mp3 is cool and better than 6230
Pn the one hand it's a marvellous mobile onthe other hand it's terrible, because of its small stand-by and talk time. The 360/7h is not true!!! It's not more than 72/4h!!!

Got k700i last week. Camera refresh rate is awful, there's a delay between pressing the button and the phone taking the pic. A minor drawback on an otherwise great phone. My Samsung E700 had a way better refresh rate, but that died on me. Videos are watchable, provided there's not too much movement. Otherwise all you see is blurry pixels. Might be inherent to 3GP, not sure. Screen is excellent, themes are actually good, better than my old T300. Menu is straight forward, much better than Nokia in my opinion. Sound quality in calls is fine, if a little quiet. Keypad, though initially a worry, is very tactile & easy to use. The rubber keys help a lot. But the bit of rubber at the bottom of the phone with the network provider's logo on is unsightly & ruins the phones front.
wat is better? a VGA 640x480 pixel camera or a CIF 352x288 pixel camera?
anyone who knows it would be great if they could let me know. thankyou
Thank you for your reply, Farhat H. I have one curious question. Does it have that trnasfer limit per file? I know the gx32 limit the file to 400kb per file. That really pissed me off because, other than compressing, I think even an mp3 song would be bigger than that and the gx32 costs a fortune. I also hear that many are having difficulting setting a mp3 ringtone, only one or two people is successful. Honestly I may not need an mp3 ringtone, but if I'm buying a phone right now while most have it, I think the one I buy should have it too. Just saw a Nokia 6230 display phone on special today for $388 US. Also a used p910 for $671US, but have to check on condition. Anyhow, I think I should wait it out before buying something I will regret later. The s700 would be the ultimate, but I could get a old second hand car for that price.
cheers Torben W, that'll come in handy. and for all you girls who can't decide, get a k700i, you wont be disappointed.
Im really UNSURE to go for 6230 or K700...:(((( help me!! or should I wait for K730?? lol!!!
+MMC card(cheaper flash), -lousy cam, -lousy vid, +/-java midp?, -no 3d jave, +good battery, +/- std 65k tft, -no symbian app(6600), +firmware easy to upgrade, +many games& 3gpp on net, + store many full 3gpp movies,- small screen, +/- too plastictily but many cover changes, -games on net is old, + large contacts
+65k tft(higher density),+good cam,+ave vid, -low mem ((41k mb = 6~7mp3/1~2full mov/3 100mb java/the rest for contacts/theme/pic ===>is not enough)), -hard to find app on net, -hard to upgrade if phone is from china (K700c), + equalizer, + java 3d ,- bad battery,+/- more matured looks but lacks changebility, + easyier to find latest java games(eg: might&magic),- only 500 items contacts,
6230 and k700 similarity:
small phone , radio, no symbian app, has mp3, dont care bout gprs/edge,
Dream phone(will it be K730... :DDD )
: Looks like K700, has symbian ability(6600),mp3 (k700),vid cam without time limit (k700) ,flash mem (6230), good cam (K700) ,has java3d (k700) , good GUI (both), can .3gpp (both), has good internet support groups (k700), Good bluetooth connetivity (K700),
Ok, ConfusedBuyer. Both K700 and E398 has features like Bluetooth, 65K TFT colours, VGA camera tht can record videos, MP3 player and other basics. But there additional features on the E398.
E398 has 5MB internal memory BUT you can expand it using TransFlash SD card (a 64MB card INCLUDED!!!), the screen size is bigger AND has 3D surround speakers on both sides with cool illuminating LEDs.
If youre looking for a complete multimedia phone AND cheaper between K700, the E398 is best.
If youre on the more stylish, business side, the K700i wins. (But a few hundred $$ more)
Hope this helps your decision.
(any other information you want to know, dont hesitate to contact moi!)
Very weak battery.This is terrible.The battery is the biggest mistake of this model.A bigger one???
At first i really wanted a sharp phone due to its 262k screen. But knowing that the phones don't offer mp3 ringtones and bluetooth, I hesitated. (Gx32 is too much) Now I'm deciding upon E398 and k700i, since both are well equipped with those features. Please help me decide. Can the E398 record or play video? I know the K700i can but its memory seems smaller and internal only. My old SE t310 is dying on me and it's about time that I have to replace it. Basically my requirements are:
1) at least 65000 color screen(altough quite tempted by 262k)
4) no unreliable phones such as Korean phones and Nokia
5) would prefer flipphone or slider, although not necessarily
Please help me out, thanks.
