What's up with people flaming this phone?either you like this phone or you don't. If you don't like it why bother to even look here ??? Personaly i am looking for a phone that is stylish(this one is to me). has good forms(this one does to me) and has good battery life. AND that is what S.E. has for sure. other brands are, most of the time, less good with battery life. Nokia may be the best selling phone in the world but that doesnt say anything to me. Windows is the best selling operating system in the world. Linux is better. Apple has the best selling mp3 player in the world, there are players that are far better. Most of the time it's about marketing not quality. And again about the phone i am NOT looking for a flip, slider of other form factor. With monoblocks there are less things that can go broke. I had a S.E. w300i but the screen went white because of the wires in the flip-system. So monoblocks for me from now on.
do NOT buy a Nokia 6300. I had one...and it would be a great phone if not for a piece of loose something that rattles like a baby toy. I sent it in for repair, and TWO MONTHS LATER, received a replacement phone with the same problem. do NOT buy a Nokia 6300!!!
The good news is the FM, the bad news is that it also got the fat lame "fast-port" on the side. Dumb and most pocket unfriendly solution.
can't wait for this phone.
I've been a Nokia guy forever, but recently have had massive issues with their warranty repair...
I would never but another Samsung (look nice, but function terribly)
I want a slim bar-style phone and this one seems to be it. Good work SE.
SE are the best. I used to love nOkias and I never had anything else then I got an SE and I never looked back :)
Hi, It will be available by February 28th.
and as I know, the price is about 390 U.S Dollar!
SE phones do have java and game support. i have a few java games and apps on my k550.
the megabass option is more than an EQ preset, as the megabass sound cannot be achieved through messing with the eq, it just distorts the bass frequencies if you push them too high. i think it does some sort of on the fly processing. i personally don't like megabass as for some songs it sounds great and others it just muddies up the low frequencies and cuts some of the high mids. the 'bass' setting is fine and sounds good with all types of music.
i am also waiting for the w960 although the change from the normal SE UI might be a bit weird as i'm so used to it and it's incredibly user friendly.
let me tell u the secrets of s.e. walkman series success ... its that they are releasing the same firmware in every phone with a updated body style ... they never try to introduce something more new to there customers ... and s.e. lacks java application and games support ... s.e. rarely introduce a symbian walkman which will be overpriced for sure cuz they like to stick into there older looking but updated firmwares ... s.e. got mega bass (which we also can hear the sound quality of this " preset " in some nokia phones after setting the equalizer for the appropriate levels remember its just a preset setting in the " walkman player equalizer " ...) im not afraid to say this but the war between s.e. walkman and other music brands have just started ... so s.e. should be careful and make something new which is cheaper ... like the upcoming w960 lol well what happend i guess s.e. had understood something now ... im still waiting for that phone ... the thing i like about s.e. is the camera quality ... but im not so interested in hearing about its music quality (what is it a sound machine no its a phone u can get the same sound quality from other branded phones) or mega bass (which is totally a fake option its an equalizer preset) im not into the firmware either (u can find it in many s.e. phones in different updated styles maybe with a few extra options in the updated version) maybe in some companies or in some places areas etc. u will see so many ppl holding a s.e. but the truth is the best selling phone in the world is " nokia " ... they dont even think about wining about there music quality but u know , most ppl knows what to choose i guess ...
