Normal people will buy this phone... people who look for "quality and better characteristics" choose phones running real operating systems like Windows Mobile or Symbian. Only different from this and other SE phones at the price range is the camera. Not even the design is unique. Yes, it looks good but it looks average and looks like all the other SE phones with very similar design.
n73 looks like a better choice. both phones have interesting design but SE its looks like a plain black box as gsmarena first look review said... while n73 looks more shiny because of the stainless steel, screen is bigger, and it have edge and utms.
k750i was a very superb camera phone. and k800 must surpass its decendants. i dont have this phone but planning to get one. my k750i still meeting my expectations. may i raise a question : does this k800 have a tv out like the k750 i rival, the samsung d600.
To Gagbag. Only the K790a will be available in Canada not the k800. I think it's better you buy it from ebay.
Z710 beats K800 in display & in the design category handsdown..their features are almost identical, neither handset can claim huge advantage over the othere..SE K800 to have a better camera, better bluetooth, better mp3, but samsung is a better phone.. SE puts too much attention on camera & music functionalities, but "normal" people wont buy a phone becoz of that..they buy a phone because it looks good & can do a lot of other things..hey tarantula, even if u put those 2 handsets side by side & ask the people which is a better handset, Samsung Z710 will be their choice..Y?becoz it's a "BORING" handset with exagerrated features & while Z710 is good-looking hadset with nice features!by d way, I had K750i b4 and the joystick screwed up after a few weeks!see, SE focuses on features other than the hardware!how can u operate the K800 when your joystick doesnt work!
the time taht nokia make beautifeul fhones is OVER!sony ericson RULEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
I had a T610 and actually have W800 and joystick problems never present for me in both phones. maybe is a problem with thumbs like sefreak says... its hilarious
Just wondering whats going on with the boring erricson design department. I see too many similarities between the V630, k790, k800, k750. UUUUUURRRRRR sorry for my yawning but it just all looks the same to me. Do they think we are are suckers. It must be hard being in the catch up business these days behind Nokia and Samsung maybe the expense/finacial loss of the Playstation 3 has had a significant impact on the expenditure for its mobile phone sector------design department needs a futureistic kick up the perverbial. Sony today, nokia tomorrow....end of story.
Vodafone have now chnaged there release date of the K800i now to TBA from the 7th july!! typical vodafone, can never give a exact release date! and i work for them!
allegedly out on orange on the 1st july. seems like the smart choice. and no i dont work for them
hi can anyone tell me whether there is phone security lock in this model through which i can lock my phone preventing any misuse, like locking inbox, pic gallery?
Vodafone are the worst! A couple of months ago they were forced to admit the were in £28 billion of debt! The highest debt ever by a company in Europe! O2 are the second largest mobile provider in the UK and are marking profit because their business strategy is very good. They release most phones sooner than any other network and offer some of the cheapest tariffs and, no, I dont work for them!
vodafone have this fone released on monday,02 are finished and in trouble like 3 n t mobile GAME OVER,have it on vodafone or wait till out on orange as the other networks are small timers NOTHING
Just pre-orded for the K800 an i can"t wait to see an use it,the K750i was a superb phone by Sony Ericsson that got there confidence going again having made unreliable phones before,its the joystick i want to check out because the K750i was not easy to use plus dust would get round it so easy,if its not improved by Sony Ericsson then i will return it,an they will have to get it change to get people buying there phones again ,
The time that Nokia made beautiful phones is OVER! Now Sony Ericsson and Samsung rule the planet! Not only with their look but also technical!
