i got this phone, and honestly i like it alot. If u guys are gonna bitch about video recording or all that other stuff, then get a camcorder. IT IS A PHONE, its purpose to make calls, and having a mp3 player on it is a big plus. but thats all a phone should really have. plus it looks attractive too. If u guys complain about how slow its moving, or how stuff isnt animated, then get a computer not a phone. It has good battery life, a very very good mp3 player. And u know what the camera isnt even that bad, its pretty good for a 1.3. But if that is a problem for you people. then u dont want a phone. get a camera
i got w380 yesterday....this hw it is
very nice screen
awesome sound wen u listen to music
v.nice music controls
no video recording but it plays them
speaker volume is a bit low
Nice phone from se, im waiting for argos to sell it for 59.99 then id buy it lol
There is no video recording on this phone.
Also the UI isn't animated (the icons don't 'pulse' and there's no smooth scrolling) which I think is a first for Walkmans. Even the W200 did that...what a shame...
this phone has no video option.im shocked
i think sonyericsson is much better
hey guys i just bought this fone, it doesnt seem to have video? can anyone else confirm this??
As with all Sony ericsson you need to empty the battary to 0 and rechage it for three to four times and it will run you a week without recharging
awesome i wanna buy dis fone but i have no money but its beautiful
He man I own a W910i but I'm surely amazed b it but also by this new W380i wich I think shares alot of design similarities with the W380i. As for the functions it is certainly going to be the best phone in it's class.
some features I'm sure of it has:
walkman player 2.0
-very powerfull processor like all SE's
-So it will easily manage 3D games
-Allot of flash themes check this out and drool :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHRle1bzEzg&feature=related
-512 Mb M2 card in standard pack
-Very good screen like W710's
- 1.3 megapxl cam with video support
All in all I think we might just have a winner here!
And yes sure a 1.3 mpxl camera might sound poor but this phone will go around for 149 us dollars, and crushes nearly all it's competition such as the cheaper nokia folders and samsung flipphones it even makes the V3i look like garbage W300i was pretty popular and I think W380i will continue doing that, I really like everyones positive reaction to this phone on Gsmarena.
Yo go and get it guess cause it's one of the most decent products out there for this price :)
I bought this phone on Sunday but do not know why ....i am losing battery veruy fast on stand by mode ..
Charge the phone for whole night...went to work before lunch without any calls recieved only on stand by my phone shut off because no battery...
I left home with full sign of battery but...
is the phone defective? as i have tried two different batteries already
I love the way this phone is built it's so stylish, good design made by SE
This phone is awsome, its beautiful, and I want it, when I get some money I'll buy it on eBay, because here in Brazil, it will cost more than US$500 for sure... That's sad...
I keep on about that in other forums about mp count...They rave on about the ?? fone has only 3 megapixel and this one has 5 mp,,well for one most people never even print their pictures out, and second,in the past we only printed out 6x4 inch prints and two mp is good enuf and i dont know anyone using poster size prints that would account for using such high megapixel...
The other point i make is that its the lenses and alogorithm that also are paramount in the picture quality..If a 10 megapixel fone was releaes in uk tommorow they would buy just because of showing off it would be a really bad picture with noise and dark..The only good fone is the sharp 903 with 3.2 mp its got five glass lenses and a ccd chip and copes well and can still hold its own today.
good avinerson. that is a good theory. u r absolutely right.
fine one more thing... i have a doubt about this phone. can i send data via bluetooth to other enabled phones.
why do people alwis talk about things they don't know i will never know
the more you incres the megapixel count on a camera with a sensor of this size the more you will actualy degrade the image (less light will come in and so on)
for example on a dslr with 1/100 @ f4 you will actualy get aprox double he light when you compare to a bridge (p&s)camera (the fuji 6500 for ex)
and becouse it hase to deal with an image of this size it will be sloweer and ....
once and for all understand that megapixels are important only if you print verry large or if you crop
