Adrian, 01 Jan 2009I said "if I don't press a button I have no idea someone has called or texed me while not look... moreof course it doesn't have a backlighting option hence the light sensor above the screen. It doesn't need one. And if u can read messages on ur K700with no lighting then good for you but this is not the K700...this is the W810. There's even a review (if u haven't noticed before) to read and find out all about this phone. And u might think I dunno what I'm talking about but I do...I had 2 of these phones.
Legendary phone. Had it for over 2 years now, dropped it, lost it, found it, dropped it in a pint of lager, dried it, switched it on again and still working. Beautiful

Detailed explanation: This menu doesn't exist: Menu> Settings> Display> Light> On/Off/Automatic/Power save, like in my previous K700, but even if it were, it still would be useless, because, when the light goes out, you can't see a thing on the display (in my K700i with display light set to 'off' I could even read messages). And I don't think it's a deffect, I fear it's factory design. I guess it's for the "glossy" mirror-like look like in other phones. In some SE reviews on gsmarena they state "no indication of missed calls" and this may be it...

I've had two of them dnd I got no problems with them. In fact, upgrading the firmware was the mistake I made. While i got sweeter night snapping, the phone would just die spontaneously but not to frequent and also the camera's autofocus seemed to need a pair of glasses. The battery life was also cut in half. My W810 had become a pain to use...and my ass hurt bad enough to start with. But your phone...that's a wonder. All my buttons worked just fine. And that part about the radio working without the headset...if the radio stayed on after u unplugged it you'd surely get reception but I seriously doubt that it'll be usable without the antenna (headset). So in this perspective the radio not working without the headset (which is totally understandable and expected) is definitely a software prohibition. If u wanna know about flashing u can visit www.se-nse.com
You may call me a tech freak or you may tell me I'm demanding too much, but although it has many features and some bad points, I have a question: if I modify it's software will at least some of the drawbacks improve or dissapear?
Now the drawbacks that keep me from saying this phone is great:
1) if you don't press a button you have no idea someone has called or texed you while not looking at the phone. I hate this the most :((
2) verry slow (3 seconds) when displaying pictures made with the camera
3) little space for SMS (but this can be solved)
4) the main screen left button lacks functionality. in K700i it was More, and when dialing something it displayed a list of options instead of just 2 in W810
5) very big lag when in Walkman player->Tracks and you hit "play". it takes up to 2 minutes until the track plays (some bug...)
6) EMS has ABOSLUTELY NO text formating (bold, italic, centered, small, big etc)
7) radio can only work with headphones (this is a software prohibition, I demonstrated on my other SE that radio works without headphones)
So, does anybody know about software modification (or flashing) and which problems can be solved? Thamk you verry much!
it is a great phone but it has some problems . it is just great !!!!!
ravi, 29 Oct 2008Hi,
How much memory stick of 2gb\4gb will cost for w810i? Which brand is good?
i saw your post and i'm curious whether you've bought 4GB card.
so you made any further checks on it? is 4GB working with w810i?
please do reply.
SE has made this same phone at least 50 times and some people still get all excited about it haha, its always the same features and design with SE.
rohan m, 29 Dec 2008i think the se w810i is jus lame and the speker is to soft basically,it is real crapNokia's are more 'cheap' with their cheap plastics, SE's are Built SOLID!
