SE K850i... is it worth it?
« on: October 24, 2007, 03:50:00 PM »
Is this locally available already? How much are these here?
I was excited about this phone when I first heard about it, and I thought that I'd upgrade to this one (still using a K750i   :wink: )
But I've been looking around the net and they're bashing the phone left and right:

Dodgy buttons, NO WI-FI...  :-(

Sony really messes up when they release something the first time, huh.

Makes me think twice... should I just get an N95 instead?


OT: Nagtanong ako sa megamall kung meron na 2 weeks ago, eto ang sabi ng staff nila:
"Nako ser, wala pa! Ang dami nga nag-aabang niyan eh! Siguradong HOTCAKE yan!"
langya, hirap na hirap kami ng fiance ko pigilan tawa namin.  :lol:

se k850i vs. n95?

i'd choose k850i, parang digital camera na rin kasi kumuha ng pictures eh, xenon flash pa, pero kung kaya mong maghintay, baka next month lumabas na yung katapat ng k850i, yung nokia n82 with 5 megapixels and xenon flash na rin.

skeptical ako sumubok ng k850i dahil walang WI-FI  :-(
medyo necessity na sa akin ang internet lalo na sa trabaho ko na halos lagi dapat nakabantay sa emails... yep, kahit habang nagd-date kami ng gf ko sa malls  :-)

i was actually leaning towards the N95 8GB phone, but now that you've brought up the N82, might as well put that into consideration as well  :-)

but on second thought, di naman ako makakabasa and makakatype ng japanese characters sa cel kahit ma-check ko ang email sa malls  :lol:

hehe, bahala na  :-)

uy, di kasamaan yung price  :-)
but i have a sony dsc-t9 digicam and i'm actually not happy with the picture quality, i mean compared to a canon digicam, so medyo na-turn off na din ako sa sony digicams. But nasanay na din ako sa SE phones, and monoblock yung K850i, which us also something that i'm considering. Parang ang dali masira ng N95 e...
anyway, interested ako sa N82. baka yun na lang  :-)

id still go for sony..  :-)

hindi steady ang OS ng nokia, not unlike SE! :-D

planning to get K810i this mid-december. the only thing is, it doesnt support album art, no megabass feature, not unlike K850i w/c feature both. oh, and the regular headset instead of the earplug.. seems that earplug headsets are only shipped with walkman phones..

natry ko na k850i, ang hirap gamitin, lalo na pag medyo mataba daliri mo, pag pinindot mo yung 2 at 5 mapipindot mo pati yung arrow keys, kakatry ko lang kahapon.

sigurado mod lintek ang price nyan pagdating dito.....sanay kasi ako sa mga Nokia,pero when it comes to camera para ngang mahusay ang SE,mas maganda pa nga yung cam ng Mot V3XX  kaysa Nokia na ka level nya.

P24,700 ang price ng k850i sa sony ericsson store, pwede na, compared to n82 na P29,000 ang price range sa nokia store, not sure sa ibang cellphone stores, i'm pretty much happy with my k810i, hindi rin kasi nagkakalayo ang kuha ng k850i sa k810i eh, same with n82.

one more thing about k850i, besides the 2 and 5 keypad problem, yung automatic shutter nya, mukhang madaling masira, alam ko sakit ng sony cybershot digital cams ang shutter motor eh, yun din kasi unang naging problema ng cybershot digicam ko dati.

nice review :)
may isang store na sa bridgeway ng greenhills shopping mall na nagtitinda ng k850i for 20K flat.

wow, available na N82!? might get this next year  :-)

my mom bought one of these yesterday. the keypad really sucks, nung una kong makita akala ko PDA kasi there's that touch button thingy malapit sa screen (i dunno what it's called) it's really hard to use lalo na pag nagtetext ka pero sulit na kasi ang ganda ng features. namangha ako nung makita ko na 5MP yung camera. 17k lang kuha nya.
