I just bought the phone about a month ago, and I have tweaked it quite a bit! I now am a proud owner of an SE W800i in the case of K750i!! It works fantastically, and of course the Walkman player is much better than the original player of K750i. I can also use the player without turning on the phone a la Flight Mode.
Then again, I use a 2 GB Pro Duo Card, filled with about 440 MP3's (1.7 GB), and it works flawlessly!! The phone hangs a few times initially, say for about 4 days at the max, then it works perfect.
There is a software called "Noiseware" by Imagenomic, which I use to remove the slight noise from the photos I take using the phone. The pics then look almost crystal clear, and much better than low end digicams. I recommend the software to all Mobile Cam users.
Ahh, I also got the MXE 60 Flash attachment for my cell, and it works brilliantly! The clarity is amazing, and it makes night shots excellent!
Anyone having any queries about the phone are free to email me at my id, because I most probably wont be checking this site too often.
Moreso, I have a few queries myself as to the only main flaw in my phone - the volume of the player. The firmware of my phone has a very low volume. I would like to know if anyone has any idea how to change the firmware to an older one... Please help, as it is the only flaw.
Overall, the phone rocks and rocks hard! My rating - 9/10. My next accessory on the list is the External Speaker attachment :-). Oh I also have the Walkman Headset with the 3.5 mm Jack, which is awesome! I attach me laptop speakers sometimes, and voila!
Main Advantages (with the Firmware Tweak) :
- Excellent 2.0 MP Autofocus Cam, great quality pictures after enhancing with Noiseware.
- Excellent Walkman Music player with Megabass.
- Host of other features, and virtually virus proof (I cannot guarantee this though).
- Very fast Interface and File browsing, especially the MP3s. Amazingly fast!!
Main Problems :
- Low Volume with the New Firmware (the Firmware is RD1B001). Equaliser does not help, as the Bass overshadows the other subtle sounds.
- No stereo widening in the player.
- Not much security of the files, as to hiding or password securing.
- No EDGE (major disadvantage for Mobile Internet users).
- Some minor lack of features and functions, which can be overlooked.
absolutely the best phone around, the features are ecxelent andthe camera is flawless with great definition, i wll upgrade to a K790 soon... even better camera.
I am basically in love with this phone. It has all the features a person can dream of.All though I have only seen it once hey, it still rocks !!!!!!
I have a k750i, its an exellent phone, its just that the joystick is really annoying!you have to keep on pushing it, so im thinking of upgrading to a w850i but i reckon its a bit expensive at the moment
Really good phone if you're going to use all the features. I don't use the camera or music player much these days so I think I'd be better with a more basic phone but hey, it's been a great phone.
k750 is one of the best cell phones I had. I`am using now "smartphone" n80, which is so slow and if you want to call me, try couple of time, because it is not ringing always!! So, not so "samart", but samart enough for me!
Hi i read all your commnets regarding this phone k750i and i have it right now, I dont have any problem with the phone the features are great the mp3 is superB. My problem is i cant play video from my computer beacuse it is mpeg format.
