@pink_beachbum, The texting is great, the buttons are raised so no probs what so ever. The 4 way directional pad is easy as well not hard at all. Overall functionality is great. I know because I am an owner. Thanx,eddie
A well known fact!
'Good stuff are always hard to get used to'
K850i is Good so it takes time to get used to.
were as N95 is just plain and boring and eas LOL
@pink_beachbum21. This phone is not good for text messaging because the buttons are to small as was reported by julie and brynn. Also as you know the cursor surronds the 2 and 5 and isn't separate from the keypad!
i'm planning on buying this phone coz i know that the features of this phone is really fantastic. but i'm kinda bothered w/ the keypads and also the cursor. i've been a nokia phone user ever since... uhmmm... the birth of mobile phones! hehehehehe... so this is really the first time that i'm going to buy a phone that is not nokia... whoa! the keypads of this phone is kinda small and it looks like plastic, and the location of the cursor. i rerally wanna buy this phone but i'm a bit worried bout the keypads and the cursor.
Steve tilley wrote an article in the toronto sun newspaper under under gadgets. The article was called "waiting for iphone not easy". For those who are waiting for rogers to offer the iphone 2 phones are now available! I quote steve tilley "Interestingly, Rogers just launched two new exclusive phones-the LG Vu and the N95 8GB-that are potential iPhone competitors in their own right." end of quote. Personally i don't really like the iPhone,but the touchscreen is very good. Anyways, my point is that Rogers offers the k850 and it wasn't even mentioned in the toronto sun article as a phone for people who are tired of waiting for the iphone! It just goes to show that the k850 isn't anything special at all!!!
errr, more like SE Phones are the FASTEST AROUND!
Yeah it ONLY has 3x ..hah!
SE just is the Best, SE Rulessss
the nokia n93i is the only nokia handset with optical zoom. it has 3x optical zoom.
N-Series are just not at the level of SE Phones yet
theyv a long way to go on the Basics of a Phone, not just Multimedia and masses of Featurs.
this is what N-Series has to Improve on:
Battery Life needs a big improvement
User-friendlyness needs improving
Design and Weight needs doing
Improvement on Software (less slowing down lol)
Over Performance needs to be improved
.........big list huh?
Nokia is going down slowly, they just dont get it anymore! and never have..
ever SE came, Nokia has been S*it
SE 4 LYF
i wont admit it. the nseries are absolute quality. it just does so many things. and i love the camera.
why cant u just see sony erricson are just out to make money. (well they all are)
the lens is the most important part of a camera and sony erricson give you some cheap one all the old phones use. at least nokia are gracious enough to give a lens which is used in common mid-range digi cameras.
Look yeah, if the operator said that to me
they didnt even reccomend them damn Nokia N-Series N95 N95 8GB N82 to me.
they also said they have had loads of complaints with the N82 and N95 8GB, N95 clients.
so basically they didnt want to me to get them....and im thankful for that
i hate N-Series phones anyway
(N70 was the worst phone ever!)
N-Series phones all have serious problems!
even after firmwares upgrades blah blah blah...
just admit it nick!
I like the design and the battery life of this phone but I prefer to use a phone that has many features.. I wish K850 has a TV...Its cool to have a TV on a phone cause I'm not always at home I cannot watch my favorite show.. My friend has a mobile phone and her phone rocks!!! And has a Dual Sim both active but no Wifi but it is fine with me I can live with that...
I just updated my fone's firmware from R1CA37 western euro TO R1EA37 using update service. I note that although few minor improvements in animations but overall i regret this update my earlier firmware was more stable than this new one and sound quality of media player was far more better when i had previous firmware of R1CA37. kindly tell me how can i go back to my earlier firmware version is there any way i can restore my fone to earlier firmware. i checked master reset but couldnt succeded, plz any one help me how can i install back R1CA37
but i'd still prefer sony ericsson as compared to nokia. Not just this unit. this unit sucks!
