Dear Friends, Last week I had posted a brief view about SE W850. Yesterday I bought SE W880i. I would like to inform you all that W880i is definitely a ultra slim stylish mobile. You would feel like a rich man holding it in your hand. I could see my friends staring again again on this beautifully crafted masterpiece. This phone has a most vibrant and sharp display and very very goods sound reception.
But when it comes to performance in terms of music and taking pictures, I have no hesitation to claim Sony Ericsson W850i a winner. I have also used SE K800i. But leave auto focus 3,2 megapixel camera aside, SE W850 wins again in all departments.
However I have a small request to Sony Ericsson Team if at all they surf through user opinions on this website is to bring a better user interface and better features in future. It is so annoying to have right hand activation key as menu and also if you press the joy stick at centre to go into Menu. Why two keys dedicated to Menu since a few years. Instead give user a chance to assign different feature to right hand activation key. Also we need more Phone numbers to be assigned to each contact. Why only one mobile no. one work no. These days everyone in business like to carry 2 mobile nos. and have a few work tel nos.
A big big requirement is to have a viewer fo r office documents. In this field Nokia and even Samsung has accomplished a milestone. Why Sony Ericsson is left out. We expect a lot from Sony Ericsson phones. Give us the masterpiece. Where is Wireless Lan. Give us that too.
Talk to you guys soon.
simply a good & a stylish phone for a youngster who is in to music like i am,sony ericsson has outdone itself this time.keep up the good work.REG
I had this phone for almost a month, no issue at all, batt is so awesome which unbelievable even using MP3 so frequent. Absolutely no system crash or lag issue. The only slight lag that i got is in the shortcuts. Very happy with it,my 2nd SE phone since T610 (5 yrs ago).Has been using Moto,Nokia,Siemens all the while before got this phone. Size is fabulous compare to N91 (Size Does Matter). However Voice Dialing wasn't that accurate and no Voice Commands like open MP3 / Change Profiles etc etc unlike Moto A-Series. Overall still one my FAVOURITE so far beaten my all time fav (Moto A780 by Size).
p/s: All mobile manufacturers over the world has a 5% of fault rate. Sometimes really depends on luck when your phone becomes faulty and also depends on how end-users taken care of their phone. Blaming the phones or the creators is just meaningless!!! LEARN HOW TO TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR PHONE GUYS...
I have over 23 mobiles over 5 years (not to brag just to show the stats), but so far only my Nokia 7280 the pen (having software issue) and old SL55 having keypad issue. 2 out of 23 in 5 years, you know the maths.
Wish all GooD Luck when getting new phones! I think I have pretty good luck.
Got This on upgrade, however i have to admit i prefered my W810i. The 880i is a neat looking phone and is a real headturner. However i think the camera is a bit better on the w810i, it has a light and the battery is miles better. Im currently charging my 880i every 3 days where as my 810i aboiut 5-6 days. Still worth a look though
After my two previous SE phones (K610 & K800) stopped working due to firmware crashes, I got this one. Firmware working OK so far. And the overall build is very good. On par with K800 and better than K610. Sound is bad, K800 is winning hands down. Didn't try the camera as don't need it but apparently it's worse than K800 as that was the champion. The SMS memory is the same as K800, however, and it's impressive 1000 messages so glad SE listened to the users in this respect. The reaction is much better in this one but maybe it's due to teh fact that K800 had some firmware problems from the very beginning. Still, W880 is quite agile. And its lightness is already legendary. Mine flew about 5 metres away dropping on a rocky ground and just a small, almost invisible dent.
have had no problems with my last 4 sony ericsson phones ..is it a nokia you have..my w880 is flawless no complaints..
I work in the biggest phone retailer on the high street and i've got this phone. im on my second one as the phone keeps switching off. Even the new one does the same. so i can tell u now this phone is awful and so many customers complain about the same problem
I gt this phone yesterday...
Its having a very great look..and display
But the main disadvantage is dat..its key pad is so uncomfortable..,its not havin a radio..and its speakers arnt dat gud either..
Overall w850i is betr compaerd to this 1....
apparently it is a theortical maximum of 32gb. google M2 and 32gb and you will tons of articles about it. Do you know if the 880 supports the 8gb card?
this is a nice phone but i hate the buttons n plus it is a bit stupid that u have to hold the camcel button down to turn the phone on !
but the features are great aswell!!!!!
This phone is awesome... Been using it for a month... Looks great... Features r fantastic 'n reception is brilliant...
Can anyone measure their w880i's screen? Coz i am used to large screens. My phone's screen now, measures 35 X 41 mm. I want the screen to be comparable to that so that i can watch videos with subtitles on them. Please? Whoever owns a w880i, pls measure its display/screen. I plan to buy this phone.. ",
I know that the diagonal measures 1.8inch.. so pls, anyone, tell me the length and width. Thanks.. So much, appreciate an immediate reply.=)
love this phone~!!
it is fantastic~
love the design, the walkman function~
totally in love with it~
still QCIF video shooting ??
SONY, close ur Handycam & upgrade ur phones segment
could you tell me from which site you read that? because i think its quite a leap from the 4gb cards to 32??? if it is true, i think the w880 won't be able to support it. Oh, and what i know is the largest memory stick is 8gb today. Kinda far-fetched to think 32 gb next yr right, i mean that's too soon?? Thats like a laptop or computer memory already. And that's like 4 times what is the current capacity. Well given the technology we have today, i do hope it is possible :p
I was reading that there will likely be a 32GB Micro chip in the next year. Currently I believe the max is 4GB. Does anyone know if the 880 will support a larger size chips as they come out with them?
Why can not zoom in 2mp mode? I try every settings but didn't work.And the w610i do it too.
I found some using froogle.com, you can do this yourself:
In Response to TWO QUESTIONS:
For the CD's you were talking about, when you burn songs from a CD onto your computer, they're in a WMA format. You need to convert them to MP3. If you have ITUNES, it has a built in mp3 converter. Add the songs from CD to itunes, then go to Preferences (under Itunes, or file on windows) then click on advanced, from there click on importing. Switch it from ACC encoder to MP3 encoder. From there just click on Advanced from the main toolbar menu (that is on the top when you first open itunes without clicking anything), AFTER selecting the song you want to convert and VOILA! You've got a nice MP3 file ready to put on your phone!
