Nice to look at...the screen is nice and large. Now for the annoyances...the ringtone volume changes at will, the hinge unit is fragile, it doesn't hang up properly when closed, it chews it's battery, and just recently has taken to resetting itself at will...I've had it for 9 months and it's the most fragile phone I've had in 5 years.
The speaker is good but no as good as you say.I think that the speaker of my old k700 was a bit louder, but anyway,the speaker of v800 is good,so,no complains.
As for the rest of your report,I agree,This phone has everything and it's also very very posh
If you're willing to buy one of these Sony Ericsson V800 phones, this review might give you some ideas about what you will get.
I've been using the phone for the last 8 months and I'm totaly happy about the phone. One of the most positive points about the phone is its speakers volume. The speakers volume is adjustable between 1 and 8. I've been using it on vol. 3 and it's loud enough to hear even if you're in a busy road. I can set any MP3 or WMA as a ringtone or alarm. The momory sick has a nice position as you won't need to swich the phone off to take it out. The scren is amazing. The 1.3 megapixels camera makes the phone a real digital camera. Note that If you get the phone with contract like Vodafone, they've block MP3s so that you have the only option of using thier service to download and pay. The solution is simple. There is a software called "DRM packager" which allows you to use MP3s as ringtone and alarm. I've tried and it works perfect.
I've had Nokia 6610, 8210, 5210, 6600, Samsung E710, Sharp GX10, GX30, Sony Ericsson P900 and Samsung D500 so far and I've never felt so comfotable as I do with V800.
Thanks Sony Ericsson for this great design.
Don't forget that this phone has been the best of the year...
I was wondering if anyone knows how to update my sony ericsson v800 to the new z800 software,please e-mail me if you cab firstname.lastname@example.org
How can a put a mp3 as a ringtone?
i just got one! it´s amazing what this phone can do, i´m very please with him, mp3 are super, sound it´s amazing, fotos are with great quality, nokia listen and learn...
Yes, go to settings>calls>open to answer and choose "on"
i usually wear my v800 in a belt pouch.
my problem is that anytime i answer my calls i accidently hit the side buttons and it goes straight to my voice mail.
is there anything i can do to answer my calls by just flipping it open?
I'm trying to find the"Super Mario"(java) for my mobile but nothing.Do you have any idea where I can find it?
Ok,you are right,there is some delay.I don't know what happens in other phones(but in Sharp's there is more delay).At list I'm happy coz it is faster than my old K700.
GRANT:There is only a MP3/MP4/3gp media player,no WMV.Also there are hundreds of programs in the web that help you to convert from wmv to 3gp(I use the "Xilisoft video converter")If you want some videos try www.ZoeZoZo.it
The rest of the phone it's OK !
Love it !
JB: You are right,there's no problem with the mp3 thing but this part of the software sucks :(
And the delay that I talked about is in the main menu of pictures (menu->my items->pictures (and I think the problem it's from the memory card,a Sony 32mb))
Are there any video files that it cant take?
Does it support wmv?
GRANT: Yes,it is possible and easy to transfer mp3 files or any other file to memory stick.Connect your phone with your PC using the USB cable.Windows will recognize the memory stick as an external hard disc(look at "my computer" menu in your PC).Then by using the "paste" and "copy" way you will move to your memory stick all the data you want.
I'm not sure if this works with Windows 98 but certainly it is possible with newer Windows editions.
SOBO: There is no software problem with the MP3.This is just the policy of Vodafone and it is common in every Vodafone live device that you can not use Mp3 files as ringtones unless they are DRM protected.
Also, there is no serious delay in the menu when you store pictures.You'd better try some other megapixel phones to see what delay means(in v800 it takes only 3-4 seconds to store a 1.3 megapixel photo).
According to my mind this phone is very good.
It's a very good phone,but the software have`s some problems that are anoing,like one with the mp3,or with the delay in menu at the pictures storing site,althout the phone is very good !
Verrrrry beautiful :X
I love v800
Yes it does.
I was just about to post a similar question. I also have the phone, but now i can transfer music from my pc to the phone memory, but i cant seem to transfer it to the memory stick, any help?i know its possible.
