Written on: 06/08/2011 by ChrisD7 (2 reviews written)

The K800i came out around summer '06. It was my choice as an upgrade from my "opal blue" (T-Mobile exclusive) D750i (different coloured/featured K750i equiv.) from summer '05. *** FEATURES *** (over and above basic phone features) * BATTERY LIFE * Sony Ericsson phones, in my experience at least, have always had sufficient battery life & performance to go days without needing a recharge. I'm glad to say, I still keep mine handy as a backup phone, and can leave it mostly unused (i.e. few if… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2009 by Isoniahtar (1 review written)

I am not a technology specialist, but I am a (sometimes problematic) regular user of several electronic devices, so I need something that's solid and doesn't break at its first fall or contact with watery substances - which my phone has seen in its life... I can say that if a device is Sonia-proof, the it really must be very good!I've had my Sony Ericsson K800i (bought from an Orange shop in Tirgu-Mures, Romania) for more than 3 years now and I must say it's been through rough times, but it has… Read Full Review

“Good points: ”

Written on: 14/08/2009 by AdaMax (4 reviews written)

Good points:
I have had this phone now inbetween other phones as a kind of backup phone, whilst most of the other phones break with the hard use and time used on them the sony ericsson k800i seems to stick at it.

The other thing about this phone is the durability of it, i have dropped it several times from quite high places.. each time it has been picked up relatively scratch less...

The features on the phone are great and really useful and its internet browsing capabilities are also really… Read Full Review

Hi the K800i is one of the best phones I have had. Its got a 3.2 MP Cyber-Shot camera which the lens in the camera is the same as a modern digital camera! It has a external memory card slot(M2). It has bluetooth. And it has USB Internet! 3G, RSS FEEDS, And many more! One of the main strengths of this phone is the Cyber-Shot camera! Also it has the same/better/similar functions as phones like W910i, W850i, W580i...... It has RSS Feeds and is very useful. It has USB Inernet which you can go on… Read Full Review

I wrote a fantastic review for this phone a while back, but unfortunately it broke soon after and would never switch on without a blinking white screen.

Written on: 20/02/2009

Very good phone with a crisp clarity. Survives many knocks and bumps and comes up smiling. Excellent 3.2mp camera which outstrips many 5mp cameras. Powerful xenon flash as used in proper digital cameras. Best Pic - take 9 shots just before the shutter id pressed and just after - excellent for moving subjects.
Excellent music player although not a walkman phone so it lacks some features, but it does the job well. Sony Ericsson largely made their name releasing this phone. It won lots of awards… Read Full Review

Overall, I like the K800i and is the first SE I've had. I know other people who have this phone and say it's great and reliable which is why I opted for this as an upgrade.I like the camera aspect of the phone, the editing facility, the flash and a 3.2 mp provides very good picture quality which are also easy to transfer to a pc. It took me a while to get used to the menu set up but it's easy and I like the rubbery feel of the keys. I've had no problem with the battery life. I find the volume… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2008 by sabretoothed (1 review written)

I have had the Sony Ericsson K800i phone for over a year now, alongside two other fancy smart phones. But I still prefer using my K800i more than either of the two. One of my other phones is with 5MP camera, but side by side comparison of prints and files on my computer still leans on sharpness towards the k800i. I have used Nokias for sometime and K800i is my first SE. I would say I have not been disappointed and even am extremely satisfied. I don't think I need anything more to look for an… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/08/2008 by motster (15 reviews written)

I have a 4gig memory card for my Sony Ericsson K800i, and that is my only down point, it has over 500 pics and 1000 songs and it is now starting to get slightly slow when starting up. The predictive text is amazing and is not complicated like other brands. i would highly recommend it to anyone. I use the the whole time, and because of the flight mode i can listen to music while flying like any other mp3 player

Had the Sony Ericsson K800i phone for 8 months now and im thrilled to bits with it.
Great camera phone, takes brilliant pics and easy to download to your computer. Iv added a 512MB memory card and is great for storing MP3's and pics. Iv had loads of phones and i text a very lot, over a thousand a month and the phones i had before packed in. But this phone is still going strong and still looks brand new. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

t mobile have really been excellent , loaned me a handset , [k850 i ,no rubbish ] they think that sony have been stringing this out for far too long [25days to diagnose a fault , come on !]. though they are going to get a second opinion of the fault for me , and try to fix fault. Also given me 2 months line rental credit , and extra credit for all the calls ive made . So far i haven't even got a proper explanation from sony , and they dont want to put me through to a manager to discuss it ? no… Read Full Review

Its come back from sony with damage that wasn't there when i sent it [someone on what mobile forum predicted this ] camera shutter damaged , and "prise marks " where someone has had a screwdriver, I don't recommend you send your phone to sony ericssons repairer.

tmobile sent it to another repairer , who told t mob that the "missing part " was actually there , it was a faulty motherboard in the handset !! they replaced my k800i , but i have now replaced it with a nokia , and have had no problems since . i loved my k800i , sony customer service is bad !!

Written on: 25/06/2008

finally got a reply from sony ericsson, after 23 days !!!!!!!!, ive rang them every 2 days , for 3 weeks to get updated on the progress , they never returned my calls !!!
<br/>my phone is deemed "not repairable " they say some one has had the phone to bits , because "the shield can" is missing . this is despite the fact the handset came in a sealed box , was brand new 14 months ago , and has NEVER EVER been out of my possession .
<br/>so how can it have been to bits ?
<br/>if its not repairable , why are tmobile offering to get it fixed for free ????????
