S710a or K750i????

ok im stuck for choice now. 😕 how many of you lot on here would advise getting the K710i over the S710a n for what reason??

I want good audio for MP3 playback through the headset but also the storage for as many songs as possible. the S710a has a 3.5 mm headphone jack but i read that the k750i doesnt and needs a seperatly bought dongle (dongle?). is this a problem and do you think it would limmit the sound? also although the camera is 2 megapixel the screen is smaller and i would really like a nice size display. can anyone clear up my choice problem.

cheers for any help or thoughts

Well I dont see any 3.5mm jack on my S710a. Just the half inch wide plug in connector at the bottom that the headset plugs into (right next to the charger connector).

Actually, the connection for a charger and headset is different on the K750 than from other Sony Ericsson phones, they arte going to use something totally different. The W800 is also different like the K750.

Here in this link they talk about and about both of the phones in general, enjoy!

Like I said before, if you're with Cingular I strongly recommend the S710a because it supports the 850mhz band which is one of the 2 main bands Cingular uses, and perhaps the single main band in your area! If you're with T-Mobile go with the K750.

The S710a does not have a 2.5mm jack but through the headset it comes with MP3's sound great and you wouldnt know the difference!

The K750 supports Memory Stick Duo PRO, the S710a only supports Memory Stuck Duo.

As you stated, the K750 has a smaller display and less resolution than the S710a. In my opinion, there's not much difference between 1.3 Megapixels and 2 Megapixels, but the K750 has auto focus!

Again, let your carrier be your maub deciding factor, if you're with Cingular, go ...

lol yeah kinda cheers. thing is i dont even know what singular is. I live in Leeds, England. id be buying the phone unlocked or simfree from www.Ebay.co.uk if anywhere to get around the mad prices. plus then i can just put my o2 sim card in it from my current phone.

iv looked more in depth at the k750i and i think it seems more suited to me. my only last worry is the sound volume as in several reviewing forums people have complained that it is quiet when listening through the headset. Do you know anything of the MP3 sound volume of the k750i? could you give me an idea of the Db's it can produce. my cd player at the moment gives out a maximum of 90Db but i never have it on full.

thanks in advance

Well that explains why you dont know what Cingular is, Cingular is like T-Mobile. So since you dont have to worry about the 850 band go with the K750.

I really dont know about the speaker on the K750, but every speaker ive heard on a Sony Ericsson phone has been nice and clear so thats not something you have to really worry about.
