I think K700 is great phone with lot of features unlike other brand like Nokia. 7610 could be better but for price of almost 30% more than K700 in my country. I don't wish to buy such expensive models. If I want all features that 7610 offers in software I would buy a new PalmOne Zire 72. Let me see Blokia beat Palm software.
I have problem with my phone book the number dissapear but the name exist so I took it to teh service center and they upgraded the software so hopefully it wont happen again, its embarassing when I wanted to call someone but tehir name in my phone book but the number gone they think I am nuuts.
As for the battery after they upgraeded the software it last for 3 days ..they said the battery life will be longer after they have the new software installed, so for all of you who have problem with battery better take it to the Sony center and have it upgraded for free.
That christa's got a nerve putting up false information, If I ain't mistaken the 6230's total memory including its 32mb mmc card is 38MB and the K700 has a total of 42MB so that means the 6230 is useless at MP3's and yes I know you can upgrade cards but lets be honest who's gonna bother looking for a bigger reduced sized mmc card anyway?
The picture is better on the K700 FACT! just check out the review!
Ok the Nokia 7610 is better overall but its more expensive and I don't know what problems you are trying to say about the K700 but all I can say is that it works fine for me and the design is superior to that of the 6230 any fool can see that!
Get an Ipod if u need an mp3 player. Nokia users are just kinda childish to promote nokia products here.
I seriously do not know what is happening to your phone. I've been using the k700i for some 3 mths. I find it lag only when opening huge pictures, menu wise, it's quite okie.
Look around you, nokia are losing their customers day after day. Just for myself, most of my friends and realatives are changing from nokia to other brands.
Christa you can check photos made with K700 and photos made with 6230 on review. Things like phonebook is what users got used to. I think bad reviews of K700 are writting just Nokia users. Only bad thing about K700 is battery.
hi not sure what to buy outta this an 6230.really like this phone but so many ppl in reviews saying k700 has lots of problems an ppl shouldnt buy it. lots of unhappy buyers :(. ppl sayin 6230 is better
1website sez 73 ppl outta 259 sayin theyre unhappy about buying it. whats worryin is that they get much worse than these 1st 10
"TOO MANY BUGS!! 1. Hangs once in a while for no reason, even just charging overnight (got to remove battery to reboot)
2. Does not connect well with PDAs, especially Palm OS ones
3. Firmware upgrade to R2L001 (in Singapore) disables the ability to mute camera shutter
4. Many missing links in software functionality (e.g. cannot delete contacts from groups properly (fixed in R2L), cannot use SMS templates when replying to SMS, cannot edit contact positions in SIM, etc...)
5. Contact info disappearing (name remains but number disappears for some contacts)
6. Bluetooth connection is very flaky when sending (better when receiving), especially with non-phones like PDAs and computers with Bluetooh dongles
7. Phone balance is slightly top-heavy (this may be subjective for me) as I SMS a lot and feel the phone may be tipping over sometimes
8. But I really like what it promises. If only Sony Ericsson would get its act together and:
a) Fix these bugs and feature gaps
b) Not discriminate between Asian and European users regarding the inability to mute the camera shutter functions (try taking pictures during meetings or briefings and see the look you get if you take more than a few)"
"Got the phone for two months. Recently got this address book problem where the saved number for a contact just went blank. Wanted to reply, the reply has to be in the form of an email from which I have to set up an email acct to do so. The software that comes with the phone is hardly useful at all (i.e. cannot compose SMS messages on my laptop and send via IR. Cannot download pics from phone to laptop, failure to ID my phone and so on... I feel the software is highly buggy, but phone build is exceptional, better than Nokia's plasticky feel."
"The selling point of this phone is the design. It definitely wins the 7610 anytime. But the software sucks big time. It lags and the camara is lousy. What's the point of having all the fanciful functions to play MP3 when you can't even expand the memory? This is crazy. Anyway I dumped my T610 and K700i for the N7610."
"Poor organizer apps. Notes app offers only 10, YES, 10 notes. The calendar has no anniversary dates. I miss that a lot from my old Nokia. The camera does not stand up to marketing promises. Picture quality in low light is very poor. The light on the camera side is not flashlight. It must be manually turned on before taking picture in low light. (Could be a saver at Hekla after sunset.) But still poor quality of pictures."
"K700i is a good phone. But it can't win against its rival 6230. 1. The cam is worse than 6230's cam. 2. It has no expansion slot, so MP3 becomes useless. You have only memory for about seven to eight MP3s and only if you use THE WHOLE memory. 3. It has no Highspeed Circuit Switched Data (HSCSD) and other functions that the 6230 provides. Summary: The K700, indeed, has a better screen and some playful features like equalizer and themes. From the design I think the phone aims at teenage customers. If you're searching for a good phone, better take the 6230. It's better and cheaper!!!"
"This phone is truly sluggish. In terms of total overall usability, Nokia still comes up tops. Too bad Nokia still thinks it can get away with things like releasing new phones with 65k color when other people are moving onto 262k"
"This is not a good buy."
"My phone connot receive SMS after a R2L firmware upgrade. It always prompts: "Too many messages. Delete some from any folder." I've check all the folders and there are zero items. I sent back to the service center, and they told me the phone software is corrupted and they need to change the whole mainboard. Oh my God"
"I looked at M1's offer today and I was like, cool, I'm gonna get this phone, but when I tried my friend's K700i, I noticed the address book and personal info were nowhere near the N7650's features. I wonder what's with the lousy phonebook feature on SE. It's an ultimate letdown. For those getting a new phone, please make sure you check the phonebook feature before anything else. I am giving a pass on this phone."
"Since the Nokia 6230 has expandable memory, what can SE do?"
pls tell me its not as bad as this. need 2 no b4 monday pls
You can't say just in general lot of software problems. You have to mention what problems you had with the phone. I was never reading on serious forums about K700 software problems. Only with O2 and Vodafone.
I dont regret that I bought this phone. Took it to the shop and wanted to print the pic and it amazed me the result for 2R size is exactly the same with 7610 Nokia.
When I asked them if Nokia 7610 will be good enough to be printed in 3R size they said not good yet, it will blurred..maximum is 2R. So my question is why paying ore for 7610 if the result of pic will be the same with k700 when you print them?
It's overpriced and the battery lasts for a day. lots of problems with software!
Yes I love my K700 and as I mentioned the 7610 is not in the same league.
I have to say though the S700 is better than the 7610.
i'm wondering why don't nokia supporters compare 7610 with the S700. Afraid to be kicked in the ass by the S700 huh?
I got this fone a week back i am very happy that i made a right choice . SE has definitely givin a boost to cell fone users of its type. It leaves 6600 far behind and directly goes one on one with 7610. Unlike Nokia, SE does not get several fones in the market with the same features. Unlike nokia who just change the the Covers a nd fones as new just givin them a minor face lift. SE is much much better than nokia. THIS FONE
bad choice for buisiness men.stupid phone book from se,as usual.
7610 is symbian
k700i is not....
2 r frm diff segments n classes
bottomline the both r uncomparable
reliable ? thats too bad...ours if fun and reliable..your 7610 sounds boring with such a screen and mono..HAHA..yes mono sounds
