Top Customer Reviews
The main criticisms levelled at the w850i seem to be directed at the main keypad, which was considered to be too stiff. I agree that this is a slight fault with the phone, but it is something you very rapidly get used to, as with any quirk on a new phone. The battery life was criticised in a previous review, but I have found it to be similar to the excellent battery life of my previous phone (W750i). I would suggest that music can be played through the headphones for around 8-12 hours at a reasonable volume on a single charge. This is more than adequate, an similar to many mp3 players on the market. Another criticism of this phone was that the keypad was too close to the main body of the phone; this has simply not been a problem with my w850i, although I can see that if an unusually fat thumb was used, this might be the case. The 2mp camera is not as good as in either my previous phone, the W750i, or in the W810i, but is still a reasonable camera for outdoor shots and static indoor shots. However, it is not something that would produce good shots in, for example, a club. If you are considering buying this phone for the camera, don't, period.
However, the real benefit of this phone is the music software.Read more ›
The 2megapixel camera is good, and it doesn't have zoom or autofocus, but it does have a fill light/flash. pics are always good - though they can be a little blurry in low light - as you'd espect.
the walkman feature is great but it is easy, especially as a klutz type bloke, to hit the orange walkman button in the middle of the d pad sometimes. you get used to this and i haven't done anything so clumsy since a week after i got this phone. and i'm a clumsy klutz of a bloke.
the menus are easy to navigate - but i'm used to sony ericsson phones having had a k700 before this. anyone who says nokia are better is out of touch. sony ericsson is the way forward...
the 1gb card you get with the phone is great! i've got several albums and hundreds of tunes and i downloaded a load of games (about 30 on at the mo) and still got over a third of the memory left. upgradable cheaply and easily on amazon or ebay!
nice and sturdy design means dropping it and drop kicking it down the street doesn't destroy it within two months of getting your nice shiny new phone.
easily connects to your pc. some pcs i find i can just plug it in and drag and drop stuff on or off the phone. but only two pcs that i used have i had to install software. available from sony ericcson site or on cd with your new phone.
basically - thsi phone is FANTASTIC! you will not be disappointed if you want it as a walkman mp3 player, camera phone, to fill with games (think lime and wire) or a standard call and text phone. it is simply brilliant and hopefully as SE get better at slide phones they will get slimmer. but as it is
5 STARS. A+. 10/10. EXCELLENT/OUTSTANDING!
