This phone should've had slight improvements in the interface or something, its not really worth buying this over K750i. The K750 costs less, but gives more or less the same features. TO pay so much more for just EDGE and a 512 MB card (which you can buy), is weird.
I'm not sure, I might just get this one though, my brother has a K750, so I'd like something different. THe Motorola ROKR E2 is a better phone than this, but its camera sucks like hell. I'm so confused!!!
I too have expressed concern at the lack of a camera lens cover on this phone, and it is an obvious oversight given that is a fairly logical addition to any camera phone, so why remove it? However, I may have an answer. I have trawled many forums and in one obscure forum a view came up which make so much sense I thought I would share it here. The fact is that if a camera is to have optical zoom, it is necessary for the lens to move in and out. As such, maybe the W810 is the first trial of a deeply sunk lens to see how it performs in practice, with no lens cover, even though this particular model doesn't have zoom lens...
In regards to scamming, I'd like to raise some questions about hi-mobile.net (their ads are posted throughout this site).
I suppose it's not just hi-mobile, but it seems on ebay, the negative feedback always comes from users who have made very few transactions on ebay... newbies seem to be the ones these companies try to short-change and think they can get away with it because they have a generally good reputation.
Has anyone here purchased anything from hi-mobile? There was one complaint that hi-mobile sent the customer a "c" version of the phone instead of the "i" version which they thought they were getting. Nowhere on their site are they advertising "c" models.
You should also read the so-called user comments that people can post on each phone. I think it's pretty clear who's posting those comments.
I realize that an explanation can always be produced, but it's just something to think about.
Yeah..C`mon Sony release this baby :)
It would be nice if the price remains not far from w800
i've been waiting for the Sony Ericsson 810 for ever now, when will it become available? i cant wait. i am using the 750i and i think its one of the best phones ever, and now i can wait to get the 810, so come on release it...
It was cool.... Stop my obsession of owning W800 at the moment. Will sure grab this phone though its not a 3G phone.. but who cares?
It works really well !! Nice MP3 interface, good sound, awsome camera with a focus that make the difference and good ear-phones. The form factor is similar to the T600/T610, which I liked very much. A full features phone which is promising.
looks the nuts i have w800 at the mo and i love it upgrade due in march just found out it hits the uk 1st of march i will be getting it
Man, w810 is way, way cooler! I was waiting for it to be launched too. But I will decide later whether I want to buy 800 or 810. I have no complain about 810 except that it doesn't have a cover for the camera lens! This could be the deciding factor that I will not buy 810 later! I am so dissapointed to find out that there is such a big draw back...!!!!
which do you all think is cheaper? w800 or w810? It seems w810 looks way cooler.
I'm going to buy w800 today and i'm not sure weather i'll regret for not waiting w810 to launch.
But if w810 is more expensive... maybe i'm out of budget to get w810.
which should i choose??
No cover for the camera... why do they always have to create a no. of drawbacks on an otherwise perfect phone??? zzZZZzzzz
W810 is better than W800, who cares about memory, u get a 512 MB card with it! And yes, Joystick is removed... look at pics :)
maybe you can help me to decide which phone w800 or w810 to buy?is it very bad that w810 has less int memory?but in the official SE site was written that int memory may vary.so?which one is better?
hey, i want just to ask what is the difference between SEW810 AND W800?1huh? only the keypad?and maybe someone knows, what is the exact day when it will be available in uk?from march?or what?
I like w810 design more as compared to k750. Do they have any other differences besides that w810 has EDGE and k750 doesn't? But I can see the voting results of w810 a bit less promising than k750.
Xellar: I heard that the W810 white got cancelled; they'll only have black... But I'm sure you could find a casing for it on e-bay after it comes out.
