    I know this question is asked several times before but still iam confused.
    K750i + 256MB card + Walkman earphones = Good music + Good Cam = Rs.~13000.
    W700i(includes 256MB card + Walkman earphones) = Excellent music + Good Cam = Rs.~11,700.

    Why is K750i better than W700i other than the Auto Focus Camera?
    Why do many people suggest K750i?

    K750i's music playing ability can be easily (and cheaply) upgraded using the HPM-70 headset and 1gb memory stick. It's music player is exactly similar to the Walkman player in W700i. But W700i's camera connot be upgraded with K750i's autofocus. Thus K750i has an advantage here. That is why i feel it's better.

    except AF, there should be no other reason to not to select w700i. w700i has bluetooth 2.0 whereas k750i lacks it.

    So which should i go for? And i dont want to do firmware upgrade to K750i to W800i as it voids warranty.

    It depends on how much importance you lay on a cell phone's camera. Actually autofocus is the only major difference between the two. If you think you can live without it, buy W700i. If you absolutely must have autofocus, then go for K750i. There aren't any other major differences between them.

    actually if u dun click too many macro photos then i'd suggest to go in for w700i. but if u are ready to spend 1k more (abt 14k) then go in for w810i. it has everything plus stereo spekers + 512mb stick.

    I totally agree with infra_red_dude. If W810i comes within your budget, then you should seriously consider that cell. Its kinda like K750i+W700i+edge+512mb card+speakers in one package.

    Price of W700i is Rs.11700 in bangalore(Viveks). Are there any joystick problems with this like the K750i?

    W700i users in my friend circle never had key problems.

    Autofocus is a main feature for a Camera. If camera is ur priority than music, go for K750i. Ask for a exchange of K750i handsfree with that of W700i. Both are compatiable. If you are lucky he may give exchange it for free. Infact I got it for free exchange! :D W700i has excellent music playback due to Walkman branding. However K750i music playback is also not far behind. It's good.

    Hey! Better put all questions at once! :D Walkman series SE phones have slightly higher volume than regular ones -doesn't make a big deal though.
    I am from Pune - no idea of Bangalore prices dude....(My ex-city was Blore!) ;-)

    ok, first make it clear as to what is the primary use of the camera. if you don't wanna spend much and aren't very keen on macro mode photos (w700i clicks good ones from a particular short distance too), i'd suggest go in for w700i.

    frankly, i feel this:
    if you want AF and phone wid decent storage space and good headset, you said the k750 combo wud cost around 13k. but w700i wid all the features minus AF will lighter ur wallet by around 11.7k. however consider this :

    w810i = all features of w700i + AF + 512mb + speakers + edge = k750i + 512 mb + speakers + edge + bluetooth 2.0 = ~14k
    w700i = k750i + bluetooth 2.0 + 256mb card + hpm 70 earbuds + walkman brand - AF - edge = 11.7k
    k750i (AF) + 256mb + hpm70 earbuds - bluetooth 2.0 - walkman brand - egde = 13k

    from the above equations, i can draw this conclusion:

    if you want AF + decent mp3 support (media player widout flashing + fontapia earbuds) + decent storage space then go in for w810. coz by just spending 1k more than k750i + accessories, you get 256mb extra + speakers + edge + walkman brand all out of the box.

    if you can live widout AF and edge, you get everything else in w700i (saving of 2.3k. buy it.

    it makes sense to buy k750i if you gonna use everything as stock (ie you don't upgrade anything!). doesn't make sense to spend upto 13k and get all the features when you can get everyting and more and more by spending just 1k more for w810i!

    also, i bought my w700i way back in may end from maxtel. i paid 15.6k there whereas everywhre else i was getting it for 16.5k. that time his price was the lowest. i dunno abt others. i'll give you his contact info if required. but better enquire in about 3-4 places before deciding on the place to buy!

    cheers! :)

    Does the w700i not sound as good as the 810i? Is the speaker on the w700i not stereo?

    the w700i doesn't haf autofocus. its confirmed. w700i has mono speakers onboard. its volume is definitely louder than w810i.

    also abt joystick problems. the w700i is only abt 6 months old whereas the k750i is abt an year old. so ppl haf spent more time wid k750i and hence the problems are known. we may hafta wait for any probs that may arise due to prolonged use of w700i. but afaik, SE has done a good job of joystick in w700i. i feel its slick and more robust than most other phones. however, if someone's too paranoid abt joystick, then its better to buy w810i. no joysticks, no worries!
    __________
    it says it has AF and also memory stick pro micro. i know abt memory stick pro, duo and memory stick micro. i've never heard heard of memory stick pro micro! typo there!!!
