This phone is great, the reason i got is because is the only phone that comes with xenon flash. all the other 3mpx camara phones come with LED flash. In pitch black the quality of the xenon flash is awesome. the only problem is the quality of the video, because it only films on 3gp quality, what a waste. Also the battery life last only 1 or 2 days. But over all i love it, and i wont change it until someone comes out with a 5mpx xenon flash
just afew question to K800i users.
1)Besides 3gpp format what other format can this phone play movie (eg convert and transfer from VCD or DVD).
2) Can this phone install office suite to edit and view documents.
3) What kind of photo edit function does this phone has. Can I do frame & artwork.
Thanks in advanced
OK! we established that the camera is good, APART from that what else is good here? or better than in other nokia models
hi there! i became a SE fan after my smooth experience with the s700i. Just wondering if thìs phone's a better choice than the w850i, and can the message alert tones b changed to mp3. Anyone know?
You all that have a K800i...what about the weifgt and the size..isn't too large and have to be the perfect phone...Please your comments...
Ur software is corrupted! Have you send for service, they will reformat ur phone n upgrade the software

got my phone back after 2-1/2 months from sony ericsson tech department since the problem was resulted (phone hanged then it never opened till i walk my butt to SE service center), up to know, i am not getting any serious problems encountered. If you really want to compare this phone over N73 -- the nokia phone tends to over saturize the color of the picture you got from the 3.2mpx, other than that -- the size of the screen, the sound, document viewer N73 is far better... But i still chose SE K800i
Why? I fell in love with the XENON FLASH!
The best! any updates or comments please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hear from you guys.
(By the way, I am planning to buy a PDA phone, any suggestions?)
Lastly, which one is better--Samsung SGH-F700 or Samsung SGH F520?
Need ur answers...
I Still have that "OPERATION FAILED" problem with application and games and i can't install any softwares, I restarted my phone , did the master reset but all in vain.
Oh, this phone rocks. I`m working at mobile shop, so I had a chance to play with it and compare with Nokia N73, N80. I`ll get K800 Monday. The reasons why I love it :
1) awesome camera (I sent few pictures that are posted here to my friends. They thought it's a digital camera and were shocked when I told them it's a phone. So this means I`ll have good camera always with me. And it got the BEST flash I have ever seen in a phone)
2) 3G (yeah, at last I`ll have a 3G phone)
3) I really like how it looks
4) web browser is ok
5) sound quality is ok (not so good as walkman phones but I have mp3 player and it's better to save battery.
and about bad stuff :
1) I don`t care about video, N73 video is better, N93 is almost godlike but it's too big and expensive. I just don`t need video rec so much.
2) size? who said that SE K800 is big? Actually I don`t like those new thin phones. K800 size and weight is ok, you can feel it in your hands
3) it's not a smartphone. But I don`t need office and stuff.
Just one question - what's about battery? Maybe someone who uses this phone for longer time could say how long it lasts. (moderate use, not only waiting for a call)
I think K800 is the best of the best handphones in the market now...What do you all think?
Just got my phone today, and i have to say this is absolutley without a shadow of doubt the best thing, not just phone, i have ever purchased. The picture quality of the camera is amazing, its far superior to my sisters digital camera, and it has exactly the same megapixels! The phones screen is crisp and clear, and it has the look and feel of a top notch quality product. I would recommend this phone to anyone-except for people who want an amazingly good MP3 player on the phone. On here, it does the job, but other sony ericsson walkman phones are far superior music wise, so if you want to have better music playing capabilities on a phone then you need the W850I. If like me, you have a good mp3 player anyway or it doesnt bother you about the mp3 player, this is the one to get!
And by the way...is it normal for the phone not to display what the picture or video really looks like..i mean for example the picture is spongebob and the image to be seen in the menu is not spongebob but when you view the image the right image shows-up.and in the video part,for example the video starts on the part of a dancing kid but the displayed image is one of the pictures in the camera album/pitures,but when you'll also view and play the video the right video will be played...thanks in advance...
Got this phone for more than two months now and all i can say is...FANTASTIC!!!considering that i am only 17 yrs old...
My memory card (512 mb)seems to be having problems...there are times that i can't open the pictures saved on the card,it says no mem card inserted or something like that. so i have to get the mem card out of the phone and insert it again.its time consuming that way.
All the features are really great specially the camera, however the video is not that good.
Question: Will i still need to put in a virus cleaner/protector in my phone??Or will i just upgrade my software??...because i am very fond of sending and receiving pictures and mp3s via bluetooth and i am worried that i may get certain viruses and such...i hope to get answers..thanks in advance.
k every1.. im gona say everything there is u want 2 no about this phone.. in terms of pic quality this phone is gr8! the picture quality is amazing and is better than the n73.. but in terms of video quality.. n73 is muuch better.. the picture quality of k800 being 3.2MP is jus discraseful.. its no better than n70 or 6630.. since iv seen all their video qualities..
mp3 on this phone is gr8.. but is not loud.. which is ok since the music being so clear makes up 4 it. in terms of buttons, if u have chubby fingers it can be a problem coz u will push 2 keys wen u only intend 2 push 1.. lol dont ask how i know.. the joystick is very easy 2 use.. the secondary camera is good too.. only thing about this phone besides video which is not good.. is the battery 2.. doesnt last that long.. oh and if u have ur memory full and u play games while listning 2 music its guaranteed ur phone will restart by itself after a while... hope that helps any1? and yes the red light of the camera annoys me 2.. i dono how 2 get rid of it.. if any1 has any questions about this phone.. email me 'email@example.com'
i can help u decide whether or not it is worth 2 buy this phone.. i have had it for nearly 3 months and i LOVE it.. it bought the case especially made with it.. it is perfect.. only thing SE needs 2 make.. is speakers 2 plug in2 the phone so it can become a stereo and an adapter 2 plug in ur car 2 listen 2 music from there! otherwise this phone is excellent.. solid 8.5/10
I had this phone for 3 months and its great..now i bought P990i
i hate for se k800i,coz the video quality is pooooooor,and the screen is small than n93,and havn't wifi,and not operation system.......and the finally,n93 overal much much better than se k800i,we can watching video from n93 to tv direckly. so get n93.
musta mga kabayan, mga fans ng sony ericsson k800i, I bought mine from chinatown 2 days ago in new york, but it doesn't say where the phone was made at the back, battery and earphones are from china, i assume that it must be from china, hope the phone's durable and no software problems.
