For all the hype, the new software, MediaGo, still S*cks!
You must tell MediaGo where media files are located on your computer and have it imported. Unfortunately, it does NOT create FOLDERS for each artist and the playlist creation needs work!
MediaGo does NOT HAVE Drag and Drop feature from PC to software so that doubly S*CKS!!
It's no wonder that Apple's iTunes is probably THE BEST media software (except for video conversion which it doesn't do). The simplicity and functionality of iTunes are its best features!!
Also, copying files from MediaGo to phone's media card is So Darn S-L-O-W that it's pathetic! Without this, you can't send playlists to media card. You'll have to MANUALLY and PAINFULLY create playlists on the phone!!
For all of SE phone's glory, the media software is makes is CRAP!
No try, SE, for replacing Media Manager with MediaGo but it's still a NO GOOD compared to iTunes!!
Anonymous, 07 Jul 2009w580 was mid end phone, w995 is mid to hign end phone, do not compare 2, the price that you pa... moreW995 is THE HIGH-END phone in the W series.
It may be The LAST W series phone since SE plans on Merging the Cybershot and Walkman phones, at least on the mid to high end series phones!
No longer do, or should, people have to choose between a camera phone or a media player phone!
This phone is AMAZING!! All features totally awesum..

mad, 07 Jul 2009i currently have a w580i,i hate the god dam phone.i hope this 1 wows me.can anyone tell me if ... morew580 was mid end phone, w995 is mid to hign end phone, do not compare 2, the price that you pay for w995 won't dissappoint you.
When playing music with the homescreen on flash/visualization mode will the screen black out like all other s.e. phones or will it keep the visualizations going until you stop them ?
Any answers highly appreciated !
Greetings from the Greek islands !
omg!!!!!..this phone is so good i love its 8.1 mp cam,,thank to sony ericson!!!:-)
Got it 20 mins ago and home now,,its on 16hr charge even tho there is debate i am doing what i always do and alao the good charge/discharge cycle..Hd a quick play,the themes are dramatic and highly dynamic..The slide is smooth with no wobble closed or open..ITs really classy and quite lite but solid ,i got silver,,the battery cover goes over the 8mp sensor with a slot in it for the sensor cut out of battery cover..The plug in speaker is very low bass for a small box..
Suresh, 06 Jul 2009Sony Ericsson Roooooocccccckkkkkkkkkssssssss all other brands suckkkkkkks.......i think we both see eye to eye.i dont use nothing els but sony ercsson.
i currently have a w580i,i hate the god dam phone.i hope this 1 wows me.can anyone tell me if this has any shake management like the w580i?
guys this awson work of art is amaising.i cant wait to own 1.i hope its as jacked up as it seems.
i read a review that told onboard headphone is not good sounding. I actually doubt about the review as people who bought this phone said the phone come with hpm77.
To all people who have w995,please tell me your experiences about listening to music by onboard headphone.
I am planning to buy the phone. Please reply immediately. Thanks.
does this phone switch off like the W890i? I'm due an upgrade and really like SE kit but am unsure as the problems with w890i really are putting me off.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2009Drawback if you are a thing of the past, but Sony is innovation... W995 media has interoperabi... moreyeah i noe.....bt with small tv's its cant be connected as compared to n-95 ..and n-96 ...yeah we can say its nt a drawback bt yeah its a kind of less option....
seb, 06 Jul 2009got it today 6 july 09 awsome phone , great audio (the speakers are verry loud , clear sound ... morehave u checked the gps and gprs speed and conectivity pls keep us posted for prospective buyers it will be of grt help!
se cool, 06 Jul 2009I am sure this is the Hikaru but its not in specscode words are meant for internal usage not for general public like you. It's name is W995 so better use that, do not worry about hikaru.
Wonder if its got torch facility and sos type light function,,i used torch a lot on k770 and k750 and w610..anyway will find out tommorow..I am going for full 16hr charge (but a little bit of fiddling about to see features) then the flatten/charge to full cycle for about 7 times to give battery best chance..I cant believe ive gone for s/e but this model looks like its cracked it with full features plus the walkman/cybershot quality cam we have wanted for years..I have been narky in past towards s/e with truely pathtic p990, k850 and badly designed xperia and poor video,,but still enjoy GUI, battery life and sheer smallness of some of their fones..In the k770 and w610 most of the inside is battery leaving next to nothing for electronics..
I am hoping this is the new s/e with better video ,cybershot/walkman in one device because there is no valid reason why they cant because they have the best technology and the brand behind them..Nokia need to up the audio quality and give up on n-series and build a new smartfone..Samsung are on the up along with Lg but by this xmas with android on the up and up and satio on way its going to be a very different christmas list this year..
got it today 6 july 09 awsome phone , great audio (the speakers are verry loud , clear sound stereo) , fast & smooth , never freeze , fine photos , video is good (30fps) but low rez , great design (feels good to touch it), great screen , nice shortcuts , perfect slide mecanichs , my personal opinion is : the best audio phone of our times,perfect fotocamera, still need to test gps and wi fi , i keep it :))
