Hey guys the phone is very nice. Better than I had expected.
I hav been using this for abt 2 weeks now.
The walkman quality is superb. Superb means superb.
If you want the ultimate walkman experience then buy HPM-85. I hav bought it myself on the day of purchase of mobile. The handfree HPM-70 which comes along with the pack is nothing in comparison with HPM-85.
Even though HPM-85 looks big, but it does not consume more battery at all. Its just a fraction more. Nothing else.
Even though this cell does not have an auto focus camera, I have got very satisfactory images at just 2MP. Remember 2 keep your hand as still as possible while clicking. Then it gives full 2MP clarity equivalent to that of 2MP cybershot phone. I didn't find any thing wrong with the camera at all.
Its slim factor is its unique feature.
Its loud speaker is a bit low in sound.
But its very loud when connected with earphones at 80% volume with no loss or rupturing of sound at 100 % volume.
That's what walkman is made for right.
The battery life is also great. Lasted for 1-1/2 to 2 days.
It consumes a lot of battery power during calls & plus the scree remains on throught the call.
It does not have photolight.
In all a great phone for music lovers with good camera & battery life & don't forget HPM-85.
im planning to buy either this w880 or w580 any suggestions??please reply im going to buy 1 of this phone in days!

thecutest, 15 Sep 2008please help me...my phone hung then i removed the batery after then i returned the battery and... moreyes, mine did the same thing, it's a software fault, all it needs is reflashing.
How do you change the cover on your phone? W880i i have bought a new one and just cant get old one off??
Bisi, 12 Sep 2008The Speaker of my phone is not workin nd my phone find it difficult to switch onYou should find that option in the options when you make a call.
james, 15 Sep 2008that red light u see is normal.it appears brighter when the battery is completely dead.Yes that is normal when the phone is off & charging the light comes on.
it seems good and so thin and also its prices is very reasonable to buy, i mean for turkey market its now selling from USD160,00.-
its a very kool phone and i love it very much, just because the walkman and the cam are very good.The only dissapointing thing is that the screen is short but that doesn't matter
i think this is really beautiful. with the specifications, oh i really liked this phone.

Useless. This was over a period of around 9 months!!Have a 910i now which is ok - so far.......
My W880i was fine for about a year, and then started turning itself off and the only way to turn it on again was to remove and replace the battery. This has got gradually worse and now it doesn't charge. 4 other people I know have experienced the same problem. Sent it back to Sony and they rebooted the software and a week later the same problems started again. Now changing to a W580i
On the plus side, it is a great phone that looks good and is very user friendly.
