Sony Ericsson W850i
Advantages: Everything on this phone is an advantage, Camera & Music Features Etc
I purchased one of these phones from ebay and I must say that I fell in love with the design and feel as soon as I took it out of the box. It was also one of the easiest phones I have ever had to use and is in no way complicated at all - It's perfect for beginners but done have some great features on it too which I will go into shortly. The bit I loved about this phone was the possibility of identifying a song or track which you are listening to on the radio etc. All I had to do for this was select the TrackID from the main menu and then hold the phone next to a speaker that was playing the track and within a few seconds I would have the name of the singer / band, name of the song and the CD it is on - It's amazing especially if you like the sound of a song, don't know who sings it but would love to go out and buy it or download it.
Anyway enough about TrackId, let's look at the other features of this phone:
It has a 2 Megapixel camera with an LED flash which allows you to take some amazing pictures even in the strangest of lights. It also allows 2.5 times digital zoom so you can get closer to subjects and also allows for video recording as well as a little camera on the front to make video calls. I really loved the quality of the images I could take with this camera - It was the best camera phone I have ever owned and I never had any blurry pictures to contend with either.
MUSIC - It is a walkman phone after all
This phone has everything that you require if your a huge music lover, it even has it's own media player built in so you can sort all your music by artist, track etc and create your own playlists. It even has a Megabass feature which allows you to enhance the bass and give the music a much more beaty feel etc. You can also download music to your phone and not to forget the TrackId which I mentioned above.
Everytime I was away from the house I would be on the internet via this phone as much as possible as it was quick and easy to use. It has a full internet browser built in with support for images etc and you can also get the news etc to your phone as and when it happens with the web feeds option. The screen also allows you to view websites with quality as well and it's not a struggle like some other phones can be.
The phone book on this phone allows you to store enough information for each person you want in there and is very easily accessible too. It allowed me to store the telephone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and much much more for each person.
The phone also has a stopwatch, alarm clock, tasks section which allows you to set reminders etc for things you need to do, a calendar, a timer, a notes section so you won't forget anything and a flight mode facility so that you can use it on aeroplanes etc but won't affect anything as it stops the frequencies from transmitting and causing issues.
One thing I done a lot of with this phone is text, text and even more texting as it was easy with the T9 (Predictive text input) and you could also record voice notes to send in a message as well. I also used to use the email functions of this phone and whenever I had a new email it would warn me with an onscreen message and audible warning.
This phone has bluetooth, infrared, A modem so that you can connect your computer to the internet via this phone at anytime wherever you are, usb mass storage which allows you to move items between your computer and phone etc and a synchronisation function which allows you to contacts and calendars upto date with both computer and phone - Great if you rely on your calendar so you can update one with info and then the suynchronisation process will update it on the other.
I would highly recommend this phone to anyone and they can be picked up pretty cheap as well now as I think I only paid £20 for mine.
Summary: Best walkman phone ever - Brilliant if your a music fan
