    w850i or k800i?

    Hi everyone, im looking at getting a new phone on 3, but can't decide whether to get the w850i or k800i? The w850i has the music capabilities, yet the k800i has the decent camera?

    The w850i would be on the £15/deal, whereas the k800i is on the student promo deal - £20/month (quidco is more on this)

    Has anyone got/had these phones? Which one is better?

    Thanks

    :roll: My friend has a k800i, and i love the camera - but the w850i has trackID - a novel feature yet so cool :lol:

    Hi emasu, I've had them both at the same time, and K800i all the way. Music capabilities mare more or less the same imo!

    the walkman on the w850i is far better, better volume, and options. whilst the camera is shocking. i had mine a week and had to sell it. i got a w610i instead, it has decent camera and the better walkman. if those 2 are your options, and camera is important then the k800i is the one to get. the camera on it is outstanding!! but it doesn't come with a memory card so be prepared to fork out a little more. the w850i comes with a 1gb card.

    well it depends go for k800i for camera

    go for w850i for music or style

    I wouldn't say music is far better. The W series of SE phones are over-rated imo. The MP3 on the K800i is more than fine , However, I am not a fan of its size.

    hmmm how about we agree to disagree there

    I got a W850i delivered on Saturday and think its fantastic.

    I guess so

    One thing I do like about the w850i is the slide, feels so solid and well built and also the chrome back

    Nicely built, no sign of screws etc if I remember correctly!



    Basically this will always come down to camera quality and music+style

    yup, but the one i had wasnt too solid. rocked ever so slightly, was only 2 weeks old too. wasnt sure if it was supposed to be that way so i sold it on ebay.
    tbh, my d500 slider felt more secure so i must have had a slightly loose one.

    Really? Id take it back! The one I had was rock solid, no movement between top and bottom parts, so sturdy, best slider I've slidden! And I had D500/600/900 too!

    On K800, is it normal when going through pics it comes on but kinda takes 2 seconds to fully focus for every pic?

    I sold mine.

    I think the Chocolate has the best Slider feel

    Yup its normal for pics taken in 3mp mode

    I've got the K800i, it's a great phone although I wish it wasn't so big. I went from the K700i -> K750i -> K800i

    The K800i improved on the K750i, shame they couldn't keep to the same weight/dimensions though.

    I'm considering the W880i in a month or so when I upgrade, shame the camera won't be as good though.

    Why not wait for K810i

    if you like the camera dont get a w880i, it doesnt even have auto focus!

    The K810 doesn't offer enough of a change over the K800 for me. I might consider the Nokia N95 although I don't want a heavier phone!

    i'm new so lol it all depends on wot ur gonna use the most camera or the walkman

    anyone know whats on the k810 thats not on the k800??
    Thanks

    the body....thats about it, was messing around with it at work yesterday, software is indistinguishable between the two, does look better but wouldnt upgrade from k800 to this but would i I hadnt had a K series phone yet

    on the w850i does anyone know if you can set it up to NOT have text mesages automaticaly put in the sent folder. so rather than having to go in there and delete them manualy it dont even put them in. could do it on nokia
