I've upgraded my phone to C702. (From K550) Basically, just for the splash resistant feature.
But it came with much more features i wasn't expecting. I'm really very pleased with this product.
GPS! This proves very useful, especially on my provincial tours. Coupled with built-in Google Map, it helps me track my routes thru never-been-to towns, and helps me find my way thru alternate routes. I never expect its GPS to be so accurate. I stood at the main gate of our place, and the GPS really points to the gate from the satellite photo. I move to the other side, the blinker moved accordingly, as well. Amazing!
The run-away winner Text Messaging convenience of Sony Ericsson comes with even more enhancements! This really puts Nokia, even the touted N series, in the trash bin.
The camera is impressive. I came from a few SE camera phones which i find really good. So no need to explain the photo quality. But this one amazes me more. The face-detection and short-cut keys are a welcome new features. The press-halfway camera button of previous SE phones were always the best for auto-focus. Now, even the center softkey can do the same press-halfway auto-focus as well! Very convenient!
The short cuts, activity menu, main menus all get nice improvements.
And there's so much more. It's really not easy to enumerate them all. Maybe tomorrow, i'll discover some more new enhancements.
Recommended. The best camera-GPS phone i've ever seen and tried.
I want to buy this phone but i found out that digital zoom is only applied on vga mode that 3X. is it true? when u use the 3.2 mp there is no zooming.. comment about this phone in regards of cybershot.
Has anybody experience with GpsMid on C702? GpsMid seems to have offline maps and in the developer version even voice routing.
This phone is as same as K810i or K800i. But it has GPS function. That is the difference between this 3 phones. But I like the K810i design more because it looks more elegant and luxurious.
Srchks, 21 Sep 2008Can anyone please tell me if GPS requires any service plan or comes with the phone free with/w... moreIf you do not require maps or routing you can use gps for free with this phone (if you turn a-gps off). For maps and routing you require either internet from the phone or a third party offline solution - which are rare and just evolving.
Can anyone please tell me if GPS requires any service plan or comes with the phone free with/without internet connection. Any comments on GPS appreciated. Also have anyone used 3G yet in USA with this phone.
