the phone looks ok, however without bluetooth, not many of them are being sold for the price they are retailing at. thumbs down for this one
I have bought this phone a week ago and i think this phone is good enough with mp3s and aac support in this mobile phone. it comes with portable jacks handfree, 128mb, and charger. the memory card is support up to 1gb which is big. and the phone can insert 1 to 60 songs with 128mb memory card. :)))))
Without Bluetooth Its like a Reliance low cost phone.
Please ADD Bluetooth ASAP
W200 can use 1Gb micro cards with no slow-down issues. it could also support 2Gb but afaik this is a low-end phone thus slowdowns would be noticeable but not to iritating :)
HPM-65(W710 earphone),HPM-70(standard walkman earphone),HPM-82(earphone with a play-pause remote),HPM-85(DJ style headphone) and HPM-75(upgrade of HPM-70) are all compatible to this phone.. no issues afterall unless you use HBH-DS970 stereo bluetooth headset lol!
i agree tft/tfd is better than ubc and you're ranking is correct, but not all the time:) take note that some tft lcds are "not transflective" thus not allowing display to be readable directly on the sun whilst UBC can do anytime(thanks to SE technology) for example the M600/K510 display is not so legible against the sun while Z530 can supress the sunlight better than those could do.
can i use se w810i's earphone to this handphone? n the sound quality is still same if i use those earphone??tq..
can anyone tell me whats the maximum size of the memory card i can put in this phone
i think this phone could be improved if it had bluetooth as well as infred write plz
The display quality and the standard used depends upon the Price and company's overall market strategy and also other aspects r also involved.
The best quality is TFT (Thin Film Transistor) but it consumes lot more battery comparing to UBC or STN. Another standard is TFD (Thin Film Diode) which consumes less battery but quality just as TFT. This fone w200i uses UBC (ultra Bright color) which is good and consumes less battery than TFT but quality is inferior to TFT. (but acceptable in normal use)
Ranking 1.TFT 2.TFD 3.UBC 3.STN 4.CSTN.
u can use w200i's headfones wid nokia 5300. it has standard 2.5 mm jack but i think that u would feel not much difference in sound quality because the actual mp3 file processing occur inside the fone, thus u can't get the sound quality of w200i with nokia 5300.
Excellent! Good sound. The photos of 0.3mp are not good. Menu of not dumb the main screen. It wanted the W800i, but its price is 3x more…
w200i wins in all cases it has awsome sound quility.its got some really cool thems and stuff good phone really worth for the money u pay. only darwback is the picture quility. other that than w200i rules
I think this phone is more better than other nokia phone.... ive bought this phone and the sound is more clear. But, the camera is small..
hey everyone ...its a gr8 phone ...ya would also like to inform u people that if u want to know or share anything abt this phone just join in at orkut w200i community ...its gr8 fun here ....and all queries are solved and also all suggestions are welcomed
Nokia 5200 is the best competitor to W200, heres some comparison i can make:
5300 vs W200:
>>slider - candybar (w200 wins for it is safer than having moving parts, though 5200 slider is good)
>>bit bulky - more compact (who will win in your heart? lol)
>>Nokia Xpress music player - walkman v1.0 (both are good)
>>STN LCD - UBC LCD(i can comment that UBC is better as far as my expreince tells it)
>>Nokia Lithium battery - SE Li-polymer (SE battery is always better...honestly lol)
>>VGA camera - VGA camera (both are the same)
>>Edge - no edge (if you need edge, then 5200 wins)
>>MicroSD - MS Micro M2 (both have reached up to 4Gb maximum atm)
>>Bluetooth - No BT (deal breakers for those who wants flexible wireless connectivity, useless for those who wants stereo bluetooth--both have no A2DP)
>>simple UI S40 3rd Edition - Advanced SE GUI A100 (use W200's installed flash themes and you won't get rid of the it's cool menu layout - best GUI on a phone yet)
>> Both have excellent sound quality, but if only you know how to calibrate the manual eq, otherwise W200 wins in a wide margin, thanks to Megabass)
>> W200 has better earphones (HPM-62 Bass Reflex) if you loved the earcaps on HPM-70 then you can detach the earphones from the original headset and use the earcap phones of HPM-70).
can someone correct me if i'm wrong,but as far as my experience tells me, UBC(ultra bright color) is "better" than STN/CSTN type LCDs thanks to it's improved brightness and sunlight reliability(as the UBC meaning implies), thus improving the image quality when viewed on the screen. i both compared K300 and K310 screens and i'm pretty sure to say K310 has better brightness and contrast, and as i have said, it's more sunlight-proof than K300s. on the other hand TFT/TFD is an active type of LCD that can render picture as sharp and as vibrant as a CRT computer monitor though just like UBC,UFB,STN/CSTN it suffers from washed-out colors when viewed at non standard viewing angles(less than or greater than 90 degrees). comparing TFT to UBC, UBC is weaker, but it doesn't tell us that the picture quality is bad, it's just not as natural looking as TFT/TFD can do:)
hope this helps:)
