This is not a very good phone to get.
I've had this phone for a year, and it was horrible.
I'm not sure if it was because the phone i had was kinda broken (it kept receiving duplicate and sometimes even 3 or 4 of the same text message, and i had limited texting in my plan), but it was really slow and laggy anyway.
The screen is really small, and it is VERY hard to type, especially when you're texting.
There is NO way to turn of the incredibly LOUD shutter sound. However, since i had a year's experience with the phone, i learned that it you cover up the little speaker on the back of your phone with your finger while you're taking a picture, the shutter sound should decrease by a lot.
Also, when you're trying to take a picture, you have to hold the phone REALLY STILL and press the shutter button WITHOUT A TINY MOVEMENT OF YOUR HAND, or else your picture will come out BLURRY.
I don't like how there's pretty much NO options in the camera. There isn't a self-timer, panorama, etc. There's basically nothing besides the simple camera.
However, i do not agree with the review when it claims that the W8 has horrible camera quality. If you hold the camera still enough, the final resolution would be very clear. Before using the W8, i had another Sony Ericsson, and the picture quality was excellent.
