Camera is a lil bit suckish, external dsplay is unsseenable under the sun, no video recorder. Keypad is al lil too hard to press uncomfortable for fast typer, speaker is suck, big time when at full volume. Speakerphone is very suck barely can hear.
Reception so far is ok, battery life is ok. No big clock on standby. No battery status percentage. Best earphone, best Walkman keys outside.
Best Walkman, average phone.
At Malaysia, you can get this about RM368..

are there anything to help it play the files?
This phone sucks...
The menu is the worst in the W series...
There are many options missing.. font size, the "gesture control" really is just not usefull it works when it wants.
The keypad is terrible, the "call" or left button and the "w" button just stop working you have to press it so hard . The Walkman player is terrible, it looks like the phone has not the necesary capabilities to run the W player.
Signal is so bad, I had it with TIGO in Colombia, and the W380 show "no service" in some places where a Motorola Z3 had 3 and 4 of 5 bars
I´ve had some Sony Ericsson Phones: Z200, K300, Z550, W380, T230, and all these phones are just the same "·$%·$%& , really this w380 is the last Sony Ericsson I´ll have... this brand is making worst products every day.. the only good sony Ericsson I´ve ever had is the Z600.
this is the third day that i'musing my brand new W380. and i'm hoping that nothing bad will happen to my phone as time passes by. HOPINGLY!
After 6 months, this phone still works like brand new. No problems with mine! Money well spent.
well I bught it and i think its a pretty good buy for the price. I'm enjoying it.......atleast for now
Dont use it. Camera quality is not u to the mark. Plus ther's no video cam option
This phone is OKAY. I have the w380i version. I've had some problems with the phone all of a sudden not recognizing the memory card but that is solved by restarting the phone. The camera is dissappointing and so is the fact it has no video recording or flash. Walkman functionality is good but the fact that you need to use special sony headphones can be annoying. I've dropped a few times and it is a sturdy well built phone. I like the shell design a lot, it was one of hte mainreasons i bought the phone. Also the SARS raiting is low, i think it's .74 or .64 . The gesture control is really cool when you don't want to talk to someone but don't want to give them the IGNOREd answer that goes straight to voicemail. It just mutes the call so you cant hear it but if you open up it will answer even after the gesture control. Also the speaker is not very good. It sounds very tinny. The games on the phone really suck but that's probably because i have an international version of the phone. Haven't gone on the web browser. Also the inbox/outbox for texting holds a pretty large amount of messages so you don't have to constantly delete them. Overall i'd say its a good phone if you just want the basic cell phone but with a walkman functionality as long as you don't mind the bad camera somewhat tinny speaker.
this phone is no good I have bought three chargers they just keep breaking.
Don't buy it..it hardly lasts for a month..then the display goes off..n' even though u send it to d service centre ..it just doesnt work..a waste of money

I'm on my second W380. After two months, the first one didn't vibrate when I got a call or msg, so sony changed it for a new one. They gave me one that wasn't well painted by the way (some parts of the phone look more black than purple). After another two months, the buttons don't respond the way they did before. Sony won't let me change it for anothe model and pay the difference. Plus the speaker and camera are quite bad. Seriously, not worth it.
