I have this phone since september and it seems a good devide...the camera is very very good...you only need good light-. The worts is the display and the speaker. Overall:8/10
sound not bad,
and the camera super great,
just the keypad a bit hard 2 type msg,
but still acceptable
overall, i love tis phone!!
this is a very low quality phone. sound is very slow, camera pic is very poor. overall as to my point of view don't buy this phone
@sameer, I mean edit ringtone in computer through Sony sound forge , boost its volume and then use in phone,it sounds loud.
There r some java video player software for mobile in mobile9.com ,use it in your 6233, may be it can fast forward video,there r also some more software like pdf reader,ms office doccument file reader, try it
this fone has Micro Stick??? ohhhh my god,, very expensive MMC, i can buy a 2gb Micro SD Card of N6233 in the price of 512 MB of your Micro stick,, hahahaha
this fone do not have 3G,, Sucks Big time!!!
@kunal, just waana say last thing about this phone, the screen of K550 is TFD not TFT, ya i know it saves some battery life,but hello, its inferior to TFT even my old K700 has TFT screen, so bad SONYERICSSON you have to look VIDEO RECORDING aspect also which is quite bad, O.k its all over now, can you tell me if i can use sony sound forge in my 6233, or some other kind of, does it not make my spoeakers vulnerable.
hi DPS? how are you? thanks for the statement =) well. i still dont buy it till now. hope u would still remember my name
To improve battry life of k550, decrease brightness of display .my k550 battry works for 3 days, To increase ringtone volume assign higher bitrate ringtones do not use midi format ringtones, if u want very high volume , edit mp3 ringtone in Sony Sound forge software and increase amplitude of mp3 waveform, k550 sounds very loud.
@kunal. just face the truth man, just read out your forum,everyone is complaining about this mobile even after lester post, 2 guys that post after him also complains about K550i hehehehehe,and by the way i have used W550i, K700i,W700iand also K750i for some time, and do you know they all were great handset, K750 the most, to me K750 and W700 are still superior to this K550i, and then the main problem of K series is the horrible joystic and also the worst battery life like K550 also had, and on the SYMBIAN phone, just come to 6233 FORUM i will explain you there.
I bought this fone at the end of nov 07 and hav faced no problems but now i have many problems altogether like the fone sometimes hangs and operates late zero and * button dont work properly pls send me some solutions.pls!pls!
handset is good but sound is very low & cybershot is not working properly
@Lester ,sameer ,Use k550 actually and then make statement,Do not misguide people.....
On 6233 forum u r saying ,'serise 40 is better than symbian os'????????
By wathing only photo and reading something, u people r saying k550 is bad and 6233 is better? I had 6233 for 2 month and now this,I know actually, how both phones r.
k550 is best......
I know screen resolution of 6233 is larger but see actually not much diffrence is notice ,k550 screen is as good as 6233.
@sameer ,u r saying ,"6233 consumes more memory because it got superior display and large screen", you know nothing ,there r photo compression techniqes,nokia not good in that ,thats why photo size increases,doesnt mean that superior quality, compare 6233 1.5mb photo and k550 0.5mb photo. k550 alwys better,
screen size? 6233 screen 30mm*40mm, k550 screen 31mm*39mm, large screen????? both r nearly same, 6233 has larger pixels,but see actually,both screen quality r nearly same,
Do u know what is auto focus? It is not present in 6233, flash ? not present in 6233? cant do anything in night.......6233 takes very large time to capture photo ,look like it is hanged,....!
fast moving objects ,6233 can not take clear photo(it will take photo when object is gone from photo)because no sports mode........
no lens cover to protect ,u will see scraches,fingure prints in ur photo,
There r seven camera modes in k550 according to condition,low light ,very dark light etc, in 6233 only one night mode.....
There is also few more in k550 ,Panorama mode,u can take nearly 180 degree photo,6233 can not .........one more Metering mode in k550, not in 6233....
K550 is Cyber shot camera phone, 6233 is cheap series 40 camera phone................
Only better thing in 6233 is VGA recording.......
I agree 6233 speaker sound is large than any mobile phone ,even w550 walkman,......but tell me what is its use? in noisy places? k550 speaker is sufficient,I never feel any problem ?
sound quality? both phone has equal sound quality,but I have installed w610 firmware in my k550, thats why I have walkman player in my k550,with Megabass,just turn on it,now my sound quality becomes better than any non walkman mobile, adjust equilliser of 6233 any how,u cant get that .................
about software, 6233 series 40, very very slow ,can not multitask ,6233 hangs many times (that is why I sell my 6233 and buy this k550), no mass storage,drivers must required................k550 has mass storage
Video player, 6233 can not forward video,can not adjust video size as we want, k550 has very nice video player ,with fast forward,video size adjust is present like auto adjust,full screen ,and best thing is u can zoom video while watching like photo zoom which is good to avoid black strips in wide screen video, While watching photos 6233 can zoom only 2 steps (typical series 40 poor zoom style),k550 can zoom picture smoothly upto 32x zoom,very easy to use ...
k550 is slim ,light weight and 6233 is ugly ,fat ,heavy,
6233 has only 6mb internal memory(alwys crying 'not enough memory'),k550 has 74mb internal memory , as u increase memory card size 6233 becomes slow slow and slow,k550 does not slow
ok .........now tell me WHY 6233 IS BETTER THAN K550?
@kunal, youn can go on and on and on. but the fact of the matter, 6233 is superior to it, look at your k550 forum, everybody is feeling sorry that he buyed k550 and look at our forum noone is compalaining, everyone says it rock. 6233 consumes more memory because it got suoerior display and large screen. and lol, you are questioning 6233 speakers, you must be drinking something. this phone has crappy video,horrible keypads,
This cell is great. As usual SE did a good job. Personally I think this the best successor for unreplacable SE T630. The only con I have noticed is that dust gets really quick under screen's protective glass (after two months of usage). I have not seen any other complains about dust on the screen, so I assume, that this is my model defect.
Ok @ Newton Leonardo ... I remembered your name... Well i dont know about the rest of the world but... I DONT care if you're gonna buy it or not... I am ... The sound quality is not low... and pictures are pretty good ... The designs are great and flashed it rocks... I would recommend it and buy it... So ok we got you dont wanna buy it... But stating it like 999 times is SPAM ... Boo!
loudness of k55o can be in creased by changing sound drivers, or it is depended on ringtone file,I did one thing ,increase amplitude of ringtone by using software sony sound forge,it rings very loud
k550 is better than nokia 6233, I had 6233 ,I sell it and buy this. can not multitask in 6233,k550 can run 10 games or any other application at same time (I have confirmed it on my k550),6233 can not forward video ,no auto focus in 6233,camera of 6233 takes 1.5mb size bad and poor photos,k550 takes 0.5mb size best photos,6233 only takes more memory with less quality,6233 is bulky ,fat. k550 is slim ,light weight. Sound is also better of k550 than 6233,loudness of 6233 is useless...............many things.....................k550 is better than 6233
