Neo, get SE P990i as it has everything you are asking for including 3G.
As for Sony better than Nokia, they are. Excluding all the bickering the facts are indisputable. When you compare the specification, the SE wins over the Nokia. It does not matter which one you like best, the Sony technolgically is better and looks better too. The Nokia is ugly.
Also you say SE are overpriced. No, you get what you pay for. You always pay for quality this is why the SE may cost more, because it's a better phone that the cheap, nasty Nokia.
Yes..I agree the SE is for the young people. So if you live in a retirement home definitely go with the Nokia, it has an old image to match an old person.The SE looks great..and is packed with so many features that seems quite intimidating to these Nokia fans!
Remember guys..everything Sony Ericsson develops becomes a standard feature for other mobile brands in the future. Like Bluetooth first introduced on the Ericsson T20e, and Carl Zeiss optics found on almost all Sony digital cameras.
Wow, what other colours does the SE come in?
SE are the best, hands down.
Just because a given manufacturer has a larger market share, does not make them better. In fact in almost any industry, the larger mass market items are not the best, just the most common, come on guys. Nokia maybe big but they are NOT the best.
I think that if u want a mass market phone, then go for the Nokia.
Sony Ericsson w810 is too classy a phone, and really it will take Nokia a very long time to match Sony Ericsson in the technology department. I mean really, u can can see it for yourself..for example the SE K750 will out do Nokia's N90 with CZ optics, pick up any phone review magazine that has reviewed these 2 phones. That really is something, considering that the K750 is a much older phone than the N90. Sure Nokia is a "reliable" phone..and I've had many a Nokia mobiles from the first 1611's to 6230i's, but oh! how the tables have turned, once colour screens were introduced.Nokia started struggling to keep up with the Asian giants like Sony(powered by Ericsson) and Samsungs. Sorry guys, w810 is my choice, it has the best picture quality, mp3 player(Walkman!!! Can it get any better?!!!). Sadly, Nokia has made another mass produced phone with a design that actually mimics the SE T610(Hint: take note at the top half of the Nokia..does it not look like the Sony Ericsson T610) Go figure.
w810 is just another overpriced brick! 3250 has all characteristics better with less price! SE down. They will continue loosing their marketshare (6.9% only in contrast to nokia's 35%). So people see how poor se phones are!
I've seen 3250 shots and they were better than w810 ones! Colors are so natural on the 3250 shots! All SE fanatics are blind, they do not see how the screen is poor (tiny!), the camera is not so good, soung is worse than 3250 has!
SE is loosing, SE small sales are based on advertisement only. Monkey see big orange "W" on the phone's corp, monkey buy it!
Are you so young that can't understand that it is advertisement only? Ah, yes, SE fans are very young, who else needs an orange childish phone?
i have had a nokia since the time i first got a mobile.
there is no doubt that nokia is durable and long lasting...
but look at the facts now... compare these two phones, the only advantage i see that the nokia has is symbian OS.
if someone says that the sound and picture quality of the nokia is better...then think it over, sony has the technology of cybershot and walkman behind it. cybershot and walkman are the best in their respective areas...now when these things are combined in one device, there is no doubt that it has to be REALLY good.
nokia was good at making phones and still is...nokia will catch full strength signals in the basments and will function perfectly as a PHONE.
if you want a device that functions as a phone, then nokia is it but as a multimedia phone sony wins it
and so this is the first time i will buy a sony
Nokia always attemp to equal SE phones in characteristics, but always lost, an example is N90 Carl Zeiss optics loose to SE K750i in overall picture quality, W810 is the same case, better camera module, better sound (better headphones included), the same screen, better mp3 player and better battery life. Nokia fans don´t understand this facts because they are blind, since the 3310 - 3330 all nokia phones lacks the functionality over the competitors, they based the sales in loyalty fans, but this situation change. The advantage of the 3250 is Symbian S60, but if you want a smartphone you can select a lot af better models of Nokia or Sony Ericsson. For me the winner is W810 because for the same price you have better quality in all characteristics, this phone really compete with Nokia´s S40 phones, and they really loose to the w810.
The W810i is better, the specifications shows the powerful of this phone over the Nokia.
nokia is not only famous because its symbian. its also because they phones are long lasting. i seen nokia phones thrown into the ocean. get dried and still working!!!!!!!!. while SE months being changed around a month being bought. taking in count nokia production and market share (35%) its really impresive!
i been looking for a new phone and wasnt sure wich one to buy now i think im goin for the 3250 because i have always been with nokia and i never had a problem with it.
i think the w810 the design its more for kids with its orange bits now the nokia its a phone for man.
now talking about mp3 player whats the difference from the SE?
when listening to it can i hear any difference? u can still listen to your musics and the camera SE got a better camera? again can you see much difference on the pics?
NOKIA as got the looks and nokia will always be NOKIA with the best phones
now dont go and buy the phone that someone tells u to
buy what you like
For the Nokia fan who wrote about twist-n-turn design being unique to Nokia. It's not. I think LG invented that with the G7100.I think. Nokia was just too slow to come up with anything unique. So they looked to LG for inspiration.
Sony Ericsson has everything that a new mobile should, have great mp3 player. Great camera. Come on guys..do u really think that Nokia can out do Sony in the camera department? I think not!
Besides all the Nokia's look similar, have similar features.
Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones are for the new generation. Nokia definitely lost it, the same could be said for their market share.Besides the SE is the in thing. Best picture quality, mp3 player, plus it looks much more classy. Well done Sony Ericsson. You certainly have done it again.
Nokia 3250 is much better. Its twist-and-turn design is very inspirative and unique. SE is nothing more than a bar phone. A boring design from SE!
And the verdict is: Based on number of positive comments garnered, SE W810i is better than Nockya 3250.
SE has better camera, more memory and
"both phones have 256K colors displays with similar resolutions, 176 x 220 for the W810 and 176 x 208 for the 3250"
So the bigger nokia screen doesn't mean much if you can't fit more into it.
Please! can we have constructive criticism. All this Sony is better than Nokia, or I like Sony so it's better. This is childs play, then again maybe you are just kids.
I think most would prefer facts on functionality not wether you like the colour or not.
Battery life, screen quality, sound quality and picture quality. People can make there own minds up on colour and size or design if they have facts about how well the phone will work.
So get a grip and stop going on about things like kids do!
RANT OVER :)
I personally am beging to think that the latest phones will not fulfill my dream of having an all in one device which will give reasonable pictures, a decent sized music player(battery life kills them) and a functional phone. I think I was asking to much to be honest. I'll now start looking for a phone which will concentrate on a camera only and get myself a decent MP3 player.
I just want it all and it's not quite here yet :).
Wont be long though.
