After playing with a beta version of this handset for a while I'll put up some pros and cons.
Surprisingly great sound quality from the stereo speakers, million times better than the W910
3mp fixed cam/QVGA 30 fps video (top of the line as far as SE goes), no video recording light
Video call support thru main camera
New SE interface with Walkman 3
Good quality screen
Rock Bubblehead (or to be more exact, an accelerometer!)
Keypad and softkeys are uncomfortable to use and press
Cheap plastic body - slippery, and just feels and looks really cheap
Camera lens no longer behind the slider (Some people prefer it this way but I like it behind the slide as it's protected)
Battery life seems a bit bad

I don't know what to say. Perfect phone
By the way, the keypad won't crack like W580 or S500.

You dont even have this phone and you are telling us how it cracks. Its a great phone with fixed errors from w580 and w760, it has a better design and a better sound quality too. Thats all
Is its video recorder good?
Because the photos and videos is the most impportant thing in the mobile i want
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2008The sony ericsson store has got it in!!!! £200 sim free or else they have it on Orange. £200!!!!!!??????????? omg! is it on Vodafone also? if so how much?
Have you picked it up in the store? Does it feel cheap? rubbish? breakable? do the buttons feel like they r gona crack?
please get back to me!
This handset is sooo beautiful. I will be willing to buy it even if there is nothing important in it.
Who knows, the keys might crack just like the W580i. I bet this phone is made out of crappy plastic. The paint might even fade away, however, the W760i was built stronger and better quality material built and has a better desgin... I can tell that the keypad for W595 is worser than W760 compared. Im using a W760 right now, and the keys are comfortable and easy to press. This W595 is probably another phone that has keypad issues... People, go for W760i! It owns W595i!!
I can't help but wonder if i will be wasting my money if i buy this phone. If you read the opinion sections, you will notice SE phones usually have issues, it could be keys cracking, paint peeling, phones hanging or freezing. Things like that. I don't know what's happening in SE.
Hope the keys won't crack... What kind of materials did SE used on w580? Unbelievable...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Of course W760i is better. W595i is not even close in beating W760i. Also, not even comparable... W760i has better battery life, better keypad, made with better plastic quality. Both designs are pretty good.. If I were you, go for W760i. I am currently using a red one right now, and after updating it, everything is perfect!!
