ok guys, just a bit of sharing here. I used N70 and K750 now, i used to only use K750, but then i got a good offer on 3 in australia so i can get the N70 by paying 10$ per month. I only got one reason why i choose this phone: it is for me to get to know about both companies. As far as i concerned, when i only have K750, i used to think, maybe i need a smartphone because i can put applications and it can be really really useful. Guess what? The performance of N70, is not that satisfying, because i have to spent more money just on application itself. What's more, the display is a lot worse than K750 (although it is more vivid), the music player is bullshit. I try to compare them (through speaker) and i found out that K750 perform 200% better than N70. Whats more, when i play it through the earphone, the quality of the K750 is 500% better ^_^. I dun say this out of my brand-mind, but i got the proof: the earphone of the N70 is unusable, the cable is very hard to control and they got annoying thing in the middle, that makes it really troublesome to use the earphone. To those who know SE's HPM 70 (dunno which one, but i am refering to W800's earphone), it just outstanding. When u put it in your ear, you don't even feel anything nor the cable annoys you (if you know how to manage it, but it is of course easier than nokia's).
When i want to transfer data from PC to K750, i just install the CD then the computer will recognize the phone and i can drag the file easily (without any sort of program), whereas nokia: you MUST install the program. The computer WILL NOT recognize your phone as a hardrive so if you want to transfer anything it has to go through the program. So i conclude here clearly: Sony Ericsson is alot more user friendly than Nokia, believe it or not, that's a FACT and I CAN PROVE IT.
This is my view: Nokia N-series does not provide a quality as good as it is on the paper: smartphone-->you can put applications.. YOU ARE RIGHT!!! all the free applications you can find in the internet are bullshit. If you want more from nokia, you have to PAY!!. Mp3-sux. Camera: so-so. calling? ok. Design? damn ugly. battery? not bad.. it lasts for 2-3 days for standby and a bit of calling and sms and applications (i manage to get the free trials instead :p).
Whereas Sony Ericsson perform at their best everything that they put on the paper. Camera? well.. it's not as good as digicam, but for sure it is a lot better than N70. It serves as a flashlight (believe me it is very useful!! Nokia N70 cannot do this). Mp3 player? i use it on a daily basis for almost 7 months now and it works perfectly, no bugs of any sort nor that is slows down although i put 1 GB memory stick it still perform as if it is put with 64 MB memory stick. Phone call? isn't it great to be able to make a phone call through the best earphone in the world, that can be used as a proper mp3? Application? well u guys know how sux java applications are, but some of the free applications are really useful!!!
My purpose to share this is just for u nokia ppl who feel proud about their company.. look.. UR favourite Nokia is seriously ripping you off!!! You cannot use the phone at its peak without paying even more to the company!! So when i heard about N80, N93, N92 will coming out with WLAN and any sort of things they come up with.. look guys.. the more advance the tech, the more you have to pay. I dun even use the Web browser in my N70, Do you know why? It's because i have to pay 50 cent!!! on every KB!!! that's bullshit!!
So, just be normal, mobile phone is after all perform at its best with calling, messaging, MP3 player (K750 is really really acceptable, you can compare it with Ipod), Camera (although i dun use this as much), flashlight. Trust me, if it is SE's high end phone, they are not gonna trick u, they are giving you their best performance. (SE is damn smart to pick up the music ppl as market, because it really works). Keep up the good job SE! W850 rocks!!
and here are some hot news about this phone:
-available in IIIQ in 2006
-usb 2.0 will be available
-up to 4GB memory card
who ever need more :D
where is USB? he,it looks so cool,desing is so fresh with other phones,seems to be a real star.but where is USB port :(
And why doesnt have dual spekers like Alcatel S853 ??? wshen SE will make dual speaker phone??? and good video quality (320x320 or something) ???
too bad it has slide feature...i hate that! how many people out there use their slide or clamshell phone over 1 year w/out any problem?
Is this Black Interface is something old that SE is using for sometime? or is it new?
If(since im not sure) its new, then SE are using Samsung's 'Black UI' from e900.
Check the last pic from the link here:
you you're self said NOKIA puts all Features in one phone,lol i dont see why its bad?i think its so great.
N80's Battery is such a powerful thing!what you said about it is not ture at all,as i am an N80 user i charg every 3 to 4 days(max4days)the phone gives you a 27hs of music play back if the phone is working with the plane mode.
N83,nobody knows for sure if its true or not,though i myself heared the news of it but what you should know that there is no way for the N83 to hit the market soon! as i know the N73,N93 will hit the markit in july while N72 in June.after those the company will give another new line of NOKIA N phones.i expect the N83 will be one of the new ones and it will hit the markit on the X-MAS at the end of the year or at the start of the new year.
which gives the N80 user almost a year to feel happy with his phone,and i think N80 is the best of the best EVEN N73,N93 dont really offer as much as N80 offer,though! they are really powerful with camera and Video shooting.
Nokia fans saying this phone sucks in features well fine go to their phones, ther are many reasons why SE didnt make very full featured phones.
1. the phone will get all the profit of other lines coz they have everything. look at what will happen to n92 when n93 will be released. SE make phones in different features so people will have a choice to suit their lifestyle and also it will take less money to them rather than buying a phone that has feautres that they didnt even need. is that money wise?.
2. NOKIA put all features in n93 and a news have spread that n83 will also come? what the hell are they trying to make people regret?
3. You want WIFI,autofocus mp camera. so get the p990, or if not go to the n80 which nokia fans are reiterating that that phone is the best''' well just wait for some months and the complaints starts to bloom. worse battery, lags, etc. i dont even like a smartphone. its like a PC very complicated to use.
for me i dont even like the n-series nowdays. the features gets better but design gets more ugly, they better return to 66xx,76xx or anything like that. it has better design
will this phone work with Cingular or any other phone companies in the US? i think this phone is gonna rock! Too bad its not a 3.2 megapixel camera like the k790a eh?
Im dissapointed....Sony ericsson are putting no effort into there latest fones...all they are doing ts taking similar models are pumping out later models with a different design... its crap....bring out something new
¿¿¿Who says that this phone is the best??? its only a great music phone, isnt a smartphone, if you want the best smartphone at this time go with P990, but W850 is only a MUSIC PHONE. In addition has great slider design, but arent stylish like samsung or siemens sliders, w850 is more sporty and looks nice.
For the stup*d people who compare W850 with smartphones:
Read your comments before post it please!!
People rate without mind!, the Features rate is so much over rated,i wonder how do people think.
Polyphonic (40 channels)
fine display but not best!
how in h e l l does this phone gets 8.3 with Features.
Design gets 8.6, NOW thats also crazy since nobody had touched the phone to see or use the slid thing to see if it works perfectly or not.
I dont go by UNreal rating or by stupid comments.true rateing should be giving after trying this phone.
so far, it looks nice.BUT NOT BEST!
*cough**cough* I think u're a Nokia fan and u r coming here to say everything blindly.
first of all this sort of things for example how the phone opens,u cannot say they copied it. So if its like this i can say Nokia 7370 copied W900. So u better shut up
man thats my opinion. i compare this one to 6280 coz it's functionally similar. and i dont care if other SE phones have bugs. coz i am comparing only those two. i dont know why you are so defensive to that phone. i love that phone also. but it's my opinion to say i will prefer to this one because 6280 has many complaints... another is that this phone have better looks...
and also look beter and deeper. which phones have bugs you are telling? w550?z520? in nokia, n70?n90?n91?6280?6270?6111? (those phones can be corected with firmware upgrades) and many more... open your eyes and think deeply before reacting my opinion...ok i dont mean to argue with you im just stating a fact...
