subri, 18 May 2009Hi all, i've been using sony w810I past 2 yrs. no doubt it is an amazing stuff. But i hav a... moreYou just need a new battery, as the old one is wearing down from use. I've experienced the same thing with mine --- reduced talk time and standby time.
i've been using sony w810I past 2 yrs. no doubt it is an amazing stuff. But i hav a few minor problems if someone can help me.
(1) the battery initially used to support 3:20 hrs but of late supports only about 2:30 hrs talk time on airtel (popular) network. handset (bought again after loosing first one) is jus 1.3 yrs old.
(2) while searching contacts, name does not filter letter by letter. Ex: to search name 'BOND' - with no ther name beginning with 'BO' - the damn thing cant find out even aftr typind all 4 letters BOND! i always search next name and then go up to locate BOND; how disappointing.. The sony tech support said the handset is designed to filter only first 2 letters which is false. there are many other names where the search filters by 3rd or even fourth letter. the problem occurs only for a few names i cant understand why.
Yet, I jus cant like any other phone now after using 810i. 2 mp camera with auto focus is fantastic, 1000 conatct storage is great, torch light comes very handy, surfing spped is slow but tolerable.
terrifc device!! ive had mine for almost 2 years now n its amazin! it can do everything! the apps are great cuz the options available n connection settings can be edited to perfection...the camera is nice 2mp, the battery life is pretty good, ive used it for as long a day and i mean it took a pounding n it really holds up:D i put a 2gb mem card so im loving the music player even more!:D
Are you sure you're talking about W810? W810 HAS autofocus and the price should be relatively small, due to its "age" (launched in 2006). Back in 2006 it was sold as high-end at 375-400 Euros, now it's in the mid-range class and shouldn't go over 150 Euros.
*Although not many mid-range phones have autofocus camera... But I agree it's a bit slow. The CPU is to blame
It's not better than K850, both in terms of hardware and software, why do you regret buying K850?
hi...i have this phone for 2 years and it works very well...my only problem is that the walkman, ringtones are also played there. Can this phone not to play the ringtones when you use its walkman because it interrupts me when listening to music? and another questions is that..why it is not already sold in the market...is there any problem about this phone.
i love this phone abt 1.5 years , this has good walkman sound, nice keypad and lovely display, but no auto focus, slowly camera and too much price, one of time this affected software, all phone come to market big price , bt after time go to law price, why!
and i sometimes regret not buying this phone in addition to my present phone.
hi. i don't own this phone (i have a k850, which i love) but i've been following this phone ever since its launch. this was my 2nd option if i had a small budget. i've recommended it to most of my friends and those who have bought it love it. no issues at all. great camera and sound clarity. intuitive UI and has a good feel in you hand. if you are still thinking of buying an affordable/cheap all in one, buy this phone without hesitation.
I really love this phone. I've only ever had one problem with it when it refused to start up due to a software problem. It was out of warranty and Sony Ericsson still fixed it for free. I'm getting a new phone in June (don't know what yet), but I might just hang on to my W810 until it finally packs up, although I think that day is still very far away.
Some answers: I bearly found it new in three stores in my city (the last ones on shelves) in november '08 and of course 3 diff prices. Bought for 112 Euros. It's an updated version of K750. I think it's worth the money, especialy the fact it has an autofocus camera (most Walkman branded phones today lack)
Once again: "Cybershot" and "Walkman" are marketing brands. A today midrange "Walkman" SE hasn't got autofocus (so, no good for me)
Both have same software, except that the Walkman has an updated media player, and the Cybershot has richer camera interface and autofocus camera (hardware).
By the way: W810 captures better pictures than K550 "Cybershot". W810 is easely tunable , so now (after some modifications) I'm quite satisfied with it. In my opinion its drawbacks are the lack of Java multitasking and slow 2Mp picture processing (viewing,zooming)
This is the best phone I ever owned. All the features are easy to use and pice it take are great. I found this phone for sale on the compusa website for $149.99 and shipping for only $1.99!!!!
I had this phone and i loved it.. I loved it so much that I through it against a wall to prove to someone on how unbreakable it was!! As it turned out I was right however was after an hour searching for it in the dark grass deflected into after hitting the wall! Anyway after that it was never the same again, it kept randomly powering off and I finally after being sent back for repair and to no avail, I decided to retire my trusty friend.. At first I was sure I could buy another one but to my dismay there was none to be found! Sony had stupidly decided to discontinue the W810 in favour of slicker and more trendier updated models. So after much concideration I decided to purchase the W910 being the closest in simularitly and value for price. At first, I loved it.. Everything seemed brighter and freasher. However after a certain amount of use (and no pelting off walls abuse) the phone started to somehow maunaully power itself off.. Jesus F**k Christ! So its either me or possible Sony Ericsson have a wee problem with "fauly i have the phone a year i want to power off manually so you'll buy a new phone from us problem""!!!
Ah well i'm currently back using my old W810 which feels better but still manually powers off now and then!! I'm going to search the interweb to buy the old tank again..
