Sony Ericsson W850i is a slider; a cell phone with an innovative design that replaces the older joystick with the five-way scroll key. A large screen and an included Walkman, these are two other hot features that have made Sony Ericsson W850i win the market. While many knowledgeable buyers often consider both features and designs, less informed users are most often influenced by the look of the phone. Available either black or white, this phone seems to give a touch of elegance to the user; the main merit here comes from the 24 carat gold Walkman logo that catches the eye and makes an impression.
Sony Ericsson W850i is a really beautiful phone both on the outside and on the inside. The keypad is modern, featuring a light effect in the form of pulses that follow the music beat. On the inside, the music player is excellent, rendering very quality music and an impeccable stereo sound in the FM radio too. The promotional package includes a stereo headset that amplifies the bass frequencies thanks to the incorporated Mega Bass feature. Music lovers really enjoy this mobile device thanks to its 1GB memory stick Pro Duo, which means that the phone can store around 250 tracks and still work well.
The software incorporated in Sony Ericsson W850i makes the management of the device more than user friendly. The drag and drop operation allows quick and easy file transfer by means of the USB cable. The Walkman software also enables the music download directly to the phone at a very high speed. A very smart feature has been introduced in the design: the so-called TrackID. If you listen to a song on the radio but do not know who plays it, you can use this piece of software to track the album and the artist. What an incredible feature!
Sony Ericsson W850i has a built in camera that renders very good quality pictures, with the possibility to use the digital flash and zoom. The video camera allows one to make 3G video calls or to record. What this media device lacks is the autofocus, which makes the model slightly inferior to Sony Ericsson K800i for instance. Despite this minor flaw, reviews claim that Sony Ericsson W850i makes one of the best Walkman phones ever released. A cheaper non-3G version of Sony Ericsson W850i is also available for anyone interested in getting a bargain. Have a look at both models and see which suits your needs best!
