In Portugal the Sony Ericsson W980 with vodafone software menu is bad for vodafone. Many images vodafone in the phone. Original software menu in sony ericsson w980 is good.

Jimbo, 24 Jun 2008Dont like it, bit disappointing really! No flash or autofocus? Clamshell design-so outdated! S... moreif ur more into photography u should go fr the cybershot phones
the walkman phones r fr music lovers
liza, 18 Dec 2008I want to have it,,is it worthed?yes ,its really good
which one do u have rght now??
nope... clamshell phones are not outdated. they are so elegant. it is whether you know how to appreciate it. the buttons are nice and evenly apart. they are very nice to press. i love how the phone can be "shaked", even when playing games. the mp3 player is superb.
Im wondering y did SE ditch the fm radio w/o headphone? R they saving it for the "touch screen walkman fone"??? This yr is not a good yr 4 SE. Hope they'll do better in future.
Dont like it, bit disappointing really! No flash or autofocus? Clamshell design-so outdated! Some nice features yes but come on SE ,u can do better than this!
To Nakx as far as I know you can't. I know it is impossible to accept Bluetooth files using the external screen/keys, a bit disappointing
Do you think we'll be able to access phone functions using only the external display and buttons? Like reading messages, or viewing missed calls directly from the external screen without opening the phone? I know N76 has this function.
Also, that phone looks long when it's fully opened. Looks like around 15-20cm full length.
w980 is a clamshell phone but i need it in bar and camera quality need to improve just like k790i.
What a beautiful looking phone, pure elegance, like a fancy evening dress. I wish it had VoIP WiFi though. My current phone does, and the ability to make free calls and surf the net for free is unbeatable.
Why doesn't any preview/review on this site analyse sound quality is a mystery to me. I have seen 3-4 reviews of music phones and there is no mention on music quality here.
I mean, this is a music phone, and most potential buyers of W980 care MOSTLY for the sound reproduction quality (clarity, volume, bass, earphones, distortion levels, competition with Nokia, Samsung). I hope that there is such a section in the full review.
Uzor: You're quite right. I think that the claim that this was the first was made by somebody not so knowledgeable. It certainly wasn't a claim made by SE. LG also made at least one phone with this feature. The one I know of was a CDMA phone though.
I really dont think that this phone (the Sony Ericsson W980) is the first to feature the FM transmitter. The BenQ-Siemens EF71 has that feature.
gsm is supporting nokia now for a long time.u can understand that,they says camera is not good.but if u look at the sample pictures.it is sharp and colours are great.it is great evn if it doesnt have auto focus
