I had this phone for about 12 months.The internet connection is very good , the gps is accurate , the photos are sharp , the sound is clear , but i had a problem with it , after 26000 slides exactly it started to damage, the speaker and the camere in front didn`t work anymore , when you slided back up the screen wouldn't light , but with all this i would buy it once more!
good sound, i dont yet get any problem for the past twelve months may be i'm good user
Sorry but the phone is not so good, my just breaks down, you know, when it slips, the Options button and select do not work, even under warranty.
I've been using this phone for almost a year now, and I got to say this is one of the best Sony Ericssons I have used. I have friends who use SEs too, but theirs' always freezes randomly or is just slow.
The W715 is very stable, fast, and you are able to download and run many Java apps and games. GPS works flawlessly, and Wi-fi is perfect. The Walkman on the W715 is many, many times better than my other mp3 player; sound quality is exceptional, bass is distinct and has clear high tones.
Here are some pros and cons of this phone:
- Sleek & stylish design
- Fully-featured (GPS, Wifi, Java, text-reader, Walkman)
- Phenomenal sound quality
- No reception problems! (Many other SEs have this problem..)
- Installed software is great, and fast
- Build quality is rather cheap
- Dialpad can be hard to press at times
- Earpiece is not as clear as it can be (sounds like sound is coming from a tin can...)
- The speaker quality is quite horrid. If you set your phone to speakerphone, you may hear a bunch of garbled sounds at times, but still audible.
So in conclusion, despite the poor build quality and sound from earpiece and speaker, I would give this phone a thumbs up to anyone who is looking for a fully featured phone (not smartphone though!) with exceptional sound quality for listening to music.

W715 have excellent multitasking and is able run at the same time 6-9 small app steady. For Skype-calls is be available for special app.
Jingo v., 21 Sep 2010I'm using this unit right now, so far, what I like most about this phone, its brilliant design... moreits not a good phone when we think of price.we can not skype call,nimbuzz call,low sound,its not have enough software as like nokia.
i buy 189euro.totally waste of money.its nothing support you can not skype call or nimbuzz talk .only chat.speaker sound is 100percent low.....like lowest quality set around the world
I own it since october 2010. The 5th Sony Ericsson for me ( after T230, K310, W660, w910 ) and I must agree, it's one of the best phone from the market (ofcourse, in its class, non-OS phones) . Very smart and reliable, this phone met all my expectations! GPS works flawlessly, it sounds nice, loud and clear ( after some mods ), the battery life suprised me with 5-7 day without charging. And I'm using it heavy day by day. Slider count proves it : 14.000 and growing !
The screen is nice, good colours and good eligibility in direct sunlight !
- I have some problems with Wi-Fi. I mean, I have to set it manualy for every hotspot.
- Music player has only 5 bar equalizer with just +4,-4 ajusting range. LAME !
Had this on a 24 month contract. Within a month it stopped working and had to go in for repair. In the months before the contract ended, it took increasingly longer to switch on, if it lost signal it needed a reboot to find it again, and the memory card packed up.
Nice phone when it works.
ACERalph, 30 Jan 2011lol.. its w705 that dont have gps.. while w715 have gps..not all phone maker place all the spec in one model
is the best one model, but pay attention at Speaker Phone Mode. I'm very satisfied of this model. I'll recomend this model.
Is there any problem with the slider (ribbon) and the keypad after using a long time??
highly recommended phone!
Almost complete specsheet plus elegant design.
Sound quality through headset is awesome. I've tried both walkman and xpress music phones but in my own experience and opinion sound quality from walkman phones is better than that of an xm phone.
I use it with a philips headset with dynamic bass reflex. I totally love it.
Thumbs up walkman!
