This phone.. I have no words to describe it. It's part of me!
I'm using w995 since 5 years ago, yes 5 entire years. We were watching all the idiots becaming smartphone obsessed and not obsessed with their real life.
My W995 survived falls, water and it's still fully functional.
Awesome 8mp camera (that with a camdriver the camera becames almost the same as C905's (Mine doesn't say camera, it says cyber-shot since the camdriver).
Superb loud sound that beats the crup out of almost all current smartphones (especially through headset ear speakers). I compared it's sound with sony z3, and W995 has deeper and louder sound through the ear speakers, from their normal speakers W995 is only just a tic louder.
I can surf the web. That means facebook, tweeter, youtube etc. W995 supports all these. I can download so many games from the internet (and now 100% free, if you know where to look for them), download very useful applications like water level and unit converter etc.
And the best thing, it fits in my pocket XD.. let's see your smartphone do that!
Plus I watch movies and pull a lot of attention in buses, people wonder how on earth a phone that old can be a movie player. Others complain about it being so loud (can't blame them here).
So yeah, if you want a full feature mobile phone that will stay with you for years, go for it.
It's small, it's freaking VERY durable and a great snapper (you can even let it on flat areas to take a group photo, no.. smartphones can't do that because of their ridiculous slim width). Oh and.. it can fit in your pocket, many smartphones can't do that.
I have mine since 5 years ago and still love it.
Karthick 2592, 08 Nov 2014In My Mobile Youtube was not working pls give me suggestionsHi karthik,
May I ask you,where did u buy it from?
Amazon,ebay? I would like to buy one,
I can't find any
not the quality i was expecting from Sony, weird charger port, extremely hard to use menus, sim card contact backup doesn't work, tiny hard to use buttons, kickstand is flimsy, normal sd card dose not fit uses an outdated (m2) card hard to find & expensive, & only has enough memory on board for about10 mp3's,, this phone was outdated before it was released not even close to the quality of other phones from 2009 not pleased at all
I bought my w995 secondhand 5 years ago. I've replaced the battery once, which still lasts about 14 days between charge. Its only use is as an alarm clock, and music player when i'm fishing. I will never throw it away.
These days the charging port needs regular cleaning to ensure a good connection.
