    k750 is almost same as w700i.
    k750i has autofocus, w700i hasn't
    w700i comes wid 256MB card, k750i doesnt
    w700i has Walkman logo, k750i doesnt
    Both have same sound quality
    in my opinion, k750i look better
    plus w700i may have more battery life, but i am not sure

    W700i camera does not have autofocus, which is a major disadvantage as compared to the K750i camera
    On the other hand, u can flash the K750i with W800i firmware, and get the Walkman media player
    Also, the K750i looks much better than the W700i anyday
    So, I would suggest the K750i

    SE doesnt support 3G & symbian softwares so make a wise decision before you buy,try Nokia 6630 which is cheaper than K750i it have all good features which SE lacks.

    hi guys
    see w 700 i dedicated phone for music
    if u carefully watch the walkman series can switch on in off line mode
    that means without catching network
    tecknilly most of the power is consumed by the network so most of your battery is saved that u can utilise lisining to music
    while as the earphone is concern it provides those flaps so that it fits your ear as it is flexible to give optimum sound quality by blocking the outside sound also while camera is concern the auto focus it only useful for close photograph
    so it is up to u what is your priority music of photograph
    on to me if i were u i would choose the w700
    because the camera quality is not bad

    I think the W700i is better. It has better (and richer) looks (K750i kinda looks cheap). The sound quality of the special walkman headset(HPM-70) is awesome. Also comes with a more capacious card(so you don't have to worry about buying a new one right away). The lack of auto focus shouldn't be a major problem. I would also suggest you take a look at Nokia 6681 and Samsung X700, excellent phones.

    get a K750i...

    buy HP-70 earphones(walkman series one) as an accessory and u'll have the sound quality exact as w700i coz k750i also has megabass and also get a 1 gb card...the whole package i.e. k750i + 1 gb card + HP-70 shud cost u arnd 14.5K...

    and later on upgrade ur k750i to w800i ...thats it, thats all u need....autofocus is a must if you need accurate good quality pictures...

    i also think that k750i looks more decent and also it has a sliding camera cover...which is again a good thing for the camera lens and the battery life is also very good

    w700i is also as good as k750i except the autofocus and sliding but at the end it depends on u....go to the showroom have a look at both of the phones and then think and decide that which one pleases u most and than go for that coz both of them are good so u wont loose anything.....thats the best way to buy a phone...here in this forum we can only advice u.....but ultimately its what u want, so go to the showroom and see what ur heart says....

    ENjoy...

    there are very fine differences between SE k750 and w700

    focus
    k750 has auto focus (AF). and w700 has fixed focus (FF) lense.
    fixed focus means, everything from a minimum distance to infinity is in focus. for w700 the minimum distance is something like 4.8cm.... (check on the camera lense)
    auto focusing in k750 takes a second or more. till the rectangle becomes green.
    where as for fixed focus u can just press the button... no need to focus. it is truly 'aim n shoot'.
    but, with focusing (AF) you can do some tricks after experience. especially with macro mode. and u can get appriciable results.
    for normal user fixed focus is best.

    there are few more differences in camera

    zoom
    in w700 you can not zoom whilst in higher resolution (1632x1224)... a big minus! but i think thats the limitation due to fixed focus...
    also, u can zoom 2x for the picture size 640x480
    i havn't checked it. but, then the specified 4x zoom must be for the smallest size 160x120

    flash
    here w700 has a winning point
    in k750 images taken with flash turns yellowish in shade
    but w700 renders colors correctly with flash

    camera cover
    again w700 has plus point with the cover
    the sliding camera cover of k750 damages photo sensor of camera
    it affects physical stability of mobile when kept on plain surface
    also, the metal coating of camera cover normally sheds off after overuse
    w700 has a button which rotates a small lid... i feel that is better


    some other differences to notice

    sound quality
    this is not my personal opinion but, the sound quality seems to be less than w800 and almost equal to k750

    battery
    w700 uses lithium ion battery (Li-Ion)
    whereas, k750 uses lithium polymer battery (Li-Po)
    they both claim to be having same talktime... but the batteries are different
    if u guessed it, the lithium ion are cheaper!

    memory card
    considering the price, u can easily replace ur memory card for cheaper rates. so this can not be a point of difference here.
    my friend got 1gb in exchange with 256mb for the difference of rs. 900.
    but, k750 supports cards upto 2gb. whereas, w700 has 4gb cards available & might go up to 8gb. more than enough space for music! so w700 has a big plus here.

    price
    there is hardly a price difference of rs. 1000
    which should not be a major issue

    and after all the w700 has software features of w-series... for walkman
    or you can also try the options by suave_guy
    but flashing is not that easy... so be careful


    verdict
    if you are music addict, choose w700
    if you are keen in camera, avoid w700

    The sound quality of W700i is better than K750i, way better. I don't think there is any reason to choose K750i over W700i.

    W800i had autofocus... if w700i is exact replica of the former than it must also have auto focus....

    sound quality of speakers is almost same like k750
    the difference is in the headsets
    i don't have the exact headset model right now
    no doubt those headsets are better than k750
    they just seem to be slightly inferior to w800... but shouldn't be an issue

    about software & security....
    java phones hardly has any security issues
    and the software is stable. more stable than any symbian phone...

    and yes, the exact minimum distance for w700 camera is 4.3cm... i just checked it
    k750 has 4.8cm

    although it hardly matters... i gave it just for the details

    I m about to buy a K750i too, but the current price drops in sony phones has again confused me

    K750i in Lucknow : Rs 12.5k
    W700i : Rs 13.7k

    K750i - Autofocus + walkman brand, UI + 256 MB Card = W700i

    if u not into imaging then W700I is what u should get....u won't miss autofocus, besides the camera shutter of W700i seems better then K750i (good for taking secret pics:D)...& 256 MB standlone card costs about Rs 2000

    although...if u getting a phone, for camera only, then get K750i, if camera is not the most important thing for u, then get W700i
