Has anyone figured out the 2 buttons at the top, either side of the video calling camera ?
THIS FONE JUST CAME IN TO M'SIA...the 1st model is now in ampang..the price is more then i thought..i think its nuch better i buy K800 coz the price is much better lower then the w850..also it comes with the 3.0MP camera + 3g...hahaha
hi there, can any one tell me if the slider is spring loaded or a manuel slide up and down.
will tom tom be compatiable with this fone even thou it isnt a smart phone?
dont worry mate i had an ericsson and lost it so had to get samsung (which i have had before) and ericsson's are far better
No problem at all. I've gone from a K750i to now having this phone. The video mode was much better previously, with the shortcut as 'Up' on the joystick. I've put this shortcut on this W850i the same, it makes life easier watching videos I think.
Another issue while Im here is the 'Face Warp' application. This is fine taking a picture, but loading a picture taken earlier is a nightmare. Its like trying to scoure through loads of blank files which takes forever. Anyone else having the same problem ?
Thanks for the tip with the video player. It does feel stupid that the video player started via file manager has less functionality than through Entertainment.
With the editing me the bookmark it only fails if i keep the same spelling in the title and change capitalization. Like ''gmail'' to ''Gmail'', and yes i sent the problem details to SE.
got my 850 this morning..a little chunkier than expected but the menu keys are driving me mad they are hard to press. so far i dont like the menu system as with samsungs they have earier shortcuts rather than scrolling through the menus. personally im not 100% on ths fone but ive got 2 weeks 2 play with it n i might change it
I have had my phone 3 days now, and have managed to use the Video OK. If you go into 'Entertainment', then use Video player that way, you can FFW and REW by pressing the left/right buttons. This works better in Portrait mode.
Also, I have tried to edit one of my saved bookmarks and this works for me. Try letting SE know, they should be able to help.
As for call not disconnecting when slider closes, thats a damper on the phone in general. This is basic SE, why not use this feature ?
Send your bug discoveries to SE, then hopefully they'll look into it and release a firmware update. I am also very annoyed that closing the slider does not end calls!
this phone is still not officially available in india!!!!
as of now sony is officially goin to release only w830i(donno when) in india and not w850i!!!! :(
nice looking, fancy theme, nice slider,
nice direction pad.........
but worst of all....SUCKY 2 mega pixel camera
equipped wif a 2 mega pixel camera.....
it somehow is blocky n is a very ugly on screen
dunno about putting it on comp tho...
Having used the phone for a week now, I've found one bug and one annoying feature.
The annoying feature is the video player. It's rubbish. I put a film onto the memory stick, and then saw how bad the player was. The picture quality is great, but the only functions the player has is "play" and "stop". No pause or fast forward/rewind that I can see... No use at all.
The bug that I found is that you cant edit bookmarks in the browser. When I save a bookmark then later go back and edit it, it always says memory full (even with 16Mb availabel internal)
Try this... Create a bookmark called "gmail" address "www.gmail.com", I then edited the bookmark to be "Gmail" (capital G). The phone said a bookmark exists and to overwrite, then after confirmation is always says memory full. It would be interesting to see if anyone else gets this?
Other than that, excellent phone.
Went into store in UK today to see a real working version, very impressed with this phone. Was told it was only available on 3 or Vodafone, yet it is available through the Orange website?! Now have to convince Orange to let me have it as an upgrade! Originally, ordered Samsung D900, very let down, seemed poorly contructed, not a fan of the new Samsung menu system, bring back the original set up please!! Sent the phone back after about 2 days.
Is this mobile compatible with a MAC computer to donwload music in it?
