Living with the new Sony K750i, 1st day
After studying the Manual for about 2 hours, while setting up the phone. It was easier then expected, however the interface is not as intuitive as a Nokia. Strangely there were a number of Icons that appear on top, the E Mail Icon, Voice Message and two other icon that is not on the manual. I manage to get rid of the E Mail Icon, (keep on coming back) but the other 3 icons cannot be remove, even assisted by the friendly handphone man who promise to look into it, but say it could be sim card related. (Another Sim card was tried out and the icons was not there)
Camera, interface is intuitive to me, what good is you switch on the camera by moving the camera lens cover, you can start snapping away. The setting is quite straight forward, with the 64MB memory card having the capacity of 150+ snaps (when empty) at 2Mb at fine resolution. However in the settings, there is a Panorama mode that I am not sure how to work it out, nor is it in the manual. Took a few trail snaps, and one shot was just two inch from a watch result with good result. The 4 x digital zoom only works on low frame size, not on the 2 MB photo size.
Radio, works, interface straight forward, no hassles here, just plug in the earphone provided, and search, however I don’t fancy having to carry the earphone around to listen to the radio.
File Management, Setting up the Laptop to communicate with the phone is straight forward but took a long time to load the software, however when loading MP3 into the memory card, I could not play it on the Media Player. After trying this and that we finally found out that the Memory Card could not be detected by the phone. Problem solve by rubbing the Memory Card contact points. Photo taken was transfer over with out any problems by linking via the USB and drag and drop method in to the computer memory.
Normal Use, using the phone for calls, message, was normal, what I miss is the Nokia multiple fields for calls made where I could track when and how many call I made to a resent call.
Organizer, The organizer part is simple, but straight forward, with Calendar, Task & Notes.
Good : Fairly Intuitive Interface in most part.
Bad : Manual does not cover all aspects. Detail explanation not there.
Verdict: A step up then the Nokia 3120.
