i have w200i but this one seems to be a step up with features like bluetooth,1.3mp camera and slider design but a little bit disappointed with the screen quality the screen should have been at least 176 * 220 pixels
rapter, 21 May 2009to my knowlage Sony ericsson w995 is the best music-centric mobile phone for now....wait for excitement to come and beat all SE bashers this year and coming year, just see now what SE has to offer, the fun begins from this month. going on live on 28th may anouncement of X2 and X5. one will be WM other will be android. touch screen capacitive and more to come.plus the anouncement of full Idou specs which is far far better than what is presently anticipated. This is just the beigning.

Anonymous, 19 May 2009I would highly recommend getting a W580i instead of this. The W580i will be almost the same pr... moreyou give me examples of SE phone in any price range and i will give an alternative with better feature and mostly lower price.
Annoymous, 19 May 2009Dude, nokia fone is rubXiXX in low and mid-end, SE provides better spec and experience in same... moregive examples buddy....
In all price ranges there are always other companies phones that offer better/more features.
SE is overpriced...there is no doubt abt it.
I would highly recommend getting a W580i instead of this. The W580i will be almost the same price when this is released but it has much MORE features. Such as the REAL Walkman 2.0 player, BIGGER, higher quality screen, better build materials, FLASH LITE, 2.0MP camera (not 1.3mp) and MEGABASS... The W205 lacks all these functions!
Dude, nokia fone is rubXiXX in low and mid-end, SE provides better spec and experience in same price.
obBi0, 17 May 2009I've noticed some users don't know the difference between musical quality and music loudness..... moreI dont think so...Till now all phones SE produced had exaggerated bass and treble with no midrange.
About samsung, they sound good coz they use the same dsp as those used in ipods and its better than SE.
Old nokia su*ked in music that is not the case now...if own a shop then u shd be having some latest models of XpressMusic phns with u....try them on
I've noticed some users don't know the difference between musical quality and music loudness... Nokia is far better in which concerns to blow your ears out... and S.E. makes players/headphones in which the major concern is the quality, not the loudness. So if you use the same headphones in different equipments (nokia and s.e.) you'll notice that S.E. offers you a clean, sharp, separated instrument sound; you are able to distinguish all sounds clearly and smooth, with very high quality; it's due to a better software in mp3 decoding, it's due to a better understanding of what music is all about.
Besides this we have the users who don't know how to use the nowadays headphones: you really need to place them correctly in your ears so you can feel bass the right way... that's why there are different sizes for each ears... I work on a mobile store and I'm telling you, even Samsung offers a better sound quality in general than Nokia does. I'm not a fanboy, I just read the facts and that's what my experience tells me; XpressMusic is a brand, just like Walkman... brands are for selling
Anonymous, 10 May 2009"has the best quality of all the music fones out there!" better than W995 and 5130XM??? I ... moreCan you tell that which is actually better in sound quality SE W995 or Nokia XM 5130 ?? via headphones(if the same headphone used for borth)???
Kands, 16 May 2009Musical taste and experience is highly subjective. just some machines can not decide. Todays m... moreI never said that SE sound bad...You say that you have listened to many brands including nokia...what i say is that u need to listen to the latest nokia XM-series like 5800 and 5130...
Also if do get a chance...then do tryout SE W995 and im sure you wont like what you here...coz the readings and almost as good nokia 5130XM

Todays music when goes more and more electronics looses its juices. i was horrified with some of the bose speakers. still they are costly. i need not project any company for any means. i am not fan of any company. if SE is not good, i wont hesitate to blame it. for eg. nonsense call history in their phone. but when it comes to affordability and music they are doing just well.
W705 i had it for less than 2 weeks !! My worst experience of SE ever and i was a fan before i've had a few SE's and this one stank!! Software problems from the start freezing and shutting off at akward times !!
kands, 15 May 2009Music is all about the total experience. not just clarity or loudness etc. please not SE W980 ... moreohh....so in ur opinion all these experts are just st*pid idi*ts who dont knw what they are doing...
If u ever get time to search the web do chk some readings of latest HD audio of latest high performance PC motherboards and see the resemblance in readings with that of the latest nokia Xpressmusic phones...
now don't say that ur walkman sounds better than a high end PC motherboard's HD audio processor.
How lame can ppl get???
be a fanboy...don't get blinded by it
