Must say its a fantanstic phone when stable like mine. SE were on the right track when making this phone, all its missing is wifi, an os, and 3.5mm jack it would have bn perfect with the above, and it needs sum work here and there on the camera and it would be excellent, all in all a nice device. Dani what firmware were you on when it died?

News flash: SE is now offering a complete reflash of firmware via SEUS.
in Layman's term: Whenever you update your firmware, you will lose all personal data but a new firmware (not patched) will be downloaded to your phone.

i dont know which camera will be better. i think it might be the c905 but i dont know. i only think that because the lens is bigger on the c905. anyway we'll see.

Is it that we can use either MicroSD or M2? Coz the free one is M2 card right, but microSD is cheaper..
Hello guys? wazz up?
I'm been very busy these days (actually still busy right now) but I just came to see what's going on.
So, a lot of SE fans here have been converted.
What a surprise!
nick, 26 Jul 2008yeah lets leave the camera argument.

Dani , 26 Jul 2008Oh right i see, anyway Welcome to the K850i Club
i still have mine!yeah lets leave the camera argument.
im still waiting for that n95 replacement.
contract runs out feb 09 so i got time
Network didnt have N82 or Touch Dual so i settled for a K850,the pics it takes are amazing but N82 and N95 pics do look beta, its just nice to have sumthn different. :-) i never hated SE,just disappointd at sum of their decisions and lack of support for sum phones.

but only slightly
i have samples of photos taken from a N95 8GB
and Both K850i look the same!
anyway old argument
Dani , 26 Jul 2008Expect Tsepz to give a positive review on it
cant believe him, he bangs on about Nokia all... morejust read another review:
"We've already conducted a thorough comparative analysis of cameras integrated into (Sony Ericsson K850i & Nokia N95 and Sony Ericsson K850i & Samsung G600 & Nokia N95) and it came clear that the winner is N95 as long as we arean't speaking of macro"
oh the next line
"It's a real shame that the creator of the famed Cyber-shot series and the best-selling K750i and K790i/K800i models in particular failed to keep their high standards. The N95 now has its price stabilized and thus looks way more attractive to the casual buyer."
and since tpsez doesnt have another 5MPX cam to compare it with i dno what he'll make of it.
im telling you now, the N95 is better.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970WHAT THE HELL!!!!!
what happend to N82 !?!?!
i thought you Hated SE!, you talked so bad about them and now you own one........
what made you do that?!?!?
Guess who is now the proud owner of a brand spanking new K850!? :-D yep so now got the best of both worlds, N81 for my smartphone and music needs and K850 for my camera and and other imaging needs.
i hav had the k850 4 7 months and i really lke it, but i did hve some problems wiv it. However I didn't take it bak and now i wud recomend it 'cus of it's brilliant camera, media player and softwear.
i think the camera is better on the k810, but i haven't actually bought 1 but i know people who have had it and there pics were good but not as gd as some of the ones u can take on k850. i realy love this phone so when i upgrade i will get another SE but C905, although ppl keep saying inov8 is better.
Hello everyone. I'm from Bangladesh. I bought my K850i Quicksilver 16 days back with 1GB M2 micro (traded the 512 that came with the phone)after my W610i was declared as unrepairable after it fell in a puddle of dirty water. I like the phone very much specially the accelerometer flash modalities, the innovative touchscreen feeling although not true touchscreen, relatively big display, almost a walkman 3 player, and the uncommon D pad which makes people comprehensive at first about its usability but after trying it everyone is surprised about the fact that it's easily usable!
At first i had restart problems but after updating, it's running smoothly. I have mixed feeling about the camera. Sometimes it takes great pics while at other times they r below par. I feel that flash 'always on' option should have been there as sometimes when in auto flash mode the flash doesn't fire when the picture would have been much better if it had fired. Also flash is needed when taking pic with bright background.
From reading some user opinions I see that many people complain about the touch screen not always responding. One has to understand that the screen is not a touch screen. To activate the options one has to touch one of the tiny white dots. Only touching the screen will not work. Thus a downward swipe of the tip of the fingers is the way to go.
Now my problem!!!
From day 1 I've been experiencing lags ie when i listen to songs that r on the memory card there r pauses for 1-2 seconds, sometimes 2-3 times while playing a single song!!! which is very irritating! Moreover voice recording stops automatically in less than 2 minutes. When u playback the recording ends in repeatation of the last word like as if there was a scratch on an LP. Anyone having these problems? Is it the M2 micro that's faulty? Does anyone have any problems with microSDs? I might buy a microSD as they r cheaper.
Thanks, waiting for useful solutions to my problems.
