This is a great phone. No doubt about that. I wanted the SE Z1010, tried an import but it had a few bug problems, so back it went.
This is supposed to be the upgrade and in many ways it is. Similar but different. The keys are fantastic - v. sexy. The functions are great - 3g, mp3s as ringtones, nice installed ringtones (including a normal sounding phone!), calendar alarm. A good camera, although not as good as the s700i. A good range of effects, particularly frames to your photos, which will probably delight anyone under 15. No probs downloading by bluetooth or sending stuff. No bugs as yet or cut offs etc.
Nice games - have downloaded trivial pursuit all though its a bit short on questions. And a flash light.
The only thing I'm not too keen on (apart from the price!) is:
(1) not sure about outer case. The black plastic leaves me a bit undecided. I would have preferred an all mental case. I sometimes wonder if it looks a bit tacky, but other people say it looks great.
(2) Vodaphone branding on the outside makes the cover look too 'busy' and less stylish. Bt of a home goal with that one, Vodaphone.
(3) I dont think the speaker is as good as the z1010. The Mp3 ringtones sound a bit fuzzy. Like a radio station from Algeria. Not sure if that is the phone or just where the technology is at the moment????
(4) The nice external screen doesn't have caller id photo, when I thought SE said it did.
why still no wi-fi? SE still not opening their eyes and see what ppl wants.

I find it great and very interesting to buy, but how much does V800 costs?Thank u.
Emm, actually can't say this phone is a nice phone, don know how to describe my feeling, just feel that the design got something wrong lah....anywhere, SE u try your best & i will support u 4ever.
My brother got it .. Its great phone. But the voice volume still low (as all SE).
You are right Razi, 90% of the brilliant applications will not work there,I know I work for O2 technical team called MIST. I myself from Lahore took a XDA2s there, and apart from the voice and SMS fuctions nothing else worked!shame! as picturs messaging would be a great income earner for the Mobilink or Paktel networks there. ps Ufone GPRS and MMS is rubbish, it does not work.!customer care is terrible there!rubbish!they have no idea about technology and what they are takling about!
where VODOFONE leaf there are manic v800??????????????????????????????? mad abbout
Well, I have had a play with V800 and I can say this is the phone. I called at Voda’s shop and had a long chat with the sale rep, she was very helpful. After I had a look at the phone, she gave it to me to test. The main keys feel good, it is light but well made, the screen is really beautiful
I ran through some of the menus, there’s some much to re learn over my old Nokia 6210. Then I ran the camera, this was on video and stills, The rep, should me how to run a live down load, it just goes on. There is only one thing I do not like, but can live with once the phone comes out as sim free. Sony Memory stick, I would like SD. In the sim free mode, It would be difficult to access 3G, but GPRS and 2.5 GSM will do. Cost: there are two tariffs 500 or 1000 minutes. At 500 you pay £40 per month and at 1000 you pay £60 per month plus the phone. That’s 40 * 12 contract = £480 plus £150 = £630 The cost goes up once you use up your time and cross network calls cost a lot. That is to expensive for me.
