Not bad, but the Marshall Ward deal for the K810i was better IMO. After quidco etc, the phones are about £93.

Yeh compared to the k810i deal. this is nothing.

shyamk - please see my sig links for help on deals. I've added an image and the price and retailer to the thread title

k800i is the same as k810i expect the look.

Good find shyam

Yeah but the Marshall Ward deal is not available now - so voted hot...

Yep

Only advantage the 810i has is battery life... which is highly debateable.

The 810i looks ugly too.. those buttons!!!

Huh? A slight contradiction me thinks.

my niece has this and the screen is beutiful

Voted hot as it's a cracking deal however I'm not too fond of the design of these phones they look too squarish for my liking. These have a 3.2mp camera compared to the 2mp camera on the w800x/w810x however they look better.

lol - that's why there's always someone for someone - I think the "ugly" buttons are really nice!



The new phone k850i due out in Oct (5 MP camera) will have slightly different buttons, square buttons with rounded corners...

I am not going to comment in case I offend...

Now those are some ugly buttons! :shock:

The thing that's missing with the K800's and above is the light function. Sure you can run a java program that turns the red-eye reduction on but it's no replacement for the bright white led of the k750i for example.

The amount of times it's come in handy is unbelievable.

Having to buy a new format of memory card is a hassle too

Yeah thats a good point about the LED light I will miss that from my W800 when my new K800 comes in + also a new memory card will be needed - shame I dint think of all this before ordering one hey !?!?!?

K850 has a light on function and a separate Xenon flash

Godspeed

The K800i has a Xenon flash which is much better than the K750i LED flash (according to on-line reviews anyway).

Are these easily (read: cheaply) unlocked?

No its neither cheap nor easy, do a search on eBay for "unlock K800i" to get an idea of costs (around £15 ish) and as far as I can tell its a case of posting your handset to them. Maybe you have a local shop/market trader who might do it for a tenner.

The flash on the k800 is great, many times better than an led flash. I've just got an N95 which has led flash. It's **** at indoor photos, whereas the k800i is almost as good as a proper digital camera.
I can see me using my old phone more than my new one.

deeyup

Tenner would be fine, I'll ask around. - I doubt I could find this on o2 for £99.99.

When K850i comes out prices will plummet on the k800i and k810i

I think we are seeing the prices plummering right now. I'm waiting for my K800i on a 12 months 'free' cash back deal, these only seem to happen on older models.

just tested out the camera on the K810i WOW great.

Yes but that's all it is - A flash. I perefer a LIGHT to use as a torch which you can do on the K750i not the K800i

Original Poster

You can get this phone 10% cheper if you tell carphonewarehouse to price match the phone

The autofocus assist led light actually makes a pretty good torch - albeit an orange one - and the xenon flash is far superior to an LED flash. If you want a camera phone that can actually do the job of a half decent digital camera it has to be this (although I'm going to upgrade to the K850 when it comes out ;-))

i agree about the k750i light, very handy, if the k850i has this then i might hold out until then.

K850i looks ugly.

k810i looks very stylish.

For every complaining about no torch light. there are 2 Java programs that are available for free download that solve your problem. I've had them on my k800i since the day i got it last summer.

Torch is a java app for the k800/k790 and works by activating the red led next to the flash. (you can exit by pressing backbutton)

Be sure to change the permission for the app. to "Multimedia" = No, or you will get a question about access to the camera every time you start Torch.
(highlight Torch in Applications > press More > select Permissions > select Multimedia > select No)

REALLY cool, I put it onto my K800i and it works perfecthttp://www.3g.co.uk/3GForum/images/smilies/cool.gif
Download it here

The other program is called "Light" - This just turns the screen white. Not as bright as the above prog but is has its uses. If i can remember were i found it i'll post a link.

Can anybody tell me if Adsa sime will work on this phone, they piggyback the Voda network

Yep you should be able to without any problem! However all the vodafone branding will obviously still remain.

Have a look at:
kingmobilephone.com/pag…php

Not sure how much they charge but well worth considering if you get it.

Has anyone's quidco tracked on this after using the £10 off code as well? Cos mine hasn't! :-(
