On the other hand the c905 is a sight to behold, not to mention the 8 mpx camera. Reviews from all over have hailed it as one of the best phones of 2008, if not the best phone altogether. But personally my disappointment with the c905 was its lack of front camera for video calls (which i do a lot coz i work far from home). Maybe they did that with the China market in mind (they don't have 3G there yet) like what they did to the K850i (China version K858, no 3G and no front cam).
excuse me 'doctor', i do not have a 'megapixel fixation'. i can see your argument about buying a digital camera then getting a normal phone, but don't want to have to carry around multiple devices. The innov8 is also a really good music phone.
just looking at some of the innov8's sample photos, i am really impressed and i cannot see why anyone would buy the c905. i really cant.
I tried out the Macro Focus and Twighlight settings of my K850i and boy was I blown away!!! Trully breathtaking shots with the simplest subjects!!!
I strongly suggest you experiment with your K850i's camera and Photo DJ. If you get the hang of it, you will be getting near-professional or even professional looking pics!!!
Watch out for my photo blog where I will be posting pics I took with my K850i.

K850i is perfect with the new Firmware, Stable-Fast-Easy to use, Iv been using my K850 since May 2008 and it still works and looks like new!
The camera is all good, NO Problems at all.
It could be the best 5MP in a Phone.
Just buy it and you wont regret!

I don't care if I loose language packs, since I always use my phone in US-English.
There's any way?
Dr Adedoyin, 13 Jan 2009That's the idea Dani. As the biblical injunction goes "test every spirit......"
As for Nick... moreYeah i understand what you mean, My cousin has the Samsung G600 - and he cant do half the things i can do with my K850i...
I can do more things then he can like Multitask, Applications(Java), Memory, Store more messages
He has alot of limitations on his G600, Thats why iv never got Samsung Phones.
I would rather get SE.

So i assume your K850i is up to date!
Hello! Finaly my K850 is in my hands now and I'm very happy with it.
Dani, Jas and others k850' gurus... I need some advice here.
What is the best way to firmware upgrade my phone? I've tried using SEUS but it says: no update available. Using XS++ 3.1 says phone not supported. My current firmware is R1FA031 and I wanna upgrade to R1FA035.
Any clues? (my phone is totally unlocked and got CID52 -> I don't know what it means, anyway)

first you only use xenon flash on close objects, even a minolta slr's flash will make a landscape or farshot dark.
dont use pirate memory cards, and it will read fine.
dont run a million apps at once, such as porn, and hacking and opera mini and and and, as you (not teenagers like to do)
and I M H F O!!!
the nokia is more teenager targeted than the se, all se's never gave me a day's problem.
if you wanna come complain about hard resets? be honest how many you do with your n series? Nseries is satanspawn, all of them, runners up to that is the HTC smartphones...
That time I have bought N95 and I get attracted with this K850i especially the lighting effect. At last I only use this suck phone 2 week and throw out to the seller immediately and straight away go to N95 8GB because this phone really got a lot problem
1. The automatic lens cover wil spoil easily
2. When capture image at night, the xenon flash will make the whole image to darken dont know what happen
3. System is slow and sometimes cant load memory card
4. The phone will turn off automatically and need to master reset many times shit
If I know this I rather use back N95 this good phone
But I only want to try K850i and know got how much percent this phone out of N95 But not yet try already know N95 would be more more more better than K850i SE only focus on Teenager market thats why the phone is cheap and quality is low not like Nokia got low medium and high line of choice got cheap and expensive for users
