:::::@ ROHIT :::::
I cant understand why u r asking this question??? The real clarity and quality of a mobile camera can be seen only if u view the pictures after viewing them on a computer scree n.
If u get good pics, then they will look great on a mobile screen as well !!!!!
Only nokia's 6300 which has 16 million colors in its display cheats us !!!! The pictures look great on mobile, but ugly on computer screen !!!!!!!
So please understand that THE PHOTO QUALITY IS ACTUALLY SEEN ONLY ON A COMPUTER SCEEEN AND NOT A MOBILE DISPLAY , WHICH IS TOO SMALL TO JUDGE !!!!!!!!
ask if u hav any other doubts .....
hii kelvin and oders,
thxx for ur useful comments and pics...yea d pic looks gr888 here...but wat makes me confused is dat most of d people are just talking about d pics after transferring dem 2 d computer.....i want gud camera performance on d cel as well......dats wat i want 2 asked...just last ques. plzzz....is d pic clearity not soo gud on camera(not after transfering dem 2 d pc).....plzz tel me sooonnnn.....thxx
IMHO, K550i is a better buy. Its much faster than K750i. Audio is better. Screen is better. Camera is Excellent in daytime. It does have a night mode (Twilight) as Kelvin has rightly pointed out.
Good luck !!!
@Kelvin..great pics! you're very convincing:) But I think you might be better with cameras than the average person. Pls give us some tips for great pictures, thx

I have been using a k550i for 4 months and please check out these pics taken by me with my 550i camera ....
Also please check out this pic taken only with the help of 550i's led light in macro mode in total darkness @ midnight time .....
Now judge 4 urself ........
P.S. All pictures are real pics and not fakes..... just check the EXIF info 2 confirm
waiting 4 a prompt reply ......
There is an option "TWILIGHT LANDSCAPE" and "TWILIGHT PORTRAIT" which u will find in scenes from the camera menu.
To use the shortcut key, just open the camera and press "7". Then u will get this.....
These two modes can b used as night modes as the exposure is long here ..... which is what a night mode does... so that more light can enter the camera sensor.
Ok hope u understood ......
P.S. Unless u use ur led lights , the night mode pics are pretty average with k550i. K750i does much better but gives yellow tinted photos if u use led lights.....
wer i could find free and SAFE themes for my k550i?..zedge.net dont have themes for k550i...pls help..tnx!

Anyone has any idea abt the price of microM2 memory sticks in India, 512MB or 1 GB?
Mobile store has K550i for ~8700 rupees with 128 mb, Sony stores have it for 9200 with 512 Mb. Which is the better deal/
wat should i say?
dis is d first time dat i m soo confused about a phone and til now i m not able 2 decide whether i should buy k550i or not??????how can reviews varyy sooo much???somebody says dat dis is an excellent phone ------ and someone says dat its camera is even bad den a VGA camera......how is it possible?????really i m soo confused?????can anyone tel me plzzz correctly dat is dis phone better dan k750i in terms of camera and sound quality plzzzz?????????????????
One quick question, what is the biggest size of memory card that this phone can handle?
Im looking for a memory card for my k550...i know i need an M2 but thats really all i know...i found one on Amazon.com...a 2 GB Micro M2 Memory Card made by Sandisk...will this work? Also, will a 2GB card slow down my phone?
w700i is a walkman oriented phone and so it doesn't have autofocus feature, where as k550i has auto focus. So k550i pics are good when compared 2 w700i.
Can i use bluetooth headset to listen to music/fm.mp3. I guess its used only for call and answering calls. Nokia supports it.
How can u say such comments about this phone which for me is much better than k750i.
Please b careful when posting comments......
b honest with them .....
The SPEED of k550i is far far better than 750i which performs at snail's pace when compared to k550i. Also the pics taken under proper lightning conditions match the clarity of 750i. Please check these pics
Also mind u if u take photos using the 750i flash light there is a yellow tint in the photos where as the 550i pics are more natural in color .....
Also the music player and video player is much better than 750i , the only miss is the MEGA BASS feature which k550i does'nt have. But if u use a walkman headset then the sound is pretty much equal 2 the walkman clarity.
Then the most important and cool feature is the proccessing speed of this phone.....
It performs well and supports upto 2GB micro cards. But 750i works very very SLOWELY if u use 2GB cards ......
So please b careful in ur comments....
Oh, one more thing, i have the white version, and its nothing like the white in the picture. its more of a pearl-ish colour, not the arctic white they have pictured. The pictures look nicer :(
I bought this phone in March/07 and have not had any major problems with it at all. The camera works great in the daytime, and its not bad in the night, as long as the object is not too far away. The same goes for video mode, with one exception - when switching to video, it takes about 5-7 seconds to start recording, which may make you miss what you wanted to record. Other than that, the lens cover is great, its flush mounted and acts as an active switch to turn on the camera. The only problem i have with the phone is the keypad: the number keys are chrome-plated plastic. After the first month of texting, the chrome was already peeling off (i text quite a bit, about 1500 a month). As of right now, my 1,3,5,6,8 and # keys are worn out, as well as the select key within the directional pad. I find the menu straight forward, and the sound is as good as can be from a cell phone speaker. All in all, a great phone, no regrets at all.
