I've had the Sony Ericsson P800 for about 4 months, and bought it primarily for the touch screen/pda/phone combination which was the first of its kind. I've had to exchange it twice using the "Orange Care" (thouroughly recommend this service also - next day replacement of my phone for £5 a month!!) because (1) phone got stolen, and then (2) camera stopped working and operating system kept crashing.
The features on the phone are excellent - especially as you can add and remove them as much... (read more)

This is a great gadget, with great functionality. I replaced both my cell phone and Palm PDA with one device (the P800). However, when it carashed and could not be started within 4 months of purchase, I had the worst experience with Sony Ericsson technical support. I sent it two times for repaire, and each time they returned it as "fixed" but it was not. They finally promised to send a new handset in a week. Three weeks later, and still no handset. If you depend on your PDA or cell phone,... (read more)

The SONY P800 is Simply irresistable! Most awaited, it is a big boom in the mobile market. Excellent Features and a 5 way Jog dial makes navigation easy. Opera browser is a perfect match with P800 and Hutch`s GPRS account.Sexy sleek look and a Stunning Icy Blue Outline makes the P800 the best mobile/PDA for a business user. But, I would recommend this phone only for a business man who is always on the move as for an average user, the features are found to be far too high and the average user... (read more)

Some people say a phone is for making and receiving calls, and some say a PDA should ONLY do PDA fuctions, and a cd player...for playing music! I don't think so! The Sony Ericsson P800 lets you listen to music while you work, or you can call someone while you are browsing the net, taking pictures or maybe doing some work! Good stuff! (read more)

I decided it was time to sell my faithful IPAQ 3950 PDA and buy a fully integrated mobile phone / PDA. I asked the advice of several 'experts' in various phone outlets and was told the P800 was the one for me. "It does everything" I was told and sure enough it does - unfortunately, unconvincingly.
The P800 boasts most features including an MP3/Movie player, camera, synchronisation with PIM such as MS Outlook and looks like it may just pull it off. A phone the size of a standard house... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson P800 is a superb gadget, much more than a phone, went from a nokia 3330 to this. the difference could not have been more dramatic. the features are described elsewhere, so i'll just point out, only 2 days after buying on an upgrade for £300 from the link, why i now have a gd87; unlike my humble nokia, the p800, because it has so many features, cannot support two phone lines on the same phone. beacuse i loved it so much i toyed with the idea of taking the sim card out at seven...

I've tried and tried with this but it's now back to my T68 and the iPAQ PDA. As a PDA you can't edit Word / Excel docs. As a phone answering another incoming call whilst on one is a right fiddle. And the fact that it can't to Line 2 on Orange is nuts. The camera quality is very very poor. Nice try but not quite there yet. (read more)

I only got the Sony Ericsson P800 while I was waiting for the Motorola V600 to come out but after 5 minutes of use I was addicted so I will be keeping it. "Motorola V600 LOL" This phone can do almost anything plays mp3's and movies, you can even fit a whole film onto a 128 MB stick if you compress it enough and still looks OK. It also look cool to and the hand writing recognition works very well even if you use your finger instead of the stylus, the battery also lasts a long time I was using... (read more)

The P800 was worth the wait as it became available in South Africa only in April 2003.
Very happy with the PDA function and the camera.
There is a desktop unit that can replace the existing charger/syncroniser. It has a speakerphone facility as well (CSS-20 DPY901403)
Overall, very impress with this phone.

Functionality of this phone is quite outstanding, and puts the P800 as one of the leading phones on the market today. I would not recommend this phone to anyone who would not use the features it provides however. But, if like me, you require good PDA functionality, Internet access (full web browser, email...etc) without carrying around a palm and phone - then this is the kit you need. The handwriting recognition is also better than the palm.
I got my phone on upgrade from Vodafone - so... (read more)

Sony Ericsson's P800 has Bluetooth, is tri-band, does picture messaging, has a camera, has a touch-screen, does web browsing, offers GPRS, and even lets you speak to other people that also have a telephone.
The fact that you can draw a map and send it to another picture-enabled 'phone is a nice touch. The camera and screen are pretty good and larger than most. They don't compete with a proper camera or the screen of a laptop, but then they're not in the same price bracket either.
Though we... (read more)

Where can i start? This phone has everything. It is top of the range and will be for some time. The price tag is often high but if you are willing to pay more for line rental then you can get it cheaper, even free!!! (phones4u) The camera is the best i have seen since the nokia 7650. The pictures when transferred to pc via serial station (supplied), infra red or bluetooth are suprisingly good quality. You get a free handsfree kit, 3 extra styli.
The phone is larger than average phones... (read more)

MAJOR downfall. Doesn't support Orange line 2.
This is essential for many people such as myself.
With Opera installed quite good for wap but doesn't seem to be supported by my bank so I can't do on line banking as I could with my 6210. Opera will even support standard framed web sites though it is not really practical for the display size.
It takes pix and can serve as an MP3 player. You can make your own ring tones very easily. There is cradle to facilitate connection to the computer -... (read more)

To me, I have found this worth considering. This unit has a nice sturdy design and great features. You can download a free opera browser for it that optimizes pages to fit the screen. The bluetooth functionality works great with my Jabra headset and makes it a bit easier to deal with the slight bulk of the phone (you can keep the phone in your briefcase/jacket/inside pocket). Compared to the other phones in the category such as the palm type phones it is relatively svelt. Great bright color... (read more)

This phone is fantastic. I have worked in the industry for a long time and this has to be the best smartphone I have seen. If you can get past the size it is definately worth splashing out on. The set up is very easy and the list of features is endless. (read more)

This is the best phone I have owned if not the biggest since my One2One Motorola M300! The PDA functions are excellent and are easy to synchronize. Having a 16MB memory card is very useful.
I thought using the stylus would be inconvenient but it is very simple and effective.
The thing that really stands out though is the sound quality is excellent (important in a phone don't you think?.
The thing that bugs me is whether to keep the flip on or off. If you keep it on the phone loses its... (read more)

I got this Phone a week ago and am frankly astounded at the amount of features. I love it to bits. The manual could be better in my opinion. You will (if you have a PDA) soon find that you may not need it. I have given my wife my old palm m505.
Great you wont be disapointed. (read more)
