The phone is very well made and just shouts quality at you. Although I feel SE could do with getting rid of the Joystick, nothing wrong with it I just prefer buttons.
I don't like the orange colour of the walkman and feel it does not go with the gold phone... Even when you apply one of many dozen themes the walkman feature still remains yellow.
Menu is quick and easy to navigate, if you learn the numbers instead you can navigate instantly...
File management is fickle, it's very picky on how you position files. All mp3's must be organised in an Artist folder and then Album name. For example Greenday.
You'd have greenday folder, american id--t folder, and all the songs listed here. The must be aranged like that in the mp3 folder that the phone places on the memory card. You do not need to use the software and cable provided, I prefer just to hot swap the memory card between phone and card reader on my PC.
Call clarity is EXCELLENT, loud and clear reception is always good. Music from the headset is good and so is it from the phone, although not as loud as one would like.
Bluetooth and IRDA are excellent and quick. I paired the phone with the computer and activated the "remote control" feature in the phone and could control the mouse on the computer using my mobile... Excellent little trick.
Video play back is excellent although I find it jittery if the file is more than 12megabytes in size, hence I had to re encode at a lower setting.
The camera is 2mp and produces some great shots with a VERY steady hand I think the shutter is a pain in the but although it protects the lens so I can live with it. The double LED light is very bright and really effective, you can set it to flash SOS if you're lost somewhere... Another great trick.
All in all it's value for money and SE now have 2yr warranties on their devices in the UK which is excellent again.
Design: 8, lose a point for the joystick and orange colour against the class gold.
Features: 10 has everything I want. loads to download for free of the SE website too
Performance: 10 no bugs discovered in 3 weeks of heavy use and calls are of super clarity.

2mp camera is cool

sound thru speakers is not loud
i want to know if the sound better with W700 or W800? or same sound quality?
I bought this phone a week ago and its going great, flashed with all the features, its awesome.... I bought this phone, after an analysis of more than a month..and beleive me dont go for Nokia phone, they are bulky, old fashioned and not so many features except when u are ready to chunk out big money for N series.
Couple of problems, I noticied with my W700i
1) Battery is not so lasting, But its acceptable.
2) Speaker sound output is not too loud.
3) When Radio is ON and you switch it OFF there is some weired sound that comes every time...Please do let me know is it with every phone or the issue is with my phone only, so that I can get that corrected.

Design 9, I'd rather have buttons than a joystick but it's works really well.
Features 11 Oozing with top features.
Peformance 10 Hasn't failed yet unlink my old 6230i that reset and crashed all the time.

Hey folks,Just got this phone and I wanna admit tht its a fantastic phone with excellent music,camera and ofcourse with the regular phone attributes.
w700i has low process and manufacture defect.
On what grounds do you make that wild allegation?
Take your head out of the sand, no way would a phone be released from Sony Ericsson with a defect... come on.
