1/ Symbian software - great - but you'd buy a P900 if you wanted something comparable
2/ 1 Meg camera - if you don't think that - at least at this stage of development - that all phone cameras are mearly toys for teens - then you've got no idea what 'quality' is.
3/ Games on a phone - get a life...
4/ Classy design - well, that's your opinion of course....
5/ oh, and the small fact that the 7610 is at least 50% more expensive than the K700
6/ the 6230 is really the logical competitor to the K700, as the price point is similar - shame about the crap screen, REALLY crap camera quality (as opposed to the K700's mearly crap camera quailty)
7/ sure the K700's battery life is crap, but I'm always near a charger at the end of the day, so it doesn't annoy me tooo much
8/ K700's memory is dissappointing, but 6230's MMC is not really easy to use, and if you've ever tried using Nokia PC Suite you'd know what a waste of time that is
If I had the extra money to blow on a 7610, I might buy one, but as it is so much more expensive it doesn't really get considered for buyers of the K700. It's no use comparing an expensive car against a cheaper model - they're for different buyers with different considerations, and for me the K700 is superior to the 6230 at the same price.
So what if one is symbian and one is not? Why does that automatically mean that they can't be compared?
I think what decides if they are comparable is the fact that they are both geared towards the same kinds of people. They features that can be directly compared - mp3/video/photos/games.
Ok, my last point - I think the 7610 is superior to the k700 becauase of:
1)2 years worth of releases of symbian software to customise it.
2)1 Megapixel camera (yes I really think the quality is superb)
3)Nokia Ngage games are playable (I would compare these to Gameboy Advance quality an d speed.
4)Classy design (debatable, I know)
I believe the customisation aspect makes up for any negatives, as if you don't like how the built in 'realplayer' - you can get something else to play media. The phone certainly has a fast enough processor (130Mhz?) to run video/music well. Same applies to alarm etc.
Those are my reasons anyway. I'm not interested in mp3 playability - as I don't think that is a real issue in any case - how many mp3's can you put on the k700? Even if you put the '10' that someone said they could - you don't have much space for anything else! (photos, themes, games etc!)
So I think that is a irrelevant aspect of the K700.
I'm sure you'll beg to differ, but you must agree that the reasons above are good enough to choose the 7610 over the k700.
I am willing to debate anything!
It would be a real loss, please come here when ever you want, you are real amusing to any doctor
Go play with dolls kiddo, let adults here talk about problems of their phones and how to solve them
More bad things in review who Blokia guys don't know about it?
Nokia still does not accept the fact that the alarm clock is the most important feature of the organizer. Hence it's the only part of the Clock application in the Extras folder. Still it is not repetitional and single days when it should alarm you can not be set.
Voice recorder can make up to 1 minute long records. You can listen them, send them via Bluetooth, e-mail or MMS. File manager is very simple, it does not display system files. I recommend you to download some freeware programs, e. g. FExplorer. By the way, there are no games installed in the phone.
Nokia 7610 still supports GPRS class 6 only and 3/2 timeslots. Nokia is presently the slowest from all top-class phones and with its GPRS speed it can be compared to the cheapest handsets.
– No radio
– Mono audio player
– Slow GPRS
– Nonstandard memory card
I think FireFly don't know about some Nokia 7610 better features like a "good quality" MP3 and crushing system.
I think Blokia guys don't know to read, it is written in this site on review
The Real Player application plays MP3 files in a very poor quality and skips sound almost every second. The integrated speaker has no bass and the headphones can't be connected to the phone. The sound quality can be improved by using some special programs, e.g. Ultra MP3, but Nokia 7610 is almost useless as a MP3 player without the headphones. Tough luck - many people are waiting for this feature.
this is not a symbian phone u nut , u only can compare it to the 6230 rockhead
I don't see why people give the excuse 'you can't compare these phones because they are different'. I think that excuse is getting a bit outdated. But they fail to think about 'why' you can't. The real 'why' reason is that the Nokia has significantly better features and can be classed as a 'smartphone', whereas the SE can't. I believe both phones are targeted at similar audiences and are similarly priced. You can't really compare the 7610 with P800/P900 because of the huge price difference and that they are more 'business orientated'. They are also significantly bigger. I believe the 7610 because of it's reduction in size from it's predecessors makes it small enough for the main stream.
Guys, you don't know how to form your battery. At first day you have to charge it for at least 16 hours and than two more cycles make it so that your phone turn off because battery is empty and than charge it again for 4 hours and do that for two more times. That is all.
hey SE users,
lets not bother to argue with little children here. It's proven SE had leap a great step from it's predessor. while Nokia is not making improvements to their products. Nokia have been going round and round with the same features on different models. I've never regret giving up nokia for SE
hey childish nokia supporters, this is a SE page. Stop bragging nokia phones here. K700i is on different category with the 7610. If u people wanna compare nokia with SE, we have the P900
oh..I dun think we need to bring out the P900 for the 7610. P800 can do the job.
I have owned a Nokia 6230 for a week before giving it back for this, the K700i. I dont know why people here are comparing the K700 to the 7610 as they're in a slightly different class of phones here. The ture class comparision woulb be 6230 vs K700i. In terms of spec and prices, they are almost identical! so let me begin... The 6230's menu system is very coarse and doesn't look very attractive! The screen itself i think is off lower wuality to that of the K700. The 6230 had reset itself twice on me, once on exiting Bluetooth and the other from SMS whilst the k700 (now 2 weeks old) has never died on me. The Memory i must say the 6230 would have to win hands down just cos it could use MMC, but it is a hassle to take the card out EVERYtime you want to transfer files (other than using Bluetooth). The battery life is an issue for the K700 also. The battery on the K700 is NO WHERE near the quoted times. In terms of pure functionality, the K700 is very friendly and very fun to use. The profile and themes are much fun to be had, and also the MP3 ring tones are a nice touch! Currently i have Alicia Keys as my main tune, it ALWAYS turn heads! The camera, they're very similar, but the K700 does have a decent LED white light!
to kel, u r right, but i think the nokia 7610s back looks very stylish, and if u take proper care of the phone, it doesnt get any scratches and if u buy a case for it, its perfectly protected, and if it does get scratched since its not being taken care of, buy an x-press on cover, that way, u can hav a differnt colour cover, and a new one, and if u dont want to pay for a cover, u can buy one at ebay for a UK pound ! and if your SE K700 gets scratched sumhow, u cant change the cover, but i`ll respect ur decision, people like different phones and apparently people with a nokia 7610 are defending their phone and SE people are defending theirs, so each to their own
blokiafanboys: you just can´t say 7610 is better tah k700i (or the opposite) because their different, and there are people like me that don´t give a s... about symbian and it´s milions of apps...i give more value to stereo sound, size, build quality, radio, etc
Cool... Nice phone, smart one, completed features... But I'm not try yet...
dude...ur better off with a palm...and nokia is not stable at all , i had the 6610 once too...it hangs and restarts from time to time and the phone will off byitself sometimes
im currently using a nokia 6610, n im very satisfied withthe stability n quality, although dust tends to get inside the screen quite easily...i have used set65, nokia 3310 n nokia is far more better than se in terms of quality n reliability (doesnt hang, restart etc)...but the new k700 is very enticing...i cant decide whether to buy the nokia 7610 or k700..the nokia looks classic n rich but a bit big...i have seen n test these two phones from my customers (im working in pc shop) ...the k700 is a bit thick...but nokia very expensive...the nokia's advantage is the symbian n opera software...can it support normal java games??
