optical soom is better than digital zoom. digital zoom just uses the camera software to enlarge it whereas optical is in the lens and zooms it without loss of quality.
Well I looked in to all the phones that nearly had the same of every thing inclusive of the nokia n70 and n90 but there swivel screen gives problems so I opped for sony ericsson W810i . I have it now for 4 weeks and wow its more than I wanted espesially the soft ware upgrade that you don't have to go to a place for you to do it, freakin nice. My previous phone was the se K700i and fell 3m high onto a concreat floor and still works my daughter has it now.The games on the W810i is gr8t especially the 3D ones .The walkman side with the sony ericsson earphones has the best sound around .The camera you can only get better in a dedicated digital camera of more than 2megpixal camera ,I'm not going to go further because there are to much to tell and spoil the fun in a new phone , all I can say is that YOU WON'T BE SORRY YOU BOUGHT THE W810i forget the nokia's n70 and n90 range my n90 lasted 2 weeks before it bonked out.
@Carbonize & Arj!
In Phone Status I have read this...
I don't know about it. Can anybody help?
i think that this phone's camera is great for a 2.0 mp. however i'm not sure about using zoom because i don't know whether it is optical zoom or digital... can anybody tell me? and which one is the better one?
What's the file system of the Memory Stic? In XP it shows as FAT; also it's capacity as 463MB. I wonder where the rest (50MB) is? Only 462 MB is available (+22MB phone memory). Is this right? how much you ppl get in ur phones? Is it because of the FAT file system, 50MB is lost? Arj, Carbonize, vince... help plz.
I have spoken with SE reps and they say that officially, the w810i can support 2gb cards but that it may be possible to support 4gb cards. They say they've never tested it. I'd like anyone who has actually tried it to respond and tell us all what's up. Feel free to email me.
@Mark - It can be anythign you want. You can use the themes wallpaper or select your own.

Hi again! Just to say a small thingy about video paying on this phone. I found out that while viewing a video in WALKMAN mode apart from pausing it by pressing the navigation central key, if its pressed at the bottom, one can watch the video at SLOW MOTION mode, frame by frame. Not bad eh? Well told ya, its just a simple feature, just wanted you to know :o)
Carbonize, you have a registration code for xilosoft 3gp video converter 3? I've been looking every site for like codes and i can't find any. I was wondering if you have one and tell me. Great help thankz. If your not carbonize and you have a code, yeah you can give me one Thankz
not the best battery in the world, but bearable, great options, wonderful sound, i love it
What is the main different between W700i and W810i? But for W700i, is more cheaper then W810i. Is there any special features for this phone?
Anyone know how to setup the screensaver/stand-by timers?
Its just annoying when it randomly sets stand-by itself when I'm doing some stuff.
pressing the controller center button on the w810 several times actually sends out a blank text message to the first person on your contacts list. I was shocked to find out that I had sent out 69 blank messages and I keep my phone locked most of the time when it's in my pocket. Do I get charged $$ for blank text messages? And is there a way to prevent this from happening (other than locking the phone which people will forget to do sometimes)?
Just planning to buy W810i , as i heard too much +++ in it.
Pls suggest me if any other model has the same feature in NOKIA. as we all know that in asia only NOKIA has high re-sale valve than other brand....isn't??
Me again, I forgot to input my email address! I told ya, I'm totally hooked on this phone! hehehehe!
Sorry guys n dolls for not answering some of your q's, but coz of this amazing phone...I'm totally hooked! :o)
@Auz, maria, Roger Torres, Ishuania and maybe others...yes I have d'lded plenty of music videos on my 512MB card. Also can be played at Fullscreen.
When using the right software for converting any type of videos, such as 'Xilisoft 3GP Video Convertor' it will be able to be viewed on SE810i. After choosing the right settings as follows:
VIDEO: mpeg4, SIZE: 176x144, BIT RATE: 100 (for sharper frames, I normally choose 200), FRAME RATE: 15, if the movie is widescreen, experiment with CROP & PAD at 20 or 30 for TOP & BOTTOM settings, AUDIO: mpeg4aac, BIT RATE: 32, SAMPLE RATE: 32,000
These settings will give perfect results. I also installed a FULLSCREEN 2hr movie on my card! When installed in the video folder of the MScard, if viewed from the FILE MANAGER/VIDEOS folder, the movie can be viewed normally or MORE/HORIZONTAL settings. Also can be viewed in the WALKMAN/VIDEOS settings as normally, play then MORE/FULLSCREEN mode. All media can be shuffle or loop play! Also videos can be paused and frames be captured and saved or sent!
For those who want to know if the phone can play 30hrs of non-stop music, sorry I havent tried it out, yet :o) For audio lovers, did anybody know thar there is an equalizer settings: NORMAL/BASS/MEGA BASS/VOICE/TREBLE BOOST/MANUAL!!! So this replies to anyone about having low sound!!!
Camera is superb at 2MP simply said!
About themes and ringtones, I have installed so many I am lost! :o) For those who wants to change the Original Walkman Theme just simply log in www.zedge.com find the theme you like and install in the OTHER folder and then simply let the phone set it! I have not only got superb Technological Themes but also when the phone is in INTRO MODE the screen is ANIMATED, plus I got SCREENSAVERS that completes this marvellous cellphone!
Come on ppl try some settings, if you get stuck...simple reset! lol :o)
Enough of my details, if anyone wants to know more just email me. But please lemme get back to my phone, I just luvvvvvvv it!
