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?
u know freind i have craze of cell phone but i haven,t seen such a great handset before . This hand contains all the good specifation . Its an Awsome handset . Way to gooooooooooooooo Sony ericson . Cheerzzzzzzzz
