Devil, if you're taking abut the 'T650', then of course that is a better choice =)... But i'm eying for the S700. While the K700 is a good phone, you are right, it is for the young.
For those out there don't know what the T650 is, the K700's design (internally) has a space which seems liek a slot of a Memory Stick Duo which suggests that there will be another phone based on that hardware with an expandable memory.
Wait for the T650 in Q3... It will have MSDuo, and a megapixel camera. I wont be getting this K700, I truely think it is oriented to the young. Contrarely to the T series.
Devil, K700 is cheaper than the 6230 my friend...
And for the memory, yes, I understand the K700 is non expandable, but then you pay so much more for more memory on the 6230. Also, test results mentioned the 6230 with only about 2-3 days of normal usage?..
I'm using the T610 and to me I think it's good. What are you comparing the T610 to? The 6600?
Why dont' you look around on all the 'sites' with proper reviews on the K700? All points to it being better than the 6230 except for memory which is limited.
Anyway... no point arguing anyway.. phone isn't even out yet...
but I've seen 'sample' videos taken from teh 6230 and the k700 and i gotta say the k700 bests the 6230 in this categoy... screen te k700 arleady won 128x128 versus 176x220?... so on and so fort..
If you don't want MP3, this phone is excellent. I just hope they fixed all the cons in T610... (RF, battery, screen, cam...) I might be getting a test unit next week, not sure tho...
I agree with kingnbajam, thanxs DMX, i was gonna buy the 6230 but i mite as well wait for the K700. It's enough memory because i wont be using an MP3 Player. Cheers
Devil, you say "The UI of Sonyericsson BLOWS and everybody knows that. RF sucks. Battery life sucks. and if the camera is the same as my P900, it also isnt that fabulous". Have you ever USED the phone yourself?! This guy has: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?s=fdd483927ad7c20606e95893ac126c26&threadid=358003
So before judging too quick, just be sure to know what you're talking about!
OK i will shut my mouth when u say that the K700 is better then 6230 in everything but memory...
But when u say that it ALSO wins indirectly... i say go die lol
More money? wtf are u talkin about..
when you buy 6230, you have 32+11=43MB.
The K700 has 40MB NON-EXPANDABLE.
The UI of Sonyericsson BLOWS and everybody knows that. RF sucks. Battery life sucks. and if the camera is the same as my P900, it also isnt that fabulous. Stop being a fanboy and consider Nokias just a bit, they arent as bad as you think they are. I use to love Nokias but now I try all brands before judging any, and i saw that SE isnt that bad. Of course T610/T630 suck big time, but i think the K700 has market for 13-18 year olds. The real phone all you guys are waiting for is the T650, sucessor of the T630 and will have MSD support.. that will beat 6230. K700 is WORSE than 6230, sorry! It's clear..
hi.... anyone know when tis phone's coming to singapore???? thks in adv...
And one more thing.. 32 MB is MORE than enough.. Had a P800 a year ago (12+16MB) and never reached its limit. When you want to stash hours and hours of MP3's it won't be sufficient of course but then again.. buy an MP3 player..:)
Can't wait till i get my hands on this one..:) Very stylish and what a superb display compared to the T610..
i want to order this phone please give me info.on how to order it online.thank you
K700 phone is very splendid,may i know the price please because i am interested in acquiring one
Janno, just read what i mentioned before..
K700 beats the 6230 in everything except memory.. even that, k700 wins indirectly...
You pay more for the 6230 for memory.... at the same time less features... so you get 32+8mb on the 6230 right? If you want to upgrade to a larger memory, you have to throw away that 32.... and that's money wasted.. and if you are thinkign that you can keep the 32mb to swap.... you'll have to switch off the phone, open the cover, take out battery, take out card and so fort.. troublesome...
to add to it.. nokia's express on covers... it starts creaking and gets loose after a while... so much for solid feel...
HELP! I cant choose between this and the N6230. I really liked this phone when announced, but memory is important to me and the K700 doesnt seem to have enough. Although i do like sonyericsson menus as my past 2 models are se. If only the K700 had more memory...... I cud get the N6230 but i dnt like the looks and the screen is sooooo small. Build quality is also poor, my m8s 8210 cover wont fit bck on! So its gotta b the K700I if one does eventually come out. Does anyone know when this will come out?? Definetely not b4 the K700, rite?
DMX you are damn right! First I wanted to buy the 6230, but when I saw this phone, I changed my mind. I can wait for a couple months more to get a phone that's 10x better! I used to have lots of problems with the Nokia 8210 and it seems Nokia has only added features, without fixing the build-quality. That's a shame Nokia.
K700 has 40mb mememory.
Also, K700's video quality is better than the 6230...
K700's video capability's res goes up to 177x244 or something and is smootehr and not as compressed as 6230..
K700's screen res is much higer than the 6230.
K700 supports 3d games like that of symbian and ngage...
K700 has a better menu system (SE's new User Interface is DAMN nice)
Check that site for pictures on the User Interface..
K700 has a permanent housing (can be changed) so it has better built quality..
My friend has her 6230 for 2 over weeks now and her back cover is getting loose and starting to creak.... typical Nokia...
K700 has a cute built in light at the camera side =)...
K700's IR and Bluetooth is better... i know people who's 6230 is having problems with paring with some bluetooth devices....
k700 has nice brush metal design...
and all of you who are concern abuot the keypad, it's a very clear plastic, which at the bottom has a metal looking finish paint so it actually looks fantastic... better in real life.
Klaas, kiss whose .....? Your double personality's perhaps?
The price is and will be 50 euros more than Nokia 6230. So, more money for less features. Nokia has also started lowering prices up to 25%. Soon the 6230 will have the lowered price too.
