I was really excited about getting a new phone - I love new toys! My Sony Ericsson k600i arrived and, patiently for me I let it fully charge before playing with it! I'd done some research on the internet and was looking forward to the change from my very reliable Nokia 7610 which I really liked...

“How small can they go”

So my Nokia 6630 was getting on my nerves due to it's size and weight but before the release of the K600i there was not much choice in relation to small and light 3G phones. So SonyEricsson do it again and release a phone that redefines the boundaries of size and functionality. -------------Look...

“The 3G phone just got sexy!”

published 01/09/2005

Clear screen, great looks, 3G

3G not available in some areas

I received my K600i yesterday after purchasing from someone on ebay for £220 - a bargain I have to admit! This phone has been overshadowed by the K750i and the W800i but it is a class phone offering a 1.3 megapixel camera and 3G. The phone had originally been locked to orange but the seller had...

I got this phone free with 3 when I changed over from Orange. Initially all was well but I soon found the battery life poor, the phone does not tell you when the battery is about to die and if you have around 75 % of life left, it will die during a 30 min conversation. You can fully charge it in...

Looks good, good battery life, lots of features

Memory could be a bit larger

When I went for my upgrade last year, I knew I wanted a Sony Ericsson phone. I'm not the kind of person that wants what everyone else has, I want something a little different. I was originally going to have either the k750i or the w800i...yet everywhere I looked, people had these phones! I was...

When the screen on my Sony Ericsson T610 shattered the insurance company gave me £70 to find a new phone. I searched for a few days before stumbling upon this k600i on Phones4u.co.uk for £60 on PAYG! Being a bit of a Sony Ericsson fan I snapped it up an eagerly awaited its arrival. When it...

This phone was by far my favourite phone of all time. It did absolutely everything. I listened to the radio on the way to work, laughing on the bus to chris moyles, and feeling silly for it. On the way home the radio was rubbish so i'd listen to my MP3's. And OK, so maybe I couldnt have...

“Sony Ericcson K608i on 3”

published 15/07/2006

Stylish, good mp3,

low memory, weak shell, unreliable menu button.

I got this phone when my old one broke and i had to get a nmew one. I decided to get the Sony Ericsson K608i because it was, in my opinion, the best pay as you go handset available on 3. Eventhough it is easy to use and the menu is easy to navigate, the phone does have its problems. For instance...

I have this phone for about 1,5 year now. The basic functionalities are good (calling quality & text messaging), but forget about the extras. The camera quality is really bad. It was much worse than I expected, especially when taking pictures when there is not much light. I have not had a chance to use the video conference feature as somehow my provider (O2) doesn't allow me to use it (I have 3G services enabled in my contract though).

“waste of a phone!”

published 01/04/2006

very small for 3G, nice design

no expandable memory, slow software

On paper the phones seems great with its 3G capabilities and it large screen 1.3 mega pixel camera etc, but I have to say that this is possibly one of the worst phones that i have ever owned. First of all the phone has no expandable memory! its seems a bit strange really to make a 3G phone that...

I'm have to confess, I'm one of these people who sees a mobile phone as just that - a telephone (ok, and text messager!) that you can put in your pocket. In that capacity, the k600i does very well. The battery life is extremely good (several days on one charge with limited talk time), the...

“Why Why Why”

It's very light!

Talk time

I bought this phone because the one I wanted on 3 was not in stock and I needed one straight away. This is the worse buy I have ever made in my life! Yes I know a mobile is to make calls and it does do that (sometimes!) but it's nice to have other things to play with on the phone. It didn't come...

I used that phone for more than a year. I just recently changed it to nokia n73. I really liked that mobile. It's not beautiful, but looks ok, just like all sony ericssons. It feels very nice. It has about 30mb internal memory, unfortunatelly you can't exted that by adding memory card. It has...

Can't add memory card. Camera not best available

The K600i is the fifth SE handset I have owned and in all I have been very impressed with each and every one of them. It has the familiar SE interface, so navigating will be a breeze if you've upgraded from another SE phone. My previous 3G handset (Z1010) had a memory card slot for storing extra...

I first brought the K600i after looking for a replacement for my k700i, and it seemed a great choice because i am partial to Sony Ericsson phones. Not only does it look good in silver, it looks great in black! Its very easy to use and has the same layout on its menu as other sony ericssons making...
