hey people. i really love this hp. all the specs and stuff. really attracted my attention. I am really interested to buy but the prb i am having is the colour. haha i know this sound silly but i am thinking of getting white. usually i know most ppl will take black, but any opinions on the white one? does it look nice too? is the back light clear on white set? which would be a better choice?

The screen will be sometimes bright sometimes dark.
YA! I second this. If you notice, the brightness of the screen changes sometimes. Wierd enough =/
I owned this phone for a week now, this is what I think of it:
-great Walkman 2.0 interface (nice black color, album art)
-nice fade when you pause/play when music playback
-large sharp display, can play video at 320x240 at 30fps on some video (convert to .mp4 format to get the best quality)
-very loud and great onboard speaker (so loud, you can hear it behind closed doors)
-I don't find difficulties using the navigation(use your nail, and work best with the slider is open)
-fast UI, fast CPU (227MHz) being able to play 3D games smoothly (V-Rally3D)
-1GB memory, I still not fill it up yet
-don't need to open slider to use it, unless you want to type something (useful when you just want to open walkman or watching video)
-no play/pause keys like W700i(I cant play/pause when the keypad is lock big letdown)
-careful with the slider, it can easily spoilt (see saw effects, and use hard casing with caution)
-keypad a little hard to get used to (slow typing text)
-everytime I want to transfer files from PC to phone, it needs to change into file transfer mode (that means NO phone feature during this period!)
-camera quality is even worst than w700i, reason: the smaller focal length, 3.86mm on W850 vs 4.3mm on W700 (for best picture, play with brightness)
-The stereo widening and Megabass don't work with onboard speaker (with headset it have a little effects)
Does the phone hve a slide sound? and can i cancel the activitites by just sliding the phone down without pressing the exit button
It is a good phone but still have a few problems.
1st - The sound is too soft
2nd - i always accidently pressed the walkman button when i wanted to press the up button
3rd - 3G is only 0.3 megapixels
4th - the up,down,left,right button is a bit hard
Although this phone is good but there is other phone much more better and at the same price
To Kenji Yang:
Yup.. My phone has this problem too. There's this feeling like the screen part of the phone gonna come or drop off. I guess this is the only flaw I see in this phone. =/
why would care for that feature? 40hrs switched off listening to music?
you dont need a fone, you need a mp3 player dude.
I have been downloading ringtones/themes for the w810i & they work perfectly with the w850i
If your phone will be switched off for 40 hours to listen to music why have a mobile phone?? no-one can contact you?
May as well get an mp3 player!
Hi People i am deciding wether to buy the W810 or the W850 becaus the w 810 can be used only as a walkman an teh batt can go on for 40 hrs and i listen to music very extensively,so if the W850 can also be swiched off and be used a walkman only let me know THNX
go to this site and find ringtones, themes, wallpapers, screensavers here....ENJOY!
I just got the w850i. I just have a question to ask. It will be great if anyone can help me...
1) I tried to find ringtones to download onto the w850i phone on gsmarena.com. So far I have no luck. One of my family member told me w850i is the same thing as w830/830i. If that's so, can I substitute the ringtone that I find for w830i and use it for my w850i phone or it doesn't work that way?
I know my question is kinda long but I really HOPE that someone will help me. Thanks
yes it has the stereo bluetooth (ver. 2).
Sounds like a very good phone.
Hello SE users I wanna Know How IS The Stereo Widening Sound With Mega Bass on? Plz Tell Me Quick Thanx......
If you want a small beautiful versatile phone but does not hang often, go for this W850i.
If you want a very good camera phone, go for K800i.
N73 also not bad either but the camera is not bright for dark place and need to be patience when using the phone...
