So far, I have been delighted by the phone. I have instant access to my local cinema times and loads of fun stuff on Orange World. I have taken photos and video clips and sent them to my computer and to friends by email (directly from the phone), because not may of my friends have photo messaging. I have a bluetooth dongle on order so that I can download stuff straight to my PC. There are loads of things to fiddle with. The games are very detailed with plenty more to download.
At first I was worried about the amount of money I had spent, but now I realise it was worth every penny. It looks as good as the picture. I have bought it a clear plastic jacket so that it doesn't get scratched.
The only down side was that it didn't come with a cable or dongle to allow PC connectivity, they need to be bought seperately.
In response to an earlier review, the clock still shows on the automatic light mode!
I would highly recommend this phone...an excellent buy!
However, now that the honeymoon period is over I am starting to resent my silver companion. Admittedly, she has withstanded a beating over the months. Although she has started to collect dust both in the rear loudspeaker and between the screen and the clear outer cover, making the screen ever harder to read.
Other problems are the picture quality, since the camera is one of the selling points of the phone. (the commercials slogan was 'camera meets phone' if memory serves.) The photos look good on the phone, but they come out very grainy when transfered to other medium and the night mode is frankly a joke since all of your photos come out looking like static.
My last complaint about this phone is that the little navigation control thingy has become very unresponisve and I am now going to be changing my phone after roughly 4 months of use.
Don't get me wrong, this is a good phone, however a few niggly points (such as those I have detailed) are bound to creep up on you.
Overall, I have given this product 3 / 5 since although it is quite a solid, functional, phone. It might not last you till your next upgrade.
On first appearences this phone is a smart upgrade of the T610i the top selling phone in europe last year but first apperances can be decieving and this is so much more than an upgrade. The T610i's main fault is the grainy interface and very poor photo quality the K700i has turned this on its head and the photo quality has become comparible to digital cameras (superb VGA camera quality and 65,000 colours) and the interface is bright and makes the Nokia 6230 look crude and wasted. It really uses all 65,000 colours.
One complaint i saw was the fact that the battery can be drained very quickly. This is a fair point and when you are using the digital camera, video recorder or MP3 player it will go dead in 1 or 2 days. However you must remember that a digital camera will only last about this same length of time and it has little to do with the battery quality and is merely a reflection of the amount of energy required to run its extensive applications. Another point to take in account is that if you just use the phone to recieve and occasional text message or phone call it will last around 2 weeks! I was very suprised to find this superb level of battery life in such a small phone.
The MP3 player is very good and although you cannot fit much music on the phone you can fit around an albums length if you use space carefully.
Bluetooth and IRA are impressive and easy to use and as a joint purchase with this phone i would suggest buying a bluetooth adaptor for your computer (if it is not already bluetooth enabled) as it allows you to transfer photos and MP3 files between computer/laptop and phone making your memory to virtually infinate!
I love this phone and would not have any other and whatever you do don't buy the Nokia 6230 because it costs more and is an extremely poor attempt to beat an amazing phone in the K700i!
Surely the phone of the year a multimedia godsend
