I fully agree with Dazza's comments concerning the K800 as I feel the same. I've had no trouble swapping SIM cards but removing the back cover to get to the SIM literally had me sweating. It's way too difficult to prise open! I too am addicted to the fish photo game.
I only now created a playlist of a segment of an audiobook and it sounded so much better on the K800 than my iriver mp3 player. I was so pleased with the sound output that I purchased a 1 gb M2 card so I could put the entire audiobook on the K800.
I do wish the external speaker's volume could have been louder.
The camera is just superb! Lowlight photos are noisy though, but this is common of most digicams. I'm curious about the size of the sensor used in the camera, does anyone know? I know it does use a CMOS sensor.

Does anyone knows how could i delete my protected file? cos it kinda annoying...keep appearing at my music player...
I bought this phone over the Sony w850i because I believed the better camera brought more to the table than just megabass (w850i). By golly I wasn't disappointed!
The k800i looks alot better than the older k750 model, is sleek and the joystick is incredibly easy to use. The buttons are kinda small so if you have big stubby fingers then maybe go for something else. IMHO small means compact and efficient. Some have complained about small-ish text on the screen, I don't believe the screen text is unreasonably small I think it fits in fine.
The music on this phone is crisp and can be played loud enough, but not as loud as the w850. I don't ever put it on max vol. anyway it's just a bit much. The camera is unbelievably sharp and is easy to use. The camera shutter has so far never opened itself in my pocket as some have suggested it might do. In any case I keep my phone in a nice mobile sock to prevent friction that might just open the shutter in my pocket, and I purchased a screen protector also to keep those fingerprints off the big screen.
The games are fun my gf is addicted to the fishphoto game! The reception is great and the battery life is reasonable.
My only gripe with this phone is getting the sim card out from behind a fixed metal plate. I had to google an answer but here's how I end up doing it... I have slide my fingernail behind it and lift the front enough to push the sim card using my nail. Aside from this annoyance, this phone is otherwise flawless! I've toyed with the w850 but I feel I've made the right choice. The better quality pix, REAL flash, autofocus and (IMHO) better looking design and navigation make it a better choice over the w850i.
Really damn good phone.. with some flaws of course.. the keypad.. im having difficulties pressing the keypad :-(
Another brick by sony ericsson why cant they follow the leaders like Samsung and look at there designs. Slim is in now why have a brick in your pocket? The only good thing is the camera but Samsung have developed a 10 megapixel camera and Nokia a 5.Look at Samsungs phones the best displays, Styles etc Dont be weighed down.
I agree with the writer below, I've been a Nokia customer for many years. They peaked big time with the 6230/6230i and have since declined steadily down hill..
I think the majors need to pay attention to how they continue to develop new software and Nokia are a prime example of giving the customer unnecessary and essentially time wasting and ultimately pointless tasks when trying to either use the calendar or even send an sms! Example - calendar - the old 6230/i 8 moves - new software, new phones 12!This is not in anyway progressive - in terms of technology or making things easier!
Anyway, goodbye Nokia hello Sony Ericsson!!

This phone has got great features and a truly AMAZING camera, but I think the designers got it all wrong with its looks. First of all, I didn't get used with that camera bulge at all. Besides the size of it, the lens cover keeps opening all the f****** time in my pocket. Sometimes I feel like taking the lens cover off. Anyway would I use this phone 2 more months I'm sure the lens cover would go loose. Now the keypad is ill-designed, the designers will have to learn about ergonomics again because I can't say one single thing that's good in this keypad. The buttons are made of cheap material and you keep pressing internet or shortcuts by mistake. The joystick is fine, but then I've had the phone for 1 month only. It's also too big for the kind of usage I do.
I've decided to downgrade to a k610i, which I know has a crappy camera compared to k800i but who cares, if a wanna take proper pictures will then use a proper digital camera.
