I've taken shots in the Himalayas and anyone would think the pics have been shot by a 7 pixel camera at least. Funny thing is, whoever I knew I had this phone , lost it. The latest victim-- me :( , It was stolen today. But I'm so delighted with the features, I'm set to buy this and only this model again.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2009is there call recorder in it??Yes - there is a call recorder, but it produces "beep" every 20 seconds. And this "beep" is heard on both phones (In your phone and in onother too).
This phone was great, but I've lost it.
The camera is excellent in daylight, I have absolutelly amazing shots with it, it's unbeliavable, some professional photographers thought that shots was taken by professional cameras, but it was taken by an simple K550i without any mods. :)
