The D-pad and number keys are nice on this phone but the touch sensitive buttons are terrible. You press up on the D pad and very often you also activate the central touch button. That ruins a good phone for me. I'm a big SE fan but I just wish they thought the design out better of such a high end phone
i dont care about the screen color.,
i think i'll change my k800i when sony ericsson release a camero phone that can record VGA resolution video., it's a real shame that sony which is the best when making electronic devices looses to nokia which has no experties in terms on e. gadgets
I'm a fan/user of Sonyericsson phones..but,why does SE is still not using 16M colors on LCD..still 256k/262k colors!...can't they compete with that?
The K850 does not have a touch screen as such, however it does have "touch sensitive" buttons below the screen (the white dots you can see) much like the LG Chocolate phone. Another cool feature is the fact that the menu will tilt when you rotate the phone.
As you know the manufacture suggested retail price (MSRP) will not be available until Sony Ericsson actually release it to the publice. But dealers, distributor, wholesaler and importer always get their hands on them before the release date, so for that reason, the price around you hear $500-700 are set by them purposely to make a quick buck based on supply and demand situation. Most of the people assume Sony jacked up the price at first and quickly drop in value which is not true. Correct me if I'm wrong.
bottom of the screen have 2 touch screen button. I've seen it on youtube, there's no lies here, just do a research.
Its coming to middle - east end of september guys at se hv told me it would be ard 650$
the 5 mpx competition goes nokia and sony, samsung is more for the design , that s my opinion :))))))))))))))))
thanx abd.. it's cool to have an auto lens cover.. great creativity for hp.. well done SE
i have to wait till December 2007 to get this phone!????? Are you sure that is when it will be released???? i really like this phone i can't wait to get it!!!
I work for a large mobile phone company and our Sony Ericsson rep paid us a visit recently. Lucky for us, he managed to grab a K850i and a W910i for us to see before he had to take them back at the end of the day. Both of these handsets are gorgeous and will be by far the top of the table for the fourth quarter of the year going strong into 2008. My personal favourite is the K850i. The camera looks brilliant, i personally can't see the difference compared to the N95. The screen is huge on both handsets and the touch sensitive screen on the K850i is easy to use and doesn't get in the way like most touch sensitive phones. Theres so much good to say about theses two handsets, especially the K850i but i'll leave it here. Safe to say i'll be getting mine when they are released in the next 4-5 weeks near the end of October!
ib6V.. the one who said about K895... u have no idea that this is a K850 and it support 32GB memory card. throw that N97 to the bin..
To the ghoul: I put "sony ericsson k895i" into google and I got all of 2 hits...both for this site! What makes things worse is its your own posts on other forums that the engine has homed in on!!!
If you're trying to make friends, a simple "hello" normally does it:)
Anyway, to calm any fears of why SE don't throw in things like 16M displays, GPS and WiFi, its because of the amount of power they consume. I think they realise that some of their customer's require a battery that can last more than a day!
Now, as future technology and battery life progresses I'm sure they'll throw it all in, but until that stage, ya just gonna have to settle with their accessories!
One curious thing I've noticed about the k850i; why give it an automated lens cover if the camera lens (and lens cover) is already behind a protective screen? ;)
this sony is the best, camera, battery life, fuctions, reliablity. it walks all over the n95. the n95 has a 5 mp camera but only prints out at 2mp what use it that. and lasts half a day. sony knows what a phone is meant to look like and they are onto a winner.
to the the person who said the k850 is crap! i think u need to get ur facts straight, the se k850 uses the same bluetooth technology as the samsung g600 which is v2.0 with a2dp so basically it should do the same operations as the g600, just thought id point that out!
yes it does have a camera cover. it's an auto lens cover which can be found in any modern digital camera. this is the first phone ever to have a auto lens cover.
