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.
Isn't it funny how some people have taken to making anti SE W810i posts but not leave a name ;)
Okay - i argued with 02 this morning
phoned them up and told them to pick up the 2nd Sony Ericsson W810i that i have had, they said NO ! they would repair it, so i said CANCEL my £60 a month contract, they then agreed to swap it, ha ha ha
i`m fedup with the annoying camera light flashing, and the volume output at Maximum is NOT loud enough, all my friends agree with me, AND my brothers basic £40 MP3 player from EBAY is louder and of Equal sound quality, my Nokia N91 arrives next week, am gutted now as if it had been loud enough i would have kept it, plus firmware on the phones auto update facility is still not available from Sony Ericsson.. oh well..
Heres to a crappy N91 camera quality, but at least the best music phone
Just got the w810 this morning. Everything wonderful apart from the flashing light problem. Looking at it in comparison to my k750 the colour of the diode is much brighter on the w810 and also it gets hot very fast as the k750 doesn't ... hmmm kinda makes me thing sony have put the flashing mechanism in there to stop the light overheating.
Cheers for the adice!
When for w810i in the end. Love it!
one things is the blank screen on power saver mode, keep checkin iti s switched on. Would prefer sleeping clock.
Do you know if you can get an Fm trans that isnt sony or that is powered via car cig lighter? Not sure about sony one as it uses phones battery
