believe me, for a multimedia phone like this w550i, the battery capacity is very, very good.
i don't know about the recording time..
but the standby time (for everyday usage - 1 hour of making calls, 2-3 hours of mp3 listening, 1 hours of messaging..) well i can reach 2-3 days. another person i read in a forum can reach 4-5 days of standby time..
Hopefully I will be getting this phone soon, so just some last minute questions :-}
How long will it record a video? My current phone will manage a max of 4mins.
What's the "real" standby time of the battery?
Thx in advance ;-]
IMHO, with all the great features, it's the cheapest in the market... That's great value.
Here in the Philippines, I've seen several people in the gym using walkman phones, some of them w550i.
In the malls, you could see a few wearing there w550i's like necklaces... I real headturner...
The earphones are fantastic, but be careful, once you put them you won't be able to hear the outside environment LITERALLY!!!
I seldom use my ipod, I only use my ipod whenever I work out in the gym, I don't want dumbells or plates crush my cellphone...
As a matter of fact, a update my playlist in my phone more frequently than in my ipod...
Yes, you could also record and play videos over the phone, IMHO can also be at par with s700i.
I even downloaded more games, so its better than NGAGE IMHO...
Guys if you want more mp3's in your phone, I suggest you compress the bit rate, so it can save up to 100 songs... comparable to ipod shuffle huh...
hi i need a help can any one tell me the quality of videos, and does this phone plays videos downloaded or sent from other mobile.
I don't think there's a bluetooth stereo headset available for this phone because this phone doesn't support the bluetooth A2DP (Audio Advance Distribution Profile) like the Motorola E680i. Such requirement is needed in order to use a bluetooth stereo headset.
Wow man I can't believe this thing almost replace your iPod. But yes it makes sense because the earphone supplied with this phone is better than the iPod's. I love the bass.
i've been using this phone for 1month.
still looking for bluetooth stereo headset that we can listen to mp3 wireless.
have anyone tried using bluetooth headset to listen to mp3? pls let me know..
don wan wires hanging around... thank you.
I have has this phone for one month, and it almost replaced my ipod.
It has really good battery life. Nice game mode, esp. the Worms 3D, great sound both using the earphones or the loudspeakers, head turner design and a lot more.
But having been a previous s700i owner, i got disappointed with the camera, although both of them have 1.3 megapix cam, s700i is better.
Another thing I like about w550i is that you can change covers from orange to white (I hope more styles will be available in the near future.)
256 memory is ok...
I'll give you a run down of what is inside my phone
I have about 10 games, a couple of pictures (since I frequently transfer in on the PC), one video, and 60 mp3 songs, and still I have 130 MB of free memory...
I convert the MP3 songs bit rate using the Phone's disc2phone software... from a 128bit rate file I convert it to 64, thus making a 4mb file into 2mb with a very minimal change in quality (highly unnoticeable)
I got this fone very cheap, no regrets!!! Everytime I buy a new SE fone, it get better and better.
I never had any troubles with the bluetooth. Try to upgrade your firmware. Maybe it could help.
Yes i also experienced the freeze when i play worm. That moment, in the middle of the game, i received n replied a text message, thus receiving a phone call. When i got back to the game, it froze. Maybe it's because the RAM is full..
welll i am usin dis phone currnetly n its great the sound quality with 3 speakeres (2 wrkin wen soundclips played) is rokin yah i like dah phone camera quALITY IS OK
N ITS a good phone (good design)
I owned sone ericsson w550i for three days now and it's great, with a few bugs on it. when i was about to off the bluetooth system it always freeze for no reason. it happen again when i exit one of the 3D games. It's quite frustrarted sometimes.
Other than that, this phone rocks and it's way better than nokia 7610 i used before. i love this phone a lot.
PS, if you know how to fix the little bug i mention earlier please tell me. Onegai shemas!
well i'm a w550i user.
what can i say. the sound quality is almost perfect. well it won't satisfy the audiophile ears', but at least it can stand along with iPod.. (it's just my opinion). the headset is great anyway. for ur information, the headset is similar with the one of the sony's, that is MDR-EX71.. you check that on their website.. around september 2005 i checked it out and found the price is 49.9 US$ (gosh)
the phone is quite fast, with just a little lags here and there. and the 256 mb internal memory is enough for me. besides, do you realy have enough time to hear 256 mb amount of music? i don't think so..
this is a walkman phone so i guess the camera is a "second" feature to consider. i'm fine with the 1.3 mp camera. i already have a Canon digital camera, so i won't bother with this phone's less-sized megapixel size.
well that's all from me.
i have heard the the first day u buy the sony ericsson w600i it works fine but the second day it starts to lag and it doesnt work that well. Another question, is the 256 memory slot large enough to hold a "good" amount of songs and does the phone shut off after u use it for an hour or so???
Go Nokia ..............Go away...........
Check the sound........You guys cannot reproduce it in even in N series.......
i have this phone and it is wondurfull the things that it can do it. And the sound...the sound it´s...marvillous
