FYI mobile review is biased! u know y?? i've proven that a long time ago when they posted links where u can download N90's video capture thru their site they somewhat degraded the video and made it very unsmooth but in reality N90's video is great! plus let me tell u the review ur trying to tell me, i've read that already and what i can say?? the tested 3250 in there is completely based on UNFINALIZED and OLD firmware of 3250, bcoz the texts on d music player is black and not white like what u can find on newer 3250 sold at authorized nokia stores plus d fact that d equalizers in that tested 3250 is not working 100%, my suggestion to you is just test 3250 in reality coz i know for sure that u don't own a 3250 and really never had a chance to compare it head to head with W810. nokia 3250 is not overrated its just that mobile review is BIASED and they love Sony Ericssons, believe it or NOT! even mobilmania which GSMarena's source and was translated by them tested the UNFINALIZED and OLD firmware and even admitted it, i know that coz the twisting mechanism on their 3250 does not work that's strange coz mine works 100% plus d fact that they said booting 3250 will take u HALF MINUTE, that's ABSURD u know y?? in reality it only takes 15 seconds! see how can they be unfair?? they post reviews based entirely on UNFINALIZED firmware! those were the FACTS u need to know and disregard unfair reviews on the net that will only mislead fellas like u, if u still don't believe me then buy w810 and indulge on great BUGS awaiting just for you. and let me tell u this how can u say W810's bugs can be corrected easily bcoz of FOTA, what's d use of FOTA if SE does not release d updated firmware with no bugs plus FYI symbian 9.1 also supports FOTA too!
for me W810's design is like a toy and its d same new but OLD design of SE models taken from d ancient K700 nice work on removing joystick though. also K750, W800! i know u have not tried 3250 coz its almost as fast as a non symbian OS phone its about 85% faster than N70, N90, 6630 and 6680 in every aspect! please try d product first before saying unfair comments. 3250 and N91 owners will totally disagree with u re opening msg bcoz its quite fast now with symbian 9.1 d problem is u coz ur saying false info! btw, here's wat i said re music management..:
"w810 can't even recognize WMA and eAAC+ codecs plus all u get in the music folder is a big MESS of files they are not sorted the way like 3250 can (of course u can organize on W810 but its done manually) can W810 categorize by composer, title, album, artist, et al?? plus d ability to search for tracks "ala phonebook" on its music player??? the answer is NO!"
watch ur mouth. i said it can be done manually on W810 as supposed to 3250 that can do d sorting automatically by artist, composer, album (provided u've entered data when encoding) without manually transferring or making a playlist and d searching feature on d music library on 3250! is that clear enough for you??
u also don't have 3250 for sure! u know y? don't u know that 3250's equalizer also affects how d loudspeaker peforms??!?! MP3 and AAC are popular only, what matters most REALLY is how to use CODECS so u can MAXIMIZE precious space! walkman logo is just a mrktg gimmick HS-20 and SE W810's inbox earphone are almost d same in quality, perhaps ur just another victim of GSM arena's review taken from mobilmania's review of d UNFINALIZED firmware... display W810 has a tiny one 3250 has bigger in surface though has less pixels. 3250 has symbian OS it has more flexibility and possibilities than the stasis W810! video capture, W810 is no match to 3250! also u can edit videos on 3250 with real effects and transitions add music clips etc.! those reviews from mobile-review are USELESS bcoz people TRULY knows how 3250 performs in REAL life and not by just HEAR SAY! can W810 play long mp3 files (longer than 15 seconds) when set as ringtone, i guess not! can W810 save more than 1 number in a field under a name (e.g. 3 office nos, 2 home nos) in one name?? answer NO! u can transfer txt msgs on d memory card, can u do that on W810?

I am planning to buy this phone
Could any tell me how much memory is being supplied in box along with this phone.
BTW, same as 3250, you can organize the W810i's music accdg to artist, title or playlist. Viperkid mentioned this cant be done on the W810i.
I would have to agree w/ Max. SE W810i sounds, looks and functions way better than 3250. Lets enumerate:
3250 can only make the sound louder, but the quality and clarity is not at par w/ W810i. As for the format, what matters is MP3 and AAC. The other formats are not as widely used. The headphones of Walkman units have better quality.
The swivel controls look like they would not be as tight after a few months. All moving parts in phones are like this. Interior memory of 3250 is only 10 mb while W810i is 20mb. Although both have a memory card. Display-wise, its a no contest. Although both have 2MP cameras, the image in W810i is so much clearer. It also has flash whereas 3250 has none. As for the user interface, it depends on what u are used to. Both are easy to navigate but W810i's software is faster in basic functions like reading text messages. W810i has both bluetooth and IR, 3250 only has bluetooth. W810i is quadband, 3250 is triband.
As far as looks is concerned, I would choose the sleek matte black W810i over the boxy and bulky 3250 anytime.
Anyway, both are nice phones. Its just a matter of preference. :)
Viperkid: Those complaints about software w/ SE w810i can easily be corrected by software upgrades, w/c can be done over the air already. No need to visit service centers. I beg to disagree w/ u re: the speakers sound of Nokia being better. I suggest you check this site out
It is a detailed comparison between music phones, between, moto, se and nokia, looks like nokia is last.
Plus, symbian mobiles are slow. Just opening the inbox message takes a few seconds. Ho-hum....add to this the ugly design of 3250. Looks like a black cigarette pack...The swivel bottom would probably fall off after a few months.
This site tells it all. How Motorola Rokr e2 and SE Walman phones whoopes Nokia 3250's arse...
if im not mistakin, d extension ".rm" is a video type file of Real (the thing is the files u have are really for videos and really not meant for audio) dat's y 3250 recognizes em as video files. i suggest dat u convert ur mp3 or any format to ".ram" type of file by Real Media too, in this way 3250 will treat it as an audio file so u can add it to ur music library. im not that familiar when it comes to RealMedia but i guess that's d best i can suggest... hope it works.. but wait u can try to use d file manager on 3250, locate all ur .rm files and select em all then choose options then move after that find the folder "Digital" under Sounds folder on ur microSD finally move it there..
re balance checking, all we can do now is wait for a better firmware of 3250, and expect dat the new firmware supports the type of checking a balance, we can have it updated by ourselves if im not mistakin over-the-air coz its under S60 3rd Edition!
Also, 2day i loaded RM file songs onto my mobile from the data cable and all of them went to the video clips folder in the gallery. After updating the music library as per ur instructions, all the songs from the tracks folder were updated into the music library but not the ones from this video clips folder.
Also if you could temme a site from where i could get some good themes.
Thx dude !! u rock
Yeah by onscreen balance i meant not able to check my balance. My service provider is airtel and earlier i used to get my onscreen bal by dialing *123# which am not able to now with this handset.
go to music player after it choose options then music library then hit options again then click "Update Music Library" just wait a wyl then boom all ur newly added tracks appears on the music library! as for the other inquiry, can make it clearer what do u mean by
"am not able to get my onscreen balance on the phone"
did u mean ur trying to check ur balance??
W810 has too many software issues its not worth its price! a great camera alone is not what people want in a mobile phone! i've heard too many complaints on the W810 page! and besides loudspeaker on W810 is soft and d sound quality is inferior than 3250 i've tested them head to head and i found out that W810 has no match to 3250! plus w810 can't even recognize WMA and eAAC+ codecs plus all u get in the music folder is a big MESS of files they are not sorted the way like 3250 can (of course u can organize on W810 but its done manually) can W810 categorize by composer, title, album, artist, et al?? plus d ability to search for tracks "ala phonebook" on its music player??? the answer is NO!
i think its a very good fone and i cant wait 2 buy it!!!!!!!!! especialy with its quality speakers ............i just fell in love with it!!!!!!!! in romania it costs about 350$
To those contemplating on buying this, I suggest you check out Sony Ericsson W810i first, which IMHO is the best music phone right now. Aside from a pretty and responsive (unlike the slowpoke symbian phones)interface, it looks great and pictures are way better than 3250. And it costs just a few dollars more. 3250 will be a flop.
The music files that i transfer from the data cable go directly to the tracks folder in the gallery. I want to put these tracks into the music library but am not able to do so, is there any way by which i can do it?
Also am not able to get my onscreen balance on the phone. Kindly address these issues if u can.
