Good Phone, No Memory.

Pros
At the time it came out, 2 mega pixels was about as high as cameras went. So 1.3 mega pixels was pretty good too. It doesn't quite stack up today, but this phone is no longer available. One of the first 3G phones, it had video calling and 3G data speeds which was amazing. You could also download full music tracks (and fast!). I love the video call and vodafone live link shortcut keys on the sides of the phone and the little locks for removing the battery cover - They make the phone different and that little bit special. The camera had a cover and a light which was pretty cool and fairly unheard of back then! It had a radio with RDS which was also pretty cool. It was a really solid phone too - a little heavy, but it felt indestructible, and thats awesome.

Cons
The main and almost only bad point to the phone was the memory. It had 32MB free space and that's hardly enough. Considering an average MP3 track is 3MB, that means you can store 10 tracks and you won't have much room for anything else. This ruled using the phone as an MP3 player out. Quite disappointing considering one of the huge features of 3G that Vodafone marketed was the music downloads. Another thing that could be considered a con is the Vodafone software. Certainly not as nice as the default Sony Ericsson software, but really its not so bad. Stick on a nice theme and you can forget the Vodafone icons. The only other thing that could be considered a con was that it used Sony Ericsson's older connector (the one before the fastport) and it wasn't too reliable. It fell out, got dirt in it easily, became loose easily... The new fastport is much better and the K750i and W800i which were released around the same time both had the newer port. I just wish they put that on the V600i!

Conclusion
The V600i at the time was amazing (and amazing value for me as I got it cheap). It was one of SE's first 3G phones and it had some really great, advanced features like video calling, which at the time seemed like the way to go. 3G data speeds were a huge step up, downloading a music track in 10 seconds once or twice! The V600i looked very very stylish and felt good in the hand. It had a good camera for the time, and some good extra features such as the light and radio. In my opinion it was one of the best that year when it came out. The only thing that really held the phone back was the lack of memory, because at the time most people were finally becoming clued up about things and knew 32MB wasn't a hell of a lot for storing things. As a result, with this phone the owner would always be deleting files to make space for new things, etc. Quite a nuisance. Despite this, the phone performed well and was an excellent purchase!

Verdict
4 (out of 5)
