The phone arrived yay! Yep, bought it from UK, me being from Malta. Had it for 3 days and didn't let go outta my hands :0) WOW! What a superb model! I was so worried about some complaints, but finally after I decided to get it, I am 100% happy with it! I agree with Abhi about the FM radio presets. It would be more easy to switch to stations thro' the headpiece switch. As for the light, surely everyone who bought this phone found out that in MENU/ORGANISER/LIGHT one finds 4 methods for lighting...On for 1 min., SOS, ON and OFF! The menu is easy, Walkman superb, camera great, sound is loud enough even if played outside (and I have set it to 5 out of 8 level). So far, having the pre-production software as others said, I have experienced no major problems yet! SE W810i really rocks! I have taken it with me on buses and I have turned ppl's heads coz of it :o). Well done SE! I am a proud owner of a W810i! Hoping to update the software to get the latest version, thro' site. To those ppl who are still thinking on buying such a phone...u thought a hundreds times...now it's time to GO and GET IT! Keep posting valuable comments, thanks.
I wish it was possible to change FM radio preset stations using the switch on the headset which is normally used for answering calls. Cuurently, you need to use the keypad to change stations which is cumbersome especially if the phone is in your pocket. Does anyone have a solution for this?
The card u got from ebay is probably a fake one cos I know the fake ones drain the battery very quickly compared to the original. If you are not convinced compare it with the original sandisk card that came with your phone.
sorry meant to say in previous post, i was going to choose between this and the nokia n91 but went and had a look and my god how big and cheap looking is the n91. I've waited for months to see it and was immediately dissapointed sure great features great sound quality but it's bloody huge, cheap and tacky looking, symbian o/s, it has the smallest keypad in the universe and most important of all it's way overpriced.
Stick to sony ericsson people.
got my w810i a couple of days ago and got myself a 2gb card from ebay for £32 yes £32 arrived two days after payment, first class service.
my only concern so far is the battery life seems to go down pretty quickly in comparison to my w800, but i'll see what it's like after a few charges. Apart from that i'm pretty pleased just going to get it de branded and i'll be happy.
coooooooooooooooooooooolest i have ever used ints model..
gr8 quality compare to any other brands especially ..nokia
Cheers Phil - didn't see your comment. Still puzzled about the web stuff though
Can you play mpg videos on the w810i?
Can you also play videos from the web - like through windows media player or realplayer?
Thanks Lee :)
@Lee-i think W810 plays quicktime movie, anyone can confirm this?
I felt it myself the 810, it is very nice, camera is very clear, it's screen is very clear, you can't see the square pixels which observed in some other phone. But i'm worry of one thing....
Nokia phones have been tagged as lasting phones and they hardly spoil even drop on the floor many times.
Is 810 comparable to Nokia phones in terms of the shock "resistivity"?
Does anyone know how the phone can use windows media player or real player?
Was using web and walk but when trying to access videos on-line says it cannot do it.
Thanks - Lee (UK)
had the phone about a week now, really impressed with the sound quality it's excellent. takes really sharp pictures too compared to nokia n70.so easy to use. always thought i would stick to nokia's but this phone changed my mind.
@kvin - No it does not have a lens cover
@Don - The battery life is excellent. Several days even with normal use.
@Navneeth - the operator logo is just text. I think you are refering to the wallpaper iin which case simply upload the image to the phone and select it.
@James - Check that you have the backlight set to turn off.
