Too much positive review... I have this phone for a three weeks and four keys are already cracked. Slider is loosy, and navigation keys are too tight. And also I was disappointed with plastic quality, too cheap.
All in all, I returned it due problem with keys and I think that Samsung U600 is so much better opinion with lower price. It is very solid built, great design and materials, and awesome camera compared to W580 terrible one. Also U600 sound quality is way better than this walkman one. Are you still think that SE is better in music than others? Walkmanis just a marketing gimmick for youth, I realized this when tried samsung sound quality with dedicated sound chip from bang&polufsen.
I don't understand how SE can price this handset so high while Samsung has so much nicer phones like U600.
I think W580 will flop with so unproven high price, hope SE will realize their mistakes, otherwise Samsung will beat SE all the time like they already did with G600 5ive megapixel phone which photo quality is already better than K850 quality.
it does look useable though... is it big problem if the keypad cracks?
The Pic show S500 keypad wif crack at 1 and 3 keys in the middle. almost same as S580 keypad problem.
can anyone post the picture of their cracked keypad???? i want to see how serious is it...
You are 100% right Ozzy....
I just ordered a Grey one, and if the keypad does crack, I am gonna give SE an earful.
There are only 3 model colors right, white, grey, and black? Because I am looking at my "white" model right now and I swear it looks more silver than white.
how can u recomend ds unit 2buy?i dnt have any idea bout ds unit,pls help me 2 tink.
ur phone is probably locked by your provider. thats why you cant use some features.
Just got the phone a week ago. Grey one, SEXY. I got it from rogers and i can't seem to apply mp3s to my ringtone or alarm tone and stuff. Anyone know how to fix that or add a program or something? Also do you find that the batteries drain pretty fast, even if the screen is at 50%, or playing music for a day or 2.
i dont understand how a company like S.E. in this day and age can release a phone KNOWING full well that there is a MANUFACTURERS fault with the keypad....what happened to quality control/testing....seriously shame on you sony. i use your phones cause i like them but dont let money become more important than your loyal fan/user club. without them you have NO market. cheers : )
can any1 tell me what these numbers are the insrease all day long on the main screen bottom left corner... looks like two footprint and a number beside it ..
@ Chu...the camera has also zoom at photos but in the vga pictures...it's the same as the w850...the zoom doesn't works at 2 and 1MP pictures..press 1 to change it to vga and the zoom will work...;)....
what exactly does happen when the keypad cracks?? and can it get fixed? if yes then does it crack again?
