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...

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...

ProClear screen, great looks, 3G

Cons3G 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...

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...

Conslow 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).

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...

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...
