plain and simple ---- symbian OS will always have bugs...N73 auto restarted on me once..application hanged up on me once...but i accepted this risk because its symbian and a smart phone....
K800 is NOT a symbian or a smart phone....
bottomline...if you just want a plain mobile phone with a digicam and a music player...go for k800...if you want more downloadable features....get the N73...
if you are on cost...get K800..but the memory card M2 is not yet available on stores...and is expensive if you buy one...
if you want cool phone balancing business and multimedia on a phone..get N73...
as for me.. i made my choice and the risk...its N73 for me....
i got this phone about a month ago and all in all its a pretty good phone but ive just realised recently that my phone doesnt show up missed calls or register when ive answered my phone or dialed a number. sometimes it doesnt even register someones calling me.
has anyone else had this problem or anything similar?
its quite irritating because i miss important phone calls.
please contact me through email if you have a solution
I prefer w810i for mp3 player and everythin else, this phone is quite ugly......any 1 agree? good camera tho.....
Pretty impressive. Got it about about a month ago, and as a primarily phone/net user - as opposed to using the MP3 player or games - my pros and cons are:
1. Huge phone book capability (and the option to save any new number to a new/existing contact)
2. Pretty fast net (a lot faster with the miniopera browser - see the SE/Opera websites)
3. Love the easy-to-use bluetooth and voice-activated dialling (including "magic word")
4. Crisp photos, fast photo-sending
5. Easy-to-use synchronisation of contacts/calendar/etc to and from Outlook via SE's PC Suite (but oh, the drama of installing, then un- and reinstalling)
6. Great organiser: snooze function on tasks; multiple alarms; repeating appointments, etc
7. Simple, fast texting with plenty of useful features
8. SE's usual 2 x changable shortcuts (although the latter is sidelined once configured for Vodaphone Live)
9. Good strong ringtone volume - if you carry your mobile in your overcoat or handbag, you'll appreciate the importance of this.
1. Net chews up a lot of battery power (although my provider says this is unusual and is sending me a replacement handset)
2. Joystick is a bit sensitive
3. Not a lot of memory for voice activated-dialling contacts - could do with 4 x the amount provided
4. Would have liked a bigger screen
5. Having changed from a flip-phone, having to constantly lock, and unlock the keypad is frustrating - and the autolock fuction activates too quickly to be useful (and can't be adjusted)
6. Teeny weeny little keypad - guys will want to test it out for themselves before buying.
7. As with the Z520i, the camera is often activated accidently - same with the lens cover sliding open.
Hope this helps.
And SE people, if you're reading this, I would love a smart(flip)phone with a great big screen - cn you put it on the list?
Just wondering what people think of this as to a K750i? I have the 750i at the moment and feel its time to up-grade but I was looking at one of the K800's they seem a bit bigger, are they worth the upgrade?
Lost one sales, blame this phone?
pls enlighten me, I'm confused.
Btw, this is the best camera phone today..
If don't go for this phone, go for what?
cheers mark at nleast im not the only one but excluding that its a quality fone love it to bits cant really knock it my rugby mates love it
hey..i had used this phone for 3weeks..is was a good phone...worth to buy it!

yeah, i do that as well..it does cost a lot when it opens the wap.. i dont know, maybe i was one of the lucky guys to get a defective unit..
only probs i have is when i forget to lock it i accidently go on the wap it costs a bomb
i have had this phone for about three weeks now..love the pictures, and solid feel..but the number pad and joystick are starting to piss me off..i text a lot and hate having to back tack because the phone cant keep up with my fingers..and i think the joystick has a freakin mind of its own..keeps moving down by itself..
this is the phone i been waiting for..best camera 3.2 mp with xenon flash, but only work with low light,very stong and bright screen,,, otherwise its great phone, compare with nokia n80 the photo quality bit soft and very low grade, even with 3.2 mp, i also own the k750.2mp camera even that beter than nokia n80... sony rock again
Brought the phone for about 3 weeks, nothing wrong..
except for the bad video recording quality, this phone is worth buying
When I send sms or mms with my k800i, it's super fast. After using for 2 weeks, so far so good except for the keypad tone which is all the time silent mode even on the sound for a while (even replaced with 1 new set-same problem), it goes back to silent mode again later. I think probably it's the software problem, try download the latest software but new software not available yet. My current software cersion are CXC1250214 R1CB001 060608.
K800i has the best camera & flash quality on the market so far except the video is a bit disappointing. Battery life so so, I bought an original car charger so charge when the battery went low.
For those who worry the len cover will accidently easily open, suggest you buy the crystal case hard cover and the len cover are basically protected at the same time.
Before I switch back to k800i, I'm using the N73 and I said the built quality sonyericsson phones are better in the refinement. For N73 video, though is Mpeg4 format but it turn out also not very good even the carl zesis len don't produce excellent photos in dim place except bright open areas, the flash not strong enough as only good for very close range. I sold off my N73 and went back for Se phones as my n73 hanged often, the only I like for the phone is the dual stereo speakers effect for n73.
If you don't mind a good 2 mega camera phone, K750i is still the best 2 mega phone on the market today. Small & solid phone after all, K800i works more like a digicam with the xenon flash...
Different phones has its strength & weakness. No phone is perfect, it is up to you to define it... For me after using nokia phones for many years, change for a more refreshing se and no regret so far...
The message you are probably replying to, is not mine. My sole message was the one located exactly above my nickname (the one with the pockets and holes thing. Hehehe!). Maybe you (or anyone else) can try and help in that one! :)
Got the phone when it came out, been great. No problems. Video is a bit poor, photos are amazing. Just smashed the screan today so im having bother getting a replacement. O2 tried to fob me off with a nokia n91!! no comparison. only other small thing is the thickness of the phone. camera slide cover sticks out a bit and opens in your pocket, gonna have to get a carry case to protect it once its replaced!.
