Great fone with an even greater screen & cam. Camera images are fantastic with xenon flash. Screen is very clear & themes are deligtful to look at and the touchpads do their job. The Smart Search function is cool though. Saves time opening your Contacts. But i guess that's where the positives halt.
The "Media" function can be buggy, causing the fone to restart at times. The Shortcut key may not work causing you to reboot the fone.
Had the fone for about a month now & battery life is poor at 2 days with minimal use(calls, couple of foto snaps). Battery has a lower mAh than my W850 (930 vs 950). Speaker just isn't loud enough to enjoy music.
Not impressed with the buttons either as they are kinda hard to get used to; and I'm not used to them. Wanted to make a call and noticed the no 7 button wasn't there!! It came off in my pocket and had to glue it back on. Basically, build quality is poor.
I have used SE fones for d last 4 yrs(K700, K750, W850 and K850) & had good experiences opening every box but it seems SE are gettin stale on ideas now.
If SE dont buck up quick, Nokia's going to snatch SE fans away...
next week im going to buy this phone

Hi, i wanted to ask those ppl who used k850i whether there is any record about the files that we've sent or received via bluetooth?
3 days after buying this phone my contact pistures stopped working. It also likes to turn itself off. The touchscreen gets pressed on your face when you make a call. but other than that it is a great phone. great camera, good functions and easy to use.
hi guys i want to ask from the people who use k850 that is there any option in the phone by which we can find out what data we've sent through bluetooth to the other phone? Like we have sent messages folder does this phone have any bluetooth sent items folder? i'll be waiting for a response
How do i dismantle the k850i

*i was ones a SE fan, sadly 850i took the joy away...
my k850i jus stoped working during a call. it cant come bck on even thou i know the battery is charged. the keypads light up but nothing sows up on d screen. somebody please help me..........
guys, i sold my k850i(10,500 pesos) for a nokia n82 which costs for about P18,400. (US$1 = P47). i miss my k850i for its simplicity and user friendliness. symbian s60 may be good but if you aren't gonna maximize the OS to the fullest, i still recommend you to get K850i.
i have to be honest, the camera of N82 is better than K850i since k850 has some camera driver issues. nevertheless, k850 is better than N95. Xenon flash is big plus and it's a must for a camera phone these days.
How do you download album art into your phone? I've wasted 2 hours searching for the right album art and when I played the music, there's no album art at all! Very frustrated right now. Anyone got any tips to solve this problem?
K850 video is better than K810
K850: Video size:QVGA (320x240)
Frame rate:30 fps
The camera phone is better than C902
K850: Light (Xenon):Off, Auto, Red eye reduction
ISO setting: 400, 200, 100, Auto

(THE COPY & PASTE FUNCTION).
PERFECT GSM PHONE WITH WALKMAN-PHONE 3.0 SERIES

phonebook up to 7000 number.

Furthermore, the new improvements to the phone is outstanding. No more lagging or anything^^ By the way, I am still curious though, sony can support JPEG format pictures right? But what's the max resolution? Why when I enter a picture of resolution 1048*640 into the phone, the phone won't display it? Is there any cure for this?
To make this phone faster. Try to use the lastest firmwares, now it's R1F40035 (I suppose this is the name). With the last firmware it make faster, less bugs. If happens the Blue Ring Of Death, upgrade your firmware with SEUS or DAVINCI... hope I helped you!

mathie, 16 Oct 2008HEY !
The display problem is common. every k850 comes with that display prob with its first 6... morehmm.. about K850i.
I`m using K750i, it's great, because the autofokus better than K550i. Not because the camera but also the music player. K750i have MEGA BASS but K550i not have it. Too bad.
But however, since Sony Ericsson lauch this(K850i), i'm very excithing, because not just the camera it's great(5 megapixel)but also this product have better sound than N73,N82,etc.
Stupid person if they likes Nokia.
The speaker of Sony Ericsson it's quiet better than nokia N-series.
K850i not just great camera but also great walkman-phone with software walkman 3.0 --wonderfull--
Thanks you soo much for build this product.
PEOPLE! You must HAVE IT!!
(no doubt about it!) OK!!!
