Sound quality is almost comparable though SE is slightly on the better side but diff is not too much and can be ignored. Camera is better with SE and it has flash too. However remember that 6300 has 16m color and a vibrant screen which is really impressive. Na Nokia has great UI....
suc ks this phone does not support moto ht 820 blueteeth headset!!!!! i tried every possible way to connect but no!!!!
yes kel have seen it a while ago... i would be a pleasure to see SE being always the "king of all camera phones"

must comment on this
First of all this phone has 74 Mb internal memory and has also not li-ion battery but has li-polymer battery at 950 mAH :D
I was in the market for a new cell phone for about a month and wanted to make sure i bought the right cell phone for me. I was choosing between the N76, 6290, z610, u600 and the k550. To be honest, the K550 was at the bottom of my list. It looked like a plane jane phone, i didn't like the bar style and it wasn't as feature packed as the other phones. However, and that is a BIG however, i ended up taking a chance and going for the cheaper buy in the white k550. Best. Purchase. Ever. Not only is it small, sleek and good looking, the texting as much easier than i expected even tho the keys are small, the exterior doesn't at all feel cheap like the z610 and even tho it is a bar phone its very sexy and easy to use. The camera is great and on par if not better than my friends 810 and last but not least its a reliable Sony Ericsson and i'm very pleased to be back on the good guys team. All in all the k550 is an underrated bar phone that is well worth the cheap price tag. Awesome phone.
Thanks once again for your great feedback. It has really been helpful.
i hv used K550i ,battery is very poor,but camera is good.i want the camera & sound comparison between K550i & nokia 6300,which is better?
That depends on what all features you are looking for? Please specify..
i wanna buy this phone but i want to ask and consider only 1 thing: how is the button?? because im affraid the button model like my old nokia 8890 which if i used it for years it will be rusty , very fragile and not shine again.
so you guys please give advice about the quality of the button,
many thanks, merci, ARIGATOU!
To joao ::
the lens of 810i has AF=4.8mm while k550i has AF=3.8mm only. Thats why 550i has been so thin in size only 14mm when compared 2 810i which is 21mm thick . So naturally the camera of 810 is supposed 2 be a bit better than 550i. But mind u the difference is only very marginal . Only those who are experts can diffentiate them . Also I think that AF works better in 810i and 550i is bad in night conditions as it does'nt have a night mode. But that is a firmware issue and I am sure next updated firmware will solve that issue.
Well check these pics taken with my k550i and c 4 urself the clarity of 550i....
Also mind that 810i is almost 2years old and slow when compared 2 550i, which is very quick.
So u decide ....
k550 or w810? i know w810 is a bit old but still very good. which camera is better?
Does anyone's phone come with a sleep mode clock? That's the little clock that apprears after the phone goes into standby it also lets you know if you have a missed call or message.
Hi pal , the headsets with W800,810,850,880i are all the same. And headsets of K-series ie; K550i,750i,790i,800i are all the same , but mind that THEY ARE OF AVERAGE QUALITY when compared with Walkman headsets.
So decide urself .......
Kelvin, Thank you so much for your wonderfull feedback. So headsets are the key. Believe that headsets supplied with w810i have been of v good quality (as mentioned in it's review too). What about w610. Any idea if quality of headsets same as w810i.
i was trying 2 buy ths fone is there any problems with this fone plz post me
hey sup. guyz i wanna buy k550 bt i dunno, should i buy dis one, or w810?.. i think u cant put a larger memory stick on k550. how much memory can it be put on the k550?
Hi vins ::
Well the mp3 player is similar to the walkman player version 1.0 included in all walkman series. Well as regards the sound clarity the supplied headsets are average in clarity.
But what I did was that I changed it to the walkman headsets and then the sound clarity was same as the w800i which i previously owned !!!!
Also note that the volume is a bit less than walkman phones and also there is no mega bass feature but with equaliser settings and walkman headsets u can easily get almost the same effect as with the mega bass ....
Remember that its all deponds on the headset ur using. Get a orginal headset hpm70(or75) 4 1200/- (4 branded ones ) and u can get very decent sound thru ur set !!!
Dont buy duplicate ones , u would get them for as low as 150/- to 600/-.
So remember HEADSET is the key ......
Can anyone please let me know how is MP3 player quality compare to w810i?
Just wanted 2 ask u all whether there is any difference b/w the two modes namely "FINE" and "NORMAL" given under the option "PICTURE QUALITY" given in K550i camera menu ???
All I know is that the file size varies in these 2 modes .....
Is there any difference in the picture's QUALITY ??????
pls help me guys .....
