Sony Ericsson K810 Review
К810’S speed is almost the same as that of the previous model: you can tell that the same hardware was used. When were comparing the phones, very rarely the new model would open the main menu quicker, but I had the feeling that this was rather due to the good joystick and not thanks to the optimized software. There is still an annoying slowing when opening the menus.
Again, this is a phone with a very strong signal. Compared with the other phones during our test of measuring the signal strength, К810 performed very well and we rated it 8 out of 10. We were pleased to find out that the sound during conversation was better than that of the previous model, which was actually one of our criticisms. Now the sound is strong in both directions, the phone is usable also in very noisy places and the voices still sound clearly and authentically.
К810 is a good phone, but it does not make a huge difference, so as to make you prefer it to К800. We can even say that it makes a very slight difference. If you’re looking for a good cameraphone and you care about the stylish design a lot, then maybe К810 will do the job. One of the best available cameraphones, it features also a very good flash, detailed images with realistic colors. If you, however, are interested in an all-in-one device, then Nokia’s N95 is much ahead in the game, combining a better camera with a smartphone functionality, WiFi and GPS. Anyway, our only criticism to К810 is that it is just a three-band GSM, without EDGE and has just a one-band UMTS, which limits its full-range use in America.
- Stylish design
- Thinner than the K800
- Improved sound quality
- Lack of EDGE
- Camera quality is worse than the K800
does the k810i come with a memory card ?

I've had the k810 for 2 months and i can say i'm glad i bought it. In fact, i can say it has some differences compared to K800: *K810's price was 450 USD, K800 was 469 USD where i bought it. *K810's screen is brighter and more colorful *K810 comes with a 128mb card, k800 comes with a 64mb card *K810's keypad is more comfortable *K810's camera doesn't open in your pocket *Camera works very fine, i compared it with pics taken by k550 and k800, and they seem to be more colorful, maybe a little bit darker than k800, but not worse *Unfortunately, battery life isn't good enough, i use my phone as an ipod and i have to plug it everyday *Screen is small, so small that cheaper models have it (w580) *No flash, no vibration *Amazing style, but it tends to get very, very dirty *Screen gets scratches easily *The camera shooter button isn't as good as k800's. That's all, I strongly recommend k810 if what you're looking for is a Good CAMERA-phone, and not a mp3 player, a video recorder, a video player or an overall good phone. -Nick
