i have bought this phone about a month ago
the performance is good and the bass boost speakers are very good and are louder than most. I compared the sound quality to my friends Nokia 6111 and mine is slightly louder and the sound quality is much better, and stereo widening is like surround sound. unfortunately i went canoeing and my phone fell out of my pocket into the canoe and sat in a puddle of water. no problem. got out the hair-dryer a put it in the sun for a few days and it was like new, i highly recommend this mobile. please leave a comment if i have been helpful. ooh before i forget, my screen has no scratches on, but the silver piece round the edge is just as easy to scratch as any other mobile.
I was quite attracted to the W395 because Sony Ericsson advertise a sratch resistant screen. I'm obsessive about scratches and always keep my phone seperate to keys, coins etc.
I was gutted to find that after four hours of owning the phone, the screen has light scrathes on it! How they were caused I have no idea, but obviously the blurb about it having a scratch resistant screen is absolute tripe.
Dishonest advertising on Sony Ericsson's part.
The W395 is useless to support all mp3 bitrates and classifies the media as unsupported format what use is it then as a walkman model anyway, as i spent good money for nothing
PS: MR CHEESED OFF

Hello. Im a big SE fan and am using 2 Walkman phones. This phone is similar to W302. Its a low end Walkman phone which does not have Flash lite themes,no shortcut button, cant install themes and no track ID. I bought a W302 and sold it after 3 days of usage as i was not satisfied at all. I hope the sound quality here is way better. Body and color looks nice though.If you plan on buying this, i suggest you try it out first and make sure ur satisfied 100% otherwise ul end up selling it later on.

iv had the w395 for two weeks the sound is great the double speakers at the back of the phone Allows for fantasic sound and the fact that it takes up to 4gb m2 card is good .as with sone uther sony ericsson walkman phones only go to 2 gb max . and its easy to use

Cnt wait. But if any1 knows what games are on it, plz tel me, or give me a site for FREE Motion games. Plz ppl, chow.

You dont have to download this. If you still cant see it, try listening to the radio using ur headset and click MORE, there you will find tTRACK ID and try it to see if it can find out who the artist and what the song is. Enjoy!
thanks coco for your help much appreciated. i have looked all over my phone for the track id and i cant find it anywhere. do i have to download to get this option from se. can u help me at all with this.
steve, 17 May 2009i have the se w395, can anyone tell me if i can download themes for this fone, and if u can, c... moreyes you can download themes in most SE phones except for the low end ones. Check out Lasyk.com, they hade hundred sof themes to download. Track ID's feature is for you to be able to know the title and artist of the song. For instance your listening to the radio and do not know who the artist is,just click on Track ID and it will search it for you using ur browser. Hope that helps.
