First of all the Nokia N90 boasts the best screen ever in a mobile phone. Sharp only use 320x240. This screen is still used in the Sharp 903. I agree that the Sony Ericsson S700i is the best 1.3mp camera phone in terms of picture quality. However when people start saying the N90 is worse than the W800 in terms of features they are mistaken. I see that some people may not want to buy the N90 because of the size, this is a valid reason. But when people say the W800 has more features it is them who are been biased. Some of you Sony Ericsson fans always say Nokia fans shop by brand and not by product but you are doing the same. If anyone was to madmouth Sony Ericsson like I am doing you all like to retaliate. Just like I am doing to some of the comments made.
Hi folks i have tried installing the software that come wiv the w800 but right at the end of installation it come up wiv error 1935 anybody else had the same problem? if so how did you manage to get around it?
Sam if u wanna a smart phone go for P910. But if u wanna a phone that will have a good camera, display & player go for W800. its all.
Sonners there r some people like u who r brand ambaseddors. They only praise brands not products. No doubt Nokia is the largest producer of handsets. But surly not the best handset makers. My dear wake up and see the truth. Nokia is ages behind in display from Sharp. And from Sonyericsson in camrera. I am not telling that they don't product good handsets. SE S700 is still the best 1.3 camera phone with Samsung D500 & Sharp GX30. Few years before Nokia lead the market with just candybars but now they r also think ing of some innovation. I don't hate Nokia as i hav 2 Nokia phones and they r not bad at all. But in SE W800 & Nokia N90. SE W800 is better. Try to see the products not brand.
Plz tell me that which phone is worth buying W800 or P910i. Also tell me that does W800 plays .WAV tones.
Everything about this W800i is perfect, except the contact list.
you can only search your contact list for their first letter.
best phn/toy/mp3player/camera/all in one ever!
any idea whr to get solid games for this baby?
its the best deal for anyone tech savvy person!!!
The thing that annoys me about sony ericsson, is that most of their new stuff is just double ups. IE: w600 and w550, k750 & w800, s700i & s710 & s600, k500 & k508 & j300, z800 & v800, and the list goes on. Sony ericsson are becoming the new nokia - in other words, they are slack. Instead of creating new phones, they are getting old phones, putting in a better camera or more memory or whatever, to try to make it seem like a new phone. Its like when a band releases an album, then adds a new song and re-releases the album. You are better off waiting until there are no more re-inventions, or until there is something better, otherwise ur just being taken for a ride.
hey sonners.. i am a SE fans, but i do not actually hate N90. In fact i really confess that nokia produce a very good phone like N90. Just to let you know, some people just want their phone to be small. I got this bad experience with a very bulky phone 2 years a go, and since then i really look for those phone which is compact and small. So, i will buy nokia only if they are capable to produce a very good phone with the size of no more than 102X44X20. So far, i do not see any nokia phone that has a feature like W800 or better within such a size.
i really can`t understant the people that actually think of gettin a digital camera...this phone has quality pictures for indoor and outdoor and mp3 player and fm radio and even a flashlight...wtf man...why should i get a backpack to carry an i-pod, digital camera, telephone, flashlight and radio(how many pockets would you need?). why not all of them into one tiny telephone? i`m a nokia guy but hats down for SE for this W800i...it`s the best phone on the market at this time!!!
This phone is not all that expensive. I am after buying the Nokia N90 and I gonna have to pay nearly twice as much, but for me it is totally worth it. Everyone seems to hate the phone though. Why? My opinion is because all of you Sony Ericsson fans won't accept any Nokia model to be superior. People call the N90 big,ugly and heavy even though it is one of the most stylish and origional handsets on the market. I even went in a shop and asked them if they had the N90 in and they started bad mouthing it saying that it was too heavy and that the Sony Ericsson W800i was far smarter. I replied by saying that I was only interested in buying the N90 because I did not feel the W800i did as much as the N90, plus I wanted a phone which can take good video as well as good pictures. For some reason the guy looked at mem like he was offended by me not wanting to be like everyone else. I think their are certain Sony Ericsson fans out their who find they have to destroy Nokia's image but it doesn't seem to work becasue Nokia are still the biggest and arguebly the best.
use my W800 with a 1gb MS Pro Duo, it was awesome!!!!! 150 songs and still got 400MB space to go!
wth...so expensive... might as well buy a k750 and get another mp3 player if you wan the memory for mp3 player files....it's like 1/3 MORE expensive than k750 and since k750 is not that cheap too!
omfg this phone is soo bad i the sounds of mp3 = BAD. the camera sux! only the space rox the rest same as k750i! buy this phone = regret~!
For Sam yes it does come wiv videodj i got this phone 2 days ago and love all the features on it
Can somebudy tell me does SE W800 comes with VideoDJ application as SE K750 comes. Thanks!
To: thebuddha--With regards to T-Mobile vs. Cingular (AT&T).
These are the facts:
T-Mobile purchased and owns all the Cingular and AT&T sites. The 850 band is in use with Cingular--but it's not Cingular's main freq. It's very new to them. And, it is the least used freq. in the US.
When on T-Mobile--T-Mobile customers with tri-band phones automatically use the Cingular sites--if they are nearer or stronger. When using a quad-band phone--T-Mobile has access to the most sites.
Both companies have phones with 900, 1800, 1900 and 850, 1800, 1900.
Sony released the W800i this way in the US--because the combination of 900, 1800, 1900 is more common--and should yield the best result.
