nick, 06 Nov 2008thats all very well, but you're hacking your phone to bring it up to a standard level. sounds ... moreit just means that k850i is more versatile than your n95 symbian.. you can't do anything with your n95. now that there are a lot of camera drivers we can choose depending on our taste, this is surely a better 5mp cam phone. :)
in the first place, we want our phone to be personalized right?! this is way better than depending on symbian 3rd party apps. this is what makes se phones more exciting and worth keeping.
possibilities are endless. :)
Dani, 06 Nov 2008Thanks for sharing, i will Mod my K850 defanatlyThis stuff about modding the phone sounds yummy.Just bought this 2 mths ago n loving it.Great camera n great ui n overall the best multimedia java phone.Looks stunning too.I believe that those who bought this currently wont have much problem as its been improved.Hopefully if se makes more symbian n wm phones,they will still continue to make multimedia java phones with more functions.Can give more details on modding this phone?Thks.

and dani, what do you suggest, we all buy non-smartphones in the hope someone will hack it in the near future?
Thanks. But how could that be happened? It has always been fully charging it before turning it on. ???
I have my K850 for about 2 weeks. Everything works fine but I have found a problem on the battery. I always turns off the phone before charging it. When I see the message of "Fully Charged", I unplug the charger, and turn on my phone. And it shows the battery power only 96%, not 100%. I just wonder if it is a normal thing that happens to all K850. Thanks.
I want to buy this SE k850i.How is the overall performance pls help me?
suggest some good phone which have 5mp camera?
please help me?
All you need is here: http://www.esato.com/board/viewtopic.php?topic=177034 my K850 is soo awesome right now, the new Cam Driver by Strong worked like a charm, pics are natural and sharp not dull and washed out like before.

Dani, 06 Nov 2008I want to Mod my K850 to, so please send me the links how to do it.wow! k850i can now be modded! wow!!!!!!!!! revamping and enhancing camera driver is on-going! way to go modders!
as what the modders have said:
-they will compress jpeg size of k850i
-decrease the iso and less exposure
-balance the color(will make the colors LIVELIER and VIVID!) will increase the blues,greens,reds on your in post processing of photos!
this is fun!!!!!! nice modders!
this is what differs nokia users from SE/Moto users. SE users THINK while nokia users WAIT. nokia users are lazy. always DEPENDENT ON SYMBIAN 3rd party apps!
Am using K850i since last 6 months and there is a major display problem (no display at all) Phone works in background.Have given in authorised service centre but now it is more than 12 days. Am getting only one reply i.e. "pending for parts"
I didnot know Sony Ericsson has such 3rd grade after sales service. And to top it off no standby Handset was given.
Anyone thinking of going for any sony Ericsson products should be discouraged
Im a happy S60 Nokia and Java SE user. For those of you who know me from Esato you will have seen the pics ive taken with N82, N95-8gb, my N81, N73, E90, And My K850. I like all those phones. My best mates have N95-2 and N82. Using my K850 next to those phones is cool, ive learnt that all these phones have strong and weak points. The N95 may have been revolutionary but so was the SE P800 and P910. The N95 is a brilliant feature packed device but has an average UI and user experience compared to a K850. I honestly cant decide which i like more. The K850 is a fantastic phone. I updated to R1FA035 and its been working like a machine since. Having HSDPA, 5MP cam with Xenon, a BEAUTIFUL AND CRYSTAL CLEAR CRISP display, Netfront3.4 HTML web browser etc. . .in such a nice lil package is a dream come true! The K850 poses a charm that the N95 could never have. K850 is just so compact! I love it. Offcourse i still use my N81 for Movies, YouTube and some other tasks but my K850 has become my main phone, i dont always need the symbian apps and the extra heft the N81 comes with. Ive now modded my K850! Added the W980 Acoustics and it is now seriously loud! I dnt dare put the volume higher than 60%, also added 6 new Flash Themes, put in a new Camera Driver with AMAZING results and ive changed my Music Player's layout. I now realy dont see why people are comparing N95 to K850. At the end of the day the average user will not use Symbian, or Wi-Fi so their N95 will be no different to a K850 realy, get what i mean?
Is there anyone who can help me how I can open the camera of my mom's K850? She already took it to the service center of SE but says it may take awhile for them to fix it... coz it won't open even when the camera is on which should be automatic, right? help! its a brand new phone, barely just 2 weeks... thanks!
Mr. H, 05 Nov 2008last week i buy the new 1, when i try to take the photo in my office at day time even i use fl... moreIt can get confusing when you take photo from K850 and its dark... but I discovered the reason for that is you have to manually turn on the flash and/or press the camera button longer so the picture would come out ok (not dark). I'm not sure why that is the case though, because sometimes it happens with my C902 as well. hope i answered your ? H.
