New Phone - Sony Ericsson P1i

Postby kenc51 » Sat Dec 01, 2007 8:35 am

I've just got myself a new phone!
I needed to replace my trusty Palm Treo 650 as it was a little too big and had no WiFi.

It cost way too much, but I love my gadgets - This is my third phone in less than a year :roll:

With work, I get free DSL, free hot spot access anywhere in the country and also a free VOIP a/c.
I can now make free VOIP calls when I'm in work, in the city centre and just about anywhere ;)
I can also get mail e-mail easilly and not have to deal with the painfully slow GPRS network :)

that looks sexy.. how long does the battery last? When you text message someone does it show the entire conversation like a Treo 650 or each individual message like a Samsung Blackjack?

It shows the whole conversation like the Treo ;)
You can also set the display to portrait view, great for moves and webpages!

I don't know the battery life yet, but I have Wifi on and it's set to check for mail every 30mins between 8am and 11pm.
I just got it yesterday afternoon (4pm - 24hrs ago), so from a full charge and wifi constantly on checking mails, my battery now stands @ 64% (I'm also using it a lot since it's new)

I don't intend on leaving WiFi on though. I'd say battery life is way better than the Treo and is compairable with standard GSM phones (with wifi & bluetooth off)
It cost me €475 though :shock: (I've sold the Treo and my old Sony W300i for €200)

I just got a new SE this week too ^_^

Though i went for the k850, instead of the smart phone p1.

The 5MP cam was the selling point for me, and i managed to get a cracking 24month contract with o2 at: £20/month, with 200mins free calls and 400 free texts, which should be more than I'll use ^_^

The k850 wouldn't do for me, I need wifi for e-mail & a qwerty keyboard.
I got used to the keyboard on the Palm Teo and can't go back to the keypad again.

My battery is now @ 10% from a single charge on Friday, which is very good considering the extended use it has gotten!
