compared to k510 the k550 has:
-smaller form factor
-higher resolution display
if all those things don't matter to you, then thats ok, but don't make it look like they have an identical feature set
K510 was aunexpected hit,basically low cost but this k550 is double price with only 1.3MP to 2.0Mp cam,rest is facelift ad esp the shine n body is worst as scratshes appear.cyber-shot is only for sale gimmic nothing extra ordnary like walkman logo nothing extra normal player like Real or Medis ply.the flat designs r trademark of SE,and the origin or made n never mentioned,thats bcz Made n Cina SURE
Hey bob... haven't tried yet the headphone itself or even using bluetooth, but i do believe it would be the same as thru the speaker. btw, it does have equalizer which i don't find it useful coz tried to level high for the bass but only minimal effect. if you're lookin for a budgt hpone with superb quality pix but poor video this is the ONE.
If ur looking for a phone that has everything except for 3G then this is the one...next question pls..
To Boyz...have you yet tried out the A2DP profile with stereo sound via bluetooth? Does the bass sound adequate with the supplied stereo headphones? The reason I ask is coz reviews say the picture quality in w610 is not as good as the k550. Just wondering if I can drop the w610 from my list and do without the megabass.
Is it right that this phone doesn't have a joystick, but a D-Pad?
If that's the case, then we should say bye to the joystick issues that previous SE phones have. :D
Im back! I got this for a couple of weeks for now.. now here's my further comment..
pros : Speaker was very loud than what i expected, ID caller display was superb, the joystick? I would'nt call it a joystick coz its more like navigational pad which is solid-like, screen still clear to see under direct sunligh, cost? affordable approx HKD2180 (USD320),casing solid enough,picture quality? SUPERB!,phone flash? fantastic.
cons: Video camera SUCKS! if you're into SMS/texting forget about it coz its kinda difficult to do it in no# pads,design? so-so,battery life? okay,playing music kinda so-so coz too much hissing sounds.Anyone wanna ask more details?...lemme know..
i havent tried it yet, but for me hmmm yeah youre right the joystick sucks!!!
tried it in k608i, w810i same probs after a month of using it..
but wer not talkin bout the joystick here'
the camera, resolution and etc...
sounds cool, i dunno how cool is the camera..
TFD as i knew is much better than TFT why???, coz its superb picture even it stuck by sunlight its still crystal clear and low usage of battery life not like the TFT the consumption of battery life consume much faster
this phone seems good!
should be cheap i think...
cuz its a budget phone!
but then i was hoping that SE will
come out with another Xenon flash phone
if there was xenon in this... i'll buy it!
jz want to ask anyone who bought this fone f the joystick becomes a trouble after a few days of usage?
well i bought a k300 and my joystick broke jz after 3 days of using it, same with other SE fones i bought it.
i think the problem with the joystick should be brought attention to by the SE engineers! good day to all!!
wats the big deal with cybershot?, its the same feature in sony digicams that most users barely like or use, i cant see why someone would buy a phone because of cybershot
oh... how poor sony ericsson ,,,all mobile companies show there best pretty mobiles in 3gsm ,,but sony ericsson show a very poor mobiles!
sony ericsson still dont have a screen with 16 million colour,,still no 3 mega pixel cam .. no tv...etc
Not using joystick as SE phones lovers no need to worry of its condition while playin games or sms a lot .. Meanwhile,14mm thickness ... great job SE .. :-)
perfect replacement of k750i.by reading review i found.
1)no megabass 2)ancient Qcif video 3)max limit of memmory card upto 1GB 4)no outlet for memmory card externally like k750i you have to open the battery cover for inserting memmory card 5)no usb cable provided in package 6)why is fast port kept in left side
,it touches in hand could get dirty.
but all around it is a nice feature rich phone in a compact size.hope its price equal
to k750i or some more
