Sony Ericsson W810i Cellphones
Sony Ericsson has always designed excellent phones, and the W880i
is no exception. Unfortunately, in spite of the media package, this
phone has a few quirks which have users in a bit of a tizz.
Included rings are minimal and difficult to discern
Holding a signal has been a problems – seems to depend how
you hold the phone.
Main Features Include:
- FM Radio
- Media player supporting up to 4 GB of music
- Stopwatch, timer
- Calendar, efficient contact organizer
- Bright light for the camera or to find you way around in the
- Excellent camera
- Note taker, voice recorder
- Long battery life
- EDGE capable
Synchronization – this always seems to be
a problem, and Sony Ericsson have failed to provide a compatible
driver to synchronize through the Media Center version of Windows
Ringtones - are not customizable as full MP3 songs.
You can edit MP3 files down to 10 seconds via an editing program
and use them, but that’s a hassle.
Media - The Sony Ericsson site provides downloads
- themes, games and ringtones at no charge.
Memory Card - a 256 MB memory card is provided,
suggest you upgrade to a 2 GB.
Camera - 2 mega pixel camera
Form Factor – small and good layout. The
keypad is a bit smaller than other phones and the positions of the
Cingular and walkman keys may take some time to get used to.
User Interface - this W810i is about as perfect
as you get in user interface. It’s nicely laid out and easy
Rebates / Cashback – Cingular provides cash
back of $100.
Best Networks – Cingular, AT&T
Early reviews of the W880i include the following:
- The speaker could have been a bit louder
- Cannot charge the phone and use the headset at the same time.
Same jack used for both functions. Also, Sony has a proprietary
- Have to use the included headset in conjunction with regular
headphones. The proprietary connection means you cannot headphones
directly, but using headset jack.
- Alert tone for receiving text messages or voicemails only rings
- The 'sleep mode' is almost instant! - very annoying if your
phone is on automatic lock, you have to hit * and unlock to unlock
- Can't get rid of ringtones from Cingular. They also show up
in your playlist.
- Custom theme wallpaper stays visible when typing text messages
- can't see what you are typing.
- Only one recurrent alarm
- Can't send text message to more than one user at a time.
In spite of these niggles, users love this phone. It looks and
feels great, sounds great, takes great pictures and is a great fun
