I'd say its lot better then K750 & W800 Series, cause it does'nt got a joy stick (Lever) On the front, I have K300i right now & I'm about to change it, cause the joystick does'nt functions very well any more, I used it for more then 6 months, i was very carefull about its joystick & heard about its malfunctioning before having one, But over all its the best hand set u can get in its price, I thought W810 will be the perfect cell phone but the negative point is, it does'nt got any shutter for camera protection ... But it looks are kool ... & i'll gonna get it for sure, no matter any body likes it or not, I'm in love with SE.
I've had this phone for approx. 3 weeks now..
and here are the dissatisfiers (sorry i couldnt be bothered listing the satisfiers)
difficult to take out battery, EXTREMELY difficult to take out the sim card (it's locked in once you insert, still possible to remove)
you cannot turn off shutter noises when taking pictures.
camera lag and shutter lag
there is no flash in camera mode, only a light option
the buttons are very very closely packed together i.e. increased rate of wrong keys pressed
the screen is slightly prone to visible fingerprints.
the keys are hard to adjust to (they are all backwards and mixed around compared to other brand models)
LOW LEVEL DISSATISFIERS:
there is no 'greeting message'
there arent enough games already on the phone
only 2 available key/button tones
can't run games while on a phone call (what a bummer)
battery capacity isn't very large (this phone is meant for strong use i.e. mp3 player)
I personally dislike the calculator layout
and that about sums it up. the dissatisfiers are heavily outweighed though, by the pure sexiness and style once accustomed, the usage is very swift, very feature packed and the screen size often turns me on ;)
overall i give it a 9.2/10
had sony phones for 3 years now and every one i get is better than the last by a long way.
the display on the w810 appears to be a lot better than the k750 and w800 and the night shot function on the camera is miles better, there is a lot less noise on the picture.
had mine for 3 months and i'm incredibly happy. all in its a better all round package than the n91 which is far heavier and much more expensive.
well firstly, i'm sure there are better answers than plainly 'you shouldnt buy this because this or that is coming out'
secondly, i'm getting it and if no one else does i'm still pleased. maybe even more so.
