I find this phone ideal for my needs, it is a perfect size, light weight, and great battery life. The keys are easy to use not to small and the keypad lights up when the keys are pressed,making it easy to see which key to press even when it is dark. Lots of ringtones to choose from and it is very easy to add your own either by downloading or by using music on the phone. You can add music either to the phone memory or with an additional memory card. I have yet to fill either of the memory capacity and have lots of music on there. I do not use the camera as a camera as i prefer a proper camera for taking photos but if you just want it as a camera standby if will be perfect. Screen size is great not too big , not too small.
Ideal camera for the price.
First time i saw this phone it was in a magazine, the next day i sent my OH up to the 02 shop and he got it for me! It cost £130 and i got a free benifit lipstick thing . Mine is the pink and gold version and i don't think i have had a more gorgeous looking phone than this! It really is stunning and people are always commenting on it. I'm not sure if you can still buy this in the pink version because i think it was limited edition BUT the covers are changeable, so even if you bought the one as shown or the green one i'm sure you'll be able to get a groovy cover for it (or ofcourse there is always ebay...)
Anyway, let me move on to describe my experiance with the rest of the phone.
Battary is great, normally only have to charge it every 4 - 7 days, just depends.
The screen is clear and of a good size, it can sometimes appear dull if its not been used for a while i think thats just due to it needs to 'heat' up.
Has good memory, it has a micro sd card that comes with it, thats enough for me i have quite a few songs on it and haven't had to delete my messages since i got it last june/july! and it still has quite a bit of memory left!
The buttons are a bit... funny.. they look good but if you txt quite a bit your finger tips might get a bit sore cos the buttons are very VERY small and square. I've read in other reviews that some people have experianced the paint on the buttons to start to come off, this hasnt happened to me however, although some paint did chip of the side one time when i dropped it.... Sometimes if you try to exit something and press the 'return'/'back' button it can sometimes try and connect to the internet, even though the button for the internet is next to that button, i think its just a small glitch. (maybe just with my phone...)
The camera isnt the greatest, its supposed to be 3.2 but it doesnt feel like it, the pictures can look a bit grainy, and the slightest movement causes it to blur. But i don't really take that many photos with my phones anyway so it doesnt affect me that much.
It's also very simple to connect to the computer for file transfers/ sharing.
But overall it's very stylish, it's easy to use, it's survived many drops and i think it's my favourite phone i've had so far!
I saw this phone in the o2 shop just before christmas, the pink version with the gold plated top part, I fell with it! I was so happy when i had it as a christmas present!
My boyfriend has been nagging me for ages to get a sony after having samsungs and i am glad i listened.
This phone does so much more than any other make and its built like a brick i love it! Its so blingy and funky just what a real girly girl needs. Everyone has commented on how good it looks.
My pink one came with some lovely accesories, a funky lipstick, cover and a charging stand.
I wouldnt change this phone for anything, the screen is lovely, menu is easy to use, loads of extra settings to play with. really worth every penny. thank you sony for making such a good phone i love it.
One of Sony Ericsson's interesting phones in its portfolio. T650i was considered one of the luxurious of its kind, when it was released. With the price of over £300, it was not an easy phone to obtain. Featured even in R. Kelly & Usher's song, 'Same Girl', this phone screamed desire and lust. The phone has very good construction, the steal frame, and interesting little keypads (like that of K810). It was slim, average 3.2MP camera. Nice screen but maybe a little too small for its kind and price. The 2ndaray camera just usable. The most notable thing is the construction and design, you will not be bored of it, and it does stand out from the crowd, especially the green version which I had. The battery life is average, good connectivity functions, bluetooth is responsive. The price dropped heavily after a year, as it could not compete with feature-packed phones. Now, it can be obtained quite cheap, and a definite thumbs up!
The Sony Ericsson T650i is a relatively new 3G phone. It is a mid range product that offers a broad range of functionality without specialising in any particular area. It contains a good camera, but lacks the sophistication of the CyberShot range. Likewise it is a competent music player but falls short of the WalkMan phones.
Presented in a bar style it looks like a fashion phone but packs a lot more quality than you might expect, especially in comparison to inferior products from Samsung and Motorola.
How do you get one ~
The T650i is currently available on pay monthly contracts from O2 and Virgin. If you're mad you could buy one sim free and unlocked for anything between £200 - £300. I got mine through Carphone Warehouse who also threw in an in-car charger (normally £15) free, although this was sweetener as T-Mobile were giving me hassle for switching to O2 and I was beginning to lose the will to live in the shop.
In the box ~
The box is jam packed full of rubbish, I mean accessories. So much that I can't get it all back in the box now I've unpacked. Still, I used to be able to do the Rubik Cube in under a minute so I'm sure I'll figure it out.
You get: A charger, some ear phones and a 256MB M2 micro card. That's the important stuff, you also get an 'elegant' desk stand, pouch, manual, USB cable and CD for the computer.
Looking at these in more detail the ear phones are those annoying pointy ones that never stay in. The micro card is big enough for a couple of albums and some photos but will probably need upgrading before too long. The desk stand is probably meant for the video conference functions on the phone but in reality its primary function will to make the phone more visible to the rest of the office who can then admire how cool it is. The pouch is a nice idea but the fact that you'd need to take the phone out of the pouch to use it means I doubt I'll be using it.
Look and feel ~
With a depth of 12mm this qualifies as a slim phone, not the slimmest available but svelte nonetheless. Weighing in at 95g it is light, although again not the lightest around, but being built on a sturdy chassis with a stainless steel case it feels remarkably solid for the weight. There's no indication that you could break it through normal use that you get with inferior makes. You won't find many 3G phones this size.
The overall design is apparently inspired by the Nordic lights, which sounds like so much marketing nonsense but it looks great for all that. Its two tone with the upper half in brushed steel designed to catch the light (the result of an eight stage finishing process) and the bottom half in either a bright lime green or dark midnight blue. The green is quite loud but the blue is more subtle and either looks good. The phone has lots of straight lines and is very angular, the buttons are small and square and take some getting used to but the overall minimalist look is very satisfying.
The screen is large, clear and bright with good visibility even in bright sunlight; this is due to a scratchproof mineral glass coating which may sound mad but makes more sense than having an animal or vegetable one.
In use ~
This is my third Sony Ericsson on the trot now and much of the functionality remains familiar. The physical button layout has stayed constant and this continues with the software. The operating system and iconography is in the same style as before, albeit with richer graphics, and the bundled software has not changed since my last upgrade 18 months ago. This bundle includes picture and sound editors and a video conference facility. The in-built media player can handle video files as well as music. Navigating the phone is straightforward and new users should have no problems finding their way around.
The camera is 3.2 megapixel and has a decent lens, it also has a light rather than a flash (this can also be used as a torch which could prove useful for finding dropped keys). The pictures are very good and as good as those taken by digital cameras just a couple years ago. There is a second camera on the front for video calling, if you know anyone with comparable video calling technology that is.
This is a great phone to look at and after a month or so of use has shown no technical shortcomings. It will be my phone for the remainder of my contract but I have no doubts that I will still have that joy of ownership when the next upgrade letter comes around.
A design inspired by the Nordic light - the subtle beauty of the T650i awakens your desires, implores you to touch.
Let your eyes linger on the mineral glass screen. Scratch-resistant, and crystal-clear even in bright sun light. Makes you feel the T650i belongs in your hand.
The T650i also lets you catch the beautiful things around you. Take pictures with the 3.2 megapixel camera. View them on-screen or share via your blog.
