I charged my mobile for about 2 hrs & it showed as fully charged. I did not even touch my mobile 4 hrs but after that i checked my battery status, 15% of battery charge drained out. How can i maintain my battery charge? Please any one help me.......
I love this phone allot, this is the 3rd time the firmware cash dam!. tried to install the firmware again using SE software update form the pc, it only will prompt yr software is up to date and will end there. The older versions of software update, i am able to install the firmware even it prompts "u have a new version installed". i even complain to SE yet there is no reply from them. As a SE fan im truly disappointed.
my k850 just use 1 year plus then now having problem with the screen. It will turn off automatically.
I am not sure if I just got lucky with my K850 but I have had it for 8 months now and so far its still doing very well. I've said it in a past post here that after the firmware upgrade I had for it after my encounter with the B.R.O.D., my K850 is operating beautifully. I even sometimes abuse it, using its mp3 player, radio, 3G almost excessively and I am glad to say it hasn't given up on me yet. My estimate ratio of hanging per month/s is 1:3-5. I think my unit is one of the earlier ones but I don't know if that has any connection to its great performance whatsoever. I also love its solid feel in my hand.

There are even people who find lemons buying the high end phones like the omnia, n97, iphone 3gs. but i still stand on my conviction that my k850 works fine even after a year. I mainly use it now for multimedia and shooting photos because I already have my omnia i900 as my primary phone.
I read there is a fair amount of people damning the K850, I have had a workmate whos K850 started to fail a while back, she ended up switching handsets but I have the K850, have used it for well over a year and I have no problems what so ever. Its not the fastest of things but neither is it a snail, its a phone that takes good pictures and plays music well and copes with the applications/internet and email that I need to have a useful gadget as well as a phone.

I had this phone for just over a year. It broke three times whilst on warranty. Now it broke the fourth time and I do not think it is worth repairing.
Software and screen are recurring issues.
It will often reset itself over and over.
I liked it when it worked but the amount of sofware and hardware problems with it is unacceptable.
DO NOT BUY IT
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2009Must be the batteries. I am running 100% brightness with moderate usage and it lasts me 5-6 daysyeah, that's what i thought as well. i was thinking of purchasing another battery for my phone but do you think i should charge it initially before actually using it? is a battery slightly charged when you buy it? thanks for your reply.

SE warranty wont fix my phone for free even thow it's still valid.....what a rip off
got a problem w/ my unit. my sister said that i should do "initial charging" for the phone upon purhcase before actually using it otherwise battery life becomes greatly affected. did not heed her advice since the phone retailer told me that i should drain the batt charge first before charging it for around 2-3 hrs. that's what i did. but now battery life lasts only for about 2-3 days even when on standby. i've tried switching to gsm mode only and lowering the screen's brightness for, like, 60% but it's still the same. just wondering if should have listened to my sister. is she right or there's just something wrong w/ my phone? i'd appreciate any reply. good day.

pls don't buy this phone.. buy N82 instead.. this phone is very slow..
Again, it's all about the user and not the equipment. 1 year and still perfect for me. Camera is one of the best there is. Sound is comparable to the walkman series. Yes it could use WiFi, but I totally understand that this phone is reaching out to a totally different market. BTW, I also have the Samsung Omnia i900, and there is a reason why I am not ditching my K850i...it's simply because it's a good phone and I still have a use for it.
