What is Alcatel? Sweden is a very mobily-country and the models that's been selling in Sweden by Alcatel are poor ones that cost 30 bucks. Alcatel is like a joke. Even Siemens is like joke!
Sony Ericsson, Samsung and Nokia are bestseller, and I think that shows it all! It's the truth. If the sell best, maybe it's for a reason. Maybe they really ARE GOOD!
it's obvious that most of these long-winded reviews are by users who have already made up their minds about which phone is "best". the truth is that they are all good (nokia, SE, samsung, etc), but the features and some details are different. just pick features that you need and forget about brands. the perfect phone does not exist!
You can find a REVIEW in my site about k750i, i translated it from german to english
HI adam526:thank you for your good explanation,you have reviewed some important facilities on mobile phones but i think that most important features on handies are as follow:
1.good antenna EXT.(onnestly ALCATEL is the best & SE is the worst(after Nokia,Siemens & even Samsung))
2.Good shape(in my openion Samsung & SE are the best And ALCATEL is the the worst(after Siemens&Nokia))
3.Simple connectivity to PC: SE & Nokia ARE best & Samsung is the worst(after AlCATEL & SIEMENS))
4.User Friendly Menu: ALL of them are equal but often SIEMENS models are bad,
5.Goood Camera :all of them are bad(never i'll prefer to use my any kind of handy in except of real camera.
6.beautiful sound & ringtone (onnestly my ALCATEL OT756 is the best & SE k700 is next,others are equal.
7.Mp3 Player with big memory card (my SIEMENS SL-45i was the best & after that SE is good (I didn't test ALCATEL ot s853 but it looks good in all multimedia featurs.
8.FM Radio:i think all of them are equal
9.Small & Light(all of them are equal but nokia's productions are usually big & heavy.
10.Good screen & good fonts(samsung is the best & ALCATEL & SE,are the next)in equal size of body
11.Good connection to the headset( SE is the best & after that SIEMENS,Nokia.....ALCATEL models havenot had BLUE TOOTH yet,Except of new model OT S853
12.Stability in use: Nokia is the best
& after that SE,SIEMENS,ALCATEL & the WORST is SAMSUNG.
13.SIEMENS's are so slow, but others are equal.
-I also know t610 and k700 and i like the menu end everithing of them but alcatel OT 756 is better (do you want to try it?....3 type of menu X 10 colors x 8 atmosphear)
YES!! some models of ALCATEL mobilephone have some problems( but not all of them)
-Push to talk is very important my friends but only few people have it
finally acc. to a.m. reasons my first selection is ALCATEL 2nd.:nokia 3rd.:SE 4th.:SIEMENS 5th.:SAMSUNG,
thank you for good discussion & your good information abaut handies,........BYE
I forgot to said, that SE phones have the best casing. Especially t610 has aluminum casing, not like nokia plastic. SE phones were made of quality materials
For me the most importangt things are now in a phone:
-Goood Camera(K750i is the best now, you should check sample shots on my site: http://sek750i.uw.hu )
-Mp3 Player with big memory card
-Small and light
-Good connection to the headset(not like nokia's - i have now nokia 3200, and it's headset always unplugs itself in my pocket...)
-K750 is the only phone, which supports real usb connection(if you want to fill an 512 mb card for a nokia you have to wait 12 hours, bacause via pop port the connection speed is max 5-6 kb/sek)
-And with k750i it's almost 500 kb/sek, and it works as a pendrive
-And symbian nokia's are sooo slow, except 6630, but it cost a little too much and too big and too heavy.
-I know t610 and k700 and i like the menu end everithing of it
-My brother use to have alcatel, and some of my friends(not the same model) - With these there were always problems - it always turns off from itself and so on. The quality is not comparable to SE phones
And which is not important to me:
-EDGE - in my 3200 there is EDGE but i never use it, so it's for me unnecesarry
-Push and talk is also not important, bacause only few people have it
SO YOU SHOULD BELIEVE ME(US), AND THINK ABOUT IT
-I din't just said these things, i use to read a lot about these thing in forums, reviews...
Hi adam526 & silver,
I wrote just a few problem abaut SE(not all),
Anyway SE is also good(of course after other
older telecommunication brand like Nokia,ALCATEL,SIEMENS,....),your idea abaut other brands shows that you never tried them but i have tested SE K700 & T630,Nokia 6230 &6600,ALCATEL ot511,715,735,756,... & now I,ll never
prefer any type of SE for use.
you should try them before any discussion.
Nokia 6230i has much smaller display. And you shoul read the reviews about this phone(also k700), that this phone has the best screen the ever seen. It' vivid, bright and has very good colors. And i would NEVER buy alcatel, because it's crap. There are a lot of problems with alcatel phones...
1) The screen is kept in proportion to a relitavely small phone... Personally, i am more bothered about the 2mp camera than the screen size (which i think is more than sufficient).
2) This phone isn't designed for the EDGE market moron!
3) Only 40 channel polyphonic? Whats your point? It plays mp3's as ringtones too... The last nokia i saw could only play wav's... This might have changed though... Not sure...
4) This point is somewhat incomprehensible, but i think you are now complaining about the signal strength that SE phones have... All i can say is, my T610 gets better signal than ANY nokia i've ever had... With my T610 i can just about get signal in Wales... Never with a Nokia...
So, tbh, noone wants to hear your negative remarks about SE... Most blokia users are just getting pissy because the likes of Sony Ericsson are continously growing and, IMO; will become the no.1 phone provider...
1.medium size screen!!
3.Just 40 channel polyphonic!
4.of course Antenna EXT. is bad like other productions of sonyericsson.
5.and also so expensive (like others...)
I prefer to buy NOKIA 6230i or ALCATEL OT S853
i am sure in that, beacuse this phone also can play video in fullscreen, and than you have to watch it the right side up. And there is a paint program in the phone, so you can change things
with most fones when u hold it the right way up the picture is a landscape one...can u change the settings to do that with the k750?
I think, you can't. It's the same as all dgital camers. First you have to push the shutter button a little, then it focuses. After that you have to push the button full, than it takes the photo. That's autofocus
I think, that this is a great idea, that you have to rotate the phone 90 degree, because it's more like a digital camera, than a phone. And shutter button is a very cool thing. I think, that if you briwse between pictures you can watch the screen both horizontally and vertically, but if it's in you hand, like a normal phone, than you cant see the picture in the whole screen, it's like a nokia problem
whatever the result is, you can always rotate the photo because there's a built-in picture editor in this phone. so don't worry, whether it's upside down, sideways, etc
Look at the picture to the left. Look on the right of the joystick, to the sides. Can you see a button? That's the button to take the picture. You'll be holding it to the sides (rotate left 90*) like a digital camera. If you hold it upwards, it'll just be a protriat picture taking like that of a digital camera. No fuss there.
