I like this phone very much but:
1) When I turn on the flash light to take a picture, the light starts blinking hindering me from taking a picture. When I turn on the flash light to see in the dark, the light blinks again! This is so totally wrong and irritating!!
2) I think that the message alert should have come with a volume adjustment option. Somehow, I'm not hearing the incoming sms unless the phone is under my chin.
3) After 20 seconds in standby, the phone goes totally black, I look at it and I don't know if it's on or off! They could've at least made it gray if they want to save energy but totally black is too much! Or a totally black screen with a digital clock. A majority of people nowadays look at their phones in standby to see the time, but this is unfortunately not possible in w810i. Besides, if I have a missed call or an sms I would really like to see that on the standby screen just like in other phones: Nokia, Samsung etc...
4) I've had the phone for less than a week, but I heard that some w810i owners are losing calls because the phone has a software problem in receiving incoming calls. I think if this is true, then this is a catastrophy. A 500 euro phone that has such a problem is an outrage! Walkman and smart design I appreciate it all, but the phone has got to be 110% reliable. If some customers don't reach me on this phone, then I'm losing much more money than the €500 I paid for this Sony Ericsson.
"The phone has the same radio quality as the K750i, which is rather high. HPM-70 stereo headset is included into the kit, but in contrast to previous versions the earphones imply no rubber insertion for wearing on the neck. They are simpler and feature only thin wires. They both look plainer and transmit sound worse (subjectively the quality is lower)." -> mobile-review.com
To owners - Is this true ? If there is a difference what's it?
if anyone is familiar with youtube
go to youtube.com and in the search bar type w810 and the first result is the phonescoop video review for the w810!
Also I want to ask the owners is it true that the w810's phones are worse than the w800's because w810's don't have rubber or sometghing like that i read in w810's review in mobile-review.com
Thanks! The phone is the best! much better desighn,colours and keys than w800's maintainly and than k750's also. And little,but great new feautres.Only the price is the problem,but it will fall down.. I can wait.. The phone is realy astonishing,best replacement for my 3years old t610 :)
Hello all. I want to ask you is there an airplane profile-on turning on the phone to ask you what to turn on,onlu the walman,or the whole phone(as in w800). Thank a lot.
For settings I suggest you get them from the Sony Ericsson website, I got mine from there and they work fine, just enter your details like your contry, phone network and number and they will send you the settings instantly. Just go to www.sonyericsson.com and choose your country/language and then click on support and there should be a section of links for the settings to be sent. I hope this helps.
oh thank very much for telling me about the orange walkman button that i had to press that for the time to show on standby but i have another question isent the a way to show the time on standby like is does on the other sonyericsson phones with out pressing the orange button? and something else i have a problem with installing mms and wap setting in cyprus we send a msg to are phone company and they send us the setting when i press to install it says somthing about device mgmt.about SE and it cancel the istallation
It is true there are some software issues with this otherwise great phone.Its good to wait for a month or so before buying W810i.
i have just been told there is a software problem with this phone, so if you can wait a month it should be sorted, if you cant wait its your problem!!
Yes, I noticed that when my battery was really low the flashing light problem stopped; it's almost as if they've got it the wrong way round.
once again, i will say that the flashing light problem will occur even after a full charge or while charging. it doesn't only happen if it's under 3.5 bars.
i'm just waiting for a f/w release which hopefully will fix this problem.
I've also experienced the odd dropped call, but i don't know if that's the phone or just a ntework issue. I know others have complained about dropping calls on the w810i
I`m just lucky not to hasty to bought W800 coz SE release W700&W810 that`ll result drop the W800 resale value
Complete detail abt w810:
1)Very clear and bright screen
2)Gud battery life
3)Music amazing with hedphone(better than ipod)
4)Camera - 2 mega pix camera @ its best
5)many easy short keys
6)Best keypad SE ever had
7)Gud memory too
1)Speaker on phone not loud.Volume is very poor.(usually SE phones have gud speaker but this one...i dont know wht went wrong with SE)
2)screen goes blank after a while as if it is switched off
3)No lens cover
4)SE PC suite nowhere near nokia PC suite
5)Very few applications available for phone
6)Phone cannot be updated using ur pc
7)very costly( not worth tht amount(Rs. 21300 in India))
I will recommend k750i or w800 instead bcoz u get all features except 'edge' for very less price.Still the phone is very gud and nice.If u have money go 4 it
u wont regret....
the light problem is what SE set so you dont drain the battery. Under 3.5 bars of battery it will start flashing. With Vodafone you can get new firmware updates to fix this problem but i dont know when they will be released.
theo: I believe the reason they did this is because it is a power saving feature. You can view the screen with the clock etc. that you are talking about by pressing the orange walkman button while the phone is on standby after about a minute.
