Listen if u have money thn no one can regret W900 is way better thn any phone, but if you have ur boundaries, and being an economic thinker, after buying W550, u'll say oh my money didnt go in a waste ... and there's no difference b'w w550 and w550i, except for what we pronounce it ...
hi W550 user, i'm thinking to buy 550 but need u guys opinions before i buy. just wonder what is the different between W550 and W550i ? between W990 and W550 which 1 is nicer and better ? thanks in advance
Can this phone play all mp3 music/that we convert from CD by ourself coz I heard the SONY WALKMAN can only plays registered/ceritified?or something like that mp3
Bought this phone yesterday. (SE550i actually, what's the difference anyway)
I am no phone expert but I'll give it a 8.5.
Initially I wanted to buy a panasonic vs7, but I found too big for my liking and well, it doesn't have much memory compared to SEW550.
Display is good, after you take off the plastic flim on it. The orange theme of the phone put me off a bit, but I changed it to blue now.
Camera, despite boasting about 1.3MP, was not that great. Average pics taken I guess, but below my expectations.
The texting feature is a bit difficult to understand though (for ex-non-SE-users). I can't seem to get the hang of it. Kept stabbing at wrong buttons.
Sound quality is excellent, never heard anything like that on a mobile. But I supposed that it could be a bit louder. Anyone knows how to fix that?
Hey, does anyone know the various formats for video playback, which are compatible with the w550i besides Quicktime format?
Today a heart-shaking experience took place upon me... I had tht WormsForts game minimesed, My blue tooth was running a file transfer ... and just then i tried to open the walkman application, guess what, my phone hanged ! Just when my eyes were too big, the phone restarted ....
hahahhahhahha it was a dreadful experience hence i need you guys to not to open more then two applications at once ... or .... :)
Can i use the phone to listen to mp3's and radio in music only mode without a SIM-CARD in it???
can it transfer a mp3 that is more than 4mb of se w550i? how many kb can it store one hundred pictures and one hour of video recording. can it use mp3 as calling and messaging? i think the picture taken with the camera should be clear. please tell me more details about se w550i.
Yes!!! the price had been droped in my country gonna buy it soon!!!
Aayush, yeah the W900 may cost twice the price but u r gettin value for money. I mean just look @ the W550 and u will see the SE engineers created the phone for the people who jus want to hav a phone with reasonable capabilities. Its a good phone but still i wud prefer the W900 though u wud be paying the double for it. I dnt no what currency you use but where i live it wud cost us around R3500 (three thousand five hunderd rand its South African Currency)that is £318/$580/500e (I cant figure out how to do the euro sign)! So ill jus hav to get some more money!
alansm, the phone already supports Chinese characters. Just press and hold '#' when typing a message to bring up the languages menu.
Ya, W550i does not support memory card, rechard. The engineers at Sony Ericsson decided to provide a generous 256 MB of internal memory instead, though I won't deny that I would have preferred the former option.
Er, javi, it is spelt 'A-A-Y-U-S-H'. :)
Definitely the W550i, according to me, Mark.
XennoX, I agree with you that the W900i is infinitely better than the W550i, but it costs more than twice the price of W550i. W550i is the most value for money product in the market so far, when it comes to mobile phones.
See ya guys! ;)
Mark, i wud hav 2 recomend the W550, 6630 & D500 are OLD! The Motorola's hav a huge failure rate 1 in every 3 motorolas fails their users in the 1st month, so i wud hav 2 say go for the W550i.
Rechard, dont get this fone its a walkman phone for the budget conciouses person, no it cant take a memory card, so thats a waste and with only +- 250MB memory it has a small limit compared to its big brothers, the SE W800 & W900, to be honest go for the W900 +- 450MB internal + 2GB card means lots of mp3's/vids/pics, plus camera is brilliant, friend of mine is testing the W900 for the South African Market, and from what i hear & see it is an absolute brilliant phone!!! Its even got 3G which the W550i doesnt have!
truthfuli, ths cell iz onli gud for music. n ya, xcept for the cam pix, the other various images r good.
sup. well, my se w550i got flicked at a party....had it for 2 weeks.....bt waznt reali satisfied. cam aint tht clear. bt ballz. sound iz good. connection probs. ntn can beet nokia man.
