Besides Nokia, the step of Sony Ericsson also will be followed by other vendor, so that premium class cellphone market is becoming more crowded.
This candybar phone is has double face. One side shows its form as a phone. At the opposite, these phone faces just like compact digital camera.
The design is natty and simple, sweetened by stripe and D-pad button, which would having phosphorescent when press in darkness.
The modern design must be redeemed with user confusion when doing navigation. It’s not easy to familiarize when move from D-pad button to touch screen virtual button, then to D-pad again, and so.
It also happen when I typing the short message. Although the key pad buttons providing enough space so than wrong typing wouldn’t happen, its feels not comfort when writes text message with the key pad. Something else which must be paid attention, at this phone is very easy to found hand footstep, oil, or sweat stain.
But, as camera phone, K850i of course provides lot of feature to take a picture. In the side part, it provides shortcut button to activate the camera and shift button to change over from photo camera mode, video, or album viewer.
The phone also has lot of support feature, starts from ISO/ASA setting, resolution choice, various white balance mode, macro mode, panorama, flash light, timer, lens effect, red-eye effect remover, until BestPic feature for best picture choice from moving object. It also can do digital zooming until 16X and equipped by anti- shock.
BestPic feature produce great moving object quality, although there are some big enough interval. This mode differs from burst feature. Whereas burst takes all picture in continuant, best pic only choose one of 9 frame catch.
Anti-shock feature is very useful to stabilize the picture when user does digital zooming. But, the result is still not as good as normal photo result.
As a whole, this camera can present good picture quality with balance colour, soft, and natural. Moreover with available Xenon flash light.
Furthermore, K850i has other plus value, which is 3G HSDPA connection, Photo Fix software (photo editor), various music feature (MP3 player, PlayNow, and Track ID), motion sensor for auto rotation, 40 Mb internal memories, and M2/MicroSD external memory.
Unhappily, this phone not equipped with Wi-Fi connection, so that the Cyber name used by phone is felt less appropriate.
