BELIEVE ME!! when you have a phone with a 16million colour screen u will NEVER go back to 256K the quality is awesome u can't believe what u r seeing it blows u away its that good, esp when taking 5mp photos everything is crystal clear, also the g600 is bundled with a 1GB memory card
well i work for vodafone in the UK, and i have had a go on this phone for a few days and it is really good. Its got the same menu as all the other sony's but its the camera that is amazing!! its realy good i advise to get this when its available.

N95 has some sliding problems like 5300 and 6270 but still works fine.
i think SE has its own pluses and nokia has its own
but obviously K850i will be a bigger hit due to PRICE and STABLE OS

At least there are still realist people in this world 'specially there at T3 GADGET MAGAZINE.
i have heard about a special xmb for psp in the k850.Is it true?Has the k850 something for the psp (playstation portable)???
Don't grill me to hard, I usually love Sony phones, my last 4 phones have been Sony (k68i,k600,w800,k800) and they have all been ahead of the game in one aspect or another. However with this latest offering I am disappointed it seems to be behind the field. This phone should have been out last year to compete with the N95 as it is a similar spec. Its time Sony picked up the pace and updated there flagship camera phone to be full screen (touch) much like the Apple iphone or Lg's new KU990 (5mp Prada style phone). It would also be nice if they put WLAN in. I will be sad to leave the Sony camp as they do offer robust phones with decent battery life but this year I think I’m going for the LG KU990 … maybe next year they will be back at the cutting edge and I will be back like as shot!
this is a good mobile.....if i rich enough i will buy both n95 8gb and this 1...both combine, than i own the world greatest mobile on my hand..hahaha
come on SE, release now!!! i want that either...Nokia already release n95 8gb on oct, what the heck with you man, not even finish firmware?!!! You construction not even complicated then n95, why nokia release 1st and you'll be the next?
hey sony ericsson's company, when will you release sony k850 to the market. now i am waiting to buy it for too long. please make it to the market soon!!!!!!!!!!!
As far as I read recent opinions, how come Nokia fans trying to ruin Sony Ericsson's reputation for the K850? K850 is not a Symbian phone unlike Nokia N95 which has everything. K850 is a cameraphone! do not compete them!
Anyways peace be with those Nokia fans. And BTW, Nokia fans, I guess are rich and like wasting money because N95 and N95 8GB are expensive, unlike K850, its affordable for an higher end phones!
Had a N95 ever since it first came out. Bored of it now and gone off smart phones. Now using the cool SE T650i and this baby will be my next one.
Nokia n95 is a common as muck now. This is the new kid on the block!
There are predictions the K850 successor will have 3x optical zoom....I'd rather wait for that...happy with my K790a.
obviously the gsmarena review will give non proper review with a camera thats on a Concept K850i ?
couldnt they wait for the Proper real K850i to come out ?
its a Unfair review..
SONY is famous for very good cameras, and NOKIA for everything else. i am big SE and NOKIA fan but i must say that SE phones are for teens, and they are practical and NOKIAs phones are more for..... why wants to have this or any otter phone 3. generation, let me know. BIG: RHCP, Arctic Monkeys, Chemical Brothers, Gorilaz fan
TO KATARINA: Is sporty phone, and hes better looking than N95, but SONY ERICSSON phones are just a copy.
look my friend, the video and the picture quality of the n95 is like taken from a movie.=) its so pleasing to the naked eye.
just like comparing a regular cam(k850 cam) to a cam use to make movie(n95 cam)=)
love you my friend,
