i have thisphone just want to know does the w900i headphones with the remote control workon this phone as i want to buy one
hope somebody knows thankyou danny
Ok..i've had the phone 2 days, and here are my thoughts.
Overall...love it. Nice design, and works well. I mainly wanted it as an mp3 player and it does that well. It supports playlists, but using the phone menu, it could become a bit tedious. I didn't really like the bundled software so uninstalled it.
Using the usb cable is very slow, i just put the card in a MSD reader and it's 10 times quicker.
I converted some mp4 movies and it works ok, the small screen is not ideal, but so be it. The annoying thing is that you can't pause or resume or fast forward. (as far as I can tell anyway). If you watch a show, you have to watch it from start to finish. if you stop it, then you have to start from the beginning and you can't fast forward...seems stupid to me.
The phone hasn't hung or crashed on me like my 700i used to. Also bluetooth reliability is much improved. I would always lose connection with my 700i and x3 headset, yet with the 810i, i haven't lost a connection yet
As for the picture quality, as someone pointed out already. It's a phone with a camera feature, it's got a crap lens and will never compare to a digital cam so don't expect good shots out of them. A 5year old 1.3mp digicam will blow any "camera phone" out of the water. It's all about the lens and a phone is too small to work as a decent camera. Don't buy this phone because you think 2mp will give you nice shots. It's a nice to have feature and that's it. personally, i never use the feature and would rather have not have a camera but a smaller phone instead.
Only bug i've found so far is the light flashes sometimes instead of staying on solid. And by the way, it's not a "Flash", it's a light, which might help in dark situations.
I've always been a nokia man as the phones were always simple to use and reliable. abou 2yrs ago i took the plunge and bought the 700i. The SE's have nice features and look great, but they are not as robust as the nokias in my opinion. Stickers fall of, charging contacts break, phone hangs, joystick's stop working..etc. I've had all these with my 700i. Never had an issue with a Nokia. The problem with the nokia is that to me, they don't look very nice and always seem to be playing catch up. The philosophies are different if you ask me. Nokia is slow and steady, quality product. SE is leading edge, but with problems.
Lastly, some of you people really need to stop being so lazy and quit asking ridiculously simple questions. Go to the website and the information is all there for you. There's a lot of usefull posts here, but there's as many stupid ones...it just makes it harder and more tedious to find relevant info. If you want to know what memory card it supports or if it has a radio....LOOK IT UP ! I guarantee you you'll get an answer a lot quicker.
hey guys and gals,
plz help me
im planning to buy a phone with gud sound quality, stereo speakers loud enough,at least an mp camera ............
my latest crush is the w810i but some websites say it hasnt got stereo speakers or stereo widening. plz give me the correct information and suggest a gud phone. currently im between sew810,samsungx700,nokia3250. plz help me
Does anyone know what is the max resolution this phone will play in mp3 format..??
And to the moran who said the W810i has only 20 mb of internal memory is a lier. My W810i is registering 34 mb just like the W800i. Get your facts straight b4 posting.
what about the message tone? could mp3 song be assigned as message tone and alarm tone?
thats strange cause we still use band e as the price you see is the price you pay because its just a standard upgrade with no discount
is it possible to add programs to this phone (like it is possible with smartphones)??
I have W800i and my sister has W810i. So I will make comparisons here between the 2 models.
Differences between W800i and W810i
1. Networks: W800i is triband but W810i is quadband
2. Edge: Absent in W800i
3. Lens cover: Absent in W810i
4. Internal memory: 34mb for W800i but 20mb for W810i
5. Phone size: W800i is 100 x 46 x 20.5 mm, slightly thicker than W810's 100 x 46 x 19.5 mm
6. EMS: Absent in W810i
7. Talk time: W800i claims to have longer standby and talk time. I can't really feel the difference when using it. So basically, they have the same battery life.
9. Phone book: 500 entries for W800i and 1000 for W810i
10. The obvious ones: W810i's colour and re-designed keys.
Q: Which one should I get/Which one is better?
A: If both phones COST THE SAME or ALMOST cost THE SAME, get W810i. The joystick in W800i is the major gripe to me. Though W810i lacks a camera lens cover, its lens is slightly recessed, making it much less prone to scratching as most people believe to be. And W810i looks cooler than W800i.
However, W810i costs much more than W800i in my area. (Its price is almost doubled) The extra money is not worth the new functions/designs IMO. Unless you are obsessed with W810i and don't mind spending more for it, W800i is a more worthy choice.
it looks like some pretty good photoshop, if it is real that would be so hott
Hey that's just a photoshopped black W810 bro, lol
Anyways, i've been itching for the GSM Arena W810 review.. anyone's got ideas when we can expect this?
just found the pic of the white SE W810 so i thought of sharing it wid u guys just go to
and scroll to the end of the page.
Thats a bloody good deal m8, congrats :)
anyway am happy with my W800i and BTH that i got from O2 Online Satff Accounts :p
If Band E is FOC then I don't think you can get it any cheaper than that...unless there's extras that I don't know about.
to drew do you how much of a discount a band G gets if you do would you mind letting me know.
i was wondering if any of u guys could help me out with a little prob. i got mine on monday and i just tried putting videos on the phone. i tried puttng and mp4 video and all i got wat the sound. i tried a 3pg video and it keeps saying playback failed. any help would b usefull.
I was trying for three weeks to get this phone. Every shop from essex to Lancashire had sold out. while passing through London today i spotted a shop by the escalators in Euston station, ran over and asked.. They had one left!.. within 30mins i was the proud owner of a shiny w810i and easter gift bt headset. BOTH FREE OF CHARGE!! Not sure if i was supposed to get the handset free, but weyhay. On O2 Leisure Time ALL. Im band C as my bill is usually around £20-£30. so far, very very plased with it. HIghly recommended phone but so hard to get hold of its untrue!
Thanks for the info, looking at what you provided I'd fall in the Band E category. Though mnight be me being completely ditzy but what does FOC mean?
If your contract started in dec 04 then you will be band A/C/E.
if you avg 6 month spend is 0 - 20pm then your band A
if your avg 6 month spend is 21 - 30pm then your a band C
if your avg spend is 31 to 50pm then your a band E
Band A upg price is £159.99
Band C upg price is £49.99 (£99.99 before discount)
Band E upg price is FOC
