u must b a kiwi from NZ oscar.. all u kiwis r in love with SE. its just 74 grams heavier.. unless u r a weekling 73 grams is nothing. remember wat yaser said.. his friend's k750i broke from less than a meter from the ground. that just proves how weak SE phones are and it proves y their prices r so cheap. thank you yaser for that opinion u r the man! NOKIA ROX! w800 is small so it's keys wil be hard 2 control and press! plus w800's screen is not as big as n90.
To both Jamal and Yasser
Yeah im a kiwi, so what. And yeah SE is the best, nokia doesnt even compare. The W800 is like almost half the size and weight of the n90. The n90 is just so big, and the w800 does everything that the n90 can do, and more.
Ok first to 'wek' calm down about the Nokia thing I am an avid Nokia user. I have had service with many different providers and many different manufacturers and throughout it all Nokias are the most reliable in every sense.
True, they may be on the expensive side, but I would gladly pay for the peace of mind that I will probably never have to call about something wrong with my phone. HOWEVER to the person that 'wek' was writing to, while I understand SE maybe a questionable company now especially after I had that Nightmare aka the T610 for two weeks (most of the time it was in transit between the repair/exchange centers and my house) but you cannot go bashing a phone for no reason.
This W800i that SE has put out seem like a very promising phone. You have read the comparisons between the N90 and W800i, nothing more is needed.
Aside from that, I would not even spit on that phone for how large it is. I'd much rather have this smaller phone, with the same if not better specs and performance along with my Sony 10mpx digi cam. And just in case somebody wanted to bring up its big brother that other hunk of junk N91, I have a few things to say about that. SE is putting their phone out NOW; Nokia is going to wait until the 'first quarter 2006'? Right just like they told me back in June that it was going to be available in September the latest (I have the e-mails and names/rep ids of the Nokia employees). So while people will be fighting over that HAM (Hot @$$ Mess) people like me that have had their phone that is comparable for 6 months (probably a year knowing the history of this phone's postponements) will be ready for an upgrade to something that will be better leaving this phone (the N91) a relic and still highly priced.
I agree with ‘wek’ that expensive is not always better, I also disagree with ‘wek’ that cheap is always better. The best products have a balance between quality and price. SE is not a cheap phone, unless you are uber rich, 500.00USD is about 10 tanks of gas where I’m from so I would probably never spend more than that for a phone. If I wanted to spend 800.00+USD on a cell phone because of the name and features, I would just pay the extra 500.00USD and buy another laptop now you can go running back to your 800.00+USD hunk of garbage N90 and feign over its dumb features while I’m doing everything on my laptop and 10mpx digi cam. And when I don’t feel like carrying the computer around I’ll have my phone that doesn’t place 2 bulges in my pants (no pun intended *smile*).
Now that y’all are in your places let’s finish using this board for well founded opinions about this phone, and not b*tchy whims of the mind that make you feel important.
Na Jamal your just completly wrong. The w800 is the best fone ever. No-one can beat it!!! The N90 is crap, just look at the images posted by gsmarena, come on they are just so much better. And the size and weight of the n90 compeared to the w800, it just looks huge, and lets be honest no-one wants a huge fone, unless they are retarded.
oscar... SE can never beat nokia.. not in a million years... nokia is devoted to ony mobiles... why do u think it is the highest selling mobile brand?? yes w800 is gud but n90 is better.. its only a few cms bigger than w800 and only a few grams heavier.. SO WAT? get over it is wat im gonna say! w800 also looks ugly. n90 especially with the colour black looks very good.. its 3G and 2MP and u can put 1GB cards.. its just nearly perfect.. only vibration missing but no biggie! nokia rox!
The w800 is the best fone everrrr!!!!!!!!!! It beats the N90 by far, just look at the size and weight of the N90 compared to the w800. It is just so gud

everyone just blabber here about how good da phone is but one btohers to answer in which manner is it good! i can't answer ur questions SCOOBY 'cuz i do not own one.. probably one of da owner would bother to answer yer questions.. common guys don't be shy
I have it for five days and until now it seems ok.I previously owned a Nokia 6670 so I'll compare to that.Standby time it's a little bit greater then the nokia’s.Camera is great not only by resolution but also by great functionality .Great keypad, really nice MP3 player.Phone book is not so evolved like in nokia and also the synchronization did not went without “incidents” .The menu is not so flexible but overall I think it’s a good phone .

Please help me if anyone knows how to activate it because my service provider BPL Mobile and even Sony Ericsson customer care service unable to help me.....
And there is nothing to say about SE w800i, it's toooooooooo good..........
hi there, I had this set 2 weeks ago, and I saw many questions here I would like to answer,
1- it really has a vibration alert.
2- you can use mp3 for incoming message alert.
3- it records video as big as the free space of your memory card.
any other questions I'll be glad to answer.. just send me an e-mail,, thnx alot, and enjoy this great web-site :-)
I bought the W800 about a month ago. It's the best cellular phone I've ever seen. The picture quality is just so high that I never thought it would be possible to achive this with a cellular phone.
And the MP3 player is just outstanding.
And most people say it is already enough to buy a K750. Well, if you add the price for a memory dua 512 stick, you allmost get to the same price as a W800. Maybe a diffrence of 50€. But who cares, 'couse the colordesign of the w800 is verry tastefull and stylisch
