At the time of it's release I was really disappointed of the lack of UMTS. For a phone THIS high end, it would have made a lot of sense.
I still use the S700 (June 2016).
We use it to test SIM cards for our GPS trackers.
It's used weekly for an hour or so.
The battery lasts 2 months or more !
Great phone, just dated now with only 2G and poor camera.
(2G is what we are testing)
You won't believe it, but i still use this phone, after loosing my iphone 3gs 2 years ago... it's like a punishment for my neglect but it's realy a remarkable phone! By the way i changed it's battery last year and now it performes 100%!
One of the best that I ever used. Still inlove with this but no one is really selling anymore. I made a mistake of selling mine for Treo... sucks!
bought this phone in 2005 but the battery gave up on me last 2009. I still have it and it still works but a fully charged battery will only stay working for less than an hour :)
I would still love to use it. It really has the solid build and the camera is really great. Even with just 1.3mp, the pictures taken were fantastic. However, the case looks worn out already. The flaps for the SD card and charging port have fallen off. And the silver finish/paint has peeled off on most areas. I dunno if this can still be repainted.
Yeah it's 2013, I bought my SonyEricsson S700i in november 2004 and I've never stopped using it. Other phones come and go but I keep this one, still using the original battery. What's so good? Camera is fast to use and many times better than newer with lots of megapixels. Sound is great, i often put the music on from the phone in the morning and it fills up the room. I used to be able to see all websites on that phone. I downloaded over 100 games, it was great with java. Bluetooth is easy and fast. It has everything. Still use it as extra phone, the alarm wakes me up every morning, cuz new phones can't be trusted to wake me up.
i just recharge my s700i it was 6 year now in one box into the garage and i find it yesterday!! still work perfect
