Commment on Nokia 3250 vs SE W810i
( viperkid vs arj ):
Well, W810i is not a smartphone so it's not accurate to compare the two phones. W810i's competitor would be the upcoming Nokia 6233 (you can check out the W810i review on mobile-review.com). Here in the Philippines, W810i is more expensive than 3250. W810 is currently selling at P20,000.00 while 3250 is at P17,000.00. But it doesnt mean that W810i is a better phone. Why?Here's the reason :
Nokia N70 is selling at P20k so it's not appropriate for Nokia to sell 3250 at that price range. Who would buy 3250 at P20k when u can buy an N70 w/ d same price?N70 has the same features with 3250 but with a 3G support. Next, W800i is selling at P16k (from P25k last December 2005). Who would buy W800i if Sony Ericsson would sell W810i at that price range?So they had to sell W810i at a higher selling price so not kill the sales of W800i. Now, since W810i and the highly rated nokia N70 are selling at almost the same price, who do u thing will win?Your guess is as good at mine. An smartphone with 3G support makes the difference. Sales of W810i is very slow at this moment because of a higher price range.
So that's it, I previously had W500i/K750i and i'm sure W810i has better music quality than 3250. No argument about that. Its camera would be the same case, it should be better than 3250. However, 3250 is a smartphone and u can put 3rd party applications which makes it more "classy". Design wise, i still go for W810. But with the price range right now of both phones, Nokia 3250 is a wise choice to buy.
What is it with people asking questions that are answered on the Specifications page? they to stupid to read the specs or to lazy to bother looking?
As it CLEARLY SAYS IN THE SPECIFICATIONS 'MP3/AAC/MPEG4 player'
Why SE WALKMAN mobiles having software problems?
Why W810i having too low volume?
Can W810i play MPEG4 files?
Please somebody tell me about it.
my software version is cx1250316 r4ce012 000000 . Is this the latest software for the phone? If any update is available plz give me the site address. I tried sonyericsson site but they say phone has latest version.?
The sound volume is too low
OK! OK! Also had d'loaded thro' cable, hundreds of real cool 'animated' themes. Fo all those interested try this site: www.zedge.net all for free!!! Great 'Walkman' animated themes in there and hundreds more!!! 1 final point...with the money I spent on this outa-this-world phone...I managed to save more money. If I bought a 2MP camera, an mp3 player, a voice recorder, and a good quadband phone, etc., I would have spent more than twice the money I did on this W810i!!!
Me again...I just had to post this. FACT: battery icon is empty and still playing my 6th video music file at 100% brightness and at level 4(8) volume!!! Ain't that an achievement in battery life?!?? Well? Got you all tongue-tied? Hmmm just had a 2nd low-battery warning and the phone just switched itself off. Wow! Can't believe the battery strength! Now since it's totally drained...back to re-charging it, for more entertainment! And now thanks to Xilisoft video convertor I packed not 100mps files @high bit rate, but 102 VIDEO 3GP files at AAC sound quality!!!! BEAT THAT! :o)
Had this phone for almost a month now (13th May) and didn't let go of it yet...it got me hooked! :o) For those who are complaining about the battery life, make sure you drain it totally before re-charging it again. This will extend your battery life for good! I only charged it 3 times for the past month and playing constant mp3 and video files just can't seem to drain the battery!!! Playing the videos with 100% brightness on!!! As for the camera, it has a a glass cover, so a lint free cloth will clean all dust and smudges. I will post some pics later on, from a 'Sting' concert and they came out smashing!!! yay! SE you made my life simpler! Thank you!
look, i've had many phones that havnt got lens protection.. never have any of them gotten scratched.. please be more generous on your comments on why u deliberately hate this phone
jacqueline: Press the w button and it will show the standby time and icons if u have missed calls or sms.
I just got this phone yesterday, and when its in standby it is just a blank screen but the book says is should show the time. Its doing my head in that I can't see if I've missed a call or txt without pushing a button - can you tell me how to change the standby - can't seem to work it out !!
try the latest firmware. My phone would occassionally drop out for no reason, even when reception was good.
Since i upgraded the firmware last week, it has not dropped out unexpectedly. Too early to say it's fixed for sure, but promising so far. The flashing light issue is also gone now.
I just got it, is anyone have same problem with my Cellphone? it's always disconect by itself, is it software problem or the cellphone?.Pro; good sound speaker, good screen, nice looking, safe energy, easy to connect with computer. Cons; reception not good, drop all the time, noisy navigate button.
Can anyone tell to me, what is the capacity of sms storage?? In my old 630 was about 70, in nokia 150, in samsung 200. Thanks :)
Yes confused me too
all I wanted to know was what is the reception like cos my other SE was crap compared to my Nokia.
But the w810i is certainly featured packed which is why I like it
Well that post certainly confused me. Telephone companies use one frequency not two. This phone, like many others, is quad band so should work in almost every country.
hey guys check the frequancy on the t610 or w 810i and you are gonna notice theires 1 missing .Wierless companie use usally 2 frequency so youre t610 do nat have a signal it's normal you do not have the secound frequency the for this area call servise provider
Man get a 2 or 4 g memorycard memory stick duo pro and you have a 512 in there that cn hold 100 songs max do the math !
