Got this phone on 9th September 2007, my birthday. So heres a mini review after a few weeks.
1)Sexy and extremely fashionable design! the overall aspect of this phone is very good, given you take care of it well.
2)Material used is appropriate and very durable,(by the way I got the silver one) the stainless steel on the front plate leaves only awe in me when i touch it, the back, assures a firm grip when using!
3)Beautiful screen. I don't really know why people complain about the size, its QVGA, so the small size brings out the high detail of the pixels. And the brightness is average, legibility under sunlight is also average, depending on fingerprints.
4)Walkman quality very good indeed. The music quality of this handset blew me away, the headset given is also adequate enough for frequent listeners.
5)Fast camera speed, I seriously love the camera interface of the w880i, its fast, after the shutter, it only takes half a second before it prompts u whether to save or not. Very very high speed camera.
6)High speed menu interface. The whole handset is very fast!
7)Buttons are spaced well apart, though the tactile feel needs getting use to, the numeric keypad scores above average here.
8)Very good reception!
1)Camera lacks auto focus, might be important to some, but it compensate with its high speed camera.
2)Fast port left uncovered, the fast port to be honest, is a blot on a landscape! the opeing ruined the whole elegent feel of the handset!
3)Speaker volume insufficient and distorts.
4)Too thin a phone for big hands??
Thats basically all I can think of, overall, this phone is a must for music freaks, or fashion maniacs!
i think the phone should have radio. but i really luv the phone coz im using it presently and enjoying it .
how many days the battery stand? the stuff like music, camera and other are not important...i'll more like the phone that is more slimmer then 8-9mm and have no stupid camera...camera less than k800,k850 flash,af... i have k750,6233,k800, v3 and 8910 and every phone is for difrent use,some for good loking, some for battery life, but I wanna one with both..
with phone like this is just important the size,look, and battery!!! 6300 has realy low battery life and cuz of that phone sucks... how is battery life on w880??(days without turning it off at night)...
first opinion of this slim phone - for a girl. why would a guy want a phone like this ?
here in singapore, singtel have w880i full black, changing the orange element to black n silver, so its a w880i silver and black edition! wayyy cooler than the original 2 colours..
well must say the mobile is great !!!!
in shops looks big, on sites look ugly and in front of me looks like million dolars worth phone :)
owners will know what i am talking about.
its not the best camera - but i have real camera for that
not great loudspeaker - but i listen music on my home stereo.
great screen and great orbit theme with vibrating menu :)
great software support.
keypad is great when you get used to it.
It is a phone and very slim and fancy phone, i almost taked samsung D900i or U600, but now im glad i didnt cause its nothing special like this one. It is still unusual phone and very slim and nice.....only thing i miss is flash , but i ll survive and buy a flashlight, cause this phone is so COOL.
Hellow thanks 4 the help on the W880 i decided i m not gonna buy it. well could any of you guys help me out on buyin the best possible music phone that has like no problems with it, and has a not bad camera, then has awesom batt life and i dont want a joystick in the navigation my hands just werent built for them.......oh and has support for a standard USB removable drive. thnx guys
A technological wonder. I think this is still the best phone on the market after all this time. Amazingly small and thin, solid build quality, long battery life, great to listen to and a joy to use. Just want to know how SE will replace this phone since it is still their smallest phone after all these months
i didn't like the volume button. it was too recessed and tricky to use.
the loudspeaker was horrible. not loud and very tinny sounding.
I bought the 880 to replace my w810i and ended up selling the 880 and keeping my 2yo 810i as it was a better phone. (easy to use, better sounding, fm radio, Infra red..etc)
Hey guys i just have a question about the fone i dont care about the camera though. first of all how is the volume buton like is it easy to use or does it get stuck eventually or is it just good enough that i wont have any problem with it.
and the speaker, is it really that horibble like in what aspects is it not good....like is it not loud or is it just not good at all could you compare it to the w810 ot the w700?? thnx
Is there any way that I can active the first camera to take photos? Help is really appreciated thanks. :)
i agree with sidhaarth the price must come down for good sales,other wise there are more alternatives...........
buttons too small.only babies at kindy could use those buttons and if they weren't sticking out would be better
bought this phone but the videocall camera is in the right side not in the left and i wanna know if my phone is falce or what
