I am using this unit for 4mos already n so far not a single problem encountered.so i guess,u have a fone at it's best.
Louzy fone.. Guess that Sony E need to learn from Nokia how to make fones. Design and hardware quality of the fone is done well.. But when it comes to using the fone features, it is all unusuable or irritating.. I owned this fone for 2 months and happily traded it for the N-Gage QD,
a great symbian os powered fone.. At first i was impressed of this fone (K700i).. Got radio, mp3, bluetooth, stereo sound, cool design and 4x digital zoom.. Wow!! The best fone eva!! Well NOT!!!
Pain part of this fone: To use the 4x digital zoom for taking photos and recording videos, you need to lower the pixels and why is that? In the end, you would be having low quality videos and photos done by a zoom function (well its better not to use it at all then).. Worst of
all, you are limited to 41mb of memory and there is no expansion slot for photos, games, videos and mp3. You can only transfer pics and photos by the fone bluetooth function and transfer it to
the pc via a bluetooth dongle.. This all drains battery and wastes TIME!!! The battery life drains quickly when playing java games and playing mp3 or radio via the speakerfone. My N-gage plays mp3 and games for hours n i have no complains about low battery. Worst of all, when taking photos or shooting videos with this fone, there is NO WAY you can mute the shutter sound.. And
why is that?? This makes users of K700i to feel shame when they are doing so. Nokia fones have NEVER had this kind of pathetic feature in all their cam fones.. SE always wants their product to look classy and showing so-called quality business like feature.. BUT, they provide all the inconvenience to all users as much as possible when the features are used..
For ppl going to buy this poor fone: DO AVOID!! The best alternatibe is the N-Gage QD. It is cheaper than this unusuable fone and have features that are non-inconvenient, unlike this one. The QD is also the cheapest smartfone at the moment. Symbian OS programs are always available and
upgraded by programmers so you will have the thrill to use the quality programs.. The battery life of the QD is also long. You can also get symbian program Ultramp3 to install for playing mp3.. How great?? Can this fone (K700i) do that?? Haha.. No!!
A previous forum posts states that the K700i reception is also horrible. Another inconvenience?? Well i am not surprised to know that.. It's a Sony :)!! Avoid this fone at all costs. Never trust a SE product.. Shame on them.. Thank you for listening..
Pls, can any one tell me why I cant copy all my contact 4rm by laptop 2 K700?when i synchronise, only 10-13 contacts are copied to the phn & it says synchronization completed.
can somebody please tell me which is the best pickture size on k700i e.g 640*480, 1280*960
Matthew we are all happy that you like the K700 but we're still trying to understand what you're actually trying to communicate.When you're on Earth do as the humans do.
They say practice before you preach...
i think that is for a reason. and all i can say is that it goes down well for that Mathews guy who tells someone else to "do his reaserach" and "know his facts".
well to be honest i could not find a single fact he had gotten right. just an immature SE fan boy raving on about something he hardly understands with his rather thick skull... just try and decode wht he says with his dreadful writing and you'll know what i mean.
yeah i'm from jamaica i just both the phone a week ago & so far it's performing well i have no problems the phone is beautiful i'll advise everybody to get one if u can afford it. and the nokia 6230 is practically the worst camera phone ever although when the phone rings its loud and clear but sony ericsson riles whose with me.
Matthew : wat the hell u writnig? u think now u sms'ing?is hard to read ur crap words
Really Nice phone, had it for about 4 months, many useful functions...Bluetooth, Infrared (though not much used), Mp3 Player, Video Recorder, It would have been a perfect phone if it had a card slot and at least a mega pixel camera...But one thing is for sure, I LOVE SE.
huzzi, dint u c how i set "Noka4eva str8", Nokia "were" the biggest leading fone brand in the world, howeva, wen SE, introduced da 1st eva camera nd color screen camera fone bakk in 2000 (do ur research), 3 yrz l8r (2003) SE became da biggest leading Brand name in da wrld, so its a tru fact dat SE r Currently, nd always will b betta dan Nokia!
Nd u say no ova fone brand has 2 cameras, m8 ur on a fone web syt nd ur tryna tel me u havent seen da Motorola E1000, now dat may not b an SE fone but u sed dat Nokia r da onlee brnd wit 2 cameras, well m8 i proved u rong dere...
Also u sed dat Nokia hav released da most fones, wot doze dat prove? dey may have released pure fones (wich is a waiste of money) but trus me wen i say dis, most of dem sold badly, b'cos of Nokias problem, dey make 2 similar fones, nd da olda 1 has more features dan da newer 1 y? 4 example: da Nokia 3100 was released afta da 3200 (i had both) so wen i got da 3100 (stupidly without doin reserch, i lyked da look) it dint hav a camera, no infared, no radio etc nd da 3200 had all yet its an olda brand...wotz da point of Nokia doin dat?
so "Huzzy" nd "Nokia 4eva" u've met ur match a tru SE fan, dnt go round tryna make ppl h8 SE, wen "WE" all kno SE is beta dan Nokia!
Ppl i am not saying Nokia is crap, i am saying compared 2 Sony Ericsson, Nokia is cRAP lol :), so plz do get da SE K700i, memba it is refundable as lng as u dnt damage it, i dnt expect evry1 2 lyk it, but 2 cuss it wen im around...ur not very smrt!
Thnz 4 ur tym "Matthew aka Sony-Ericsson 4eva"
Nokia4eva!!! Wot r u on bout in ur post?
No offence but u r completly rong, just b'cos u hav probz wit SE dn't make it crap, i have bin usin my SE K700i 4 a yr now nd im bout 2 upgrade 2 anuva SE (proudly) aka da k750i.
U say ur N-Gage QD plays games longa dan K770i, well its b'cos dat fones was design 4 games, do ur research, nd dat da battery runz out quick wen u play games nd music, m8 ur rong, bin dere, dun dat nd i dint xperience wot u did.
Also ur complanin bout space, u cn't get enuff music wit 41mb, das y dey invented file size compression.
Nd trus me i guarentee u Nokia is far more dwngraded dan SE, so get ur facts str8, da K700i, is much betta fone dan da N-Gage QD, the N-Gage may hav similar features, but da K700i has more, its smaller, ligther nd is still cheap.
So plz nxt tym Nokia4eva!!! wntz 2 chat speak wit evidence, facts, ur opinins (dat make sense) but dnt boi out Sony Ericsson, b'cos we all kno dey r beta, smarta nd a fasta growin bizzness dan Nokia.
Thnkz 4 ur tym "Matthew aka Sony-Ericsson 4eva"
