This is my first sony ericsson and i have to say this is a cracking wee phone. very stylish, easy to use, the walkman is brillant. Even though 2.0 megapixel camera isn't the best in the range its still pretty good. The only draw back is the buttons are a bit small, but thats a very small price to pay. Also the track id is fantastic, a real god send for me personally.
One pointer though, this phone looks a hell of a lot better if you order it in black and orange.
fantastic phone so far - i love it, it does everything i want it to...
except it keeps switching itself off!! something to do with knocking the battery cover i think...? (obviously just a tad sensitive!) this is the only problem i have with it tho.
It's not paying a Hefty price for this phone.. Motorola is going to release it's L9 which has everthing plus the best design and the perfect price. BEAT that.
SE phones has only BASS music,nothing else, listen to a song in motorola
Ok been using this for over a day. I've gotten used to the keypad, so all's good in that department. I've placed over a hundred songs in and it has very deep and full bass even more than my Creative ZVM! Excellent quality sound.
The charger's phone connector has a receptacle for the earphones or USB cable so you can listen to music or sync data while charging! Nifty feature!
Here's the truly excellent bonus: it has a built in Guitar Chord chart, Piano tone generator, and Metronome!!! Wow! I was so amazed when I saw it in my apps! If you play guitar or some other instrument, this will surely delight you!
w880 is a good set
pricesing for ori and ap set in our country
get a big difference about rm400,Why?
Love the look, buttons are a lil small, but you get used to them, lacks a flash and the radio I miss. Is a bit too easy to knock the WAP thinggie on though! Other than that, I love the phone :)
This phone is not good at all:
1. clearness of the sound is pants
2. The camera's more like a 1.2 MP than a 2MP like what they say.
3. 3G is pants tooo :@
4. V quiet even at its loudest point on msg tone and ring tone.
Taking it back 2moro anyways,,, ANy ideas on what i should get ?
exactly, my friend
I sure will miss the radio, and will buy ANY accesory that allow me to have rds radio with it, but it is super small, light and superbquality built.good screen and fast software.excellent sound and a wonderful telephone.you can take it with you instead of ipod nano, plu gmaes, plus sms, plus phone, plus videocall and internet browsing!
too expensive, but I am selling my ipod.
If all people who wrote stupid comments on this site really bought the W880, than this model will be a big success for SE.The W880 is a fantastic phone made with very nice materials and it works fantastic. Wap, mail, sms and all what you want. the keyboard difficult to use ? come on. Nice move from SE
no probs with this fone i work for 02 and the fone is wicked ive had no problems with it and ive got big hands!!!!!wanna have look homies
For ringing/message alerts, it's sufficient like my old k610i. For music, I doubt it because there's not that much space for a big speaker. With earphones - excellent sound!
could some 1 tell me if this fone is loud i see alot of complaints about the keypad but alot of people say alot of gd stuff about the desighn i aint no expert on phones could some 1 recomend a loud phone with gd memory and gd lookin
Just got this phone and here are my initial thoughts:
Design - 10
Interface/set-up - 10
SE.com support - 10
Music functionality - 10
Keypad - 2!!!
Ok, what were they thinking with this keypad? It's terrible! Yes you do get used to it but hell, what a steep learning curve! It screams "Don't Touch Me!!!" Forgivable though because of all the other aspects which were awesome.
This walkman will for sure not stop iPod, but at least it gives us a way to escape from that crazy iPod thing. BTW this phone is much better as some people try to tell you here on this website.
Nice looking phone, good features... anyone with large fingers may find the keypad a pain in the butt, keys very small (raised though), nice compact phone though.
Not my cup of tea for a phone, I'll keep my W800i.
Excuse all..how often do u guys listen to radio? Stop using FM radio as a weakness of this phone.. I think this phone is PERFECT!
WELL! at the end of the day,the W900 mite be big oldish and abit heavy BUT its got the best 2mp camera WITH AF, the best video recording and playback, a GRAPHICS CHIP! a proper comfortable keypad, THE BIGGEST SCREEN out of all the JAVA WALKMANS and CYBERSHOT, oh and NW THE TRACK-ID APPLICATION, and RADIO etc. . . W900 is the perfect WALKMAN, it gave the WALKMANS a great name AS great allrounderz til the W850 and W880 had to totaly take away such great pride and give the WALKMANS a bad,cheap name
we're talking about a good size too!
w900 is OLD and HEAVY.The 950 is much better for music ,great, but also with a difficult "keypad" and TOO BIG AND HEAVY for me, for example.We already have 4gb micro memory sticks available for w880 and newer models.So,as soon as we can have rds radio with an accessory, the w880 will be just perfect.
this phone doesnt have QVGA video recording, it has the ancient CIF video recording,the W900 has QVGA 30fps video recording! W900 stands as the best WALKMAN PHONE EVA MADE! and its SO FAR THE BEST SONY ERICSSON at video recording AND PLAYBACK! the W880 i can see is a mid-range walkman NOT a higher end Walkman like the W900 and W950!! there are stil some higher end WALKMANS to be announced but only in 3rd or more likely in 4th quater of this year, im disappointd to see W880 has no radio, it has very little internal memory, a very small screen, tiny buttons,ancient video recording res. and the camera aint dat gud bt da camera aint too important since this is a walkman
this phone look 10x prettier than the pictures i just got one yesterday for my brother and it's awsome very chic design well built high quality meterials, the buttons look too small but it's good you can use it with no problem i have a big hand and used it just fine the screen had a great resultion but it's too small if it had a 2" screen it will be great,camera has average quality,sound are good the loudspeaker is very good for such slim phone but when you plug the walkman earphones it's another world the quality is so amazing and the 1gig great more than enough and now the 4gigs are available in M2 memory cards
