sophie / 4Bbn-
Again, I'd like to ask, you like having no features, meaning your W850? Or you don't even like any of the features on the N95? Because those features that are absent on the W850 AND those features on the N95 are those of the ones that are on this phone, so that must mean, all you want is a telephone. So stay inside please, and don't come out again, because this is a cellphone forum, not a hardline phone forum.
Also, we've heard you the first time, 4Bbn, so stop being stupid and quit repeating yourself. We all know that the vid quality will be worse then the N95, though the phone itself is not inferior as you'd mentioned in a multitude of posts. The K850 is better because it ACTUALLY HAS a lens cover, two light sources, a better battery, and a theoretical 16Gb of memory, not to mention that this phone doesn't run on Symbian and doesn't take half a minute to start up the camera and take 5-10 seconds to take a picture.
It sure looks like you don't have any education either, talking like that. You can't back up your theory if you seem to lack the knowledge of what those people go through. In fact, they sure are smarter then you, because they're working for good money from a big company, and don't need to do alot. Now if I'm wrong and you do work, then it doesn't seem to me that you work for alot of money to even buy this phone when it comes out.
You couldn't have gotten a US price yet. But if so, it's that expensive cause it's 5MP, new UI and flash + 3 LEDs and also dual memory card type support.
Some of us are serious when we say we don't need WiFi. WiFi is capped only at a few Mbps while 3.5G is moving onto double digits. Rogers is looking at 11Mbps with their HSDPA service. GPS also is insolent because there is a map everywhere, and there is never a lack of people to ask to find out where to go. I mean, I'd rather be on path, then follow a GPS off road. There have been stories of people following GPS stupidly into trees, buildings and stuff like that. The GPS on N95, nay, on cell phones are insolent for the most part *meaning not on PDAs, just only cell phones*, and will cause you to end up up to a Km or half a mile away from where you are suppose to be.
K850 is it really worth it? I mean look at the specs, its just the same as the k800 with a better camera. Whats the point? All it would do is take up more memory. It wont make the pix any better looking on the phone, all it will do is make bigger pictures have better quality!
Agreed with both comments below, just phone the carrier your with an get your haggling mouth on. they cant match what you want got to the next until you get what you want...
Thats right, go to Phones 4 U, get a deal you never agreed to, get a phone thatr doesnt have the networks settings, get no customer service whatsoever and get nothing but hassle for the next 18 months, thats right, go to Phones 4 U and get the worst possible experiance in the history of getting phones.
Do me a favour, go see the people who actually know what they are on about and care. If you want an 02 Phone go see 02. if you want a t-mobile phone, for gods sake go see t-mobile!!! i cant remember how many times i have had people go to carphone or phones for u only to come to see me and find out we could have done the same deal for less money and a lot less hassle.
To - Token
The phone has yet had deals made for it as it is not out yet, but can defo say it will be free on £35 p/m contract. As you are on a net deal i could not even guess wat deal u could get.
For sure in by the time your contact is up the phone will be availble on the swap it deal ( Can swap it half way through the contract) Phones 4 u - Aint got nothing on me!
Ps. dont go into phones 4 u, as the are as dodgey as rolex watch made in t
K850 out Oct 8th according to O2...i phoned em begin of last week. Gonna initially cost £89 to upgrade for me but im gonna see if i can knock em down to free....or at least cheaper nearly free :)
Quit whingin bout the video people. Nokia has the features but if i had to choose between Nokias Interface and SE's... its SE every single time!
Whether the Nokia fans claims that their N95 is better in terms of features , bla bla bla, I will definitely purchase the K850... Like it or not but Sony Ericsson phones was always good phones and will remain good phones... Come quick K850... We are waiting for you...
someone tell me why this phone costs 580 USD
seems more like a 400$ one at least
release date is around begining November late october from my research
Thanks for the heads up! :-)
However, if I were to walk into CPW as a new customer, what deals would I get with this phone?
How would they differ from O2's offers?
Video recording QVGA@30fps craaaa..pp Cheap QVGA old technology! No way! Im not spending $600us for 5MP same quality as N95 but with bad video recording! Ahahaha SE made a BIG mistake!!!
I own a K800 but i wont upgrade for the K850!
some times commentator are lying, they say aint need GPS and WIFI. Actually for majority users these features are flexible for them. It not make sense while the features is minority used or useless where SE has its permit to impersonation these skins. If some 1 are not often use computer, could he say computer is useless(yea he can, probably he was living in cave)?
So be frankly, SE are good in multimedia, design, usability and especially the price, which is nokia insincerity made that even they are wearing niki....
But nokia have its own advantage. mainly professional or IT fever fans are like nokia. They didnt like it blindly, and of course they are not blind, they like its full functionality, advance with enhance features, which is SE cant do that even they are act like samurai way...
SE have the strong point to cover nokia drawback, and of course turn around nokia can cover SE weak point...
Man SE Rocks Again. I am using K790 at this time and i will surely buy this fone some day because it has all the features i need. i.e MEGA BASS eqvalizer, 3G, video calling cam, edge support and most of all 5 MP cam with real xenon flash and three video LED lights... Cool isn't it. K850 i am coming...........
The N95 won't help you find your way home, it'll just only get you to your neighbourhood, or around that area.
New Java UI, acellerometre and 3 LED light. Also, it's not that much memory. The K800i can only accept up to 2gb M2 anyway. K850 goes up to 8Gb, though don't know about MicroSD but it should be.
You've got comments everywhere, be more productive and ask your own questions.
