I am not Fan of either SE or Nokia or any XYZ
But finally i bought K850i velvet blue (the beast) with 2GB microSD card last weekend.
Although i was keenly awaiting for this cell but reading comments n reviews here i was literally turned down.
But i rather decided to go with my instincts and it turn out to be right and I LOVE K850i.
Its really worth your money.
There is no dark pics coming. I was soo wanted to see dark image i tried every option thinking i will screw up somewhere but in no where i got dark images...
I rather took pic of dark room with zero light at 1am in night and it turn out to be rather coolest pic with zenon flash :D...
so people claiming dark image check ur sale it must be faulty.
People who are seriously looking to buy this cell pls go ahead and buy it.
Only Cons i see is
1. its really fingerprint magnet. But its even worth it after it ..hehe
2. guys with big fingers check the cell before you buy maybe your finger won't handle D pad well. (its not mistake of D pad so dont critize it. It wasnt customize to your body)
3.Slideshow doesn't work smoothly with lots of pics but have few second patience and u wont be disappointed :)
I also loaded cell with 1 GB of songs and many pics it runs faster and decent than my Nokia 7710 with 128MB card...its also easy to interface with pc and do all lot of stuff sync,charging thru pc,statistics, presentation with bluetooth(i use it), file transfer, contacts export to Excel files, etc
Only thing i wished was TV out but hey its SE they have never ending list of accessories and i found one which can be useful for it.
Comparing K850i with N95 is good battle on books,blogs..
All say N95 gives u GPS n WiFi stuff but almost everything is addon and pay price is attach to it.
And bout Wifi i got my own pc n wifi enabled laptop at home and wifi laptop at office so i got internet almost everywhere so no need for it in cell anyway i do have 3G enabled for theme download from SE sites only :d
And in end remember u r comparing its Nokia who is well known for slow performance, bugs, periodic hang. I remember it hanged on me when i was attending interview call (bas@#$)
I feel battle for best 5MP here in GSM arena is unfair where the battle is fought on by keeping everything in auto.
Now SE K850i has tons of sensible setting for each and every environment and if this is not available in N95 its not there mistake.
All settings work smoothly and in best way possible.
As i said to purposely see bad images i took image in darkest room possible to check zenon flash and believe me it came out to be pretty decent and largely lit room.
About ergonomics i feel its very impressive, u get touch key pad + D pad + individual buttons for operating camera + accerlometer. Its something new and orginal design. And moreover everything works its intended for.
About music its best that i can hear, my experience with my ex having N73M sounded very cheap music which hurts ur ears(playing loud music doesnt mean its good music phone) i had fear to experience same in K850i but to my happiness its music is just crisp, meaningful bass n treble and vocal notes and with its proprietory Megabass its best.
Only glitch i experience as speaker is at back side keeping cell on table in up right position blocks its path which significantly lowers its sound.
And hey it has slot supporting Micro SD and M2 which is very innovative.
In end i would conclude SE K850i is innovative design and something original in every possible way and best thing is at cheap price.
Maybe it must be gunnypeg model so test there new upcoming designs.
But i bet in coming models Nokia will have lot more to copy from SE other than vice-versa
This review is very genuine based on my experience only...
k850 is camera phone but it hav great music player. i compared all w new series like w910, w960. the k850 with hpm-70 headset much louder music than all se. it has megabass also

How could i use this phone as modem to online with PC? Until now i still can't use the EDGE function to online from PC.
Can anyone tell me about how to lock the camera button? Eventhough i locked the keypad.. the camera button still functioning.
If the camera on the N95 is so good, why does it take so long to take a picture?
The K850 with best pic can take nine photos in way less time, then you can delete the ones you dont want.
Xenon flash is all over LED based flashes.
As I don't want to stuff a brick in my pocket, I'll go the K850.
K850i has the BEST 5MP !! - thats that. gsmarena had a biast review .....
K850i is better then N95
i prefer K850i
The K850i's camera is the best camera phone available at this moment in time. it also has a 2.2 inch scratch proof screen, whereas the N95 isnt very rigid at all and easily breakable.
N95 never won between K850i ..K850i won
Nokia *With the Help of Carl* (cheaters) have made 3 phones N95,N82 ? why becuase they copied K850i
this fone is a very nice fone the only problem we have is that it doez not go into messages is give a error message
Still g800 isnt the best cameraphone all rounder and sure its samsung,s second 5 megapixels so they should have improved some flaws in their pervious model where SE have first 5 megapixels phone and hope they learn for their future and will build all rounder the best camera phones.
How is the sensetevity of the 2 touched buttons , cauze i saw a review of the phone 4 a man using the phone , he sometimes pressed the touch buttons 2 times 2 work !!
k850 is the best camera phone and w960 is the best smartphone on the planet nw
I bought this phone yesterday and after reading so many reviews about it i did not know what to decide but judging on my personal experience owning both a k750 nd k800 to keep the tradition going on just to get the newest k850 as i did.
Let me tell you its a fantastic phone you cannot go wrong dont listen to these Nokia fans comming on here trying to put this phone down. Theyre so dumb that SE phones are complicated for them to use so they say the worst about them.
Just a question for you Nokia fans..
If N95 is such a great phone and better cammera then k850, then why are Nokia bringing out the N82?
I thought if its a clear winner in the 5mp shoot out youd be focusing on the next best thing not bringing out a cammera phone to par with the k850.
As to everyone else if you read other websites they say how perfect this cammera is which is true..
The menu is also improved and looks pretty nice.
Its your choice.
Gsmarena is biased, i guess...
dis fone can eAAC+ n many more formats, but, they haven't mentioned it...
neway, who cares?
m gona buy dis fone neway!
