Say it best with the Sony Ericsson

  • Excerpt: I like the options this phone has, however the battery life does not make up for the amount of options.  After 2 months the battery does not last more than 1 day.  In addition, if you are used to using other types of phones, this one takes a while to get used to.  I like the way the phone is set up, and the different accessories.  I would get this phone again, but would not be willing to pay much money for it.  I was able to get the phone for free with a renewal.

  • Conclusion: A powerful but average phone from SE. The Walkman aspect is excellent however, does not achieve media greatness due to it's reluctance to play certain video files of large sizes. I've had some difficulties using a 4GB Memory Stick Pro with the phone resulting in the phone telling me it doesn't have enough memory when trying to install software, I suspect that it finds it hard to utilize any extra memory over 1GB.
  • Pros: Sleek design, good Walkman software
  • Cons: Camera uncovered and fiddly to clean when gets dirty, keypad lock sensitive - can unlock when sitting in your pocket resulting in long unwanted internet sessions or accidental Walkman activation, refusal to play large video files even when correct video size.

If you really want a slider then this is a good option but I'd go for the k810i.

  • Excerpt: The w850 was my first proper phone (my first contract phone after turning 18) and I was the envy of all my friends. This sexy little slider certainly looked the part and felt comfortable in the hand. In the open postion I found there to be minimal wobble in the slider mechanism. Pluse the back is shiny and metallic once slid up which gives a premium look to the device.

  • Excerpt: I have owned this phone now for nearly 18 months, and it is just about on its last legs. When i first got it i was impressed with its storage capacity and sound quality for MP3 playback, particuarly through the headphones. The unit is also very sturdy, and very scratch resistant having dropped it many times since ive owned it.

A good idea but...

  • Summary: I have owned this model of cellphone for 10 months now. On first sight it is a nice looking phone with a large screen, it is however very large, especially when compared to it's predecessors, such as the W800i and the 810i. The slider mechanism works smoothly and well, the large function buttons are well placed, when the slider is closed. The keys underneath the slider are badly positioned and do not really feel to be in the right place. They are tricky to use quickly.

  • Summary: Sony appear to have have installed a ridiculous auto sound leveling system when you play MP3s. When louder tracks are played the player struggles to adjust the volume and this makes tracks sound awfull... what's worse this feature can't be turned off! This feature was not present on the older W800i. Also Sony have installed a screen brightness system, the phone adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on the ambient conditions...
  • Pros: Design
  • Cons: Sound, screen

  • Summary: Das W850i ist im Gegensatz zu anderen Handys dick. Sonst ist es eigentlich nicht schlecht. Es kann durch leichte Aufschläge schon zu Fehlern kommen. Deshalb ein Durchschnittlich.

  • Summary: Ich habe das Sony Ericsson W850i vor 1 Tag gekauft und war sofort von den vielen verfügbaren Funktionen dieses preiswerten Handys beeindruckt. Es ist mit einer Kamera mit 2 Megapixel, einer Videokamera und einer Freisprech-Funktion ausgestattet. Die Größe des Neuen Handys ist perfekt, um es in problemlos in einer Jacken- oder Hosentasche unterzubringen, und der Akku hält ca. X Stunden Sprechzeit aus. Nur das Menüsystem ist etwas umständlich.
