Dear Hamid,i m a music lover and that's why i like w850.it realy sounds much better then 5700. 5700 has very poor bass.850 looks great.5700 has got very ugly looks.i know nokia gives many things but sound quality is very poor.850 has every thing, good looks,good
Display,good video playback,
Good music playback.it has got every thing which i need.two things i don't like in 5700 are poor sound quality and cheep looks.
To fresh you can set mp3 tones just go into settings and then sounds and alerts then ringtone. You can't do this if you downloaded the track but if you loaded it from disc to phone you've got no problems.
you're right dear , but let ME tell ya something.this forum is for helping people choose the best thing,ain't it? i've had both w850 and 5700,and guess what in my country 5700 is like 260 $ while w850 cost nearly 370 $ !!!! so in my opinion whith cheaper money you can buy a better deal ! the choice is up to people ! if they value battery and good quality with the headphones w850 is the KING ! no rival ! but if they want to buy something smart,dual speakers ! loud sound,16 m colors,beautiful and capable of producing good sound through the earphones , 5700 is really better ! if i went back to choose between them again, no dought i would have bought 5700 again, even though w850 is not a bad phone .
and some thing else , have ya noticed how talented w850's screen is in getting dirty and absorbing sweat of the hands and dust around ? pitty !
thanks for sharing your opinion .
LET ME TELL YOU ONE THING;
This phone is only comparable to Samsung's U600/U700, Motorola's RAZR V6Maxx or Z6 ROKR, OR Nokia's 5300/5200 because of their timeline. If you want to bring up Nokia's 5700, then go compare it to SE W910, kthxbai

and dear ricky and others
here are some other copmarison between w850 and 5700
nokia 5700 is a smart phone based on symbian 9.2 3thrd edition which also means that you can install many different progerams on it,a big loads of applications , including a great answering machine and lots of others! w850 is a non-smart java application phone which is pretty fast,but ofcourse limited !in nokia 5700 there are some dedicated keys for the music to fully control it ( not just to load the music player like the ugly button on w850 ) , but there isn't any such button on 850 !internal memory ? it is just 16 mg in w850,so na'ive ! in 5700 it is two times bigger,32 mg! in 5700 you can have access to office document ( word,excel ,pdf things and ....) easily thanks to the operating system and the big screen ,can you do it on w850?the keys on 5700 are so big and comfy to use,really easy i mean,but try sending a sms with w850 ( if you are a man big big thumbs !!!! ) that's way too hard,not talking about the loose buttons that make bad sound when pressed! the lock key on w850 doesn't work properly , cuse to unlock it you just have to press the lest key,then the right one ! very bad cause you can do it accidentlay in your pocket!the screen of w850 , when you open the slide sometimes fades or shows some unwanted lines !!! you don't find these problems in 5700 ! i mean hello oooo! this is the first slider by sony ericsson , so you can't ecxept more out of it
man i agree with you that its sound quality is really good ( but only thriugh the head phones ! ) . the loud speakers of this phone made me disappointed,very quiet and not loud.i mean if you go out with your friens and want to show what your great walkman is capable of .... that's really embarressing because its sound through the speakers isn't loud at all!
but 5700 has two speakers ( it's not mono )and sounds really loud and very high class.
the screen of 5700 doesn't leave a chance for the one on w850.it has 16 million colors not just 256 k,and it's way bigger and brighter.the icons with new themes could be changed and that's wonderful,but through hundreds of themes that i searched through the net not a lot of them could do it.so the menu and icons are really boring in se w850.picture quality?both are 2 mega pixel without auto focus,but if you shoot a movie with 5700 you will worship it.qvga and very fast,so good you could burn it into a cd with nero and watch it with your t.v ! the movie made by w850 ???? give me a break !!! lol,that's funny ! the port for the headphones on 5700 is 3.5 mm,basiclly means you could use any kind of headphones you like without an adaptor,for w850 you could do it too,but one hassle! you can't use it directly , you have to connet your favorite headphones to the adaptor on the phone and making it very long and funny !w850 makes cracky sounds when pressed in the open slide , 5700 is very firm and makes no nasty sound.so ricky,my friend let me tell you that i am not a fan of nokia myself,i have had some very good se phones too and my best phone ever is SONY ERICSSON W800 ,i really loved it.battery life in w850 is way better than 5700 and it is a good replacement for your ipod ( but again just through the headphones ) which is funny cause you need the loud speakers too, huh?in that case if the loud speaker is not important for you buy a se w950 ,it is smart,4 giga bytes of memory,really stylish and touch screen,surly it doesn't have a camera but don't worry because you will never want to use the retarded camera on your w850.so in my opinion better choices are :
1 : se w800 or k 750
2 : nokia 5700 xpress music
3: se w950 ( no camera ! )
Better then 5700.go for it.those who say 5700 is better r just .... .navigation is very easy to use.
You will need a third party software for adding album art to a mp3 file.go for media monkey for adding album art.
Could anyone tell me how you get the album art on the phone, i have ripped some of my cd albums to the phone using the disc to phone software and would like to know how to get the album art on along with them.???
