K5oois the one of the best mobile in any kind of Camera phone, its take good pictures and movies but i feel some problumes of its using,it is a big change in mobile phones industries
K500 is like all SE phones: looks good, many features, poor software. I have owned this phone for 4 months now and i slowly discover the mistake i did not buying a nokia. The software of K500 simply sucks: when i browse the menu a little faster it crashes for about 10 seconds, sometimes when least expected the phone crashes without coming back, i have tot take out the battery and put it back in in order to make it work again; yes, i heard about the firmware update, but where i live i loose my warranty if i update it because we don't have any Sony-Ericsson dealer in our town and i have to pay a phone repair shop to update it. Silly huh? and the extended picture mode of the phone is crap, my 10$ webcam looks better than this, and the 12 mb memory simply kills any enjoyment you may have of putting some mp3s on it and use it as a portable mp3 player. But the design of the phone is cool and the features are impressive for its price. So if you want a phone just to impress your friends with it it's a good cheap choise. If you want a good, stable and reliable phone that will last for more than an year search for another model, or better yet another brand, cause this one is GARBAGE.
I am confused about the picture resolution. The specification shows VGA 640*480 but I get the option for 1280*960 also and I have taken pictures in that resolution (at least thats what the picture info shows). can anyone explain this.
this is the litle brother of k700
.......anyway it is very good & it's VGA camera resolution is 1280*960 extended mode..
buy it ..you won't regret...
yes, it has a speaker phone. during call, you can go into menu and turn on the speaker.
For multicharacter search in phone book, just type the characters in succession fast enough. I have tried it and it works.
Well, i owned a Sony Ericsson(SE) K500i for 2 months ago. Before I bought it, I've compared with other SE competitor's main feature phones which are similar to SE k500i. For instance, Alcatel OT 556, Motorola E398, and Sagem My S-7. The main specifications I've compared with them are color screen, Video/camera, MP3, Memory space and Connectivities. All phone models are 65k of TFT color screen except Alcatel is 65k of CTSN color screen. Next, Alcatel OT 556, Motorola E398 and Sagem MY S-7 have integrated with a 640x480 pixels of VGA camera. However, SE k500i has a integrated of 1280x960(extended) pixels of VGA camera. Honestly, in camera capture picture quality, OT 556 is the clearest one and following by SE k500i. Even though Moto E398 has a built-in flash VGA camera but its capture video and picture quality is the worst one out of these 3 phone models. Come to MP3 player, SE K500i has a crystal sound of MP3 stereo music quality(128kbs bit rate). Even though at 44khz 64kbs bit rate, its sound quality still can be heard very clearly. The E398 has 3D surround sound, but not actual is. The most disappointed part on SE K500i is memory space available in phone. It has only 12mb (3 times of OT556) of memory space. The S-7 and E398 beat K500i, because they have memory card supported. Last, is phone connectivities supported. Alcatel OT556 has only infrared port but both SE k500i and Sagem S-7 have also USB port supported. However, Motorola E398 has high-tech connection - bluetooth. Anyway, in my final decision to decide which phone i should buy was SE K500i. Why? It is because SE k500i has its special features that these 3 phone models are not supported such as Music DJ, MP3 equalizer, PlayNow, 3D graphic/gaming(java), and Streaming video.
p/s: For those who haven't owned a MP3-Camera phone, choose SE K500i (more economic) or K700i (same features with K500i but it support Radio FM and Bluetooth and its price is more expensive). You will found WORTHY and NOT REGRETED after you bought it.
Press and hold the 0 button for +. This phone does not have bluetooth.
