the onlii problems i had with the fone was it freezes which can get veryy annoying and aslo the touch buttons skrew up i had to get it fixed
but evrything esle was pretty good!!!
SE has made this same phone at least 50 times and some people still get all excited about it haha, its always the same features and design wit SE.
Do Not Get This Phone! I have sony ericssons since they brought out the first colour screen one (T68i) back in 2002 and have always stuck with them since as i felt that they gave me everything I need. And then I got this phone now dont get me wrong i like the look and the features it just the software but I dont know one single person now that hasn't had to send this phone back as it freezes, crashes, etc and I know about 8 people that did have this phone and ive had to send mine back to O2 now for the 2nd time as because it frooze again. I said I didnt want another of these phones they offered 4 other options which were no where near as good as what i've been used to or what I was wanting and in the end had to go with the samsung soul. Sony ericsson you've let me down. :-(
*The sound quality is 100% better I had a w850i and the call sound sucked!!!
*the camera is very good for a phone but sux in the dark unless your real close...I really like the qualtiy in the light ande even in the dark its better then every other phone but not as good as a reg camera.
*The speaker is almost as loud as the w850i if not the same loudness..it is very good!!!
*The cpu seems a little slow if your adding lots of videos (i have 4 gigs of video that i converted) and even with out the videos it is a little laggy
***note*** this is my second k850i and the first one had touch button problems and this one had the BROD...the phone is AWESOME but it does have all the issues everyone complains about...personally if you have the money wait for the C905 I think its available in Oct and it has way more features and a 8 megapix camera and its a slider!!! Good luck
You CAN fix the blue ring of death BROD with the SE update!!! I just did it my keypad would light up all white and the blue ring would light up and nothing else. I tried taking out the batt and everthing...this is how I fixed it.
*take out batt. sim and memcard
*put batt back in but do not turn phone on
*open SE update (you can download it from sonnyericcson.com)
*plug phone into usb while holding c button
*keep holding the c button
*pick your phone k850i (keep holding c as long as you can)
*it may tell you to unplug and plug phone in (take out batt reinsert and then plug usb in and HOLD C!!!)
*it'll say are you having problems with your reinstall software
I just kept holding C and I did the process 3 times holding C as long as I could (my hand would cramp) and eventually my comp recognized my phone and I still repeated the process 2 more times.
I reinserted the sim and mem card crossed my fingers and the phone started up!!! It will take a lot longer to start up this time...that is normal!!!
At first it seemed like the phone was just stuck on the intro screen...I just put the phone in camera mode and pushed the camera button and then it said please wait...then wait and your there!!!! NO MORE BLUR RING OF DEATH!!!! KEEP TRYING IT WILL WORK I SWEAR

Even though they look awkward and uncomfortable to use, they really easy and you never hit another button by accident.
Some games are lagging.Why is that? Its a new phone and games shouldn`t lag.I`ve instal the new Chuck Noris game and it lags too much.DISAPPOINT.Hope there will be update fixing the slow Java or something.I don`t know where is the problem.Nfs Pro street lags too.

did i also add i live on an unmade road which throws up crap when people drive on it.

Tsepz, 26 Aug 2008I understand you want this phone badly,you are even saving up for it, i love my K850, its a re... moreNo, it is not what I want to hear that matters, it is people being honest that matters. You can tell when people are, and when people are just on here to run there mouth. Of the people I have found that 2/3's love the phone. The other 1/3 do not, 1/2 of those do not like the phone for good reason, the rest just dont take the time to learn how to use the phone properly, dislike the design, or something, and dislike it.
I just get ticked off at people that can't seem to get it in there head that it is not the end of the world because this phone is not like theirs, or has everything THEY want on a phone. I dont care for smart phones, I have internet at home, and have better things to do while I am not at home. I have no problem with Sony's jacks, they work just fine for me. I am looking for a phone that works for ME, not everybody else.I am not a clone, I dont need everything that other people need. I am just looking for a good phone that takes good pics, and is durable. Most people on here have a 'mines better than yours' complex, fact of the matter is I Dont Care if it does! More power to you. I just want a phone that works for me.
N5700xm, 27 Aug 2008@dani he he he your k850i is dead? For 2 months of usage, he he he. Nokia 5700xm rulezK850i died for 1 week and came back alive again....
K850i rulez lol
I don't know from where to start...
First, bravo!!for the 5 mipx camera...one of the first phones to do that (like n95)
being a Nokia fan,never seen such good design and excilent color mix (green&black)
BUT!!! I don't like the button design...looks uncomfortable to use
And i certanly dont like Sony-s idea of useing 256.000 color screen when its rival (n95) has 16milion...I thnik that phone with 5 mipx camera should have max posible colors for its full potnetial...
REMEMBER!!those two things took my desigion in n95 favor :)
i am getting this phone but have some questions
1-whats the sound quality with hpm-70 compared to w850 and w910?
2-camera quality after latest software?
3-loudspeaker volume compared to w850 and ui speed??
Where can i get the app Mobyday or whatever, the one that displays appointments, and other calender entries? Im using the built-in web browser of my K850 hence diff ip.
