I've been using this phone for 7 months now. So far it is excellent. I've only got one to complain about. The metal centre piece is NOT METAL. Even though i dont keep long fingernails, the silver colour is all scrapped out. hence it looks a bit used. i Wished they used real metal and not plastic-sprayed-with-silver-paint! sigh
Excellent Handset. No doubts about it. Anyone still contemplating on buying one. Go for it! I bought this last month for Rs 13,400 (Approx US $300)in India.
I just sold k790i and bought this phone.
I was very disappointed with k790's music performance.The camera was good though but not the best. This was my second option since it has the best sound, better camera than w700 and no joystick issue.
W810i has better ergonomics and is a true performer in all attributes.
Before buying it I compared the screen camera clarity with W810i. I was amazed to see that w810i was clearer and brighter.
The music in ear is the best and the keypad is much more easy to use than k790i
Anyways, im waiting for a Cybershot Walkman....
hi just wanna ask which phone is better to use? is it z610i or w810i? coz i can't decide whick one to buy. i both like the features of these phones. i like the z610i coz of its look and i like clamshell phones. but camera has no flash (sigh)..which is what i like with the w810i. coz camera is great and has flash, which is an advantage if you're in kindda dark places. i don't mind about the mp3 stuff..coz i got an ipod, so it's not a problem. with the z610 cover, does it scratch easily?? plz help...
Yes, the phone needs to be able to access the internet for google maps to work. But I think that google maps could only work on the unlocked version of the phone.
Yes you can buy this phone here in the philippines for only 15k at the mall
Somebody knows where to get T9 upgrades in other languages like spanish, french , italian... that would make my phone a real global rounder.
for using the google map... does it require internet access on your phone? or you don't need to use internet to operate the google map?
hi there..wat are the disadvantages and disadvantages of se w810??how much do you think guys this fone at the philippines??tnx
I am So Sorry Guys ,,yes u misunderstood me I MEAN the phone supports all songs with all rates 128,192,312kbps etc. but if u will make ur song as a RINGTONE ,,yes it will be 128kbps and lower rates only " in my openion its not a problem at all " Enjoy da phone its one of da greatest.
Recently I downloaded google maps for this phone. And it works pretty well. Does anyone know any other good applications that you could download from the internet that work well on this phone?
i think what he/she mean is that the phone only support up to 128kbps for ringtones.. for mp3 player it can support more than 312kbps i believe because i have a few song that are 312kbps.
Does the battery drain quickly if you use Walkman while phone is on? Approx. how long will the battery last if you listen to the Walkman about 5-6 hours a day?
w810i isnt a good fone then....if it only supports 128KBPS of bit rate thats crappp...
For All people who r complaining abt that their phones work with some mp3 files and dont work with some other mp3 files, the Sony Ericsson w810 works only with the mp3 files that have the rates of "128 Kbps" and less rates,while it doesnt run mp3s higher than 128KB,keeping in mind that songs at that rate are of high quality and not bad at all, so u have to see first if ur Song is with that rate or higher or lower ,,anyways when ur song exceeds the 128kbps (for example u found it 192kbps) u will download a converter from the net that converts those rates to 128kbps or lower ( Most famous program does that job is 'MP3go128' )and its free online.
Hi,everybody ..so how r u..i hope u all of alright. Please tell me if the lense of the camera has cover??(W810i)
Bought this phone today and I've got to tell you I'm really impressed. First of all it's lightweight, my previous phone was heavier and it felt uneasy at first. Hope I won't have problems with the phone like others had brought up. I'm excited really. Thanks to all the useful comments, it helped me out a lot. A big factor of me buying the phone is the satisfaction that owners had with this phone. Thanks again. :)
