Sony Ericsson K550i Review

 

Once upon a time, there was a Cyber-shot ... and then suddenly there were more. Following the huge success of its K790 and K800 Cyber-shot handsets, Sony Ericsson decided to spread its series to a broader audience. Focusing mainly on its two well-known...

Cyber-shot phones usually have very good camera modules and K550i is no exception. Maybe it's a little bit tricky to take pictures with it, taking care of the light conditions and all, but this is a very good 2 Megapixel camera. In addition, the sound...

Perhaps the sleek keypad design was not a very good idea, especially for those with big fingers. A new redesigned look would have attracted more buyers. Other than that, Sony Ericsson's K550i is the perfect mid-level handset and offers exactly what it...

SONY ERICSSON K550i review | cellphone prices in php | cellphones | www.CgeNa.com   

 

Sony Ericsson K550i leaves nice impression at first sight. With its measurement of 102 x 46 x 14 mm and weighs only 85 g, it passes the slim and sleek design everyone craves for.

Bear in mind that in the case of Sony Ericsson the Cyber-shot logo does not necessarily mean great camera performance but enhanced imaging capabilities. The decent camera, the memory card slot, the good battery life are things that are not easily...

Sony Ericsson K550i and K550im

 

8th February 2007A sleek and shiny 2 megapixel camera phone, the midrange Sony Ericsson K550i bears the Cyber-shot name.. but follows in the tradition of the successful K750i. There's an i-mode version too.

Sony Ericsson K550

 

The Sony Ericsson K550 is a mid range candy bar style phone that features a 2 mega pixel high resolution digital camera, an extremely slim and light case and quad band GSM to work pretty much all over the world

The Sony Ericsson K550 is a small, light weight easy to use phone that is perfect for most users ; High quality 2 mega pixel camera took excellent images. Two great additional features were the LED flash and the lens cover ; Quad band GSM allows you to...

Storage requires M2 memory stick (usually more expensive and less versatile than other types of memory cards) ; Speakerphone could have been a drop better ; Antenna and data connections are in odd places on the phone

A great phone, especially if you would like a high quality camera. While this phone has a few things that are not perfect, for the most part it delivers high quality performance.

The K550i isn't without its faults, but for this price you certainly get good value for money.

2 megapixel Cyber-shot camera with auto focus and flash, M2 storage, TrackID service, A2DP Bluetooth profile, Price

Small keypad and controls, Battery cover annoyingly needs clips to lock into place, Proprietary headphones and AC charger

Sony Ericsson K550i

 

If you want great battery life from your music playing, photo taking mobile phone, the K550i could be the handset for you.

Sony Ericsson likes to use round shapes for its other buttons but tends not to go for full circles. So, beneath the screen we have a round navigation button with top and bottom sections lopped off and semi-circular buttons at the edges of the handset...

Sony Ericsson K550i review

 

The prepay K550i may have a 2MP snapper but does it have the photographic talent to deserve the Cyber-shot badge?

The best value camphone around. It may have prepay status and modest photographic ambitions, but the K550i doesn’t tarnish the Cyber-shot name one jot

Sony Ericsson K550i review

 

Cyber-shot phones come to the mass market

Cyber-shot photographic interface ; Fine music player ; Welcome active lens cover

No 3G ; Keys a little thin ; Video quality

It has its flaws as a phone but these are overshadowed by its excellent multimedia capabilities
