the only negative thing i can find about this phone is the video recording feature which is QCIF!!! that is just terrible! if it was VGA"30fps" recording like the Nokia N93 this phone would be THE ultimate cell phone for sure for many years to come :D
i had used this phone, i was surprised due to its heavy weight. the physical appearance do not show its high profile set, infact it looks like an ordinary sony ericsson model.
My friend has the N80, he did'nt want to wait for the K800i. So when I eventually got my K800i last week, he was almost in tears when he saw the picture quality. We both took pics with our phones, and compared them, pic for pic. Now he wants to sell his N80 and buy a K800i. He bought the N80 because he thought it would be cool to have a phone with WIFI. But, who needs a phone with WIFI, when your laptop/notebook has W-Lan.
The K800i is a Great phone, with Unrivalled pictures. Good TV ad too.
The only thing that stop me to buy it is the joystick. This is couse I heard a lot of bad things about K750 ant W800 joisticks.
I want to invest my money in sometings durable (at least 2 years). And I doubt if this joystick will last for more than year. Well if SE are upgrade joystick technology, may be will last for more, but... I'm not so sure...
I've had this thing for a week now. The features on the phone are top notch. My one greatest rumble with this phone is the joystick. It is insanely fustrating to use. For example, when i go too far down the contact list, i have to hold the joystick for one second for it to go up and sometimes its skips a contact by going up more than one at a time. Has anyone experienced this problem?
Which one is best w550i or w950i...is W550i memory is not expandable...Jus tel me which one is best or is any other mobile better than this...but the price should be between 16k to 20 k...not more than that...
Go with the k800i. Trust me. You won't regret it. Let me give you 2 simple reasons why.
1) You won't ever need anything other than a good MP3 and a good camera. All the so called "cool" features, most consumers never ever used. And btw, the camera on the k800 is fantastic.
2) It's cheaper. Let's face it, in 2 years, you will change the phone. Buy SMART.
Hey i got my phone the 3rd week of july 2006. I am proud to say that i am the only one in Montreal who have this phone.Originally i was a Nokia user, but eversince i baught the p910i ( which decieved me because of its crappy battery , ive decided to take a shot at SE. The first second i saw some pictures of the K800i, i fell in love and i wanted the phone badly. What can i say, its the best phone ive ever purchased and invested in. The battery is amazing long battery life, the camera is extraordinary and every single feature of this hot phone are amazing. To top it off, id give this phone 15 / 10 amazing,.

am i taking a right decision....
the camera + the sound quality matters a lot for me....
plzzz reply frens and help me out...
Hi! I got my phone last friday and Im ultra satisfied with it, this is my fist SE phone, since i was a nokia user before, and man! this thing is great... I didnt expect it to have such an affordable price ( considering the specs ) compared to N80 that costs more than $100, which the only different difference is WLAN and EDGE, which I think i will not actually need.
When I got the phone, it wasnt even in the Sony-ericsson shop yet ( i was told it will be available next MONTH! ) every friend that sees my phone was in AWE of the cybershot phone (even my friend with an N80).
Picture quality is superb! Imaging functions are cool. messaging is good. Media player is Great, considering that its not walkman. Organizer, Copy and paste function, internet, Games, Photo-VideoDJ, recorder all jampacked on this phone. All I can say man is this is Very Good... Ehem... SUPERB fo a phone.
I think Nokia has good phones, but like others say, once you get a new Nokia phone, wait for a few weeks and theres a new release, which means your phones value will depreciate. I have nothing against nokia considering I liked thier phones before and was using them, but man, their having a lot of competition right now... and they better watch out.
aman, I tried to create a text message it I was able to create up to 1150 characters and i think its more than that because I stopped and got tired.
To Andrew (Can I call u Andy?)
E-series?...pls that is one ugly phone.
If u want true connectivity than go get urself the SE P990i.
Sheer brilliance. Once again with the release of the P990i SE resets the 'benchmark' with smartphones.
Err..did someone say 'communicator?' What's that?...lol
If this you posted is correct Aman, i think that Nokia will continue on top, because of N-Series and E-Series... Optical Zoom... bah! Camera is not all in a cellphone, conectivity and call quality is the important... Who cares about Carl Zeiss lens?
If you want Carl Zeiss lens, Buy a Digital Camera... I use cellphone to make calls and to use conectivity ressources... that's why I have a Nokia E70.
This is a great phone afterall... But no EDGE and no WLAN, for me do not fit... The camera is the same that i have...
Sony Cyber-Shot 3.2 MP +Xenon Flash...
Bought it for US$150 and my Nokia E70 for US$400
I will not pay 500 bucks for a phone who hasn't an OS not either a WLAN connectivity...
Hi guys I found this post on the net, is it true?
Pls post ur comments..
"As you may know Sony has partially overtaken the Camera business from Konica-Minolta. Konica-Minolta used to have the first ultra compact in-body folded optics zooming lens system (see picture) in the Dimage X series. The very last model, known as Dimage X1 is optically stabilized. I've heard from some non-trusted source that Sony Ericsson is willing to introduce the folded optics technology in the upcoming flagship CyberShot phone to ensure 3x optical zoom along with CCD sensor in and extremely compact size. One should also take it into account that Konica-Minolta Dimage X1 with the optically stabilized folded zooming lens system is only 19.5 mm thick and has 95 x 68 mm dimensions. (The complete lens system including the CCD sensor and shifting mechanics is less than 15 x 20 x 60 mm). Due to the strange coincidence that rumors might be true. What actually means a renaissance in digital imaging. "
If it is true...then I think that DOOMS DAY is even more near to Nokia than we anticipated..lol..as it is Nokia really struggles to compete in the multimedia department. ;-)
wattup ppl! just bought the k800i n im pretty satisfied. the only thing that im not happy wit is that i can only ype 160 characters per sms! that sux! is there something im missing? like for instance, increasing it the option section?

Great phone but am having problems with sim contact list. anything transferred from my old sim card from my previous phone, shows up on the sim contact list with a sim card symbol on the K800 contact list. anything I now add to the sim card contact list, either by copying or adding directly, does not have a sim symbol in the display although the list says the number is stored. why is this?
If myphone crushes due to m2 what should i do??
And i have a problem in loading my phone memory i start copying all the contacts in my sim card but if someone calls me or txt me.. it didnt register there names..
can anyone answer this ISSUES ..
Thanks in advance
