Calendar: I found an annoying thing about the calendar feature in K750i. The calendar application provides no way to put a recurring appointment like birthdays, anniversaries etc. The calendar application on Nokia series 60 phones is a lot more user friendly. Nokia phones allow recurrent appointments and also show a brief event text at the top while in month view. It becomes frustrating in K750i when I have to click open each day to check out the appointments. The development guys at SE should look into it. Anyway, as far as the recurrent appointment is concerned, I am giving you 3 workarounds-
- Create a recurrent appointment on a Nokia phone and send to K750i via bluetooth or IR. K750i saves it as a recurrent appointment! Simple isn’t it?!
- Create your recurrent appointments in Outlook and sync the phone with Outlook. All appointments will saved on phone appropriately.
- Suppose you want to save John’s birthday. Create a dummy entry for John in phone book with bogus phone number. Save this entry and again come back to edit this contact entry. In the edit mode, the last tab option is for Info and Birthday. Edit the bith date here and save. You will be prompted to save it to calendar. Select ‘Yes’ and it will be saved as a recurrent event. You can delete the phone book entry safely with out affecting the calendar entry. For other purposes, you can use a descriptive name like ‘Ron’s Wedding’ or ‘Insurance Premium’ instead of John.
Video: A very less discussed feature in K750i is its ability to take screenshots from video files. Pause a running video and press [More] > [Capture Frame]. The screenshot will be saved in phone memory. The only limitation is that the picture will of 176×144 resolution. It is not possible to take screeshots in full-screen horizontal mode i.e. 220×176 resolution.
Have you ever felt the need to watch some part of a video in slow-motion? Well, its possible in K750i. While watching a video, move the joystick down. The frame rate will slow down. To continue playing at normal speed, press [Play]. Video can not be slow-motioned in full-screen mode, but once it is in slow-motion, it can be turned full-screen by pressing [More] > [Full Screen]
If you want to see your video even slower then pause the video. Now move the joy-stick down. With every downwards movement of the joy-stick, the video will advance one frame.
