Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson W810i will make a photo buff happy and keep music junkies jazzed. The phone has a great user interface, is easy to use and is attractive. Most important, it has very good voice quality and reception.
Pros: Smaller form factor that feels very nice in the hand and a fashionable black body that will appeal to a wider audience than the W600i’s bright orange. 2.0 megapixel camera that takes great photos and videos, with strong camera software that has an excellent UI. Good phone reception. A nice set of software both on the phone and the PC make it easy to rip and transfer music tracks. Bluetooth is solid for transferring files and working with Bluetooth headsets. Very nice ...
Cons: The backlight on the number pad could be brighter around the edges. The limited features in the WAP browser won’t be attractive to the web surfers who need more than WAP content.

Summary: In fact, I see no reason in replacing the K750i/W800i with the new model, if only you need EDGE or the fourth band – GSM850. Other characteristics are comparable and my advice is to wait for the next model. It will provide more improvements including hardware ones. If you like carrying out experiments with software, know that software for the W810i is impossible to install on the K750i/W800i for handsets are physically different.
