it really depends what you're into.
the w900i is more of a smartphone of sorts. read the review.
so if you don;t see yourself utilizing the phones function then obviously its not worth while getting it just because its the latest and best.
the w850 is ideally a walkman cum mp3 player phone while the w900 is more business oriented. kinda like a pda. so in closing if you're intending to use it more for music listening then get the w850. if you;re using it for more than just music listening i.e. assist you in day-to-day jobs etc then get the w900 or similar
now to my question. what does registering the phone to sony ericsson do? i remembered reading somewhere in this forum that it might not be such a good idea. can somebody enlighten this for me?
thanx AGC for ur info...it really helps...at 1st i was thinkin to get W900i but after i read wat u hav post....i hav 2nd tots bout W900i....hmm....i dono....mayb u can give some more advice bout W900i n W850i...really appreciate it...thanx in advance.....
sorry i m not answering abut the ur first question, n70 is more cheaper than se w850.At my point of view i more preffered w850 becauze of it sounded well than n70.I m a great fond of music.as well as i owned n91 also,which is a greatest music phone forever. Make ur right choice body. have a nice time.
Hey AGC i agree with you but i juz wanna be sure of One thing please , the video clips 3gp QVGA does it works fine without any laggin ? i mean like big ones ? 20 MB or so ?? even a full movie ? how is it ? im havin the Samsung D900 and i can run a whole movie 300MB+ without any prob and it has a Gr8 screen for that u know , but i have one problem with it which is the size its too wide for me and i prefer the shape and thickness of the w850 like ma old D600 i guess it fits ma hands betta and quite balancin Beside the Speaker is better than the D900 also , anyway juz tell me to be sure before i go for it please , thanks !:D
I go through phones too quickly, usually switching every 2 weeks or so, which is a very expensive habit. I have been addicted to Sony Ericssons walkman line of phones for over a year now and have owned every single one except the w950. I am also proud to say that I have not purchased a phone in the last 3 months, because the last phone I bought was the w850. This IS the best phone I've ever had, without a doubt. As for the skeptics and questions >>> The sliding mechanism is SOLID, and wears down very very little if at all. I have owned 6 samsung slidersas well and I honestly believe the w850's is better. As for the lack of autofocus and macro...yeah it sucks, especially after the glory days of the k750/w800/w810/w900 cameras...man those were nice. But the camera IS still 2 megapixel and takes wonderful pictures, better than nokia's 6270/6280. Some have asked about differences between w800/810 and the w850. The w850's software is quite updated and works very very well. The screen resolution has been increased and it shows. It can REALLY REALLY multitask well without lagging, even with a big memory card in. It has A2DP (stereo bluetooth profile) for listening to your music wirelessly. But possibly the best thing about the phone is its battery life!!! I use it for about 30-40 minutes of calls a day, 30 minutes of music, some internet and many many texts, and I put it on flight mode when I go to sleep at night. I get 5-6 days of battery life this way! Its AMAZING!!! Also one last difference from w800/810 >>> The w850's flight mode is NOT the same as the old walkman mode. With the old walkman mode, you could ONLY listen to music, which is ok. But with the w850's flight mode you can literally use every function of the phone, including the camera, while still saving battery life! Anyway, sorry this is so long, but I love the phone and I really do recommend it to anyone, ESPECIALLY NOKIA FANS. Just give it a try...you wont go back.
does this fone support avi video playback ??
what r the formats supported by the video player ???
thnx in advance
to you sopha sam:
where's your brain? you are looking on sony ericsson's phones and not nokia alright? Do you expect this to be nokia in a sony ericsson page?
and to you joey:
if you are looking for autofocus and macromode, you might as well just buy digital camera and not the cellphone with a camera on it. better yet, invent your own cellphone that has all the features you want.can you do that??????????????
Thank you very much mr./ms. mangesh for kindly answering my question...more power and god bless to you...but my first question still was not answered, which among the nokia N70 and S.E. W850 is cheaper??...
Can someone pls tell me what is the maximum no of text messages this cell can store???
If u know the ans pls mail me ur reply on firstname.lastname@example.org
nokia n70 is a smartphone instead of that w850 is a music based phone so its focused on music capability more than n70. N70 have a lot of features like edge,wifi,gud camera as well gud mp3 player but not like w850. If u wanna good music phone then this phone for u,if u wanna all rounder phone then think about n70.
to transfer your itunes music, open your itunes and drag the music to your phone's music folder...
Try this trick!! It'll make the W850i light effect lasting even the keypad is locked!!
1. Play a song.
2. Push ur slider up then down to enable the auto-keypad lock.
3. The handphone light will begin to off
4. Press the "c" button for about 5 secs just after the light is off and before the "sleep mode clock" appear
5. yeah...the light effect while playing song will long lasting!
