This phone totaly no need to buy ...is expensive !!! No edge funtion !!!
When are they going to do a review on this handset!?!?!? Its already out, i want a review before i upgrade to it! Other than that, is the walkman loud when listing to music with headphones??? xx
yeah how much was the 2gb mem card? i have used half of mine but not been compressing the files!
Watin to get da phone cant wait can any 1 tell moi if the phone has a video player
Woops, slightly bias towards the W810, but forgot to mention that both phones have dedicated loudspeakers which you can even hear in a loud place (ie. nightclubs or for Canadians the Eaton center).
I've only hear the 810 in this aspect, but I do think that the 850 will have greater quality with it's megabass feature and speaker position/design.
Also, does W850's 900 band work as well on the 850 band?
And if I've forgotten anything in compairing the two W-series' please add.
If anyone's compairing this phone to the W810i, 810's better.
The 2.0 Walkman software upgrade doesn't have any specific complements from reviews and from people who use it and the navigation on this phone is slightly more needy to get used to. As well, this phone does not have AT though the larger lens makes up for that, I'd trust quality over physics anyday.
Another thing is that this phone just doesn't seem as appealing in either colors unlike the 810, in my view.
The only added is the special sliding design and vox-bar that lights up under the gold/silver embelm near the screen.
3Gs an added as well by having the cabability of the 2ndry cam VT function.
The EDGE tech on the 810 runs at the same speed and for Canadians, have better reception with the 850 band. Plus, they're ready to have the same call quality with the 900 band cabability too.
Tell me if I'm wrong on any part, because I'm still looking and debating on getting either the W810i or W850i.
(Also, the SE website for US/CAD shows on their phone roster [not their 'click here for details and features page'] W850 is official for release)

You can't compare this phone with samsungs. I've had samsungs for years and thought they were very good. Samsungs go for the looks whereas SE tend to go for functionality. This is my 1st sony ericsson and I must say I am not disappointed at all, in fact, I'm impressed. The sound quality is second to none. Yes, it would be nice if this phone was slimmer but would that compromise what's inside the phone!!!
what were SE thinking of? they have to do something about the size if they are to get a share of the slide up market.compare this with D900 which is 30g less!
Still waiting for a response as to when this phone will be available in South Africa.All the positive comments about this particular handset has got me wanting it so bad.Please assist urgently.
more comfortable to look at than any other..i like the color, size and the slide thing..if you love music and games ..buy it,,
It doesn't say on the spec but like the w830 this phone also comes with a free 1gb memory card.The phone is a bit ugly and feature-wise it's virtually the same as w810i but its a slider.
anyone here actually has this phone? can you tell me about the video quality? on both record and playback, any comment?
I forgot to mention, I've just bought a 2gb memory card for this little beauty as I've almost filled the 1gb that came with it! Have you tried out the track ID function yet? It's great isn't it?
I'm sorry, I don't know when the express covers will be available, if they are available at all! I'm trying to visualise how this phone would look and I'd probably just stick with the cover it came out on. I've got the gun metal grey version which is ok. I quite like the look of the white ones but I turned a white one down because I thought it might get grubby quickly. At least with black or grey, that won't happen! My hubby has the SE P990i and he loves that. It was his 1st SE. I'm getting my son the new SE W300i for Christmas. That is the flip version of this walkman. I've had a LOT of mobiles over the years and this 850i has proven to be the best yet, so that is saying something! Good luck with yours.
