YAY! Finally got my new mobile phone after spending about 3-4 years with my Motorola C330(my dad bought it for me) and I’m proud to say that I didn’t ask my parents for any money for it and no credit card used. I bought it with my own money, cash and carry!!! Bought it last Friday.
I know.. I know… Sony Ericsson K800i is old already, it’s not new model. I don’t care. There is no point to buy K810i at all. The difference is just the design. The functionalities are all the same. By the way, this is an AP set, not original. I’m not willing to invest few more hundreds to get original though original is good, it’s out of my budget.
I’ll do a little review in this post about the phone. I’m not a very techie person(not anymore but used to hahaha…) so I’m not going to use too much jargons.
The view of the phone. See the “vodafone” label there, also the buttons that are kinda different from the original one? The label is supposed to be “K800i” and the buttons on the two sides shouldn’t be printed with red and green receiver icon. It’s AP set, that’s why it’s different but the functions of the buttons are totally the same as the original one. The left button(green receiver icon) is to access the Internet and the right one(red receiver icon) is to access “My shortcuts”. You answer your call with the top left button.
Actually, I can add on some money to get the one without “vodafone” label and it’s brown in colour, also AP set. As stingy as I could be, I’m unwilling to fork out that extra Ringgits 😛 That’s why I ended up with this black one with “vodafone” label.
The down side of this phone is it can’t stay flat on the surface because of the camera cover. K810i has the camera cover embeded inside and it can stay flat on the surface, this is the only difference according to all my mobile phone “specialists”(my brother and my friends) :P, since I’m jinxed, I don’t find my own phone hahaha… I gave my “specialists” the requirements and these “specialists” did their research and handed me the final report and I made the final decision *LOL*. That’s why I don’t see the point of buying this new model and opt for the older model, K800i. I haven’t remove the protector film of the camera cover, if it’s removed, sooner or later the camera cover will be scratched and it’s no longer nice anymore. That’s the down side. Sigh… However, can save some money, I shouldn’t be complaining much 😛
The camera cover that I mentioned.
Left: This phone uses M2. I was given a free 64MB M2. The phone itself has internal memory of 64MB.
Right(top): The on/off button.
Left(bottom): This is where you plug your cable either for charging or file transfer. While you transfer files into your computer, it will charge your phone at the same time using the power supply from your computer. When you plug it in, the phone will auto turn off and auto turn on to prepare for file transfer. Then when you remove from your computer, it will auto turn off and turn on after that.
Here’s the photo taken with K800i and Canon Ixus i zoom without flash. The colour isn’t that nice with the phone but it has auto-focus, this is the part which I like. See the photo below, it’s taken with K800i without flash and with not so steady hand. If it’s using my camera, you won’t be able to see anything but blur and shaky image.
Hmm… That’s all I can say. So far, I haven’t encounter any problem. Forget to mention that this is a 3G phone too.
