Couldn't careless personaly. I love my K850, its such a unique design, great build quality, excellent camera that ive modded, great sound quality due to me modifying it with diff acoustics, awesome menu layout that ive modified, etc. . .ive modded my K850 so much so that i doubt there's any other K850 that has exactly the same software in its firmware, ive totaly made it My K850 to suit me and i love it like that, i cant say the same for my now unhackable N81 :( i love it to but its now unhackable and ordinary, ive just put it in its box and waiting til theres a new hack.
My K850i has beaten all the N-Series counterparts when it comes to camera!!!!!!
mehedi, 05 Jan 2009is maga bass a good software?dose it play a good role in music?mega bass is not a software its a equalizer preset for s.e. k series / w series / c series . it pumps up the bass volume through ur headset . if ur using a good set of headset its noticable when using the mega bass preset its giving more quality sounds than any other preset or custom made preset .
the s.e. k850i menus and the software used is very easy and fun to use . yes its fun and easy even faster than the s40 os . different people have different tastes so i prefer u first use a s40 os and hang around its menus then use the k850i menus and the media and hang around through those for a few min's u'll get something to ur mind . good luck .
Frantic, 05 Jan 2009I've had the 850i for about 13 months now, and experienced a software malfunction 2 days ago..... moreSo you want to retrieve your message? Then you connect your phone to the comp and select phone mode. After that, you will be able to view your inbox. If you want to save them into your comp, then right click the message you want to save and click save as. But after that how to restore it back to the phone I am really unable to help. Very sorry for my incompetence.
K850i is the legend from K-series family! Most powerful platform from SE!
-Photos n videos?..Take k850,c902!
-Sound quality?..Take w980,w890!
-Multimedia?..Take Xperia,w960 !
-Daily usage?..Take k800,c702!
Dee, 05 Jan 2009Well, I mean the QVGA (320x240) used much more memory than the 176x144. Indeed the QVGA looks ... morewell of course it would take longer to proccess a video which was 3x more quality. and of course the k850 has a very weak proccessor so it would take even longer!
tbh if you want a complete cameraphone then the cybershot range should be avoided as a rule since SE will never bother spending the money needed upgrading their hardware, thus rendering their phones incapable of recording anything above 320x240.
Toguro, 05 Jan 2009Where did you find the k550i picture quality? At esato.com ???no buddy one of my cuzins own one . i played with it for a few hours last week . not bad at all with the brand name s.e. and all . its doing fine at day times ( i said its doing fine in daylight ) at night times it takes a bit awful pics .
can any one tell me what's the latest k850 firmware ?
is any firmware newere than RIFA035 ?
I've had the 850i for about 13 months now, and experienced a software malfunction 2 days ago...as I was retrieving an SMS message stored on the phone, it unexpectedly froze, then shut down and restarted automatically. Since then I haven’t been able to access my inbox, sent items or outbox, likewise i cannot send or receive SMS messages. I have tested the SIM in another handset and it works fine so there is no fault with the SIM card. My dilemma is that i fear the software has been corrupted, and that I will need to do a software upgrade/replacement, but i am wondering if this can be done without wiping the pre-existing SMS messages stored on the handset. I have heard that performing this upgrade will wipe all existing messages, essentially reformatting the phone- a situation i would prefer to avoid.
It seems the SMS messages are still on the phone, but i simply cannot retrieve them since the function to open the inbox does not work. When i select the inbox i get a handset message returned saying 'operation failed' and there is no count of messages that were previously sent to me giving the impression that there are NO messages. But when i check the memory status, it hasn’t changed to indicate the message have been wiped- so they are still in the memory somewhere.
I’m desperate, and will welcome anyone’s advice at this stage- Is there a way to salvage the SMS messages on the handset and do the software replacement/upgrade to permit the sending and receiving of SMS messages?
Worm, 04 Jan 2009Again, when u say natural, u mean washed out & i have been a SE fan since t68i also & no i hav... moreWell all I can say is I love the K850i and yes no need for comparison. Plus I have found some tricks with the photo management which made me love it more. HAPPY NEW YEAR.
nick, 04 Jan 2009qvga doesnt use a lot of memory because the detail within the video isnt very...rich?
Well, I mean the QVGA (320x240) used much more memory than the 176x144. Indeed the QVGA looks better though, but when I want to edit the video in the VideoDJ, it takes much longer time to load.
I once had K790 and I still remember that the loading time is faster. Of course, K790 can only produce the 176x144 video.
What do you think?
Dani, 05 Jan 2009Hmmmm yeah, My K850i is one of the last ones produced so its complete in every aspect. and ... moreManikandan has the k850 and n82. He used to think k850 camera was better, until he bought the n82! He posted quite a while back n82 pictures are far better!
