Bought this a month ago. Previous phone Motorola E1 ROKR. Very pleased with W850i. Great navigation/layout. Bright screen, high resolution (240x320) graphics, pick your own animations for wallpaper/startup/screen saver. Very light, Cool look (the grey model). Sweet Walkman although i've an iPod. 230euros comes with USB, in-ear headphones, charger. I'm very happy. It looks, feels and works like an expensive phone. Some nifty gadget functions too, like random music, TrackID & record phone call (if ur into that!). Will have to wait and see about physical wear & tear. I don't have probs texting. Altho the 2MP camera doesn't have flash :( Meh. Overall, recommend. J
the parts an accessories izz kinda hard to find an source,,, cuz i hav 1 an to get a shell for it izz very hard
I have the white SE w850 and I really like it but does anyone notice the white turns a bit yellow?? I dono if I'm just being paranoid or not...
got this on contract a year ago, new phone arrives 2moro..thankfully. its been a nightmare 4 txting with, connects itself to the net when locked and in my pocket and despite not being abused has steadily dissintigrated and is held together with superglue, still works tho! not built to last.
dis fon is around RM1025-1050...but some places sell more xpensive.
n hv to ask,did anyone here brought white w850??i love white.but d seller said that it will get dirty easily.i think bout having d outside cover,but it seems like looking bigger den i tot.izit looks ok for u all?izit ugly bcoz of d size after adding d cover??
Wah...I am very love this phone,know?
Now i am using k750i..
My phone fell down b4 tis...
My phone broke lo...
Sometimes,its oso will standby itself...
Now,i am thinking about want buy tis W850i o not....
this phone's gud, it lacks on da slickness but im glad wid everythin else, very loud ringtone, (like other SE phones) truly a great phone 2 carry around n my friends like it 2. Nice job Walkman!!!
is it just me? but everytime i use the headsets to call people when i talk.. i hear myself? anyone experience this prolbem?
wooh abt w850i ts so nic than w810i which i had t last month kip t tight
I love this phone.. brilliant memory.. ive got about 200 photo's on it and ALOT of music.. love the ear phones and everything else.. one tiny annoying thing which im willing to live with is when i slide it open it goes fuzzy for a sec then its ok but hey.. the pros are more than the cons!
im planning to buy this phone, but it is true that the camera has no zooming?
I m looking forward for w910 like u.But i really do not know much about it except the fact that we can change and shuffle songs by just shaking it so if u can please tell me more about w910i.I think it can play music according to our mood,but how?i don`t know.It looks great also.As u know i m a music lover nd great fan of walkman.This phone has attracted me because of its special walkman 3.0 player.I m not only attracted towards good sound but also towards goog looking media player.I really do`t like skins of walkman 2.0 nd i m really hoping that it may have good looking media player.I will own it after dec. because only one month is left for my exams.
bye & take care
juz had this fone for two weeks.best music fone ever.the megabass is wow!had w810 for six months n thot SE had run out of ideas having owned k750,w800.the v2 walkman is fantastic.2 bad camera doesnt hav AF but takes great shots in gud lighting.call reception typical of SE-outstanding!!!y not launch a 3.2mp walkman, SE?it wuld b da bomb!i recomend w850i for slide lovers.only dissapointment is that you cant end a call when you slide down.
about blutooth headsets.check this model: sony ericsson HBH-DS970.i have it and it is rivelless,realy good.the quality of music and talking on it is really wonderful and it is very expensive , in my country something like 90 $ .they play music continuesly for 4.5 hours,eventhogh sony ericsson claims that to be 6 hours.but again that is pretty good,buy them and get rid of all the wires serrounding you !
about another phone. if i were you i would wait for w910 to be in the market,would test and buy it.it is very classy and full of life,i love its style.but again i think no revelution will occur in its music play back quality,even though that thing is gonna have the music player version 3 which is more beautiful but not really more practical.
i used to have a w950 .
good point about that :
1: where ever you go peaple will look at you and admire your very lovly , pretty slim smart phone.put a black theme on its black body and turn it to an eye-catcher !
2: very nice visualisations for the music player,mybe not very important.but it certainly is a welcome thing in w950
3: very very short time of charging.just 40 minuts of charging is enough to make full.very amazing
4:sleek design.very nice to hold and to look at.unlike w850 this thing looks really better than its pictures and feels great in hands.
4: four giga byts of memory ! that is really good,isn't it?
5 : no camera !!!!! good,hah? i love that fact , because you don't have to worry about its bad quality!
weak areas :
1: very very very weak speakers ! very quiet,shameful.it's like a 2 months old baby crying.very disappointing
2:not user-friendly interface.you get lost in its menu most of the time .
3:touch screen not good,too small icons.you have to use the stylus all the time,not your fingers .
4: not so great battery life.
5: no manual setting for the equalisers,just the preset ones,not so respectable
all in all that's a good phone for you ricky.cause the quality of the sound through headphones is very nice and it is really a gorgeous phone.buy it sooner,cuse i've heard sony is going to make it history.
to nokianomore !
SACRIFICE??!! why? why sacrifice?this is exactly my problem,why do you have to neglect some very important thing ( like the loud speakers ) on such a device? think about it,you pay a lot of money for that,it's not a cheap phone at all.is the camera good? NO WAY ! is the film recording wonderful? GIVE ME A BREAK !!! so why is it pricy? just music,huh?so i'm asking you,when you want to be satisfied with your device that its only ability is playing music ( well yeah, it makes phone calls too ! ) don't you think it has to be perfect?i mean what is that jazzy walkman logo doing there? why most of the people prefer cellphones over mp3 players ? is it because cellphones have a better quality ? of course not,any dummy knows that sony ericsson w850 or any other music cellphones even don't touch the surface of great quality of I-pods and other proffessional mp3players ! so the only better thing is that : first,with the cellphone replacing the mp3player you will be lighter,you don't have to carry two things with you , just one.
second is that the phone has speakers so you don't have to damage your ears by listening through the headphones all the times,you can use spaeakers when you are with your friends,at the beach,in a place that there is no cd-player,in your office,even you can take that to your bed and enjoy listening to music with your spause ! lol.so my verdict is this:
1:if you are a music lover,don't buy it.instead get some very cool i-pod or sony walkman players for you and a decent phone,they are really better.heavier ofcourse but you love the music,so have to pay the consequences!
2 : if you are a normal person trying to buy a phone which is a multimedia device,never get close to it.sure it takes pictures,recrd movies,plays them back and plays the music but there are a lot of other choices available that happen to be cheaper! like what ? sony ericsson w800 ! ( the 2 mega pixel camera on this beauty has auto-focus and can really be used )
3 : if you want a heavy phone that makes squcking sound when you get its slide opened and a phone that has poor speakers,mediocare screen( not bright ! ) , terrible navigation key and kind of dull,then this is the right choice.don't hesitate into buying it.
the good things :1 : unbelivable battery life,very good
2 : cool music quality through the head phones !
