Oh C'mon everybody knows that Nokia died when GSM appeared. Nokia were the greatest phones ever but when TDMA was the newest technology!!!. For me there are no more phones than SE and Motorola in GSM.I owe a SE k700 and I can say i haven't tried the SE w800i but i'm sure that everything that Sony Ericsson produces it's back-guaranteed that it's purest quality.And if you're a Nokia GSM user (it doens't matter what model of nokia you have, all of them are crap) take it to your nearest SE Dealer and see if SE dealer have some mercy of you and changes your nokia 6600i for a simpla SE t106 i can say the SE t106 will work much better than the "greatest" nokia 6600i[ja ja LOL :-)].
I had been using SE products since the inception of GSM in Nigeria. Meanwhile, a month back, I decided to try Nokia 6600. Now, I am delighted for this product (W800i), I can not waite for it to be Launch in Uk market,because I have asked my wife to place order for it.
I think this will be a super phone for now.Meanwhile,SE should improve on their look up from the phone book just as Nokia phones does.
OOOh. this looks good. only just got samsung d500 tho. will prob get this on upgrade,, bf has just got k750i, so i know SE is good,,, Have always had Nokia before, but having just gone through 3 6230i's, all faulty, i went for a d500.... tempted by this one now....
Theres more too it...
SONY ERICSSON w800i
-Display TFT, 256K colors
-38 MB shared memory // Comes with 512mb stick.
-2 MP, 1632x1224 pixels, autofocus, video, flash.
-MP3 = up to 30h playback if the phone is switched off.
-Stand-by Up to 400 h // Talk time = 9h
-Quality on mp3 playback is better so is video quality.. mp3 = Stereo playback..
-Comes with more things bundled that are worth some $$$.
-TFT, 65K colors - Worser
-MMC (up to 512 MB) - You dont get the 512mb card. + its upto 512. not like w800 = 2GB - Worser. If u want to buy a 512mb stick for 6230i it costs around 90$ around here. So yo u dont save much.
- 32 MB internal memory - Worser
-1.3 MP, 1280x1024 pixels, video (QCIF) - WORSER
-Up to 300 h -standby - Worser
-Up to 5 h - talktime - Worser
Overall: w800i Truimphs over 6230i by FAR. Everything is better Quality wise. they both have mp3's but what mp3 quality is better. Sony walkman specilise in AUDIO, i dont see nokia making mp3 plays and cd players speakers and hi fi's.
I rest my case..
Where does SEW800 and K750i made from,guys?
If it made in China, you won't get the same quality as it made in Japan. Like...battery will have shorter life, screen resolution weaker,camera will have poorer image, phone built will less solid and quality! That's how the phone get to sell cheaper. Sonyericsson should only make in Japan that way we're all get the best out of it! Don't you guys ever try to convince yourself that made in China and Japan the same thing! Yeah, same name but different quality! KEEP THIS IN MIND! I rather pay $100 or more for the version made in Japan.
the se w800 is miles better than the rubbish nokia 6230i, se w800i got one of the best camera around and a better screen
Man, the best phone is Nokia 6230i not this stupid phone! bla bla bla. a comparison from those phone:
nokia 6230i: mp3 player, 1,3megapixel camera
se w800: mp3 player, 2megapixel camera (and very good Battery)
nokia 6230i price: 350 $
se w800 price: 600$
the choice is yours
yes i was just wondering in the above link image. does the w800 come with this? so we can connect anyheadphones we want, because i prefer to use my own sony headphones.
So is it an extra or does it come bundled.
Official Release Date For W800i In Australia Is: 15th August.
Thats currently 17 days away.(today being 29th July).
Ive got mine ordered.. ill be picking it up on the 15th of August :) *dances*
I have just one question, What is the difference between the SE W800 and the SE K750?
I live in america and i have a nokia n-gage and I'm just itching for a new phone... so i was checking around and im very interested in this phone but.. I really dont know what the difference is? Could someone tell me?
I have the sony K750 and the Nokia 7610. Sorry to say this guys but as the design goes this phone is dull. My N7610 gets more attention than my sony ericsson does.
Don't get me wrong, i love my sony ericsson and use it every day, but as design goes this phone looks like the cheaper t610. Mind as well just get a iPod for MP3's.
w800 is avaliable for pre-order on sony online store in hong kong, which will be delivered on 8-11/8
it takes HKD 3980 (abt USD 511), a reasonable price while compared with k750 (which takes HKD 3680)
It seems SE has released its Chinese Version as there is no longer coming soon tag against W800c on its website.
Ne1 got its hands on it? ne reviews on it?
9-HOURS OF Talk Time?
HOW COME THE BATTERY LIFE IS THE SAME AS 900 mah LIPO ON K750? As far as I always knew Lipo is twise stronger than Li-ion. Then, 900 mah Lipo on k750 , I can understand can provide 9hr talk and 400 standby. So, how the heck 900 li-ion on w800 provides exact the same life time?
k750 Price: $412.00 w800 Price: $625.00
these prices are without any phone plan from a company
Man nokia sure is losing fans...but it's true,SE is the best !
As for the W800,i'm accepting donations.
Nokia phones are too simple and lack good design sometimes. SE has it all, and they are not complex once you start using them day after day. Anyways people dont mind complexity, as long as they can handle it. That's what technology is all about.
well i wanna no cause i saw a website that says that you can get software and make it so its has everything that the W800 has eg like the logo and start up menu and the music player how the phones tured off and you can play music so it saves power
thanks guys please sum1 tell me cause the W800 costs heaps morea and i like the K750i better.
We've just been informed this morning that there will be very limited stock on all networks in the UK until the second batch in October, so if you want one you should reserve it now!!!
