o yes its a bit annoying but hey do nokia have that kind of feature?and do samsung does have that?hehehe..W200i is one of the best budget..i mean not 1..its the best budget music phone around if your looking for good music you will be blown out..and about the ubc and tft screen issue thats rubbish if you can't see the screen while on the sun cover it with your hand like a hat!its that easy!
Good phone only just got it 59.00 Euro with 512mb card(Ireland) so good price loads of features.
One thing that gets me on these phones that, although it must be technical possible, there are no proper missed call/missed SMS message notification in other words a briefly flashing LCD display or keypad flash can hardly run down the battery that much and if it does then they should put an option in the menu for consumer to turn the feature on and off.
I mean as it stands if you have a missed call you just get a silly little arrow at the top of the LCD display which isn't even lit making it very easy not to see missed calls if a distance away from the phone.
Even when you are charging the phone I am sure they could dimly light the LCD Display or flash on the keypad to show that battery is being charged but they don't. Its annoying I think.
Iam Planning to buy this phone...Pls anyone tell me how it is worthable ???
Oops I seem to have confused UBC and UFB. What I meant is Sony Ericsson's UFB is not bright and is like CSTN with more animations. While Samsung's UBC is very bright.
UBC display is no good. It's not bright like TFT. Samsung's UBC was bright and cost-effective. Someone described UFB as CSTN with more animations and I agree. UFB is very tough for me to read in sunlight.
BUT...I don't mind the UFB screen because of Sony Ericsson's amazing (and I mean amazing) user-interface. It feels like I am on a computer. The joystick makes me feel like i am using a mouse :)
Reyr Philippines - Thank you veryy much :D
But one thing is confusing me, it has UBC display right... so it should give bad performance under bright light :-/
@ Sanjana Wahid
the display is nice and bright it doesn't fade in the sun
about the battery life it can last for two days upon maximum usage playing games while listening to mp3 watching southpark episodes and texting..upon the messaging and phonebook it almost has 30 mb of internal memory and can store hundreds..
and the fun part of this phone is its flash themes its a standout among other affordable music phones around!its a music player and a show off to your friends!
I got a few questions...
(a) How is the Display... Does it fade in the sun?
(b) What is the memory capacity of phonebook and SMS?
(c) How long is the battery life?
this phone is small but deadly..it has amazing features and infact sony ericsson merely did not tell that it has dedicated music keys which is on the volume control of the phone..just press the increase volume for 2 secs and it will go to the next and the other one on the previous..you can even press and change tracks even the phones keypad is locked!!no hassle!for me its one of the coolest handsets ever its sold for 4500 here in the philippines..the battery life is awesome it really competes and wins on express music brands i the really stylish mono blue and i love it!
Its the best mobile...also the sound quality is very nice..the only missing thing is the bluetooth facility...the picture quality is too bad..
