i keep reading how people think is this best se phone ever..which i find strange as it's one of the least featured se phones in the range with lots of limitations and issues. thats why i chose to keep my 2 year old w810i and sell my brand new w880.
my view is that if you like the size and design, then fine. But if you want features, then pick just about any other phone in the SE range and you will be much happier. For me it's more important to have things like a light/flash, radio, good loudspeaker..etc than it is to have a slim phone
I understand that to get to that size, you have to drop certain features so if that's your key requirement, then great. But to keep reading that this phone is the best se phone and that it does everything you could ask for is incorrect and misleading to people who are considering purchasing.
- Very thin design
- Brilliant display (great resolution)
- Great memory space (1Gb + phone)
- Easy menu navigation
- Good in-ear headphone (I can use it inside my helmet!)
- Has a very great battery life if you turn off the cell at bed time (considering its cool stuffs)
- 2MP cam without Carl Zeiss signature and no light/flash
- No FM radio
- No Infrared port (i don't know if SE could place it in such thin side)
- Weak espeaker for both use (MP3 and handsfree)
I cannot use its 3G advantages -- like videocall or large bandwith internet -- because there is no 3G network in Brazil (for a while).
For now, I'm a real SE fan! I change this cell only for another SE phone. :)
Hi all Sony Ericsson fans,
I have own this phone for 4 months now - And I realy Love IT. It is very stylish and very smoot. If you love SE-phones - BUY IT!
This is a Walkman-phone, have 2.0 megap. camera (take good pictures in the daylight)! Very thin phone. I just Love IT! ;o)

saw my friend's black 880i's back part (orange) colour start to fade away after 2 mths..not sure if the steel colour have the same effects..guys take note of it..anyway im buying the steel colour soon..
At first I was told by my friends not to buy this phone. According to them it is not woth of its value and price. It is a piece of junk. But I took this risk and bought this phone. It is one of the best phones available in the market today.
Even beibg SLim its battery perfoms excellent. Rest of its features are essential
it is the most stylish phone around and it is so small and compact!!my frens who owns nokia Nseries are so envious whenever plp try to get a hold on my new W880i, compared to N series, W880i is sleek god
dont know how to use track id ive been reading the opinions and someone said u just push the button how do u use it can any1 help pls
No, it doesnt Scratch at all .the Front part of the Phone on the Black version is Soft kind of Cloth material (dont know its name)
and the Silver version of W880i is Special Aluminium :P its well Nice !
Hey.. i was in those phone shops and they had this phone so i tried to text it but thing is, halfway thru, the buttons kept getting all stuck and stiff n it was very hard to press them..
Is this what this phone will be like after multiple uses for a long time? I like its slim factor but if the keypad's gonna get all stiff and stuck everytimei push them, mayb it aint such a good hp after all.. wat do u guys who own it think? Does it really get stuck?
And if u drop it, does it get damaged really fast? DOes it like 'heat' up like the slim samsung bar hp, after many phone calls?
what about the fm radio ? it doesn't have one ! (yet it's called a walkman phone...hmmm.)
I have used 12 best mobiles , first 3230, n70, w800, 3250, n80, 5500, n73, moto rokr, n95,w880, mot0 780 and many more but the worst phone i found was w880 as compared to its price. if u will see its dummy u will come to know. i will tell u what its price shoud be, its prece shoud be, 8000 RS indians and that is enough for it but now in india i think its price is double that of i have mentioned and at the time i brought it it was more than triple of the above..
have this fella a little while now; appears to be software issues as its run up 800 euro on data calls on my last bill which I didn't make; my network says its happened to others in that it goes on the web unbeknownst to user and browses away; very sleek and stylish though and if this problem is erradicated well and good; great phone
heres some advice.. buy the earphones for a W850i. It will make it worth you while.The earphones that come with are way too soft, no real listening pleasure..
