...have played since it came out here in Canada which by chance was like the first place to get it, like it a lot, yet I have noticed that some ppl have broken keys, can't say the one I used to use had the same issue, I dropped it like 4 times, bad falls, yet the phone kept on working, I used the locked version to Rogers so some features are disabled, issues with the slider are as normal as with other slides in my own view or experience, still as I always recommend, wait for a couple of months before jumping into a newly released phone.
about there is no NOTIFICATION OF MISSED EVENTS...
the review team meant that there is no notification when the display is in sleep mode i.e. when in the clock is displaying ( screensaver )....there wont be an icon of a missed call or an unread message..!
but ofcourse if u activate the display it will show u missed events!!
shouldnt came into the disads list i think :S
I rather buy the nokia 5300 than this one it is cheaper and you can get the sound quality that you want when you buy a good Earbuds... Or i will buy the Nokia 5700 Express music it comes in a right price and a dedicated Sound Chip with all the functions that you needed. Better check it out (Nokia 5700)
Great review! Is such a cool device and very thin too!
Loving the light effects, the Walkman Player 2.0, shake feature, FM radio, sport applications... EVERYTHING!
There is something wrong.....I have the Phone.....you say that the there is No notification of missed events......but actually there is!!!
really annoying disads in this fone ...
speaker in the d-pad made me realize that it wont have any quaility att all !!!
well, my w850 is better ...
advice: if u want a good walkman now >> get the W850 or the W880 or wait for the higher ones ... dont get below W8XX i mean no W7XX or W5XX :D
actually this phone sucks
i can buy (same price) much better phone
this phone have no 3G
and its camera is so bad
\not to buy this phone
Too much positive review... I have this phone for a three weeks and four keys are already cracked. Slider is loosy, and navigation keys are too tight. And also I was disappointed with plastic quality, too cheap.
All in all, I returned it due problem with keys and I think that Samsung U600 is so much better opinion with lower price. It is very solid built, great design and materials, and awesome camera compared to W580 terrible one. Also U600 sound quality is way better than this walkman one. Are you still think that SE is better in music than others? Walkmanis just a marketing gimmick for youth, I realized this when tried samsung sound quality with dedicated sound chip from bang&polufsen.
I don't understand how SE can price this handset so high while Samsung has so much nicer phones like U600.
I think W580 will flop with so unproven high price, hope SE will realize their mistakes, otherwise Samsung will beat SE all the time like they already did with G600 5ive megapixel phone which photo quality is already better than K850 quality.
In the end I must say that the review is not good at all, GSMArena haven't mentioned its weaknesses but praised advantages. Guys you can't compare W580 to Nokia 5300 because it is two times cheaper. Compare it to U600 for example which is better in every field but cost comparable!
kinda surprising that they have actually liked the kepypad and havent mentioned its problem like in the opinions. Well, that seems like a good sign :)
