Phone has just arrived, just recharging it now, first impressions r very good. the build and look of the phone is excellant! keypad feels nice too.
For anyone who ordered from O2, i ordered this phone on thursday and it did arrive within the two days that i was told it would arrive within. hope this gives you faith in o2.
For pics of the brown and black version go to www.forum2.mobile-review.com
Does anybody know what the bundled memory is with k800i on O2 in the UK??
Things I like on K800i
(note: Im using a prototype unit)
The camera is great with an additional xenon flash that really helps a lot at night usually in a bar or in party. The LED photolight of other camphones is way behind the xenon flash.
Added bonus are 3G capable, excellent music player, 64mb internal memory (1Gb Micro Memory stick cost me about 80USD)
So, if you frequently take pictures in places with low light conditions then absolutely go for the k800. Even the n93 can't beat the flash of k800 as n93 only uses LED photolight.
waaaa i wish a flip phone with the cyber shot brand would be produce! that is the same size like sh903! and rotating LCD! ooo pls! I beg U se to just copy sh903 or 902! then u'll sure beat nokia with those flip phones! hahaha
Many people say they got one but for all i know,they don,t know it's price. Are they tellin' us true? for me, 8,s the color that matters!
for all filipinos (interested only)
all who are owners of this k800 who wants to swap(or buy) with my N80(a month old) with waranty from globe txt me 09178212284
Original date for t-mobile was 1st july but they quotin beginning of the month now no specific date. They will probably end up putting it back loads like they usually do!
@ james- I don't know the price to buy the handset on its own but its £50 to upgrade or new contract on o2
I have the N80 and it was the worst decision ever- it is rubbish, the sliding mechanism dnt work very well and it keeps opening when i put it in my pocket- the features aint very good either, typin on it is terrible- people my advice to u is GET THE K800i- regardless how much u get messed around by o2- dont penalise urselves by making do with another phone, this phone is the dogs B******s I'm waiting on mine now but ive used one before, its well worth the wait- i promise u
IT'S SIMPLE...if you care about a camera have the K800... if you want a smart phone have the N80...but it's pants... sent mine back!!!
I think that k800 is the best phone on earth if you want to take serious pictures..
This is a highly over r8ed phone. Ppl onli want this phone for its camera quality, which to be honest isnt n e thing special. Yeah its 3.2 mp, but the only time u will ever see the difference in quality is if you print your pictures ON A DIGITAL CAMERA PRINTER. Also at the end of the day what can the k800i do that the k750i cant? I still think SE cant beat the K750i
Well i picked my new K800i Up yesterday, On the 3 Network, rather good phone, just updated version of the K750I and you can notice the picture quality, But Does some one now how to Remove the Planet 3 Active Banner off my Screen or is it embedded?
Just a quick review on the first impressions of my k800i.
CALLS...Very clear, no problems.
FINNISH...Very impressive, strong and sturdy, the keypad is slightly rubberised but still very good and feels responsive. The front is finnished in a brushed steal effect and the back has a velvety rubbery feel to it.
SCREEN...Fantastic!..very bright and clear and quite big, about 4 or 5mm bigger than the k750/w8ooi type.
CAMERA...Wow! brilliant looking results so far, only used it with everything set on the auto mode but for most people that is all you will need, for the more advanced photographers there is a whole host of options.
VIDEO...Yes it's true!..it's probibly only slightly better than the k750/w8ooi if not the same, but it still looks good in full screen playback and large screen.
MUSIC...Very good, as good as my mates W800i and way better than my outgoing D500, a very meaty sound and loud.
TO USE...Having never owned a SE before, i was amazed how easy it was for me to pick things up with this phone, the menu system seems to have been well thought out and have a logical feel to it.
STYLE...For me SE have got this phone just right,sophisticated and stylish to look at. Not a big fan of the white phones of this world or the big and bulky and odd looking nokia's that seem to just keep coming out.
CONCLUSION...Just about 10 out 10 in every area for me, probibly only thing that i would have expected, was a better video quality like the 30fps that some phone's have, but it still looks ok in full screen playback. Overall 9.5 /10 well done!!
Still using the SE K800i and the battery seems good till now, but will give my final judgement after i use it for a couple of days so
that i can be fair and accuarte in my judgement.
You might be right about picture compression, but that does not change the fact that pictures taken with my Nokia N80 in landscape mode were BETTER than pictures taken with the same settings
on my Sony Ericsson K800i. I have tried again and again and compared pictures from both phones and N80 wins in
landscape mode, but SE K800i wins in Macro mode, i have nothing against SE i am just telling my own experience and
i wish i was wrong, thus i am very disappointed in SE K800i.
Yes my settings are dual mode but the WiFi is only on on/need, and yes i have tried before switching to the GSM mode only, and
yes the battery life is longer but still not that much of a difference maybe only 30% increase in operating time when in GSM only mode.
Just wished that the battery life would be better, hoping that the upcoming Nokia N83 will correct these problems.
