thanks. i was thought nobody appreciate that "too much technical explanation" links.
> wat r the advantages an dis advantages?
it depends on the person. for me it almost advantages me in any aspect. the dis are no QVGA, no 16M color, no HSDPA and such. but that's can be achieved by another phone. I bought K550 for a reason that no other phone can afford to do. which is Java smartphone!
> how much memory can it really store up 2?
some sources says 1gb, some 2gb, some 4gb. I don't know.
> wats the internal memory?
it's one of the main advantages of K550i. Its size 72mb, which also mean bigger RAM to start up Java applications. that also means REAL multitasking (run over 2-7 Java app at same time)
> is it stury?
Yes to me.
> doees it respond fast?
All SE phones (except the symbian based one) are Yes they're fast. I even installed over 100 application and it still run fast. My largest java app takes 6mb memory.
> hw clean is the cam?clearer than w580 and w810?
picture result is somewhat depend on YOU. Clean images is produced by low ISO. And how to get low ISO?
1 - go to places with bright ambience (such as sunlight)
2 - in indoor or night ambience utilize lamp or built-in LED, or xenon flash (if any) and activate night mode shot.
3 - dont move to much while taking pix, especially in night mode. so hold your breath and press shutter quick!
4 - when a camera phone can NOT be mounted on tripod, NEVER expect a real digicam result.
5 - digital zoom is the same as no zoom. never expect to zoom with it. it's the same as original pix being zoomed at PC.
6 - if u think points above are bothersome. then dont get any camera at all including digicam. since they're all the same..
This one is technical and depend on the cam. NOT on you:
7 - technically K550 only have smaller focus that w810i or old k750i (but same image processor). so image will look blurrier.
8 - color result are somewhat different with the original image. silver may looks yellowish.
sorry for too long post
thanks again rider 48.i'm thinkin of gettin this phone soon.wat r the advantages an dis advantages?how much memory can it really store up 2?wats the internal memory?is it stury?doees it respond fast?hw clean is the cam?clearer than w580 and w810?
Reality of GPRS vs EDGE vs UMTS
hope this much information feed your need of knowledge about network services.
don't be a victim of marketing!
and yes our k550i is marketed as cybershot... most of us bought it for camera though (k750i camera processor is planted inside, but with a smaller lens).
.. but its real capability is deep hidden inside...
since it's a real small devil smartphone!
for references about HSCSD go here:
for references about EDGE go here:
is Wifi vs 3G vs 3.5G vs EDGE? it's answered here:
you will find out which one is good for u
in conclusion EDGE is 3G in technology, but 2.75G in marketing. confusing huh? blame the GSM group!
HSCSD is a GPRS maximizer, which will help current GPRS network to access the web @ 57.6Kbps even in low coverage condition.
EDGE (2.75G) is a network which download @ 234Kbps maximum speed, while UMTS (3G) is @ 384Kbps maximum speed.
the difference between EDGE and UMTS is that EDGE still use GSM network so it can't do video call. Therefore EDGE given 2.75G title eventhough EDGE passed 3G classification, so that UMTS can be marketed as 3G.
UMTS got its own band at 850Mhz, 1900Mhz and 2100Mhz
HSDPA (3.5G) or WCDMA is an UMTS (3G) replacement and backward compatible with UMTS. but data transfer speed risen up to 3.6Mbps and in some cases capable to 14Mbps
just like UMTS, HSDPA also has its own band at 850Mhz, 1900Mhz and 2100Mhz
WiFi or WLAN or IEEE802.11 is the king of network speed but low at coverage.
hey plz can anyone tell me wats HSCSD and EDGE..............plz tell me............
K550 always better.
I recomended you to by a PDA(with OS. Windows) rather than symbian's phone.
It's the best way.
K550 OS. JAVA
E50 OS. Symbian
This is different thing...guyz.
I need you knows about all java's phones more simply, more stable (i means no virus, no hang, no rebotting again and again).
More quick and fast without serious trobles in firmware.(especially SE Phone).
USD 20 for MPS 70.
USD 7.8 for MMC 60.
In Indonesia, right now.
thanks rider 48.but i'm talkin about the phone in volume.is there anyway u can make it louder without damaging the speakers?oh an which 1s better?sony ericsson k550 or nokia e50?
I think myk550 is loadest one.
Cause i'm using MMC 60 (stereo AV cable series for audio).
My k550 can connected to my BIG stereo sound system.
(i means my k550 to be a juke box).
Now I need you knows about k550 killing Ipod in audio. I'm not kidding.... guyz.
You can get a good quality of sound with MPS 70 (stereo box speaker series).
Sorry....I don't interested to flashing a cyber-shot to be a walkman.
True though it is, SE Phones are just the Best there is.
SE 4 Lyf!
Bro i agree K550i is better
SE 4 Lyf!
I think led lamp more stable in camera phone(low battery consumption).
But xenon always win in the dark (may be all people know about that)and in xenon lamp(very hungry battery).
This is a choice bro....
And you can get taking more good pictures with mercury lamp.
Hey man.....this is on the diamond collections of sony...This is One good pone i ve never seen in recent past...awesome awesome awesome...Great great great...superb superb superb....100 outta 100.....Camera is really mind blowing...better than any digicam of te kind......looks kool ,battery is really one gift to mankind...lasts for long really long long long...............I fully recommend this phone to all....Good luck
plz tell me how do u change this in2 a walkman phone an how do u make it louder?thanks alot.
