i have one (on Three uk) and mine shows the time on the standby screen so maybe Voda have disabled that feature with their software branding.
also i think the LED flash is almost as good as the xenon in the k800i bar in dark condition and even then its better than most other phones on the market as the LED is really powerful.
Got this yesterday as an upgrade from my K750i on a Vodaphone contract.
Initial impression is that that it's a well made piece of kit, though why brown is supposed to be more stylish than than black or silver is lost on me. Feels nice and solid with a silky finish.
Software is virtually identical to the K750, but they've replaced the joystick (mine had more or less died) with 4 way button surrounding a central selection button so it should last longer. The 4 way is configurable for shortuts to pretty much anywhere in menu system which is nice.
Came with a 256MB memory card and will play AAC files so good for iPod owners.
Major letdown is that they've kept the LED from the K750 instead of the flash from the K800, so while the camers is the same as the K800 indoor photo's are nowhere near as good.
Other annoyance is it doesn't show the clock on the screen when in standby (guess it's better for battery life but not so good for people like myself who don't wear a watch). Pressing the volume buttons will bring up the time, but pressing any other buttons brings up the "press * and unlock" warning which obscures the time for a couple of seconds. Such a petty complaint but it is quite annoying.
Can anybody help me, I really want to get this phone but two things are making me question my decision:
1. Can the led's be used as a flash light like the K750i e.g. Is there a function that lets the flash stay on for a long period of time.
2. Will this come in any other colours like black and silver as im not a fan of brown and purple is a bit girly.
dang i want this phone now i got the money but nowhere to buy it from. i hope online stores in the usa sell it unlocked soon
can someone please post the phone themes on lasyk.net or zedge.net.thanks

SE's upgrades for the 2007-2008 Winter product line. K860i 5 mpx and K830i with 3 mpx! Won't be out til another 6 + months.
thiner = pricier
Just released = price is high usually
but i dont think it will ever be cheaper than k810.
just tak a look at the w880 it it more expensive than the k810.
also i will buy this one instead of the k810 since i dont want a bulky phone and the k770 doesnt have a joystick.
it might take slighty worse pics than the k810 but the smaller size and no joystick wins over picture quality for me.
hello every1!!tell me sumthin about this set.wasn't it supposed to be within medium range of price?because this set doesnt have a xenon flash and that would reduce the price.so why is this set priced more than a k810i?
How come there is cell phone batery will standby for 400H !?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!!
can someone post samples of photos at max ress of sunny outdoors please
ooohh.. The design of this phone is soo good. i agree, if only SE would make a clamshell-version of this one.. name it k771i or something.. it will be a big bang to the market. since up to now there's no cyber-shot in that kind of construction available by SE.
and btw.. the brown coloured one..
.. so nice that take my breath away..
ive just been playing a little more with the phone and the zoom function seems to be disabled when taking photos any larger than vga so im abit dissapointed with that.
thats about all upto now ill report anything else as i find it.
this phone is now availiable on vodafone contract and upgrade and is of very high quality !
yes it does have the cyber-shot technology thats in the k800i and k810i. the only thing that is lacks is the red eye reduction (as it has no xenon flash) and the best pic option that takes upto 8 shots and you pic the best one to keep.
apart from that it has everything else that cyber-shot has to offer.
Hey, i am going to get this phone, i know it has 3.2 megapixel camera, but does it have cybershot technology like the k800i and the k810i????????
please tell me if it does have cybershot, please.
well i just recieved mine (truffle brown)and all i can say is WOW !!!
the handset is stunning and alot better quality than i thought as the housing is amuminum not plastic like i was thinking (it feels like a w880i).
the keypad is small but easy to use even with my big stubby fingers and the screen is bright and clear. only dissapointing part is the big black boarder around the inside of the screen.
feature wise its not different to my k800i but im not too fussed about that as its familier to me also the LED flash is powerful and is almost as good as a xenon flash.
overall i was sceptical about this handset as i really wanted the k850i but i think after seeing this in true life i have no doubt that i have made the right choice and am well impressed with it.
The specifications are very similar to the k810i, except this handset is slightly smaller but has no xenon flash. I think I will wait for the k850i.
like i posted earlier its available on Three uk on any contract.the choice is ultra violet (exclusive to Three uk) and truffle brown
i have one comming tomorrow in truffle brown ill let you all know if i decide to keep it and what it is like as soon as it arrives.
