i think its funny how everyones having so many problems with their k850s.
and i like the way everyone quotes from 1 cnet website which rates the k850, but every other site on the internet says the n95 is better, even without a xenon flash.
lalalala, when will you lot learn.
just read between the lines. sony ericsson want profit so they give you
-the cheapest crappiest lens ever
-embarrasing video quality
yet print "cybershot" next to it, and you're all falling at their feet
@sniper or anyone particularly from asia please...
whats the latest released of K850i software version???
i've had this phone for a week now and honestly, i was kind of dismayed of the fact that my nokia 5610 captures better images than this 5mp.
on my k850i, i find the pics kinda pale and dull. the color depth is unsatisfying. also, the screen is OFF-WHITE to YELLOWISH. i dunno if it's the new "natural" color for SE phones or it's just the k850i. you can compare the screen to ANY SE phones or Nokia and you'll notice that the screen is really YELLOWISH.
the xenon flash really really is a big plus to this phone. but i noticed that when you use the flash and take pics of yourself or with a group, your background will turn dark.
(what if you want to take pics on a beautiful background? it wouldn't be possible not unless you turn off the flash!)
the menu is kinda laggy!!!!
all-in-all, i rate my k850i 7 stars out of 10.
The following comments are made by Cnet UK website on K850...
"The Sony Ericsson K850i's camera is very close to being the best camera we have ever seen on a phone and is worthy of adulation"
K850 is really an interesting camera phone to have with tremendous Cybershot v2.0 features!!!
nick, 06 Jun 2008i just installed 98 on my laptop and its the most awesome os evertry Ubuntu Linux dude ...:)
Loved my K750i Just a well balanced phone.. The 850i tho..mm I don't think the camera is good.Im sure it confuses itself when metering a shot, pics without flash are great tho.
The Keys are not ergonomically designed at least not for the average hand. The Touch screen is a pain you either miss the button or get a double press! :(
Must say its a solidly built phone tho high quality finishes. Good screen even in sunlight. Lacks wifi, I think thats important these days even though it does have HSDPA up2
Like the phone , but if i was given a try before you buy option , I don't think i would
im gonna put my old 6233 and K850i at contest with Video Recording.
QVGA vs VGA
240x320 vs 640x480
its gonna be a Quality match, it doesnt matter on the resolution. its all about the Quality of Video-ing.
K850i is NOT Crap, its just Perfect in terms of Quality all round.
we have to realise that not everybody here is privately educated.
obviously 320x240 is a quarter
double would be (2x320)x240
or 320 x (2x240)
k850 is crap
Sony, 07 Jun 2008Actually, the resolution is just 2 x higher, not 4 times. N95 Resolution is 640 x 480 which is... moreactually 4 is correct.
320(times 2) by 240 (times 2) = 640x480
or in other words 320x240 is a quarter of 640x480 (qvga is a quarter of vga)
or in other words, if you put a 320x240 image beneath another 320x240 image and another beside the second 320x240 and another 320x240 image beside the first one, (4 all in all) you make 640x480.
omar, 07 Jun 2008plz could any body tell me how can i copy and paste text in k850 ??? plzzzzzzzzzz answer ..copy and paste are two easy tasks.
when you are in a message just press options
select mark and copy
a black thick cursor will appear
press mark then scroll along the desired words
then press copy.
then go back to creating a message then again go to options then select copy and paste.
then select paste.
That was very simple.

nick, 30 May 2008well dani.. how can the video be better quality. the quality is measuredby its resolution a... moreActually, the resolution is just 2 x higher, not 4 times. N95 Resolution is 640 x 480 which is 2 x sony resolution which is 320 x 240.
