to Putte - two reasons; 1. The joystick - sooner or later it will let you down. 2. SE will release a 5 Mpxl cyber-shot. Maybe at the end of this year, maybe next spring. When that phone comes (and please God, no joystick!!) I will buy that one and permanently retire my digital camera.
What was the main reason to by a K550i and not a K800i or later K810i?
to Putte - you are welcome =). I have not had the opportunity to take photos outside yet and even if I had, the weather is so bad where I live. If the sun comes out though... A photo is about 300-450 kB so you should be able to store quite many on the internal memory but I recommend that you buy a Memory Stick. The phone can handle up to 1 Gb.
Regarding the web - I used a W550i before and the K550i is much faster.
Many thanks !!! Nice makro pictures
IF you have a standard picture you are always welcome to send that one to, maybe you want to wait for daylight :-)
How many pictures do think you can save with the standard memory 64Mb?
What about to use it on the web, is it quite quick to down load and read for example news, wether, sport etc??
I have a T630 do you think I will feel the difference..:-)
to Putte - yes I saw that right after I posted my comment. I have sent a mail to you. How you find the pictures useful.
btw K550i plays MP3, MP4, M4A, 3GPP, AMR, MIDI, AAC, AAC+, EAAC+, iMelody, eMelody, WMA, WMV, WAV (no more than 16 kHz) and Real 8. Just so you know.
to putte - I have som makroshots that I could send you. Your address is?
To djejjar or anyone else.
User photo from K550i.
Please send a full resolution picture to my e-mail adress. Would really appreciate this then my decision to buy a nwe camera depends on how good it is.
To boyz - even with full volume it sounds weak. The loudspeaker is just not as good as in the Walkman-phones - with is not a surprise after all since it is not a Walkman-phone.
hey djejjar....if ur gonna listen to music via speaker, don't forget to press the right upper side button-- arrow pointed upwards which makes the volume high and vice versa to low..try it!!! you won't get dissapointed
hey..bob..Q1 : I never download MP4 coz I know the video recording itself sucks,btw don't bother to use it coz am using IPOD.Q2: nope, u can't! Q3:It does not play AAC files, I just can't figure out yet why. If I were you, for the cost of USD300 and without 3G, this is it comparing to nokia #6300 latest model which is kinda light in weight and 16Million colour...but no auto focus and no led lights. I choose this model K550i coz its real solid holding it, does not fell bulky in my jeans front and back, but most of all I luv the LOUD VOLUME with cool graphics. any other models you want K550i to be compared with..lemme know coz ive got friends with 10 different models in nokia and SE..
Would buy this phone, its good looking with some great features but without being too over stocked with fancy stuff. I wonder about the price though.
I got this phone yesterday and I am pleased to say that it is as good as I expected - even better. The camera is better than in the test that Gsmarena did. Makrofunction is very good! But as always light is of the essensce. The phone is also quick. I got a 1 Gb card and it does not slow the phone down in my opinion. I do not know if SE has made any improvements on the radio but I think thar the reception and sound is better than in my old phone (W550i). Last but not least, when you hold the phone in your hand you get a feeling of quality! I highly recommend K550i! (In all fairness, there is one thing thar I am a little bit disappointed with - if you listen to music via the loudspeaker then the sound is a bit low).
About the camera, The camera in the Beta version was not good it was said. What do you people that today have bought a K550i think about hte camera, what to compare with K750i? Better or worse?? Please let me know
To sheikh...it is improper to compare the K510 and the K550, they are worlds apart. The 510 is somewhat low end. You cant compare a phone that has 28mb internal memory and one that has 64 mb internal and room for expansion! the k550 supports a2dp profile (dont know if you understand what that means) but i have used it and its quite a feature. All i can say is no wires when listening to music.
The music players are worlds apart and not to mention autofocus.
@ Boyz....yet another question. The phone is able to capture videos at QCIF level (176*220), but again reviews say it can play downloaded MP4 videos of 320*240 resolution. Can you confirm that for me? The other thing is with the web browser. Can you browse in landscape mode? And the third and last Q...can it play AAC files? The w810 reviews say it can play AAC files but I have one and it cant! I like AAC files coz they much smaller than MP3 but you can still maintain quality at a bitrate of 128kbps.
