony ericsson really don't learn when many previous user like me complain about thier stiff and jumper together keypads used in k750i and still produces the exactly the same one for k800i. The 5 way directional pad in 6288 is also much preferred over k800i's joystick which is also unchanged from k750i.
Last but not least just something i discovered.. do you guys know that the sound quality from 6288 (i believed from most nokia phones too) beat k800i! Yes it does!
I got a HPM 70 (from w810i) for k800i and had been using it for mp3 purpose, and the new music adapter nokia AD-41 (supposely for n series musuic edition) for my 6288 in order to use the normal 3.5mm earphone and sound quality from 6288 is better.
I further verify this when i plug in hpm 70 earphone into the AD41 and used it on 6288. The high's and low's pitch and quality from 6288 beats k800i though not much but pretty obvious.
I advice everyone who wanted to use their nokia mobile phone as a music player the buyt AD-41 music 3.5mm earphone adapter for their nokia mobile utilising POP PORT (i.e. n73, 6233, 6280, n70) Sound quality is superb when a quality earphone is inserted.
It's not true to say that only Sony ericsson's mobile phone especially walkman series produces good audio quality. The only thing matters is Sony Ericsson provides a good earphone within standard package and nokia's standard headset suck!
Try it. And you won't go back and sony ericsson's walkman again.
(p.s. my brother is still using k800i and i had w810i for comparison with my current new nokia 6288)

thiz phone has the same 0S like 6280 ?(I know it's not a 0S,(like a 0S) "h52 or someting like)?
Joseph: This phone has a speaker on the left which allows you to play mp3 without using headphone.
Hi guys,, im planning to buy this fone... and i wanna ask if this fone has a speaker outside the fone so u can play ur mp3's without headphones... thanks
Another thing, i've been sliding this phone like hell... but it still function well unlike 6280
I've been using this phone for a month... in brief, like it very much! FYI, the front camera could only be used for video call and the voice tag function is not available with this phone. I dont have any problem with the camera (love the high resolution).... the sound is considerably good (better than N70)
The phone is really user friendly. The only problem while using voice tag. Fine there is inbuilt voice tag which is realy not useful because the inbuilt voice tag is not matching with our real voice. The funny part is there is no option for create a voice tag manually !
i have bought 6288 thinking that it has got camera both at the front and rear side but i am now a little confused on how to use the front i dont think u do it for sales purpose bye bye!
hi there guys,
i have one question about this phone.
is it symbian? i'd like to buy one but i want to know this thing about it.
can anybody please answer through an email at email@example.com
To Bobby: NO,man.This is an example of how a good phone should be.I have changed many phones.In cheap phones segment,SE does better I must admit.But in mid-range and above,NOKIA is unbeatable.If you are interested in having a reliable and fast phone(not camera,walkman etc.) mid-range NOKIA phones like this are the solution.
