I hade the K700 before, in fact still have it. I twas my first experience of sony ericsson, and i must say it was love at first byte haha. I have had motorolla, samsung, nokia and lg phones before and i have to say i was fairly impressed with the phone in terms of gaming, internet, email, blue tooth, modem, infrared and all other tools and applications and over usage of the phone. Last week i upgraded to the W880I, and must say first off, learning curve from previous phone wasnt to hard, slim look excellent, keys small but stand out easy to use, 3G now available-network dependent, blue tooth works fairly well, usb cable now def. a plus and easier and faster to use, also memory card better, explorer interface to folders much better and more detail, had to download previously developer tools for more access to phones files over all i think a good phone.
I have only three dissapointments:
No radio, although was told it had one, and honestly for a multimedia phone one almost expects it standard, but there you go, now radio.
No infrared, used it alot on prev phone, dont have to carry a bluetooth dongle arround... especially for laptop.
and music sounds bad and tinny on loudspeaker, BUT to be fair, the headphones supplied is excellent, and sound quality is fab!! which basically it is a walkman, so headphones would be worn anyways...
so there my ten cents worth, haha i like it!
Im getting this phone tomorrow.!!! :D
how does the trackID work> does it connect to teh net or somthing
i love this phone. its design is tight! so thin and classy with stainless steel cover. theres just 2 things that bother me. the loudspeaker which is not loud enough and the sound volume which is also not loud ebough. i had a Nokia N91 before i purchesed a W880, W880's sound is nothing compared to N91. Sad but true..
Has anyone had any problems with the camera on the w880. today i pressed the silver camera button and all of a sudden my fone went completely blank and then rebooted itself and eva since this keeps happening so i can no longer access my camera everytime i try the phone switches off and thjen back on. just wanted to know if anyone else had the same problem?? the phone was boxed brand new bought from ebay an unwanted upgrade but the box did not contain a warranty certificate.
Thank you sylvia, yes i've discovered the Auto Key Lock. It's in setting-->phone-->security!
Well guys, this is the best and most beautiful mp3 phone you will ever get at the moment! The phone design is so sleek and eye catching! I got the silver colour one! It's very elegant. Metallic stainless steel silver cover with stainless steel keypad. With the white keypad backlight, the phone is damn contrast and sharp especially during night time or at dark area. It's like a diamond radiant. It's so beautiful! With stylish walkman 2.0 software, superb phone design...what else can you ask! It's more than an ipod Nano!
Btw, i also got the SE tiny speakers as free gift. It comes with the phone in the package! haha.
nice to hear from you again ALIII
people keep asking the same questions to i keep giving the same answers. for some reason, people rather post a question here rather than check the SE website or read a couple of pages of history to find their answer.
you watch, within a few posts, we'll get someone else asking "is dis a gud fone or wat ?"
"duz it hav a r8dio ?"
At least i can make my mind up about the phone, you keep changing your mind.
No, W880 does not have a flash in order to keep it very thin.
If you need flash you should consider W610, W810 or W850
No Flash or light at all.
As for loudspeakers, they are loud enough, but the sound is very tinny. Kind of like when you hear someone with their walkman earphones turned up real loud.
Does the camara have flash at all?
I read the review and it has no auto focus, but didn't see anything about a flash, does it have any?
whats the matter with the loudspeaker can u not hear ur tunes very well when u ply ur music player?
You mean this phone can make calls and send text ? That's amazing !
i have this phone now it so amazing i can ring people on it and text and so much much more well done sony
Hi all. I just got my new W880 yesterday. Previously I had a W810. The first thing I love about this phone is that is SOOOO thin (almost half my old W880). It's very light too, I love that, as it does not buldge in my pocket. The screen is great too, very bright and clean, but a little small compared to other SE phones. The keys are not that hard to press, I've already get used to them and I've only used it for one day. The battery life is great. The new Walkman Player 2.0 is much better than 1.0, with more options and skins available. The camera is not it strongest point, but I don't care about it since I carry my 7.2 MP Sony Cybershot always. The voice quality during calls in very good. I've tested the Track ID and it works perfectly. And last but not least is an eye-catcher: all my friends are jealous of my phone lol.
Overall a good upgrade. I'll rate it 9.5/10 =)
no infra red
no decent sounding speakers
no good for me
(looks nice though)
but does it have radio can anyone tell me please ????????????????????????????????????
I am thinking of purchasing this phone.It looks really cool!! But I'm confused whether i should get W850 or W880.Which has better specs. Any suggestions?!?
I have just received one as an upgrade from the K800i and I must say that I like the phone imensely. The K800 was very bulky compared to the previous phone I had, so it's nice to slip this in your pocket. The only downside I can see is the loudspeaker which makes all my ringtones sound tinny. However, this is a minor inconvenience compared to how rich all the other features are. It's a great walkman, a great phone and the chicks love it... what more can you ask for.
P.S. I would definitely recommend that you go for the silver one, as it doesn't show finger marks!
