can't play swf format, and doesn't retain our own pre-chosen tones when we change the theme.
but overall, still like it better than my previous N95, LG viewty and K850i.
I have w900 ..is w960 superior than w900 in music quality and sound volume??
I mean the output speaker.
Having said that, the w960s music player IS the better, easier to use, more sophisticated one. ;)
However, I do ackowledge that both phones have excellent sound reproduction. TBH, it comes to what i always actually say, it depends what you want out of ur phone, and in this case particularly, if u like touch screens.
In all honesty, either phone is decent music player. just comes down to the small bits which u prefer.
I prefer the w960 for the reasons below. i like touch screen. Easy to use, best music player ive ever owned, looks nice.
But then again, camera aint great, so that is a reason to get the n95 should u want a good camera. im quite tired, so this aint coming out right, but summary: their both good. (Y) and it just comes down to preference.
ts'all good mate. : )
Firstly, most track ID software charges/ will charge soon, so i dont no what u got, but at 50pence a go, its nothing to boast about. All 3rd party providers of this service have some trial period/ clause allowing them to charge some time in the future, after all they have to make money somehow!
Secondly, You still have not come up with any reason why the N95 is better, apart from a "headphone jack". Not really worth switching phones over.
Even though u have no evidence, u once again mix fact with fiction. Even if this were true, you still would not have walkman 3.0. it is much easier to use, ive used both, and 2 things u can certainly do in the w960 is rate the tracks and set moods.
This phone is a decent music phone. I suppose it comes down to opinion which u prefer: a 3.5mm jack or an actually pocketable, great music player (walkman 3.0), moods, free track ID, great visualizations, etc.
hard choice eh?
nick Yeah i Agree on the PS3 its the best console.
Trust me man SE Phones are not Second rate. me myself seen both N95/N95 8GB Music Player's and comparing them to K850i/W960i Music Players! its a MASSIVE DIFFERENCE!
the Walkman 3.0 on the W960i has the Touchscreen which gives it the experience.
Walkman 3.0 has Visual Effects in the Music Player itself!
Walkman 3.0 has the BASS Output.
Best Visualisations iv ever seen on a Phone Music Player.
PSP XMB style Gallery .
Walkman 3.0 can be shown on the Homescreen! while Multitasking. and everything else!
then Touch Buttons on front. RR/ Play/ Pause/ FF
basically its like the PS3 in a Phone!
Trust me iv held Both W960i and N95 8GB in my Hands.
and for Music N95 8GB seems abit to *simple* compared to W960i.
Google it .see the images of Both W960i's Walkman 3.0 and compare it to N95 8GB's Music Player then you will know what im talking about.
Its all in the Detail!
yeah the ps3 is the ultimate machine in every possible aspect right, but the n95 is just a better phone than this one.
why can sony make such fantastic consoles yet produce such a second rate phone.
and reverand guy, seriously the n95 8gb has track ID, the n95 8gb has..well 8 gb, you can use any headphones with it (yes the included ones are poor) but at least they are a standard jack so they can be used as ur ipod backup.
i really dont think having "it has walkman 3.0" is a reason for it being better, thats just a name. "walkman 3.0" is no more functional than the nseries player. actually i cant comment on that.
just my main main main criticism is that a phone centred around music should have a standard headphone jack. if they really cared it would.
if the walkman 3.0 program could be run on the n95, it would run a hell of a lot more smoothly
comparing N95 to W960i is like comparing Xbox and PS3
PS3 seriously kilss the Xbox from left right side to side and upside down!
SONY are the masters!
cant mess with them..
SE and SONY 4 Lyf!
hey, some people are arguing here on a stupid topics...its like y nokia has different charger than the SE!!!!
dude, jst get over it!!!
But, nokia is more comman now a days...but SE has still got its same better reputation in the market...
when u say "i've SE phone"...it has definatly got some serious reason behind it.
Nick, give me one reason why the N95 is any better than the W960i then.
The w960i is better because it has:
*excellent music player walkman 3.0
*great bundled headphones
*8 gig memory included
*thinner (easier to carry round, an important point, otherwise id carry my electric guitar speakers with me everywhere)
*great music quality.
* Touch screen.
That enough for u for now?
So manchester united are not a local manchester club? What are you on? And the W960 inconvenient? You must have no fingers! Access the music player with one touch, sort files by album, artist, title, rating, mood (let's see you filter by mood on your N series). The headphones that are bundled with the W960 have fantstic (not perfect, but damned close) sound reproduction. When you plug in seperate headphones it only gets better. I could understand if you were simply saying that you prefer the N series - that's a matter of opinion. For example - I hate samsung phones. I hate the menu layout, I find it takes ages to get your way around the things, but some people love it: cool, whatever suits your needs. I don't have an issue with you preferring the Nseries, what I DO take issues with is you stating that the Nseries music player is technically better when this is simply not true. If you prefer it, that's fine. Just acknowledge that the W960, while not to your preference, is the better music player and I'll be happy. I have no problems with people's opinions - I'm not a religious man, but I don't judge people based on their beliefs. I just have a problem with people who put their own opinion forward as cold hard fact...
look, im not just standing with nokia for the sake of arguing with you. i genuinely think my N95 is better than your w960.
there is NO reason why your phone is better at music than mine. NONE.
the quality through my headphones i bought on amazon a fortnight ago is faultless. the sound quality is crystal clear!
people dont support man city because they think they're better than manchester united. They support them because they are their local club, its just like charlton are my local club.
Nobody has a local phone okay and this phone i just think makes playing music that little bit more inconvenient.
So, you've personally know every man city fan in the history of the sport? Of course man city fans have slagged united. They know united are better but they still follow city. That's my whole point. And yes, the majority of Nseries phones have more features than the W960. That doesn't make their music player better. As for less wires, I use a bluetooth headset so wires aren't an issue for me. But that's not the point - the point is that you're nothing more than a fanboy who refuses to acknowledge that you're wrong. My girlfriend has an N95 8gb and even she prefers the music quality on my W960. Don't get me wrong, we both agree that the N95's camera is vastly superior and overall it offers more functionality. But the W960 performs better as a music player. That's not opinion, just cold hard fact...
=====To W960 Owners=====
Just one question...
I have w900 ..is w960 superior than w900 in music quality and sound volume??
Crap - I meant to say I agree with what pointless is saying, helps if I read my posts before clicking submit...
This whole back and forth between pointless and nick is really amusing. It's funny that nick thinks he's gonna convince us that Nokias are better than SEs. I wonder if he realises he's posting in a forum for SE fans. And I love the way, no matter what irrelevant point nick managaes to make, pointless shoots him down in flames.
I agree totally with what nick is saying and to be honest he's taking the more mature position, stating facts instead of trying to sway us with nothing more than opinionated twaddle. Nick, however, seems unwilling to accept even the possibility that he MIGHT be wrong.
Think about this - u may prefer the nokia N series handsets for music. That's ok - it makes them better in your opinion. It doesn't make them technically better, but if you prefer them then that's fine. It's a bit like Manchester City fans slagging off Manchester United - it's obvious which is the superior football team, but one group of fans refuse to see past their own opinions...
