I have a W850 and it's really beautiful. My only grudge is that it takes a little time to get use to the awkward d-pad. I also hope that SE soon sorts out the problem with the Walkman Player when you are setting up the playlist: you get to choose from the file list view, instead of the walkman view, which should be the case (this is a tad annoying). It also lacks autofocus and macrofocus in its camera, but otherwise i love it.
its excellent but one thing not get that we not get that software about this mobiles please plz and plz where we get this software about this phone .
Prototype Phone - the Show models not for sale
Normal Phone - everything works how it should and can be for sale
Just adding onto my last comment, i also had the same issue with the D-pad cracking. i first noticed it in the first....2weeks of getting it. i wasnt too happy, but i was too lazy 2 have it fixed =)
also, the LH photo button has also stopped working, which sucks, but if i wanted it for thecamera, i would have brought a Cyber-shot phone. lol
the slide has worked a little too loose for me =/ and i find th walkman button to be a total pain in the ass to use >=(
i had the same problem, with the phone turinig itself off, really annoying. and the battery life is great, except when using WAP. fantastic speaker quality. i am upgrading to the K850i so i hope that going from walkman to cyber-shot dosent mean i will lose sound quality
should i get this phone or a w830(which has edge) do u think w830 is okay..???
can someone please tell me if the Sony Ericsson K800 is better or the Sony Ericsson w850i?
At first, this phone is everything that I need. Good music, decent camera, and long batery life. Only problems was minor, only cracking d-pad and sleep mode after playing a video, quite annoying but back then I still could live w/ that.
But after 14 months, this phone started to show it cheapness. Now everytime I play the music, the handset always become hot and the battery is drained so fast. And everytime I turn on and off the music, I always get big, annoying, clicking noise on my earphone, really hurts my ears.
SE was a big disappointment for me. I was considering to go back to Nokia or try Samsung.
I contacted Sony Ericsson about a wrong charger issue, and asked about the Battery Life thing, they told me that they want you to drain the battery completely and charge it for 12 hrs straight the first 2 times to build up the battery life
can anyone help meee....
i just got dis phone last month
the features r great but d only prob is can i fast forward d video in dis phone?
plz help me
Bought this phone after giving away my W810. So I'll basically compare the two. I find the W850 quite impressive. W850 is better looking, Music is better, speaker louder, pictures smoother & screen larger though not brighter. I really miss the auto focus and more powerful flash and solid build of W810.
An overall very good phone but will likely upgrade to W960 as soon as it is available.
Hi 2 all
A month or so ago i posted an opinion on this phone, at the time i only had it for 3 days, it's been a month now, back then i said that the slide was tough, but it relly loosend up alot, to be honest it's a bit to loos for my tast now, but i'm very picky.
the review on this site says that you have to buy a memory card out of your own pocket, but i got my'n with a 1gig included, witch was a relief for me coz this phone uses a "memory stick pro duo", witch is very expensive becoze it's a high speed qality product, and is just a tad smaller than a normal SD card.
I got a virus on my phone, you should be carefull coz that costs about R100 to fix,
you will have to take your phone in to upgrade your software to firmware to download some software.
Anyone know were i can download a antivirus for this phone?
for video purpose what format this phone support?
please give advice..
To ib4z. The front camera cannot be used to capture pictures. It only get active during a video call. I downloaded camera tools and set the main camera on cam 1. So now i can capture images with the front cam.
Please answer... does the front camera work for normal pictures? as in not just for video calls... i really need to know for i am thinking of getting this phone.
W850i its a sexy slide phone... Stylish n has a nice walkman in it.... I Like to have one........
