my only bad comment about this phone is the joystick....
this has always been a problem for sony ericsson that they cant improve their joystisk quality to ensure all their phone that equiqed with joystick can be better....that's all...while good comments....everything from design to features and batery life is good and satisfying...
Had this phone for almost seven months and have no major complaints so far. The only problem maybe the joystick which SE phone's common problem. Sometimes, when playing games the fone hangs but other than that it is ok specially the camera.:-)
what's the latest software ..i now have:
what improvements does the next (if any) software have over this
thanks in advance

One correction by the way, K800 does not support TrackID it is avaiable in K810 or using softwaremods.
i really like the K800 but after reading sum of the reviews about the joystick i'm not to sure anymore. My knowledge on fones is a bit warped and for this reason i am looking for a user friendly fone. Hope there is sum1 out there that can advise me. If there is anyone that can explain what T9 means i wud appreciate it. Naz (South Africa)
i have had the k700i for about a year and a half now, and i would like to move up. thing is i do not understand the significance of some of the new features. someone please explain to me about WLAN, EDGE, HSCSD, AND 3G should affect my choice in choosing the next handset. am eyeing the k800, and if i could get some explanations it would really help
Great Phone, Have no big complaints other than saying that the joystick isnt very fluid, i find it unresponsive many times, other than that good phone overall.
@victor - a previous poster has referred to sony documentation and quotes that the phone can take in maximum 8GB memory card, so the 1gb you want to add shouldnt be a problem.
i updated my software with SEUS( i have cid 52 now ) ,HOW CAN I GET to my previous software or how i debrand it
K800i can hold up to 8 gig M2 memory.
ref: SE Knowledge base
can someone tell me what is the max card which can be put in the slot? thank you
Got the K800i about 2 weeks ago. Priced at 1,115 dirhams. Added 1 Gig M2 memory (220 dirhams).
Positives - Easy to use, easy to configure (phone asks you if you want to transfer numbers from SIM card to phone, etc), good pictures (autofocus, flash) and the sound is good.
Negatives - battery life is about 2 to 3 days (had better mileage with other phones), unable to sync the phone to my pc using the official SE software while the "My Phone Explorer 1.6" software did it flawlessly.
Though the software is not that "customizable" unlike motorola and nokia, the good thing is that the phone generally functions well on how it was designed for.
Am happy with the phone and posted to say Thanks to all who posted with first hand info and to GSMArena for the info on the units (the shootouts, specs) which made it easier for me to select what I particularly need.
To the person having the operation failed problem, the only thing you can do is take it back to the place you brought it from or a sony ericsson repair centre. There is nothing you can do to prevent this problem yourself (updating the se firmware through the update service or doing a master reset on the phone does nothing-i know from experience). This is apparently a common problem, personally i didnt bother sending it away for repair because i dont play games, but it is annoying for someone who does. The cause of the problem i have heard is not disconnecting the usb cable from the pc correctly but i may be wrong. There is a website that you can pay them to get a different version of the firmware which allegedly fixes the problem, but i cannot guarantee that and also why should you pay to have to fix a fault if your phone is in guarantee?
