I love the way the phone looks, speakerphone function is great, and the fact the phone has just about everything one needs.
No T9 dictionary function for easy sms, comes with limited ringtones that sound awful, handwriting recognition is quite sensitive and need to take some time getting used to, camera resolution isn't as good as the Nokia's
I've been using the P800 for about 3 weeks now, and at first it was really quite complicated to use. You really have to read the manual carefully. The design of the phone looks good but in reality is a little on the flimsy side, especially the plectrum like writing tool they provide. It tends to go missing but fortunately they provide a few spares. Don't expect to take too many photos unless you are going to store it all in the memory stick and transfer it out later on, as the photos and audio take up a lot of space and causes memory problems. I noticed that the phone has some problems with the microphone - sometimes, people have to call twice before they can hear you speak, and you hear them perfectly fine. It could be my phone is faulty. I'm very used to using T9 function when SMSing, and if you are too, then you'll find the fact it doesn't have this function very frustrating. Hopefully, there will be a fix for this soon. Aside from all this, I have grown quite fond of my P800 and recommend it only to those who are technology enthusiast, and not for people who merely use their phones for calls and sms
