pretty good look.
stylish with its piano black color
sturdy and durable.
cool music player, its like an ipod!
tons of storage capacity(8gb)
not complicated type of phone
cool light feature. turns orange then white
preview sms on the small outside screen
poor cam and vid
no zoom (only available for vga)
no flash...pics are always dark
cam lens at situated at left side. My thumb tends to cover the lens
it gets hot frequently
you cant answer a call unless youll flip it open or use a headset
motion/tilt detector is not that fast
cant post a pic on the small outside screen
OVERALL RATING 5.
ITS JUST A REGULAR PHONE. NOTHING SPECIAL.
My previous phone (N95) is alot better.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I would say buy the W902 cos it basically has the same features of W980 except W902 has 5MP camera while the W980 has 3.2MP camera. N it depends which one you like, flip phones or a normal phone.
Oh, and the phone's accelerometer's slow so not a good idea to watch videos because it gets behind like when your watching a movie on it, and the guys speaking but no words are being said, instead the intro or something is playing. Not recommended for watching videos.
This phone's pretty good, quite innovative actually, the music quality's quite good i suppose, but the bad thing bout it is that theres no Wi-Fi and the camera cant even zoom and the quality has to be VGA so that it can zoom, how stupid is that, even my previous W200 can zoom at least with its maximum pixels on.
after a few months of using this phone,it starts wobling at the center because its fold up feature is not good.even if the phone is folded,you can see that its not centered anymore.
no one answered my question but sonyeircsson service call center ,they r awsome they told me to update and it worked perfectly
in case u still wondering yes i still have the FM transmeter
Guys,.... I love this phone so much.. the quality of sound is excellent.... picture and video.. excellent too. the only thing need this mobile is wifi connection.. but the rest is absolutely excellent. I've been using this mobile since 2008 and I never think to replace it.
those who have problem with this mobile, to what I think is.. they dont know how to use it properly...
yahya, 27 Aug 2009 Hello: I recently bought a W980-(like six days ago)-& I love the cell but it has some proble... moreDid you check if you still have the fm transmitter fuction in your cellphone after you updated the software....
does it have a flash on it.
and are there any drawbacks on this thing.
it gets hot a lot. playing with the phone makes it hot, especially if i connect it to the computer it gets hot like REAL HOT.. is that ok?
and the battery drops quite fast..
i dont know if it's just me or no.
need opinion here, thx :)
i have it...
it's so handsome and makes u different from others...
but the media center not worked good. it's to slowly...
also the accelerometer only works on media center...
and FM Transmitter doesn't work in IRAN...
but other advantages is so great and useful... especially playing music...
it a nice mobile...it never hngs ....so easy to operate..but if flash is possible in its camera then it will b great..

I recently bought a W980-(like six days ago)-& I love the cell but it has some problems
so it would be great if I can get help through them by you:
1st : the phone does some sort of restart while i'm listening to music
is that normal?
2cd : every time I change the screensaver I have to turn the phone
off & on so it applies ,that didn't happen at all with my old k800i.WHY?
3rd : It kinda freezes if I go fast through the media ,is that normal?
Some friends said that I should update the software and i tried but the
update service software told that I already have the latest version.
I'm waiting for your replay please help me.
THANK YOU already for your patience and help.
