Hey guys, was just about to buy the w960 online, then thought bout the camera, and what I'm looking for in a phone is either 8gb built in memory or atleast expandable memory card slot, touchscreen(most preferably half touchscreen and half tactile keys), and a 5 megapixel camera(or more)...any suggestions as to what phone I should buy? I was looking at the Samsung u900 but it didn't have enouch touchscreen for me, so ryt now its between the u900, w960i, or samsung f480, help? and if you have anyother suggestions, plz post them!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970this one is better it has everything p1 has but with walkman player and 8gb memory
btw anyone who has this phone know wut is the latest firmware? And oh yea the downloadable themes and games is out of this world it can virtually play any mobile game made for nokia or sony
This is fone is really good in my experience i love it, but of course there are things that i don lyk about it lyk the non able use of the front camera for pictures and u have to use e an adapter to use the headphones yes this phone has faults, but the touchscreen is remarkable and sensitive but not too sensitive so its not hard to press, but wut fone doesnt have bugs there is no way that a fone can be perfect this fone is really good and has filled virtually my mobile needs.

Price fallen tremondously,a lousy plastic with same features as P990i half its price.Camera outer rim is too large without any purpose it scratches on surface,touch is a little hard press.Internal mem 8 GB u hav to creat folders to save which r washed after reset. G900 is only 5Mp otherwise same.Se must manufacture highend fones n sweden not all n China. Only prior models of P990i were n France.
This phone looks really sweet, flick through 8GB of music album art via touchscreen and write sms's fast with handwriting recognition, cool!
dew, 05 Jun 2008i know its a lil weird to ask this but can you not compose a text message using the keypad? do... morethen what would be the use of the keypad? just calling?... =) of course you can write text messages with the keypad, in fact there's three ways to write
- hand writing recognition
- virtual keyboard
i know its a lil weird to ask this but can you not compose a text message using the keypad? do you really have to use the virtual QWERTY one? i'd really appreciate your answers. thanks much!
ken, 02 Jun 2008hi. may i know how to make the alarm ring when its in silent mode ? silent mode means no sounds. How do you want to make ring wen in no sounds mode. strange ken
I own dis phone and i can comfirm that it rocks. if you like music like i do, its the way to go. its basically the smartest amongst smart phones. It has a business card scanner, I have used dis function and works quite fine. you have to be smart to use this phone anyways.
to karim:with the wild imagination of the three main disadvantages:
there is wifi.
the sound quality is the best in all the phones around.
the video quality is way better than the iphone.
but you have three problems:
1.you cant read.(this is really a big problem)
2.you cant count:"u told us about 3 problems(which are from Ur imagination) but u said if these 2 problems get solved.
3.you cant see.
iIn my opinion if those 2 problems are solved I'd definitely prefer your imagination to my cats.
arjun64, 04 Jun 2008is the phone really good or just a waste o money????i will say thats this is a waste of money.. not worth at all.. thank you
W960i is the average of iphone & N82 -
1. It has 3.2MP camera which is the average of 5MP(N82) & 2MP(iphone).
2. It has 2.6" screen which is in between 2.4"(N82) & 3.5"(iphone).
3. It has LED flash which is better than no flash(iphone) & not better than Xenon flash(N82).
4. N82 has built in GPS, iphone doesn't have GPS, W960i doesn't have GPS but you can put an external one.
5. The touchscreen of W960i is also average as N82 doesn't have touchscreen & iphone has awesome touchscreen.
6. The price of W960i is also in between the prices of N82 & iphone.
In India, you get this phone without the Bluetooth Headset. Can somebody tell in which countries this headset is available as a part of the complete phone package?
I do not yet own this phone but I read in its User Guide that it has a Business Card Reader. Can say how effective and easy to use is it. Maybe someone who has this phone can comment.
Karim, 03 Jun 2008I think that W960 is one of the greatest mobiles that Sony Ericsson produced, and the 8G memor... moreWho told it doesnt have Wifi, of course it does...n the sound is NOT 'extremely' low...I find w960's loudspeaker the clearest of all n loud but not that loud...yeah the video is not that good...but then also it takes over iphone anyday!!!
