Ok im going to give my honest opinion about this phone after 5 weeks of using it, although its not going to be popular with the people who rave about this phone, its MY OPINION, everyone has the right to have their own opinion.
I have written a few reviews now on here saying that i think this is a great phone and better than the k800, however, i have changed my mind for a few reasons. Firstly, the issue of the automatic keypad lock coming on when you close the phone. Yes, the keypad locks itself if you shut the phone whilst on the standby screen (the screen dispalying your wallpaper and network (the homescreen)) and does stay locked when the sleep mode clock comes on. However, if you had the phone open long enough for the sleep mode clock to come on, and you then close the phone whilst sleep mode clock is displayed, although the phone will initially show that the keypad is locked, when the phone goes back into sleepmode clock, the keypad is UNLOCKED despite it previously telling you its locked. The times ive been caught out by this and therefore accidently phoning people whilst in my pocket, its just something thats really irritating. Secondly, the phones keypad is quite slow to respond whilst writing a text, sometimes you press a number a certain amount of times to get a letter but the phone hasnt responded to one of those key presses. This wouldnt be great for fast texters. Finally, the camera. Yes, i accept that this is a music phone (and actually, it plays music fantastically well, its brilliant.) Although its equipped with a 2mp camera, i have taken better pics with phones with a 1.3mp or even VGA cameras. And it does have an led for taking pictures at night, well thats a joke, even when you have the light on and the camera in night mode, the pics taken are just unrecogniseable. During the day, 2mp pics are ok, but as ive said ive taken better pics on lower resolution cameras. Some people may argue that this is a music phone and the camera is irrelevant. However, my opinion is that, ive paid more to have a better camera, but im getting as much use out of my w850 as i have my w300 i had a year ago, which only had a vga camera and no flash, but im getting the same quality pics and near enough same quality sound from music. So i feel that i have lost out by buying this phone and wish i never got rid of my k800 (im not in any way comparing the k800 camera to the w850 camera, ive compared this phones camera with lower resolution cameras.)
Having said all this though, if you want a good music phone and dont care about the camera atall, this is definatley the phone to go for as music quality is outstanding, and also it is fairly easy to use apart from texting. Cheaper SE walkman phones look exactly as they are, cheap and nasty (the w300 doesnt but as thats not available now, the w850 is a great alternative). Just a shame that it doesnt suit me.
I have 2 say having nothing but nokias from n70 7373 6300 6280 an using friends samsung phones the camera on this phone is amazing as is the walkman facility i think the slide motions very smooth an its very user friendly an unlike nokia phones iv had it doesnt keep switchin off an restarting itself...1 question wots the clear jelly like buton on top left of phone 4 is it a light sensor pls let me know iv read manual no joy..thanx
snake, it would be easier for you to set separate profiles for each phone line. Look in the general settings menu to edit the profiles. Set one with line 1, and another with line 2, and switch profiles as you need to ;)
Fantastic features. My only issue is the navigation keys are not user friendly - they are so tiny! I often hit the mp3 player shortcut by accident when I'm trying to press the 'up' key. I've also found dust is getting in under the screen, but apparently that's common with 'slide' phones
he hi.....how can i change from line 1 to line2
on my w850i....i have a sim with 2 numbers on it....help me please?????
o i have no problem with this fone! no crack or anything.. ca anyone send me a pic of the d-pad cracked?! i want to see it! plsssssssssss.. thank u! :P
nope, my D-pad don't crack, actually it depends on the quality of your phone,, u know,, even though u have same model, the quality might be diferrent.. But mine don't have any problem like cracking.. I really like the external part of w850, it's so strong,, until now,, i put my phone together with my key and anything that may scratch my phone but my phone don't have any scratch on it.. I dropped it and it still have no scratch at all... But it also depends on how reckless you use your phone there
Do the new models still have the problem with the cracking d-pad?please answer because i want to buy this phone
Gr8 fone. Hve for a few months now no problems. 1st i thought video call cam had prob but l8er realised it ws due to bad lightin conditions.Battery is also gud. 1st few charges are week as battery is still new but after sum tym it bcomes normal.
Just got the phone about 2 weeks ago, and it's a wonderful phone, fast charging and good quality aydio with no distortion, the only drawback is that the camera has no autofocus and u can't get the flash to work when u take pix only, u can either turn the light on or off. COOL PHONE. kunle 9ija
