The new firmware
I have noticed a SLIGHT improvement in GUI speeds. Not as laggy, but still not a decent improvement (better than nothing I guess).
Camera quality seems to have decreased - have to use a bit more to know fully.
Music - bass is slightly increased. Me being a high-end audiophile, the difference is there, but again, the difference is only slight. Treble / high-ends seem constant / unchanged.
Visual bugs that I saw in the previous firmware are still present on the new one.
Although I would suggest upgrading the firmware to fix possible problems, you HAVE to backup your data. The update will format the memory and you will lose whatever is inside the phone. Too bad the W980 don't have a memory card since I couldn't backup my applications (and I don't use the SE Suite - too much bloatware involved). The phone's firmware also resets EVERYTHING setting-wise. Basically, it is like starting your phone from a factory state - you have to re-set everything to your liking. I should have waited till the update via GUI was available... Updating via PC should need approx. 80MB (depending on what firmware you have now and where you live)
Hope that helps
i'm torn between w508 and w980 :p...someone please advise me...
which phone should i go for???
not much difference in the price between w508 and w980 at my place...difference is in the range RM20-RM80 (i'm from malaysia)
i like w508's design but i also like the clear bass function in w980(design.so-so)...

i noticed the mic is located just below the walkman key...the mic is covered by our face, doesn't that affect our voice clarity and loudness???
w980 users...do you face any in-call quality/clarity problem???
overall, how's the call quality/clarity/loudness...even if the mic isn't blocked by the face???

Guys i need your help. I am considering to buy w980. I read a review that i lack DSP which mean outcoming sound is less details. Based on your experience, Is it true?
When you're listening music and at the same time sms or email come, is music stay stabil or become laggy?
Please your feedback. I need expert feedback. Thanks.
Your country could simply have stopped shipping it in. Simple. Maybe it ain't being sold very well where you live.
I know here that the W902 is a real slow seller and most importers have stopped shipping that in.
Sony Ericsson is still making these phones, but their priority is now on phones like the Aino (that is, no Cyber-Shot and Walkman branding); they are focusing on 'all-in-ones' now so we won't be seeing Walkman or CyberShot branded SE phones from now on (actually, ever since the Yari was introduced)
Does anyone know why SE has stopped manufacturing this model? I was quite interested in this phone but now having 2nd thoughts since they've stopped manufacturing this model. Please reply if anyone knows any info. Thanks.
some users say the call quality (voice clarity) is awful and volume is really suck...some users say otherwise...which one is true???experienced users..can u please clarify??please...
