SE K800 is merely an upgrade of SE K750 in the Following manner:
- Former had 2.0 MP Camera where as the latter posseses 3.2 MP.
- K750 is just a GSM Phone but K800 is 3G with UTMS support.
- K750 has screen resolution of 176x220 Pixels where has K800 is enriched with 320x240 Pixels resolution.
- K750 lacked multiple tasking where as K800 allows users to keep working with multiple applications at the same time.
- K750 Music Player was an upgrade of the one already embeded in SE's best selling market giant K700 where as K800 has been enriched with the Music Player from "W" series mobile phones.
- K750 had PRO DOU Memory Stick but K800 brings a reduced size Memory card M2.
Apart from the aforesaid key differences, both are one and the same things except with diffrent weight and a bit changes in the phone dimensions which is not much considerable.
Here the point of concern is not as to how much difficult it should be for the users to decide to go for any of these both phones rather it is very easy as a matter of fact. Differences are very minutes and negligible except for the Enhanced Camera Resolution and the Multiple tasking feature in K800 which in my opinion shall not be of much concern for the normal users. As far as the picture quality as an ultimate out put is concerned, both have the same quality except the end user gets more vivid colors as an output with the print out in more large size. But the real dilemma comes when a Potential users wants somehow real upgrade in their current handsets. This way this phones regrettably fails to bring any innovation. One finds nothing in terms of technological boost, no change in the User Interface, the phone still lacks support for viewing the documents, no compatibility with the third party applications (We can't even expect this if talk about the "Tools" etc. This way the phone completely loses to Nokia N73 except we expect K800 offering a very few stability problems and due to Symbion's latest version, still it may have certain issues in this regard but still those shall not be of that much worth to stop someone really looking for any comprehensive, solid and compact device offering more business conveniences. To cut a long story short, this shall very useful handset with a very good camera for those who seldomnly think about the aspects which have been mentioned above but for those who really need to change their cell phone due to some solid technological upgrades should never prefer this set as this is just a multimedia mobile phone offering very limited business solution.
i've send an email in which i complain about the fact that they have stripped out the mega bass function.
do you think the'll do something?? LOL:)) i think they won't give a damn.
I liked it a lot but i think p990 is somthing else! its been 6 months that im wating for it to come!
wow, this phone is finally out!
i've read the review of this phone, the camera is good! but there's nothing really new with it, i find this fone like an upgraded k750i, still a good phone though.. i think the direct competitor of K800i is the N73 buti think the latter is better bcoz of the overall performance, features & design.
anyway,it's good they improved the screen and put xenon flash but they should have changed the design coz its just the same like their previous models(K750,k600).
overall i give this phone 8/10! ;)
i saw it today, what a deception, once i got my hands on it restarted and the white screen of dead appear, SE tried to pull this out quickly to compete with the 6233.
it design as i predicted its a black box resembling the k750i
yep its not walkman no megabass, which made some songs not nice, the headset volume its the same as the w600, which its low compared to the ipod or the n91.
the camera quality its awesome!!! just QCIF video recording its just a SHAME.
it doesn't work with office documents, (nokia m73, 6233 can)
you have to choose between EDGE and 3G
its 250 euros more expensive than the k750? just for a megapixel more, the megabass removed and a 0.2 bigger screen (it was 1.8' now its 2')
Does this phone play videos on full screen or not , If no then this phone is a mistake by SE , If yes then this is amazing piece of creativity and i am surely gonna buy this one
Any one who knows it pls help me ?, i am too consious on that part.
does anyone know weather this phone package include any free memory card?
If 1900 MHz UMTS networks ever roll out in North America, will this phone support it, given that it can already do 2G on that band? Or will this phone only ever support 2100 MHz 3G Networks in Europe and Asia?
anyone knows if this phone has the Megabass and built-in hands free function? also how much is this phone. tnhanks
andrey i can see that you don't know a single thing about cameras and lesens
if you dident know thare are slr cameras(profesional cameras)that use cmos sensors
the r1 http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/sony/dsc_r1-review/index.shtml camera that hase the best sensor hase cmos
canon uses very ofeten cmos sensor and many more brands use cmos sensors in there profesional line up
you know what this phone misses?? CCD camera instead of cmos.. and bigger lens. it's a rather big phone it would of suited it very good it would be perfect. Samsung z710 has a 3.1 ccd camera but bad flash an small lneses
OMG, it's AMAZING! I really love my K800!!! Nice and cheap phone, the greatest features, and the best camera ever!!!! I'm enjoying this handset so much!!
wow! its out and so soon i cant beleive it but never the less i will wait and see before making any decision on buying i will wait and see cuz i hear tht the ppl at SE have removed the mega bass option which was a part of the K750 and offered gr8 sound quality and also apart frm 3g and 3.2mp camera its almost the same as the k750 which i already have,well i will wait and make a final decision wether to buy this or the w850 when it comes out cuz there also another problem with the k800 and tht is the use of joystick which leads to alot of problems later as we have all witnessed frm k700,k500,k300 and so on.
K800i is too expensive just for 3.2MP that all nothing much diffrence than K750i against price of 6o% more.Records video in ancient QCIF (176 x 144 pixels) resolution only not even full screen,terible.
Micro™ (M2™) card type is still very new and unpopular.Just wait when W850 is out both of these function be updated.Even the video resoltn of Nokia 6280 is far better n 640x480 format.Lastly the hype has gone and even Themes r same of K750i plus brick like appearance ad daily charge batt-------
Sony Ericsson have let the K800i down regaurding the video quality on the K800i an it seems this will or might deter me from keeping the mobile when i recieve it soon,just got the WHAT MOBILE magazine an they have done a review of the Nokia N73 that seems to be on par or better than the K800i,the K800i might win with the flash on its camera but the N73 wins with recording pixels,so it will be make mind up time now i have read both reviews on each mobile an its going to be difficult not just for me or any one which one to get
pretty good cam but looks like a brick and has crappy video. it's like the candy bar N91!
oh and btw memory stick micro = blue-pay = ps3 = Phailure!!!
all you sad nokia freaks, in your sad little nokia world! SE K800i Rules!!...it's not big, only slightly bigger than the 750i and it looks very classy with it's velvet black and chrome grills. At least it doesn't look like a wedge, like the n91 and it will work properly unlike the nokia's
