Fabulous phone but lacking in battery life. Only lasting 1.5 days. Apparently this is normal and not quite what sony ericsson were looking for or advertising
i suggest people who are looking for a new phone not to buy SE and buy other brands...this is because i dont like to see so many SE users..if SE is massed then quality will drop like nokia and won't keep SE on its toes anymore and stop producing wonders like this K700 . i hope SE keep producing beautiful phones like this . which will ultimately benefit people who knows true quality . like us .
if you can find a 7610 at the same price for a k700 , then you talk about comparing them
As much as I love my K700 but I have to say the Nokia 7610 is a better phone in fact its not in the same league don't take my word for it check both out at the same time and you'll know why.
In answer to the question about why better than 7610:-
Better, faster software
More internal memory
Better clarity polyphonic and mp3 tones
7610 look like posh should have one style over content!!!
The k700i is without doubt far superior to any Nokia currently on the market. How can I be so sure?? I work for O2 in the technical department and we get to pull them to bits and do comparisons. I have owned a k700i for the last 7 months well before they officially came out, when I got it, it held it's own against anything and still does by miles. I previously have had no other phones other than nokia and felt my old 6600 couldn't be beaten, then some thievin' scumbag relieved me of my nokia as well as my car!! Got the ericsson and am delighted............ car still gone!!
In short E398 has a new master.... who's your daddy? K700i is your daddy!!!
Read lot of it. compared with all the curent model. Found this one to be a mix of all the features. No other model can be compared with this model for its features, look or anything. Will be buying soon. Recommend to everyone to hav it. if u miss it. then u r gone. it's superb. I am a fan of SE. It's a excellent handset. A must hav!!!!
de competition between SE k700i & N7610 has ended. here comes de nw battle with moto e398. sigh...
& to "!!!",
wat makes u said "the truth is there have been a lot of sony ericsson fanboys who have been giving the e398 "1 1 1" to make it look worse in comparison to the k700." any prove with tat? pls dont say things without thinking, ok?
Excellent phone, good design and very impressive features than other phone of corz with exception to SE P900.
.......... there we go again..... battle between E398 n k700..... aihz.... to me the k700 pics are fine....just use a software to remove the noise..... the E398 however is not as clear n it appears pixelated.... n yes 41 mb is sufficient.....
i am not a supporter of brands. just good phones and this one is one of them
3 days ago the sony ericsson k700 was on "3 4 4" with 6592 votes while the motorola e398 was on "4 5 4" with 1877 votes. since then the k700 has gone up by 128 votes and scores "3 5 4" while the e398 has gone up by 191 votes and scores "3 5 3". does that mean that sales of e398 have suddenly massively overtaken the k700 and everyone in the last 3 days has been pleased with the k700 and disappointed with the e398? nope, the truth is there have been a lot of sony ericsson fanboys who have been giving the e398 "1 1 1" to make it look worse in comparison to the k700.
Tealeaf, dont get so defensive :-). i said the camera quality is better on the e398. i didn't say by how much(as it happens, not by much. i think the k700 camera is better overall - the panaromic shot capability just nudges it slightly ahead). the k700 has more features though it doesn't allow 4x zoom on 640x480 like the e398 does. the photos look nicer on the e398 - theyre slightly more blurry but the amount of noise on the k700 photo makes them look less nice. also, the amount of noise increases the lower the light is. ok, so you prefer the photo quality, but its still in the eyes of the beholder.
build quality? a lot of people will disagree with you there. i didnt exactly beat hell out of either phone, but the e398 certainly takes knocks better than the k700. the hardened rubber and metal combination of the e398 seems stronger to me than the plastic and metal of the k700. the e398 doesn't scratch anywhere near as easily as the k700.
enjoy your k700, anyway. the last person is right - read the reviews, try them both out, then decide which is best for you.
