@ rick .... then there must be something wrong with the phone itself , ask for a replacement fast if you cant get quality music from w610 then it totally defeats the purpose of gettin one .... i do not own a w610 yet but getting it soon and yeah i have had walkman branded phones they do sound great with the stock headfones provided in the box :)
I have a question. I like to text people with my Motorola Razr and i am thinking of getting this phone. Are the buttons really bad for texting?
Okay here comes a dumb question. Does bitrate affect battery consumption? I just want to be sure. I want to put on 64 kbps wma on this fone, thats what I use on my mp3 player. It dosen't sound too bad ( I know many will cringe at the though of music at such a low bitrate). It lets you get more music on the card, and lets face it, those M2 cards are a little pricy compared to transflash/micro sd. I cant fork out for a 8mb M2 card!
Whoever answered my question, THANK YOU! I'm of to the shop to get me a new mobile fone! To David.J (my namesake)- get the w610i, its the best of the bunch.
megabass n 6+ sound volume, mine not distorted..
sounds crisp? sony recommend use 192kbps music file format.. but, for me, with 128kbps + megabass, PERFECT!
choose w610, not k550 nor w810..
Thanks for the fast reply alpha!
Well, the music has variable bit rate (going from 128 to 320 kbps) and, as I said before, the headset works great on other devices! I have no idea what`s wrong with my W610i, I had a W800i before - that thing had a flawless loud crisp sound... ( so I know how a Walkman phone should sound like)
So,guys,how does the music on your W610i sounds with Mega Bass activated at high volumes? Is the sound in any way distorted?
Try se-nse.net but you have to download a software called Phone XS. It's like opening your phone's Operating System. It's kinda conplicated.
@rick maybe your mp3's have bad bit rate , or just ask for a headset replacement dude
To David j,
Go for W610 dude...brilliant camera with LED Flash and autofocus..great walkman 2.0..the speaker is awsome..u can even modified the acoustic driver.. i recently check up my friend's new K550 and to my horror it doesnt hv any option on the autofocus in the camera mode...i thought Cyber-shot phone should include that kind of option.. ~sigh~
I bought a W610i recently, but it seems to have a major flaw: when I use the MegaBass feature the music sounds bad if the volume is above level 4. It`s like the headset is breaking apart, the sound that results is awful ( a squeaking & creaking unpleasant sound). I updated the software, but the problem still exists. I tried other headphones with the phone - the nasty sounds are still there, and also I tried the phone`s headphones with other devices - they sound great! So it`s not the headphone`s fault.
I was wondering if someone has encountered the same problem, and if is anything else that I could try... And for those who own the phone, how is the music at level 7-8 with MegaBass enabled? Is the sound distorted at all? (mine is, even with MegaBass disabled)
yes the phone hv the option for the flash light n SOS in the organizer.. it can also play video full screen on landscape mode..
i didnt ask about memory card.........
i asked where to get all those cooool flash menu themes.......
and more specifically,
how to apply them, coz it seems there is something different in using them........
i'll be VERY thankfull to u.........
4GB and 8GB
work fine! perfectly
same speed as with no memory card in!
no slowdowns,No hangs, !
yes sorry...i was wrong about 2gb maximum..my bad...i have a problem though since i updated firmware when i hover over my video thumbnails they no longer play :(...has anybody else had this problem. Its no big deal but its just bugging me
8GB memory and it works??????
GOSH! I love my extraodinary W610!
wtf??? 4gb & 8gb M2 works well in W610?? damn i gotta buy 4GB M2 for my W610...R u sure theres no lag or anything? or mayb it slow down the phone or sumthin..pleasss tell me
I'm so close to buying this phone, it seems perfect. I just have a few questions. Is there a separate menu option for activating the light without having to go throught the camera? On the w810i there is that option in the organiser menus, which even has the option to flash an SOS signal, but when i tried the w610i simulated phone on the Sony Ericsson website, I saw no such option. Also, can it play videos in full screen landscape mode? On the mobile reviews website they say it can (they even show the menu options) but i cant find the menu options on the simulated phone. If it cant play video in landscape i might just have to go for the cheaper (and better display) Nokia 5300, which i think is cool but no match for the w610i.
