Good day, well i am one of the biggest fan of Sony Ericsson and currently residing in UAE. K800 has a loophole in it in this region. I just bought it and kept for 2 days. SONY ERICSSON K800 DOES NOT WORK WITH ETISALAT's NEW SIM CARD. if you have an old sim car which is 3volts then its fine. if you want to buy a new sim card which Etisalat has launched it with 5volts then Sony ericsson does not support that SIM. I have confirmed it from Etisalat and then from AXIOM finally i had to give it back. This Cell is awesome i really don't see any other option but in this region i don't know when they will fix it. I hope people planning to buy it in UAE will keep this fact in mind before buying it.
Does anyone tell me why in different region
k800i have different memory ! some with no memory card (M2), another with 256 MB (M2) and another with 512 MB (M2) ! which of them is original one ,thanks .
Love this phone but is there anyway to use custom message tones? Standard ones are way too short.
This phone is Amazing!!. The Xenon flash make pictures at niht spotless. And you can play music or videos all day and it doesnt drain the battery that much. The K800i is rated the best cell phone of today and the camera phone of tomorrow. People say that the video isnt that good but its actually very decent. i recommend all the way!!
For those who need a torch light from the phone, simply buy a torch light...
Need a simple, fast responsive and a good camera phone-K800i
Need a versatile phone but don't mind slow and with a reasonable good camera phone-N70.
Need a good video phone-Nokia 6280.
Need a good walkman loud music phone-W550.
Difficult to find a phone with everything of the above.
I think this fone is not good. it got not so much nice features like n80. n80 got wifi and led so you can use as torch. i think people must get the n80 if they didn't yet get dis fone!
hay - i just being true!
K800i is the best phone in the world, but it has one minus:
Menu -> Calls -> Manage calls -> Accept calls -> Only from list, this functions is not working corectly: unknown numbers are always accespted.
No you cant use the flash as a light as it is a xenon flash not an led light
it is extremely hot if it was only a woman i wud definatly take a piece of and compared to the nokia n series they are out of its sexified league sonyericsson rocks
I got mine recently, and I was wondering if I can switch the flash as a flash light, or SOS signal cuz i know the K750i has this feature.
I have replaced my nokia6280 with the new SE K800i. The phone is excellent in one word. The music quality was not upto the expectations. in some of the wav files the clarity was too below the standards of SE phones. The camera and the flash quality is excellent. Video dj has its disadvantages cos onyl 3gp files can be utilised for remixing the tones.The back camera cover is of very cheap quality and there are mere chances of getting loose after some time.Very disappointing that SE don't provide a memory stick with the pack.Well any one looking for a good and compact camera phone.....its the best no competitor will stand to it.Its' Granted.
Image stabilizer works fine, but you have to read the manual in what mode it works.
I got this phone yesterday and LOVE IT! It's as everyone says - awesome camera... This is my first SE and I have found it really easy to pick up. I had a "smartphone" before but I think this phone is far better value and more practical. Everything is just great in this phone. My only concern is the cover over the lens, I am being very gentle just to make sure it lasts! If considering this phone IT IS AWESOME
the image stabilizer does not work with fotos..... only video..... is it normal or mine ha s defect... .:p very satisfied with the fone.....
i love k800's camera but i'll rather wait for another SE model with 3mp cam. maybe walkman(bec. walkmans have more lovely design) phone but hoping it will have autofocus like this has...
h3 you are damn right,btw the features are new and very good(other phones dosen't have it,on camera and off the camera),the upgrade part it's interesting.
I hope that a new firmware it's gonna come up and resolve all the problems,because SE dosen't have many bugs(like w800).
well, i have the same hype with you guys when the k750 first came out, but there are things about SE: I bought that phone as soon as it was released and a month later the price dropped like $100 so it's not worth anything then. I admit that SE camera are better than Nokia's, i owned k750 and N90 at the same time so i know this, however i don't think that a phone with a great camera should be nominated as the best phone of the year..that is just too much. And please enough of comparing Nokia to SE because both have different target market, Nokia for the stylish ones and SE for the value-minded ones. Just keep it fair guys ^^
For me i personally won't fall for another SE except p990 even though i know how great K800 camera is, but the other features don't seem to be that satisfying.
