Excerpt: First of all I have to say I bought this phone based on reviews, from which my interest was sparked by it's top rank on this site. Overall this phone is worth the money you pay for it, its not the best phone, but it's very usable and it's features and ui make it a winer. I guess it's only nuisance would be the navigation layout, a Walkman button (the orange one) is located inconveniently above the sliding thumb rest and annoyingly to close for comfort, above the up...
Excerpt: its a great phone with unique style and good features. if ur looking for a phone with a great features, choose this phone. powerful sound , unique style, great picture w/ 2 mega pixel ... wow awesome.
Excerpt: Another incredible phone by Sony Ericsson. Media related features are state of the art at the moment; headphones are actually far better than iPod ones. The camera is good indeed, considering that this is not meant to be a photo related phone.
Summary: I used to have an all singing and all dancing Experia X10 but after a year it went wrong and i had too chuck it. I decided that my next phone was gonna be an old style Sony Ericsson and i decided to go with the 850i. First thing i noticed was how heavy it was and that feeled me with a lot of confidence cos to me it meant it was well made.
Its like fitting an elephant into a shoebox - jam packed with features

Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson W850i was the first contract phone I owned. At the time it was the a top-of-the-range handset and impressed me from day one, standing head and shoulders above the Nokia's I had owned in the past. I got it about 5 years ago if I remember correctly and when I first picked it up out of the box it felt bulky and very complicated to operate.
Pros: Lots and lots and lots and lots . . . . . . . of features ! Camera/mp3/phone all in one .
Cons: For purists, let a phone be a phone . . . . . please !
Excerpt: This is a great little phone for all you people out there that are not phone snobs. When I buy a phone I look for three things: Its not to big (I have little hands) it has a large memory capacity and ease of downloading. This Phone is very easy to use and you can download very simply without any of this sync centre or Blackberry app centre rubbish, saving you time and hassle.
Pros: All your files and photos and mobile technology all in one place
Summary: I was searching for a small phone, with good sound, but still not too noisy or loud! At the instant of buying this W850i, there were some other options such as 5630 Xpress Music and Samsung Soul edition, but I took the risk to select the Sony Ericsson option. And I can tell you that I wasn't disappointed, but the fine music sound, the cool look with white skin that suits the guys between 20-30 years old.
Excerpt: I have owned the W850i for about 2 years, after my old mobile phone was broken. It's only the second one i've owned, but it's an excellent device - it's worked perfectly all the time even though it was already second hand when i bought it from eBay! The shape is quite thick, but this isn't a problem at all, as it's extremely sturdy and strong.
Pros: Excellent music capabilities, VERY strong and study
Cons: A little bit thick, but not too much of a problem .
