Sony Ericsson K800i review
| ||Review: September 2006
Last updated July 2009
In a nutshell: One of the best camera phones ever made, the K800i is a 3G phone combined with a Cyber-Shot camera.
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!

I got this phone off my Dad after he had had it for roughly two years. I had
this phone for three years and it still works, despite being dropped down stairs,
in mud, in snow, and being chewed by the dog. Its a bit battered but still works
perfectly. Eve if I have a new phone now, I still use it as a backup phone,
and still find it to be in perfect working condition :)

nearly 5 years on since buying mine and it's still going strong, the camera
quality is still a match for a lot of the 5 and 8mp camera phones 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 past.
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.
You can pick up a tatty but fully working one on ebay for 25 quid and still
have a decent camera phone that's going to be working in 12 months time, and
that's 5 years since they were made.

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!!
Reviewed by Rob from UK on 10th Aug 2006
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
Reviewed by Justin from Wales on 10th Aug 2006
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!!

Reviewed by Marc from England on 9th Aug 2006
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 now and
I am still finding little extra's that make this phone different 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!!

Stunning! Heres why: Screen very clear. Nice and big and very bright. Great

reproduced. Nice lenscap to keep the lens clean. Music quality just as good
as the W series. In fact I'm sitting here listening to bon jovi playing on the
phones external speaker. Amazing fidelity for 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 level.

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

Iv'e had the phone roughly a month now, the camera is top notch with a real

best thing of all is the amazing battery life, playing mp3 tracks for 7 hours
and the battery only went down 100% to 80%.....WOW..that included a 10 min call
also. I would give it 5 stars but I have a couple of minor issues with the phone:
The camera lens cover is way too slack, it slides open all the time in my pocket
activating the camera. The screen needs protecting, I prefer flip phones for
that, screen also isn't as good as the motorola v3x. But I would def recommend
this phone just for it's features & battery life alone.

Despite being a top class phone, i have to say i was dissapointed when it arrived.
What i can not stand is the way every corner is at a right angle. Why not have
curves for a smoother look. Also, after being used to Samsung flip phones and
slider phones, the size of the phone is a bit off putting. Put the phone in
the Sony Ericsson case and its like carrying a house brick. Awesome features
cant be denied, but i think i am going to have to return it.

This camera is excellent. The features allow you to take photos in different

Nice phone, shame about the software This phone was supplied as an 'upgrade'
to my trusty K750 which has stood up well to some surprisily hard knocks. The
first thing I wanted to do was transfer all the contacts from the 750 to this
phone, could I do it? Could I hell. Not only does the K800 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 tearing my hair out I shall be sending this phone back.

Some years ago I swapped to Sony Ericsson from NOKIA and have never looked back.
Do not believe all the rubbish written about NOKIA software 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. FOOOTNOTE to Sony: Please
keep developing - I am waiting for something this size which can use QuickOffice
so I can see PowerPoints, Word and Excel documents. Plus I would like a pdf

have out done themselves this time. The 3.2 mega pixel camera is mind blowing
with all its features, the way you are able to take such grate photos and still
be able to fiddle about with the image itself. But with every phone it has its
letdowns and it was all down to the pc suite, at first I thought maybe the pc
suite C.D does not work so. So I decided to download the software but still
I was having the same problem. After researching upon the matter I realized
that many people have had the exact same problem. Other than that the phone

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, and it is a joy to use. Definitely the best mobile phone released

ease of use ( it didn't take long to get used to the navigation ) and the superior
photo quality. The large screen is 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 does not work and as I browse the internet for solutions
all I find 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 PC suite
but it just won't work. So generally I am happy with the phone but very disappointed
with the PC Software and functions which hinder 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.

This is my first ever contract phone, so never had the opportunity to own a

Nokia RinGo, so this was going to be a new adventure for me......well what can
I say, absolutley amazing, the camera quality is fantastic, I have to agree
with some reviews on the quality of the video, but that's what digital camcorders
are for, so not really bothered about it. If you've got big fingers like me
the buttons can feel a little awkward to press, I will get use to it, so I can
live with that. Iv'e owned the phone for 14 hrs now, and I'm getting the hang
of navigating the phone, love the navigation key, what a brilliant idea. So.........I
would definately recommend this phone, if like me you are going to be new to
Sony Ericsson, don't worry, YOU WILL NOT be dissapointed!!!! 10/10

I've had this phone for a week and its been great. I've upgraded from a Motorola
V3 which i really only liked because of its looks. This k800i is something else,
the camera is superior, loads of different themes to choose from and the radio
is great plus its 3g. However I do admit the video is not so good, its ok, buts
its a dissapointment. The build quailty of this phone is brilliant, it looks
and feels expensive. The camera cover i don't think was the best design and
it scratches easily but who cares really. The memory i think is a little weak
which is why i bought a 1GB memory card for it so thats plenty. The screen is
amazing compared to some of the other phones i've seen on the market, its very
bright and clear, u can actually see it outside in the day. Some people say
that they find the key pad is difficult to use to text, but it think its fine.
Overall a excellent phone!! Arguably the best around!!

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!

to this phone is u dont get a memory card with it its larger than previous models.
and the torch light is not included like in k750i which was amazing. the camera

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.

I am another of these people who likes to change his phone every year and up

not being familiar with the joystick use or the menu I found it very easy to

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

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

camera is just superb, i no longer need to take a digital or normal camera with
me anywhere (To gigs etc) as the 3.2Mp camera on this phone is crystal clear.
The screen is a superb size and the quality and colours produced are comparable

of the phone is very good considering all the features it posseses and will
easily fit into any pocket as it is very slim and only slightly larger than
the K750. All i can say is that i highly recommend this phone to anyone! I personally
was not bothered about whether or not it could play music, but with the option
