Had this mobile for a year, I can say that it has a strong body. since I dropped it about 4 or 5 times and still it works perfectly.
The slider mechanism is nothing but perfect.
If you put the W850 head to head with the N80, sure the W850 would ace the test.
I experienced some problems though.
Sometimes the mobile had to start its self for unknown reasons.
The sound quality is just perfect, although I found the volume is not really high!! (Want to find a solution 4 this problem)
If you are a file transferring freak, you won't be happy with the transfer rate that the included USB offers (it's really slow).
try to consider a memory card reader, it would be way much faster.
no more sony ericsson!
it sure has great features which can compete with other mobile phone companies and i even influenced some friends to buy a phone from sony ericsson coz i was so happy with my phone but my satisfaction lasted for less than 6 months only and the phone is not useful anymore...quality??? maybe i'll try some other brand.
really loved the phone when i got it..best quality when it comes to music..satisfied but only in less than a year..when i slide down d phone the screen turned white..brought it to sony ericsson for repair thinking it was just a minor problem because it never got wet or fell..i was so disappointed knowing it was the board that was broken and the technician told me if i'll buy a new part it is equivalent to a new phone..quality wise not that good..now i'm looking for a new phone but i'm choosing other brand.
Search on Google.youl find loadss of websites to download from
especially Esato.com or MyW850i.com
Cyrus, 02 Jun 2008Ok, I just answered my own question..... YES it does!ive got this phone but im bored with the menu icons
can anyone tell me how to get flash themes please?????????????
but overall this phone is quality
best music phone ever
ei, tnx.. big help.. coz im a worrier..and m really scared that this flickering will eventually result into the WSOD syndrome hehehe..
Its true n73 is louder but its loudness has this noise or distortion.but w850 is very loud and sound quality of its speakers is perfect.best phone speakers ever made.
And theres no WOSD syndrome in SE.my bro & my friend had a k700 and they got it together and stayed with it for two years without a single glitch.i have the w850 and its been with me for over a year & its glitchless too.actually its perfect.& my use is pretty rough.plus w850 are well known for their toughness & durability.so if u managed to screw up urs then my friend u must be a horrible user.probably chuking it at people.SEs do have a problem with the headphone\charger jack tho.
These are all known facts
@ _sweetest mistake_
NOOOOOOO dont get it replaced,
the Display Flickers becuase W850i has a Ambience Light Sensor
Meaning it adjusts the Display Light according to the Lighting you are in......
hope iv helped;)
..hav it for two wks already..and m really happy wid it..i wanted a w910i but i feel that ive made the right choice.. =)
..no major prob so far, but i wonder y it flickers..so wat i did, i lowered the brightness settings to 80%, it still flickers, not that obvious though..
..should i have it replaced just bcoz of dat?..
My W850i just died (WSOD) after a little more than a year, the known White Screen Of Death of SE phones... I WAS happy with that phone but now i'm deeply disappointed with SE... I used to have W810i before my 850 but it also died after 1 month that I got it (same WSOD syndrome). Also, the headset/charger "jack" or "port" gets loose very easily... I would look this time for the standard headphone jack (like those in Nokia Express Music phones), I think that would be much better and less troublesome...
pretty much, ive noticed, that all SE phones get dust under their screens. but i still love em. this phone looks so tight, my pops is getting it for me! yeah!
this phone is really durable...
and does not hang...
