Sony Ericsson T650 Review
Years ago Sony Ericsson suspended the “T” series production; its last representatives were T610/T630. It was at the time, when most cameras took pictures with VGA resolution and the additional memory cards were a rarity.

Putting an end to the above series’ absence from the market, earlier this year the manufacturer presented two new models; today we will review the more function-rich one – Sony Ericsson T650. This model features all modern capabilities, some of them being a 3.2 mega pixel camera, 3G network support, and heaps of multimedia functions.

The sales package contains:

- Sony Ericsson T650 phone
- Desk stand
- Stereo headset
- Soft pouch
- USB cable and software
- Memory Stick Micro (M2)
- User guide

As we can see, the unit disposes of an abundant set, which will satisfy even the most demanding users. The Desk stand, apart from serving as a phone base, can play the role of a charging station. You may simultaneously connect the data cable or the headphones and thus exchange information with the computer or listen to music or the radio. In case the stand is being used only as such, the telephone is rather insecure, so one has to take special care not to knock it down. Not so with a plugged charging connector; this adds stability to the phone fixing and reduces the chance of knocking the phone to a minimum.

The headphones in the set are noise-reducing, with a transition connector for a standard 3.5mm jack. This feature makes them resemble those of the Walkman series, the more so as the set offers 3 sizes of ear-plugs, enabling the users to pick the ones that suit them best. The case is also very pleasant: it is black, made of textile matter, and perfectly matches the phone.

Normally, such accessories are to be found only in the sets of the highest-class series of the manufacturers, so the decision of Sony Ericsson to include it in the T650 package can only make us happier.

I picked up a T650i today to replace my k800i. It's smaller, it's better built, it's sturdy and those strange looking buttons on the keypad are actually really good for text input. they work great. the animated light themes are a nice gimic but it's an idea that's not been properly implemented yet. i just spent an hour remaking a theme i made for my k800 because from the 3 installed, i can't use any of them.. they are all dark with neon colour combinations... at least to my eyes...which makes it hard to use them on a daily basis... Also, there's some kind of funny time related easter eggs in this phone... tonight (31.10) i've got a screen full of animated pumpkins! i wonder what christmas has in hold for us? :) the newly designed desk stand is a joy to use, sturdy, secure and it looks great... along with the new ringtones, it looks like SE have finally accepted that Apple do a great job and have let themselves be infulenced in a positive way (imo) by the design and audio dept at apple... check out how similar the ringtones are to the iphone... my only gripe, and it's a big one is that the backlight is VERY YELLOW. It will add its own lovely tint of ochre to all your beautiful photos that you've made with the 3.2mpx camera. ALL my photos and background pictures have a yellow tint on this phone. SONY, if you're out there... please correct this problem with a firmware update in the near future. this is a fantastic phone but please make the colours bright and white again! Maybe it's only my phone but i don't think so... ? if you need a phone to make calls, sms, make snapshots, it has to be small, and with a super calendar to boot (that you can sync on a mac with isync), you can't go wrong with the T650i. I hope this review helps you to make up your minds. Bear in mind, i am extremely fussy when it comes to phones and if i find any problems or cool features over the next few days, i'll update this review... have fun :)

I know why the display is so yellowish. Coz the light sensor is working and it decrease your screen brightness up to 50%!! This is ridiculous since K770 light sensor - when working - only reduces the brigthness up to 10% so the screen will still look bright and crisp.

sorry to say that without 3rd party commercial software this thing won't sync with iSync. Returning mine for that reason alone...
