There are some very good features and the camera is decent in term of picture quality and user interface. However if the camera is too close to an object you wont see anything This is also a good phone for someone who has to swap SIM cards alot as the SIM, memory and battery are all separated from the flip cover in the bottom of the phone. … Read Full Review

I've had my K850i for over two years now. In the last 6 months of owning it, the phone would just go blank, vibrate and restart itself maybe twice a day. When it does this, it wipes my SIM card, memory card and all the phone memory. I've updated the firmware 3 times to try and solve this, but its no use. I'm using it as a backup phone right now, because my other Ericsson C905 (the next model after the K850i) suffered speaker failure. Two ericssons in a row being faulty. That just poor. I'm… Read Full Review

Sack of cack, had 4 software upgrades, 2 new keypads & screens. Even the guy from the T Mob. shop said it had been a total disaster since its launch. My 2 sons also had k850i's & suffered similar problems.
Mine was repaired 2 months ago & now has a mind of its own, again sending random text messages.AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!… Read Full Review

I would like to point out, i had this phone on Orange and O2, and with both Networks i had PERFECT signal.
Where do i start? compared to new phones on the market right now, this Sony lacks many features such as decent Java games, it does come with some but all 60 second DEMOS. The camera, for a May 2008 phone is SUPERB. The quality is brilliant and the zoom is even more amazing. Also the buttons are very small but very stylish however the phone is rather chunky. The video quality also isnt… Read Full Review

I don't usually write complaining reviews but boy, the Sony Ericsson K850i is a bad phone.
I'm on my 4th handset in just over a year. Every time, it started switching itself off at random and eventually, switches off and never comes back on again. Every time, I went onto the Sony Ericsson website for the suggested software upgrade which was supposed to fix the problem but it never did.
I'm a total text addict and have found the buttons very hard on the thumbs- I've now even got hard skin on… Read Full Review

Had this Sony Ericsson K850i phone a year and really do not like it. It keeps trying to send texts to the first person in my address book. It occassionally freezes. Don't think the camera isgreat (which was one of the main reasons I got it for) and the MP 3 player ( although sound is good I find really fiddly).
ALso fing the key board too small… Read Full Review

i will never ever recommend the Sony Ericsson K850i to anybody. sure it has some good functions, my camera works well for me. but overall it sucks really bad. my phone keeps freezing for no whatsoever reason and that keybad lights and camera lights remain on which is such a waste of battery! my speaker has also broken down twice in 7 months when i don't even use it often. such a lousy phone. i have lost confidence in SE products. will never recommend it to anybody!… Read Full Review

I have had this Sony Ericsson K850i phone for 15 months and have loved this phone, the use to navigate to all the features on this phone is very easy a 5 year old could do it! I got this phone for the camera but was pleased with the mp3 player and video functions on the phone. The memory card slot is easy to get to without removing the battery so no need to turn off the phone.
It has only just started to loose battery life a bit quicker lately but what do you accept for a phone of this age they… Read Full Review

I love this Sony Ericsson K850i phone (well when I first got it i did!) It has a really great quality camera, its easy to use and has everything that you would want on a phone
I have had quite a few problems with my K850i, they started with my media files and phone numbers being randomly deleted or disappearing, turns out I had to perform about 3/4 software updates to correct this.
The most recent problems I have are that my phone either freezes, vibrates and then turns itself off or resets what… Read Full Review

DON'T DO IT!!! Do not buy this phone!
I have had all of the problems listed above! I got my first K850i in June 08. The speaker died within 2 weeks and could not be repaired so the phone was replaced. Since then I've had the screen, the software, and the fascia all replaced - basically the entire phone - and it still doesn't work! it crashes and constantly needs rebooting, the screen freezes and it needs rebooting, the 'end call' button freezes and needs rebooting, the sim card won't register -… Read Full Review

I have now had the Sony Ericsson K850i for over a year and still very impressed with it. It is slightly heavier and chunkier than most phones out today but with that I have found its less likely to get damaged or for the screen to break when its dropped. Believe me, this phone has had alot drops but the screen has stayed unbroken and unscratched.
I did have to replace this phone after two months because I accidentally dropped it in the washing up bowl in my kitchen! So that's not the… Read Full Review

Well there are alot of good features to this Sony Ericsson K850i phone if you want to use it for music, photos & videos thingy but if u want to use it as a mobile phone itself. I would say get a Nokia 1100 with a touch light. All in all I'd give this phone a 7/10 .. decent rating because I was 1 amongst the first few customers to buy this phone in India and I'm very used to the features I like in the phone starting with semi touch screen. Also because i can handle the weaknesses of the phone… Read Full Review

I've had this phone for 8 months and I'm already on my third replacement. Both times I had to replace it because it decides not to turn on, except for the keypad and the only way to tunr it off is to take the battery out. Now the keypad is getting temperamental. I would not recommend this phone… Read Full Review

I loved this phone and although it is my 2nd phone in 8 months, the 1st phone was lost after 2 months? Anyhows while searching the WAP for cinema listings my phone went off (but keypad stayed lit) which it has done on about 5 occasions while either listening to music or watching a video but normally comes back on after about 10 seconds, this time the phone did no come back on (but stayed lit) i had to remove battery which didn't sort out problem, and now when charging the on/off button was lit… Read Full Review
