Anista, 11 Dec 2008hi guys am aving a problem wix ma K850i..the touchpads ain't responding!! anybdy encountere... moreI have encountered such a problem before and it is due to the damage caused when it was ship here. The K850i touch pads are extremely sensitive (like a touch screen) and thus might be spoiled when the pressure was too much. It is best you go and have your phone replace with a new K850i and you will find paradise within it.=)
jas11, 11 Dec 2008I love my K850i!!! The camera is to die for!!! You just need to get used to handling it and af... moreYes, I agree with you. In night mode, they K850i is invincible. Not even the N82 can match it. The K850i also produces natural looking photos unlike the Nokia N-series which produces digital photos. My Master always tell me this, "The photographs that have colours equivalent to what our eyes see are the best photos." So far, only K850i met that saying and I am truly happy for buying this. I would never change it even if I were to die.
Tsepz, 11 Dec 2008Why get another phone? Simply get a 8GB MicroSD and mod your K850 with W980 or W902 acoustics ... moreI see, thanks.=) Than maybe I won't buy another phone. Hehe, going to try it out tonight.
ray, 11 Dec 2008how can i fix the touchpads when they aren't responding anymore?Hmm, you can go to the seller and ask him to help you fix it since the warranty is still on. If he says can't, then better go and ask for a replacement phone.
Chinese made, 11 Dec 2008Outsource is what SE is doing, never seen last five years made n Sweden or elsewhere only some... moreChina's products are excellent nowadays. I have read up in the magazine that the SE branch in China is very well disciplined and is under strict surveillance so that the products are up to the expectations. The workers in the factory are also very dedicated and products which didn't meet the expectations are scrap off. That's why the SE products are now very durable. For your information, all the mobile phones now (including Nokia) are assembled in China. So if you said SE isn't durable, then sorry my friend all the other brands in the market are also not durable. You are being prejudice.
Robert, 11 Dec 2008U are right in 1 way Dexter,get Nokia for all rounder phone. i hve had this phone for a month ... moreI think you got me wrong, I never said that SE sucks. SE rocks and so does Nokia. Indeed Nokia is superb in functions but it's comments from my peers are "it is nothing more than a copy phone." I only want it since I cannot afford a HTC (sad to say). SE K850i is super solid and durable, mine has went diving in the pool for 3 times already and it is still working like new. Nokia is a good phone but entertainment wise, it loses SE. I like the SE graphics more, they are more innovative. I think Nokia has run out of ideas and that's why they are repeating the same design. Bear in mind: N82 is a copy of K850i. I am aiming for next year's Nokia phones since they got some new applications implemented into their N-series.
I love my K850i!!! The camera is to die for!!! You just need to get used to handling it and after that its smooth sailing. For those who complain about it hanging or slowing down, tell me a phone that doesn't. In many other reviews this phone aced the camera department. I really recommend this phone for photographers (at heart) like me. :-)
nick, 11 Dec 2008id agree with you that the w850 is a good durable phone, which is why a lot of people have the... moreSo was N95 when it came out with its buggy firmware and battery life - I bet N95 has more returns then K850i.
N95 at time of release was one of the most buggy and highest ranked returned phone.
K850i NOW with the new R1FA firmware is PERFECT.
and im guessing your N95 is with the 3.1 firmware aswell!
so its equal.
Dr Adedoyin, 11 Dec 2008How do you mod your k850i with W980 or W902 accoustics? ThanksAll that you need to help you mod is here: http://www.esato.com/board/viewtopic.php?topic=177034 its very easy.
Outsource is what SE is doing, never seen last five years made n Sweden or elsewhere only some P990i were made n France. When you buy international custom brands the Origin is dam important, if it is Chinese you expect half price. Ping i2 golf kit made n china is 500$ less than made n Usa. Se must increased screen size to 3" and lower price it has become trade mark after release it drop the steepest. K850 is best but never again Will SE even try to repeat its face features ad style.

but the k850 is NOT. stop lying to yourself. yours has broken numerous times, i know plenty of people who have had to send them back. it was a disaster phone with a crap camera.
