just bought this phone and am very pleased with my first eriksson.
muct agree with last comment tho, disappointed with mainly
however display and themes are awesome, standard earphones coming with device are unbelievable and the look and feel of this phone make it a great buy. i use my phone for calls, odd camera shot and walkman and this is definetely a great buy for anyone who is after that. :) cant wait to use TRackID!!!!
well, i got the w880i as an upgrade from a w800i... i must say it's a sexy looking phone. i got some cheap clear plastic case for it off ebay for $1 to keep it in good condition. anyhow, the phone's software is an improvement over the w800i. the obvious differences are:
no radio (not that i care, stations suck here anyhow)
no zoom in most cam modes
although the flash isn't necessary, it makes some night photography a little tough... ya gotta be in the right light or else your pics will suck. you can still adjust the light balance anyhow, no complaints. the inability to zoom in most shot modes is kinda annoying.
it would be nice to see the phone multitask a little better - playing mp3's and running a java game kinda freezes the phone sometimes and even makes the song skip or stop for a few seconds. that sucks! but i'm sure it's like that with other models too, unless you have a smartphone.
what i thought was cool about the themes was the ability to have flash menus (only on generic unbranded fw) like with citybeat theme. i look forward to making a few skins over the next little while to make my w880i even more sexy.
it would be cool to see in walkman 2.5 or 3.0 a feature that allows you to cut a ringtone from an mp3/aac/mp4 by selecting the start time and end time of the ringtone within the selected song, rather than having to do it manually with your pc.
Can someone please tell me where I can find the Mac Suite for my W880. I use a MacBook Pro and I've looked all over and can't find a thing.
i have this phone the only problem in it is the sound quality it is very VERY bad i was disappointed.I had P910 thats the best sound quality i ever heard. Im looking forward to buy the P1 hopefully the sound quality is perfect
Yes, it does support 2GB. I am using it and running just fine.
proud user of
Smart,Slim and Sexy.Best phone on the market.Music on the Move.Thats what I can say and when you need more info buy one and you will enjoy it.mbika
can you sync this phone with a mac? i presume itunes music files (mp3)work with the media player.
i used ericsson for a long time. it is good, i hate nokia due to fastest depreciation of value.aaah its sucks! for me ericsoon is the best i want to have p990 but its too expenssive.hehehe...
i've said it before and i'll say it again
the only reason you would buy this phone is because of its looks.
In every other aspect it's inferior to other "similar" phones, be it SE, nokia..etc.
Don't ask me why, just read a few pages of history, i've detailed why i don't like it.
its such a shame cos i really like the phone so i went out and got one but then i was really really disappointed with the quality of the speaker...it was nothing compared to my old k750 and my smasung u600
such a let down for a walkman phone
hi am thinking of getting this fone, does anyone no if you can use a 2g card in it or does it freeze, cheers
im getting this fone 2day on contract do u think i should cancel and get a different fone or wat?
This phone is overrated tripe. I'd much rather have the cheaper W610i. Though 3G capabilites would be a nice commodity, I don't really need it, the 610i also has a better camera due to the flash and autofocus that the 880i is lacking. I'd reccomend S/E putting higher spec cameras in there higher spec phones.
back ...the phone i have is se w880i with 2Gb memory card .... the battery work 5 up to 7 days charge about how much is used the phone ....
is the best phone ...nokia sucks.... motorola sucks ......this new model is the best from se they have until now ...
I hade the K700 before, in fact still have it. I twas my first experience of sony ericsson, and i must say it was love at first byte haha. I have had motorolla, samsung, nokia and lg phones before and i have to say i was fairly impressed with the phone in terms of gaming, internet, email, blue tooth, modem, infrared and all other tools and applications and over usage of the phone. Last week i upgraded to the W880I, and must say first off, learning curve from previous phone wasnt to hard, slim look excellent, keys small but stand out easy to use, 3G now available-network dependent, blue tooth works fairly well, usb cable now def. a plus and easier and faster to use, also memory card better, explorer interface to folders much better and more detail, had to download previously developer tools for more access to phones files over all i think a good phone.
I have only three dissapointments:
No radio, although was told it had one, and honestly for a multimedia phone one almost expects it standard, but there you go, now radio.
No infrared, used it alot on prev phone, dont have to carry a bluetooth dongle arround... especially for laptop.
and music sounds bad and tinny on loudspeaker, BUT to be fair, the headphones supplied is excellent, and sound quality is fab!! which basically it is a walkman, so headphones would be worn anyways...
so there my ten cents worth, haha i like it!
Im getting this phone tomorrow.!!! :D
how does the trackID work> does it connect to teh net or somthing
i love this phone. its design is tight! so thin and classy with stainless steel cover. theres just 2 things that bother me. the loudspeaker which is not loud enough and the sound volume which is also not loud ebough. i had a Nokia N91 before i purchesed a W880, W880's sound is nothing compared to N91. Sad but true..
Has anyone had any problems with the camera on the w880. today i pressed the silver camera button and all of a sudden my fone went completely blank and then rebooted itself and eva since this keeps happening so i can no longer access my camera everytime i try the phone switches off and thjen back on. just wanted to know if anyone else had the same problem?? the phone was boxed brand new bought from ebay an unwanted upgrade but the box did not contain a warranty certificate.
Thank you sylvia, yes i've discovered the Auto Key Lock. It's in setting-->phone-->security!
Well guys, this is the best and most beautiful mp3 phone you will ever get at the moment! The phone design is so sleek and eye catching! I got the silver colour one! It's very elegant. Metallic stainless steel silver cover with stainless steel keypad. With the white keypad backlight, the phone is damn contrast and sharp especially during night time or at dark area. It's like a diamond radiant. It's so beautiful! With stylish walkman 2.0 software, superb phone design...what else can you ask! It's more than an ipod Nano!
Btw, i also got the SE tiny speakers as free gift. It comes with the phone in the package! haha.
