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. Macro function is good! But as always light is of essence. The phone is also quick. I got a 1Gb card and it does not slow the phone down. I do not know if SE has made any improvements on the radio but i think that 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
The coolest thing in k550i is the Track ID that you can automatically search for title, artist and album names about a song you hear playing through a loudspeaker or playing on the radio.

I took it to the service centre and they said the cam should be replaced and probably they'll have to send it to the soney ericcson head office. If they cannot replace the cam, they will replace the fone

Im using this phone 1.7 years ago.. Until now i've not encountered any problem with my phone my friends got a latest nokia phone trying to defeat my SE K550i@W610i (modded) but they frustrated. I really love this phone for those people who want to buy this phone don't Mystify your self on buying it... This is the best i ever seen in the market.. For those people who are trying to destroy the image of this phone i would say S****!!
I have one k550i and its the BEST phone in the world. It has a good camera, good music player, good display etc. And of course, practically no faults! At its price range, its the best phone on the market. Its works like a well greased machine, its lightning fast, can it last for 15 years or longer ? I wonder....
I love SE Phones, But the newer models now quite give me a headache,, last july last year,, i bhought my girlfriend a K550i, for back up phone,, because it is fast solid interface according to users,, yes,, it is fast, compared to some phones.. but problems exist since day2 it restarts it self sometimes,, & turns off without a reason,, worst last Jan24 the activity menu internet key, right navy key & right menu key mulfunction,, wich is annoying because you cnnot acces some of the phones feature,, it havent been drop or used heavily because it is just a back up phone,, i brought it back to SE shop & found out that it is a factory defect, & i need to wait for 3months for the part to get it fixed,,
im not saying that SE phones are the worst in the world,, in fact their one of the most trusted names in industry, but these days,, newer models tend to have a problem, (software, board etc)
sony,, pls make youre phone more durable,, as durable as the passed days,, also,, pls make the parts availability more available,, we love SE phones,,
i'm using this phone since 18 months. This is a very very bad phone I've ever used. The camera is very bad. Zoom is not there. the camera was good for first three or four months, but after that it's getting worse. The lead of the camera is getting damaged, so the photo at night(with the flash turned on) is captured as a white-snap. The sound-quality is one of the worst I've ever heard. I can't hear the song in bus, train or a quite busy road. The mobile-case is also of bad quality, the color doesn't last longer and the fone looks like a 10yr old fone. This is a very small psg to curse the handset...So, never try this set...
It is 1 of the best design k series fones! Iv had my k550i almost a yr now an i never had a prob wit it its a everyday fone an it does everything. I wud recomend it 2 any1! But im goin 2 upgrade 2 the newer k850i cus of the newer software an features!
