i guess this particular model in sony will be a big hit.... the phone is really good.. i really like it till now its been 2 weeks now.....
Mukul Dudeja do you think that the crackling on the screen is something to worry about, i know it doesnt happen all the time but ive had the handset for a week. What do you think?
I bought the phone a couple of days ago, and I've seen the crackling effect on the screen when i get the phone out of standby a few times. But it doesn't happen all the time.
The phone itself is excellent, but I wish the keypad were little more ergonomic, because I have large fingers, and find the key spacing a little close for optimum comfort. Also, when will SE start incorporating radio into the phone, rather than in the handsfree? I had an S700i previously, and thought this was a pretty obvious rectification that should have been done by now.
Also, I'm using the 1Gb card that came with the package. I've heard, and read that 128kbps mp3 audio is almost CD quality. Don't know whether it's true or not, but close to 80% of my music is ripped at 128. And if I convert to 96kbps AAC, I get the same audio quality on both my Altec Lansing MX5021 speakers attached to my laptop, as well as on the W850i. That's saying something!
oh and when i slide it open does anyones screen go a bit funny? like a bit crackling looking? If you know what i mean.
Had this phone nearly a week now and im loving it. The slide mechanism isnt as strong as my old handset (sasmung D600) which worries me a bit but im going to look after this one a lot better. I havent got a clue how to to album covers for the CDs. Got 12 albums on it so far and its still working fine.
The camera is pretty mint better then my other 2mp camera. Although im getting use to using the camera. Battery life has been great so far. Only charged it twice and i listen to music on the way to work.
u can only zoom in VGA mode.
My w850 sliding is now a bit loose, thanks sony.... for ure help about how to use the sliding, so i should be carefull so i do not damage it some more.
K800 and W850 are almost the same, only difference is the music interface and the camera interface and multimedia features,.. K800 has only better in camera department but also has a good music player, W850 has also a good camera but not as good as Cybershot in K800... but rather tend to be better in music due to the walklman interface, higher memory card and light effects and a more sporty design... but all in all both are SE's Best and leader in non-os phones...
G8 phone overall, but Im exping some problems with the phone registering calls,I brought it back to the service centers and they told me many are having the same problems too, for a week they still havnt got a way to fix it. Its quite serious ya know..any1 else having this problems?
its true that the camera is not as good as the k800i, but after all this is a music phone not a camera phone. I think people shoudnt compare this to k800, i've used both phones, and i think they're all great. This phone has alot of functions that are new, such as new version 2.0 Walkman, music visualiztion, good camera, and my favorite, the orange light effect that dances along the beat of the music, it is so cool.
hello can anyone tell me if w850 has a software problem???cause i am still deciding between N73 and W850 thanks
i bought tis phone 2days ago, is was a g8 phone.Da sound quality was g8.I like tis phone. But y i can't use the zoom features when i using camera? but VGA can. Can anybody tell me hw 2 do it?
this type of board is fantastic for getting both sides good and bad. i've got a new n73 as an upgrade to replace my w810 and love it but i've stil got 10 days and i'm thinking about one of these if the nokia plays up. my last 3 phones have been sony ericsson and think there are brilliant easy to use handsets but the slider's not something i'm used to so if people are having trouble after a few days then yes i wan't to know about it.
there are 3 of us in this house that all work in the mobile industry and one that actually works for sony ericsson! yes we'll big up any sony ericsson handset but the same goes for any brand - if you don't handle it with care you can damage it!
the car door was an example of taking care of your device. it's times like this when i loose interest in gsm arena. it's clear that tony was making a valid point yet someone thinks it's adult to put some stupid input in and remain nameless. the whole point is this: if you don't take care of your w850i slider, it could become slack. if you can't understand the basics - don't buy the phone!
yeah why are you talking about car doors! its a phone not a car!!!
Laurence2k is kinda right. I work for Sony Ericsson in Europe and have seen the testing on hany handsets. 99% of the 'broken' sliders ARE user error. When using a 'push up' style phone people don't read the instructions. The advice is to 'gently' push the slide up with your thumb and not let go until it's fully open. There is a special ridge to rest your thumb on to do this. Every time you just 'flick' it up you make the system weak, over time this will become slack. Can you all honestly say you open yours correctly?! Do you just 'fling' your car doors open when you get in/out? Think about it.
bazza, fine, opinions it is then. everyone, in my opinion none of you should buy this phone, there is a chance you could get one with a faulty sliding mech. in fact, don't buy any phone, just in case it's not perfect. hey, just nobody buy anything then you won't have to moan online! guys, lets have constructive opinions. compare the phone to your last one or another brand. all the moaning is so dull!
laurence2k i thought this was for opinions? if people give their opinions on a product then others can get a good idea of what its like before they part with their hard earned cash.
so pls people if you have opinions, problems or love it let the rest of us know. it helps us make up our mind.
guys, there is no doubt this phone is fantastic but please don't get confused with phone error and user error! i don't know why some of you are online moaning about a broken slider! take it back to where you bought it. by law they will fix it with your manufacturers guarantee. nothing is perfect and things brake, don't waste space on here moaning about a problem you can fix.
