Jay the people you bought it from possibly import them from China as they can buy them cheap in the Far East.
crazy_boy yes the headphones are black but as you have a standard 3.5mm headphone socket in the handsfree dongle you can use any headphones you like.
@nick - I recommend you w810,it's astonishing model. When i saw his pictures i fall in love with it. The phone is superb:)
To owners - Is realy the headphones in the package are black ? Are they different than w800's headphones? tnx
Hi,i just bought this phone online(onestopphone shop),and I am a bit confused about the handfree accessory is in black color rather than grey as shown in SE website,and the PC suite pack even has chinese on it.I am not sure is that a FAKE one or not?Does anyone got the phone like this?
looking forward to anyone's kind reply,Thanks!
The W810i will record video in either 3GP or MP4 depending on what you choose. If you choose high quality it uses MP4 but if you say it is for MMS it choses 3GP.
The phone is gread! I recommend it to all of you. It's perfect display,desighn and etc. =)
Wow, this W810i records video in MP4 format.. Im highly impressed. The specs say its 3GP but when i upload it to my computer is shows as MP4 format... :)
sorry to vince....
anyways i was really convinced to buy this phone until i saw pictures of the new sidekick 3!
i have fallen in in lov wiht it, altho its nothing compared to european phones, in the u.s. its like a bar of gold...
anyway i just wanna ask for your opinion on witch phone ....
o ya. viperkid. shut up
None of the earlier SE phones had as much bugs as this W 810i. Dont know what happened.
now u know what kind of products Sony Ericsson has! they release W810 without proper testing, caution and did NOT fix d problems b4 it reaches d shelves, wow, is dat wat u call quality???????? if i were u i'd rather return it and exchange it for 3250 or any other more reliable model! for me, SE is always NOT a reliable phone (i had K750i b4 but eventually i gave it to my niece bcoz i can't stand it!) yeah SE has great camera, mp3 player but when it comes to what a CELLPHONE is really USED for it just DISAPPOINTS bcoz cellphones are really made for COMMUNICATION! that also explains y SE is behind the mobile market share versus motorola and samsung and that's a FACT! even SE makes a 5mpx CCD sensor walkman and cybershot labeled phone but if it has stupid BUGS and its NOT easy to USE with low signal, weak earpiece, screen becoming white, all black screenSaver, nonSTop flashing and d list goes on its FUTILE, SE will just keep on loosing market share!
To nick (VIDEO REVIEW)...
That's not an actual video recording done with the phone but a real FLASH video!!! Where did u see the actual video on youtube.com???? Which one? Which one?A nyone knows?
sofar i loved this phone , got it about a week now and all i can say is.... perfect
only 1 problem with the bluetooth, it makes my phone freeze , but that can also be because my pc's bleutooth doesnt work rly good.
Again to HARDMAN -
[quote]-Have you tried the software update feature of the phone to see if tyou have an old version of the software?
-the light problem is what SE set so you dont drain the battery. Under 3.5 bars of battery it will start flashing. With Vodafone you can get new firmware updates to fix this problem but i dont know when they will be released.
-I believe the reason they did this is because it is a power saving feature. You can view the screen with the clock etc. that you are talking about by pressing the orange walkman button while the phone is on standby after about a minute.[/quote]
Almost 100% is sure that it have new firmware for the older versions who fixes the problems! From the "problem" with black screen you make a big problem! When you saw for last time SE to turns off itself just like that.. ?! Even with the oldest firmware in any SE phone won't happen that!! If you want clock,then push one button and ready! It's not so hard..!! For the flash problem,missed calls and master volume it should have new update for this !
65 page in your manuel:
Choose one of the following methods to update your phone:
[*]over the air via your phone or
[*]online via the provided USB cable and an internet-connected computer
Clear and understandable!!
whatz the difference between walkman phone and normal other phones with mp3 players to which headphones may be connected ?
HARDMAN where did you see MUCM in my post ? :D I'm jocking.. ;)
Afcorse SE will fix the problems! They cary about their buyers,very good in fact compared to other brands. You should have patience,SE won't ever let their phone with such problems,this is not Siemens with 2345 firmwares and still problems,so don't worry and don't be so angry,it's not healthy. Ask in your nearest SE service or market for these problems,or email as i said. Every problem have it's fix. Always!
To: MUBU - Thanks for the tips! Not practical to have to do that, but now I know.
To: MUCM: Since you don't have the phone you can't instruct me to turn off the power saving because there is no power saving option. Besides, thanks for making me feel better that SonyEricsson will fix the LIGHT problem and the DROPPED CALLS problem.
Also to Hardman,
One of the niggles I have found is that everytime the phone is turned off and then back on again the master volume goes back to half level. Since the ringtone and message alert, as well as having the additional volume on the ringtone, both utilise the master volume. All you can do is each time you turn the phone back on is to play a tune and turn the volume back to maximum each time. Unless anyone knows an easier way.
to HARDMAN - A few post ago,some one written that when you send email,or contact anyway to SE and explain what is the problems,they helps you. Soon will be new firmware,and I',m 100% sure that missed calls and the light problem will be fixed. It's strange that in the menu don't have settings for power saving mode,in k700's for example did that settings,and afcorse if you don't want your phone to be with totaly black screen while in stand by you just turns off the saving mode in the menu. It should have this in w810 also,the light sensor afcorse won't be disabled when turn off saving mode in the menu,it should be there that settings.. Otherwise to be added in the coming soon new firmware. Maybe more opinions from owners about that? Regards!:)
I like this phone very much but:
1) When I turn on the flash light to take a picture, the light starts blinking hindering me from taking a picture. When I turn on the flash light to see in the dark, the light blinks again! This is so totally wrong and irritating!!
2) I think that the message alert should have come with a volume adjustment option. Somehow, I'm not hearing the incoming sms unless the phone is under my chin.
3) After 20 seconds in standby, the phone goes totally black, I look at it and I don't know if it's on or off! They could've at least made it gray if they want to save energy but totally black is too much! Or a totally black screen with a digital clock. A majority of people nowadays look at their phones in standby to see the time, but this is unfortunately not possible in w810i. Besides, if I have a missed call or an sms I would really like to see that on the standby screen just like in other phones: Nokia, Samsung etc...
4) I've had the phone for less than a week, but I heard that some w810i owners are losing calls because the phone has a software problem in receiving incoming calls. I think if this is true, then this is a catastrophy. A 500 euro phone that has such a problem is an outrage! Walkman and smart design I appreciate it all, but the phone has got to be 110% reliable. If some customers don't reach me on this phone, then I'm losing much more money than the €500 I paid for this Sony Ericsson.
"The phone has the same radio quality as the K750i, which is rather high. HPM-70 stereo headset is included into the kit, but in contrast to previous versions the earphones imply no rubber insertion for wearing on the neck. They are simpler and feature only thin wires. They both look plainer and transmit sound worse (subjectively the quality is lower)." -> mobile-review.com
To owners - Is this true ? If there is a difference what's it?
