Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I don't think so sweety. This phone is definitely one of the best. It is still at par with those of the new high-end phones currently released by Nokia and Sony Ericsson as well. I've been using Nokia N70 since 2007 but my SE W810i which is some months younger is better in terms of design, features and durability. The best SE phone out there.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970No its Not, theres worse phones out there.
W810i is one of the best there is!
Temmy, 13 Oct 2008Hey fellas. I totally disagree wit the person dat said W810 is better than Nokia N70 or N72. I... moreN70 is one of the crappiest S60 phones there is, yeah it might have Symbian and 3G but so what?
the S60 in N70 is soo slow! and it takes ages to loads simple applications like Messaging ...i mean wtf
and Nokia's being the best? Not in this case.
W810i was way ahead of its time.
Nokia tried but never got to the level of SE's brilliant engineering.
best fone ive ever had the only thing is when i drop it on the top it turns off but thats nothing the thing is indistructable
Hey fellas. I totally disagree wit the person dat said W810 is better than Nokia N70 or N72. I have W810 and N70. U can neva compare Nokia with any other. No matter what Happens,N70 is far better than W810. N70 is a symbian phone which makes it unique. It has video call with 3G while W810 doesnt hav any of this. N70 has better longer battery life. W810 is also a good phone in terms of mp3 music but i assure u 100% that N70 is the best. No other phone can ever beat Nokia phone. Kudos to them.
THis baby is amazing,u can copy paste on it like a smartphone,walkman player sound quality compares to ipods' and in some songs,ths babys' sound quality is much much bettr than the ipod,u can update ur firmware easily over the air;no need 4 a computer and a usb connection,the 2MP camera tops all the other 2mp in its range cuz of the autofocus,the screen though 176 by 220 pixels and 262k colours is as crisp n bright as hell and when compared to the n70,the n70 one looks like its 96 by 128 and @ 65k colours.THis baby is simply awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very intelligently designed & formed. I recommend this phone for those a few, wirh tan excellent tastes that never wears out. This phone is a phone for life.
Used the w810i for over 2 years before upgrading recently to w890i. Its a really good phone, stable and solid. Only had a rare crash or display error which resolved on turning off/on.
Fell off the table a few times while in vibrate mode and it flew out of my hand once when I almost tripped over something, and still working as normal.
Battery life is good, about 3-4.5 days while on for 24 hours with normal usage (some calls, SMSes, a little mp3 listening, playing some java games). Even after 2 years the battery life remains as good as new.
The flash and autofocus is a really useful feature, especially missed after switching to the w890i!
The camera lens should be cleaned with some care, there's a little layer over it that came off when I cleaned it a few times with a cloth, but the picture quality wasn't affected.
Picture quality is really good, even the night shots come out quite clear, but there's a slight delay after pressing the shutter in night shot mode so you'll have to hold it there for a moment else you would end up with a blurry image.
hi iam dilip 15 yer=ars boy from india.i had w810i for 5 months.it is the best fone,even compared 2 nokia fones.now i hav a n95-1.bcoz i wanted 5 mp symbian fone.when compared to 2mp fone even nokia's n70,n72,n76 get beated when compared 2 sony w810's 2MP camera.it is one of the rare fones with autofocus in 2 MP cam.becoz only less fones hav 2MP autofocus.the head phone effect is fantastic.so any1 who want 2 buy 2MP fones,i recommend to buy this.it can take excellent photos.but video capture is not that good,but median,due 2 15 FPS.
Hello good people?i got this baby a m0nth ago but da 0nly problem is whenever i download a file (jad) it tells me '0perati0n failed'i need games n stuff badly,wat do i do all good people???????????
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2008hi!Can anybody inform me about the programe I have to have in my computer in order to transfer... morewhen you bought ur w810 on your box its the cd with the software program to transfer all tha u want, u have to install this cd.
and then u connect the usb cable from ur cell to the pc and open the program to download all tha u want , from pics, videos, songs or themes.
the best phone that i ever had. i took the pictures of some of the most memorable moments of my life with the 2MP autofocus camera. no offense but i didnt find a better 2MP phone. listened to excellent music with the walkman during travel time from home to work. those earplugs where the best. put them in your ear and you wont hear anything else except whats coming out of them. i never had a problem with the phone may it be hardware or software related even if ive dropped it several times. i recommend this phone to anyone who wants what their money's worth. im planning to buy a new phone, but im keeping this as a second phone. im planning to buy a W890. because of this phone, i became a sony ericsson loyalist:)
The W810i is the best phone I have used.period
I was doubtful about its user friendliness compared to Nokia....but it proved to to be even better!!
Awesome sound with those ear bud type phones...quality is better than the iPod...Mega Bass is the greatest thing ever...
If you enjoy music on this phone...You'll never want an iPod!!
I use a 512MB MS pro duo card and the phone is fast even if filled to the brim...
Camera is ideal for outdoor shots... dim scenes show up a lot of noise in the photos...
A lens cover would have been ideal..as it does get finger smudges on it...
I get 2 days of battery life with heavy calls and music..
I got my LCD screen replaced recently as some dead rows of pixels appeared on the screen.I got it replaced in 2 days.
The phone does not read any songs from the MS card when switched ON in Music mode...Not a good feature...
W810i is the best affordable walkman phone ever!!
hi!Can anybody inform me about the programe I have to have in my computer in order to transfer photo and video from w810 to my computer?
i could say that this is the best handphone ever compared to my other 5 phones. i advice to those who wondering to buy, just buy this phone. its worth ur money.!
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2008i admire this mobile i am having it for 3years now think.... i have no problem with it but its... morewalkman phones dont usually have a flash function with the camera...if you seriously want those, id say go for a cybershot phone instead...i have a W810 myself...had it for 2 years and 6 months now...since april 07 i think...never had problems with it...im planning to buy a W890:)
