Expert Review

2 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Piling on the photo features shouldn’t mean that normal phone functions suffer. The K850i’s photos and 2.2-inch LCD look lovely – but not quite lovely enough to make up for its ease of use letdowns.
  • Pros: If mobile displays get any bigger and thinner, we’ll be throwing Frisbee phones around the place. The K850i is home to an expansive 240x320-pixel screen that flips orientation automatically when you twist the phone – great for casual web surfing and even better for viewing photos. The 5MP camera is about as sharp as you’ll find on a phone, with a multi-shot BestPic mode, autofocus and a (very) basic photo editor. Rich, powerful sound quality raises a smile, too.
  • Cons: Tiny, rock hard number keys transform everyday texting into a painful struggle of man vs machine. Do make sure you keep to the pad, though, as the ultra-gloss housing attracts your bloody fingerprints quicker than the candlestick that polished off Colonel Mustard in the drawing room. Video quality isn’t up to the stills shooting, and the menu navigation could have been better designed.

Sony Ericsson K850i

2 March 2009
  • Summary: Die hochauflösende Kamera mit dem Xenon-Blitz ist nicht das einzige technische Schmankerl, mit dem das K850i aufwarten kann. Dank HSDPA beeindruckt das Gerät auch mit besonders flotter Datenübertragung. Auch in Sachen Steuerung gibt sich Sony Ericsson mit Sensortasten und Neigungs-Sensor hochmodern.
  • Pros: Gelungenes Display, Lautstärke direkt im Spiel regelbar, Integrierter Neigungssensor
  • Cons: Unpraktisches Steuerkreuz, Zu kleine Zifferntasten
