I am aware that my grammar is far from being perfect or even good. You are absolutely correct!
I just do not like the ´u r´ style communication especially when two not native English speakers try to communicate.
I was frank with you. You diod your homework and if you are comfortable with the W890 buy it.
Obviously, your money and your decision.
I am not delighted with the specs:
- lack of autofocus
- lack of flash
- small screen
- no Wifi
- poor image quality (check it yourself - this is subjective may be!)
So, all these are facts.
SE sales can talk to me for hours - these are facts. Initially they asked 500 USD for the W890 - the same company whose advice you trust so much. Only 6 weeks later they asked little over 300 USD.
How great is that!
Yes, phones price come down but at this rate?
Or is it possible that some greed is involved here? (over charging?)
I suggest to all: go and see, try and listen the W890 - try to send a text message or just dial - what a ´wonderful´ keypad - and if you still like it buy it. Buy two or three or more - you deserve them, you must have a nice phone you can rely.
Do not forget: SE rules, and you pay! ;)

I do not need to say ´yes´ or ´no´!
By the way, I have hard time to understand your English. May be before start using ˝U˝ and ˝UR˝learn some grammar.
I do not care whether you buy the W890 or not.
The reported problems are factual.
The tech data also.
Sop, I do not think anything can be disputed.
Undoubtedly, some people like the phone.
Who are those and how many of them? - We can only guess.
The fact is since SE looses market share while others gaining big time (up to 50%) - it is not a big leap to assume fews 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.
And most of all, what you really need to enjoy this phone is a load of luck!
If you are interested, go and look at it, try it BEFORE you buy it!
SE took my phone for repaire! They are unable to tell me when I will get it back.
The customer service is rude and incompetent.
I got a phone as a replacement what I need to take back - a piece of junk.
My W890 has multiple problems!!!!
Others may not have any problems but the dealer told me that several phones has been returned!
Dani, 01 Jun 2008@ BUFFBOY Get the Silver one ....it looks good to slickwhat about black color man.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2008You may think there is no issues with this phone but others think differently!

Reply me as soon as possible.
michelle, 01 Jun 2008yes you can buy this phone and its worth buyingThanks friend.I will buy this sweet w890i
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2008You may think there is no issues with this phone but others think differently! Just look at... moreHow does this phone have bad customer service? Did you ask the phone what was wrong with it and it didn't answer you?
Yep, the speaker is to 'Soft' has more treble then bass
but still its Loud enough to hear,
hey wanna ask whether tis fon's speaker is loud enuf? seems alot of review saying the speaker is too soft
You may think there is no issues with this phone but others think differently!
Just look at some of the reports:
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 an anyday!
But SE rules for ever (we all hope!:)
the good thing about this phone is you could expand the memory up to 4G.
You could load a lot of music on this one.
