thats why using bluetooth connection for transfering data or hearing music is more advisable.
And I never had any problem like data loss or something like drain the battery.
I put my cellphone in my backpack to avoid thieving act.And found no problem at all like that.
Still able to receive or make a call.
Cellphone batt is OK,still last for 3 days.
Oh yea,I also use SE bluetooth stereo headset.
nick, 15 Jun 2008wow sniper you sure have attitude this evening, have a biscuit mate.
sorry i didnt just pic... moreRubbish?maybe you are just LUCKY when you had your phone.But for one month,Cmon, thats not even a test for durability or endurance.(Are you spamming this section just because you had the experience for your one month problemless cellphone? and claim your nokia is more better cellphone than SonyEricsson?you got to be joking)
truely,Its so unnatural if someone told you that nokia is far from problem.
And you said your nokia is Never restart or hung,eh?
Ok,Are you sure you already turn on your phone?
believe me,i've earn much money from my job to taking picture since I use this k850.I still get my picturial-moment while I'm taking pictures.Never miss any moment that I wish.
The things I never had when I was using CarlZeiss n95 or it 8giga.(I was using both of them)

but at some points its not advisable.
the tendency of this socket being overused is relatively high....its like saying this socket will be use 2times more when you use it for transferring data via usb cable and mp3 via earphone.

nick, 16 Jun 2008stereo bluetooth headphones cannot match the quality of wired ones because data is always lost... morealso its a far bigger drain on the battery.(i agree)
if i had a god, it would be a 3.5mm headphone jack.(OA)
sniper supra, 12 Jun 2008No. don't do it yet. where is your games installed, on phone or card? and what software ... moreThe games are in phone memory.cause i've formatted the memory card several times.and i don't khow the version of the software,all i can tell u that the software was updated 3/4 days ago.

I think since k790i,SE modified their chargers.So you can plug your earphone while its charging.
Anyway use bluetooth like SE HBH DS 970.Its 10m range with no string attach.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I dont think you know Maxim magz,right!?.
Its a male magazine.The market is for all people who love hot chicks and incredible lifestyle.
Even if you are gay,I think you should know what is Maxim.
I work for Maxim and I take picture about strange thing,hot chicks,amazing cars or anything incredible with my k850i.Thats why I cant tolerate any malfunction thing in my work.Especialy camera.like Dani's said K850i camera respons faster than N95.Trust me.Try it by your self.
And all girls or even a gay want to see their face in Maxim.Everybody knows Maxim.It so strange you dont know about this.
Strange coment you have mate.Just curious,How old are you?
And why there is people talking about 3,5mm jack like talking disaster.
You can buy a expensive phone but you cant buy any 3,5mm jack?
Go buy find HPM-70 from SE.its quite cheap.
wow dani thanks for that really conclusive test, it really opened up my eyes.
settings is in tools > settings, but with symbian you decide what icons are in the menu, so ive got rid of tools and just repalced it with settings. easy? yes.
the camera on the n95 does open quicker, update the firmware dani.
also the n95 is more natural, the k850 is unnaturally dull and cannot cope with 'white', quite a fundimental colour if you ask me
also i just realised you cant listen to music on this phone whilst it is charging ahahahah
Tigre, 15 Jun 2008Thank You for kind respons.I appreciate it.

maxim? whoa! i'l be glad if you give me the latest edition ^_^
i hope you dont lose your head in this forum :)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970LOL WTF!??? the dude works for MAXIM mag. do you even know what that is??? i guess READING aint one of your strong points, eh!?? LMAO!
and whats all this jazz abt having a 3.5mm jack!??? sure its 'nice' to have one but did they really have to put it on the SIDE!!!??? LOL! leave it up to nokia to make things a bit 'harder' for you n95 users! and y'all seem to LOVE IT!!!!! LOL!
the n95 is FAR fr. 'perfect'. heck, it cant even do the most BASIC of functions like CHARGE off of the USB port ffs!
ALL s.e.'s can do that.
You are right. But also added in:
"Does dis fone have GPS?"
"What is GPS?"
"How do i use this phones GPS?"
"What MP camera does it have?"
"Can i get it in pink?"
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I disagree.
This is the most probable cases you'll see here:
"Can somebody help me about..."
"How can I.... please help..."
"Guyz, help me buy a phone..."
^_^ but yes, of course - it is still very boring.
What a load of...biscuits LOL
what the hell...
iv just put my K850i up against a N95 8GB ...........FOR REAL people FOR REAL..
2 hours worth of testing!! iv just done..soo i hope my Testing will bring PEACE in here..
this test was without being biast, none of these 2 phones are perfect..we all know that.
here goes..my lists of important stuff, and testing details
Camera test, K850i camera pictures looked More Natural!! and Xenon Flash another advantage and LED for Video recording
Music Player and Music Playback and Speed
Gallery Layout and Speed
Menu and Speed
Design and Size
User-friendlyness of UI and Speed
Camera Interface Speed and Ease of Use
Sound Quality and Sound Output was Better
Speed remains FAST even with 5-6 applications
LED for Video Recording was a Advantage
Xenon Flash came in Handy
Automatic Camera Cover with QUICK speed Yes Yes YES!!!!
No Wi-Fi, GPS (if you people say so i shall i put them as drawbacks)
Weird Keypad and D-Pad Layout
Touuchscreen buttons takes time to get used to..
N95 8GB Won:
VGA Video was very good
N95 8GB drawbacks:
Slow Camera UI
Music Player was abit slow
Menu Speed was Fast..even with applications open
Hard to Use Menu, it took me about 5 mins to find 'settings' ..why Nokia why!
No Camera Cover(big drawback)
Slider was getting Loose after 3 months of use(typical Nokia slider)
felt 'Cheap' becuase of the feel of plastic...which again is typical N-Series
Slow speed when going into Contacts and phonebook
and Gallery surfing
Video Recording in Dark places, dont even think about it!! ..
right so Yes K850i lost only becuase it doesnt have Wi-Fi, GPS etc etc..and Weird Keypad D-Pad design..
Otherwise K850i is VERY PERFECT..very close to Perfection ..but then you know the drawbacks soo..just live with it.
N95 8GB lacks becuase it has a WEIRD Slider and Button Layout! ..hard to use to be honest..
and the slider was loose abit only after 3 months use...it felt as if it was going to fall off. and its size was BIG compared to K850i but then 3.5mm jack doesnt really pass an advantage..since K850i has its on the Headset Wire, no fuss at all..(hope its stops people fussing now) and N95 8GB screen size was GOOD 2.8 Inches! really good. but then K850i's Display looked Natural and Bright! .
Music Playback..K850i won since it has better Sound Quality and Output and better Earphones supplied..and even through the Loudspeaker it was as LOUD as N95 8GB's stereo speakers. which wad Good
and Menu UI, i prefer K850i for alot reasons, it was easier to know were things are, e.g. Bluetooth all i need was click the Activity Menu and it was there.
N95 8GB i had to go through 3 menus just to activate the bluetooth..hmmmmm took its time..wasted lol
K850i was Goood becuase its smaller in Size and easier with Pockets..
N95 8GB bulged out alot..didnt really like that.
Camera UI on K850i was FASTER, and the Automatic Camera Cover opened fast then N95 8GB without a Camera cover, which was a surprise! ..
K850i was faster to change settings and quicker at taking pictures..then N95 8GB
this is the big one..
i took the same picture same view same angle same everything.
the result was..N95 8GB's picture looked abit Natural but it was Blurred and Dead Pixels were in..(thanks to no camera cover!)
K850i had Xenon Flash + Camera Cover + LED for video recording + FAST UI so it was all there and goood..
thats what i call a TRUE CAMERA PHONE the K850i
K850i won again in MEDIA, and Gallery
i opened both N95 8GB's Gallery and K850i's MEDIA button at the same time.
K850i was much FASTER and easier to use.
K850i was good at Multitasking to, yeah its Java but it felt like Symbian on the N95 8GB
one click of a button got you to..a Multitasking menu
K850i did it faster and easier...
right well iv done the testing and all the hard work..
its up you people who agree with me or who dont (you know who you are)
i like K850i, some like N-Series.
K850i wins Overall..between any of them.
might not have the feautures like N-Series, but im talking 'Overall' here..thats like Telephony, Speed, Multimedia, Camera, Music Player and Playback - K850i WINS!
K850i has won Overall..people will just have to accept it.
well i hope you lot enjoyed and agree with my review..
Been one Good 2 hours that test!, dayum.
Thank you and Cheers!
wow sniper you sure have attitude this evening, have a biscuit mate.
sorry i didnt just pick a handset that doesnt do what i want.
and tigre, my nokia has never ever ever ever ever ever ever just hung spontaneously, i would have to be doing some heavy multitasking. since v.21 it hasnt hung in months. so thats rubbish.
Tigre, 15 Jun 2008No mean to harsh.But thats true.
This is K850i forum,it supposed to discuss and share all pro... moreActually there were a couple or more people here doing things like answering peoples questions and sharing points of view or even giving directions and instructions about the K850i and k850i alone.
But eventually, "they" came along...
No mean to harsh.But thats true.
This is K850i forum,it supposed to discuss and share all problems and try to help someones problem that related to k850.
Its ok to comparing others brand.
But for insulting this brand in its forum,thats crazy enough.
All of my family is using Sony Ericsson.
Not fanatics thing,but those thing was born by experience.Me and my family experience this thing.
Sorry to say,but based on me and my family experience,I dont think Nokia was built for heavyduty-multitasking performance.They will hang ,even when you just use musicplayer for background,sending sms and receiving sms at one time.
We never find such a thing in SonyEricsson phone.Thats why we choose SE for almost 3years
I dont say SE phone have no problem at all,but the problem that appear in SE was not as anoying as nokia problem have.
I use my k850 as a modem for at least 8 hours yesterday,theres nothing problem at all.But in this morning my friend,using his 8gigaN95as a modem for 3hours for the first time,he got his phone unable to receive a signal and the LCD turns blank.So he send the phone to service center for at least 4 day.
Thats happen this morning.
You dont buy stuff just for send it to service center immediately right?But thats happen in,sorry,nokia phone.And thats based on my experience.
I dont say ALL nokia phone is sucks,but most of them have the same problem again and again.
I like Nokia 6233, it has less problem than any others Nokia.But still i have and love k850 more.
I say no bullsh*t here, but everything I said is based on me and my family experience.Thanks.
