According to the Sony Ericsson website, the K850i is quad band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900), EDGE, HSDPA, 3G (UMTS 850/1900/2100). The K850c is quad band (850/900/1800/1900) and EDGE. Go check it out for yourself. (It's also the same thing for the W910i/c.
the N95 has very poor battery life agreed?? but the camera quality is excellent. i no its the 1st 5mp cam so i have nothing to caompare it against but can we stop this war or at least postpone it til the k850 is released. only when there is a phone to compare to the n95 can we truly say SE reigns supreme!!!! lmao
dis fone iz gr8, man i cnt wait 2 get mine, i woz finkin bout gettin the k810i or the sik lg prada, but dis fone jus kills both of em!!
u convinced me ur not a blind fanboy...
peace ppl, i leave u with SE
look, i don't have anything with any brand, but the way u say SE is the god brand! c'mon!
SE is a good brand, i admit this! but spirits should calm down a bit here since it isn't gsmwar.com
i'd really want to see some new designs from SE
I can't say moto sucks, because I love my MaxxV6 and the V9 was going to be one of my choices, but the only thing that had me hooked was it's touchscreen.
If I can control music just by shaking it, then I've got to say, it's only another reason for me to avoid people saying to me. "Eww another RAZR" though even if I don't get the V9, I won't be saying to other people that either.
Neither did I say SE was the best. I just said SE is trusted for their battery life, hence this SE wins in the race of the 5Mps. Also because I know that the quality of SEs are good, compared to Nokias. It's features that Nokia has for people to choose from. I won't be using GPS because I don't get lost, I have a photographic memory. I don't need WiFi because I'll be moving around alot, and Toronto here makes your pay $50 for just a few Mb, 3.5G is more secure, it being the carrier for the VideoTelephony and service for all 3.5G enabled phones (they haven't opened it up to all phones, though I've tried it on a N95, and it works, so only means quadband HSDPA enabled phones work). But still, that phone is too big for me and I don't like unsecure/sturdy constructed sliders, so the N95's out of my books.
But if you were to pair up each SE phone in the past with Nokia's contender, it would be that both would come out pretty even overall. Being that one company takes pride in it's quality of build and soon afterwards, overall quality, while the other keeps stuff features into each of their plastic phones. (My 6100 series flip and 3220 all broke from regular usage and became all dirty inbetween it's shells, though I had fun with the 3220's LEDs)
My W810 hasn't done that, or broke when I dropped it, and neither has my precious MaxxV6 when it had it's fateful and dramatic falls.
I'm looking forward to another high quality SE phone. And if the N82 doesn't fare to be big and simply put, a brick, then I'll look at putting it onto my consideration list beside the V9...
There's your 20Gb killer
Anyway, do any of the Nokia Fanboys (that's lurking around here to see if we've found out that the K850 IS truely better, beacuse of course, we haven't. That's why we're still here) know what's the address of the website that the count down of the N82 is?
To put it into words that you'll understand, I want to drool all over the moving ambient lights of the display and keypad. (It really just means I want to see what it looks like again cause I totally forgot it, being that I waved it off as just another Nokia a while ago.)
The N82 looks ok and it's specs are decent. But the thing that's going for me is the size and overall look of the phone in light and color. (price will also be a factor for me. I hear K850 goes for around 6 bills CAD)
i think sonyericsson is going to beat nokia market very fast....as i had used nokia N95....i think nokia is just making fool to the people using nokia...as i had compared N95 to sonyericsson K790i..i think the camera quality of K790i is best compare to N95..
so just imagine wat K850i will do............................................it will be best compare to nokia coming soon 7Mp camera...
I don't know what is wrong with SonyEricsson. What are they waiting for? Nokia, has already announced another N95. Are they planning to releas this when Nokia comes out with a 7MP cam?
lol, pqDk you're really insolent aren't you.
Then why don't I pick on the Nokia's 3200 series while I'm at it and say it's a piece of plastic compared to this.
We're talking about models that are within the ranges of these two phones, but I guess you'd also include the SE T68 in your view because you are just as daft. Compare the phones from Nokia in production and the phones from SE in production, battery life has never been a problem, for SE users.
Never have they had to find a wall every night before they go to sleep to make sure their phone is charged. SE made that a thing of the past, a long time ago. But then I guess Nokia hasn't copied that concept yet.
As well, everyone cares about battery life. I guess it's just you who likes to waste time going back home to charge it again after surfing the internet and listening to music at the same time. Or is it that you don't even have the lovely freedom of internet on your phone, because you haven't gotten it?
Oh well, not everyone likes to use ALL the features they get then. :/
I mean, that IS WHY people buy their phones. If you wanted a camera, then buy a camera. If you wanted to watch movies, then go buy a portable DVD player. If you wanted a GPS, get a hiking one, much better and more precise.
You're only getting the brim of the feature if you're using it on your phone and it's somewhat tedious to get so excited that the feature is on your phone when it's such a mediocre thing compared to the device it's trying to replace.
big respect to this site,but have seen more pics of this beast on other sites and a video too,directly from se site.This phone is Terrific !!it seems coming far from the future!!
Handset appearance is great. Current Software has a few bugs. Switches off and freezes. Not Happy with the 3 "Hidden" buttons just below the screen, very difficult to use especially if you have big hands.
Picture quality is excellent, in fact its much better than the N95.
Does not support half rate, instead uses AMR.
I suggest you wait a few software releases before you get this Handset.
it s the best camera phone ,nokia is trash because it sounds like amr instead of mp3 and the camera SUCK
Who needs a GPS when you can get one with handsfree wired-earphones. Why slide your screen out of the way for music buttons when you could possibly (may not be true, but I'm hoping it is) use the touchsensitive buttons (if they are, or just the rubber buttons at the bottom of the screen) for music?
And I'd take this UI over the Symbian OS any day for it having two display orientations and it's reliable enough so that it doesn't crash. If you're a wire person, then why have another 3.5 jack when you need to accept the call (if you want it to be handsfree) with the regular headset port or the handset itself?
Our radio has RDS too, which is a nice plus.
Everything the N95 has, SE has already covered in purchase-able add-ons. Only that it needs just ONE port.
dude, we've been comparing the N95 to this phone, and N95 loses in so many places, it IS funny.
But the only reason we don't flame N95, is because of obvious reasons, and because we're sorry for the N95, being trumped by such a simple creation. It's like "who'da thunkit?"
So go back to your Nokia board, and stay there with your many repeated candybars and formfactors.
Remember, the only phones to crash, are Smartphones. Lemme see, oh this ain't a smart phone, and it doesn't slide (or flip). So no matter how many times I slide across somewhere (or flip this around), atleast it won't freeze!
That and N95's battery sucks, which is the bottom line. No one wants to hurry to a wall outlet before their phonecall gets dropped because of some insignificant battery that Nokia stuffed into that brick.
I think people are coming this specific K series because of it's looks, it's 5Mp cam, and the fact that the K and W series, or SE in general, have always been VERY reliable for battery life, even under heavy usage. From my W810 making a 3 hour phone call, then 22 hours music straight (I left it on by accident), to trying my friends W850, which took around 200 pictures with flash, 2 hours of talk time and another 19 hours of music.
Those phones would survive for two days under intense usage. But the N95 would have to see the wall everyday, perhaps even twice. Now that we're coming down to newer models from Sony Ericsson, expect better and MORE competitive batteries to power these cellular flagships, which means a very big pro for this phone, above N95.
