Sony Ericsson K700i review

 Review: September 2004  

Last updated December 2008


In a nutshell: A superb phone with camcorder, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, large 65k colour screen, FM radio and MP3 audio.


The Sony Ericsson K700i adds additional functionality to the popular and highly-rated T630 model. What's new in the K700i? Firstly, the VGA camera has been enhanced with a camcorder capability for recording videos. The TFT screen is 65,000 colours, like the T630, but it has been increased to nearly twice the size of the T630 - great for photos, videos and games. Ringtones have been upgraded from 32-voice to 40-voice. There's also an integrated FM radio and MP3 player. Another improvement is the increased memory - at 41Mbytes, this is more than virtually any other phone on the market, and is ideal for storing photos, videos and music.

The brushed aluminium finish of the phone and the curved shape make for a very sexy image, and the phone definitely deserves 5 stars when it comes to looks.

Sony Ericsson claim that the K700i is "as much a camera as it is a phone". That's a bit of a wild claim, considering that the camera's resolution of 0.3 megapixels is less than that of even the cheapest digital camera, however let's not forget that Sony are one of the top 3 manufacturers of digital cameras and when first released this was one of the best camera phones. The integrated camera can be activated in one click, with one more click to take a picture. Sony Ericsson's new QuickShare™ technology enables you to easily share pictures with your PC or other phones, using Bluetooth™, email, MMS or data cable. The camera is equipped with a 4x digital zoom and a camera light. The K700i has been designed very much with this camera-phone dual concept in mind. From the front, the device is very much a functional mobile phone; from the other side, it's a camera!

The K700i does suffer from occasional reliability problems (mainly freezing or random shutting down) and has now been replaced by the K750i.

Sony Ericsson K700i features include:

  • Colour display (65,536 colours, 176 x 220 pixels)
  • Integrated VGA camera with video recorder (including sound)
  • Bluetooth™, infrared and cable (USB & RS232) connectivity
  • Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) - send pictures and sound like text messages
  • Downloadable 40-voice polyphonic & mono ringtones, plus ringtone editor (MusicDJ™)
  • Downloadable Java™ games
  • FM radio and MP3 player
  • WAP 2.0 (GPRS), email
  • High Speed Data (HSCSD - up to 28.8 kbps)
  • Speed dialling & voice dialling
  • Joystick, camera button, navigation key, menu shortcuts
  • Predictive text (T9)
  • Mobile chat
  • Voice memo / recorder
  • Speaker phone
  • Picture phone book
  • Wallpaper, screensaver and themes - all downloadable
  • Calculator, calendar, alarm, stopwatch
  • Sync ML
  • Memory: 41 Mbytes
  • Size: 99 x 47 x 20 mm
  • Weight: 93g
  • Battery standby: 300 hours
  • Battery talktime: 8 hours
  • Vibration alert

Yes I know I might be writing this in 2009 but still................ I used to have this phone, and it was very good for what is was. Very good camera, pretty much all the capabilities that a modern phone has these days.....(e.g nokia E95, Nokia E96, Samsung Soul), very impressive really. But 1 bad thing. The navigator!! For example when you are scrolling down your contact list you end up selecting half the contacts and ringing them before you reach who you want in the list. Now i have the Sony Ericsson T2801, which isn't as good I dont think. No video media at all. Quite simple. But yet capable of doing other stuff i guess.

Hello, Actually, I was attracted with the cool stylish Sony Ericcson k700i the mobile phone is good, only that the hassle is its joystick that if a user does'nt have a good flex enough things will surely disappear on the process of operating the phone, but it coud have been good if its integrated camera was embellished by its designer with at least 2 megapixel resolution

My dad got this phone in 2004 and when he upgraded (in 05) i think to a k750 or k800i or something he gave me this one. It has been a great phone. It has a few hundred pictures on it and many funny videos which i have taken over the years and the overall funcionality is great. The battery deteriorates over time though and in early 07 when i was using this phone a lot, it wouldn't last the day if i was taking pictures and videos. This camera was pretty good for a camera on such an old phone and the pictures i took were very clear (as long as the pictures were taken outdoors)and the camcorder capsbility was quite good as well. It wasn't exactly up to the 30fps 640x480 recording of my cybershot but it's quite impressive for such an old phone (i think it is 10fps 120x200 or something). Another one of my gripes with this phone is that there is an MP3 player yet no external memory so you can hardly store anything on there, definitely not a multimedia phone. T-Mobile are r ubbish and they have deactived my sim for not topping it up for a few months and because of the condition of this phone i am going to abandon it and buy a samsung E250 or something like that, there is also no way i am paying the fish-cakes at T-Mobile 10 (which i don't even get to redeem in credit) to reactivate my sim. Also because it is a T-Mobile phone, i can't use any other sims which is a shame.

OK...First a phone have to be a phone... calling people and answering calls... and hearing the other person loud enough! BIGGEST PROBLEM: After 1 year of having this phone it happens to offten that when somebody calls me the phone shuts itself even with plenty of battery. Often I was in certain crowded places and rarely I could understood what the other person said; Plus, the rechgarge cable.. is kinda tricky. Other then that, nice toy, has plenty of features. But like I said, a phone first have to be a phone not a toy.

pretty rubish after a while you carnt hardley store more then 10 full songs and thats without any pics or games.The camera is good and is very good at recording videos but the resolution is not so good and you carnt get rid of the shutter noise or change it,the phone itself looks good and very modern but can be easily be scratched i sould know i have had one, The most annyoing thing about it is proberly the way it freezes all the time and the joystick can get dirty very easily so you carnt use it and to clean it you have to take the whole thing apart, the music sounds good and has a very good base and tune but it is let down by the tiny long speaker in the back. the effects on the camera are great if you feel you want to mess around but the night mode is slow and takes awile to take a photo.The torch is very bright and easily lights up the background but easily takes half your battery away. overall i think it can be worth getting if you the sony ericcson type but th ere are plenty of better ones out i suggest if you are looking for a sony ericcson for music and great quality look for a walkman.

Its an alright phone, but when trying to transfer music from my pc to the phone, i had to buy a 15 cable from sony ericsson, once i got it, the install instructions werent very good and every time i put the cable in my PC, it froze =[ I found it very hard to actually get a song onto the phone, it took about half an hour to put a 5mb song on. And after that, it wouldnt connect to my pc anymore. My battery died every few days and had to recharge it alot which was a downside, but the bluetooth is good.

But if u want a phone tht u charge everyday (and that is reluctant for the charger to even go in the socket and charge) then buy it there is loads of gd features on the phone but the cons weigh it down 1) poor battery life 2)camera is average to poor 3)the joystick well u can press it loads of times and just as if it is ignoring you 4)the keypad is very clicky n noisy. I would say go and buy a nokia, the battery life is great and they are built like as solid as a house. Throw a nokia and it will work fine, but these will fall to pieces. The best sony ericsson to buy is the T610.My old 1 is still goin.im going back to that

Great wee mobile phone. Apart from the joystick being a little stubborn at times, this is by far the best phone I have had and I have had some which are 'supposed' to be better. The K700i does all I need it to do and I can buy all accessories for the PC which makes it simple to use all facilities on the phone to communicate with others via the PC - great for office use. Also has decent memeory and pretty good camera. Don't like the cheap feeling of the repalcement cases, but I always use the protective case anyway, so no bother there. The soft cases could be more imaginative than only BLACK, though.

hi, ive read so many reviews, and sometimes think the writer is either biased or inexperienced to give a proper and meaningful review of a mobile phone. i am in my 20's. i like all the nice shiny-light-up-gadgety-things on the exterior of a phone yet i also like the simple features inside a phone. i rate a phone on its features, practicality, and general effeicincy, so that other people who have some "proper experience" with checking the ins-and-outs of a phone from top-2-bottom can get a simple and genuine overview of what they plan to buy as their new mobile. SONY K700i the phone reminds me of the "mowbli" phone cartoon used for the CARPHONE WAREHOUSE ads. -the joystick gets worn out easily, but ive been using the numberbad instead as a joystick. -the phone does everything perfectly, the phone is almost faultless for a mobile from its year. -the phones been dropped literally 100's of times, sometimes i dropped it on purpose!! it has survived 3 visits to the toilet and still went strong. -the phone has provided me with 3years worth of excellent service, even though i have many upgrades, even the K810i, i still used this phone, until yesterday.... after years of batterring, the phones software has developed a problem, and doesnt charge anymore. this phone is easy and great to use for beginners to sony ericsson phones. ///////////////////////////////////////////////// i have used mobile phones since 1995, i am in business and require 8 mobiles for different purposes. ive used every brand including the siemens, and original Ericsson brick handsets and sony Z & J series. i must say that overall if your lookin for a mobile, then get a SONY ERICSSON! they are abit fiddly to use at 1st but are simple, as with everything, with practise. furthermore i have many friends and relatives who work in the mobile phone industry, either as network staff or mobile phone shop owners...i can safely say that all of them prefer using sony ericssons. *SE phones are jam-packed with latest features, but tend to look and feel abit cheap in some models. *Samsungs just look nice and shiny and are useless for practicality and serious use. *Nokia are for the die-hard fans who think Nokia still make great phones like before, which they dont. N95 is packed with new-gen features, but is slow and not efficient. *MOTOROLA is just for the guys who wanna look cool flipping/sliding open their phone! apart from that their rubbish to use. ive had God knows how many V3 look-a-like motorolas, and was recently offered the new Z8, which i refused without a moments hesitation. *LG is a waste of time and money. ive used and returned the CHOCOLATE, PRADA and U880.

The k700i is a very reliable phone. I have had it for years and it hasnt given up once. Apart from the lack of a walkman the k700i has everthing. It even has infared which most phones now dont have. One problem with this phone though is the sometimes very annoying joystick.

this Phone is really great, but i think the battery life is poor it stand over 3 days for max. (with out using it)! and 1 day (with use) but really i like this phone ! it's been with me sins a long time , i never get bored from it ! it's really great ! it had a lot of options , interresting options, i advice all To buy this phone with out thinking, but don't get confused when you find that the battery life is poor, but really it don't influence on the mobile ! it's ok you can charge the phone every few days ( it take only 2 hours to full charge it) enjoy sony ericsson !

Up to today i have a sonyericson k700i. its a very wonderful mobile phone but the only problem have seen is that, it made in such a way that you can not asign a massage alert of your choice say downlaoded ringtones. you only use those made with it.

I bought this phone 4 years ago and returned it the following day (only coz it was too late to return it the same day), i have no idea why people like sony ericssons .. first of all the volume of the ringtones was so low u can hardly hear it ringin!! the keypad is soo down there u have to be handicaped to be able to work it, after 5 minutes my fingers got cramps.. then it is extremely heavy (u have to be a bodybuilder to hold one) and also it is bulky and fat .. the 1 star is for the good resolution of the screen only !
