I had this phone for 3 years or so, maybe 4. Cost me about 350 euro if I'm not mistaken.
I loved it and it never broke on me, but the headset you had to use since there was no headphone jack broke like 4 times because I used it as my main music player.
i love this phone.. loud and clear. but the unidirectional is easy to crack. unfortunately, just used it for a year. got stolen. :'(
Bought this phone once released, I really loved it but it only lasted for 1+ year :(
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2014Do you know where you can buy one? (I know its discontinued but i want a second hand)on aliexpress
Still working fine since I bought it from 2008, speaker is loud and clearly, my love! Light crack on the control butons but does't make any function problem. I'm now using it as a backup phone, and it work smoother than my LG G2 (on basic function, of course).

Hi to all! Sony Ericsson W850i can support memory card of 8Gb capacity. I successfully added 8Gb micro sd card memory with a memory stick pro duo adapter and it works like a charm!
This mobile phone is a brute of a phone! All the basics covered including the infra red which is a rarity these days and in true sony walkman class! It may seem to many to be a period piece but i beg to differ. In this day and age where costly androids galore with less than half a day battery worth this one has a battery stamina of a great champion. Battery lasts a good 3 days of moderate 2 hours usage paired with a blue tooth headset device. A mobile device is as good as its battery ... i can't agree more.
sony Ericson w850 is well choice but now after few years my plronblem is :
speaker is ok but not hearing the voice of caller .
should i change any part of it ?
i use it as in write this comment....what lovely phone...Just the battery power is below par.. Nice phone 2truly..will have been better if tit had a wlan.. Good job Sony..
it's awesome bro. i bought it in 2012 at Rs.1500 and i m proud to have mobil like this.....
TRUST ME AND BUY IT AS FAR AS POSSIBE
touchscreen - no
android - no
JUST LIKE IPHONE
This was my first ever phone that I bought with all passion (to gift it to my GF and I gifted she felt very happy and respected it the way I do, and I still have it :-) ) this was long back in the year 2007 during that time Walkman phones from SE were symbol of MUSIC lovers, after this one I bought many SE phones W700, C902, K850, Xpreria X10 (I still have all of them :-) yep in working condition) all these phones have set a trend in the market where competitors were busy trying to impress with phone models and features just to put on their specifications but are not worth experiencing, now best points about SE W850 are 1. Its ROCK SOLID 2. Walkman is easily accessible 3. Camera quality is too good (Yep I agree autofocus would've been an added advantage now comeon SE has a clear 2 seperate segments to concentrate on music and pictures - Walkman and Cybershot phones). Anyways the only 1 other thing what I have observed in SE walkman phones when compared to other music phones is battery backup but this is what I say 'whats the use of basket full of apples when they are not tasty' this is what happened in earlier days (non-android days) with other brands, they had every feature what SE has infact more than that but to what extent is the user delighted with these features ? I am not saying this just because am a big fan of SE but I have closely observed other phones and their users too. Anyways users like me will definitely miss those old SE phones. Now its all ANDROID, ANDROID and ANDROID ofcourse before SE released its first ANDROID phone I was afraid if it was not actually adopting google's O/S like other brands especially Nokia but thanks to SE's panel members who made their minds to move away from their proprietery O/S to Android which is a huge hit ofcourse SAMSUNG is ruling the market but the next best thing is SE and Nokia I really feel pity as they were market kings once upon a time now no one goes for them I mean atleast users who want a phone more than just to talk.
