Sony Ericsson K810i review

 Review: May 2007  

Last updated June 2009


In a nutshell: An outstanding 3G camera phone.


The Sony Ericsson K810i Cyber-shot™ is virtually the same as the hugely successful and best-selling K800i. The two key differences are that the K810i is slimmer - 17mm instead of 22mm - and that the buttons have a new design. It's good to see that the phone is smaller and lighter, since that was one of the main complaints about the K800i. However, the new keypad has small circular buttons that are quite widely separated and are not obviously an improvement over the old keypad design. Perversely, Sony Ericsson have kept the fiddly joystick that really should have been changed.

Apart from these cosmetic modifications, not much has changed in the year since the launch of the K800i. Its photographic capabilities are the same as the K800i. In other words it's one of the best camera phones currently available. The camera is 3.2 megapixels with autofocus (to enable your images to be sharper), a powerful xenon flash (better than the weak LCD flashes used on most phones), high quality optics (as you'd expect from Sony, one of the leading makers of digital cameras) and a 16x digital zoom. One new feature is something that Sony Ericsson call "Photo fix", which adjusts the light balance, brightness and contrast of the image - a useful feature if you don't have access to image-editing software on a PC. The camera also has Sony Ericsson's BestPic™ feature which lets you automatically take nine photos in a second, so that you can choose the best one to keep - handy for moving subjects. There's also a picture stabiliser, which helps to reduce camera shake. One design improvement is that the camera cover is now recessed, avoiding the problem that the K800i had with the lens cover sliding off. The video camera is also of excellent quality, recording at QVGA resolution. A video editor is included, so that you can edit videos on the phone.

The screen resolution is the same as the K800i, and is standard for high-end phones at 320 x 240 pixels and 262k colours. It's an excellent display.

In addition to the photographic capabilities, the K810i is also an excellent performer in other areas. It has a built-in music player that supports MP3, AAC/AAC+/eAAC+ and WMA formats, and also a stereo RDS FM radio. Audio quality is good, especially using the supplied headphones or an optional Bluetooth wireless stereo headset. It's also possible to buy an adaptor to plug in standard 3.5mm headphones.

The K810i is a 3G phone, and supports video calling as well as high speed downloads at up to up to 384 kbps. In common with the K800i, there's no EDGE capability, so 2G data transfer speeds are slow. Internal memory is a reasonable 64 Mbytes (enough for around 16 music tracks), so you'll want to buy a Memory Stick Micro™ card, which are available in sizes up to 2 Gbytes. Battery life is excellent for a 3G phone.

In conclusion, the K810i is an excellent phone, and offers a lighter, slimmer alternative to the K800i. Both are outstanding camera phones, with near identical functionality, but cosmetic differences. The K810i is retailing at higher prices than the K800i, so if cost is an issue choose the K800i. If you want to stand out from the crowd with a newer thinner phone, choose the K810i. The new K850i offers a 5 megapixel camera. Update: the K810i is now obsolete, but the next blockbuster camera phone from SE will be the Sony Ericsson Satio, expected in October 2009.

Sony Ericsson K810i features include:

  • 3G video calling
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, xenon flash and 16x digital zoom
  • Video recorder (164 x 144 pixels, 30 frames per second)

  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, Email
  • Speakerphone
  • Sound recorder
  • 3D Java games
  • Web browser with RSS feeds & picture blogging
  • Flight mode
  • Personal organiser, File Manager, Phonebook
  • Memory: 64 Mbytes plus Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) support
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB mass storage, Fastport, Infrared

Good phone but with errors occuring easily. I've seen many threads about errors on their k800i / k810i, and my mom is one of the 'victims'. She did not modify the phone or anything (uses it for calling, sms, and camera only) but after using it around 1-2 years, the menu occured some errors (apps cant be saved, camera won't launch, and sms not working)

Dude, this model ain't the dream model you're looking for... Its got a bad IC problem... I bought this model a few months back only and to my horror, it started showing symptoms of software problem like the upper keys not functioning properly (Those beside joystick... Having a hell of a time with that, not able to edit messages, not able to cut the call!!) After taking it to a service centre, they said the IC got short due to exposure to water (sweat - The keypad is badly exposed so that a little rain or even the sweat while you talk can easily get inside the key pad and wreck havoc with your IC rendering it useless, you have to spend 10% of your investment to get it repaired it! ) I think its outta production now, even if it is not, please don't buy this model... Its for your own good! Thanks, Bubye, Chella

I've had this phone for 18 months on my contract now and it's one of the best phones I've ever had. I've had no problems with it whatsoever (apart from a memory card fault; but that was actually the memory card not the phone). The camera is relatively good, but it's obviously a bit old now as SE have just brought out an 8.1MP camera phone. The speakers are pretty loud, and it's easy to store music and get music from the computer via memory card or bluetooth. 5 stars.

Well, i've had this marvellous mobile since last christmas! it's been brilliant! i can't doubt it in any way! First of all, it went through a washine machine for half an hour before i realised, and when it dried off, it worked a treat! The camera is brilliant- i love the auto-focus. Maybe one problem is the joystick sticks a little- probably because it went through the washine machine! I have seen so many of my friends mobiles break and freeze and this phone hasnt done it once! i would strongly recommend this phone to anyone, and dont be put off my the camera taking a second to take the photo- this is because of the flash and auto-focus; without it the photos wouldnt be such a good quality. (If you want the photos to be taken you change the setting to a 'racing' display picture) SUPERB MOBILE! BUY, BUY, BUYY! plus: this phone can be bought for about 60 on ebay! ABSOLUTE BARGAIN!

Good for the first few months. Now the battery is loose and it keeps turning off, despite no damage. Don't bother buying if you want to use it as an mp3 player, I've gone through 4 pairs of headphones in around 5 months due to the terribly designed Sony Ericsson headphone socket (Either that or I've got some weird misshapen leg) Oh and the flash has died. Apart from those gripes it's a good phone. Maybe it would get three and a half stars if this website dealt in halves.

I have the Sony Ericsson K810i and overall i suppose its okay but me myself would rather a Nokia, the main fault i've had with this phone is that many of the buttons brake easily,and after having it a while it has seemed to have a mind of its own and control itself, many of times i've been texting or intending to call somebody and its backed up to the home screen, which gets very annoying, it also has begun to ring people without me in command which is extremely agitating, for 8 months this phone was near enough perfect but from there its gone majorly downhill, so therefore i would recommend this phone for somebody who is looking for something which will tie him over for under a year maybe, but if your looking for something like an 18 month contract stay clear of this handset, oh and another point the camera on this handset is fine ...... for a matter of months which then decides to take its time moving from one destination to another, and sometimes takes MINUTES to take a photo! and the volume that this mobile plays music at is utter rubbish.

Had the k810i for 16 months now and just starting to get bored of it because i've had it so long, but don't get me wrong, it IS an amazing phone. Camera is excellent and MP3s sound brilliant. The mobile internet is a bit slow but still it was good for the time it came out. Only a couple of complaints about it and that is that the camera button on the side has worn out after extensive use (this went around the 13 month stage) and the thumb knob collects dust and becomes hard to use after 6 months or so. The final complaint i have against this phone is that my # key stops and starts working whenever it feels like it now but i havn't heard of this problem from anybody else so i would suggest you forget that one. Overall i have loved this phone and still do, i think that it is bloody brilliant and the ONLY reasons i am looking to change it is because i am bored of using it and i would like a phone with a higher MP camera. Deffinately the best phone from 2007

Got this phone today so probily to early to write a proper review, but in reply to people a couple of comments about button feel and the general look and feel of the phone, i suggest they stop rubbishing this phone because there in love with a Samsung or something. Im extremly happy with how the phone looks and feels. It feels really well made and the camera is of high quality. I'm very critcal of things I buy and i'm very pleased with my purchase and grateful that a couple of reviews on here were chatting rubbish. People thinking of buying this phone should'nt think twice its a really good 2007 mobile phone. This is outstanding for the price. Sure you can get a better mobile but you will probily have to pay twice as much on a 08 modelthat really won't be much better than is. If you want a phone with a quality camera proffesional feel, cool looks and finish, texts well, phone calls in and out are fine then buy this phone. To buy a better mobile you will be looking at getting the Iphone or other phones in that price bracket.

After the batterys been replaced, mother board replaced and joystick software 'updated' a number of times it still doesnt work properly and I'm trying to get a totally new phone from my phone company which is proving just as difficult as the phone itself. They're trying to swap it for a phone that is WORSE. My boyfriends got the K800i and has nearly had it for two years without any problems with it. I wish I'd just got that one because there are no differences!! Bad bad phone.

The phone in general has been ok. More than happy with camera quality and overall usability etc. But my major gripe with this handset is the lack of build quality. In the last 12 months i have gone through 2 of these handsets and both with similar problems. First off was a crackling/distortion occuring in the earpiece during a call which has now got so bad that i cannot understand the person on the other end...solution - use yer hands free i suppose, but why should I? This is, first and foremost a phone right? That should mean that it's basic phone functions (ie speaking and listening) should be spot on, well not in this case. The camera element still works great but i'd really like to have a phone which still works as a phone please - crazy concept i know! The second fault which has only recently occured is that the vibrate function when recieving calls etc has given up the will to live. To sum up....nice looking and functioning (initially) camera phone. Make sure you wrap it in cotton wool if you want it to last your contract period as it will go wrong! Too many of these reviews are a 'first impression' and to be fair, i would have given it 4/5 stars a year ago, after 1 weeks worth of use, but after a year, i'm afraid I feel slighty let down by Sony Ericsson and will have to consider a brand with better build quality when i renew my contract.

One of, if not the best phone I've ever had. Owned mide for over a year and still come back to it now. Exelent camera to the point of rivaling the images some of the current 5mp phone cameras produce. Good battery life(I lock mine in GSM mode), almost a week between charges. Music player not quite as good as the Walkman range but not far off. Is bigger than the current fasion slim phones but not to big, in my opinion it feels nicer in the hand then a lot of the overly skinny handsets(W880i for example).

Had this phone since it came out over a year ago and I STILL say it's the best phone out there. So easy to use. Great camera. Good sound. Everything is easy to access and the buttons are easy to press. Love it

I love the phone and I enjoy using it. The two problems I had with it is, there is no light for usage when taking pictures in the night for me to see the objects and also, I have not been able to configure the system to use internet facility.

I have used this phone for seven months now and I completely love this phone. It's durable, easy to use and not too flashy. Only problem is that the alarm is somewhat useless as it "gives up" after calling for a minute or so. But the only telephone I ever had that didn't do that was an old Nokia 3210. The phone has been through a lot, and still works great. The buttons were unusual, but you get used to it rather fast. The cam works swell for my use, and so does the mp3 player(though I would like a better equalizer). You wouldn't like the movie feature if you plan to screen movies but it works quite well being a phone and not a video camera. 3G works well, though I don't use it much. Video calls are few and far between, so I don't have much to say about them. The joystic actually still works, and though joysticks suck by default, it works quite well also. All in all, it's the best phone I have ever had.

I've just "upgraded" from a K800i to K810i and believe me i have never been disappointed! The only thing i didn't like in the k800 is that the video quality was a bit dodgy. But k810 solved all that! Trust me, go for it, you won't regret it. Besides, it is better than any n series! Ha! even N95 doesn't have a Xenon flash, just a puny LED flash! Want an awesome phone, with a great camera? K810 is your man!
