To me, its like an Ipod nano, with a camera, internet and looks great. For someone who's had a brick all their life it makes a great upgrade, the fact this phone fits in my wallet also means its not getting damaged, and it will look cool for ages to come, there won't be many decent competitors with it size wise for a while. It is a fashion statement too, and does have a wow factor for its beauy. Just like the fact the nokia n80 has the wow factor because its like a mini laptop and camera.
All depends on what you like!
ok.. so we're agreeing with each other then.
The phone is nice looking and slim. The slimness is at the expense of certain functions which may or may not be important to users
To me, the size does not make up for what you lose and I don't like the way the the existing features work as well (ie speakers, media player, bluetooth)
so for ME, MY OPINION is that the w810i is a better phone than the w880.
Now i hope that makes it clear to everyone that they it's ok for people to have different opinions. that there doesn't have to be a right or wrong opinion. that to not like a particular phone doesn't make you stupid.

deer mick , u said right that site is for us to express our opinions ... not every one has the same choice...so if u dont like it than its ur own choice but i was just trying to say that the fone has no flash , no zoom and no radio bcoz of its slim shape...just for a sec compare this set [shape wise] vid fat ugly nokia sets . how difference in the size it would b.....and listen care fully shape matters . ok
nokia sucks se rockss
I have had 1 ov these 4 just over a month, they great, small, light weight and smart, camera is good quality, walkman has gud volume, i would recomend it!
Im not misguiding anyone. All i am saying is that for me, it's not a great phone. I agree it looks great, and it's small, but the smallness is at the expense of features. For me, the sacrifice is too great, for others it may be fine.
Why is it that you can't express an opinion these days ?
Grow up people. This site is not a SonyEricsson fan club. It's so people can express an opininon about a phone so others can make an informed decision.
Have i lied or said anything incorrect about the phone ? The answer is NO
i just had the w850 and now i have the w880 and for sure that the w850 has more features than 880 but the w880 is very confterble. i prefer the w880 its desing is way cooler and better than the big fat w850
volume is normal like the all walman series phones have and battery life is excellent a way better than the nokia phones...its the best
The speaker volume is ok but the sound is can-like. The volume at the headset is good, you can never be wrong with SE when it comes to music in mobiles especially in their Walkman models.
im ahmed , plllz any body till me wt abt the volume of the speakers and the life battarey plzz any body replay thnn
The only good thing about this Motorola SLVR W880i is the size. Oh........ and the 'display', which is beaten by my k800. This is supposed to be a music phone, and the sound quality is abysmal. The camera focal length is tiny, and it could do with a flash and autofocus. The lack of Infrared is a major disappointment, but I am not too fussed about the lack of a radio because it has 1GB of memory. My little brother's K750i is easily better than this. Who needs UMTS?

stop misguiding oderz about this fone . it is a great phone .....y r u so annoyed at this fone.i think its a very good phone..u say it has no radio no flash then what? cant u notice how slim it is ...is it nothing for u?a great shape and a smart phone i love that.se way better than nokia coz nokia suckss and i dont know what the hell is that n series having bigger phones and very slow too ........i hate nokia n i love se
hi i got this phone not long ago, overall i like it alot, but i have one problem, its been a week, and mine is the one with the orange back, and around the corners on the back its getting dirty, like its darker, now has anyone experianced this with this phone? and if so any way to clean it? thanks
Thanks Mick. I'm not fussed about infra-red or radio, but the light is pretty damned useful. Wonder when SE will upgrade their cybershot phones to 5 megapixels so we can get 3.2 in the walkman phones. That's been a great help, think i'll just wait for the next one then...
well, if you look at my posts below, you can see what I don't like about it
I see the 850 as an upgrade to the 810. And I see the 880 as a step down in features to the 810 !
If i'm correct in my assumption that the 850 is a better phone than the 810 in terms of features, then I think you would miss the following:
- Sound quality from internal speaker
- The volume button on the 880 is much harder to use. (it's tiny,recessed and requires multiple inputs to change volume...ie you can't just hold it down)
- Infra red (i use it to sync with my laptop)
If none of these features are important to you, and you just want a cool looking phone, tthen it's a nice phone.
Any particular reason I'd hate the W880 over the W850? What is it that makes it so much worse...?
oh yeah..forgot to mention
the w810i speakers is ok to listen to..nothing fantastic, but good considering. By comparison, the w880 is awful and very tinny. (even on mega bass mode). Sure it's loud,..it's awfully loud.
megapixels ? i never complained about that..and don't care about cameras on phones. My opininion is they are all very average compared to a real camera, which is what I would use if I needed one. Megapixels are irrelevant if the ccd is miniscule and the lens is crap. but as I said, it's not a digicam it's a camera phone so i'm not complaining about it.
lastly, i know you think i just don't know how to use a phone..but i'm a computer nerd like most people on this forum. I reckon i know how to figure stuff out and even read a manual when i'm desperate. I reckon the bluetooth issue is fixable, but i decided to sell the phone anyway, so wasn't going to invest time troubleshooting. It didn't work first time so i wasn't going to bother with it.
You guys are funnny. Someone expresses that they are not happy with the phone and you get all agressive assuming that the only reason I don't like it is because i'm stupid.
If i have a phone that works well, and I buy a new version of it, which doesn't work as well..then don't i have the right to be unhappy ?
Do either of you have a W810i ? Have you used it and therefore know why I consider the w880 a step down ? If can do things in 2 key presses on a w810, which now take 4-5 keypresses, is that an upgrade or a step backwards ?
I knew the radio wasn't included so that's fine, but I sure as hell don't want to carry a phone and a radio in my pocket when I could just carry a phone.
I assume the bluetooth issue a problem of compatibility b/w the phone and handset. but if it works perfectly with my old phone of the same brand, then it's reasonable to assume that it should work with the 880
If you have not used the w810 walkman interface, then how can you say that the w880 is better ? On the 810, i can just hit the walkman button, and the last song plays..hit it again, and it turns off. very nice..on the 880, it bring up's the menu interface , which I then have to select play again. and if i want to browse artists, well there's another 4 or so button presses.
Anyway..i don't expect to convince you, and i'm glad you like the phone. All im saying is that i don't because it's harder and less functional than my 15month old W810i. Perhaps I'm just too stupid to get it...that can be the only explanation.
