Sony Ericsson K750i Review
Review: June 2005. Last updated September 2006.
The Sony Ericsson replaces the Sony
Ericsson K700i and is a big improvement. It's a big step up in the
world of camera phones, with a 2-megapixel digital camera with autofocus.
Previous camera phones were all fixed focus, which is OK for quick point-and-shoot
pictures, but with autofocus you can ensure crisp sharp shots of the
subject. This is an exciting development which moves phone camera technology
a big step forward.
The K750i doesn't stop there - it's a fully featured phone with the
best of everything - video camera, digital music player, FM radio, Bluetooth,
memory stick, triband - you name it, it's got it! Its screen is as good
as anything going - much better than the Nokia
6230i, the same resolution as the Samsung
D500, but not quite as high as the Sony
It's built on a dependable platform - the SE K series - and is a very
easy phone to use, with a joystick, menu shortcuts and camera button
to aid navigation. It's a good-looking, well-built phone that's a good
size and offers everything that's available in phone technology (except
3G and SmartPhone functionality). Now replaced by the Sony
Ericsson K800i, which offers 3G and an improved camera.
Features of the Sony Ericsson K750i include:
- 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, 4x digital zoom & photo light
- Video camera & sound recorder
- Display: 262k colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- Music player
- FM radio
- 40-voice polyphonic ringtones
- Polyphonic melody composer (MusicDJ)
- Speakerphone, voice controls, voice mail
- Messaging: SMS (with predictive text), EMS, MMS,
Instant messaging, email
- Java games (embedded & downloadable)
- Animated wallpaper
- Picture editor and effects
- Personal organiser functions
- Picture phonebook
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB, Infra-red
- WAP 2.0, GPRS
- Memory: 34 Mbytes plus Memory Stick Duo
- Vibration alert
- Size: 100 x 46 x 21 mm
- Talktime: 9 hours
- Battery standby: 400 hours

I bought this mobile like six years ago. It got broken like a year ago.
Buy I assure you, this is the best mobile anyone can get! Its battery
goes a long time even when there's only 5% left, it has amazing picture
and video editing functions, it has stopwatch, timer and you can even
display notes on the homescreen. It is the best phone of its time. Yes,
it doesn't have much memory and mp, but at that time, it had the most
memory possible. I wish I could buy a new mobile like this, but apparently
these aren't available anymore. Even my cousin bought one of K700s.

Of course it does. Sure, it's a little hard but you can do that. Once
you learn how to do that, there's no problem. Plus, it has a long wire
of connection, which is good, unlike my new dum phone.

Only had the phone a few days. So far have successfully connected to
the PC for transferring MP3 files and pictures - after finally reading
the instructions!!! The screen is superb the sound good picture quality
excellent. But so far I like the fact that the battery is much better
than my last phone E700 and 6230.

This phone is the DADDY!!! Best camera/Video I have seen yet. Not over
keen on the front but the back is sexy. Being able to zoom in and out
on pics bluetooth'd to me by other phones is great. You can start a
Vid, pause it and start again. V impressed. Previously had the D500
which is good phone but the alarm signals annoyed me no end. Good to
go back to Sony Ericsson.

Here is my opinion for what its worth Bad Points: -Problems with slow
interface. Hate the sliding effects just slows the phone down and makes
it ugly -Cannot charge and use headset for radio / music at the same
time unlike my old Nokia 6230. -The hands free kit provided cannot control
radio / music why this is I am not sure? -Memory card slot opening is
made of rubber material, feels cheap and seems it might break off. -Sony
Ericsson does not provide many software freebies unlike my nokia 6230.
-The interface sometimes seem its frozen. This is a sign of badly written
multi-threading. I had to take battery out and re-insert because I got
fed up of waiting once, it never happend again though? -For some reason
the message tones are very soft and short. ring tones are loud enough.
(I keep phone on silent mostly so its not too important to me) -The
video DJ and other such features are just token items. Better to provide
more useful applications, rather than charge us later. -Battery can
run out quickly if you are having too much fun with all the features.
I expect this though! Good points: -Technologically its amazing. -Great
Camera 2Mpixel is enough for silly photos -The camera auto focus does
sort of work -Good video for a phone -Bluetooth (not sure if voice stack
is supported) -Can charge the phone from USB port, nice feature -Supports
SSL, IMAP and POP3 for email -GPRS works well and is easy to setup.
-Infrared is there as a token too. -Supports J2ME 2.0 latest KVM for
those micro developers out there who make apps. -Good size overall -The
torch light feature comes in handy more than expected. -Buttons are
fairly comfortable. -64MB included card is ok in size 512MB is needed
to really have some fun though. -Sound quality out of Speakers is ok
for a phone and the headset. It also has equaliser settings. -The calendar
is decent for scheduling but really no where close to a PDA but still
its fairly decent.

Have had this phone for a week and frankly, it's brilliant. I've been
a nokia user for the last 5 years, and I've been a very satisfied one,
but I thought this phone looked pretty smart and I haven't looked back.
Still getting used to it in some areas, but that what happens when you
get a new phone, but am very happy with it. I'm very sad to say this
as a nokia fan, but this SE is so much better than anything they've
produced so far.

i bought it just 2 weeks back and it is full of scratches.Reason being
no option to change the skin.SUCKS!web browser is very slow and can
not download files greater than 500kb. again a sucking feature.no edge
in the phone that makes it below 6230i.lack of 60 series software means
you can not install applications of your choice and have to keep using
the boring appliactions preinstalled in the phone.As far as the camera
is concerned,auto focus is a good feature but when you take pic on vga
or on 1600 into 1200 pixel you will get a lot of dotes in the pic this

OKIE DOKIE,, the phone is superb. One simple solution for Calls, Emergency
light, Casual photography, Rdio on the go, Music while u are on roads,
e-mail browsing, Recording lectures, and so on. i have been a proud
owner of SE phones and truly speaking i love them all starting from
t68i. i had k750i for good about a month, i loved it( One loves sony
ericsson ) i enjoyed every feature of it, the new features are 2MP camera,
stroger light, vivid and 262k TFT, External storage upto 2GB and a full
screen plyback of vidoes. Great improvement, two thumbs up. I would
only suggest one thing to SE please start off with Symbian based phones,
i do know u already are in with p900 or p910 i had them as well but
its not always a brilliant idea of acrying a big phone and using stick
all the times ( Good for businessmen, serious PDA users or people who
really want PDAs) i dont think so that most of us would require PDAs.
Anyways, nokia has always been pathetic in ringtones, size, and so calle
d designer inventions. i have been with SE for good about six years
now and i still love them especially k750i is probably the best for
some one who doesnt care for symbian bla bla, the best JAVA based phone
ever made till date, i did hear about nokia 6370 or 6380 ( i am not
sure abt the model numbers cuz there are so many 123456789....) which
are having almost simillar features 2mp camera and stuff but people
nothing i say again nothing can make nokia ( Java Phones and sybian
ones earlier than 6680) win over k750i. i have just sold my k750i an
hour ago, i am seriously sad. i am planning to get a nokia 6680 for
myself but am realy not sure how the ringtones and mp3 playback would
be. i am loosing the edge of small size, and wonderful performance of
k750i just to gain symbian after knowing that the nokia has added a
stereo player in it and they have gone to 64 chord polyphonics. lets
see,, but people i would say if u are going for a JAVA phone simply
leave everything,, GO FOR SE and if u can spend a little more the best
is SE750i simply no match......... JUST BUY IT and u would start lovin

All you nokia fans out there its time to give up. Youve been beaten
by a company with superior technology, cutting edge design and overall
impresive performance. Im talking bout the Sony ericsson k750i,Bulls***
nokia 6230i and how its better. Believe me, ive had 40 phones in three
years including the 6230i last week which i returned as its a clone
of its previous models. I purshashed my K750i today and i have to say,
straight up , the best phone thats coming out this year. The crisp,
vivid screen made the nokias screen of the same colours(262k) look like
a early model colour mobile with scratchy graphics, poor, unresponsive
camera and overall crap features. Nokia is the sorriest excuse for a
mobile company i've ever seen. They try to fool buyers by putting flashy,
cheap looking covers on previous models and giving them overated specs
so they can almost reach the league in which Sony lies. THe k750i has
a superb camera, oputstounding features and vibrant menu all packed
into a case smaller and lighter than the nokia 6230i. All you kids out
there, forget NOKIa, get a real phone. peace out

This phone is quality. Excellent features, no problems with it at all.
Its small, looks good and is better than anything out there. I noticed
a few bad reviews further down the page and can only presume that they
are to do with the first few models models that had software teething
problems or that they are from the nokia faithfull who are to inept
to adjust to a different format! Outstanding phone.

Bought this a month ago...mainly because I wanted email and web browser/mobile
phone combination. I have had no problems at all other than human error.
The connection to my computer by usb is slow, but works admirably, and
the phone has never hung or frozen on me. As a photographer the camera
is a real bonus, as is radio, tape recorder and mp3 which also work
well. I liked the fact that if I find myself lost on the fells in the
dark, it will flash SOS for me :) A lot of people just do not read the
manual, and well; I'm sorry but if you drop or miss-handle something
like this, expect it to break or get scratched. I respect my equipment,
and treat it with care. This is one giant leap. No regrets. d.

Sorry ppl, this is a rather crapy handset! I was really hoping for great
things from this little functional wonder with all its nice features
- got it the first day O2 released it online! Well, what can I say,
from the first moment I started to get software problems with it + i
found the interface to be fiddly and messy... sure the features are
great but what good is that if the thing keeps crashing and failing?
sound quality was poor and bluetooth connectivity with my headset was
a joke and also battery life was disappointing. the worst thing happened
when after rebooting it to try and get the camera to work (it stopped
just like that and wouldn't launch) the darned thing just wouldn't boot
up! that's it the phone died! whatever I did i couldn't get it to start
again... took the battery out, replaced the simm and the memory thingie
- nada! all i got was the white screen of death (is Sony trying to compete
with Microsoft or somethin?) nothing helped... the useless thing is
now back to O2 and i'm off to get me a nice little Samsung or Nokia
- come to think about it, I never did like Sony stuff....

Couldn't decide whether to go for the 6230i or the k750i. Decided to
go for the k750i even though I thought I'd end up taking it back and
swapping it for the nokia. Nearly did after the first night when nothing
seemed to make sense (after being used to nokias, anything seems complicated).
Soon got used to it though and now I can't believe I ever found it confusing
at all. I've since had a look at the 6230i and there's no way I'd swap!

I bought my K750i virtually the day it was first available. I am normally
a Nokia user, but having read outstanding reviews on the K750i, I thought
I would have a change. I am disappointed with two aspects (o2 user):
The first is, as mentioned by Jen and Doobla, that for no reason at
all, the phone intermittently freezes, especially in sleep clock mode.
The second is similar to what Jason has experienced, that my K750i seems
incompatible with o2 wap GPRS settings. Therefore I cannot even access
the internet. I have had a 45 min conversation with an extremely helpful
woman from o2 tech svs, who advised me my settings were correct - still
no connection. My sim card is not faulty, so....ummm? The rest of the
phone is in my opinion almost faultless. I get loud ringtones, the menu
is easy to follow once you are used to it. The camera is great. So 4
out 5 points for this. If anyone has any advice to give me, I would
like to hear it.

WOW! This really is a great phone. Up until this morning i have had
a motorola v300 which to be honest was rubbish! The camera quality on
the SE K750i is fantastic, with the new auto focus pictures are even
more clearer and when printed they look really great. The MP3 player
is also a great feature, ezpecially with the expandable memory card
slot. The price is also great for what your getting. I got mine and
it was one of the new and 'imroved' modles according to this guy that
sold it to me. Apparently there was a problem with some of the older
modles where they kept freezing, but so far mine has been great, i even
got it on t-mobile so i could keep my old number. The phone itself looks
really sexy and attractive, the back of the phone has a slidable slot
which protects the camera. This is made out of tough stainless steel.
The camera also has a built in flast so you can take pictures in the
dark. The video capture quality is slightly less as god as normal pictures
but much m uch better than any nokia phone! This phone is a must have
and im really glad i have one, you should get one. In my honest opinion
i think this phone is better than the samsung d500/ d600.

Reviewed by Harry from London on 23rd Jun 2005
I'm long term Nokia user, and thought it was time for a change. I've
used the K750 for 2 weeks now. It's impressive with a very good camera
and very good screen. But the interface drives me nuts! However much
I try I just can't see any logic in the button or menu layout. Here's
a few examples: i) Why on earth did they think it’s a good idea
to clear the text message buffer when you navigate away from writing
a text. Just leave it there! It's not like the phone's short on memory!
( You do get the chance to save it to Drafts, then you have to navigate
around the find the message again. - I just want to go resume texting
where I left off. Drives me up the wall. Nokia fixed this years ago)
ii) No one-button shortcut to write a text message. (you can create
a shortcut to the message type selector menu, but you can't just start
texting!) iii) Can't lock the keypad without getting back to the main
menu, and there's no button for this like there is on a Nokia (you have
to hold the Back button down for ages, then you can lock the keypad)
iv) when you miss 3 calls, you'd want to know who they were. Once you
know this you wouldn't want to the phone to display the missed calls
icon. On the Nokia this was easy. As soon as you read the missed call
notification icon disappears. With the SE you have to manually navigate
to the New Events list press a soft key to Dismiss the entry, and then
it asks Dismiss Yes/No. This is about 5 button presses that you never
had to do on a Nokia. Drives me insane. v) There’s no Red and
Green buttons. This sounds silly, but conceptually it very important.
I want a Negative button (end call, return to home menu, exit game,
panic/stop button) and a Positive button (call, answer call, OK etc)
The SE has blurred this concept, they have a back button which just
navigates up a menu level, and 2 soft keys which do different things.
So even to answer a call you have to look at the screen to find out
which soft key the GUI wants you to press. There’s no instinct
just to press the positive Yes button. I really miss this concept. vi)
The keys on the keypad are not ergonomically distinct, they're all uniform
and close together so you keep making mistakes which slows texting.
You start to realise why Nokia can be complacent. They have the most
streamlined, refined interface that is optimised for heavy everyday
use minimising the number of button presses and general faffing. Come
back Nokia! ... will you forgive me? Please? (sorry I said you were
ugly, I didn't mean it...)

was trying so hard to be th k700. same spacs and stuff but looked like
junk. whats next? there gonna make a 6748u53 with the same specs as

It's been fun (for a while) to read some of the posts here (not just
for this phone) Are all Nokia users complete *****?. Firstly people,
there's nobody out here who's going to take notice of someone who can
barely speak English. Secondly, what's with all the insecure types out
there...my phone is better than yours! No it's not! Yes it is!! Damn
I had a Sharp GX10i and have only just changed it for this. It wasn't
a bad phone (considering that it's main use was to speak to others??!)
but it's features were poor. Guess what though, after 2 years of abuse
it still works fine and looks like new! Now that is the real test of
any bit of kit. On to the Sony! After upgrading to this I have to admit
I'm pretty impressed. I can't report any problems or major gripes. True,
I'm scared to drop it, but then it wasn't made to bounce. It won't play
protected music but that's no problem really (W800 anyone?). It will
play MP3's MPEG4 etc. The camera is a 2 Mega pixel autofocus unit with
a pair of incredibly bright white LED's that also function as a torch.
It can record movies in Apple's .MOV format. The screen display is bright
and crisp with great colour depth. The bundled games are crap (as always)
although look impressive. This phone seems more powerful than some fairly
recent game consoles. It actually has dedicated 3D graphics. Sound is
great through the bundled headphones but I find them uncomfortable and
you can't replace them with your favourites because of the Sony Ericsson
designed connector. I wish companies would use standard connections.
Speaker sound is relatively good quality but not very loud. The camera
is hidden by a shutter - no more crap on the lens! There's an 8X digital
zoom on this camera also and in high quality mode the pictures are at
1632x1224 resolution. Very nice quality for a phone. The keys are responsive
and I have no trouble using them - my sister can speed text on it and
says it's great. (She's a Nokia fan). It switches on and off nice and
quick too! I really like that. Bundled data cable is brilliant! Problems?
The small joystick is fiddly for people with big hands. It looks so
good you don't want to put down in case it gets scratched. I can't find
a case for it yet. People won't leave it alone!!! Having phone memory
and seperate MemoryStick memory can be awkward sometimes. You can use
windows explorer to drag and drop files to the memory stick (it appears
as an external drive) but you need to install sonyericsson software
to access the memory in the phone itself (although basically it's windows
explorer again). Battery life? Good enough for me but I don't live and
sleep with my phone. Guess what sometimes I even leave it at home!!
That's right.. I go OUTSIDE without my phone!! Seriously though, with
all these toys on it I charge it every night. Loads more to say but
this text is way too long now. I'm giving it 4/5 because nothing's perfect
and it still has to last a couple of years before I get the next one.

Why should you buy the SE K750i? Well, it looks good (I have the black
one, my unfortunate friend is stuck with the silver one)the camera quality
is outstanding, it's easy to use, there's tonnes of storage thanks to
the 64meg "memory stick duo" that comes with it. I almost made the mistake
of going for the Nokia 6680, but my providers have not had it in stock
for over a month. Man, was I lucky to get away with that one! The K750i
rocks... The best phone I've ever had by a mile!

i fully agree with Dom that se is loads better than nokia. all nokia
do is use old software and technology and put it in their new fones
which have (what nokia think) funky cases.this fone (k750i) is packed
full of features and i hope to replace my trusty (but old and beaten)
t610 with this fone. the camera looks totally awesome from the pics
that i have seen on the net and the mem. card included is great for
storing all those mp3's. i have already submitted a review for this
fone but i want to show that this fone rules and nokia should make some
better fones be4 we can take them as a serious threat to se. cheers

Got the phone 2 weeks ago - superb purchase. Only one gripe though.
The message tones are too short. I have several MP3 and AMR files over
15 seconds long but they only play for about 10 seconds, along with
the factory stored sounds when used as message alerts. Does anyone know
of a fix to get around this? I tried contacting the SE support centre
but got bored after waiting for 15 minutes. Any suggestions on how to
overcome this problem would be greatly received

is just not compatible with the Virgin software.Although i also went
to my local 02 shop who also told me they had stopped selling it until
the end of June due to software problems apart from that the menu was
a bit longwinded to get to certain places,good mp3,excellent camera.Also

I note that a load of you people are trying to down the SE against Nokias...
you really are a bunch of fools. The industry knows that Nokia are shocking.
How many phone sales-people do you know who own one? The Nokia menu
system is utter rubbish compared with the SE. Nokias consistently fall
on their bottom when you try hooking them up to a pc, no matter how
you do it. I've never had any trouble with a SE and haven't started
now. Any of you fools who are sticking up for the nokias against this
GOD of a phone are simply displaying your envy because you made the
wrong choice. Let's face it - the partner companies (i.e. Sony and Ericsson)
have been market leaders in their respective industries for ages. The
pairing of the two is undoubtedly going to produce amazing results.
Take Nokia on the other hand... let's look at their network equipment.
Nokia have spent virtually their entire existence working on cellular
comms, yet they still consistently underperform. Orange used to have
great coverage, probably the best in the UK at some points, but their
nokia hardware lets them down time after time. I'd never buy a pansy
little "ooo-let-me-change-the-cover-on-my-toy" nokia. They pale in comparison.
Do not molest this review with them.

Why isn't there a subsection for the T-Mobile equivalent of the K750i
i.e. the D750i? Anyhow before I start I'd like to say something to the
lady by the name of Kat who posted further down the page. I believe
you gave the phone 4 stars cos the camera ain't working after you DROPPED
it. Now that is very narrow-minded of you to do such a thing. It's as
if you've thrown a brick through a window and you're blaming the window
for having broken and not yourself for having thrown the brick in the
1st place. If you can't treat something of delicate technology with
respect then how to you expect it to work??? And then having the nerve
to give the phone a 4 star rating cos its supposed to be built for a
person who likes dropping stuff? Puhhhleeeeze. I'm just being honest
here and I know other readers will agree with me. Back to the phone
itself. ALL new phones always have some issues. The day they make a
PERFECT phone we'll be GODS! Get used to the fact that when you buy
something new, integrating so much stuff into a small package, you're
always bound to stumble on something wrong UNLESS you're like Nokia
who tend to play it safe and only "merely" upgrade their existing models
before they stump up enough courage to come up with something RADICALLY
NEW ON THE INSIDE. Funky covers, sir/madame? No thank you Nokia. I am
now the proud owner of 2 D750is (Silver K750is for you non-T-Mobile
customers) which has got to be a contender for mobile of the year. Solidly
built with a 2 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom complete with flash
(or photolight as its known), mp3 (and several other formats)support,
fully customisable (bar the fascias - can't have everything in life
you know!), 252k colour screen, Bluetooth and InfraRed connectivity,
comes with a USB datacable, RDS radio with Sony's tradmark Mega Bass
plus customisable equalizer, video capture, internal memory of about
30MB (i.e. minus the memory already in use by the phone - total would
be 34MB or so) and a 64MB MemoryStick PRO Duo (rumours have it that
it will accept up to 4GB MemorySticks that have yet to be unveiled -
the biggest so far are 2GB from SanDisk and they cost a bomb!), 40 polyphonic
voices (not as much as Samsung's but still good nevertheless), tri-band,
3-D games, etc With SO many features packed into the size of a candybar
you just have to marvel at the engineers and designers for having created
a piece of technological wonder. For any1 who's got an old SonyEricsson
you must realise that the interface at the bottom has changed so your
old chargers (and anything similar) are NO longer compatible. You have
been warned! There will also be a costlier model of the same specs called
the W800 which will be packaged with a 512MB MemoryStick and aimed @
music lovers. If you're one of them you may well consider waiting for
one of those and perhaps by then SE would've ironed out all the flaws
every1 seems to be complaining about EXCEPT for damage caused by clumsy
users who believe SonyEricsson phones should be close to the definitions
of "indestructible" and "flawless" I may sound like a SE fan but I'm
not. I've owned phones from Siemens (boring), Nokia (who hasn't it?)
SE (the P800 and T610 were shoddy but then they were the 1st of their
kind), came close to owning a Samsung D500 but decided to wait for the
new SonyEricsson and I currently have a Razr V3 from Motorola and I've
got to say that SonyEricsson have done themselves proud with this ALL-ROUND
phone that is great for the average consumer. Be you a music lover,
business person (who doesn't demand too much for his/her phone - get
a PDA if you do!), casual talker, amateur photographer, feature geek
then this phone is FOR YOU! Buy IT NOW BEFORE every1 has one! Remember
that this IS A PHONE. Don't come crying that some of its features aren't
up to scratch. Want top class games? Get a Sony PS3 nxt yr. Want a wicked
digital camera? Go look at Canon's +6 Megapixel cameras. A hardcore
music junkie? Get an iPOD. Want beautiful digital videos? Look elsewhere!
The PRIMARY function of this device is to call and receive calls from
people. Everything else is secondary but upto an acceptable standard.
There is only so much they can fit into a small package and we must
be grateful for wot they've achieved (at an affordable price too I must
add!). Not happy? Try to come up with something better than them then!

Ok kids, here’s my two-penny’s worth. I have had umpteen
phones over the years. I had the ubiquitous Nokia 3330 and then upgraded
to a Sony CMD-J5 (Remember them?). Since them I have had Sony Ericsson
T300, Z600 and I currently have a k750i. I say currently as I am still
waiting for my K750i from O2. Apparently these have been so popular
that they sold out in a week! As you will have noticed I am a bit of
a fan of Sony Ericsson. Why? Because for starters, they are so damn
good that’s why. The second thing I really like about them is
the menu structure. The only people that cannot understand the menus
on a SE phone are either Nokia owners (don’t get me started on
them) or people who bemoan the introduction of Windows and lament the
day that we stopped using DOS prompts. Wake up and smell the coffee
kids! There is no reason why we should be still putting up with interfaces
like the pedestrian Nokia style, the inferior Samsung type or the clearly
infuriating Motorola interface. In fact have you how these other manufacturers
have tried to emulate the SE menus? The third thing I like about them
is that you can customise them. Now I am not talking about some crappy
plastic cover with Man Utd on it. No I am talking about customising
the look of the screens and ringtones etc. I particularly like the use
of themes. But one of the best things about Sony Ericsson phones is
the absolute ease that pics/sounds/videos can be moved on and off of
the phone. Sure many other phones can do this but as far as my little
experience goes, SE were way ahead of anyone on this. I really hope
that my new (when it turns up) is the k700’s big brother as this
was the best of its day without exception. Of course SE phones have
their problems, what phone doesn’t? What other device that has
this level of sophistication doesn’t have its odd little moments
now and again? Sure the cameras may have been a bit bette r on some
other model (I doubt that this will be the case on the k750i though);
go and buy a bloody camera then! So the mp3 player is lacking in features;
go and buy an iPod then (actually buy a Creative Zen but that’s
a different story). At the end of the day it’s a phone; any thing
is a bonus. And SE’s bonuses are much nicer than anyone else’s!!!!!
Of course if you want a phone that never goes wrong then get a Nokia
3330, but you will have one of the dullest and boring phones ever, in
fact if you buy any Nokia you will basically have just an updated version
of this phone. Nokia’s idea of innovation is to put a phone in
a weird shaped shell and screw up the button layout; big wow! SE doesn’t
have to resort to such outlandish and often ridiculous gimmicks to sell
their phones. SE knows that quality products will sell themselves. Someone
complained about the fact that the new power supply uses a different
adaptor plug. A bout time too! This was they ONLY thing that used to
annoy about SE phones. To end this rant (thank God I hear you cry) I
cannot wait for my SE K750i to arrive. Sony Ericsson has never failed
to impress me over the years and have never let me down yet. I do not
expect them to start now. (The only eason why I haven't given it 5 Stars
is that I haven't got it yet!!! SE get 4 stars just for releasing it
HA HA HA!) WATCH THIS SPACE………….

The multimedia capabilities of the K750i are exceptional for such a
small, solidly built device, the phone itself measures a very respectable
100 x 46 x 20.5 mm. With an in-built modem, Infra Red, Bluetooth, FM
Radio, MP3, MP4 and video file playback capabilities, the list is even
more impressive considering its diminutive size. A very high quality
screen rounds off the handset nicely, 170 x 200 pixels in size, with
a colour depth of 262,144 colours the K750i represents an excellent
all round package. Featuring a 2 mega pixel integrated camera with extra
features such as 4x digital zoom, auto focus and ‘photo light’
(a flash to us mere mortals) the K750i has blatantly been designed to
meet the increasing demand for quality pictures on the move. Overall,
as someone who likes the Nokia menu system, I was truly surprised by
the progress Sony Ericsson has made in this department since the T610.
The ease of use of the menu system on the K750i had me hooked; it was
fast, slick and very pretty. The themes and animated wallpaper functions
were nice touches that gives each and every owner the chance to truly
personalise their K750i… If you are in the market for a new mobile
in the coming month’s then I would give serious consideration
to the K750i. It is an awesome phone and, in my opinion, the best on
the market at the moment. The likes of Nokia and Samsung should be quaking

I have had the S/E K750i for a week and I cannot find anything bad to
say about it. The camera is FANTASTIC, especially for macro shots...
you can view shots taken from it as a full screen computer image (once
downloaded to your pc) and they still look as sharp as any picture taken
on a digital camera. I upgraded on O2 from a Samsung E700, originally
to a K700i - which went back after a week as I found the camera and
battery life poor. The K750i put these niggles right and I'm not regretting
my decision to go for this rather than the Samsung E720 (it was the
radio feature, sadly lacking on the Samsung models, that swung it for
me). The call quality on the K750i is excellent and, despite my playing
with it nearly all day every day, I'm getting a good couple of days
out of the battery - which I expect to increase as the novelty of this
brilliant gadget wears off. There are too many features to crow about,
but the VideoDJ is a fun feature, allowing you to cut together clips
of v ideo and/or photos to a variety of themed soundtracks... hours
of endless fun for those bored thumbs! Having read through the previous

Okay I've now had this phone a wekk, following on from my trusty K700i,
a T630, a T610, T65 and T35 - seeing a pattern here? Okay the K750 is,
effectively, an upgraded K700 - so if you've used one of those phones
then nothing will be a surprise to you. The menus are virtually the
same, as is the spec: bluetooth, IRDA, tri-band etc all present and
correct. What has been improved is the screen (which is even better
than the k700 - a screen that was a HUGE improvement over the T630/610s)
which now boasts 256k colours and a faster update (even in Night mode
on the camera) and the camera which is now up to a full 2.0 Megapixels,
has autofocus (as opposed to fixed focus)a 4x digital zoom (that actually
works this time)and a truly superb flash bulb. We also gain a working
speaker phone which is useful, but not good enough for the car and a
memory stick to store your pics/MP3s on. We also have a new cancel and
return button which improve navigation and a shortcuts button which
is sort of useful... Problems noticed so far: The keypad has to be manually
locked each time, which means you can accidentally dial out of you are
not careful (there may be a setting that fixes this, but I haven't found
it yet) and, most annoying of all, I don't seem to be able to get the
phone to show me who is ccalling, instead it only shows me the number.
again there may be a menu fix for this, but if there is I still haven't
found it yet. Another minor grumble is the change of the interface at
the bottom of the phone, which means your old chargers and peripherals
won't fit. However this is the first change to this connection in my
entire time with Ericsson (now some six years) so it is not really a
grumble. I have an Ericsson HBH-600 hands free and it synched up easily
via Bluetooth. I still have problems getting the phone to connect to
my PC, but that is a problem with my PC as none of the last four phones
have connected happily (though they all do to my laptop). When you sync
your phone with your contacts, calendar and tasks in Outlook, the phone
is extremely powerful. Basically the K700 was the best phone on the
market at the time of its release, the K750 continues that trend. Reports
of short battery life should be taken with a pinch of salt as the K700's
battery needed to be charged and used a good dozen or so times before
it got near to the published specs. My K750 (without Bluetooth on) has
lasted five days on standby so far and has 25% power outstanding (I
have made about a dozen calls in that time of 1-2 mins each and sent
several texts) which I class as being good performance. To sum up, if
you like Sony Ericsson phones then this is a logical place to go (esp
with the free upgrade deals that are being bandied about). If you use
Nokia or Samsung, then I would strongly consider you take a close look
at the phone. The texting will work an odd way and the joystick will
take some getting used to, but the feature may well win you over. If
you used a siemens or LG then I strongly recommend you look at this
phone and realise what you are missing out on. IMHO this is the strongest
phone on the market this summer, it really is that good.

and it is camera. and it comes with datacable. Bad points: Keys don't
feel stable, text input is bitch, and with my nokia (7650) i could call
people out of the group window, that was fastest ever, but here only
dail from big contactlist. Good points: battery lasts week, yes? Phone
looks goods. Camera is nice, memory is nice, you can program shortcuts
for joystick moves, say, for calendar, or for silent mode, or for selecting
prrrrofile... I give four stars!

As a long-time Ericsson user, I am perhaps a little biased, but this
is an excellent phone let down by a few irritations. The four-way button
used on the T65 was far better than this annoying nipple that Sony introduced.
The keys used on the T65 have not been improved on in any SE incarnation
- sad, but true. And finally, there are a few issues that could easily
be resolved by the SE software authors. As some-one has mentioned, the
calender is not very flexible. The pop-up when texting in T9 is annoying
and a bit pointless. But that is about it. No phone-makers have managed
to improve the voice and sound quality in the quantum leaps that they
have managed with their cameras, but we all know that and -ironically,
since that is the primary function of these devices, we never moan too
load about it. If you do purchase a K750i, you will not be disappointed
- for everything else it does what it says on the box and it is a very
reasonably priced deal in the UK at this moment. Finally, a general
rant: I resent the insistence of providers that they 'customise' certain
aspects of a well thought-out unit. This is generally a fault of service
providers rather than the phone manufacturers and the manufacturers
must find it a bit annoying that months of hard work designing something
can be messed up by idiotic zealots in a marketing department. Funny
how often these customisations centre around making it difficult to
know when you are online, difficult to know how to get off line and
the fact that you arrived online with the push of a single button.

Top Phone, if you have huge files on there it can be prone to a bit
of a freeze when trying to access other files within that folder. Also
my backlight seems to stay on for too long when in clock stand by mode
(occasionally), also when left on overnight (once) it had a total freeze
in the morning requiring the battery to be taken out. Though i reckon
this will differ from phone to phone, possible bugs. Having a tiny bit
of trouble hitting the centre (joystick style) button every time, i.e.
it'll bring up a short cut rather than the main menu I wanted. Camera
qual in natural daylight is quite amazing, though may look into the
add on flash when it comes out as when its dusky quality reduces, but
to be expected. Especially for its size I think it has to be the best
phone you can currently get. There are always going to be tiny details
your not going to like on any phone but really minimal on this one.
I think the battery life is really good, obviously the more you play
with it the more you'll kill it. The speaker is good enough to listen
to MP3's on (in quiet areas). Buy one, or wait for the W800.

Come back Nokia, all is forgiven! I sent my Nokia 6230 back because
of a problem with the network and was advised by them to get a non-Nokia
phone to avoid the problem recurring. I chose the K750i because I thought
it would be a step up from the Nokia 6230, but with all the features
I rely on: camera, video, MP3 player, calendar. However, the user interface
is absolutely infuriating. I thought it would get better with practice
but it hasn't. It is hard to find things, the predictive text is really
in your face with all its pop-up prompts. I guess it's a case of "once
a Nokia user, always a Nokia user", for me anyway. The K750i's keys
are too small and the 2 key is even smaller. The thing that has made
me want my old 6230 back is the calendar: it would be easier to use
pen and paper. You can't store birthdays and memos, only "meetings"
with a defined start and finish time. You can't repeat events, whereas
I need to have things repeated daily, weekly, monthly or annually. To
be fair, I have given it a couple of extra stars because the camera
is AWESOME for a mobile phone. 2 megapixels, autofocus and 4x zoom make
it the best phone camera on the market. But I have a separate digital
camera anyway for hi-res shots. When you use the camera on this phone,
you can bypass the menu system by just sliding off the lens cap and
pressing a button on the side - feels like using an ordinary camera.
Very quick and easy. If only they had made the other features so easy
to use. For the price, I am very surprised. I can't wait to get rid
of this, and will try the Nokia 6230i. Despite Nokia's problems, I guess
they are just a lot more user-friendly.

I have used the k750i for quite short time yet. Within the period, I
have not experienced any problems with the phone. It is exelent quality,
easy to use, quite modern technology, but a few to mention. I strongly
recommend that try it for your self and you will never regret. My only
fear is the battery which I think maybe with a short life span. And
again as a new phone on the market it may not be easy to get other accessories
for the phone.

This is probably the best phone i have had to date, and I must've had
hundreds. Last phone was a Samsung D500, and for picture quality it
is far superior. Music plays superb on the phone, radio is also very
clear. Only one prob, and it is very rare, but sometimes the movies
become out of sync with the sound. Apart from that A******

Had this phone a few weeks now, very easy phone to use, excellent menus,
and loads of features. The camera is really good, a lot better than
my d500 and my old 6230. The joystick is taking a little getting used
to, i so used to the nokia way, but you pick it up fast. Def prefer
this to the d500, especially for texting. The radio and mp3 are hi quality,
and I defo getting a nice large 1 or 2 gig mem stick to use it as a
mp3 player. The phone is small and light, but not too small if u a regular
texter. Down sides ... well the screen is not as bright as the d500
but is still very hi quality, and easy to read. Phone comes with usb
cable and software ... awesome phone, you wont be dissapointed.
