Sony Ericsson K600i review
| ||Review: October 2005
Last updated March 2009
In a nutshell: A slimline 3G phone.
The Sony Ericsson K600i is a 3G phone offering the full range of 3G services, including video calling, video and audio streaming and high speed internet access. It's a well-specified 3G phone with a 1.3 megapixel camera, 262k colour screen, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and bonus features such as an FM radio.
The K600i is available in an aluminium silver casing. It's a smart looking phone, although the keypad and joystick can be quite fiddly to use. Looking at it, you'd never even guess that it was a 3G phone, as it's compact and super-slim, with classic good looks.
The camera is excellent, incorporating a photo light and a 4x digital zoom. The video recorder is also of high quality, and the VideoDJ™ application lets you combine video clips and add music and sound effects to make your own videos. The display is a large 262k colour screen and once again is of excellent quality. The phone comes with a media player (MP3 and videos), a sound recorder and an FM radio. You can compose your own polyphonic ringtones or download tones via 3G.
The K600i is a capable business phone. In addition to the full range of messaging options, including email, there are extra features such as multitasking, an excellent phonebook, a built-in speakerphone and voice commands.
Battery life is excellent for a 3G phone, and switching to 2G will give even greater performance.
The phone's memory stands at 33 Mbytes, which is adequate, but an extra memory card would have been the icing on the cake and would have made the phone even more useful.
The main downside is the fiddly keypad. The audio quality is also not up to Sony Ericsson's usual quality. However, all things considered, it's a good 3G phone and one that should appeal even to those not necessarily interested in the advanced 3G functionality. The Sony Ericsson K608i is the same phone, but is available on the 3 network. The Sony Ericsson V600i is very similar, except that it has an improved keypad, and is available on Vodafone.
Sony Ericsson K600i features include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with picture editor, photo light and 4x digital zoom
- Video camera & sound recorder
- Display: 176 x 220 pixels, 262,144 colours

- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS, email
- Java games (downloadable & embedded - Vijay Singh Pro Golf 2005)
- Wallpaper & screensavers
- Picture phonebook
- Personal organiser functions
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB, Infrared, SyncML
- WAP 2.0, GPRS, HSCSD
- Memory: 33 Mbytes
- Vibration alert
- Triband + 3G (UMTS)
- Size: 104 x 45 x 19 mm
- Weight: 100g
- Talktime: 8 hours (2G), 2 hours (3G)
- Video calling: 1.67 hours
- Battery standby: 370 hours (2G), 290 hours (3G)

This is an excellent phone I would say. It has got all the latest features of new generation phone except it's memory but that's fine. I am using this phone since 2005 and I have no complain about it's bettery or any other features. I would suggest Sony Ericsson to introduce the same model with just one addition of external memory expandable upto 2GB.

"compact and super-slim, with classic good looks"? I have one: it's carrying a house brick in your pocket, and the "cut off" ends make it worse. Memory capacity is truly pathetic, and the battery life is not what is claimed. The golf game is good, although you need to keep an eye on the battery...

I've just had the phone for today, I haven't tried everything but all seems well except for the camera.

Except for that, I would say it is a very good phone although the keypad can be a bit fiddly.

great phone but so are all the other sony ericssons so go for them.
Reviewed by Attila from Romania on 13th Jan 2007
1. First, the biggest problem...the lack of a memory card expansion.
It pretty much defeats the whole idea of a 3G multimedia phone. There's
not much you can store in 33 megabytes. Let's face it, as long as older
phones include a memory card by default, SonyE has bright idea to leave
it out, justifying the decision saying that they didn't want to compromise
the sleek look. Come on, like how thick can a mmc card get :) 2. Second...battery
life. About half of the official specs, if you actually use the phone,
not just keep it as a toy. 3. Camera delay. If you use the maximum resolution
setting, there is a maximum of 1 second delay from pushing the button
to actually taking the shot. Pretty annoying sometimes. 4. Keys. Design-wise
its a good idea to hide the keys, but for somebody with big hands, writing
a sms gets ****evil***. Good points Nice all around design, acceptable
camera quality, fine fm radio, nice media player *if you have the space
for it*. Well configured, bluetooth setup is hassle-free, compared to
other present generation phones. Browser is pretty standard, altough
I do recommend using a 3-rd party software, like mini-opera. Bottom
line: Good all around phone, reliable. If SonyE would find a way to
get around the memory issue...

I bought this phone from a retail store...and told me its refurbished
(whatever it is)...so far the phone's spec is very good (I do love sony

is the battery life...but in general its the phone I hope will last...for
a 3g phone this is the cheapest.

An excellent phone with lots of features and still pretaining the likes
of a candy bar, an eye-catching phone and easy to use. Just a lack of
storage that annoys me. But for all, it is an all rounder in perfection.
If the MP3 is too big, just convert it into RealPlayer format with about
the same quality but less space usage. It will fit almost 28 songs in
it (without saving any pictures, videos and some ringtones etc.) Besides
that, it has a radio as an alternative hearing gadgets to get you going.
The camera is ok, but if added features such as autofocus would be better.
I have been printed the pictures and they look nice. I LOVE MY K600i!

It works well and is well built but it boasts an MP3 player but with
only 33Mb it hardly is!!! Also the reception is pathetic, I often have
no signal or even no network when I'm with people on the same network,
but different phones, and they have full signal. Also the joystick works
badly and eventually fills with dust and ceases to work; meaning I have
to use the numbers to navigate!! it's a good, well built phone but the
small details annoy me. The 3G is ace though!!

This phone is great. Ive just glanced through the reviews and only read
the ones with the lowest rating. For the person who thinks that there
is only short video - NOT TRUE, that is you laziness and not reading
the manual if you cant figure it out yourself. You see, the 12 second
video is made for mms sending, because it isnt too big. But you can
easily set the quality to high and you can record a video even 20 minutes
long, including zooming while recording. And to the person with signal
problems.. I know a few people who have this phone, no one has problems
with this. And the battery life is connected with it, since the phone
struggles to connect to the operator you have and that drains the battery

Well to begin with I have purchased and used many phones when they come

built, well finished and packed with all features i want. If i want
a great camera, I would go and buy a camera and not a phone, like wise
for a Mp 3 player. So in a phone, the features they have packed is quite
adequate and that too easy to use.

I am now on the 3rd version of this phone. I have had nothing but problems.
The reception is terrible - I can be sitting next to a friend who is
on the same network as me, but has a Nokia phone, and he has 3 or 4
bars of reception; I have none! This is a regular problem. Other times
there will be reception bars showing on the phone but there is "no access
to the network" - once again a friend on the same network but with a
different phone has got reception and a network. The battery life is
very poor and seems inconsistent. And the phone doesn't seem to want
to turn on sometimes - this has been an issue with all 3 versions of
this phone which I have had in my posession. I was originally with Vodafone
and I had problems with a number of different Sony Ericsson phones -
I thought it was the Vodafone software. But I have recently switched
to another network provider and the problems still exist with the Sony
Ericsson phones. What are they doing to them??!!

I'd say if you want more memory then go for the high-end models with
memory card expandability. Personally, I think this phone is the best
bang for the buck...you get video-calling, 1.3M-pixel camera, FM radio,
mp3 ringtones, bluetooth etc. I've owned Nokia before phones and my
last was the Nokia 6600. But the Sony Ericsson's K600i speaker is much
better than the 6600 (you could hardly hear the mp3 ringtones with Nokia
6600). What can I say, I like the phone and if I wanted more space for
my mp3, I'd rather go get an iPod or Creative Zen series. I find it
a bit of an overkill that a phone should be a "be-all" gadget...simply
because if it breaks down later...you also lose you mp3 player, your
camera, etc...because you've so much relied on one gadget having all

Just got the K600i after a series of 5 Nokias. Good looking phone. Things
are all pretty there. However, the camera (1.3 megapixel) is not really
good. Pictures taken are full of noise and blur. There's no extra slot
for memory card, so the music function is limited. The screen is good
but rather small. And I got difficulites in texting, due to the flat
keypad (fashionable, but less useable!). The UI of SE phone is also
less friendly compared to Nokia ones, but I'll try to get use with it
soon. Besides that, the Radio, the sound quality and the connection
is very good. 3.5 round up to 4 stars for K600i

Reviewed by Ally K from United Kingdom on 7th
As it was a free phone upgrade I can't ompare a value but the K600i
is simply superb. Reading most of the downside reviews I found most
to be Ok ie 8 second video - (read the book and you can have much longer)
Image quality very good not outstanding but very good for 1.3MP Burst
mode great for actin shots Panorama simple to use great results. MP3
player very good but not for the music lovers with only 33MB ram. One
way around this is to download the Nokia Media converter and convert
your MP3's to much smaller size and get more fitted on your K600i :)
Internet very quick and easy to navigate. text messageing agree fiddly
keys if you have large fingers if not it's easy to use. Shortcut button
on the right hand side is a great idea and works really well. Overall
out of 10 I would give it 9 as anything can always be improved but if
you are looking for an upgrade to 3G this is worth looking at. easy
bluetooth download to pc makes it simple to put your pics ready for
printing. Video DJ - Music DJ Photo DJ are fun to use and work really
well. Media Player great fun. great games Vijay Singh golf works really
well for a phone game good graphics. This is a very useful phone - great
signal even in the car (handsfree) Very good organiser (plus). I use
the recorder a lot and it is easy to use with loud playback with a great
pickup. Neat and slim great looking but watch you don't scratch the
screen no cover so no coins in the pocket.Some say poor ring volume
- raed the book and turn it up and it will work pretty well to noramal
ears i'm a bit deaf and still hear it well. have fun with this Sony

This phone is really great! I bought it with a cheap price(RM999)in
the market, and it is original! Nice sound, cool design, 1.3MP camera
is enough to capture a wallpaper-size photo, friendly-use function plus
3G! The only weakness is 33Mb space is not enough. The camera also dont
have auto-focus function like k750i. (although the function is not too
important). other feature is so great!!

fantastic phone, great camera 1.3 MP, good speaker, good menu, good
dictionary, and nice and small. However, 2 let downs the memory is crap,
need a SD slot for good sterio. Needs bigger buttons, took a while to
get used to but if they were indented a bit it would make it alot easier.
very good camera, good photos always, great features, nice screen size.
If this was a duel screen flip i would of payed an extra $200 for it.
Good 3G use, only needs a remote for the tv, but the bluethooth remote
for the media player can come in quite handy. Good email use too. Great
phone, recemmend it to any 15-16 year old.

I bought this phone today on PAYG, and it is the best mobile phone i
have ever had. Quality megapixel camera, bluetooth, everything you could
need in a phone. Downsides are its memory capacity for people who would
need it for use as an mp3 player, and the keypad can be abit fiddly.

We recently got a K600i on the O2 network as an upgrade for the wife.
Key requirements were Bluetooth for headset/handsfree use and 3G as
there is little point carrying on with 2G for another contract year
(other family phones are all 3G, this was the last). We read up on the
K600i BEFORE accepting the upgrade so knew what to expect in terms of
features/design. Initial impressions of the handset were favourable
- compact size, attractive design, functional buttons, excellent and
intuitive SE menus and accompanying help. Setting up was a snap, within
a few minutes it was customised for use. Sound quality is superb - as
was the volume for ringtone that some complain about on here (I suspect
they have faulty handsets and should get them serviced/replaced). Bluetooth
functions perfectly, limited by the functionality of the headset and
not the phone (headset but no handsfree!). Keypad is initially fiddly
to get used to, but it did not take long. We don't use T9 and that has
been no issue either. The camera is good quality and works well. Memory
size is fixed and limited - this is not a handset for the big MP3 user.
But the FM radio does go some way to making up for this. The only gripe
that I have a the moment is the K600i's use of 3G - we have a transmitter
mast fairly near us (within 200m) but it insists on dropping to 2G regularly.
We are investigating this with O2 as it is most likely not a handset
issue, but it is irritating nonetheless. Outside of the house the K600i
holds on to 3G signals much better - but again, O2's 3G network is by
no means ubiquitous yet (35% cover the last time I read). So all in
all, a four star rating because of the 3G/2G issues but in all other
respects the K600i comes highly recommended from me.

I CANT SEE WHY THIS PHONE IS GETTING MIXED REVIEWS, THERE MUST BE 2
MODELS, I NEED A CAMERA FOR MY JOB AND THOUGHT WOW A 1.3 MP PHONE ,
HOW WRONG I WAS , THIS IS THE WORST PICTURE IVE EVER SEEN ,VERY GRAINY
AND MY OLD SAGEM MYV55 IS BETTER, MAYBE THERES A PICTURE OPTION ID BETTER
CHECK AND WHATS THE POINT OF A 8 SECOND VIDEO CLIP AT THE SAME PICTURE
QUALITY , IM ALSO HAVING TROUBLE DOWN LOADING MP3S FORM MY PC MAYBE
YOU CAN ONLY DOWNLOAD VIA VODAPHONE LIVE AND SPEND MOST OF MY CREDIT,
ALSO THE DOWNSIDE TO THE VODAPHONE NETWORK IS THAT IF YOU MISS A CALL
THEY WILL SEND YOU A REMINDER ABOUT 4 TIMES THEN A TEXT MESSAGE THIS

first: itīs just great phone. second: itīs rediculus that
so much people are sayinī that this phone isnīt good. i
think itīs one of the best you can buy. okay thereīs the
thing with the memory, but 37MB are a lot if you take songs/videos into
a smaller size with a special program. My songs are always less then
600KB. So my result is that this phone is just the best. itīs

Qaulity phone, everything brill except texting
Reviewed by Adrian from UK on 26th Feb 2006
The phone is very attractive but thats one of the very few good points.
Ring volume is very poor any background noise and you can't here it.
Reception seems to be poor, i have a Nokia on the same network as well
which seems to pick up signal much better. The keypad is a joke with
the flat buttons i am always hitting the wrong button which makes texting
annoying! I like the camera and FM radio is very good as well but i
can't get over the keypad and poor reception.

This phone looks very stylish and has a good grip to hold. The comments
about not able to get used to T9/texting looks like adaptability issue.
Once u r adapted to this, you will find it quite fast and when you move
to other fones, you will regret that they are not as good as this is.
This fone looks quite decent for corporate executive. Very clean designs.
Speakers ARE GOOD and good enough to spk and drive your car. FM too
is good in reception. Camera is good too and almost offer range of options
that a digicam will do. The screen and memory could have been bigger
and this fone would have been a killer at the price point. But you cant
get a merc at a price of a ford. I like this. The K610i is even more
Reviewed by Davin from USA on 8th Feb 2006
Overall this is a very good phone. Great design, packed with pretty
good features as along Sony Ercisson can do. My only gripes with the
phone are the camera quality could have been better...not sure why the
camera in either the k750i or even the s700i wasn't used. Also, as cool
as the design is, for people with larger hands and who grip their phone
firmly when using it, the edges does feel slightly uncomfortable after
a while. Still, I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a solid phone with
good all-around features.

This phone is absolutely fantastic! Was a little unsure after reading
other negative reviews, but i risked it and it was so worth it. Cost
99 quid and was blown away by how great it was. Really good features,
Radio is crystal clear, camera is very good as is the video clip function.
Never had a problem with the 3G, have'nt used it often yet though. Ringtone
was low to being with, but i turned up the volume and it is fine (a
lot louder if you leave it on it's back with the speaker shown). Talking
is perfectly clear, all the additions (being able to assign ringtones
to certain contacts etc) are really excellent. It looks lovely - and
is lovely. Anyone considering getting a phone in this price range the
K600i is the one

I thought this phone looked fantastic and seemed to have everything.
The problem is I traded my previous phone for this because I needed
automatic bluetooth connection. The K600i is useless for this, it seems
to work at random but mostly not at all resulting in the phone freezing
and unable to connect again even manually.
