absolutely perfect, without disturbing sliding cover like 750 and cooool black color, forget to see this phone scratchless...it has got every thing... nothing to say more about it....
i totally disagree about.. nokia only can give/offer mediocrity and/or average of everything (e.g. sound quality, processing speed, screen colour/pixel, build, video, bluetooth, interface, etc, etc) that is completely untrue! in fact, how can boogie and ryanloh say those baseless, biased and as i may say, illogical comments about nokia especially when W900 first became available in the market w/ d price of $900++ with dat amount of bucks, u'll not find WLAN feature, and offer only 320 x 240 screen resolution against d upcoming N80 (which will b on d same price range, [apparently and definitely, cheaper than W900]) give WLAN, offer you 352 x 416 screen res w/ symbian 9.1 OS an added bonus! also, another example, (for others who might say im biased cuz i compared W900 to a smartphone and say they're not on d same segment blah blah even if W900 is relatively more expensive than N80 plus d fact dat dey may add 'N80 is not even out yet blah blah') 6280 is definitely cheaper than W900 and give you virtually same set of features and i know for a fact that it can capture/playback videos on VGA (640 x 480), CIF, etc. resolution compared to the inferior 320 x 240 (QVGA) encoding/decoding found on W900. now tell me who offers mediocrity and/or average performance on a majority of features on a cellphone. all i can say is SE just offers you so-so phone features (e.g. y a majority of their phones can't show SIM & phone memory [on phonebook] at d same time, store only 1 entry on a field [lyk 1 mobile, 1 fax, 1 home, et al under a name]; press a lot more of 'more' softkey or down cursor in reading long messages compared with nokia; and only play around 10 seconds when a mp3 file or d like was set to a msg alert which will lead to delayed replies (probably cuz 10 sec is a bit short to notice right away a msg was rcvd). btw, a friend of mine had K750i and he said when rcvng/making calls, he hardly hear d one who called or he called even the earpiece volume is set to max. dat's wat i call "so-so phone" features! oh b4 i forget, regarding build quality, a nephew of mine had W800, after he dropped it (he's around 4'8") from his hand to d floor, the auto-focus went nuts and resulted into fugly unfocused images, now he's back to his more reliable motorola E398. now let's talk about screen colour, nokia and panasonic had introduced models with 16M colour screen (e.g. one of d e-series; in panasonic (VS, MX & SA series), i don't know with Sony Ericsson.. now somebody tell me who/gives mediocrity and/or average features on a mobile phone..
Although it only has low internal memory, it comes supplied with a 512mb memory card - and it seems that having smaller on-board memory but making up with it with inclusive cards is an effective way of keeping the nice small dimensions but still leaving the user with plenty of memory. Lets face it, it's not a major prob having a memory card rather than internal mem is it????
The battery life is lower due to the inclusion of EDGE. If you switch the EDGE off, you should see an increase in battery life.
Camera cover I guess was seen as a non-essential as the shape of the camera surround will eliminate lens damage. I'm sure cost and weight were considered also when SE decided to omit the lens cover.
No difference - same phone. SE website calls it the K750i, GSMArena calls is K750. T-Mobile call it D750. In China its the K750c. Same phone.
how come this phone only has 20 mb built in memory while the k750 has 38mb built in? and why is the battery life on stand by 50 hours shorter!? plus where the hell did the camera cover go? i guess i am asking tough questios of the w810, but these questions need answers
Yeah i agreed with boogie, ethan it seems like u not like any of sony phone at all since u say even w900i not good... boogie is right nokia only give u average everything like sound quality, processing speed, screen colour/pixel, build, video, bluetooth, interface, etc, etc...
Yeah symbian is a good plus for nokia but it doesn't mean everything not like sony, they give good quality everything that i mention above~!!! expecially e interface cause nokia interface really sucks n hangs alot.
I'll can proof to u that sony is e best anytime~~~!!!! 6680.... erm????
This phone is stunning the feautures are great a pity though that the camara ghasn a slide to protect it but the photo quality is spectacular.
I have to agree with boogie. Not to mention the battery life. I bought the K750i a while ago, and I was in doubt wether to get the K750 or the 6680, as I wanted a hi-quality multimedia phone. However, I just noticed the W810 and I'm considering and upgrade.
no offense ethan, but you seem to be overrating the 6680 yourself. sure it offers lots of functions, but all come in mediocrity. so-so mp3 player, so-so cam, so-so gaming function...and so the list goes on. if you're ok with not-so-satisfying functions then you're good with your nokia. but at least not for me though :)
i think all of these walkman phones are overrated (motorola, sony ericcson) if you are considering getting one of these i would suggest checking out symbian os phones because i had a sony ericcsson the sold it and got a nokia 6681 and i us it as my mp3 player, video player, gamboy(super goboy app)
and i comes with real player and you can download a bunch of other stuff
Really i do'nt have any of sonyericsson phones but i hve pal using the phones i really like it there function superb the design is cool all smooth touch if i will buy a phone surelly i will go get Sonyericsson w800i
Does anyone know if this phone support chinese text input? if no, how could I get it?
it would be better if they made the screen resolution to QVGA, maybe SE still does not have the technology and/or capability to do high resolution screens in a smaller surface/size than what is found on W900 (apparently Samsung, Nokia and others can do it [e.g. D600, 7380, 7370 et al). i hope SE can still add more "walkman" features lyk being able to record FM broadcasts, play more music formats especially wma and perhaps an AM tuner would be a good bonus. not to forget d ability to play more than 10 seconds (after rcvng a SMS, etc) when message alert is set to a mp3 file and d lyk (its kinda short, which often make u not to notice a msg was rcved particularly in noisy environments, dat will lead to delayed replies). another flaw of SE phones that i think should have been fixed a long tym, being able to show SIM card & phonebook memory simultaneously! if in any situation those improvements were made, maybe i'll go back & purchase once again a SE phone otherwise it's not worth it (for me). oh, symbian OS, another big factor and important thing! peace out! by the way W810 is going to be available by March 2006 in Vodafone, even earlier than N80.. here's d link:
Today I played with W810i(test unit). Great phone, but they changed the appearance of the main screen, of icons...my W800i looks more friendly.
btw, forgot to mention, i listen to music ALOT, though i hear the e2 has good sound as well.
my mum has the w800i, and i hear this phone is mostly the same besides a few things, and im deciding on this or the ROKR e2.
so far its... SE W810 Vs Motorola ROKR e2
im not a 'fanboy' of any mobile phone company, they all can be as good or as bad as each other. so anyone help a bit with my choice, cause atm, it all comes down to $$
I would like to know if SE W810 is supirior to W800.Can I install programs on Sony Ericsson phones like NOKIA?Will I be able to use the Mp3 player of W810/W800 in an aeroplane?
