most of us are bein too bias...each single phone has its own pros and cons. we cant expect any company to produce a perfect phone. if they do, the market will be in trouble. for each single phone, they may seem to lack something but they are good in something. lets take se w850i and compare it nokia music 5300. w850i may be good in terms of music functions but lacks in terms of price. 5300, cheap and affordable + the ability to use different and interesting applications. come on guys....let us have an unbias mind. fighting and comparing brings nothing......think wisely.......
the slide on this phone is to sticky annoys me and the video (qcif) resolution is crappp...looks abit bad to...the walkman music player is good...i would rather have W810i W850i really isnt a a good phone...W810i is better the only differnces is bigger screen and AF ..on W810i..
Bought this phone last week because i'd heard really good things about it.
Played with it for a couple of days and gave it to my son, this phone does not even come close to the w810 i had previously and certainly no-where near as good as the N73 music edition i have at the moment.
the camera is rubbish and the sound is terrible compared to the two phones i've mention and the slider mechanism is, well flimsy.
All in all i would not reccomend this phone to anyone. If you want a walkman phone get the w810 far better all rounder than this heap of! no i'm too polite to say it.
For something much better look at the n73 music edition it's first class in every way music and camera functions are far better than the w850.
Shoot me down if you wish all you w850 lovers but i've had many sony ericssons t610, k700,k750,w800 and w810, i still have my w800 my wife has my old w810 and now my son has the w850 so trust me when i say they don't even touch the N73 Music Edition.
I have got this set since December... But I have got one problem might some of u ppl have faced which is when I call my hearing speaker's voice deteriorates and it also deteriorates when I am saying something.. It produces constant voice damaging sound to ears
yes @ penguin, my frends W850 flashes different colourz wen playin music: purple, blue-ish,orange,red-ish
penguin I may be wrong but I believe they stopped the multi coloured idea before production started and they went for the single orange light.
i brought this phone for about a month.. i found that the video seem to be blur... not as clear as w800 and others model... is that any problem... can anybody give some help... plzzz..
has any one got the version of the w850i that flashed DIFFERENT colours when music is being played? my orange lights just flashes but i have seen versions where the light goes blue, violet, red and orange.
any idea guys?
Its your perosnal choice Faddy. Use the compare function on this website. They are fairly similar but in my opinon W850i is better.
1) ROKR E6 is taller/wider/heavier but slimmer.
2) Same screen
3) ROKR E6 has a 3.5mm headphone jack built in, W850i has 3.5mm converter in box.
4) ROKR E6 has no EDGE or 3G which is very unusual, W850i has 3G.
5) ROKR E6 has a document viewer.
6) Neither camera appears to have autofocus.
As I said its your choice but I would go for the W850i every time.
me also from malaysia...
d u already get the 3G settings in ur phone??? d u upgrade ur SIMcard to the new 3G SIMcard??? which network provider u r using rite now. celcom or maxis???
This phone is great. yes it does support mp4. though no zoom for the 1 & 2mp resolutions, that's fine. main function of this fon is for music player though. it's very user friendly and easy to navigate. the navigation buttons are problems to those with big thumbs or fingers.video calling? great! i suggest you buy a crystal casing or if not a screen protector maybe since the casing is somewhat worry-free from scratches even when put in and out of your jeans. the slider is smooth and i've been using for 4 months already. it has not loosen up yet. if you're a text (SMS) addict then why not open the fon for a while and auto keypad lock so that the slider won't loosen up that easily. i only found one flaw with regards to the casing. the back part of the sliding (the metal part with the walkman logo) that is where i have scratches and i wonder how the fon get it. anyways cool fone. simple features. and what i love with this fone is multitasking. isn't it that great. really great for gaming! if you want more details, i'd like to help. thanks guys
n95 eh!? cheers darren88 ill wait and see wether its worth looking into when it finally arrives
i used to have the w810i and it is flawless...
i upgraded to w850i and i think i made a very good move. It's been three days now and endjoying listening to my downloaded music. However, I notice a bug (or is it in my phone only). in w810 press the first three letters of the name your going to call and wallah you get him. in w850 it gets the first letter but on the 2nd third and fourth letter i didnt get the name i am looking for.
can you help me?. i upgraded my service via the internet and still get the same response from my phone..
you can buy the memory sticks from computer stores and camera shops selling sony ericsson brand. just ask them about sony memory stick pro duo. i have already upgraded mine to 4 gigabyte and the phone still works well with no bit of drag.
monhopper the only phone I would leave this model for would be the eagerly awaited Nokia N95. Looks incredible just waiting to see if it has the typically slow nokia menus and freezes.
ive had this phone for roughly 3 months now and am already bored with it, am looking to trade it in for another phone, am looking at the moto ROKR instead or maybe an htc model
OMG finally my phones potential is released. I've managed to debrand and unlock it. Wow I cant believe how crap vodafone managed to make an awesome phone. Once all of the vodafone crap has gone its faster, beter colour co-ordinated & easier to use in terms of button setup.
ter is a zoom in da picture mode....mine can im sure urs can too..jus switch to VGA picture then should be no prob.....n i do agree on da slider...it wil get losen..mayb a bit...depend on how u use ur fon....acili 2MP is oledi not bad...wen i put into my com...da pic r quite clear....
to me dis fon is way better then 810...da design is gud...is classy...da camera is way faster...coz 810 hav auto focus...it kind slow wen takin picture....if like u wan2 take a movin thin...don even think of takin it wit 810....is not tat i sayin 810 is bad....it got it gud s wel...jus tat for me 850 is ahead of 810...
no u cant hang up a cal or go back to main screen by slidin it down...
it depends wat u like more...takin picture(k800) or u into music(w850)...
yes dis fon supprt mp4
