The battery doesn't last very long the older it gets.
It looks good though.
But if you close it too quickly the phone switches off.
And I have had a few times where I go to call someone, and the phone turns itself off when the other person answers.
I have also had on instance where Multiple people called and text me and I didn't get them til the end of the next day once I made a call to voicemail.
Bit retarded eh'?
Anyways its a hot phone. I love it. Even if it screws up alot as of late.
It sounds like alot of problems.
But it could be worse.. it could be an LG chocolate phone lawl.

its a Tough Phone this W850i
mine has coped with alot of Bashing and throwing and bashing around.........but IT STILL WORKS!
Does this come with a camera cover? I'm planning to buy this phone, but i want to know if the camera will be protected. I'm considering K810i and K800i as well. i don't know thich will be the best. I want one with great sounds and good picture quality. Pls help!
I'm gonna miss that camera, I had for 5 months, and now I have a w580, much slimmer, but the camera is almost the same like 850. Anyway, I love it the way it is..if u want to buy a phone with excellent camera, buy a SE, I guarentee that are the best camera phones on the market...I just love my w580, with all it's features and design. with the w850 i hadn't any problem at all, i sell it to a friend of mine, he dropped into mud, and the phone still works, hears and pics perfectly..it's just brilliant, nothing cracked, or coped...so i reccomend it with all my pleasure..:) also the w580..:):)
if you want to keep your W850i buy a cheap board or whatever is water damaged
but the best thing to do is
SELL it as Spares! and sell the acceessories such as Memory card,earphones,charger separatly and sell the phone as spares!
youl get alot money this way
My W850i has coped with rain falling on it ........but not 100% stable after its hanged alot of times water has been on it ..and my Navigation has CRACKED! yes it works but not all the time and it looks BAD!
and the keypad and back cover and Slider are making Creaking sounds..........
looks lik my W850i days are OVERRRRRRRR!
and i thought it would last forever..doesnt seem like it tho
this fone is built with in the same flatform with the k800 but the k800 have better screen
what a dumb from sony..ericsson!
As I said, my phone has been damaged. The service center guy is telling its board is damaged and it needs to be replaced. According to him, board costs near 70% of the phone cost. And after replacement, the stuff will not be covered for warrenty. What should I do with the phone? can anybody comment? How much it will be if I just want to buy a new phone without battery, memory card, charger and ear phones?
I bought one in August this year. during rain, few water drops had fallen on the phone and it got hanged. I removed the cell and handed over to Sony Ericson Authorised sevice center. After inspection they returned the phone saying it is water damage and is irrepairable and will not cover under warranty. Thus I lost INR 16000 just because I bought such a flimsy product from sony. Never again I repeat this mistake.
