The phones is cool, except after about 3 months of use, you only have to knock it and it switches off. It was sent back to sony and repaired, same happened again 3-4 months down the line. Some of my mates have the same phone - same problem.
i went to the sony ericsson website to try the simulation of this phone. But i couldn't open the front camera. there wasn't any button that said use frontal camera. But can we can take pictures of ourselves using the w880 frontal camera? or is it only used for video calls? thnks...
I have been phone for a long while now and its a great phone to have. Very slim and small form factor and is great when you slip the phone into your pocket you can hardly feel its there.
Good: Form factor, brush metallic feel on front, back cover is more rubberized and feels good. Great features on it and has a good 3G and reception. Good UI and good sound for phone calls. Lot of friends have commented on the phone. Ladies love it and can insert into their purse. Excellent bluetooth
Buttons takes some getting used to. If you have large fingers this is not the phone for you. Ring volume is not that loud and you may miss a call. Vibration is also not that good. Camera is not that great but its not made to be a camera phone.
Its a very well built phone and has a solid feel. I would highly recommend.
i had this phone for around 3 months now and i really like it. this phone is intended as a walkman so please dont complain that the pictures are not that good... this is very nice for cute chix... it is very slim... slimmer than the nokia 6300 and as the same thickness as the samsung x820... this is really a cool phone... it has already a 1gb m2 upon purchase... the external sound is not that good since this is very slim... it only has 1 external speakers but when you listen through the headset, the sound is very nice... cool keypad... not intended for people with fat fingers...
i had this phone for three days. i didn't like it. the sounds doesn't sound good and when people raise their voice, the phone will squeak. The function isn't that good as well, and specially the headset. Using the headset gives me a headach. It just wasn't the right phone for me.
can anyone tell me how to block a contact using this handset?please... it's urgent.
Thanks for the summary Graeme... like I said, its a hot looking phone and if you have the fingers for it... go for it! Great look, great audio features, great skins... throw away your ipod and get a W880i (if you're that keen!)
i read the comments it seems that there are more bad things in this than good things .. what is your oppinion , to buy this mobile or not ?
i think the sound is on the loud speaker is fine i got the fone and think its fine also
don complain bout the small buttons...
live with it...
i bought this phone for over 4 months...
and i hav no problem with the buttoms even thought i hav fat fingers...
all u need is some time and u'll get use to the buttons...
then u'll find that this is such a wonderful phone...
no flash, no auto focus... very good phone, but, for me, worst then older models like w810, w700, k790...
Im planning to buy this model next week, is its ear volume is loud enough? or the same with the K750i?
Please if anyone had it share your experienced
The people who are complaining about certain aspects of this phone need to remember what this phone was intended for and how it has been geared towards that part of the market. It's a Sony Walkman phone, so the music player and memory are good. It's also intended as a fashion phone, so the looks of the handset as such a slim 3G handset are impressive. This isn't the phone you consider if you want a great camera or if you have big fingers. The raised buttons do make navigation easy once you get used to the size compared to most handsets.
I've had it a couple of months now and I'm very happy with it. Yes, certain elements could be improved, but I knew that at point of purchase so I can't really complain.
Wat phone has a torch. like flash?? I only know k750i...Can anyone tell me all the other ones...of course this doesnt
I think its a hot lookin phone, but the keypad is the worst I've ever felt (personal opinion)... but if you have tiny, skinny fingers, go get 'em! I really wanted this phone until I touched it... gives me the same feeling as scratching fingernails on a blackboard!
Have a demo of the w880 at work. Comes free on a $49 cap with bonus 1 GB memory card. The keypad takes some getting used to but it grew on me after spending some time browsing through its functions and settings. If you want a music player, quality camera and phone in one package that is slim, this is the phone for you.
i am using w880i now.. it's a nice phone, easy to bring it to everywhere, it's light and thin, juz like a MP4, but the size of screen quite small.
