Ok, this question is aimed at any owners of this phone.
i currently have an N95 (the original one) and my contract comes up for renewal in the next week or so. I dont fancy another nokia, but will probably end up getting one if i dont find something i am confident with.
I had a w950, it was horrendous, constantly restarting, hanging. was horribly slow to access anything in the memory through the file manager, and in general, i thought it was quite bad. This may have been just the one phone and a combination of firmware problems. However, i like the look of the w960, and am a fan of the walkman series of SE phones. I am looking for a reccomendation as to whether or not this phone has the same issues regarding slow memory access in the file manager, rebooting to "recover ram" and the like. any help would be greatly appreciated. My other alternatives are - "N95 8GB" and the samsung i8510, which im not sure is even out yet. Also, the c905 looks good, but again, not sure of the release date. thanks in advance, sean.
The most powerful mobile phone I hayve ever seen. meny thanks for Sony Ericsson.

It's certainly not as slow as it would have been if they'd put an 8gb memory card instead of flash memory in. My memory's nearly full and, yeah, the phone runs a bit slower than most java based phones but not by that much. If you update the software the lag's even less...
