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
pimpim both phones have different features if you need 3g which is now available in php get it but if you want a stunning memory and sounds go for this one. it's a hard decision maybe of which of these will be better coz both phones targeted different markets: multimedia and 3g both phones have the same camera worse than s700i ccd camera ( S700 has the best 1.3mp camera in se)
hey,i think u should buy dis SE W550i.I've own it.It is great.The sound is better than W800i .Moreover this phone memory is better than K600.
umm...guyz which do you think is better, the k600 or this w550i?I was planning on changing my phone to w550.pls reply...
this is a great cell.great sound,good pic quality,and great functions.sexy,beautiful cell,sexy keypad.i like its orange coulour.my brothers also love it before it they are nokia,s fan but know they are of SE.Goodgoing SE.and GOOD LUCK for next time
i am going to buy w55oi but was reading thru ur openions and found "white scree" almost every wehre but dont quite no how it is can someone elaborate this for me pls...thx
oh white screen? never appeared till now....got as soon as it came out and till now...its doing fine...guess u guys out there having this problem is pretty unlucky...
an ugly phone with an ugly keypad...worth the money? i think not..but i must say sounds pretty good...hehehheneh jk phone great at looks and its nice bout almost eveything EXCEPT: 1.lacks expansion memory 2. the keypad is bloody ugly.... should have made it with a s700 keypad...wat a pity...
people...if u are worried about white screen of death...u shouldnt...it rarely happens and is a MINOR problem by just holding the on button for some time.....and it RARELY happens...and btw...other phones no matter what model have their own defects...u should consider that before thinkin about this monor problem... =P
actually...when u connect the phone to the pc...u should off ur phone b4 u plug in to avoid the restarting of the phone to avoid screenie of death ^.^...
i am using w550i since december last year. i have experienced 2 white screen flashes (i just brought my phone to a service shop for reinstallation of firmware). but still i do not want to lose this phone 'coz it's really cool. just use it wisely. do not install too many java apps and if possible do not connect it to your PC. here in the philippines, many are using w550i and i can see that they are enjoying the phone. it has the features of an expensive, high-class phone at a price of a middle-class phone.
the cover for se w550 are changeable. it comes with a free cover color when you buy the phone. i think all it's different. if you are lucky, you might get the silver cover...but mine, i got the dark blue. the original color was of course orange.
well, I've been owning se w550 for almost three months already and so far...this phone has never let me down. i dont have any problems using the bluetooth. it's good. and i've dropped a few times...and it's still good. each user will have different opinion when using this phone due to the fact that the phone model is being manifacture in different countries. some might think the phone is good while some does not think so. but for me, i'm happy enough with it...doesnt have any problems...i'm from malaysia, and se phones are manufactured from china.
Hi guys, I need some advice here. I'm gonna be buying a new phone in the next couple of days, and I can't decide between the Nokia 3230 and the SE W550i. They're both loaded with features, and available at almost the same price here (Bombay). I read the comments and noticed a couple of complaints regarding the SE ...stuff like some bluetooth trouble, and the white screen issue.. So does anyone have any opinion to offer? People tell me Nokia's more reliable and stuff, but I'm rather in lust with the SE! :) Also, are changeable color covers an option with it? Coz I'm not too keen on the orange, and I haven't seen it available around here in any other color.
The bad thing bout SONY ERRICKSON phones is that the cameras are grainy though it has 1.3 MEGPIXEL. Nokia phones are far better in terms of camera technology compared to SE. The camera isn't grainy and not that movey when you use it...
