Your wrong about the W810i. It only records video in 3gp format regardless if its mmc or high quality. only 3GP
It can play back in 3GP and MP4
Does anyone have this phone in the US using Cingular? Curious if picture messages (MMS) and internet work. Let me know. I've read a lot about people not able to use those functions with Cingular using unlocked phones.
Yes I admit the main thing which drew me to this phone is how it doesn't have a joystick. That was also the only thing I didn't like about the W800i. Still I think the W810i looks better than the W800i, I don't think white really suits phones, but then I guess thats only my opinion because many people think the W800i looks good.
I hope SE take the public's opinions into account and start making more good phones without joysticks.
Hey i've got W800i n tested this phone for a week.i directly compared it,W800i beats this.this fone has cheap feel to it.the orange Walkman button isn't really orange,kinda copper colourd,agen feels n looks cheap.
only good thing about W810 the removal of joystick!!
@Retrix in previous posts have persons wihtout that problem. But the main reason for this is - all of these problem phones are from the first batch. The second is much later because to fix the problem for market before send the phones. I'm sure soon will be firmware fixing the first batch's problem. I could'n find the exactly SAR value.. in the internet Manuels doesn't written,in the website too..
I have found no bugs with my W810i so far and I have played with it a lot.
As to the question about IM's I couldn't say as mine has the O2 software. I usualy get my phones from carphonewarehouse as their phones are always unlocked and unbranded but for various reasons I had to go with O2.
Just out of cureosity does anyone who has this phone not have the flashing light problem? Because I don't think I've seen someone say they haven't.
@Carbonize - Thanks. I also want to ask what can be used trough phone's Instant Messaging,i couldn't find any information. I guess at least ICQ should be used much easier with that IM,owners?
@Jay - Carbonize's explanation is right
Jay the people you bought it from possibly import them from China as they can buy them cheap in the Far East.
crazy_boy yes the headphones are black but as you have a standard 3.5mm headphone socket in the handsfree dongle you can use any headphones you like.
@nick - I recommend you w810,it's astonishing model. When i saw his pictures i fall in love with it. The phone is superb:)
To owners - Is realy the headphones in the package are black ? Are they different than w800's headphones? tnx
Hi,i just bought this phone online(onestopphone shop),and I am a bit confused about the handfree accessory is in black color rather than grey as shown in SE website,and the PC suite pack even has chinese on it.I am not sure is that a FAKE one or not?Does anyone got the phone like this?
looking forward to anyone's kind reply,Thanks!
The W810i will record video in either 3GP or MP4 depending on what you choose. If you choose high quality it uses MP4 but if you say it is for MMS it choses 3GP.
The phone is gread! I recommend it to all of you. It's perfect display,desighn and etc. =)
Wow, this W810i records video in MP4 format.. Im highly impressed. The specs say its 3GP but when i upload it to my computer is shows as MP4 format... :)
sorry to vince....
anyways i was really convinced to buy this phone until i saw pictures of the new sidekick 3!
i have fallen in in lov wiht it, altho its nothing compared to european phones, in the u.s. its like a bar of gold...
anyway i just wanna ask for your opinion on witch phone ....
o ya. viperkid. shut up
None of the earlier SE phones had as much bugs as this W 810i. Dont know what happened.
now u know what kind of products Sony Ericsson has! they release W810 without proper testing, caution and did NOT fix d problems b4 it reaches d shelves, wow, is dat wat u call quality???????? if i were u i'd rather return it and exchange it for 3250 or any other more reliable model! for me, SE is always NOT a reliable phone (i had K750i b4 but eventually i gave it to my niece bcoz i can't stand it!) yeah SE has great camera, mp3 player but when it comes to what a CELLPHONE is really USED for it just DISAPPOINTS bcoz cellphones are really made for COMMUNICATION! that also explains y SE is behind the mobile market share versus motorola and samsung and that's a FACT! even SE makes a 5mpx CCD sensor walkman and cybershot labeled phone but if it has stupid BUGS and its NOT easy to USE with low signal, weak earpiece, screen becoming white, all black screenSaver, nonSTop flashing and d list goes on its FUTILE, SE will just keep on loosing market share!
To nick (VIDEO REVIEW)...
That's not an actual video recording done with the phone but a real FLASH video!!! Where did u see the actual video on youtube.com???? Which one? Which one?A nyone knows?
