Hey i was thinking about getting the w810i but also thinking about the sony ericsson k800... i dont know which is better... i like the looks of the w810 but the k800 has a 3.2mp cybershot camera.
Anyone have any sugestions?
As posted in the "Reader Comments" section:
(sorry for the duplicat post)
Just got the w810 two days ago. Only made two calls and one text message because I'm still using my previous phone - An LG 4010. Traded in an Audiovox SMT5600 (iMate SP3, etc) for the w810 because the 5600 was giving poor recption. Also, that damn 5-way button was a pain in the... er... neck. Did like the text message confirmation feature of the 5600, though. Wish the w810 had it for regular txt and not just for picture messages. Also, I'm not too excited about the choice of ring tones. I set mine to the "Ringlord" ring tone. Would rather have something like the "standard" ring tone of the SMT5600. I do think the "Ravi" and "Hong Kong Action" ring tones in the w810 are kind of interesting, though :-}
I find the buttons a bit difficult to "feel" properly. Especially the two un-down buttons on both sides. I also have difficulties using the volume buttons. Perhaps, once I've used this handset more often I will become more comfortable with the buttons.
I like the appearance of the S-E w810. It seems to have a lot of cool features. I used to think "what's the point of getting a phone with camera, music player, etc." Hence, my previous handset is the LG 4010 which is a basic phone with minimal features in a neat, slim, flip-up design. The w810 is a major contrast to the 4010 and I'm pleased with that.
Can anyone provide a link to a photo of the (limited edition?) white version of the w810?
As for removing the SIM - Yes, a difficult task, indeed. TIP: Use a wooden toothpick to lift the edge of the SIM as you slide the opposite edge with your thumb. Lucky for me, the SIM I'm currently using has a bit of laminate lifted at the edge. So, I use it as a "handle" to lift the card for easy removal ;-]
I'm hoping all goes well with the w810 because my service provider may not offer another exchange. I've tried one Samsung P207, two Audiovox SMT5600s, rejected a Blackberry 7100g... Don't want to push my luck - They'll probably tell me to take a hike :-D
Anyway, great site. I appreciate all the effort put in by those responsible for this site and it's participants. The reviews are very informative. Thanks to all! (especially my service provider ~heh heh~)
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)?
