Just to make it clear for those who are confused or are wondering about this and that.
It`s TFD-LCD and it`s the most greatest 176x220 LCD I`ve ever seen.Much greater than the one on W810 or K750 and so on.It has the best colors and contrast you can imagine.Also it`s physical size is larger, but this somehow doesn`t makes the pixels to be more visible to the eye.You gotta see it with your own eyes to understand what I mean.
I don`t like it.It`s worse than the one of K750/W810 but still can produce good photos.Also there`s a zoom but only when 640x480 photo resolution is used.The same applies for the videos it takes.It`s not bad but not that good as you may be used to see.
Gosh, this thing sounds great WOW.No matter if you use the headphones or the loudspeaker.It`s just amazing.Walkman 2.0 makes the things even better.And yes there IS MEGABASS.
I`ll say it simple.It has excelent performance in the menus and it outperforms like 3 times W810i in the java applications (jBenchamark 1.0 / 2.0 / 3D used).This is one of the main reasons to choose W610i over W810i.
5.Design, feels and looks:
Until you don`t see it and touch it you can`t get how great it is.Very slim and sylish and in the same time very comfort to use.I`ve the black-orange version and the orange color on the pictures that show the phone here and there just don`t show it`s real glosy look and finish.
After 1hr of use you get used to it and it`s not small at all.I see no problem using it for typing long text and such.It`s just not the thing you used to, but in many aspects it`s even better than the ones used in K750 or W810.
7.Misc that have to be mentioned:
You can access the digital standby clock by pressing once for short time one of the volume keys when the display gets turned off no matter if the keypad is locked or not.
M2 is an advantage and not disatvantage.
At first the keypad will be hard to use, but after some time it will be so easy! You CAN view videos in landscape mode, not so sure about the rewinding part, when I get home I'll check for you.
I'd also like to add that the phones look much BETTER in real life. The plush orange is more attention-demanding- your eyes can't miss it; it's lovely. The Satin Black is more austere and gives a sense of serenity!
The W810 has better camare because it has a better lens relation 4.8mm compare to W610 3.8mm, ocourse W610 has Bluetooth Stereo and Tracid, I am very touched to changed specially cause bluetooh stereo, thats a major advantage.
Thanks guyz for the info..
It helps me a lot, and also thanks for the
info of the display...no worry about that coz
i have my digital camera...but its nice
to hear that the TFT & TFD right?
One thing...im a music lover,
Does the headphone, speaker etc...works good?
and easy to transfer music from PC?
Again thanks a lot!
the keypad is veeeeery OKAY! no problem with it. and you can forward or rewind the video, dont know with full screen, havent tried.
Thanx for your comment :).
They sell here more the orange/black type ,so to get one in black/orange, is no problem =)
How is the keypad? Is it ok?
Can videos be viewed in full screen mode and can we rewind or fast forward the vid.....
I agree with solman when he said:
"The battery cover creaks when your holding the phone and typing txt messages"
-he meant the battery cover or the back cover..
but damn, i hate people when they compare between the pictures/camera of w610 and w810. i think, w810 clearer bcoz it uses the TFT lcd while w610 uses the TFD. i think its not the picture, its the LCD, the display, the screen. and i read in some review or was it in wikipedia that says TFT is clearer than TFD. the reason why w610 uses the TFD is bcoz it consumed less power. so battery life is higher in TFD lcd. anyways, in terms of picture, TFT lcd have a clearer display, thats why most ppl always say w810 has better images. so pls, dont compare thier image quality, its not its quality, its the LCD used.
Hi, Twan.....I bought this phone in Black/orange and i find it more elegent and attractive then the sliver/black....try to search for an orange phone in any mark, u will find it rarely, not like sliver or black...this what give it a unique look......
What is looking best? ,the black/ornage combo ,or the silver/black combo?
I Really like the silver/black comination on the SE W880 ,but my mother dont let me buy it ,it is "to expensive--.'"
What is looking best? tell me.
So I've received my SE W610 a few days ago. I'm loving it. Review will be up shortly.
I WILL BE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FROM YOU GUYS, OK?
I would also like to say that the DISPLAY IS CRISP AND PERFECT. Yes, it's TFD, but you can compare the display to the W810's TFD and still be amazed. The camera is awesome in natural sunlight, but alas it is not that great in artificial lighting. If you really care about pictures, don't get this phone get a digital camera! The pictures look good on the phone, and that's all I need- to capture the moments, not put it all on the PC. Multitasking, the w610 is a master at this! Simply awesome. The sound is just as loud as my old w810, so no faults there. The internal memory can support you themes, games, webpages, pics etc. Reserve your memory card for your awesome music. I have yet to get a 2GB m2- I'm sure it won't lag. EDGE works like a charm, using Opera Mini 3 or 4 is a delight. The phone's browser is QUITE good too.
That's all for now, ask me questions.
i had this phone for a month now and i have no problems regarding the performance,the software,no lags,no hangs,eventhough ive replaced it with a 2gb m2.etc. the walkman 2.0 is great and the track ID is good too but the bad part is the camera,i have a W810i too but the camera of W810i is much clearer and better than the W610i's.images where much crispier than they appearin W810i. but that's not a big deal. the battery last almost 3 days to me with mp3's on and normal usage. i love this phone,worth buying. its good in multitasking activities. the phone's software never slows down. this is worth buying than W880i. i had a W880i but i sell it to a friend. the great part of W880i is its slim,walkman 2.0 of course. but the sad thing is,it lags and the screen is much smaller than W610i. and for the camera lovers,W880i's camera has no flash and no autofocus,you better buy W850i then.eventhough it doesnt have autofocus,it has a flash. i hope this helps. For me,sony ericsson never ceases to amaze us. but you must have a lot of bucks if new comers arrive. more Fascinating phones for SE's will come up.
I initially had a k750i, I loved that phone and I now prefer Sony Ericson than anything else.Very similar but in a smaller form factor.Nice differences like the media player on the main screen is awesome and the vibrating while scrolling through the main menu is cool and unexpecting. For me a few minor things. 1. The buttons are too small for my large fingers. 2 The battery cover creaks when your holding the phone and typing txt messages. Other than that, one again a great phone for SE lovers.
i think the design and colour of this phone is absolutely amazing. the sound is great too! i love this phone!!!!!!!!!!!!
In my opinion and experience , SE phones are way faster than others... Nokia phones are on the slower side.. may be because of less internal memory (all phones i experienced slowness had low internal memory say 6 mb) I'm saying this because ... my friend filled data to his new k750 till 2 mb less than full. When i got the phone, i experienced a big lag in the menu interface. i wondered why this new phone is so slow? Then i realized that its the memory causing the problem.. and i moved all the music files
to the memory card.. then the lag was gone...
u people can try that too.. fill ur phone memory to the full and see how's ur phones menus responds. i think in one or two days u will feel the slowness.
Thanks for your valueable information. But I am really confused between W610i and W580i.
W580i has no flash light, autofocus and memory of just 12 mb but it comes with a 1gb card.It has 2" QVGa screen with 240 X 320 pixels.
on the other hand, W610i has flash light, autofocus with 512 mb card and portable speakers too.Screen size 1.9", 176 X 220 pixels and Qcif screen.
Featurewise both have same features except the pedometer.
Can u please guide me which one to buy. I am goin to buy within a 2 days so need quick response from the users who is using it.
Aditya from india
the keypad is good, very good. nothing to worry about. w610i is faster than N73. hehe
yes the software used is really good, so nothing to worry, its fast.
