Pros Camera, application potential, sleek design
Cons Button Layout, volume levels, camera quality isnt perfect.
Summary I got this phone for about $400 unlocked. I use it with Cingular service and it works just fine.
Since i consider myself still fairly young i'm all about asthetics. This phone looks great and performs on par too. The games that come shipped are the most advanced i've ever seen for a phone so that only means the potential for great applications to be developed and run. The 2MP camera is also an awesome feature. This instantly eliminates having to carry another camera for all those candid moments! I've seen some pictures from other people's phone that look great quality. I have to agree with the most part. It does outdoor natural lighting great. The white balance features really help, but if it isnt just perfect the pictures tend to be grainy. It may just be my inexperience with digital photography that incites these problems. The bluetooth capability is really good. I have successfully connected to my brother's Ipaq and another sony ericsson phone. The transfers work fast and flawless. The phone actually comes ready to be used as a remote for your PC as long as your PC has a bluetooth point. I have yet to use this feature but i plan to try it out soon. The radio and media player are fantastic. If i didnt already have an IPOD then i would use this as my main mp3 player since it supports Memory Stick Duos. The sound quality is very good and is capable of playing multiple formats. I've used mp3 and itune's .acc formats.
The cons are few. Since the phone is so compact the buttons are very close together and do not protrude. it makes for gaming somewhat difficult and frustrating. I try not to use the joystick too much for fear of how it can break. (This is based on highly abused show models) Like i stated earlier, the camera is great, but don't expect to replace any quality digital cameras you may have invested in or plan to invest in. One of the more disappointments with this phone is the volume levels on the ear piece. I noticed it right away that it was fairly low to what i was used to. I think you can naturally become accustomed to this, I actually turn down the earpiece volume sometimes. If it does become a bother the included handsfree headset should be more than loud enough. I turn those levels way down. A lesser downside is due to the fact that the phone is so new, there are very little accessories for it. I have been having a hardtime finding a suitable case. I'm sure this will change once people find out about the greatness of this phone.
I hope this review was ok, it was my first.
Pros 2MP camera, 262K display, functionality,
Cons No 3rd party accessories avail yet. Connection interface
Summary 8.5 out of 10 for several reasons but still outstanding. Got the phone for $350 US for a one Yr contract renewal. Phone is very clean, easy to get familiar and very functional. Earphone has to share with the charger input because of the new hish speed supposed to be connection interface(unacceptable, should have thought of installing at least a separate 3.5 jack), got to use one or the other. Screen is very bright, clean and clear. You can use animated gif as background(Very cool). MP3 ringtones(loud enough also). Everybody knows 2MP but it also includes a flash and can be use as a flashlight or does an SOS signal also. Excellent java games but a chess and card game would be nice. To keep the screen on excellent condition or scratch free, I used a PSP(playstation portable) protective filter and cut an exact screen size(just cut below the headset so you could still here the sound). If you like going to the GYM you can buy one of the IPOD mini Action Jacket armband(its almost perfect fit and has an access port for the earphone, you just need to modify/cut the circle section into kinda square to match with the phone). Software installation to the computer needs to be installed and uninstalled a few times to get it working, sometimes its a little moody. Syncs well with MS Outlook but not exactly perfect. I had a P900 SE for more than a year before getting this. Bluetooth works perfect w/ other devices. One last WARNING, somehow it has a weaker signal and I had some drop calls which I never had problem w/ my previous phone.
Pros expandable memory, very easy to use with a PC, out-ROKR's the ROKR, beautiful/speedy/intuitive OS, great reception, good battery life, Java apps run more smoothly than on other phones
Cons cant use radio w/out headset attached, average quality when shooting in low-light, excruciatingly slow shutter speed, wish it was as cool-looking as my old RAZR.
Summary Overall, this is an insanely capable and slick package. I used to have a T616 and am amazed that the K750i is almost exactly the same size, despite all the added functionality. This would easily merit a 10 out of 10 if it came in a flip-style phone and/or was as unique as something like the RAZR. it's not unattractive at all, but... hey, call me shallow, but if I spend $400 on a cell phone I'd prefer people not mistake it for a 3-year-old disposable/craptacular free phone.
I've owned the K750i for around two months now, I bought it to replace a RAZR that was stolen. My old phone drew lots of attention, but I always hated the clunky Motorola OS... once it was stolen I planned to get the black Razr; but instead ran across the K750i and was sold. I'm using it on Cingular in the Boston area and have generally had good reception-- I either get perfect call quality (90% of the time) or no signal whatsoever, as this phone doesn't have the 850 band.
It's a pleasure to use this phone. The quality of the camera is as good as it gets for phones, and the controls + versatility really make it seem as if you're using a standalone digital camera. The SE operating system has been great for a while now, but the version on this phone is faster and better-looking than anything they've had before. If you are a graphics person, it doesn't get better than this (PNG's and SVG's!). Java apps/games run the way they were meant to run, the phone has clearly got power to spare. (If you buy this phone, Google around for Opera Mini, its fantastic.)
I haven't used this very much for music, but it will play AAC's and MP3's off any Memory Stick Duo (try finding a 2 GB "itunes phone"?)... the built-in speaker is pretty decent (but obviously monaural). If you buy the HPM-70 attachment you can use any stereo headphones w/ a 3.5mm plug. I don't use the radio much at all because it won't function without a headset plugged in (uses it as an antenna). I would use it at work, except the built-in speaker is way too loud even on the lowest setting... there are some weird volume quirks between the radio, mp3 player, and phone, it's inconsistent to say the least.
conclusion-- near perfect and highly recommended. I buy lots of electronic toys and this just might be the coolest thing I've ever owned.
Pros screen, camera, camera, size, battery, cool,,
Cons none, except the 850 band would have been nice!
Summary this is a great phone, i have had it for 2 months and i can not praise it enough, in good to moderate light settings, indoor outdoor the camera rules, for dark pictures i am going to have to get the flash attachment because there is quite a bit of noise in darker settings... the macro pictures are by far the cameras major strength, there really is no way you can tell that it was taken by a phone. with pictures with some distance and moving targets the auto focus can be a bit iffy, but i am really amazed at some of the pics this phone takes... the battery lasts me 3 days, which is really good i think, my moto v600 and v635 barely would last 2.. hmmm what else oh yeah the ring tones are super loud, much louder then on my motorola phones, the radio sounds good, games play great except the keypad is a bit cramped and makes you hands cramped. the memory card is key, makes moving pictures and songs / ring tones effortless... i haven't had any problems with the phone so far, knock on wood. one thing that does bug me is the lens cover can slide open when you put the phone in your pocket.. there have been photo comparisons between this phone and the nokia N91 on some web site and you can see for your self when looking at the pictures the k750i pictures are better..
Pros 2MP Camera, Bluetooth, Memory Stick Pro Duo support up to 2gb
Cons Not 3G, but still great
Summary I bought this phone in the philipines for P17000 ($300 US) about a month ago(07/04/05).
This phone is wonderful. No glitches. Great camera quality. Great Reception. It comes with a USB cord so you dont have to worry about transfering photos to your computer and also transfering free themes to your phone. Battery life is great even with moderate talktime. If you are undecided on which phone to get put this phone on your top 3 list.
