I've had this phone for a week and here's my findings:
- design, colours etc.. (in my opinion)
- feature rich
- MP3 and FM radio sound quality is excellent
- Sync with PC easy
- battery life
- transfer with bluetooth quicker than expected
- feels nice to hold
- USB cable comes bundled with phone (instead of having to buy separately)
- generates interest from other people "Oooo whats the phone??"
- ability to have WAP, GPRS, and email settings sent to you from Sony Ericsson website instead of having to wait on the phone to talk to your carrier.
- volume of tones etc.. is very good
- reception pretty good
- screen rendering issues after playing games (eg entering a phone number makes the screen show some incorrect rending)
- sync with Mac is crap (not sure if this is issue with the phone or isync - neither would suprise me! Yet to find a phone that works well with a Mac)
- earphones hard to get used to
- last night the screen went bright white for approx 10 seconds for no apparent reason
- keylock doesn't lock all the keys (eg. had it in my pocket and took it out to discover the walkman had been activated...)
- 100% better than Samsung and Motorola phones (I've had them and I hate them!)
- nearly on par with Nokia phones, personally think Nokias are a little bit better (more robust and less buggy) but I would definitely recommend this phone as an alternative.
- get it if you want a feature rich phone with each function working well, including the job of just being a phone!
need a new phone. Someone tell me what i should get as the best thing out there overall.
Can I see whats on the Phone & Mem stick using bluetooth with my computer?
And then can I copy music across?
It is a a cheap phone and you do get value for your money so why not, go for it.
i really want to buy this phn but i am confused...is tere any one can gv me an advice that what should i do? i like every thing about this phn but on this web i see a lot of comment about this phn
is ther any one presently using this phn....pls mail me with your advice.
This Phone is worth to buy and it has an amazing clearity people compare with the rates for it to be expensive in front of a k750i but truely speaking this is amazing phone and worth to buy the sound the clearity and everything in it is just amazing the battery power for the phone on music only is also tremendous i always believed in nokia but then i thought of using a K750i and then i switched to w800i and i think out of all the phones that i have ever used i think this is the best phone trust you don't buy it you will regret a nice phone.
hey mark.. you say that this phone looses to a digi cam? its not too bad for me.. its not a camera after all, its a PHONE!!
SE's SMS memory is not shared with the phone memory.. it has its own capacity. Why you need to store 1000 sms for?
how many messages this phone can store?
i've got a little over a hundred sms in my inbox and around 68 in my sent folder. a message prompt out saying it's 95% full. crazy, my ngage only had about 3Mb inboard memory, and manages to store >1000 messages. this one has 10times more than that but only allows us to store 100++ messages? Ohhh, no!
activate ur camera and change it to video shooting mode. click on setting and then from "Save To", change it to memory stick.
And hey, the phone doesnt allow u to play full song for ur msg tone.Funny.
I bougth this phone few days ago and i realizaed that the volume of the earphone in very low, does enybody has this problem, the sound only come from the back speaker and the front earphone does not sound.
After having this phone for 10 days I have liked the design feel and build quality of this phone until this morning when my screen isn't working anymore.
Over all I think the phone is good but just the same as any phone you can buy, I got this phone after a long line of Nokia's that only get improved from one model to the next and I just felt like a change. After getting used to layout between the phones I have realised that they are the same.
I am really disappointed with the camera on the phone as the quality is well crap compared to my digi cam. if you want to see picture examples you can see them here: http://spaces.msn.com/members/awindowtomylife the creamfields pictures where taken with this phone. all others with my digi cam.
i now somebody already put this question but i did not see the answer;why the cam in video mode shoots only for 10 sec?can you change this?if yes,how?pls help me.my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
what kind of formats can the SE w800i support on both music and real player
I was wondering if someone could help me with what seems a trivial problem.How do you rename photos taken by the phones camera.It doesnt have a rename option unlike photos that are sent to you and are stored in pictures.Thanks
P.S This phone is just great!
this is the ultimate in cellphone tech spec . when on vacation who needs bring a digital camera,video cam,mp3 player... just bring your sony ericsson W800.........w800 rules...32gb card on the way ....beat that nokia
thi is the best cellphone in the world and the sony ericsson k750 you have my pleasure
Oh god, this going nowhere. What happens if japanese people do not use their own products???
There are some facts. Whether japanese people do use sony or not sony is the best brand in electronics. In phones, sony ericsson is just as good as nokia if not better. I used to be such a guy, nokia rules, all else crap.
And how do you know japanese people do not use sony ericsson? Have you asked them all? And you told that they think ibm the best computers. Than that's a reason not to trust them right? Ibm is just crap. nothing more.
All these put aside, if japanese people said all of a sudden sony ericsson is the best nokia is a bad brand, what would you do? say that sony ericsson is the best phone? Nah, come on, whether you agree or not this phone is better than every phone nokia has at the moment. I don't give a damn about 8800 or N90. 8800 doesn't even have memory card! N90, a really good phone but not as good as this one.
Please do not try to use other people's opinions to talk bad about this one. And you don't even know what the general public in Japan think of sony ericsson.
I checked D600's specifications and could not see anything that would make that one beter than this one. Please point those specs that you think is better.
I Understand that a lot of people love nokia, I like nokia as well. But just because nokia is your prefered brand in phones doesn't mean that sony ericsson is bad. "please go away from our market!" what the hell?! This sound like 10-year-old children. I can't understand, if you don'like classical music can you say that beethoven sucks? I don't like eric clapton, but he is good musician. I don'T say he shouldn't play or something like that. All I can think of your reaction at the moment is that you have given a lot of money for your "best" nokia phones and can't stand to see a better phone with a better price.
This will get nowhere. Sony ericsson is good. And W800i is the best entertainment phone on the market. Be it camera, be it mp3 player. It kicks ass. Nokia should do better than what they have done until now for your words to be reasonable...
