Sony Ericsson K800i Review
In a nutshell: One of the best camera phones ever released,
incorporating a 3.2 megapixel Cyber-Shot camera with autofocus
and a bright xenon flash. Also comes with a music player, 3G video calling,
expandable memory and wireless Bluetooth connectivity. The K800i can
be your digital camera and MP3 player as well as a mobile phone. The
only downside is that it's a bit heavy and bricklike.
Review: September 2006. Last updated July 2009.
The Sony Ericsson K800i is the first 3G phone in Sony Ericsson's Cyber-Shot
range of camera phones. It's the best of the Cyber-Shot phones so far,
and in our opinion, the best camera phone available in the UK at the
time of release.
Whilst large and a little brick-like, the K800i is beautifully built
and finished. It's clearly a solidly constructed phone that should last
well. The design is traditional and a bit square, but very nicely finished.
The back of the phone shares many design features with the Cyber-Shot
camera range and looks more like a camera than a phone. There's a cover
for the camera lens, and annoyingly this has a habit of sliding off
when the phone is in a bag or pocket, causing the camera to activate
by itself. The keypad is well designed and easy to use, although the
keys are quite small and may not suit someone with large fingers. The
screen is large (2.0 inches) and of superb quality. The phone is heavier
than average at 115g, but this isn't heavy for a 3G phone, and heavy
phones are better at taking pictures because there is less camera shake.
At 3.2 megapixels, the K800i's camera has the highest resolution available
at the time of writing (August 2006), but its the quality of the optics
that really determines the quality of a camera, and the K800i doesn't
disappoint. With autofocus and a real xenon flash (most camera phones
have a weaker LCD flash that leads to poor exposure and red-eye), the
K800i is a real digital camera, not just a toy. Picture quality is very
impressive indeed, and is a match for many dedicated digital cameras.
The K800i comes with a novel feature called BestPic. BestPic takes
nine pictures at a time, enabling you to choose the best. There's also
a picture stabiliser, helping to eliminate camera shake. Naturally the
K800i supports direct printing on PictBridge compatible printers, so
you don't need a computer in order to print your pictures.
There's also a video camera, which also makes use of the picture stabiliser,
helping to avoid shaky videos. It's not the best video camera around
however, which is disappointing given the outstanding quality of the
still camera. A video editor is included, so that you can edit videos
on the phone. A second video camera is used for 3G video calling.
The music player on the K800i is of very good quality. It's an easy-to-use
player that supports playlists. There's also a stereo RDS FM radio.
Sound quality by the built-in speakers is good, but doesn't match that
of the Sony Ericsson W900i. Stereo
output to a normal or wireless
headset via Bluetooth is supported.
As well as its outstanding camera and excellent music capabilities,
the K800i is a genuine all-rounder. 3G enables 2-way video calling,
fast music & video downloads and business applications such as email
(although there's no Office document viewer). The K800i supports genuine
multitasking, enabling you to talk and access other functions at the
same time. A sophisticated web browser is built into the phone, displaying
web pages with images as they look on a computer. You can subscribe
to RSS feeds from your phone to get news, etc, and you can blog from
your phone too. The K800i can act as a broadband connection for your
PC, connecting via USB cable or wirelessly by Bluetooth.
The K800i is compatible with the Memory
Stick Micro (M2), enabling its memory to be increased
to 1 Gbyte or more ( no memory stick is supplied in the sales package).
This gives plenty of space for storing music and video. A wide range
of connectivity options are available - Bluetooth, USB mass storage,
infrared and Fastport (for connecting a charger, portable handsfree,
cable or other accessory) - everything except WiFi in fact. Battery
life is excellent for a 3G phone.
The K800i is an excellent mobile. Not only was it the best camera phone
around at the time of release, but it's a good all-rounder. There are
a few things missing, such as wi-fi and a document viewer, but there's
no doubting that this is still a great phone from Sony Ericsson. Disadvantages
include the large size, fiddly keypad, and the camera cover that slides
off too easily. A bigger irritation is the PC software that is supplied
with the phone - this is difficult to install and needs to be addressed
by Sony Ericsson in future releases. But definitely a classic and one
of our all-time favourites!
Features of the Sony Ericsson K800i include:
- 3G video calling
- 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, xenon flash and 16x digital
- Video recorder (164 x 144 pixels, 15 frames per second)

nearly 5 years on since buying mine and it's still going strong, the

made today and that is done to the quality of the optics. phones today
are now being made on a tighter budget and longevity is a thing of the
Mine is a rock solid work horse, only things i dislike are no standard
headphone socket in the phone, meaning you have to use there own strange
little adapter to plug in headphones.

I've always been a Nokia user, and have been daunted by the thought
of changing phone brands, especially since Nokia is renowned for it's
great user friendliness. However, after gettting the k800i, i dare say
that Sony Ericsson has come a long way, and maybe even surpassed Nokia.
In short, the features of the k800i: Good camera with real flash. Though
the protruding lens cover is prone to sliding open in your pocket. Very
large, clear, and bright screen. Nice user interface and menus. Easy
to use. Good organiser (calendar, alarms, etc.) Nice bundled software
(Facewarp, 3D games) What attracts me to phones are its features, and
this phone has most of the features u could want. Cons: Battery life
seems shorter than what is advertised. Don't know if it's the network
(3), but signal drops off and on, sometimes goes to roaming. Would like
a PDF viewer. Phone does not come bundled with an external memory card.

Great phone, had it about a month and i love it. It is larger than my
last phone which was the K750i but i don't care as the screen is so
much better and the camera really is amazing! I've tried the 3G and
its quite good, one of the best i've seen and working for a video conferencing
company, i've seen a few! The only thing i would say is that the camera
cover does slide off very easily exposing the camera a lot, but it's
not a massive thing. Apart from that i love it and i'm really glad i
went for another Sony Ericsson as an upgrade!!

Overall, a very impressive phone! The image quality from the camera
is fantastic, and mp3 playback through the provided headphones is impressive,
though bass is predictably weak when using the inbuilt speaker. The
menus are very clear and easy to navigate, and the screen is just beautiful
- very bright and sharp. Some people have complained about the size
of the phone, but it's quite easy to find the handset dimensions on
the internet, or even go into a shop and look at one. I agree that the
styling may be a little 'boxy' for some, but it's growing on me and
I quite like the contrast of the angular face with the more gently curving
sides. If you're surprised by the physical appearance when it arrives,
you haven't done your research properly! As some people have noted,
the software installation is a little cumbersome, as you have to rely
on windows XP repeatedly 'detecting new hardware' and prompting you
to install drivers - a good half a dozen times in all. However, once
installed, it worked perfectly for me. The only real complaint I have
is about battery life - as I type this it's at less than 5%, having
only been charged 30hrs ago. In that time I've used it for perhaps 20mins
in camera mode, 30mins in mp3 playback mode, and about 4hrs in phone
mode (creating address book entries, text messages etc). As most other
reviewers have praised the battery life, I expect that in my case this
is just due to a faulty battery, or maybe there's some standby setting
I haven't discovered yet.

Had this phone for a week and took it back and exchanged for a Samsung
D900. Reasons why - The phone is like a brick, the camera lens cover
is pathetic even with keylock on if you have it in your pocket this
opens it activates the camera causing your battery to wear down, the
keypad is small and is a nightmare. To be fair the camera is superb
hence the 2 stars. My advice take the D900 over the K800i anyday!!

This is an attractive, well balanced (ie nice to hold) phone. The screen
is excellent, the camera good for a mobile although no match for a 3MP
compact camera. Sound quality is amazing, calls are really clear. The
supplied headphones are good although it would have been preferable
if you could plug in your own. The software is vastly improved on previous
Sony's. Integration and syncing with Outlook is spot on. I could at
a pinch ditch my PDA and use this instead. The downside are simply the
buttons are far too small. I don't have overlarge fingers but you almost
need to use a stylus to operate some of them. Sony have retained the
'nipple' joystick control. It is very easy to select the wrong option
when using it. Although the screen is very clear, it is difficult to
see in bright sunlight - a problem I encountered with the T610 a few
years ago. I've decided to return it and exchange it for a Samsung D900,
which is probably the best phone available at the moment.

This phone is absolutely outstanding. I have had this phone for a week

from the rest, for example, there is two buttons next to the speaker
at the top of the phone and the 3.2 MEGA PIXEL CAMERA has a cover, a
flash and auto focus. But moving onto the overall performance of the
phone, now I seem to notice that this phone is very quick for a 3G phone
and it is very light weight aswell. But as an overall of the phone is
has everything an 11 year - old like me needs!!

such a small gadget. Software: practically everything is updatable.
This doesn't stop the phone from being easy to use though. Features:
This phone has everything. Negative points: Very few. Some people may
not like the joystick so try before you buy. Also it's not the smallest
phone so if you want to slip this into your bikini pockets you may have
problems. The whelth of features can be a bit daunting at first. To
sum up, this is a freaking awsome phone. It takes phones to the next

Well after reading some of the reviews on here, I wasn't quite sure
whether to get this. I previously had a Nokia 6680 which I had grown
tired of. I can only assume that the reason everyones reviews are so
different is that people have different needs in a phone. For me, features
are what attract me to a phone, and this one has many. Firstly, its
main selling point is the camera which is very very good, the quality
is high and there are loads of features and options when taking pictures,
plus editing tools. The screen is very good quality, and clear. Games
are also very good, 3D etc. There are however a few features that it
does not have which I liked about the Nokia including: Profiles cannot
be set with different ring tones, battery life isn't as good, and umm
thats about it.

refuse to acknowledge the contacts on the SIM card, when I tried the
'Communication Suite' on the accompanying CD, although it read the data
from the 750, it refused to acknowledge the 800 and the contact data
was left steadfastly marooned in Outlook. What a load of rubbish. As
other users have indicated, the software is slow, overly elaborate and
unreliable. If I can't get the software to work after another night's

Some years ago I swapped to Sony Ericsson from NOKIA and have never

being better..... it is simply what you are used to. When I got my first
Sony Ericsson (T610) I found their software to be more intuitive and
better integrated with Windows. This is still the case! The K800i -
as an upgrade of the K750i- does the job very well. I chose over W810i
because of 3G compatibility. Camera - Amazing: the best RSS feed- really
useful and wroks well Email- efficient for a phone and easy to set up
MP3- satisfactory and the Disc2Phone software works well USB connection-
satisfactory Useability of keys- OK but slightly worse than K750i due
to the keys being crammed at bottom of display. But the display is incredible-
so hey, waddya want? Internet- fabulous..... I love the way you can
rotate the image to landscape and zoom. And It displays virtually all
pages logically optimised for mobile phone. Oh and it is fast. Speaker-
OK video hpne - don't know yet- nobody I know has got a video phone
yet. Oh and finally- YES it is a good functional phone with decent reception.

After waiting 3 years for a phone to 'wow' me as much as the Nokia 6230
did when it came out, the K800i is exactly what the mobile community
needed to take phones to the next level. Nokia have lost the plot over
the last 3 years, not being able to compete with Samsung's good looking
phones, or Sony Ericsson's technological advances, but they always held
their own when it came to reliability and useability. With the K800i,
Sony Ericsson have (for me) properly come of age as the premier mobile
phone makers, this phone has everything you could want, and is the first
phone to bridge the phone/camera gap without making it feel gimmicky,

attractive and bright and the phone is neat and compact. BUT what is
the deal with the PC suite. The software is rubbish, the USB connection

is complaints from people having the same problems. I loved the idea
of drag and drop songs from audio CD's to the K800i's MP3 using the

the ability of the phone.

Being used to the perfectly sized K750 for the last 12months it was
a bit of a shock to receive this little monster through the post. Sure
it has updated features and cybershot functions but it is nowhere as
pocketable as the K750. Overall usability is much worse with the keypad
being too far down the bottom and the bulk of the weight located at
the top half where the display is so it's quite a strain on your hand
if you're a heavy texter like me. The lens cover sticking out is also
a nuisance and makes it uncomfortable to hold the phone for too long.
I exchanged it for the W810 and havent looked back.

awkward to press, I will get use to it, so I can live with that. Iv'e

I like the K800 but it is not perfect. It is to do with the software
enabling connection with a PC. The CD did not work and the one I downloaded
has a problem with synchronisation. The worst is that when synchronising
the phone erased the data on my PC calendar before May 06. ANother irritating
problem, any recurring appt on my PC (I use Outlook) is duplicated each
time I synchronise. I am keeping the phone because of its other qualities
but I hope that Sony Eriksson will upgrade the software. If data older
than 3 months cannot be downloaded, that's fine but we should be told.
When synchronising again, there should be a warning and we should be
given a chance to stop erasing data on the PC! If recurring appts are
not acceptable, we should be told too. There may be other problems but
I have stopped synchronising for the time being!

I previously owned the w800i which i quite liked, but i expected a lot
more from the k800i. To be honest there isn't really much of a difference;
and i feel as though i should have waited a bit longer for some of the
phones being released later this year. Good points; The 3.2mp camera
is very impressive, as is the autofocus, and best pic function. Loads
of different settings, with self timer, metering mode, white balance;
definitely a step up from all other existing camera phones. (one annyoning
point is the protruding camera shutter, which means the back of the
phone is not level; can get annoying!) The phone menu i find is very
easy to use and navigate, lots of shortcuts make it easy to use. Music
shortcut key (as on w800i). Also dedicated shortcut keys to look at
the picture album. Video calling on this phone is impressive, but can
be expensive. The look of this phone will obvioulsy appeal more to people
as well (as opposed to the w800i which really stood out!) Bad points;
I hated the software that came with the w800i and unfortuanately it
also comes with this phone. The usb conncection is slow and unreliable,
d2p is simply rubbish and very limited in terms of what you can do.
The earphones supplied are much worse than those that came with the
w800i! No memory card supplied, and a 1gb i recently bought cost me
£60! The battery life is drained very quickly when using the camera
or mp3. Overall i would say the camera is fantastic, the mp3 is tosh,
and the rest is simply average.

Who's a happy chappy then. I've had this phone 2 days but only had time
to really play with it today. My history: I've upgraded from an N70
after being a diehard Nokia user since about the analogue 101, and on
digital since the Nokia 4.0 on Orange. I had a year break on a Motorola
Startac and hated the menu/OS so badly that going to a Nokia702 was
a joy. After upgrading from a 6230 to an N70, my marriage to Nokia took
a serious blow, and I started fantasizing about other phones. God job
I read the reviews here cos Orange let me upgrade early FOC to the K800i,
my first Sony and my goodness it's a joy. After the N70's clunky Sybian,
this was almost like going back to the ease of use of an older Nokia,
but with more capabilities, natch. The camera is stunning and still
to be tested fully; the only time it did not impress was in poor lighting
over a fair distance (kids school play), but macro pics are astonishing.
I was unable to import my contacts easily from Nokia software to Sony,
but it seems the Nokia software caused the most difficulties. I've always
been happy with the sound on Nokias, but now this SE has put them to
shame. I could go on all night but consider this; I've read the reviews
on this site for the last 2 years at least to help me choose upgrades.
This is the first phone that has actually made me want to write a review
in its praise here. It's worth it. So are you.... get one!!!111!!1!

it takes too long to pick which 1 you want and hardly makes a difference
anyway) but WHAT HAPPENED TO THE VIDEO QUALITY?!?!?! the video it takes
is almost half the size of my w900i videos and plays at only 10fps (considerable
loss to the 30fps of my w900i!) other than that, it's a pretty good

Had the k800 a couple of weeks now and while it is a very good phone
there a a few things to irritate.In it's favour - the screen is big
bright and clear. The camera is amazing which can be used effectively
on auto but has numerous other settings for lots of control. The RDS
radio is very good too with the supplied headphones giving great sound.The
joy stick is easy to use. The short cuts to silent mode or other applications
and settings is good too. Not so good - the headphones can only be used
to answer/end incoming calls. Unlike my previous Nokias which can also
scroll thru preset radio stations or mp3's or be used to make voice
activated calls. This is a pay more option from Sony E. The camera lens
cover seems a little flimsy and can too easily be opened accidentaly.
They seemed to have a better system on the older phones. Shame also
there was not a memory card included, though the phone memory is quite
generous. While ok the organiser is not as nearly as easy to use nor
has as good options as the Nokia 6230 had. The key pad is not the best
for texting but does have very easy access to turning the predictive
function on and off. Overall, really a very good phone indeed but with
a few minor adjustments could have been an awesome phone.
