I'm using this phone for a week. But there is a problem whit the xenon flash. It sometimes flashes, but sometimes not!
When i put it in red eye reduction, it sometimes flash one time. Sometimes 2 times. And sometimes it doesn't flash at all.
I did a master reset. But it didn't effect.
the k850i is a good all round phone with a very good camera and full of stuff to keep you happy for a long time. the only down point on it for me as a user myself was the small key pad buttons and the touch screen can be tricky at times. other wise a good choice.
