this phone is only stylish with the lense cover, seriously, all 2mp pictures are pretty much the same.. its the screen that matters.. like motorola and samsung. user friendly wise, All SE phones really are... waiting for sony to engineer light effect options like SEs500i on more phones and photo phonebook menu... with loud ringtones of course..
that is good, i also love white model but i have just sen in photos on internet sites.
i contacted with sonyericsson pakistan site and they told that white model is not available in my country pakistan, only balck model is available, iw as bit disappointed
but now i will call my cousin who is in uk, he will send me white model.
thanks for recommending
Such A Shame Its Not Cheaper... would they not do better marketing it at around £80 instead of £100? Or is the K530 going to be the cheaper version?... This Phone is definately worth that price tag but with other S.E's like the W800 and the V630 costing around £80 then surely they'd match those price tags.
i just bought my k550i last friday 13th july, 2 days after that, when i want to make a call, there is no dialtone, but when i press speaker phone and use the headset i can hear it. then after few minutes there's a warning says : serious error, donot charge your phone and turn it off, go to SE retailer. so then after that i went to the shop where i bought the phone, and until now my phone is not fixed, i want to change with new one but the have lots of reason not to...it's very annoying..i juz bought the phone, after that serious error then no change for new one...i'm pissed off.
Whoa, really nice phone, but a alittle too expensive. $230 is not a friendly price
someone below asked about the white color of the k550i. well, i have the white model and is just great looking, much better then the black one (my opinion). anyway, the opinion is subjective so perhaps someone else would like much more the black one.
only one big issue: i am very annoyed of the blue led color from the keypad, the phone looks so stylish with his keyboard but when i press a keypad it turns blue and all the magic dissapear. DOES ANYONE KNOWS HOW CAN I CHANGE THIS LIGHT INTO A WHITE ONE? maybe someone has a tutorial cause i searched the whole web and i found nothing. thanks
you can only use zoom on this phone when your on "landscape mode" when viewing your pictures.
so far im getting good reviews for this phone.btw,this is not one of those high end phones.you can tell by the number.
peace out :)
Amazing, really! I just wanted something good for pictures and cheap at the same time, i got more! Not only is it good for taking pictures but also for playing mp3, videos etc. The user interface couldn't get any better. The cam extra features are great. People are saying the pictures are not so great compared to this and that. But i took some great pics during the day with max quality/res on. and they ARE great, trust me! The light(not flash light) helps at night, but it doesn't do miracles! the simple music software player is enough for what i need to listen to them. Plus it runs great games, has multi-threading and stuff. it gets a 10 out of 10 from me!
I want to buy this phone, i have seen photos of K550 in GSMArena website and whoite color looks cool as compared to black, but i have not seen white color phone in real. In real i have seen black color, and it also looks very attractive.
i have doubt that whether white color will also look attractibve in real, there was no white color avaiable in amrket but shopkeepr sais that he can arrange one white color phone on some advance payment.
i just want to confirm that if anyone have seen or used both color phones then which one i better color scheme.
pls guide me
I'm using this fone for connecting to the internet with my laptop. The pc suite that comes with the package was very helpful and friendly in setting up a connection. I've got a 115 kbps data rate, though having a 3g fone is still way better for downloads coz it offers 384kbps , just like broadbands. Just make sure u got the ryt internet settings from your network provider.
i think it is the great phone i ever had after my W810i were stolen,
in my country, Indonesia, the price is so reasonable for this nice little phone, it's about Rp 1,775,000.00, in dollars $197.22,
Do you think that this phone in white colour will have a "dirty" aspect with the daily use or something like that? I don't want to buy a white phone that beacame yellow...
its nothing wrong wit the phone..the reason is it requires u to set up an account for ur phone..so it is smthing to do wit the phone line..for hotlink users,just press *100#,press 6,press 2 and again press 2.select ur phone model and a setup account will be send to you..hope this wil help u...
"i can't seem to go online with my phone. is it the phone's problem or is it my line's problem? i'm from malaysia, using hotlink prepaid."
Have u recieved the proper settings (Internet profile/MMS)from ur operator? It should ask for the settings when u turn it on first time and ask if u wanna download it. If u havnt u wont be able to go online or use f.x. TrackID , which is a really cool application :/

Finally got my K550i last week, and I'm pretty pleased with the performance. Here are my views so far:
Price (India) - Rs.9500
Pros - Good autofocus camera. You get good results even indoors at night in proper lighting. Daytime outdoors are simply excellent. Good flash. Macro results are awsome. Music player is also gud. Stylish and very handy. Kids enjoy the facewarp application. Reception as good as can be.
Cons - Creaky and light backcover (problem is solved by putting a folded peice of paper inside). Battery life is ok. Gets drained very fast if you listen to music thru speaker.
Overall - Excellent and recommended.
Photo quality isnt 2 bad bcoz of its cybershot blood-line.
I saw few sample images of this phone n to me its more then whats u expect from 2.0 MP's.
here is the link of sample K550 images
