IMHO I think the phone so far has fulfilled all my expectations regarding quality. Also, if you read through the pages in this site you will find very few people that express quality problems!
hi, how wud u rate this fone wid overall quality n reliability?? any answers from ppl wid da fone thnx!
can anyone tell me where to get the driver for the k300 i want to install it on my computer
The number of photos that can be stored in normal VGA 640x480 mode depends on the qulaity of the pictures (dark pictures take less space). The photos are between 25-50kB each. It also depends if you store other games/videos etc. To begin with you have between 10-12 Mb free space depending on which operator you chose. If you just keep photos you can store between 200-400 pictures in the phone.
There is a setting (press "more" when in video mode that allows the video recording time to be unlimited. However, please note that the video recording is most suitable for viewing in the phone. Also, if you chose the video recording time to be unlimited you cannot send it as an MMS.
Thank you for your reply. I have done some more research and you are totally correct. The SAR value for this phone is only 0.70 units. So I'm buying it!
Hi, nice 4n @ nice price. I want to buy 1 from Sri Lanka.
Thus I also want to know whether how many photos can be taken in normal mode & how long is the video recording time. Please respond me. Thanks!
had anyone prblem with the joistyck at thi sony ericsson k300i???????,or other problem with keypad!!!!ansver please
that is NOT true! I have spread the news of this great phone to all my friends and family and I have never heard this from anyone! You can safely rely on the K300!
I really like the K300i and wanna buy it. But lotta old users have told me that this phone tends to give head-aches due to the radiation?!! More than the same prolonged use in other mobiles. Is this true?
1) battery standby time: it does sound as you might have a problem, Did you have this kind of problem previously with other phones? I mean, if you live somewhere always far away from the GSM base station your phone will always be working on top effect. Also, when you speak in the phone, the standyby time will quickly become quite less. However, I usually load the battery 1-2 times/week. I get 2-3 calls/day of 5 minutes, I send 1-2 mms/day. I dont't play games or listen to music. I take 4-5 pictures/day... Again, this is highly subjective; I have very good connection to a nearby base station...
2) GPRS. If you know you are in a place with GPRS and the GPRS icon is not on you should contact Sony Ericsson helpdesk (information is available on their web). They should be able to help you further! :o)
Thank you very much for your quick response Taimur! You helped me decide, I will buy this phone. Just cant't wait to make some nice MP3 ring tones out of songs from my favourite CDs! ;-)
Well quality of mp3 is very very good & secondly it depends on u that the mp3 tone or song is in how much kb/sec.
I have a tone & its 128 kb/s in my mobile & its so loud, clear in my mobile that even in a crowdy area , one can hear it .
secondly, u can transfer tones through infrared/usb.
Hi, I am very inclined to buying this phone but first I would like to ask someone who owns one about the quakity of the mp3 playback. Is is loud and clear enough? I have heard that the ringtones a clear but I wanted to know spwcifically about MP3 ring tones. Another thing is that i've read about those MP3 tones being downloaded via a service called "PlayNow™". Is that the only way to get nem MP3 rings or can I use my data cable to transfer ans use them as ringtones? Thank you in advance for your responses.
many thanks for the prompt reply!
I DON'T play games and listen to music on my cp. my cp is for its "intended use only". i mean by that, texting and calling only. well, taking photo sometimes on unresistable targets, hehe!
my cp's light is on "power save". i don't even put it in "vibra" mode. audio is on level 3 only but is already loud for me. i've checked all other settings and they're okey. btw, i'm on a prepaid account right now. it means, i load credits to the cp now and then for me to enable to text & call but i'm planning to switch to a postpaid account in the immediate future.
the GPRS icon (thin blue L light above the batt) shows itself for a FEW seconds after i turned ON the cp after charging. in previous post, i mean after inserting the batt and turning the cp ON. then, it will fade away. i don't know why? does this mean, my GPRS is not functioning?
again, many thanks! i really appreciate the clarification here esp. coming from Colnagoguy.
1) Are you using the K300 for playing games/music etc? This takes a lot of battery juice! Also check on menu - settings - display (you move your joystick to the right 2 times) - Light: check that it is on "power save"
2) Your GPRS icon is gone after a few seconds after you insert WHAT?
Can anyone tell me that which extensions are supported by K300i?
& one thing more , i read somewhere that this mobiles also supports aac extension for songs, but when I transfered to my mobile , it wasn't working & was transfered to " others " folder
somebody PLEASE help me...
my sis bought me this cp days back in KSA. the store where they bought it, charged & tested the batt for a while, not a first full charging as it should be.
now, the batt lasts only 2 days!! is there and indication when the battery is already full when charging? i can only see "charging" indication. if i see the batt is full (there's no more WHITE part moving on and off on the cp)then that's the time i unplugged it.
should i buy a new one or have the batt replace or check by the accredited supplier?
i hate on keep charging the the cp every 2 days! if i'm the one buy a phone, my number ONE consideration is battery standby & talk time!
one more thing, my cp GPRS icon is gone after a few seconds after i insert it. is there something wrong here?
much thanks in advance!
