What matters in the phone business, since I'm in one myself, is what people want. People look at these phone and think different things: neat, organised, stylish looking phone & smart, intelligent one on the other. Now, W810 is very appealing to the eye; with the use of SONY's Walkman symbols & smooth round designs front & cover, where as 3250 may not seem as stylish in some ways. No doubt BOTH are good phones, but if a person requires a minimally better speaker, a smartphone + a general Nokia lover (which I'm afraid I'm not) then 3250 may be better choice. I would go for W810. Afterall, you use handsfree (where SE has a good in-ear ones) and for Mp3 or Camera use, SE is marginally better.
I really confused, I don't know which one is good for me to buy, but I wished it was a mobile of the mixture of the two, because there are some features in one which are not in the second,I really want you to help me which one is better to choose.
I will choose the 3250.
- Better sound
- It's a smartphone
- compatiable with office apps
- Bigger screen
I will not choose the w810. Why?
- Nothing new since w800
- Tiny screen
- Weak loudspeaker
- Very small uncomfortable buttons
Ppl who know about phones will take 3250, ppl who don't know will take w810, then realize that it has nothing interesting at all and will return it in a favour of the 3250.
Now we have 3250 at 320 euro price with 512mb card included. Who would take w810 for about 550 euro?
Ppl are glad to buy 3250, we have no complains about it.
In terms of camera and sound quality (mp3's) SE is always beyond Nokia.Even though both phones are of 2 M.P still effective pixels are higher in SE.
But talking of SE W-810 alone, I dont think it will make it's presence feel only bcoz EDGE in comparision to K-750 and W-800
Actually you are wrong. The new appeal is the new design and the 850Mhz band. I went with Cingular a little while back, and my K750i didn't have the extra band, so service with cingular sucked. I had to buy a razr so my coverage would be as it should. So there u go, I will def buy!
Nub thats so true!!!.
back to the topic: Nokia have a strong backing EMSELF!!! their phones are bought because nokia phones are GOOOD. long lasting. i seen the nokia 5*** WORKING YEP. THOSE OLD PHONES STILL BEING USED!!!. thats why nokia have 35% of market share and Sony ericsson just 12%
sony ericsson innovative???? since when??? the only thing they have introduced was the spinner and its a popular form factor. (which was used by motorola in a different way).
The fm radio in the phone feature was copied from nokia. even the way it works its the same. nokia phones have radios for a LONG time now back in the 2000 maybe way before.
their popular form factor is again a copy of nokia. a block/candy phone without external antenna.
in their low end phones they are using nokia old Series 40 UI. and in the new one they are copying the nokia series 40 v2 - v3
have you seen the k800/790? ITS A EXACT COPY!!!!.
so SE its really innovative?
i have a question for nokia phones.....why are they made a phone that is not exactly on their camera pixel description??? ex. 1.3megapixel for 6230i...but in the phone its 1.2something....and i think this 2mp it is not exactly 2mp...hop you get it... :)
at last...nokia release its 3250...after 8months....rusty phone!!!
Anyway, i will still think that SE W810 will outwin Nokia 3250 as Sony is backing Sonyericsson unlike nokia which doesn't has any strong backing. People will still buy the walkman phone but for people who wants to install lots of software in their phone. They will choose nokia 3250.
Sony Ericsson a far more inovative all Nokias look the same and the Symbian OS is slow and boring to look I beleve this Sony has surrond and mega bass which will give it better sound quality and more depth .
Nokia sound quality is poor at best and their battery life on supposed smartphones leaves alot to be desired looks are not everything with phones quality of build and functionality are far more important therefore I believe the Sony to be a better phone.
I think size does matter though The Nokia is to big
Well, I think the quality of SE is always beyond Nokia's. You can see the display quality. Also, SE is more stylish and innovative as well.
WeLL Dudes.. the only thing better in SE is the camera capability
else dont cha ! think nokia being more elegant and user friendly ??
I don't think that SE is gonne be successful on the market. Its share speaks for itself. Only their k750 has great sales, but no other SE phone - they are not appealing at all. And w810 has nothing new for a k750 owners, ppl won't buy it.
SE is loosing. Just can't understand why you made so big fuss of the w810. An very old phone in new shell (looks really plasticly). Now i understand why. SE fans can only talking about SE in the web, no matter is phone good or not, too much SE applausing. So go ahead and buy it, what are u waiting for? Give additional 250$ to SE for the new shell!
I used many mobile from many brand name, one of them is a Sony Ericsson P910i. Nothing to be bad with a new SE phone, at everytime SE always give their phone many powerful feature and support almost kind of connectivity. Memory expand and many other is very good and I really love ther slogan "Like no others". I think I will sell my current O2 XDA IIs to buy SE W810i. I hope SE W810i is early on market!
I kinda agree with XennonX.
Nokia phones are very original and they never fail to surprise us with different designs on phones. Sony Ericsson does lack a bit of originality but the features on the phone are much better than Nokia and I think thats why more people are going for SE because people want a decent camera, and for a decent price you can get a 2MP camera with autofocus unlike Nokia which is a bit grainy.
All you guys hold a point, especially The G-Man, yeah there is a fight going on between Nokia & Sony Ericsson, but like many people said, Sony Ericsson (Though i hate to say this) lacks orgininality, whereas Nokia on the other hand try to flood the market with their phones. That is Nokia's big downfall.
Nokia also lacks the features Sony Ericsson has. To me that is a big downfall. I work in a Vodashop (Its a cell phone shop for South Africa's Vodacom network), and the latest trends of phones being sold is leaning towards Sony Ericsson, we are selling more & more each day, whereas Nokia is really suffering, then again Nokia is starting drop in its realibilty. So has a proud owner of a Sony Ericsson W900, yes W900, i would say if i didn't get my W900 i would have gotten the W810 for it has edge.
for the guy blaming SE on selling the same product under different names, the 3250 is based on the 3230, same hardware, except for stereo support (3230 was mono).
the 3250 doesnt stand a chance as a music phone, it will sell of course, but people who want to replace their bulky ipod or do not want to carry a fragile nano on top of their mobile will go blindly for the SE W series.
nokia sucks. it big and ugly. se w810 is the best phone se ever made. if your smart and know what your doing then ya'll go for the w810. because i know i am.
price of SE w810 is $599.99! compared with w800, d added $250 will give u EDGE, less internal memory, more contacts, older bluetooth version, revamp browser, and less talk time! oh i almost forgot, d newly made plastic for a new (but kinda same old boring design of K700, K750, W800) suggestion, sony ericsson must hire additional designer/s... nice work on removing joystick though..
