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.

AHSan, 13 Jan 2009Um a really big fan of this phone and am been trying to buy it lately...changing from my K810 ... moreWell i have got Good News for you, I upgraded to K850i from K810 aswell..
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!
.....N yes I would also welcome other useful information regarding this phone.
Um a really big fan of this phone and am been trying to buy it lately...changing from my K810 but i am getting a lot of complains especially with its camera shutter n software. So i would like to know if there r really such problems( n others) with the phone. I would really appreciate help from som1 who has used da phone n experienced problems with it. I wud like to stick with SE but there's no suitable choices which is forcing me to buy a Nokia phone(i'l probably go with N82). So is there som1 who can help me out????? Thnx.

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)
Regards from Brazil!
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

As for Nick. Am a little worried. Why not buy a decent digicam with optical zoom for less than half the money. Samsung phones have issues with java installation. I once had a D900. It could not instal java via wap and i had to instal two softwares on my PC to get it instal via PC and USB into its allotted limited 4MB space for java. The only thing going for samsung phones is beauty and poise. Think twice Nick. Don't let samsung's beauty limit your expressions.
The K850i will always be with me though, I absolutly love it, it will be in my collection of 'best phones iv ever had'

I really should get my hands on a Xperia X1 and give it a good test over, also N97 if i can, Iv never really been a fan of the Symbian, My last Symbian phone was the N-Gage(back in the day) - I will need to give the N97 a test run just to be 100% sure what i will be getting otherwise i do like the N97's features.
So i will have to wait to see if anyone has either of the 2 so i can test them so i know what im getting:)

I know how loyal you are with Nokia, same as my loyalty to SE. The reviews came from other sources so I don't know why you should be so bitter about it.
It all boils down to loyalty and how we see our phones.
To be honest I didn't see the K850i as my next phone (I was thinking more of Samsung or LG). But upon reading so many reviews and when I saw the phone in the shop it was love at first sight!!!
So your love for your N95 is the same for my love for my K850i.
Dani, 12 Jan 2009I DO Like Touchscreen phones! and I would like to have Windows Mobile.Dani, i once had a windows mobile phone: sagem S-7. It didn't meet my needs and turn had to give it away. The only thing you will enjoy in windows mobile is its perfect synch with your PC. Even the built in internet explorer was a joke. It could not download anything (they might have improved on that though). You will also have problems getting softwares, themes etc. Well if you insists..... But i still feel you should have the n97 if you like touchscreen and qwerty and you are not 8megapixel fixated like Nick. You'll love the phone.
