Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i see ur a walkman series fan like me, well...
if u are into business phones? always need the internet in ur pocket? use msnger al time? u like touch screen? hand writing recognition? do u type sms alot? then i say w960 ( use it love it! ) thr are absalutly amazing features, such as the my words dictionary. But if u are a fan of music and style, if ur always in the car? i bet the w980 is useful alot!
now the w902 aint commin out until Q4 , can u wait? it will be more expensive. i suggest u get it if ur a fan o music and taking pictures.
This phone is cool due to the design. The function was just great. However, still can further improve on the video player format (which can only play 3gpp format). way to go Sony Ericsson.
mayar, 08 Aug 2008does se w980 have 3.5 mm audio output jack???
plz replyUnfortunately, NO!
SE includes their proprietary port in almost all their phones!
Too bad they don't follow Nokia with their Xpressmusic phone and include the 3.5mm port espl. the new Xpressmusic 5320 which includes a handsfree adapter with 3.5mm port!
Also forgot to mention
(-)(-)the Camera Lens is a very awkward position when try to shoot anything our finger covers the lens. :(
(-) Radio cant be played without the earplugs connected.
hi I purchased this mobile on 4th AUG 2008 in singapore..it came around 788 SGD (approx 24k) ..
(+)Voice Clarity 10/10
(-)We dont have the option of Cancelling the call when the flap is closed.
(-)Smudges easily visible..so daily servicing.
(-)Machine gets heated up when we play music and simultaneously charge.
(-)(-)Zoom facility only works for VGA mode only.
(-)For connecting and cancelling the call the buttons are pretty small.
So all together I can sum up For Music and calling it can be considered but for Camera strict no no....
Best of Luck
paddy , 09 Aug 2008only having this phone for a couple of days, i have found this phone to do exactly what is say... moreThanks for the post mate .. All this talk about the phone being slow was turning me off .. I'm not too worried if there is a little lag as long as the phone operates smoothly and does was it claims is can
only having this phone for a couple of days, i have found this phone to do exactly what is says on the tin. i can phone anybody very easily, text anybody very easily, look at the cracking design and glad i got one. why does everybody want things done yesterday? chill out and let the phone do what it is intended to do. so what if it is a milisecond slower than another phone. its how you feel with it that matters and i love the look and what the phone is capable of.
Fighters Generation, 06 Aug 2008well this phone finally arrived at my door today and i gotta say... bad things: slow constant ... moreya about disconecting the charger/headphones or whatever.. the right way is to tilt it upwards or downwards. u should read the user manual, its been like this for all ericsson sony and sonyericsson phones lol,
about the slow response, u say its slow, is ther any transitions off/on settings? maybe if u turn them off then u wont have the 1 sec slow response
It's true that the phone operation can be slow but it's not that hard to deal with. I was rather disappointed with the speed but around two days later I pretty much got used to it so it's no biggie. Sound quality is fabulous, especially when the lights blink at the bottom, effect is awesome. And I don't think I need to comment on it's look. Practically everyone who got a glimpse of my phone were marvelling at how sexy it was.

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2008How does it feel in ur pocket? Is it light? I am considering this or W890i which is much light... morethe phone is light but yeah its nothin special 2 look at... its way blockier than the pics make it out 2 be on the pics on comps or anythin... battery life is quite poor i found out 2day aswell.... also i've has truble with bluetooth aswell but when it does work... my god its quick... also since its touch screen on the flip... it gets finger prints and stuff all over it really fast and u have to whipe it ever now n then which is quite anoyying
take it easy people. the phone just got out...maybe it'll get better with some new firmwares...
the phone is slow. i don't have any other phone to compare it to. all the phones i have use this one has got to be the slowest. camera picture is not just below decent. i had 2 mp that takes better and clearer pictures than this. it is very light. yes it does look good and feels good. i'll catch myself staring at the nice front chrome finish. the flip has a spring that does just fine. the touch screen works great very responsive. the video recording is just below decent. again i'v recorded better with 2 mp sony before. OVERALL THIS PHONE HAS LOOKS AND THE WALKMAN.
How about the sound quality when u put the headset, does it have a big different with the others walkman phone?

Will someone who uses the FM Transmitter often, please let me know if the phone will sometimes hang when playing songs through the FM Transmitter ?
Because I owned Nokia N78 and when I play tracks through its FM Transmitter, the N78 will hangs sometimes. I will need to remove the battery and restarts the phone to get it to work again.
If SE W980 does not have this annoying problem, I will replace N78 with W980.
well this phone finally arrived at my door today and i gotta say... bad things: slow constant speed (takes about a second to do what u tell it 2,) camera isnt all that great, expected better and it takes like 3seconds to capture an image, the charger and the headphones and the usb cable all go in the same place which isnt bad but what is, is how it gets removed from ur phone... u gotta sorta bend it 1 way or the other which is really weird, the radio thing where u dont have to have ur headphones in is half true, it has to have the 1st part of the headphones in and that acts as the antenna.
good points: really loud and clear phone. the screen is real high def stuff... really clear, touch sensitive buttons actually work and so does the whole shake 2 skip track thing altho its kinda pointless cuz the skip buttons right net 2 the play button. the light for when u play music at the bottom of the fone is pointless but its nice 2 see lights flash now n agen. battery life is ok, dowload things from ur pc or mac takes a while... took like 15mins to download 214 tracks... not really sure if thats slow for phones these days. the inside buttons are non noisey and its pretty compact so its pretty good overall, has 8GB internal memory, takes onoly 2.5 hours to charge fully, quite easy and straight forward to use
hope this helps... overall i think its dissapointing but i think some of it is down to the fact im not used to the phone... its growing on me as the day goes on but im still pretty bummed about how it really looks... not like any pics on the net... totally diffrent in person
