This is a very good phone after all after trial use with friends. Dunno why some people got all the time to disgrace themselves and make nuisance to this public forum. Probably kidz play...kekeke..
SE phones are actually better priced with the kind of quality they offer. More valued for money i would say. For example, brands like Nxxxx phones are overpriced for the same quality. And Sxxxxxx phones are also far affordable than Nxxxx phones but much lest functions than SE phones. Its up to individuals to choose what they want.
A suggestion to the in-charge of these forums...maybe we can split the forum into negatives and positives on the same model...so that people no need to argue. For example, one negative forum on W890i let user to spell out all their discontent and nobody can reply...except on the user ask for help.
How's that? Everybody juuz go to your favourite brands forum. Even if your favourite brand doesn't continue to produce good phones then dun waste energy to convince people this and that. People have eyes and ears~~
Sony Ericsson makes HIGH QUALITY Phones at Reasonable Prices
thats just Marketing!
and Market Share doesnt bring Technology
Sony Ericsson infact GAINED Market Share! by 10%
even if they are Number 4 in the sales chart, that doesnt make them bad phones NO Not at all!
Sony Ericsson makes the BEST and HIGH QUALITY Phones at Reasonable Prices.!
As I said many times: the K850i was much better phone at its time of release than any SE phone since then.
SE dropping the ball - poor quality, éousy engineering and higy prices!
Loosing market shares because people realize SE tries to sell low quality for high price - it is abvious to everybody except SE fans!
35%!!!!! price drop in 6 weeks is outrages!
SE too greedy or the quality lousy (or both!)
Check out any phone before you buy it!
The fact is since SE looses market share while others gaining big time (up to 50%) - it is not a big leap to assume few people really enjoy the W890!
The 35% price drop in 6 weeks (also a fact!) also indicates the lack of sales.
You may like the W890 if you do not care about:
- the lack of autofocus
- small screen
- limited memory
- lack of WIFI
- weak battery and speaker
If you have a small hand you may even able to use it for text messages.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970everyone has a choice what phone is suit for his/her needs, but i don't agree that this phone is the best phone, think of it.
analyze it side by side.
as to nick and mstl they have their point of view.
so i guess think first before say anything
you see? SE really have their resolve.
even the problem in W910 are GONE!! everyone is happy with SE's phone.
thanks to the update service.
all about your whining such as user reported blah blah, 93% consument (it's obviously a lie) are the things in the PAST
complaining about the camera?
wait for 'Patty' to release, it has Walkman phone and cybershot camera.
this phone is very, very cool. i want to own one by the end of this month after getting my results to go to high school but i can't understand the money sign, i don't know how much for it. P.S. Trinidad
To be fair, i didn't buy this phone, it was free on my upgrade, which was the deciding factor in the end, previously i've had the samsung u600 (crap) the SE K800 (loved it) nokia 6680 (great but too big)
I've had a motorola and an LG in the past as well which i wasn't impressed with.
The W890 is a smart phone which does the job a phone should, im happy with it however i didn't pay anything for it.

It seems you have more than 3-4 phones (load).
Why and which ones?
How do you like the W890 buttons? can you dial or text message?
(do you have extra small hands?)?)
Enjoy your phone!!!!! I mean it! You paid a lot for it you deserve some pleasure out of it.

This phone is a major screwup by SE.

Speak about the product not yourself.
W890i Is a good good The good phone. This is my first phone. And i love it very much....like anything.
a 3.2mp camera without autofocus
is like having a music phone without a standard headphone jack.
This is meant to be a place where people who are interested can discuss this phone or ask things about it, not a palce for you to argue and complain about grammar - if you don't like the phone, go and discuss a phone you do like somewhere else!!
PS I've had loads of different phones from different manufacturers and despite 'shares and percentages' i bought this phone because i liked it and i don't regret that decision.
93% of consumers think other companies make BETTER phones than Sony Ericsson!!!!!
That is the reason SE has only 7-8% market share!
You can argue all day long but this is official data and even SE do not dispute it!
But of course some of you deny the obvious, just to be loyal to a global corporation or .... are you SE employees (PR)?

these are the FACTS!!!!!
Market share for 2008 Q1:
1: ****a has about 40% of the market
4: ** **********s
5: Sony Ericsson has only 7.6% of the market.
By the way, SE lost about 1% (compare to 2007)
Recently reported problems with W890 on this forum and other forums - check around - call SE repair service or customer service!!!!!
- bad reception
- low speaker volume
- slow software (waiting for firmware updata)
- lousy camera performance
- unit turns off regularly without reason
- battery problems
- horrible customer service
W890 does NOT have:
- NO autofocus
- NO Flash
- very limited memory
- small buttons, adult (normal male) unable to use it comfortably even for dialing - forget text message sending!!!
- small screen (unusable for web)
- NO WIFI/WLAN
If this is the best SE phone ever than no wonder the market share is less than 8% and even the Korean companies passing SE with light speed - market share increase about 50% and outsell SE easily on any day!
