Written on: 27/06/2009 by novo19 (1 review written)

I've had my Sony Ericsson W800i phone now for over 3 years and have had no problems with it at all. I use the radio/mp3 player everyday whilst cycling, have over 600 tunes on it on a larger card. The camera is ok it gives a good picture when loaded up onto a computer screen. Overall a very good phone, I wouldn't touch any of the others except perhaps Nokia… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2007 by Cazi (1 review written)

This has been a fantastic phone and I will be sad to see it go. I will be upgrading tomorrow to a W850i. I would recommend a Sony Ericsson to everyone, they beat Nokia, Samsung etc hands down. They are easy to use, have excellent music facilities and more durable than any other make. The W800i that I had is still going strong and after being dropped on the floor, scratched and suffered other forms of abuse it still looks as good as new… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2007 by rudebwoi93 (1 review written)

The main problem I've had was using the usb on this phone in the beginning it was very simple to use just connect install and your done but as it went on maybe a few days even to a week, things started getting a little rusty as in I would connect the phone, my computer would recognise it, i would start to copy over some files from the phone to my computer and it would stop and say disc drive unrecognisable or something of the sort and when I went back there would appear to be nothing in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2007 by TopLittleMinx (1 review written)

I have had the phone for nearly 12 months and now it is time for us to part. I bought a crystal hard case for it shorty after recieving my upgrade and when it has been taken off the phone still looks brand new. A feature in itself for anyone who treats their phones as badly as I. I still use it for music and video but I have found that the speaker sometimes sounds a little dicky. It is not as good as I would have expected with it being a Sony. I like the joystick / quick key feature which puts… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/01/2007 by bmw e30 (1 review written)

I'll start by saying this is probably the best phone I have owned ( owned Nokia N73, 6100, 8310, 8210, 3330, Sharp gx10, gx20,770sh, Samsung e710 and others I just can't remember!)
The software does have a couple of glitches but you get used to them and they don't cause any problems, like mentioned above, if you select different themes to the default orange one (backgrounds if you like) and then decide to replace the main picture with another it will not show that picture until you turn the… Read Full Review

Themaninthevan2001's Response to lab's Review

Written on: 19/11/2006

Yeah, the Sony Ericsson W80i is a really nice mobile phone. It has a 512Mb memory card and great sounds. It is feature packed, and it has everything, even a Walkman.

“This is a great all-round phone. ”

Written on: 30/08/2006 by mesonw (2 reviews written)

This is a great all-round phone.
Making calls and receiving calls is fine, though the size and shape of the phone, together with the location of the microphone make your listeners prone to external noise. Also, for some reason, the font size chosen by Sony means all UK numbers extend onto two lines when typing in... hardly a deal breaker, but odd nonetheless.
The MP3 quality is great if you have some headphones plugged in, if a little tinny through the external speaker. It is easy to arrange… Read Full Review

i have had my w800i for almost a year and found no problems at all with it. I'm now upgrading and giving it to my daughter. The only problem now is i dont know what phone to get now!
First i was going to buy the w810i but i feel this is almost identical to the w800i apart from the colour. Now cant decide between the ericsson k800, the nokia n80, nokia n73 and samsung e900!
think it will be the k800 though!… Read Full Review
