I believe SE phones are the best in this world in terms of design and sound quality, only a couple of Samsung phones have been able to give it a competition in terms of pure design and UI. I realize that many of you'd say Nokia wins over SE 'coz of Symbian... but Android wins over Symbian! S we can't say anything about the UI yet (till Android gets a hold of the mobile market), the SE UI is pretty anyways.
The only thing I'm cross about is the price. I mean, the old SE phones which launched about 2 years ago, today retail at the same price.. that is what makes me go WTF!
one of the best sliding phone.it is awesome.if ur planing to buy just buy it.
you can buy this phone if it is available for Rs 4000 or 75 to 80 USD.. Otherwise there are many other better phones
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, 17 May 2009I dont think so...Till now all phones SE produced had exaggerated bass and treble with no midr... moreno one can ever beat SONY in sound quality WALKMAN sounds best in world much more clear than any apple and samsung
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!

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
