OH NOT AGAIN. so what are you know a professional phone and camera critic who can command a big company like SE and tell them what they need to put in their phones? Sony have been manufacturing different electronics including camera for a long time and Ericsson has made a lot of phones already for how many years and they know what they're doing.
all the talents and brains of Sony Ericsson hold meetings not just for one day or one week to produce phones. it takes them number of months or even a year to plan something.
I'm not an SE fan but its crazy to hear people telling a company to put this or put that or remove this or remove than from a phone.
And ITS NOT ENOUGH to see pictures on the net and compare them as you dont know how the pictures are being uploaded on the web. you buy both K800i and N73 and take pictures yourself and compare them.
AND remember... this is a mobile phone and not a camera. so dont expect it will be super perfect because even pure digital cameras has flaws.
No hard feelings. ciao!
-i have seen K800i photos in esato and all i can say is:
k750 and other AF 2MP cameras are alot better in focusing than this one, it's because focusing is somewhat a bit out of focus which i cannot see in early autofocus camera of se like k750,w900,w810,w810 ones,.. (SE should take this as a warning that their camera phones needs more improvement in imaging and video department) and i don't think cybershot has that importance because it's just similar to standard SE camera interface(in k750,w800 and other 2mp) and the again, LED flash must be back and added together with xenon if possible(just like in LG 5MP phone)... i'm a lot disappointed in the defeat of k800i in focusing and i have proven this in my mind when i saw the photos in esato,and here... SE take more serious in your phones again, all 2mp phones must have autofocus in all series so more and more people will not be disappointed...
-the next imaging phone lines must have CCD sensor and higher ISO sensitivity for reducing blur(this was what i saw why K800 was beaten by N73 in focusing, before K750i has ISO 100, and now K800 has lower of ISO 80 only, this is ridiculous for me,.) never mind the carl-zeiss lens which makes over color saturation and overexposure(look at the keys in N73 photos in comparison to k800i)
-and, just like what SeFanatic and others said in other forum,.. do not remove important features like radio, LED flashlight, Autofocus,. those are very important in SE lineups, coz this is where people meets SE Quality very enormous
-again please help waking SE's Eyes with this happening
I just bought 3 k800s and 2 n80s
I like the fact that the k800 is not a slider because I am against slider fones well not really a fan of it BTW the k800i will beat the n80 anyday because to can take videos at the night time and you can leave the xenon flash on while recording videos its really cool.For the n80 not that good of a design no lens cover and ugly slider I would pick a d807 over a n80 because the n80 looks ugly in the back side from
N80 and K800i? Not a fair comparison, Nokia fan boy. K800i is not a smart phone unlike N80. As for myself, I dont use symbian or video recording , K800i is my choice over N80 anyday.
Anyway, just bought the phone few days ago, buggy problems but I am very happy with it so far.
wtf is wrong with this phone in singapore the price is dropping like mad can any1 tell me?
It is better than N80?! My foot!
i agree with ratings at the left of the page...
n80 is much better than this phone...
battery life of this phone is not so good.
reception is a bit of a problem along with sound reduction.
I am very much confused to get into a conclusion which mobile i want to buy...Heard k800 is creating s/w pblms is that true or just rumours
i purchased this phone from Dubai, UAE. This is the best phone I have ever used. Not really a big fan of non flip phones, but the features in this phone persuaded me to change my mind. Camera is awesome. excellent quality. Outstanding capabilities. no need to have a PDA, if you have this phone.
Nice camera, fast interface and design (front only)...
Back really quite ugly especially the len cover...
Battery cover very hard to open, no grip...
Overall, a good camera phone but still Digicamera rules...
samsung motorola nokia u are miles behind sony ericsson k800 super phone has every thing u want and need first class
THE SHARP 903 is still the best 3.2mp cameraphone in the UK!
This was the first 1st 3.2mp camera released in the UK. I am still shocked that it is still the best 3.2mp camera today. I have conpared it to the k800i and the only thing better on the k800i is the flash.
This phone takes better, clearer, more realistic pictures and videos than K800i, it also has a larger, higher resolution screen which twists around to be more like a real camera.
The sharp 903 also has 2x optical zoom. Another plus point for the sharp 903 is that it has a much better build quality and is that bit more harder to see on the street.
Sharp 903, The best camera phone in the UK. No question.
Great phone, great design. We all know that.
What we dont all know is the cheapest place to find a 1gb card.
The cheapest Ive found is £35 at mymemory.co.uk. Does anyone know of anywhere cheaper ?
anyone here have tried using this feature under messaging ("My Friends")? Ive tried using it for Yahoo using the server scs.msg.yahoo.com but didnt work.
i got this feckin cell phone off vodafone and what can i say best phone about at the min .no problems at all no freezing or nothing . brilliant cell phone.. pity they did not throw in a 1gb card..
A frend of mine works in a fone shop, he said he got word that SonyE r making a walkman edition of this fone with the same cybershot camera an all that jazz... haz any1q heard similar...?
fnnn... i got exactly the same opinion as you. Guess what? when the first official pictures appeared on the net, i decided not to even bother looking at the phone because it is way tooo ugly, close to unacceptable. It is the moment when i got the actual phone in my hand, then i totally change my opinion and fall in love with it ^_____^. Now i got it in my hand already. It is stunning, simply superb. No complaint watsoever, except the fact that the memory stick slot seems to be vulnerable to be broken and the camera lens started to catch some scratch.... I did my best to take care.
On my way back to phone shop fickin thing keeps freezing now its dead! My 750i never had these probs or is it 3's fault?
ric,u r sayin that when i video at night the flash will glow if set 2 automatic.but 'll it glow once like real camera flash as stated in the reviews or 'll it glow constantly?let me know.
This thing is freakin sexy!!!!Looks stunning! Absolutely awesome looking phone, great size, buttons are superb, so many of them! I love it!
My ebay seller threw in a screen protector which goes nicely and an extra battery which is about 1cm thinner... ???
Now for the downsides.. Laggy interface, only minor, and the headset thing.. well I had seen pictures that you can use your own headphones, that it was a lead with a 3.5mm or whatever it is socket for your own.. So stuck with SE earplus, but they have a mic and a button on the cord so thats nice.
But the actual phone is so amazingly stylish! Online images make it looks pretty ugly... but wow. It has a black and purple theme and it looks like the phone is made of brushed black steel! It has purple backlighting which looks amazing!
Yet to really get into it but so far, AMAZING!!
