the only problem with this phone is that it easily gets scratches in the navigation keys and in the camera area. that is why you should get a silicon or plastic case for it. but this phone is really very cool! no questions asked.
hahaha...i dropped mine several times and still working perfectly ^.^...notice that at the battery cover there is one layer of protective rubber?? ^.^
It is a superb phone, I think it is a very handy,comfortable and affordable kind of a phone. It also has very clear and loud speakers. But the one bad thing about it is that it is not sterdy, it would get a crack very easily if fell down.
I just buy this phone and it is so cool fo listen music!The boutton for gaming also cool too!!!
Its been 4 months since i bought this one and i still love it every minute:) . Especially i love the d-pad which is a pleasure to use unlike the crappy joysticks seen in most se phones including the one in K750i and W800i. . .
The mobile has good features and has a good look and feel . However, it doesn't have a card slot to increase memory.
This is available with W800
But W550's look and feel is better than W800

This phone w550i i must say is a great fone. it has all the things u r looking for no doubt about that. However, last nite while i was txting, my fone suddenly shut down by itself which i had only for 3 months. i took out the battery and put it back on again but nothing happend. A friend of mine had also the same problem. she only had it for 4 months and it stopped working..i dont know exactly what's making this problem but i do hope that someone out there can tell me what i can possibly do. plz email me..if theres anyone there who can help firstname.lastname@example.org
i just bought this about 2weeek. happy with this phone. very2 good quality of sound. but still need a bit bass element. to anybody want to buy this phone you can do it so as soon as possible. u will get more then what u pay.
you cannot get that 256mb absolutely because there are several files defaultly embedded in the phone (i.e., pictures, sounds, themes, etc.). some of those embedded files cannot be deleted because they are protected by sony ericsson.
I had this phone for about 3 months and I thought it was a great phone. It is a very stlyish phone on both the exterior and when using it but it has one major let down that all Sony Ericssons have. They are too delicate! I had mine in a case in my pocket and when I took it out to look at it, the screen had broken and I was very mad and am now selling it and am getting a Durable 6680 Nokia that you can easily change the case and you can keep in your pocket without having a bulky case there too.
bought this phone a month back
now memory has reduced from 256mb to 225mb
god knows why
anyone knowing, please help
if you want high memory capacity, you should get moto slvr L7 coz it has microSD (transflash) slot which makes the phone's memory expandable up to 1GB. but moto downloads such as themes, etc. are very few. i always prefer sony ericsson coz of many download sources. w550i is a walkman phone. the media player is organized. you can play music with the walkman application minimized, or even without turning on your phone-related functions (such as calls, SMS, etc.), just like a phone in flight mode.
k600 has 3G, but it has low memory capacity...w550i has 256mb of memory storage...the white screen is not a very big issue...if you find your phone having the firmware R4AB004, then you must update it...and after that, you need not to worry anymore...R4AB004 is the only firmware which gives white screen problem...please do not be affected too much by the white screen issue...other phones also have problems and those are worse than that of w550...
hi.. am planning to get this phone next week and about this white screen thing, is it still a present problem even in the w550i? or is it just in the w550? because im getting the w550i, and i really hope i dont encounter any white screen of death or whatever..:P
i really like SE W810 theme.....very different style!(refer to SE W810 review and look at the theme style)
is that possible to use that theme in this phone????
OMG.i got da phone of death.Can anyone help me to avoid this white screen of death thingy? I love this phone very much.Moreover my dad didn't alloud me 2 buy a new phone until next 2 years.HELP ME!!!
angela the w550 is way better than 3230. 3230 has all this phone can offer and there is a symbian os 7.0 in it and of course memory card but the phone hangs sometimes and has worst sound quality in speaker and earphones maybe the SW upgrade corrected it now. another is that w550 screen is more sharp and authentic than 3230 3230 has larger but colors are far different 262k and 65k. camera are almost same but se is a bit sharper. another is that 3230 is a bit slugglish in opening programs. SE have 3d engine in java so faster games in 3d are experienced. but both phones are good to use if you feel any of these two are good it's up to you
