Loudspeaker i would say is not as good as the w910i or the w960i, maybe the size of the device is the main issue? the audio is clear but not as good as the 2 models.

Best speakers for me on phones (best first):

W960i
K850i
W580i
S500i
W910i
W890i

I don't have the appropriate tools to test audio apart from my 2 ears

Nice review, PK.

In case anyone wants to see them, here are the new flash menus:

First one's Bronzy. You know, the usual spinning and pop-out circles.
Second one's called Purple Sky and has them spinning circles, too, but while navigating, the icons flip in the respective direction. 'Tis very cool.

Yeah, it suits the silver W890 better, while Bronzy suits the brown one.

hey Pk, thanks for the review! As I used to love my good old W880 Im thinking of getting this beauty. But as an owner of the W910 Im not sure whether it is worth the swapping. Which one do you like better?

between the w910i and w890i i would go for the w890i, much easier and keys are much better.

The new web browser is brilliant, don't know if anyone else has noticed? much easier to use with mouse pointer on the such a small screen, looks brilliant and better than the w880i browser, excellent update from

Great review, mate. The camera of the W890 is quite impressive. Does the media player lag while you're browsing through the tracks?


Is the brown version out yet?

hey PK, can i ask for your advice? Which phone do you recommend for me between w890 and c702 as both phone specs are quite similar. At first I'm thinking 'bout getting a w760, but from the review I've read it said that the camera is awful and the speaker is not as great as I think. Thank you
