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.
W850's sliding cover is quite loose after a few occasions of usage and slights down very easily. No doubt the phone is quite good for some of its special features like its nicer design, "Mega Bass","4X Digital Zoom", "SVG Tiny 1.1", "Photo Light" & "Lights Effect" but as compared to the features in K800, W850 still loses out. Guys outta there, think carefully before you buy. Unless you're a music lover, then you go for W850. If not, for more advanced features & a better camera, pls go for K800.
ive been using the w850, and the sliding mechanism is great!!
Its a bit loose, but it won't break off easily. The mechanism is made a bit loose, but it ok. The sliding is really smooth.
Hey so far the phone looks prety good but im just wondering if you can play MP4's on it and what is the max memory card you can put in it. please e-mail me at Shaun_obrien1@hotmail.com or just post it
Wendy that is a good question, it the sliding mechanism of the w850i loses easily
I just want to know if your W850i can zoom in or out in 2 and 1 MP rezolution when the phone is in camera mode!!
Mine can zoom only in VGA mode :((((
I just got this phone and it rocks. Cool Theme and the speaker is very good. Much better than my previous N series Nokia phone. I have a choice to take the W810 but my friend is having it, and I didn't like the tiny screen, so decided to wait for this one. Am glad i did because the sliding really make it feels better than a normal Candy Bar phone with smaller screen. For me, camera is not important while music is, so this is definitely one for a music lover.
sorry to ask but is the sliding mechanism lose and tose it wear and tear easily
Look Guys dont be fooled ok i have been using almost all the major series of SonyE fones, currently i have w810i and k800i the pic of 3mp is really very good i f u put it into ur pc or on the moble its crispy and clear but the ppl who r saying the prints of 3mp r not good is bcoz the feature of nightmode is not used in k800i when the flash mode is on thus makng the pics a bit dark so try to take pics in good light or in day times i know ull witness the quality is far more better than 2mp try it ull see,i cant write the details as the things are a bit technical and it takes too much space to write and 4 u ppl to read so its the best i can do thnx
Hey guys v r using w810i n i as a user don't think much differnce rather than the slider... well still waiting for it to launch ...lets c...!!!!
