The K800i is probably the first phone I've used that actually has a half decent camera. The camera in question is 3.2 megapixel but don't always just assume that more megapixels are better: a large part of what makes a camera any good is its image sensor, in other words the microchip that converts the image into a digital signal that can then be electronically recorded. Sure the lens and the amount of megapixels are important but without decent electronics the pictures will still look rubbish.
Sony have brought their digital camera expertise to the K800i and the pictures will look shockingly good for anyone that is used to taking pics on a phone. The quality is comparable to a fairly good camera from a few years ago - I know that sounds like anything but high praise but it's comparative, realistic and given the state of most phonecameras I'd say was very high praise indeed.
The camera function actually works a lot like other Cybershots in that it can be activated simply by sliding down the cover. This is great for taking fast snaps but could be prone to sliding open and consuming your battery whilst in your pocket. You can take pictures by either using the joystick or with a dedicated camera button on the phone's side. The advantage to using the dedicated button is that you can set the focus more accurately by pressing lightly, waiting for the bleep then pressing all the way to get a perfectly focused shot.
The flash is fairly decent and much better than those LED-style ones but it can give your subjects a slightly blue-ish hue. You can edit your photos onboard the camera and remove red-eye, add effects such as sepia and negative and crop them. The LCD screen is very bright and clear and is ideal for framing and viewing shots.
The camera also has red-eye reduction and steadyshot so taking pictures in low light is vastly improved on the majority of other camera phones.
As a phone the K800i performs very well with great call quality, clear ringtones and a very attractive user interface. The games may be network dependant but mine came with a brilliant crazy golf game and a superb looking (but difficult) tennis one.
The K800i is a brilliant camera phone and if that's what you're looking for then you should really try one out. I think you'll be impressed with the photos and at this price it's a bit of a steal!

 So good I bought two!

This is a really great phone. I had one and sold it but ended up buying another one as could not find anything else as good. I now have the silver version as featured in the latest James Bond film.

Good points:
Great camera - 3 megapixel with auto focus. Hold the button down until the phone beeps and you see the white box turn green. Metal slide keeps it safe from scratches and when opened, automatically starts the camera even when you have keypad lock on - great for quick snaps. It also has a 'real' flash rather than a useless LED light!
Features:
Great calendar - with alarm clock which wakes you up but allows you to turn the phone off at night to save battery. Tasks list & Notes. Code memo which can store all your secret passwords but can only be accessed with the code.
Music player - to play all your MP3 tracks. Lets you sort by Artist/track or create playlists.
Entertainment - FM radio, Video player and editor, sound recorder, Bluetooth remote control - allows you to use your phone as a cordless presenter for PowerPoint presentations etc. Bluetooth V2 USB stick required.
Contacts - Loads of storage for all your contacts and their various numbers/birthday/notes/email & postal addresses
File Manager - Lets you browse everything stored on your phone memory and memory card. Very handy to find and select pictures/videos/music/ringtones/themes/games/applications
USB Cable - This is supplied and very useful for transferring pictures and other files to/from phone

Bad points:
3G drains the battery - I was disappointed with the battery life at first until I figured out you can turn off 3G in Settings=Connectivity=Mobile Networks=GSM/3G Networks (select GSM only). Now lasts much longer and am very happy with performance. Only really need 3G for fast internet browsing and video calls, neither of which I use on this phone.

 Great Phone

at first i was a bit concerned about the buttons as they are really cramped up together, but its so worth it as u get such a bigger screen :D and you adapt to the buttons and it becomes easier to write a text with. this has a great camera with an amazing flash for a phone, you never need to worry about if you're photo is going to come out wrong. for those like me who are still learning about photography, they even have a small program on the phone to ensure u get the best pictures and gives you tips on lighting, scenery and how to take your photo :D

with easy menu's and shortcuts that you can personalise, this means you can access the music player, messaging, calendar or even bluetooth at the touch of a button.

I would recommend getting a memory card for the phone, you'll need an M2 Card, which you can buy from play at £16.49 for a 2GB card or 4GB for double the price, this beats any other retailer as the phone and the memory cards are so much higher in price

i think i'll have this phone for a long time.
for £79.99 this phone is a great buy
dont go for those walkman phones with the fancy buttons and the 2MP Camera, this has exactly the same thing, just they re name the "music player" with "walkman" and put a play and stop button on the phone! and doesnt have such a great camera as this one
so if you're thinking of getting this phone for christmas for someone, then go for it, they will not be dissapointed
sony ericssons have always been a personal favourite, and they will remain my favourite for a long time

 Good phone

When i had this phone at christmas i couldn't wait to have it, when i finally did it was even better than i could have imagined. The camera is brilliant, it really is, there is soo much u can do with it u can choose how many pixcels u want to use, you can warp the images etc. And the camera isn't the only good thing, you also get a brilliant walkman type feature. The bad points, well to be honest there arent that many, however when i had mine i had to setup my MMS online but it was quite straight forward but other than that it was fine.
