This is my first 3g phone which i brought after the launch of 3g in india.. i was attracted by the design. simple mobile weighing less the 120grams.. coming to cam, this phone comes with 3.2 mp cam.. the cam has various features.. cam pixels can be changed ie to 1mp,2mp,3mp.. the resolution of picture taken in 3mp mode is 2048*1536.. supports all formats of audio.. mp3 player is too sexy.. the player can viewed in landscape as well.. the player also has various functions such as track list,album and all.. sound clarity is awesome when heard through earphones.. sound audibility is too low.. it also has photo dj,video dj apps inbuilt.. the phone can be used as remote controller for operating desktop media player or changing slides.. inbuilt browsers really sucks.. opera is opt for t700... it also has a powerful torch light.. 3g connectivity is awesome. it also has a front cam for video calling with 1 mp cam.. surfing and downloading speed is good... one of the disadvantage is hangs up frequently when you perform a multi task like opening more than 2 apps..
I bought this phone a year ago and it has been one of my favourite phones. It's sleek and stylish and fits perfectly into my jean pocket without causing unecessary buldge. The keys are proper buttons that stand out and this makes texting extremely easy. And the buttons are quiet which is not something that I noticed until I started using other phones.
This phone, similar to most Sony Ericsson phones is extremely easy to navigate. There was something that I found annoying at first which was the fact that on the text messages screen, there wasn't an option to just show the sender and date. It had to show the first line of the text message itself. For me, I didn't like it because I felt that privacy was not good.
On the subject of privacy, I felt that this phone had very few security settings. There is the standard pin and phone lock but that was it.
My phone actually stopped functioning properly recently, after having used it for just under a year. I now own a Nokia which I prefer in terms of security. But in terms of ease of use, I recommend this phone.
I own this phone for more than half a year now, so I can share some of my experiences with it.
I have to say that this phone above all has the best appearance possible, it is really slim, has solid construction (not that easy plastic like), metallic colour - it is really stylish.
It is meant to be a somewhat multimedia player, it has a great-looking multimedia software menu (or something) which makes browsing through pictures, video and audio really simple. You can also make play-lists and such - which is a great feature in my opinion. You can use it as a secondary mp3 player true at the cost of battery running low faster (with normal use -calling and texting only + low light consumption settings - the battery can last a week from my experience). There is one thing I do miss though since this one is multimedia oriented - the phone has a 3.2 megapixel camera (which is great) but does not have a cybershoot which even some of the earliest models of Sony Ericsson have. I had a phone before that had cybershoot so this has been a disappointment with this one, if it has all this audio visual quality why did they not make it do good pictures - if your hand shakes a bit - which it will because the photo button can be a bit hard to push down - the picture will be foggy.
Leaving the photo aside, the audio features are great! The sound on the speakers when you play the music is decently clear, with earphones it is perfect.
Phone uses M2 cards and mine came with 512MB card so this is plenty of space to store your favourite tracks (or games, pictures, whatever), if this is not enough you can always buy a larger one.
The phone has all the standard Sony Ericsson software included - Music DJ, Photo Editor, standard organization software (alarm, calendar, calculator...). It also has a somewhat unique Sony Ericsson software called Track ID - this is a pretty awesome stuff - you know when you hear a track on the radio and you absolutely love it but don't know who is it by so it gets lost forever? Well not any more - you use this program, record the track clip and it will find track name and author. How cool is this? It helped me quite a few times to get my hands on some great tracks.
There is another thing from the software point that needs to be mentioned - the original background theme is pretty awesome - at first glance it is kind of dull - there are appearing and disappearing silver and silver-goldish dots on a black background - but this is not all, when there are holly days (or any special days) the background will change - the dots will be appearing and disappearing in a way that they will make pictures, for example for valentine's day they drew a heart, for St Patrick's day a 4-leafed clover, around new year there was a Christmas Tree...
There is one thing I do hate about it's software though - it seems that it has to be updated and it does that automatically - the phone just switches off by itself and turns back again (not often that is true) but it does this without any warning and no matter what you are doing, so if you are texting and you just wrote a whole novel you will have to do it again because it won't be save. I mean they could at least make it to give a warning.
The phone is very durable, I am not the phone-friendly user, I do not use any phone bags - it usually ends up either in my pocket or it is just thrown into my bag (along with sharp evil objects) and there is not a lot of sign that it is used. The keys still have all the numbers and colour, there are no bigger scratches on it. The colour is almost perfect - it is a bit used off on the edges though, but I suppose if I would take better care of it this would not be the case.
In the end I can say that this phone is a decent one and worth a buy (if you are not bothered with the camera as I am).
I have owned this phone for 4 months now. I quite like it. I'm not the biggest gadget fan, so i'm not really into Iphones or anything with too many features. I wanted a phone which is small, easy to use, reliable with a good battery life. I also wanted something that wasn't too expensive as im pay as you go.
I am pleased with my phone so far because I think it fulfils my expectations of what I wanted.
It is quite a durable phone, I have dropped it several times partly due to being clumsy and partly due to my job. Each time I've picked it up, it continues to work as before and I don't notice many marks on it.
It has a 3.2 mega pixel camera which I occassionally use. The camera quality is good and there are several modes you can set the camera up to.
It also has a lot of features in common with most phones now such as WAP capabilities, alarm, calendar, downloadable games, radio, sound recorder. Therefore it is quite standard in terms of mobile phones nowadays.
However, I believe that this phone suits somebody who wants a well built, no frills and easy to use phone with a touch of class.
The Sony Ericsson T700 is a very stylish mobile phone. The design is very attractive and modern so it will not look old and out of place if you still be using it in several years time. The phone is just 1cm in thickness so it will sit comfortably within your hand and it will slide into your pocket without taking a lot of space
The phone itself had all the basic communication features including voice calling, email pushing, sms texting and access to the web off WAP. The sound quality when making and receiving calls are good and you can listen to the calls through a built in speaker phone.
The best thing about this phone was it's 3.2 mega pixel cybershot camera. It was a really good camera at the time with a built in flash light. The picture quality was what I thought really good and clear. The pictures could then be taken and sent to a computer through bluetooth or a USB cable.
The internal memory was 16mg but you could expand the memory with a M2 memory card with up to 4GB. This meant you could store hundreds of photos and MP3 tracks to listen on using the MP3 player.
The phone itself had other useful features such as infrared connectivity, bluetooth for connecting hands free kits to it and it also had a FM radio built in for use with connected headphones.
This is a very useful phone. The battery life was decent lasting over 4 days without having to recharge it. Overall this is a decent phone
I upgraded to this mobile after my long standing k800i finally gave up. This is the best phone I have ever had, simple and easy to use this offers the standard Sony menu, great screen resolution and colour clarity. The 3.2 mega pixel camera boasts fantastic picture quality, with flash and video options an added bonus.
Battery life is great too, I use my phone for mainly texting sending over 100 texts a day, and with the phone calls I do make I find the battery lasts all day and evening and some days I can last two days without having to charge.
This slim and stylish phone comes in red and gold or black and silver perfect for a first phone or a sleek upgrade.
I would definately recommend this mobile to anyone looking for a new phone. Fun, easy to use and always reliable, can't go wrong !
I recently purchased this phone, and although it was slightly a bit out of a my budget, as I usually only spend up to £100 on mobile phones, I was sick of having phones constantly break, so I decided to spend a little extra (it cost me £140), on this phone.
I was instantly attracted to the colour and the 3.2mp camera. Both the black and red version are nice, sophisticated and sleek looking.
Sony Ericsson phones have really nice systems, they are just easy to use, even without a manual, and all the things you need are laid out perfectly. The menu is simple to get to which has everything you need, and there's no faffing about just to simply send a text message or make a phone call, as is the problem with a lot of phones nowadays, especially touchscreen phones.
You can choose which size memory card goes into the phone, meaning you can have as many or as little pictures, messages, songs, etc, as you like. The music player on the phone is fantastic, just as good as the Sony Ericsson Walkman phones. The camera is pretty good. 3.2mp is not amazing, but it isn't a Cybershot phone, so is fairly decent for what it is, and the results look pretty impressive on the 2 inch tall screen.
There are plenty of useful generic functions like most other phones, such as calendar, alarm clock, emails, messages, phone calls, but I think I was most impressed by the phone's internet. It is easy to get around, and its easy to select buttons (not as rigid as Sony Ericsson internet used to be).
I'm really impressed with this phone, and I think its definitely worth the money.
