I just got my SE 550i yesterday. I am disappointed that in powersave the screen goes completely black and doesn't even show the clock like my old SE T610. At times, it made me uncertain if the phone was even on since the screen was completely black. Or is there an option for that?
Like many others have commented, I too was disappointed with the camera. There are some nifty camera features but the quality is rather poor. Quality appeared to be better in better lit places like inside a mall.
Another thing I'm unhappy about is how flimsy it feels in my hands. It doesnt feel solid in my hands. If I put any pressure on it, it has a cracking/squeaking sound. Is that just my phone?
I bought the K550i and I'm very happy with it. The camera is better than I supposed before look it in my hand. The buttons aren't too small and we can press without problem. The K550i is a fantastic MP3 player and FM radio. The sound has a higher quality near of the serie 'W' (walkman). I like the SE products and I think they have the best multimedia phones on the market.
yes it has.
I had 790i pressing its jostick button is also used to take a picture (this feature is not availoble in 750i). can anyone tell me if k550i has this feature.
i don noe why k550 cant zoom in camera mode except set to vga(2.2x).. even k750 can zoom 4x..
4 those who cant take capture in dark area, u can try set to twilight potrait + flash
To anyone whos got this phone, is it loud when you play the songs?
is there a limit , like alot of other SE phones , on the number of messages one can store, on the 550i ... ???
the new k550i cybershot sucks big time..
it call itself cybershot but when u take picture at night likewise in a club,the picture is not clear at all compare to the k750i..
if u use k750i,try to turn on the night mode plus the flash..
it will give u a superclear picture even in a dark room..
most of all..to anyone who wanna get the k550i cybershot,pls think twise before buy it..to me its not worth it cuz the headline(cybershot) really not as what u want it to be..
if u realy into cybershot,get ur hand on the k810i..
good phone with a superclear 3.2mp camera..clear at anytime & anywhere..top that
u can get enough good music quality by the equalizer settings.. its enough,but cant compare with nokias.. cyber shots are made for espaecially taking photos, it's a concept cellphone.. if u want all in one get a brick like nokia..
how come my phone speaker not as good as sony-ericsson k750i speaker? say!!!!!!!!!!!!
yes i am an owner of this phone and i believe the speaker is very loud considering its not a walkman phone. obviously the walkman speakers are better as they are focussed to be good in the music depart ment as this is a camera phone so they focus on the camera. so regarding your query i think the speaker is fine.
Is the loudspeaker of K550i good enough (i mean LOUD)? I've heard the volume is quite low. Owners please comment.
bought it yesterday, u can't use the phone when recharging, the screen goes totally black on powersave mode, photo quality is enough good, but can't say the same thing for video.. the phone's enough good for the price, also looks smart and smaller than those huge nokias.. i was thinking of getting a nokia but u can't hold it with one hand:)
Can give 8/10 to k550i
i can't understand GSMArena saying this...
"Web browser doesn’t live up to the challenge"
they explained that the imode cuts down the web browser capabilities of this im phone. what if they have used the real K550 cybershot? i doubt that the non imode version will do the same as the IM because i have red the W710 review and it enables landscape web browsing and as far as i know the K550 and W710 shares same platform JP-7 with K500 having the new netfront 3.3 (same with W880's one) internet browser. i think gsmarena shoudn't say that.
Is K550i shipped with the walkman series headset?
Just wondering, for all the reviews up here, how come there is never one phone without a disaventage?
K750i is better than this one. i am not going to pay a higher amount for EDGE. instead i would have given it a consideration if it had 3G. also the memory card of 550i is costlier then 750i so why go in for this one. both have same screen resolution.
Yes that's right , in powersave mode the screen is completely black.
Hi e_p_a_k ,
Well yes the light only flashes brightly when it actually takes the picture.
is the flash here the steady, constant photolight like with the k750i or more like the one that switches on only at the moment of capture like in the k800i?
