human cant differentiate between 262k and 16m colours..
more importantly is the quality of the pics when displayed on the computer..
Lots of you complained about the display of K850i being inferior to most of Nokia mobiles (256K VS 16M issue), but do you guys know that the human eyes cannot distinguish between 256K and 16M colors on a screen that small?
SE definitely knew this, and that's why it is still using 256K. Another reason why SE is still using 256K for display is that mobiles with 256K display will have a much improved talk and standby time as it will consume less power when compared to one using a 16M display.
N95 may be better phone in some aspects (debatable), but who wants buggy software and flimsy design? Ever wonder why when you handle a Nokia phone in a shop, they are invariably falling apart and feel 'wobbly'? It's because so many people have been handling them and it's in an indication of how your phone will be after 6 months of intensive use! I'd take the solid and reliable SE over Nokia any day!
N95 ONLY HAS 6 more functions then the K850.
The K850 has 2 MORE functions then the N95.
N95 has over the K850;
WiFi, 16M colors, built in GPS, built in 3.5mm jack, built in DB-H tv output and an infrared port.
K850 has over the N95;
Usability with other A2DP/AVRCP Sony Ericsson (phone specific) accessories which show the title, length, time left and artist of the song playing when connected and a proper lens cover, underneath the phone's faceplate, which gives it less of a chance of being tarnished or ruined in any way.
That and let's put the N73 and K800 head to head, huh? Leave those phones to their time and leave the 5MP/HSDPA goliaths of SE and Nokia to their own.
Anyone know if this phone can work as a modem by using it's 3G speed/data transfer for a laptop? and how?
I wonder why everyone is complaining about the video on this thing...QVGA is decent and if any of you know SE you should all be happy they finally upgraded past QCIF!
Besides...what you should really be demanding is 3x zoom! now THAT would be something...this is a camera phone afterall...now a camcorder phone :P if you want VGA go get a nokia haha
This is a 3.5G phone, N81 only support 3G. N95 is also a HSDPA phone; but it's hugh compare to this K850.
A smaller phone compare to the N81, this phone does have a lot of features. Most impressive is the stand-by & talk time compare to the Nokia...
Nokia, SE, Samsung competition

the price of this phone is $ 633 since they released it in Dubai for KD 180 (Kuwait Dinars) so it will be around $ 633
and for the touch screen button in the bottom of the screen, people are mixing between this model and W 960 which has a touch screen like the P1i
i hope my feedback is useful to you guys
I've had a play with a prerelease model and I'll say some pros and cons:
+ Big, clear, brilliant screen. I love it and it's great for displaying pics etc.
+ Gallery viewer is really cool, although the animation was a bit choppy but maybe that was b/c it was a test phone
+ Excellent camera and video recording
+ Navigation pad and number keys surprisingly good and easy to use
+ Fast menus
- Touch buttons are very buggy, I found myself going to the wrong menus over and over when it registers twice or not at all. This is also problematic when taking photos
- Whoever said about the navigation pad and middle button is right, pressing up does often mean the middle button gets activated, very annoying
- No infrared, yes I know its old technology etc but when I buy a phone I like to see as many connectivity options as possible, this is a big letdown and wouldnt have cost much to put in
- I prefer a manual lens cover to auto
I wont buy this one as I really hate the touch buttons. If SE can come out with a more decent, fully featured 5mp model I will get it , till then i'm sticking with the K810i.
hello i am from azeribaijan this telephone is very great because it is 5 megapixel and its very simple and i dont like somethink its this telephone mp3 very very guitely n 95 and k850i its copy we dont take any theme bye who read this text please write my email adress ok .freedom indipendint leave azeribaijan
In my humble opinion, touch sensitive buttons are not the way forward for any mobile phone. I've tried various phones with touch sensitive buttons and they always turn out to be a pain. I agree with other comments made that better video quality is expected from this type of phone, and a good quality tft screen. I'm not sure that I like the keypad on the K850. The buttons appear to be very small and would cause me problems typing text messages. The buttons on the nokia 6300 are just about right. Anything smaller that that and my big thumbs are always hitting 2 buttons at once. Come on SE sort out your buttons and your video quality.
