i cant believe sony ericsson are advertising this as a movie phone!
the omnia HD can play incredibly high bitrates and has a better screen, as does the HTC touch HD, the iphone, most modern day LGs
so why would anyone pick this?!?
Why is BBCi-player in music section?
Netfront browser is slow you need another i.e. bolt browser,,mini opera..
I hate light sensor i can disable it in inn0v8 wish i could in w995...
Would be nice in homescreen clock could be nice anologue type like android..
Thats it really..
I my messaging folder i have,,write new,,inbox,,messages,,email,,IM,,and call voicemail so is that what you meant in earlier post about IM being built???
Still all these apps ive downloaded to try yet plus the other built in games,,these are my apps that ive got from the built in browser and *getjar* app or already in fone,,
Computer E book
H1N1 Scan which is for fun not serious
Lucky Numbers,,lottery picker etc
Music Mate 5
Water Level,,spirit level using accelerometer
All free downloads from handset on web..Superb mutifunction fone plus good torch ..
Today have played 2hrs of mp3 and watched Death Hospital from the free films section(1hr 25 mins) and downloaded two other films to watch tonite maybe..Also been watching live BBC1 for 20 minutes over wi-fi and bluetoothed over 90 MB of tunes in mp3 format,,Have had about 17 mins of calls and 10 texts sent/recieved and 2 MMS recieved..Done some internet browsing for 30 minutes over hsdpa ..Now on 38% battery..Also screen on 90 percent brightness.Battery very,very good and really enjoying fone but a few things i will put in next opinion..
If other people are searching high and low for the IM feature on their W995a, some phones have it, some don't. I called SE support, and the phones are available in different options from the factory, I am assuming since the phone is brand new, I got the short end of the stick. Oh well. Just thought I would pass that along, so people wouldn't think they were blind if they didn't have it.
I am on week 1 of owning the W995a handset. I was coming from a W960i, and made the switch due to having to rely on the touch screen function for common tasks like making a call, browsing contacts. I have been waiting for a non touch/slider with all the features like wifi/walkman/gps/etc. Ok, on to the review.
-Nice sleek look, it's low profile as well
-A 3.5mm input!!!
-Text message conversation feature, it's similar to gmail
-Auto rotate for browsing, and just setting up e-mail push settings
-The kick stand seems like it will break very easily
-The camera lens has no cover, although you might be able to put a piece of lens protector over it, because the back case covers everything but the lens
I like the phone, but I was waiting for all the functions that it offers.
On another note, who knows why I can't find the IM feature under Messaging? I have looked everywhere and can't find it, I have the latest firmware/updates, but still can't find the IM feature that is standard from reading on sites. I have used IM+ in the past, but if it's already built in, I would like to use that. Any help would be awesome.
nick, 21 Jul 2009omg.. really?? i tot all phones can take out the memory card at the side... gosh... and yea.... moreDon't get me wrong...I think the phone is good but I was expecting better quality from the camera...maybe my expectations were too high or something....I dunno.

i tot all phones can take out the memory card at the side... gosh...
and yea... is the camera really abd?? i bought c905 n well it suckz.... always hang wan and the speaker like so damn cacat wan.... i plan to get it tmr... now im like blur... shud i keep c905 or change it to w995....
this phone so totaly rocks !!!!, now can someone help me convince my stubburn father to get it for me . . .
Very disappointed with the 8.1 MP camera and I can't believe some of the comments on here about how great it is. My last phone was a Nokia N95 and the 5mp camera on that was 3 times better than the camera on this w995! The flash isn't even a proper flash, it's one of them useless LED flashes! Terrible. I definately wouldn't advise getting this phone if you like your camera. When I connect it to my pc, it swithes off, then comes on after about a min until the pc sees it! what's up with that!?! I also don't like the way I have to continually take off the back cover to get to the memory card. The rest of the features are great but i'd still give this phone 3/5!!!
i have W850i phone and it is great. to switch to flight mode u have to OFF ur phone then turn it on again. i guess this with all SE phones.
about the camera flash. i guess u ahve to change the mode from AUTO camera to other becos the AUTO camera dose not has the ON flash option only OFF or AUTO flash.
i have question, how is the performance of W995 and how is the software. is it laggy??
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2009Can someone please point out where the "flashlight" feature is? It's suppose to turn the ca... moreGo to ORGANIZER scroll down n u will see the icon of flashlight n the word "LIGHT" beside the icon n there r some options to choose once u click on it.
I have no regret when i traded my N82 with W995.This SE is a great one. I can download so many applications....keep up the good work SE!
I really love the sony ericsson fones especially the w series...and i am stuck with a decision to either buy the 995 or 705...they are pretty similar but the 995 has 8.1 mp cam. This fone costs much more than the 705. I m not sure which one to buy....plus i alredy have a digital camera.....soo what should I buy? the 995 or 705????? o_0
