mate, i havent tried outdoor pix @ nite yet.
n also, havent tried self-potrait yet.
i was jus testin da flash n d pix come out too dark indoors.
i think d f**kin flash is a bit late.
but, dats d only prob.
rest evrythng works fine, cept d shake thng 2 c d nxt pic in d gallery.
I hope da dealer replaces dis 1 n gives me a good 1.
Dont you dare say k850i is the worst phone. It is the only phone to have xenon flash!
this is tha kind of imbecile nonsense we get from immatured gradeschoolers...
can u imagine what kind of mobile ud have if SE were the only phone manufacturer in this side of sanity-ville..???
they cant even come up with the fix for my 037 crappp...
and MP...if we are unlucky... i guess we're not alone on this...thaz a fact...a good number of k850i ownerz are really yanking about the woes of this crappp... good thing is... u got snipezz here who'd gladly smirk at the shortcomingz of this unit and love it to bits...hehehe
SE rules!!!...Go Sony Ericsson!!! and New generation for Sony Ericsson!!!
that's throwin the towel this early bro...
cant blame u though...like what i said...we've been shortchanged by SE here...
goodluck with ur choices..never about brand...iz the unit...
b'sides..iz ur money..iz ur phone..let it be ur choice...dont apologize for makin it...
mate, maybe U n I r unlucky!
coz Sniper Supra has got a nice piece.
n also, as i said earlier, i played wit ma friend's k850i n also one at KL sony shop.
both were good 1s.
i tested flash n da auto-rotate, dey were wrkin fine.
neway, hope da dealer gives me a betr unit now, or m surely buyin g800 or n82.
thanks for the reply bro ..appreciate it...
btw - tell MP there's still hope for his unit..hehehe...and huhuhu....i felt vindicated with MPs sudden slurge of mind-boggling recantation... not a very happy sight though...
anywayz...fulz in this area are still at it..quit it monkz, it aint helping any ..b'sides..ur fightin like gradeschool sissies!!! and im talkin about u rock,dani and nick..although nick has got my respect on this for being so tough as to take on u all...but wahtever...this has gotta stop...
and to all yah so blindly worshipping k850i, u gotta understand the reason why im shittttin all over this place is becoz i felt shortchanged by SE, i didnt got the kind of product they all heralded about with its cam,audio,etc...
i got 037 FW here, and itz all crappiiee..
but...main thing is..i still got the unit...and im stickin by it...unlike some wide mouthed, loud ego troll who after owning the unit is all about ready to give it up after his first day... c'mon!!!!!
waht happened to ur staunch and firm k850i-esque spirit??!!!
why the sudden blow up to surrender...
tolja all before...
better listen to those who actually owned the unit rather than those who happily cry out wolf coz they dont own a herd of sheep..
pathetic turn of event...lousy crappp!!!
@ Sniper Supra, Dani, r.0.c.k., Lonestar
Finally, got dis fone yest.
I must say dis 1s a total beauty
gr8 music player
awesum battery life
THE BEST CAMERA in a fone i've ever used!
love those flash themes
good voice clarity ovr d fone
got a 2gb card free!!!
LED lights for night recording, too good
Spkr is a bit low, maybe dis is coz I owned a 3250 b4!
Flash not in Sync, pix @ nite come out dark.
Wen m in d gallery, if i shake d fone, i still can't seem 2 go 2 d nxt pic (as shown on a youtube video).
I gues m not doin sumthng wich is required.
@ Sniper Supra
plz help me.
firmware is 037.
i m goin 2 da dealer again 2 ask 4 another piece.
and, if d other 1 still has d same prob, unfortunately, i will hav 2 buy d samsung g800 or n82 (Sorry Folks).
I beg to disagree ^_^ IMHO
mine is also 037. Mine is unbranded as well. If yours is unbranded you have to stick with it coz the latest software is only for the branded ones.
News!News! W910 has its new FW, R1EA030, so I guess the K850i FW, R1EA031 will come sooner.
You might as well wait for it. ^_^
The k850 look's horrible and the button's on the keypad are so small you need a magnifying glass just to see them. The picture on the arena here look's better, but when you see it in front of you it look's like a piece of crap!!
any news on how to fix this distorted bass crap out of this 037 upgrade?!!
my k850i with its 4gb microSDHC is useless, got over 600 mp3 i cant listen to with this crapppiiee bass...
have already done re flash thrice of the same FW and still is the same crapppp....
037 - still the same unstable and unreliable cam, bass sound distorted....
dont forget he uses the same point over and over and over and over again and it gets very boring!
do this phone has an usb port in its package? do this phone has a Push to Talk feature?
I got mine from 02 & its a 038 software version which was put on the phone on the 7/12/07 according to the currant software version in the phone.
Can nyone tell me what’s the latest firmware of k850i…?? Mine is R1CA037. Is this in present or it’s been updated…??? Cause its Update service software would not let me upgrade to the newest version, stating that I had the most updated firmware. Is it? Thnx.
Oh yeah, just in case you can ask to test the phone, you can see it's firmware under the update service.
Go to menu, select settings then select update service. Then go to software version.
I bought mine on a small dealer. I retained my one year warranty at the same time i saved a lot compared to buying directly from an SE shop.
And also an advantage on buying from smalltime dealers is you could actually test the phone before buying it.
Isn't it right?
@ Sniper Supra
thnx 4 dat mate.
but, wat do i tell d ppl frm whom i m buyin?
wat if dey dun hav ne idea bout da firmware?
coz, me aint buyin frm an authorised sony showroom.it proves 2 b very xpensiv!
neway, lookin fwd 2 share my thoughts bout dis fone...
n yeah, fingers crossed!
i hope i dun get a faulty 1.
actually there's another colour - the white one.
Personally I've wanted the blue one but ended up with the green one.
But I suggest you go for the firmware first before the colour.
R1CA029 - lots of bugs, best cam quality they say
R1CA037 - fixed some bugs but photo quality declined (mine has this version)
R1DA038/039 - most stable but drains more battery than before
R1EA031 - no news yet so be careful with this one.
Good luck mate. Hope you don't end up with a faulty one.
