Well, I finally put a $100 deposit down on this phone and should have it in my hands on Wednesday (08/22/07).
- I'm gonna end up paying about $180 Canadian after tax ($420 retail -$100 deposit -$160 on a 3yr contract). I live in Vancouver, BC.
- I have a Sony DSC-T5 (5MP digi-cam), but don't feel like carrying it around all the time, and figured the 3MP phone will be a fine replacement.
- I was choosing between either the SE K800, SE K810, or the Samsung u600.
==From my own research==
- SE.K800 is a little bulky for me, and there were some minor Joystick problems
- SE.K810 has a longer battery life, and updated software,and updated/slim body casing despite being the "same" as the SE.K800.
- Samsung.U600 has superior video recording quality over the SE.K800/K810, but same picture quality.
- Samsung.U600 has horrible battery life (must recharge every 1.5~2 days)
**This is my opinion through my own research/reading up on reviews and posts
NoS - you reall have to be subjective on the interweb. Reviews can be false, companies can bully websites into giving products high reviews or else cut them off from corporate sponsorship or demo-units (game review sites get this kind of bullying from companies all the time). As far as calling names on the internet, it just goes to show your maturity. Try putting "In my opinion...." into your posts, and I'm sure you wont get flamed as much.
I'm sure the SE.K800 may be a good handset, but the bulky/buldging casing (camera lense) was a huge turn-off for me, hense why I decided to get the K810. As far as the circular buttons go, I'll get used to it after a week or so. I didn't bother with the Samsung.U600 as soon as I heard/read the battery-life was a measely 1.5days. I'm not much concerned about the loudness of the K810 as my currently phone is usually set to vibrate most of the time and only turned on as my secondary alarm-clock when I goto bed. I've got my 80gig iPod as my Jukebox, so I'll only put ringtone MP3s onto the phone anyways, so music use won't be much of an issue with me also.
Well, I don't even have the phone yet, but I'm stoked. I'll probably end up posting my initial thoughts once I get the phone, and then again a little after the "new toy excitement" feeling wears off. Feel free to ask me questions about the phone, and I'll try to answer as best as I can. I believe I'll be getting a 512M M2 card, so don't ask me 'will it hold a 2gb/4gb memory card?'.
Hey everyone...i wans't sure which phone to buy but now im determend to buy k810i today =) i just have couple of questions that has already been taken but anyways...whats about the sound? i know its softer than K800 but is it ok for listening or...? the second question is about the keys...there was a lot of difrent opinions... one say they're 2 hard 2 small not close enough the others are just loving it...it's confusing me =) and aloso can some 1 explain whats with the blue lights when in camera mode? thanks for anwsers =)
Elow everyone... Just wanna know if where can I find an upgrade for this software? Can anyone tell me a website or something? tnx.
waste keypad ...
must rock with a stone
having much facilities to this ..but a very hard keypad never expected so.....cant use easily for messages..
yo... i love this phone now. but i never was a fan of joystick phones.. is this one any better than, say, the 6020 joystick?
can someone tell me ehats the use of Wi-Fi?? does any of the SE mobile has that option??
i liked K810i and N73basic. but i am confused now..kindly advice
no, ti doesn't show which mobile is better.
what do you think: is it SE K770 better than SE K810?
people rated K770 as a better mobile than K810.
i think it's not, K810 is way better.
i, mean, K770 isn't better in 1 thing from K810. actually, K810 has more options, more memory, you can talk longer...
i was saying that it doesn't matter how does people rank mobiles... well, ranking doesn't mean anything.
and 1 more thing: look how many K810 has got VOTES, and look how many K800 has got VOTES!
K800 has got 4 times more votes than K810, and that's because it's older so people couldn't vote 4 K810, 'cause it wasn't out 4 sale whan the K800 was!
K800i has better ranking than K810i, 8.0 8.1 8.2 compared to 7.8 7.8 7.9! That show which mobile phone is better.
This phone is completly awsome!! the pics on it are far better than anything ive seen printed out (including the n95) which basically means i can get great photos of me and my pals on nights out and whatnot.
the buttons are alot easier to use than the k800i and the design and feel of the phone is way better than the k800 aswell.
i love it and think it may just be the best phone on the market at the moment. like the look of the w580i and looking forward to the g800 to see what that can bring to the mix.
hi friends,two days b4 i buy k810i,i am satisdied with all the features that the phone have,
but i want to know,if the flash is work with video or not?bcoz the flash is cant able to ON while taking video,
anybody having the solution for my problem,pls send me a mail to
'firstname.lastname@example.org' or 'email@example.com'
why the heck is SE K770i rated more than SE K810i??!!
this mobile is way better than K770i.
it dependes... it's about 450$, i think, when i calculated from my money (kn) to $... so i'm not shore...
the k810 is only $50 more than the k790. and i really hate how cramped the k790 keypad is...but anyway if youre choices are the k790 or the w580 i'd go with the k790 atm and thats only because the w580/s500 are having keypad problems(they're cracking) if youre not in a rush id suggest waiting and seeing what others say. if it is ok it would then depend on what you need.
the w580 is a much sleeker phone but the k790 has a much better camera. if youre just gonna take occasinal snaps go w580 if you want a camera replacement get the k790
Just purchased mine three days ago as a replacement for a k800i I water damaged. Excellent phone. Feels alot more comfortable and solid than k800i. Love the photofix feature. Software also seems more response when using a 1gb Card than my k800i did. Battery life substantially better
But K800i has better contrast and better such rated colors in camera photos than k810i!
i had a sony ericson k800i which was no working because my whole software was crashed for no reason. I could not exchange or replace it (as the k800i users know that this phone can only be changed or replace within 21 days 28 days in some countries). Now i have a nokia n73 which is a good phone but freezes a lot. My question is that has sony erricson k810 has a better software than the k800i.Plz reply me as soon as possible. U can also reply me on firstname.lastname@example.org...thx
