Having worked in mobile retail stores this phone comes highly recommneded. Sonys are always going have issues at some stage but for the price this is immaculate.
Robust, well featured and cheap it has the basics of everything you need in a phone. A lot of these reviews seem to be from people who wanted high end phones and features but weren't prepared to put their money where their mouth is...
Buy it for its all-round brilliance.
This is the Worst Sony Ericsson Mobile I have ever used .. from the first week I had trouble with the screen, when I took it to the Agent they said that its Software problem, and they changed the equipment..I had the same exact probelm with the new equipment I took after 2 weeks.. I didnt bother my self to return it back.. cuz its waste of time..and the agent wont do me anything.. !!! This is my advice, dont buy it.. This is the worst Ever!
had it for a week or two. battery life is awful. only one day without using the walkman. the reception is terrible, the calls are shutting down because of this.
newton, 14 Oct 2008this unit no video recording capabilities??this mobile doesn t have a vodio rec and how much the cost
oh my God!! this phone is the best one i ever had! it sounds good and nice style.. hehe
I have bought this one month ago. I am totally unsatisfied with this. It really hurts me with no vedio recording, no image zooming,no photo and vedio DJ,no remote control,small screen size,low speaker sound with no manual in equalizer and no streaming available. I am very annoyed with the headphone given with this
pack. Its better to buy k550i which is cheap than this.
Definitely the 350 looks better, but choosing it is really a wrong decision! Because the w350's color on the playback keys and navigation keys will rip off(it really does) within few weeks! So, if the good looking phones becomes ugly one within a month, Should u buy it? SonyEricsson really using very cheap materials in phones! It really hurts! Like my W580's keypad is cracking one after another as the days goes by.......
oh my God...this fon sux...ive only used ds 4 a week and then poofff!!!!everything turned into a piece of crap...my screen jz turned into a blank one without any reason...huhu...wasted 7000php...haayyy....
Ok. If you have to choose between a w380 and a w350 go for the w350 ALL THE WAY. I have finally this phone in my hands and after 2 hours playing with it all I can say is this phone is bulky and fugly. Its technically like a w350 but UGLY. The external keys are hard to use and most of the time dont work like they should. The external speaker sounds like a really bad and old musicbox. The w350 has BY far better external sound.
The w380 is hard to open and the main screen is small and UGLY. Not like the w350 that has its screen exposed (that might be a drawback) but it has better colors and somehow looks bright and bigger than the w380.
The headset are big and if you have ever used a w580 or even a w300 you will never move to another headsets like this phones have.
Dont waste your money and if you have the chance to choose between a w380 and a w350 go for the last one, no questions asked.
it's nice phone i liked and suitable 4 girls need. but where is the pictures editor. i cant find where is it?????????
i'm looking for a music phone (low price). what music phone do you think is good for me?? When i saw this walkman phone, i was interested with its feature and style. is w380 a good music phone??
i hav this phn 4 one month now...except for the lock key on da back everythings fine...i luv it...nd its looks amazing
Before I buy this phone...I had a Z550i. Well...I just want to know these few questions.
A) Compare with my previous (Z550i), which has better sound quality when it rings?
B) Is the keypad alright? (Easy typing bla bla)
I have the w380 and I like it.
the only downside is that it doesn´t record video....but other than that its a good phone 7/10
with a good experience with the T610,K700 and W810 I decided to buy two w380 for me and my gf (grey and purple), with the knowledge that its a very simple phone - no video,1mb camera, unable to record calls, weak battery etc' - but we didnt mind those functions therefor it didnt concern us.
BUT, after a month or so the OUTER SCREEN started blinking and few days after shut itself completely. happened to my phone and my gf phone as well !!!.
now few weeks after that the SPEAKER stooped working - now i can not hear when someone is ringing ,and dependent if i can notice the vibration or not. :0(
guess its a matter of days until the same will happen to my gf phone :)
