Oh viperchild, 3250 is the best for sure, the best smartphone in the world (only in your tiny world).
40 tones, 64 or 72 tones are valid only for *.midi files, for mp3 ringtones are the same sound.
The W810 have a screen with 176*220 pixels in 1,9 inch, this mean that the pics look fine than in a 2,13 diagonal with 176*208 pixels of the 3250 brick, in 3250 the pics in the screen are pixelated and colour rendition in 3250 is worst than in w810.
Your famous visual radio in nokia is a looser versus RDS radio in SE W810.
In terms of design, 3250 is the most ugly and brickest phone that i´ve ever seen, to say the true the design department of nokia fail to nokia fans with the design of 3250 brick, is really UGLY!!!
PTT is an advantage in 3250, but in my case i dont use it, i dont need it.
Buggy symbian S60 3rd is an advantage???
For the new version of the mediocre S60 old aplications arent compatible.
Quality sound in SE walkman phones are far superior to nokias express music series.
Quality camera in SE phones totally beat to nokias ones in all aspects.
And if you are happy with nokias 1st place in market share you remind that nokia gain market share in budget segment, and for shure 3250 dont sell more than w810, 3250 simply is a mediocre bulky phone with the worst design.
Hi again. Is there a possibility with w800 to open the new equalizer theme from w810? The screen pixels are same. Is there any oporunity of that? Tnx
How come the only person here that has a major problem with the w810i doesnt even own one?
As for me, i used to be a Nokia owner and love my new SE as do strangers on the street/bus/restaurants who actually stop and stare at my good-looking phone!!
Viperkid, you're the only one here horribly complaining about the phone. Other people mention the bugs, say their opinon quickly and go on about their business. We understand that the phone has a few bugs, but none of them are going to make you terminally ill, or kill you. They will not hunt you down and kidnap you. We understand that you are very biased with your opinions about the W810. We understand that you seem to hold some sort of grudge against SE also. We understand your anger. Please take it elsewhere though, thank you.
You post a news story about Nokia and say it's why Motorola and Samsung are beating Sony Ericsson? What a strange world you live in. As to your "only 40 channel polyphony" most people use MP3s for ringtones now days so that doesn't even matter. And most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a 64 and a 40 channel melody anyway.
"unable to save 3 office nos, 2 mobile nos, 2 home nos etc" - Why the hell would you want to?
"No visual radio" - Wel duh given that visual radio is a Nokia invention and is not that widely supported. One station here in the UK supports it according to www.visualradio.com and only one in the States.
"not speaker independent on voice dialling/memo" - Translate that into something that makes sense and we can debunk that as well.
"tiny screen" - A smaller screen with a higher resoultion means a sharper images.
"Not symbian OS" - Hell thats a good reason to get this phone.
As to the rest of your posts I don't have the time to try and translate them into something resembling sense. Maybe I will ask my 9 year old to try and explain your posts to me.
Did I ever state it has no problems? No I said mine has no problems. Don't try and put words into my mouth. As Mick has demonstrated this phone is so good people are willing to put up with the few bugs they have found.
Yes...lots of complaints, mainly about the same type of thing, and for me, minor issues.
I still love the phone and think it's the best one i've ever had (which makes sense really as I don't tend to upgrade to worse phones).
But I accept that the phone is not perfect still have some work to do with the firmware before I will be 100% happy with it.
wow, MANY COMPLAINTS!
my only complaint is the phone volume is not as loud as it used to be, even at max volume its hard to hear
Arj: (AMEN ur IRRITATED!)
when u change themes, the shortcut buttons revert to the default settings. Im having a DILEMMA as to surrendering it or retaining it as the bug is not so big a deal anyways.
Mick from oz:
my mate who bought the same phone has got the white screen of death..
re flashing light..out of the 4 of us, 3 of us have the flashing light.
v poor quality headphones in comparison to the quality of the phone itself.camera excellent but flashing light is terrile.sound rather muffled.battery life ok but to be honest wish id stuck with a nokia as keypad is much better
i`m fedup with the annoying camera light flashing, and the volume output at Maximum is NOT loud enough
Well I've now returned mine. I tried to use the handsfree last night and even at medium call volume the speaker crackled
"the flash light blink is not a bug....maybe SE design that to save batery....when u take a pic it flash...and the pic look good .." U
Umm...if you think that's not a bug, then you have very low standards. Why on earth would anyone want a constantly flashing light in there eyes when taking a pic ? And if you use it as a torch (which I used to do oon my old SE)..then it's just plain annoying. It's only a small issue for me as i don't really like camera phones and i don't need a torch that often, but lets not start making ridiculous statements about it.
Awesome... fantastic phone. Well, at least until the Nokia 6233 comes out & blows everything else away!
Well I've now returned mine. I tried to use the handsfree last night and even at medium call volume the speaker crackled - I then made the same call at near full volume on my K750 and the phone was fine, same network too. No idea if it's an isolated fault on mine or just a lower quality speaker.
Got no idea which phone I'm gonna go for now as I really did like the w810 but I'm determined not to go down the route of the k750 with 5 firmware flashes (the latest still has a bug) - especially not on a new phone.
I know the flashlight may seem like a small fault (and to some it will be) but try taking a picture in relatively low light and see how you cope with the constant flashing - not mention people who actually use it as a flashlight :s
Oh well...maybe if Amstrad made phones...:p @ SE
i m nokia lover.... but i m gonna buy dis.... dis is cool phone... i dont care wot ppl say bad abt dis phone..... #1 phone....
Does anyone have any idea when this phone will be released with a US carrier? I am in love with this phone and I'd rather not pay full retail if theres a plan discount. My contract with NextHELL ends next month (June), and I want this phone soo badly. Any ideas? Thanks...BTW...this is the world's most perfect phone, and I'm not just blabbering, I've done a lot of research on this phone. It's perfect for me.
i just bought the phone .....it rox!!!!!!!!!!!
the flash light blink is not a bug....maybe SE design that to save batery....when u take a pic it flash...and the pic look good ..
the cloak dont appear when standby mode...the screen just go black pitch... is not a bug also...read the manual and you will know how to show the time when it is pitch black.....SE W810i has no bug so far ....beside it is a better upgraded version compare to W800i or W750i
the w810 doesnt have Bluetooth v2.0 is has 1.3 or something..
but its a great phone..
wel,looks lyk dere r 2 joeys here huh!!wel at any rate,i got da w810i aftr much debate as to get da w900i or w810i..i lyk it but yea,as a lotta pl mentiond bfo tht dis fone's ringtone volume is pretty low compared to da previous models ov k750i,w800i n most definitely da w550i..n derez da flash probz as wel..besyds tht i think da fones a very gud lookin 1..my previous fones r
6)Motorola Razr V3
7)Nokia 7270 Black
im currently usin a Nokia N70 and SE W810i..im a cell fone addict,lol..coz i bought these 10 fones in 6 months!!
gona lay off fo a whyl till sumthin really head-turnin or eye catchin sho'z up!!latr!!
it says that the phone can play mpeg4 format videos films etc. I would reccomend downloading some software from the internet to convert the film you want into the compatable format.... so the answer is yes :D
My opinion is I would go for the w810 - even with these fixable niggles it's an awesome phone. Even tho Sony ericsson can be a pain to deal with in terms of updates etc the phone is still the best I'd found in my recent search for an upgrade from my k750.
can some one tell me what the video resolution is. and which one should i get w810 or v3i with itunes or nokia 3250. i am soooooooo confused(price is no issue)
Just rung o2 myself - explained I was unhappy with the fault so they said I could return it foc and eitehr pick a replacement up from the o2 store or hav one sent - think I'll pick one up.
It's worth noting that if it is a problem with the diode getting too hot then a firmware flash is unlikely (but not impossible) to be the answer, and baring in mind how buggy SE updates have proven for the k750i I wouldn't hold out too much hope lol.
I think I'll definately got for another w810 when I change this one but I'll make sure it's fault free before I tke it home.
