I have owned the W810I for a few months now and I still love it!!! I had the slvr L7 before and this Sony is fantastic! I have a slight ringing in my ears and could hardly hear the conversation on the L7 but now, I have to turn it down on the w810--Great sound!
All pictures have come out great! Excellent movie clips as well--even magnified 4x!
I have yet to download any music to it (my pc troubles). I admit I was a motorola fan V600, v551 and slvr--but no more!!!
I highly recommend the Sony w810i-got mine from a great seller on ebay. P.S. Get the krusell case!!!
I believe we all have our preferences and it is important to let the manufacturers know what we want. To those that complain of low sound, I don't hear the problem with the conversation, If you are trying to hear the mp3 w/o headphones...it is not a boombox.
Bottom line--Get it! Great phone!
it's the best phone i've ever had! i highly recommend it to anyone who wants a new phone.
I just bought this phone in white today, just for my collection of SE walkman phones.
The display is BRIGHT, it's awesome. Even my w850i is not that bright bur more crisp of course.
The sound is also LOUD, I dunnow why everyone said that the sound is low. Maybe it's just me? But w850i is of course plays louder.
The camera is VERY NICE, one thing that beats W850i with the autofocus, the 2 Led flash and everything.
Typing messages is VERY EASY AND CONVINIENT, you can type fast in this phone without getting any wrong typo.
I havent test the battery since i just got it.
I wanted a w800i also, but all stores are out of stock, in fact there wont be anymore coming T_T i know that
I just thought maybe they still had left overs or somtin
I also saw a W610i the silver one, but it just look too...
how do i say, squarish? There's something missing in the design. Unlike the w800i series above

Is the video quality on the w810 better than the w300 or worst? Please help!
To all that bothered to reply/attack my post:
There are many, much worse phones on the market, and I must somewhat agree that in its price range w810 is one of the top choices. YET, my _personal_ opinion is that I won't be able to put up with bugs 1 to 4 at least.
To get a memory stick ... I want to be able to put new songs in the memory card without waiting for 2 hrs.
The shutter sound is turned off by muting the phone only for certain firmware versions (does not work for me).
Anni, unless this is some new form of stenographic English, for your own good please fix your spelling, your post looks atrocious.
Man dun mind but u talkin nonsense literally,hah hav u eva used N70/N72 which is in de same price range?or else i feel u hav not used any fone b4 this one isnt it?i hav used 6233,N72,N70 i hav been using nokia frm de last 4-5 yrs i keep changin fones in every 2-3 months,i hav been an ardent fan of nokia...but now wen i was piss*d off frm nokia i got myself W810i and it simple rox far betta then Nokia fone in dat price range..Best 2MP cam(MUCH MUCH BETTA DEN DIOZ N SERIES,Gr8 Sound Quality(BETTA DEN ANY OTHER COMPANY,Good Luks,Good Battery Backpup,ultra fast file transfer,portable speakers and 512MB card bundled in de sales pack...etc etc...wat else u want??at dat price u want 2 buy sum country or wat?plz for god sake if u kno nothin then dun u try to Fox others wid such post.i m sorry for bein rude..but at da same time i dun think i wrote anythin wrng!!bye tc
and you can shut the shutter sound by turning you phone into silent mode...simply by holding "#" in standby mode....
yup, the shutter sound thing and the orange piece are what YOU DON'T LIKE......and you should have tried the phone before buying it....zzz..
uhmm,is it true that our w810 can use 4GBmemorystick?....sad to see that that sony din't make HS-series for 4GB^^......
the only real thing u said is that the shooter noice can't go off..
now show us any other 200 euros phone that has the function and quality of the w810i and i"ll eat it (2mp great camera ,radio,mp3's ,512 card in package..etc)!! come on !! nokia 5200 has allmost the same price with this one and it just suck!
u don't like the orange on this phone...then don't buy it ..buy a a slow rubbish nokia ...n80 maybe ? (5 minuts untill the phone starts and in another 10 restarts) n73? so u can glue the joystick so won't fall off ..u want faster transfer ..get a damn memory stick
Ok, I got it and it's a disappointment:
1. file transfer is extremely slow ~10min for 100MB.
2. the mp3 player software is retarded, com'on... it is ridiculous not to have an option to play your files as they are organized in folders.
3. the radio needs earphones to work - so what if I am using a bluetooth piece?
4. cannot switch off camera (shutter) sound - the most retarded feature of them all.
5. low overall sound level.
6. ugly orange shiat all over the phone case.
7. does not come with a converter for regular earphones. I bought one on the web and it turned out he manufacturer had reversed the left and right channel...
8. Talk time is exaggerated and java games consume shiatload of power, but charging is fast.
9. the CPU is not exceptionally fast either.
10. MP3 player sound quality is lower than a standard MP3 player on the market.
