Dani, 22 Jul 2008Yeah but my question is
why do Nokia put Audio Chips in their phones?
Sony Ericsson's do... moreits not top notch dani.
a phone has a sound chip in it or it doesnt
ones with them sound better than the ones that dont.
walkman doesnt have them, xpressmusic does.
it is a simple concept. it isnt a case of SE's good anyway. no, its not good enough in comparison.
sony ericsson dont use 'special' hardware which makes the music sound better
My PC Suite was working all fine till now.
connecting automatically to the phone when spotted (via bluetooth).
lately it stopped connecting to it.
any reasons why?
the PCphone BT connection is ok as i can push and get files from the phone via BT.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2008Which is the best color for w890i? Any idea?Mocha Brown or Sparkling Silver(as shown in the picture)
Do you have to use the head-phones to operate the FM radio. If you do, can a bluetooth stereo head-phones do the job.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2008if u want ur battery to last long, turn off the 3G. Mine lasts for 4-5daysYes, shutting off 3G would help conserve battery life but adding the higher capacity BST-40 battery would also extend the usage time of the phone as well =:)
The extended battery would really help if you need to use 3G especially if 3G provides better reception in your area, if available.
Dani, 21 Jul 2008No you dont understand...
the zoom is only available in VGA Resolution, but its a 3MP !
... more3.5G would be nice but only if it's available in your area.
If you're living in the States, forget it!
Att/Cingular is the only one that has it BUT it's available ONLY in certain parts of the country!
a 3.5mm port would be better since it's a Walkman phone but I understand the need for the adapter so people can use that to answer calls then go back to the music.
Why not include the 3.5mm port and include a MIC adapter for calls?? That'll fix the issue!
Erwin, 18 Jul 2008Has anyone else tried this to see if the increase battery capacity works well with the phone?
Yes, the W890i accepts BST-40 battery used in the P1i.
The higher capacity battery does give the phone a longer life.
It does bulge very slightly near the M2 port but, really, it's not noticeable especially if the phone is in a case!
nick, 22 Jul 2008okay but dani the nokia series come with headsets too, so you can just plug them in there. it ... moreYeah but my question is
why do Nokia put Audio Chips in their phones?
Sony Ericsson's dont need it, their sound quality is already Top Notch!
okay but dani the nokia series come with headsets too, so you can just plug them in there. it isnt as if you cannot use a headset with a nokia.
and yes dani i have used a walkman and they're not that great. almost every review about walkmans says that.
they just aren't that great. why cant SE put a proper sound chip in it? oh wait that would cost them money.
stupid music phone.
nick, 22 Jul 2008thats dumb. "sony dont need sound chips because they already sound good".
thats a load of r... moreSONY dont need no 'super dooper sound chip'
becuase SONY already have GOOD SOUND QUALITY!
have you ever heard a Sony Ericsson?
the sound quality is sooo crisp and natural and clean, it sounds like the song is live
as for 3.5mm jack, id rather have it on a headset adaptor so when im listening to music and i recieve a call i can simply press a button and answer the call use it as a mic so if i get a phone call, i can simple press a button and speak through it!
if the phone had 3.5mm jack built in, wouldnt i be faffing around pulling out the earphones connected with the 3.5mm jack and then speaking lol
that would be soo embarrasing!
Dani, 22 Jul 2008the 5310 is sopposed to be full of features, yet it doesnt have 3.5G! W890i has it..and comes ... morethats dumb. "sony dont need sound chips because they already sound good".
thats a load of rubbish. it has a sound chip in it or it doesnt dani! the ones with them sound better than the ones which dont. is it that hard to comprehend.
and dani if you bought an ipod which didnt have a 3.5mm jack you wouldnt be happy, so why should you accept it with a music phone!
oh and SE in box headphones are hardly better than seinhessier ones(or however you spell it). they are produced in mass bulk and SE wouldnt exactly bother making them great. its not like SE ever bother stepping the extra mile. look how featureless their phones are
nick, 22 Jul 2008clearly on a music phone, a 3.5mm jack is more useful lol!
yeah the 5700 is actually lackin... morethe 5310 is sopposed to be full of features, yet it doesnt have 3.5G! W890i has it..and comes with Good earphones
Walkman earphones are just as good as Sennheiser CX300 earphones, they both look the same and are the same in terms of quality..
so why pay that extra £30 on Sennheiser, when a Walkman phones comes with the same type!
anyway W890i is worth its price considering it has HSCDA 3.5G and better earphones in the retail package and Stainless steel Body..since its a Sony the sound quality is as good as a iPod
Samsung supply the Audio Chips to iPods anyway..
Sony dont need it, since theyv have always been known for great Sound Quality!
clearly on a music phone, a 3.5mm jack is more useful lol!
yeah the 5700 is actually lacking in features. thats a first for nokia but it is showing its age a bit.
both are music phones. music features should come first, but no, the SE walkman lacks the basics. 3MP cam and HSDPA without a 3.5mm jack or any kind of audio acceleration??
