It looks like a good phone, with many nice functions. The Walkman 2.0 is a great improvement from the now “old” W800, but still there are some drawbacks, especially with the camera. I suspect people want a "W" with a camera like K800 and the functions of W850. In addition, the slider design my not be the best choice.
The prices of "W"s usually do not fall by much (except in the first 2 months). Not to mention that the quality/price ratio is still very good as with most SE phones, although lately, Nokia has been working on improving quality/price ratio too.
My advice... before buying a phone do some research, try different phones from different manufacturers, sometimes the phone with the latest technology may not be the best suited for you. (Try to “make the best rational choice”).
Very Very Good & Buityfull i like have a W850 But I Have not mony for this mobile,help me Sony Or Ericsson Company !!!
Hi! I'm in Australia, and I'm still deciding between this phone and the W950i. I like the fact this one is expandable and has a camera, but like the appearance of the W950i with the 4GB flash memory. Does anyone have any opinion to help me with this choice?
i work for a phone retailer and this phone is a nice slider, but the features of it is just like the w800i and the w810i, sony have unfortunaly havent done very must with the software in the walkman phones...if you like this phone i would suggest looking at the sony ericsson k800i as it is a nice looking phone and have a 3.2 mega pixel camera and now comes in a nice gun metal silver for the new james bond film *nov 17th* the k800i has a mp3 player but isnt walkman branded.....
need any help email me on email@example.com
I forgot to mention.You can download free ringtones from the Sony Ericsson wap site and pics etc.
I sent you e.mail about this phone.
heya im really stuck, im not sure if i should buy this phone. i want 1 with a very good camera, good performance and have a FM radio aslo loads of storage space. Is the W850 a good choice? please help because i don't want to waste my money. please email me. oh and how much is it????
You can find your ringtones by going to MENU. SETTINGS. SOUNDS & ALERTS. Then scroll down to RINGTONE, select Ringtones, and you should have a few to choose from. Of course, you can always put your own on from your CD collection!!!!
This is my 1st Sony Ericsson mobile so I'm afraid I can't compare it with other SE's. As far as I'm concerned, the music, sound quality is absolutely brilliant and I find the headset very good. I've put my settings onto Mega Bass and it's very good to me. Have you tried different ear phones to see whether yours are faulty? Good luck.
i have been using W850 for two weeks i found the sound quality is great but for camera is sucks. In korea, SEK800 3.2 mp already lost to a big time whereas W850 omly 2.0 mp is a real goner
hi to all,
can someone please help me ........
i have just got this phone as an upgrade.have not had the chance to really experiment with it .but i have only one ring tone on it ,,,which is "cosmic"
are there not more standard tones on the phone .if YES then where can i find them on the phone ...or can anyone tell me a site where i can d'load more standard (free)traditional ringtones from .
thanks in advance.
I think W850 would be uncomfortable to you ,I used my friend's S700 for some time which had the same design as this ,and it was uncomfortable .I suggest considering W810(EDGE,2 m.p cam) or W950i(4GB memory, no camera)
Sony Ericsson W850i. It's ACE! i got it like 4weeks ago, and its da best phone eva, really good sound, great features, video ringtones everything! yea it may not have a great camera compare to phones like the k800i is it?:S cant remmber(cybershot phone) but if u look into detail like that, the k800i is crap compared to fones in South Korea cuz they have fones that go upto 8mega pixel!!!!!!! i mean da k800i is onli 3.2! new3ay just sayin agen, the w850i is ace!
picture and video quality of this phone is very bad, very old technology, just like z800i, may be a bit worst
hey can someone tell me how the sound of this phone is cuz i might buy it soon
firstname.lastname@example.org - email me plz
I'm considering purchasing this phone in the very immediate future. I like Sony, ever since I got my current phone. Had a Nokia before that. I'm not comfortable with sliders or flips, but I'm willing to try. Any opinions?
thanx so much for the help deb.have you also noticed dat the sound quality rom the w850 head phones is very low compared to the 800,810,550,900 etc.am sure its not about my ears.why should the sound b poor on this good phone?
