Sony Ericsson K530i Review
In a nutshell: A lightweight 3G phone with a classic design,
user-friendly keypad and a good range of features, including a 2 megapixel
camera, a music player, an FM radio, and a memory card slot.
Review: November 2007.
The Sony Ericsson K530i is an attractive mid-range 3G phone available
in a choice of Thunder Black or Warm Silver. The specification and design
of the K530i is almost exactly the same as the Sony Ericsson W660i,
and so we would refer you to our in-depth
review of the W660i to read more. Really the only differences between
the K530i and the W660i are that the K530i is not Walkman-branded (but
it still has a music player and FM radio) and is missing the MegaBass
You may read on the web that the K530i is also the first phone to support
Sony Ericsson's new GPS accessory, the HGE-100. The HGE-100 looks like
a wired stereo headset, but also incorporates a GPS receiver. This lets
you find your current location, monitor your speed, distance, route
and calorie burn, and also control the music player on your phone. However,
the HGE-100 is compatible with most current Sony Ericssons, including
the W660i - not just the K530i.
Features of the Sony Ericsson K530i include:
- 2 megapixel camera with 2.5x digital zoom
- Video capture, 3G video calling
- Display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- Music player: PlayNow, TrackID
- FM radio
- Sound recorder
- Polyphonic ringtones / Music tones
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, Email
- 3D Java games
- Personal organiser functions
- Internet: WAP 2.0, Access Netfront Web browser, RSS feeds
- Connectivity:Bluetooth, USB
- Memory: 16 Mbytes plus Memory Stick Micro support (up to 2 Gbytes)
- Flight mode
- Vibration alert
- Triband (GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900) plus 3G (UMTS 2100)
- Size: 102 x 46 x 14 mm
- Weight: 92g
- Talktime: 3 hours (3G) - 9 hours (2G)
- Battery standby: up to 395 hours

I bought this phone as a replacement for a broken Nokia N73. Even though
the N73 was packed with stuff and was a much higher spec than this phone
I really like the K530i. The camera's basic (fixed focus) but I don't
take many pictures on it, so I'm not so bothered by it. The phone's
really easy to use, I don't really have any problems with it. It's small
and light, even though the back does not feel completely secure it's
a good solid phone. The battery life is not great but all phones are
like that these days. It needs charging every couple of days depending
on use. The keypad is a bit too small for my thumbs but it's only a
minor gripe. I'll give it 5 stars and it's a simple phone to use and
just does what I want it to do.

Just got the SE 530i today. Impressive for the price. Very clear, bright
screen. Familiar, smooth SE menus. Mine is all silver, which looks much
nicer than the two-colour version in the image above. The handset is
lighter and thinner than I expected compared to previous SE 3G handsets.
Stylish look and feel even if plastic body. The keypad is a bit fiddly
with the keys a bit too close together for my fingers. The joystick
is gone, replaced by a 4-way button (shame, I must be one of the few
people who actually prefer the joystick). Can't comment on the battery
yet. I agree with previous reviewer that the camera has some limited
features, it's still good for 2M though. Main let-down is volume which
is not very loud for phone calls (music seems to be ok). This may be
due to the network rather than the phone. Overall a solid buy.

Got this phone late in the afternoon today and it was very easy figuring
out how to work this thing even though it is my first time to use a
Sony Ericsson phone(I've had Nokia and Motorola in the past). Nice slim
design too, though the flap protecting the m2 card slot feels like it
might come off if the phone were in less than gentle hands. Camera is
okay, I'm just disappointed with the sound volume -- it gets drowned
out by the sound of rain or even frogs croaking outside. Works fine
on earphones though ;)

I purchased this phone keeping in mind the long standby time displayed
by Sony-Ericsson up to 395 hours (over 16 days). First charge last 2.5
days (because of playing with the phone, configuring, ...). Second charge
3.5 days (around 85 hours) with less that 20 minutes talk, no bluetooth.
The phone in general looks good and it's easy to use. But if you want
battery life, choose another brand. Sony Ericsson sucks. Even my $30
old Nokia have a 6-7 days standby time.

I was having SE W700i upgraded to SE K530i it's a great phone. The Battery
backup is good 4 days. The camera quality also is good but it is missing
the flash. Looks are also great slim. Sound quality is loud enough.
It's a great phone the phone is worth the money. But cant use the 3G
feature as there is no 3G Network in India. But works great with 2G.
Any how it's an great phone it got style, features and everything what
normal multimedia phone wants. GPRS is fast compared to SE W700i download
speed is also fast. Go for this phone it's a great phone worth the money...
Reviewed by Ryan Lim from UK on 2nd Jul 2008
Been using this phone for over 4 months. So far, it has been very good.
As long you know the limits of this phone: 1) Standby means not touching
the phone much. When that is the case, it does live up to the 300++
hrs standby. Normally, you should get a few days unless you use it a
hell of alot for calls, text and/or music. 2) Camera has no flash. Hence,
low light pictures will be poor. As for greenish photos with indoor
lights, try adjusting the white balance in the menu. It worked for me.
If you want better photos, then you have to pay more for the K800 or
better phones with a real Xenon flash. The camera is however much faster
than a typical Nokia phone and has less shutter lag. Pictures in day
light is good for 2Mpixel. But don't expect it to replace a standalone
digital camera where they will always win hands-down against any phone.
The thumbnail browser is very nice and easy to use. 3) Call handup button
is also the Web button on my 3 phone. Hence, if the call ended just
before I press handup, it calls up the web. A slight irritation, but
not really a problem. 4) 3G Sensitivity is perhaps a little poor at
times. But I hear is it not too dissimilar on most other 3G network.
In all, for the price, a very nice phone. I recommend it.

I have dropped this phone a few times and its still ok. Battery life
gets a bit low when using it for things like camera, stopwatch function,
radio, etc (lasts for one day). However if just using it generally without
any major long calls it lasts about 2 to 2 and a half days. Also I find
that if I dont put a screen saver battery lasts longer. It has a few
nifty features which I really like like the 5 alarm system. Keypad is
seriously fine for me I dont have any problems with it, maybe I have
smaller hands. Interface and user friendlyness are good. It took me
a short while to get used to it but its really quite nice after getting
the hang of it. Suprising because I always thought nokia phones were
the most idiot proof. But this model is pretty easy to use as well.
Overall definately worth the money. If anyone knows of any other better
model at this price do state it

I recieved this little number from Orange and was pleasantly suprised
at what was under the 'hood'. A mid range 3g phone which allows me to
access my emails on the go, a music player without the garish walkman
branding, and plenty of stuff to keep me occupied. Ive read a few bad
reviews but it depends on the handset that you get. The one I recieved
is well constructed without the loose battery cover people keep bleeting
on about.Its battery life is good; but you have to consider what the
battery powers especially if your listening to MP3s or the radio. I
like this phone and would recommend it to those who are looking for
a 3g phone without going with 3.

I'm loving my k530i. It's much more affordable compared to other phones,
but it works just as well; if not better. Although the 2-megapixel camera
doesn't work just like in other SE Cyber-shot phones, pictures don't
come out horrible at all. (Although I must admit pictures CAN look quite
grainy when taken in lowlight conditions - but the nightmode was placed
there for a reason.) As for the "tiny buttons" thing, yes, it was very
uncomfortable for me to write text messages during the first time. But
all it takes is a little getting-used to! What I love most about the
k530i (or any SE phones, for that matter) is its strong build. I must've
dropped my phone a million times already and it's still working in tiptop
condition. Oh, and did I mention is't a great 3G phone as well? Definitely
a must-have handset!
