Forgot to add....
The Keypad is awful to use, surely the 1st thing you have to get right with a keypad is that it must be effective and pleasant to use - these are not, they're the worst I;ve seen for a long time.
How can they go from producing something so well built as the K800 to this is beyond me.
My K850 is on it's way back - thank god for the UK distance selling Regulations.
This phone looks great - on the web in picturs, but when you get it home it feels cheap and plasticky, cheaply made and ugly. When you start using it you instantly see that although large the screen is duller than say the K800 whites are off-white. Then you start to see how slow the GUI functions, that's even before you start playing an mp3 and the thing gets slower.
Take a pic and the resulting on screen image actually has artifacting, now I know this wont be replicated once exported but still it's not nice to see.
The lights on the keys don't light up evenly (I guess to allow for the extra set on the top for camera use) adding to it's cheapness in the looks department.
The rocker control in the centre is not intuative to use at all and you will constantly accidentally activate the touch screen buttons.
Finally, within seconds of taking this out of the box the phone looks filthy with smears and marks from your (yes they were clean) hands. The material they have used for the entire case is a cheap black plastic that just looks awful.
For a flagship product the K850 will only be liked by fanboys who are desperate for the latest product. I personally use nothing but SE phones so I was very disappointed by this.
I've xpected sumthng more.....disappointed keypads needs a huge improvement as well as camera quality nd guys plz gro up dont compare it wid n95,95 is a masterpiece even the quality of n73 is much better than k850 overall
you should say the k850 battery life is better then n95, not the overall.
after seen all the comments, frequently the k850 user mention is the battery life and camera. until this stage, i still unable to figure out what's other extended function is enhance due to compare to k810i.
although the camera is improve, still, i dont have any excuse to trade in my k810 because on my view, the k810 image quality is as good as k850i, or i can say even more ease to use the camera function...
well, i can ensure people who using this mobile will certainly get bored after few weeks.
i'm sure it's already in Greenhills
because it's already available in Baguio
the price Php23,800.00...
much cheaper than in north american market.
i ordered already...
Nokia N95 - Jack of all trades, master of none.
I've had the N95 and returned it because of all the features it has, it's still slow and still has bad battery life.
Not to mention the amount of DOA's it's had.
Now lets just compare it with the new N95 with the K850.
hey guys ive been using the phone for almost more dan a week now...its really gud..amazing battery life..excellent camera(but u got to know the right way to take pics)..nice touch buttons..keypad is not that great(so difficult to type sms)...all in all im very satisfied...give it a go will take little while to adjust to the keypad...
..is there sumthin rong wit da cam..2b really honest,i think da N95 takes bettr fotos than da K850i..fo tht mattr da K800i n da K810i takes even bettr fotos than da K850i..wit da flash,da fotos fo da K850i turns out 2b dark,but remains ok without da flash..whts up wit tht..and anothr thing is da OS/software/firmware wateva it is..i think its slo compared 2 da previous SE models,the animations r not smooth n the functions seem 2 take mo tym than da previous SE models..da OS fo da K850i is jus lyk da 1 used fo da SE W900i..m really sorry 2 say this but da K850i wasnt up2 my xpectations..honestly i xpectd more..disappointd,im really happy wit my SE T650i n Nokia N95
The Truth, you still haven't explained why the K850i is so good! Megabass and new Walkman software...so? You have no experience with the K850i! I can at least say something about it because I have used the K series phones before!
magic, you are a weirdo. Just because the N95 has a bad battery life, the K850i is MUCH better than the N95? You can't say that the K850i is a LITTLE less good feature-wise than the N95.
I think the k850 is way better then the N95, ok the specifications are a little less, but i don't like to charge my phone every day and that's what you have to do with you'r n95. I was on vacation with our company (phone shops) and i could take pics with my k810 and my friend was there with a flat battery...
I am gettin the K850I on tuesday cant wait!! It is now available on TMOBILE in the UK. On contract.... Also available on 02. Other networks it is not available until end of november.
K850i has MEGABASS and Walkman 3.0 Music Player and it also comes with Great Earphones !
all that surely makes a GREAT Music Phone !
even with the Cyber-shot logo
millie, the K850i is not too big or "manly" as you say, for a girl. I would expect the G800 to be bigger anyway.
aj, it depends on what you want: music, camera or both music and camera, which is W900i, K850i and N73 ME respectively.
Great just because the K850i has megabass? No way! I'm sure that because K850i is in Sony Ericsson's K series, it will not perform well when it comes to music.
Better than N95? No way! The reason is self explanatory. Why not go see the specifications of both of these phones?
Its already out in greenhills. Store in front of the escalator going up. Mine is already 2 days old. I traded my w850i for this baby. Great phone. I bought it @ 24K in total. Im tempted to buy agad.
Omg, the buttons hurt my thumbs!
The touch sensitve buttons are ok to use (atleast they are comfortable) they are more responsive than the stupid samsung ones!
The camera speed is FAST! But its not saving my pictures for some reason. Both my phone and memory card are empty after taking a few pics. (have i done something wrong?)
i went to vodafone shop just now and the staff said it will be available next week.
it was cheap, only $10 per month on 49cap plan.
anyone has any idea about when is the release date for Three Network in Australia?
