Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well you should realise that buying a Nokia of that segment will pinch you several times,
but still it depends on you, if you want only volume and "N series of Nokia" just to show off then you can go for N81,
but w910i has better looks and better audio quality then N81, (I know that it is buggy and tends to get slower with time, but so does Nokia)and also, you get a better set of headsets which put the stock headsets of Nokia on shame(same goes for samsung),
but what I think and believe is its better to buy an i450 with some 3rd party headphones, if you can't tolerate slow and sluggish interfaces,
an i450 with 3rd party headphones is going to cost the same as N81,
the benefits are better audio quality, pleasant aural experience, responsive interface, but if you can tolerate slow interfaces then go for w910 because it has better looks, audio quality, needless to say decent set of headphones, and yes a better camera although all of the three phones have a 2 MP module....
Well, its better to have a lower internal volume in your phone(i450), which can be corrected actually, then to have your mobile in the customer care for 2 months repeating every 6-7 months(N81),
But if you are really into music go buy a dedicated music player instead of a music phone.
feedbacks are welcome
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2008The N81 does both Volume and Quality better.HA HA
Then boy go and test your ears,
accept this that you can only speak in anonymity.......
I have hands on experience on almost every music player manufacturer out there in the market(except Cowon), I won't say that i450 comes near their standards but certainly has a clarity factor that Nokia lacks.
Even the sony w910i(my previous consideratoion) distorts the sound on higher volumes.
Its bad to think of Quantity instead of Quality
(Yes, and I guess that you think Apple as the best music player manufacturer!! )
If yes, then
HA HA, boy think again,
or should I say, Go check again

For "Naveen Singh"
We all know that i450 packs a very good audio quality but is little on volume and everybody is sad about the stock headsets.
As you have already mentioned that we should use 3rd party headsets and have generously named a few headsets and Sennheiser MX 160 as the best tested, but a few owners would like to know whether is there any increase in the Audio Volume or not.
I know that it will sound annoying to you but for others who don't have any hands on experience with 3rd party headphones, connected with this phone, will like a conformation from your side(as you are active here) about the increase in volume before they go and pump their saved money into some headphone and feel that with this phone, even they are crap.
Also please explain why a higher SPL, low distortion, high energy conversion ability of a headphone is needed instead of saying that "just look for this and that or else you will kick yourself if you buy one which is void of these."
And hopefully this will be able to shut the mouths of all those Nokians that roar for N81 and 5320 Xpress"Crap"Music in anonymity and are completely satisfied with their volume pumping phone which is of course, without quality.
Your prompt response will be apprreciated!!
I bought the All black i450 and i love it.
i dont know why people here say that they cant install apps, themes.. though i have'nt encountered any issues on the apps and themes i have downloaded over the internet.
sound quality is fair enough not that loud but very clear. sometimes loudness actually depends on how an mp3 was converted.
the headset that came with the phone is fair enough, not comfortable to the ear that's why i have to buy a nice headset for the 35mm jack and sound was superb.
keypad is so soft. controls are OK.
the phone is not really prone to smudges just take care of it.
just remember that you cant have everything perfectly in one phone, each made with a special function.
o yea, one more thing, do we need special theme maker tool for this phone? bcoz i was using the carbide theme maker for Nokia S60s, but can't install the theme i made to the phone... 'certificate error'? or something like that...
KRISHNA, 23 Sep 2008yes, it is a very nice phone. i just want ot buy it.but the problem is it is not available in ... moreIn Australia it is only available in black.. and i really wanted the blue... i just ordered it and should get it soon omg so excited :)
i'm a samsung lover since i can buy my first phone. kinda dissapointed to see this phone is using Nokia software since i'm not too fond of Nokia.. XD
Well, i've bought this phone and is currently confused to know that the sound volume on my i450 is way too low. i think my (former) D500 is louder on max (although with rubbish sound).
I see that few ppl is having the same problem with it. But i haven't found any clear solution for it besides using a 3rd Party headphones...
Is there really no way to boost up the sound volume (on the normal n extended speaker or the headphones)?
any recomended settings or software to use in this case?
thx for the input guys...
SAMSUNG is THE BEST (for me thou^o^) and keep on progressing upwards....
Finally i choose this handset over nokia 5320 and E51 3 days ago because my friends said that Samsung has a better sound than N70 music edition. And some of you said that it has Iphone sound system. Im a bit dissapointed here. The sound is good,although its better than most handset,i expect it better than this. It Samsung anyway ,and a music edition too. It should better than any other samsung series. But,i didnt regret for buying it. The design is nice and unique. It has many feature,and for me it easier to use compare to other handset except Nokia. The only downside so far is the sound and the user guide (i thought personally that Nokia has far more complete n thoroughly user guide). Hey Samsung crew, what are you doing,this is a music edition, you should make it better and louder. Anyway,did any of you know how to silent the starting n closing music? And what about the memory, is it 40mb share with program?cause mine only 25mb. One more thing,how to use and setting hsdpa? Forgive my idiot question. Im new to Samsung and a smartphone
Naveen Singh, 18 Sep 2008I dont understand many users on this forum complaining that i450 does't displays Album Art but... moreRegarding album art. Which version of firmware you told for? DDHC1 Does not support it.
yes, it is a very nice phone. i just want ot buy it.but the problem is it is not available in black color here. all the distibutors replied it is avail in blue clor. what can i do ? is this true ? pls reply soon. i want to get ot as early as possible.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2008as a music phone i450 is better. for games n81 is better plus it has wifi but it's soft is buggyHow dare you compare this to the Great Multimedia N81. GSMArena and M-R ALREADY proved that the N81 is the better Music Device, BUT then again you cant completely compare N81 and i450. The N81 is a MULTIMEDIA Phone built around Music, Gaming, Multitasking, Web and Video. Whereas the SAMSUNG i450 is. . . . .MUSIC. . . .
Agreed with Naveen though the i450 can display album art, it seems to be very tricky to do though, whilest on my N81 i can add the album art right here using its music player, NO computer needed :-D you gota love the Nseries.
thıs phone ıs very nıce l lıke ıt and ı take tomorrow in turkey 200dollar
audio science, 27 Aug 2008hey, does it display album art for the current track in the music player mode? I dont understand many users on this forum complaining that i450 does't displays Album Art but actually it displays very well. I Have tested it with both MP3 and M4A files and is displayed very well.
kuuyu, 08 Sep 2008why this unit is so expensive? this cost P15,000 something like that.. in the phil. why this unit is so expensive?......
Because it use lot of components made by other brands.
It has Nokia S60 OS, Apple sound processor and B&O ICE Amplifier.
Obviously they will not give it to there compititor company for free.
