nobody is forcing to buy nokia. afterall it is ur money.
everyone has their own tastes and preferences.
both nokia and se are good.
but nokia is still no.1
Its not worth. I say its useless. I've taken the phone to the service center 6 times in my warranty period , now after 1 year use its having multiple probs and i was recommended by the service center people to pay Rs 7000 to get it repaired. I payed 13500 when i bought the phone so"13500+7000" its a waste. still i love everything about w-580. i would suggest dont go for it
i have this phone,, but i have a problem,, the left panel key doesent work,, & also the # sighn key,, does any one knows how to resolve this???and also is there anyway to avoid the keypads to crack?? pls help!,, :(
I really like SE and I bought two SE phones this year. The interface is very cool and the screen is super vibrant unlike with NOKIA that the screen looks very sad and oldish. SE has cool games which I can download for free and the walkman phones has superb sound.. NOKIA cannot beat their walkman headsets and its only SE that does that.. =)
gka3000, 21 Jul 2009this peice of crap s.e. walkman w580 series prooves that the walkman models are not that good ... moreWalkman players never got boring. You can custumize it if you want. Unlike Nokia were the interface is the most boring interface of all interface. Almost everything is the same. I mean come on! N series music players are the most horrible music players too. Walkman players are the best. It's so organized and at the same time has really smooth and fun animations. You can even custimize it or add some skins. There's Walkman 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0. Unlike Nokia were it's all the same old boring thing.
gka3000, 21 Jul 2009this peice of crap s.e. walkman w580 series prooves that the walkman models are not that good ... moreWalkman is way better and MegaBass is not a gimick. It's really high in bass. Nokia phones may have that stupid symbian, but you don't really need all those applications. I was an N series user once. I owned the N73me and I realized I don't need those applications and there are lots of java applications available for SE. N73 gave me lots of problems like memory full bug. Stupid Nokia processors are so slow. SE is relly good. And you don't get bored with thier interface because their ar tons of flash menu and you can even custumize your phone. Stupid Nokia has that same old menu for how many years now and there are no animations at all. How boring is that! Their phone's design are so boring. SE has those really funky design and awesome interface. Their phones are more reliable because Nokia's phones always tend to hang and lag. And XpressMusic has the worst sound quality ever!! SE is the best! SE Rules!
i agree with u totally . nokia is garbage . i mean allmost every model of nokia is garbage . i know there r 1 or 2 weak models in sony too like w580 which is little dalicate but sony is way better than dust called nokia
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2009i agree with u totally . nokia is garbage . i mean allmost every model of nokia is garbage . i... morethis peice of crap s.e. walkman w580 series prooves that the walkman models are not that good like they were used to be . this w580 model is the most returned mobile product for the last few months since the time it got released .
the walkman series got boring animations and menus just like the s.e. k series products same old firmware in almost all s.e. products and with two or three options changed here and there each time they relelase a new phone , plus the s.e. firmware is really well known for crashing stuck up and lag problems . since s.e. doesnt have inbuilt processors like most nokias its a shame that just a firmware is getting stuck up on usage . nokias are way better cuz they perform with quality processors and uses symbian os . symbian os supports millions of applications while s.e. firmware is having difficult moments finding java supported softwares around the internet . the s.e. walkman series mega bass option is just a marketing gimmik its just a equalizer preset in nokia xpress music model u can match the s.e. mega bass sounds just by changing the equalizer presets in order (some gsmarena xpress music reviews have confirmed this) . s.e.s are just for ppl who wanna get bored with ur mobile just in two three weeks while nokia xpress music is for ppl who wanna love there mobiles for a life time .
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2009XpressMusic has the worst sound quality ever and has the worst music players ever. The Walkman... morei agree with u totally . nokia is garbage . i mean allmost every model of nokia is garbage . i know there r 1 or 2 weak models in sony too like w580 which is little dalicate but sony is way better than dust called nokia
XpressMusic has the worst sound quality ever and has the worst music players ever. The Walkman's walkman player are the most awesome music players out there. The interface is really fun and has a lot of animations. And walkman's sound quality is just awesome! While in nokia, it's all the same old crap. So people, if you want way better music phones get Walkmans not that stupid XpressMusic because you'll really regret it and you'll get bored with the same old music players and interface.
nikit, 18 Jul 2009its a stupid phone..! one of frnds has it and the buttons came off in jus 2 months..! its slow... moreEeewww Nokia phones are stupid. Especially the N series. They look like bricks and their really heavy. And what horrible user interface they've got. Xpress Music has the worst sound quality ever and their designs look like toys. SE has the best userinterface and best designs ever. And don't talk about Nokia having better processors because their phones always hang and lag. This phone might have a lot of problems but there are still a lot of better SE phones out there. Nokia is just plain crap. SE has the best looking phones, most stable phones, and the most awesome user interface ever. Nokia is just so boring. All their menus and such are all the same. SE RULES!!
saranjith, 20 Jul 2009iam using w 580 for one and half year the phone is very good and no complaints dont lie man ... ur using a w580 for half an year and ur not having any problems thats the biggest lie ive ever heard probably anyone who used a w580 wont beleive what ur saying ... i hope ur keys are not damaged at least - freaking liers .
I work in an O2 Store in Ireland and I can confirm that the w580 by Sony Ericsson has many, many issues. Last year, it was possibly the most returned phone of the year.
The major faults were:
.Keypad keys not responding
.Slide getting stuck half way up
.Screen seemed to slip behind casing, meaning that some of the screen cannot be seen.
A customer has given me this phone for free because of all the troubles they've had with it. Ive gotten it repaired (for free, of course :) ) and I'm gonna try it for a few weeks from tomorrow, to test it for myself.
But yes, the phone is extremely unreliable and would not be advised. It looks good, and thats about it.
Hope this helps,
iam using w 580 for one and half year the phone is very good and no complaints
The display of this phone is really worst. My phone worked well for 5 months, later i had changed the display because of the display problem. I spend rs 2500 to change the display.. And i m not the only one who got this problem, there are so many others also google it.
i had this phone for well over a year and i had no problem with it what so ever.this is in fact a very good phone.
its a stupid phone..! one of frnds has it and the buttons came off in jus 2 months..! its slow..! and highly over priced for its features..! but wat the hec.. thts how sony ericsson phones are.. stupid and over priced..! so i wud suggest uall to stop buying sony phones. nokia phones wid equivalent features and better processors are for almost half the price..! i feel sad for ppl who bought this phone. sony ericsson tricked u into it.. its jus looks good.. but inside its a horrible phone.. i wont use a sony phone even if someone sells it to me for free NOKIA ROCKS..!!!!
This phone takes okay photos. And that's about it. The buttons crack in half and stop working after a while... for example, my space button quit working, and off and on, other random buttons quit working then work. I don't know what's up with it. All of my keys are cracked and the center button in the ring always gets stuck.
I can't wait to get another phone. It always locks up when you close it, and the clear button is so conviniently close to the browser button that you are writting a text message when you get on the internet, lose your text for about a week, and your text messages stop popping up. Unless you restart the phone which takes forever.
I do not recommend this phone to anyone, unless it is just to have for a few days.
good fone but just a show peace..... i got a lot of problems and suggest everybody not to buy it.
surinder, 16 Jul 2009It's really a very very very good phone .this reply goes to mr surinder -
ur comment on this phone (saying its a very very very good phone) just made a another 1000s of ppl get into trouble by buying this model - so why dont u face the truth and speak the truth ok . dont put innocent ppl into trouble . some are working hard for a few months just to buy a new phone that fits em for a life time using there salary . not everyonce rich .
this model is a failure im sure u have expirienced it with every fault in this phone . the w580 units were sold and have been returned in thousands to mobile phone stores around the world .

go for w910 by s.e. its way better than this one but never buy w580.
