LoadWB, 19 Nov 2009I have had my K850i for about four months now. My first unit purchased from a dealer had issu... moreI forgot to mention (aside from some of the type-os, sorry,) the keypad. At first I thought this new style of keypad would be difficult to use, but it mostly is not. In fact, I can type text messages and emails with ease. The directional pad is a little awkward at times, but still effective. It is, however, horrible to games. Pac-Man and shoot-em-up games are pretty much a no-go without much practice and patience. And there are times when I push UP and accidentally trigger the middle softkey.
Again, mostly usable, with only minor, non-critical annoyances here. I do, however, miss the BACK button which existed on my K790a. The END button operates like holding the BACK button, just DO NOT USE IT DURING A CALL! I have more than once accidentally ended a call trying to return from email, contacts, or a menu by pressing END. Whoops!
I have had my K850i for about four months now. My first unit purchased from a dealer had issues which caused it to run un-Godly slowly, including non-responsiveness in the touch-sensitive areas of the screen. I got it replaced and I have had no hardware problems with the unit.
What I do have problems with is the sluggishness and how crash-prone it is. I run a lot of Java application and do a lot of Bluetooth. I have found times when the Bluetooth stack apparently freezes or (thinking in terms of a service) restarts itself, evident by all Bluetooth devices going offline and suddenly reconnecting. Java applications seem to run pretty well, if you only do one or two at a time. But the media player causes the whole thing to crawl.
There are time when the phone will hang when making a phone call. Usually right after starting the call, it freezes on the number and does not indicate that it is dialing. The call continues, but all functions are locked out, which is a major pain when you have to enter numbers to answer a voice prompt.
And do not expect to have a 16GB M2 filled with media. Anytime the phone reboots, especially from a crash, or you insert the card, the phone scans the card for media. This process will take longer depending upon the amount of media you have, and will render your phone essentially unusable during the scan. It appears to maintain an internal media database, as there have been times when the bloody thing refused to recognize a new song I sent via Bluetooth or copied directly over using the portable media player function. Even reinserting the card would not work on such an occasion, I had to remove, scan, insert, and scan again.
Video playback, MP4 H.264 506kbps and AAC stereo 96kbps, is inconsistent in performance. Sometimes it is spot on, and other times it will be choppy and/or the video will be out of sync with the audio.
It has problems rendering album art in MP3 or M4A files generated by some programs, but I can correct that by retagging them using MP3Tag. Corrupt GIFs can cause the phone to crash. WTF!
And if you run IMAP email with push enabled, your woes will increase many times over.
The camera has problems with the stabilizer. In fact, mine seems to take picture more blurry with the stabilizer disabled!
Now, on to the good experiences. The Bluetooth is EXCEPTIONALLY useful (when it works properly, of course.) No locks on what it can or cannot do, and I have it paired with about 16 devices varying from laptops, computers, Palms, other phones, a GPS, an earpiece, and a plethora of A2DP devices. It can handle them all simultaneously, though it prefers 2.0 devices over 1.x. One annoyance is it does not switch well between A2DP devices, but that is non-critical.
Internet over Bluetooth is VERY snappy, even when on a call (3G only, most EDGE systems do not allow simultaneous usage.) The email client is functional and usable. Certificate management is simple and flexible, unlike many phones (iPhone,) though I would like to see S/MIME support. The camera is sharp and clear, and has a fantastic flash, though it is clear the optics could be better. The USB functionality is excellent, providing Internet via an emulated NDIS interface, a portable media device interface, and OBEX interface all at the same time in phone mode. Mass media storage requires a reboot and falling out of phone mode, another annoyance.
Another small annoyance is the inability to put the phone in (or out) of flight mode without a reboot, and the lack of a reboot option in the shutdown menu.
Calls are stable and reliable, well as much as AT&T can me. Data is the same, and FAST. I get upwards of 2Mb, and with the Bluetooth I have speed-tested at close to the 3Mb limit. I also like how each Java application can have its own Internet connection -- one can use the WAP interface while another goes directly to the Internet (ISP or PDA plan.)
Anyway, it is difficult to say I hate this phone, and difficult to say I love it. It is kinda like my feet: they are great for getting me around, and I would have a difficult time without them, but sometimes they hurt or even manage to get in the way of themselves.
Since Sony Ericsson has given the word that there will be no more firmware updates, I have decided that I will learn how to mod and patch my phone, the first mod will be a new camera driver, possibly the CyberShot XPerience.
