i brought this phone a month ago, but i was not satisfied by the picture quality, especially on dark place, because this phone is having a small lense ayt?..check the lense of the K550 and compare to w800, w700, or k750i..those phone are having 4.3 to 4.8mm lense compare to k550...but k550 is good for outdoor picture quality..the drawback of this phone is picture qaulity will be poor in dark places...but the battery life is good and the design is cool...i rate this phone 60%
does anybody tryed the update service for k550i? If so the resultes?
so far, i have no problem with the phone. everything is perfect. highly reccommended
i juz bou this K550i, everything is fine... except that when u press the button, the battery cover behind is giving this creaking sound. As if the cover is slightly biger. Makes the phone look so cheap n it is so irritating. Juz like to know is anybody facing same problem...?
Camera phones being intimate and personal, all camera phones need to have seperate password blocks for messages, phonebooks,pictures, videos to prevent un-authorized viewing.
SAMSUNG INDEED HAVE DONE THEIR HOMEWORK WHEN ADDING FEATURES TO THEIR PHONES
Vibrate & Then Ring one of the most important features is missing in most of Sony Ericsson Phones.
Organizer is a bit clumpsy, doesnt have Meeting, Birthday,To Do, Call etc features seperately.not user friendly.
Repeated message alert tone is not possible. One can miss important messages if you are not nearby your phone. you need to open your phone to check for messages again & again.
Overall good camera,fm,music cum Phone rather than vice versa
TO i d iotic
If your phone turns it self off, whipe the battery contacts on the phone n battery with some metho, or take it to a repair shop. It fixes it up no worries, but keep it away from the battery indicator (next to copper on Battery) cause if that turns from white to red, then your phone will be liq damaged.
Bella, if you want to store music, get a Walkman phone. The Cyber shot phones are made for that, shots. SE seperate these functions beautifully unlike Nokia which jam everything into one little box. If you want great quailty photos get a cyber shot. I sold my Digital Camera when I got my K800i. Well worth it.
'Its what computers have become'? There is a reason y computers are still BIG and y so many nokia's get return for software issues.
Does this phone has "flight mode"? (that enables just work as a camera and a music player)
BTW is this a good phone to use as a music player(i know theres a walkman series,) but what are the differents in this and say a W800 ?
should be good. but some of you really need to learn to spell write etc reading these comments sometimes is impossible!
I've got this for a month and my comment
pros: solid even i dropped several times. very loud mp3/ringer which i like the most.key pad u just have to get used to it and got no prob sending sms. picture quality is acceptable. battery life thebest.
cons: it turns off by itself a couple of times.design is average.
overall: I would keep it for a while until a new SE comes along..cheers
p.s i dnt want to shift over to nokia for this silly reason coz i like se in every other aspect
hi guys i am planning to upgrade my k750 , but there is only one little thing that is bothering me .... can you lock this fone with a passcode so that no one else can have access to the messages and files on it , i simply adore the k750 and this is the obly reason i cant keep it any more ....
@ Bella ::
Hi eee ....
well k550i comes with in built phone memory of 74mb and m2 card memory 64 mb . So total usable memory around 135 mb. Good enough 2 hold around 20 songs ....
Well as 4 sound outside volume is same as walkman series phones but slighly less than 750i which has a very high ring volume.
And camera mathces 750i in daytime... but it has no night mode like 750 , so pics are bad at night ... But in daytime excellent pics ....
check out my gallery here .... all 550i photos .....
Mind u 550i is much faster phone in all its features.. music player sounds great and matches the walkman clarity if u use walkman headsets as I am doing....
Battery life say i get around 3 days minimum ....
ask 4 more .... always welcome .....
i am thinking of getting this phone but have mixed opinions on it ! but what i do need to find out,to further my research on the phone is how much memory does it have? how many songs would it hold? is it good quilty and worth the money? and fineally do you think i should get it, if yes ... WHY and if no....WHY ?? x cheers x
1.what you will say abt betery timing
2.is the sound is like k510 or lower
Basically I think that SE w610 is also v good and am also waiting for w660 to be released..It has v well designed keypad and 3g too....initially I thought that keypad for k550i,w660 and k810 will not be comfortable however I went and checked and have found that they are abs fine....and infect as times goes you will like the keypad more.well as a default all SE are coming with v good cameras and you can choose any..even SE 810 is a superb phone and if you buy you would love it...just go thru this forum for each SE phone and you will have some good inputs...inputs from Kelvin are also v useful.
