I don't understand why they keep bashing the K850i. Here are some reviews:
So there you have it. The Sony Ericsson K850i is the best camera phone on the market today, but the Nokia N95 and LG Viewty come a close joint second, and offer features the K850i doesn't. The G600 comes in last, but is still worth considering if only for its size and price. (from mobilementalism.com)
The K850i’s camera ability is second to none, although the odd keypad layout may not appeal to everyone. (fr http://www.3g.co.uk/PR/Nov2007/5432.htm)
so if it was a bad phone to begin with, these reviews wouldn't have come to be...
nick, 08 Jan 2009winmo is hard on a 3.8 inch screen, let alone a 3"!!
Innov8 it is!! or even C905 (Possibly)
what you think of the N97 ?
Also, Sony Ericsson sold 60 million music enabled phones in 2006, including 17 million Walkman devices, underlining how its products are more popular than Apple's iPod. Apple sold 46 million iPods in 2006. 'According to the Swedish Magazine M3s issue 7/2006 Sony Ericsson is the best-selling phone brand in the Nordic countries, followed by Nokia'
Sony Ericsson have also had great success with their Cyber-shot brand. It was launched in 2005 by the K750 which was one of the most popular Sony Ericsson phones. The reason's were it had Memory Card capability, which was very novel then. The Cyber-shot became very popular very quickly, because unlike Walkman, which had a very good media package and a poor camera, it had a decent media viewing and good cameras.
'In 2007 their first 5-Megapixel camera phone, the K850 was announced. It was very successful. They also announced the C905 in 2008, which was very important because it was the worlds first announced 8-Megapixel phone.'

The only Sonyericsson support we have is in Johannesburg, and my phone went there 5 times in a spand of three months for the same bloody problem...the screen goes blank, involuntary reboots, camera problems...its endless. and the support i got form my service provider is really pathetic...i had the support team from my service provider, tell me that SE software is not compatible with the network (wont mention the providers name). i mean what crap is that...a phone wont be designed if it wasn't compatible.

vLowJaber, 05 Jan 2009K850i is the legend from K-series family! Most powerful platform from SE! -Photos n videos?... moreYes I totally agree with you, the K850i is a legendary phone so much so that not just one but TWO nokia phones are being pitted against it - the N95 and the N82. While I do not question the quality of these two phones, I am partial to the fact that the K850i is the best 5mpx camera phone. Add to that the killer music player and HSDPA.
