Dani, 05 Aug 2008I Swear down, Nokia is ripping people off in Europe.. SE offers the Best Deals and More Val... moreThat's interesting. My previous N95 and my new N82 both came all the goodies. I wonder if the seller is ripping you off. I Buy mine unlocked branded to no one. I know if the phone is branded, usually the company has something to do with taking away goodies and charging the cutomer extra for the extras. In the USA, we are behind in technology. So the phone companies do not carry the better phones. The highest megapixel phones our companies carry are 3. And when we buy a branded phone they usually come with the basics. Is the N82 you are talking about with no extras, branded to a company?
I purchased 2 of them, one for me and one for my brother. Both very excited for the 5MP camera. The software was glitchy, and it froze a lot. But after a few firmware upgrades, it appeared to be fixed.
Within 3 months, my brothers phone lost control of the camera button, and about 2 months later, I lost use of all of the keys, rendering the phone unusable.
Because I purchased the phone prior to its canadian launch, Sony Canada will not warranty the phone.
The 800/810 series were built much better then the 850. and I would strongly vote against it.

till then, oops. one of the lame product sony ericsson come up with.
and yes i upgraded software, did not solve the problems. lag all the time, camera flash wayy too bright, sometime pictures way too white. speaker stopped to work at all. set up alarm a few times, and it did not go off. video in mp4 or AAC filesdo not play with sound, and if plays than it video goes behind with voice.
would love to keep thi phone, though still wayting for X1, i hope X1 would be what it worth it ;)

I have had the W600, W810, W710 and the W580, All have been wonderful phones, and have taken there share of abuse and still work like a charm.

I too had my share of bad experiences with this phone...If you guys don't believe me, then go ahead and experience it for yourselves!
i have my phone since january, and notice the following prob:
1. when i took close-up pictures, the result is too bright that yu cannot even see the image.
2. my phone is shutting down and return to the default theme. my observation is because of the cover of the battery. it seems like it is loose. but do you think this is the main reason for shutting down?
3. i just upgraded my firmware version to R1FA035 080527. how this resolve the previous bugs?
is there any cam setting i should use to capture good photo. sometimes i missed to capture the beautiful event because of the poor picture result.
to anyone please... whats the latest firmware version available? were all the bugs from the previous version had resolved???
sony ericssons used to be amazing but the new phones( beyond the w810i) are terrible. they are so unreliable. I have had mine for 9 months now it has stopped working 7 times and had to be replaced 3 times. These phones are an absolute joke. DO NOT BUY ONE YOU WILL BE DISSAPOINTED.
Allan, 04 Aug 2008First of all the u600 was blurry and terrible!
Second i just took a video indoors with my n95... moreIt was on You Tube, you can check it out. The others I seen there was about the same also. Samsung was terrible.
Yes, I do need to quit smoking, but I dont think I will ever buy a Nokia. Sony has me spoiled on there phones.
Direwolf_65, 04 Aug 2008I have to disagree with you on that. Check these links.

Second i just took a video indoors with my n95 and moved around the room, then played it back and it wasn't jumpy! How do i even know that was an n95 in the link you gave?
Allan, 04 Aug 200815 fps with vga is still better then 30 with qvga!I have to disagree with you on that. Check these links.
A sony C902;
A nokia N95;
The Nokia is jumpy, when you move it. The Sony is not near as bad.
eddie, 04 Aug 2008Here in the US, we get the N82 with earphones, 2gig memory card, USB cable, and TV connections.Just goes to show you the Nokia is taking advantage of people.

Allan, 04 Aug 2008Well, i have free wi fi at my workplace and it's also in a coffee shop I'm at once in a while ... moreNow dont tell me that you use Wi-Fi at work for your own personal use....is that why you need it on a phone?
Shame on you!

None that I care to spend time, nor buy anything from them, for Wi-Fi. The only thing 'strange is people like you whos life 'depends' on Wi-Fi on a small phone. I live in a small country town, that gets over run by touriest every year. So the town leaders has seen fit to make this town into a trap for them.
