I bought this phone at sony ericsson store and hey it's great! Photos are great, looks of the phone is very nice, i was using nokia 6280 before and i would say that this phone is hot!
well, friends i have study a lot about se k550i , k750i, and w810i, i think among this 3 phone:
for photography SE 750i is best,but havent any edge support, so those who want to use internet
using this phone those become disappoint. in this condition they can chose k550i or w810i,
there is a problem with the new kind of keypad of k 550i, in this section w810i is better(for those who want to sms or brous by the set.)
in a word....
k750i---> is best for photography
k550i---> is best for its features(contain all required function you needed in minimum cost)
w810i---> is best for sms mob. chat. Walkman
by the way i am confused about the keypad of k550i because i dont have use yet. is it becomes damages if i use it roughly please
ans this question..
and i request gsmarena to compare the camera
of k550i and k750i
please please please
IMO, the K550 is a better device overall than the K750. While the K750 is slightly better in capturing photos in less-than-perfect conditions, the K550 has a better form factor, better design (save for the keypad), better battery life (I have to charge mine once every five days, while my K750 needed a charge every three days) and less weight.
If you loved the K750 because of its features, you'll love the K550 as well because it packs the same punch in a much sexier frame. Although the keypad takes some getting used to (I had a bit of trouble at the start with my 200 a day SMS habit), it performs well and the phone itself is very sturdy (going strong and scratchless after eight drops).
Kudos to SE for a great and budget-friendly phone.
the numeric keys sometimes stick and unresponsive for a fraction of a second. hey,is it possible to turn off the shutter(camera) sound? and is there a way to fast forward/rewind a video clip? thanks in advance for your replies.
hmmm... with regards to GSM Arena's review on this phone, they stated that it has a shorter focal length(3.8mm) compared to the K750 (4.8mm) which then makes the k550 have a smaller sensor so it does not produce pic qualities as good as the k750's... but read this:
"A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length." -from Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia
I got quite confused with the two statements because they contradict one another... could someone please explain to me about the focal length in Optics and Imaging please? thanks... here's my e-mail:
Oh, and here's the link to my reference:
I recently bought this phone. I had some doughts regarding all its comments. But it is certainly the budget phone, which has everything you could ask for. I did read about someone saying that the phone is not as sturdy as the K750i. Yes, it does feel filmsy. But I think it is due to the fact that both were made of different materials(which makes the k550i much lighter than k750i). And please stop comparing with the nokia N-series. They are a different catogory of phones(k810, 790 and the upcoming k850 would be better comparisson).Does anyone know where to get quality games for free? And Can someone please tell me how to get the best photographs through your k550i?
i have also heard the that the phone gets heated up while talking.. i have a high impulse on this phone but thats the only thing which is stopping me to go for this ... is it really true ????
if then is it with all the sets or with some ??? if any of the user can tell the truth?
naveen have u got any other update on this ???
I bought this SE K550i on 15th september and its costs 8600/-.
I observed the following after using this phone (comparison with k550/k750):
1). pictures in day light - 8 / 8.5
2). pictures in dark - 4.5 / 7
3). features and performance - 9 / 8
4). sound - 8 / 8
5). key pad is hard but ease to use after
6). games - only 1 puzzle slider.
7). Memory - 128 card + 73 internal.
8). overall it is slightly better than K750i
9). but k750i had a better camera.
can Any body me a gud game and steps to downlaod thro data cable.
dear all.. read about se 550i so much and i am tempted to buy it... but two last doubts...
#1)i am an avid ebook reader and a SMSing freak... would anyone gide me about which software/application will work good in 550i to read ebooks(550i being a java phone..)? if libris ebook reader works on it does it allow us to change the font COLOR of text and the background color? if not then whichpplication will allow me so? this ebook reading habit of mine is the only thing thats holding me back frm buying this phone....
#2)can we extend the memory to 2 gb without hampering the phone's speed and performance?
i would really really appreciate if someone gives an experienced and genuine advice... looking forward toa quick reply... thanks bye... cheers!
can anyone tell me does the k550 have good sound quality for music, pleeeaaase email me.
THANKS and byeeee
Can any of you please tell whether its true that the cell gets heated up in the above half after talking for more than 10 mins.
I have got many such responses from various places and in a ziffy whether to go for it or not.
Request all those who are using to give more info on the subject. Already posted a comment for the same on 2007-09-19 10:12.
guys..please dont mislead people....i agree that some people might face some problems but you should not jump and make generalizations.thats my humble request.i talk for 30-40 minutes without any heat up.camera gives excellent results on PC in day light conditions.Sound quality can be improved by using original walkman series headset.FM is stunningly clear. Screen is also not as bad as you guys are describing.(though its my personal opinion).I feel at 8.3k you cant get abetter phone (slim rich look, cybershot brand, EDGE etc.)
Hei u better learn to use the camera well !!!!
Why saying such lies ???? I agreee that k550i camera is bad during low light conditions ....
But in daylight the photo clarity is stunning !!!
See it for urself
Please do give a prompt reply ......
And mind u this is a forum ... so people believe what u say !!!!
Don't mislead them ...... :-(
The display is the major screwup in k550i and w610i, its hs TFD not TFT. the icon edges look really awaful!.. tft is much crisper than TFD.
i have never used this kind of low quality cell phone.its camera is very bad.it is known to all that the camera of sony ericsson mobile set are generally good.if any1 use this set then i am sure that his impression will be hurt in a great sense and all his money will be wasted.iam very disappointed after using this set.its sound quality is also very bad.i will suggest not to buy this set.
Thanks a lot Khaled for hearing me.
Wts your openion about K750i (I mean if we compare it with K550i)
I have got to know about a drawback of this phone i.e. the hearing portion (top part of the phone) gets heated up while talking for more than 15 mins.
I first heard it on a mobile shop but ddnt give much weightage thinking of dealer inerest.
Then got to know same from the service center of SE and now one of my friend who has been using it for more than 2 months also said the same thing.
Can anyone throw some light on the same and tell the reality ?
