hi, got SE v600i for my birthday on contract from Vodaphone, lasted a couple of day's then overheated ! Went from a full charge to empty in hour's and phone was realy hot. Got phone changed for another v600i which developed a software problem with the volume. Received my 3rd v600i which lasted about 6 hours then overheated like my 1st phone! I am now waiting delivery of SE v800i phone that i hope will be better than what i have experienced with their v600i. Not bad going for 1 month, thanks Sony Ericsson !!
i think sony ericsson v600i is very good but the memory slot is not enough to users use when they wanted more so.....
i've just upgraded to the SE v600i from a samsung D500, even though i loved the d500 but the sony ericsson is fantastic i've been off sick so i've had plenty of time to explore it. it's the first SE i've had and i'm very impressed
Not sure if it's just my phone, but the battery needs recharging every second day. It is almost flat one and a half days after being fully charged. My old motorola lasted 4 to 5 days with the same aount of call time. What's going on?
Im reviewer as below, another thing i forgot to mention is that there is hardly any ringtones on the phone, and both games are only demo's. But still, £100 for all this phone is excellent!
Phone is excellent, looks great, battery life is not bad (but not the best), has so many cool features such as 3d gaming, FM radio, media player etc. Camera is good, but at night, even with the light, not very clear (but who cares for £100). Only issue is that of the memory. Why only put 32mb in and not let you expand it? The phone would be perfection if only they put more memory in it. However, for £100, its a bargain, and the only difference between this and the k600i is that it looks much better, its cheaper and its only available on vodafone.
this phone is crazy love it only thing i could hate about ericssons is that when it rings its not that loud
Just ordered one of these things after a slight issue with losing an older phone - total cost from Vodafone UK? £15 and delivered tomorrow. That'll do.
However, I have just read this thread and feel I have to make a few comments.
1. How is poor 3G coverage a fault of the v600i? Answer - it isn't. I've had a 3G phone since Vodafone first offered them and coverage has got progressively MUCH better country wide. At first, I could use 3G in various city centres and that was it; now I get 3G coverage pretty much everyway I go where I'm likely to need/use it. Granted an actual 3G connection is somewhat dependant upon the handset but the coverage is more important. No coverage = no 3G bars.
2. The argument of "this is a modern device and therefore I want my phone, camera, toaster and sink in the same case" is laughable. I'm a semi-pro photographer and the day a cheap gizmo replaces my camera gear is the day when the devil will use ice skates to get to his office. Not in my lifetime will a phone EVER replace the equipment I use. The fact of the matter is, no matter who makes them, cameras in camera-phones are DIRE and more megapixels will make it worse! I have lenses worth more than the phone, the contract price and the cost of the phone calls and data all put together for the last 3 or 4 years and you want me to believe I can use a phone to replace gear like that?! LOL!!! I presume NASA have already sent these S-Es, Sharps and what-nots with their "awesome" photos up in a Space Shuttle to replace Hubble then......
3. How many of those complaining actually, er, *own* a v600i and are no just folk that are fans of a particular make of phone wanting to "bad mouth" any competition irrespective of the fact they've probably never seen one let alone use one. In my experience of various message boards for various topics, those who moan loudest have absolutely no experience of the thing they're moaning about.
4. Why the devil does the look of the phone matter. Person A hates it, Person B likes it, Person C uses it as, stone the crows, a phone. It's personal taste! Some like BMWs, some like Mercs - it doesn't mean it's a poor phone just because you don't like it. A previous phone was a 6630, now, it's not the most stylish phone but I quite like it and I used it. I quite like the overall look of the v600i and I'll use it how S-E intended. Probably. If you're more bothered about showing off with it down the pub (or wherever it is that you want to show it off just before some youth decides he wants it as his phone - after all, you've just been doing the job of S-E/Nokia/Motorola marketing) maybe looking at one of these platinum and diamond rip-offs is for you...
got this fone a week ago and think its good for the price of £100. volume is great (exept of downloaded vids which is ok)the memory is good for 4 full mp3's and lots of vids and games battery is also good for a 3G fone. The only downside of the fone is the camera quality which is ok but not as good as other fones, but the video is of good quality when its on the right setting.
I have just bought the v600i and the camera picture quality seems really poor,do i have it on wrong settings or something?i also have a sharp gx20 and the quality is superb but this is only a vga camera!and the v600i is 1.3mega pixel so i dont understand it!!can anyone help??thanks
How do i check what firmware i have on the V600 ? and whats the latest Sony Ericsson V600 firmware
lovro, i think what you have done is just deleted the song from your playlist. you need to go to MY ITEMS-SOUNDS-AND THEN DELETE. Hope that helps
oh right sorry jnr,fairly sure that u cant do that , youll just have to point the normal camer at yourself
i got this phone and i think its great, it has everything you'd ever need! MP3, Video, photos, voice activation etc. what more could one ask for??? Stylish design? perhaps it could look a little nicer, but all in all it a good phone, with no problems so far and a nice menu system to boot!
help me !! have put software that came with the phone on my pc can i transfer music from the pc to the v600i media player if so how , tried once got it on the phone but it would only let me send the song but wouldnt let me listen to it
DONT buy this phone! is built from really cheap materials and feels horrible, as soon as i opened the box my heart sank. after a few months all the cheap silver finish will start to ware away. The menu system is fast but texting is really really slow as the buttons are slow to respond. A good phone for PAYT but not for contract users.
