I have gone through many makes after through study on all aspect very firm Sony Ericsson K800 is the best and dependable.
actually we have the same f*kin problem.. im havin hard time on w/c to buy n73, n93 or this k800i.. guess wat?? i choose k800i.. i just bought it yesterday.. and i dont regret it.. THIS PHONE IS AMAZING!! i'm so pissed that everyone is saying that it has a low volume speakers.. but mine works fine.. "JUST ADJUST THE VOLUME!" suuuper clear and loud.. it's speaker works fine in anything, playing mp3/radio w/ the fone or headset, calling my frends using loud speaker.. no prob at all.. k800i video is great.. it is smaller than of that in n73 but this one sooooo.. clear and not blured.. for guys using video at bad lighting enviro's try adjust the brightness and the result should be GREAT!!
K800i VS N73
k800i hav more options than N73, they're equals in daylight & K800i beat N73 in low light condition cuz of this CYBERSHOT things.
N73 got this session, K800i has no light to support the video. in good light condition K800i able to catch a clear vids but if not, the vids are terible. N73 perform well in both conditions.
K800i still affected from it brother W series . although the voice quality not as good as the W's but still K800i better than N73 cos it has more bass oriented.(but i dont know N73 music edition)
-(thru speaker phone)
N73 got a loud speakerphone unlike K800i
K800i got netfront(HTML) browser while N73 just got a standard net browser. Both can use 3rd party software such as mini opera but in K800i u can browsing in landscape mode. N73 cant do this.
N73 better than K800i. N73 hav symbian Os & java while K800i just java supported.
K800i cheaper than N73. dont need to waste ur money if u can get d cheap & complete phone. here K800i is the Cheap & complete phone.

i dont think mercedes is the real car. just as nokia's connecting people. for me lambourghini would be a real car & kamasutra teach what is connecting peoples realy are. lol. SE better than nokia mate :)
K800 & K800i just d same, they're just regional selling code differences. in china u'll get K800c
for my N73 im using "Total Video Converter"

1. Low quality video recording.
2. Not comes out with Memory stick.
3. Speaker phone quite soft.
4. Not symbian supporting system.
5. 3G's video streaming or TV cant in landscapes view.
Best Phone so for general public..very happy with it..Camera works wonders, again as u may hav heard speaker isnt that great..Other then that..Great purchase for the price.
bout the battery?? it is great.. the only problem is that if u have ur k800i in ur hand u cant stop urself playing with it and listen to radio, mp3's, video calling to ur frends, text and call and call and text all day, browse the web, keep on sending and receiving bluetooth files and lastly u just can't stop urself SHOOTING PHOTO's.. in short K800i was just soooooooooo...FUN!!
3G phone bad signal reception? "waw!" u live in mountain or in a dessert?? are'nt u?? try open the 3G and GSM at the same time.. sure ur signal is at its FULL all the time (even underwater).. bout the sound.. is it really low volume?? do anyone know how to use the volume keys located at the top right side of the fone..geez!! but full volume already?? still unsatisfied.. ur mp3 must be the problem..
i just got the k800i for like a few weeks, overall i'd say it's a good phone, but then again, something about it made me not like it as much as i used to. like others mentioned, the speakers are kind of low, and the battery, ehhh .. it gets low quickly, doesnt really last a day, or maybe its just me? but yeahs. and the service reception isnt all that good, i lose reception easily in places that i used to recieve good reception in, and even some of my friends recieve good reception in places while i have none. haha. but yeah, besides that. nice phone. the camera's the bestt.
hi mates!! i just bought my k800i yesterday.. & "I LOVE IT!!" (9/10- i just wish they put wi-fi in it) Great Camera & MP3 Player in one handy device.. the Camera Flash is great (Really Looks & Act Like a True DigiCam).. can even shoot a clear photo at "TOTAL DARKNESS".. the video, even it only records in 176x144 pixels in size at least it shoots so CLEAR even in poor lighting conditions and its no problem even to those people with very shaky hands, the video will still be great and will not blur that much.. the sound, ITS GREAT!! i tell u.. headset or loud speaker..NO PROBLEM AT ALL!! u kud play mp3 or listen to radio all day and all night long!! i really recommend u this fone.. "DigiCam", "MP3Player", "Radio", "VideoCalling", everything!! in one SEXY BLACK PHONE!!haha any questions about K800i, "I'M THE PRO!!"
This phone is great..but.the speaker is low volume....anway i have it almost all phones possible so far...i've seen everything of them,and let me tellyou something people from all arownd the world...when you want a real car you buy a mercedes...and when you want a real phone...you go to mother or all phones..buy a nokia..because..Nokia...connecting people..see ya!!!
I love my k800i to death. BESTEST PHONE I EVER GOT. I love everything about it. The only thing i would change is for a louder speaker. It comes out super clear but I wish it was louder so I can bump it the jamz.
