seeing alot of negative comments about this phone, can anyone tell me when it should get better, or when the second shipment or unannounced version or whatever is coming out?
hey sony!! listen! dont waste this perfect design, make a walkman version of this fon! i salute you guys!
can any1 tell me if it haz got 3G in dat phn>>???? :S ....:D ,..... :P
Its $600 n a 3.2MP SE810 is nearly $300. So whats fun in spending double the money just for 2MP more? better option is get K810 + a brilliant 8MP Sony digital camera. CONSIDER IT!!!
Agreed with the comments below about the camera giving up pitch black photos every so often when using auto flash in dark conditions, the camera matrix seems to try and focus in on any light source it can find and it sometimes causes the flash to remain off when it should be on. Still its a minor thing really and im confident sony will get a software update out to help/fix it. All in all the phone is great. Touch keys work like a dream. Keypad takes a little to get used too but doesnt every new phone?!? The new Sony XMB (Cross Media Bar) style UI is awesome, sound and volume from videos an music is v impressive and i came from a W850i and W800i before this. Video recording in QVGA 30fps is a welcome part upgrade (VGA would of been better true) especially when coming from CIF 15fps. Going to have a play with my housemates N95 when it arrives and see the pros an cons. All in all its classic SE, solid, substancial phone with innovative design and impressive build quality. Easy to use, customization is always a big bonus for me and i dont think anyone does it better than SE at the mo. Now i just need to wait for the Da Vinci Team to bring out the firmware so i can debrand the damn thing...O2 but alot o sh*t on there thats not needed!!! BUZ.
About the guy that said he might return his K850i to O2 because of the camera,
THE ANSWER IS: NO
WHY: I had a K810i and I thought the camera was ruined because it keeps taking dark pictures ( especially the background was dark ) and then I went to settings and turned of the flash because it was daytime and I took a picture and WOW !! The picture was amazing !
If it's night time then turn on the flash, it's amazing.
Just like the guy a few posts under me said ( you need to know how to take a picture the right way ). It depends on the environment you're in.
Hope this helps.
aight wateva, everywhere here is either on the side of K850 or the N95..i say both are exellent..just cuz u dont like one doesnt meant you call the other one "ridiculous". K850 is a fingerprint magnet, so it wont look as nice and glossy looking when your using it and the N95 8GB is a bit bulky but thats all..who cares if there are too many functions..u might not use them so what? plus the 8GB version has improved slider and improved battery life etc..cuz some of you people are still comparing this to the original N95
So bad phone, when I got it I thought it is gonna be good but then I realized that its В-Pad and touch keys are so akward to use, camera is dull and washed colors, grainy compared o my N95, these are the worst things.
I can ynderstand why this phone is so high rated? just because of stupid SE fanboys that would buy a piece of poop with SE brandung?
I give it 2:7:1 rate, because this phone created not for people with normal fingers but for aliend from outer space maybe.
How nice K750 and K800 were and how akward K850 is.
I think this fone will ruin cybershot reputation and will have high return rate.
Not widely available, but the specification is good, but the drawback is there is no WLAN. Why Sony Ericsson don't add up this interface in this nice phone?
hey just info for all the people who wish to buy the phone in Singapore..the cheapest price is 838...obviously not from SE directly..company vendors tend to hike up the price anyway...i cant wait to get this phone...
guys u dont know what u are talking about i hav this phone and the camera is brilliant u just confuse yourself for nothing...look solution is that when u are taking regular pictures in good light condition dont use the flash turn it completely off because when you put it auto it will make the picture dark so when u turn it off the pic will be good and it will never be dark and when u are in a poor light condition turn it to auto but dont capture far stuff or again the picture will get dark capture objects that is near you only and see the result....the camera is not bad at all but u hav to know how to use it corectly...and when u want to take video the screen gets dark so just put the night mode on when u want to record video but dont forget to put image stabilizer because in night mode the movements affect the video too much... just try my advices and the camera will be perfect just dont be so negative about the phone its the first software and it will improve soon to be better...
i am working in la cellphone store. we just got k850 early of this week .
I've tried the test with the K800 and K850 and it is ridiculous that the 3.2 is better than the 5MP, it's really annoying me now, gonna keep testin it tho! really want this one to be a success!
All the opinions that i saw, not even one is positive, its suppose to be the best camera phone of the year...
-Thick phone, dark picture, cleaning fingerprint every 10 min, small screen...no WIFI, high price and more!
I am a SE fan, but not a blind one! Don't waste you money away and wait for the SE K860!!!
What the hell do you need infrared for? And it's a regular size, and still smaller than the N95.
Please, Someone help me with the Dark Pictures! I mean, the K800 was an amazing camera but this thing is really annoying me now!!! Please help!
my flash is on auto!
when the flash is used you can't see the picture on the screen as it's so dark. when the flash is switched off the pic is still dark but it can be seen on the screen and it's 10 times better than with the flash. it's driving me nuts!!!!!
it's pointing more and more to a dodgy handset to me
