It's quite a good phone, I just bought one yesterday on a affordable price (about $197usd)
If you are a music lover, this one will fits your need to a decent clam phone.
The main LCD and keypad has a glossy finish, so its quite fragile and prone to hairline scratches.
The OS is having a hiccup, sometimes, but never bothers me at all.
Camera is mediocre - since it is a music phone.
All in all, a great music phone and a decent phone in one.

andleeb, 29 Jun 2009what abt its video results???Very good! I've just realised that the mobile has a sensor and the brightness of the screen display of the mobile depends on how much light the atmoshere has.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2009yes it can but make sure tht those all phones hv 240*320 pixels otherwise they wont look go... moreI would apreciate your help again,i bought the phone w980 yesterday but despite full charging for 10 hours the screen displays the WHITE colour of the theme page as rather pale not porcelain white as it should be,(at all levels of brightness).Many thanks.
This is a beautiful phone, i will soon be the proud owner of one......but if anybody from sony ericsson is reading this, i would greatly appreciate a reply.......all i really want in my life is a FLIP WALKMAN PHONE WITH A CAMERA WITH AUTO FOCUS AND FLASH, is that too much to ask for? This phone would have been perfect if the camera had these specs. oh and if the camera was placed right above the external display....thanks for reading, please reply sony ericsson people.
maria, 26 Jun 2009I'm so thankful! I heard that the battery life of W980 to be rather poor. Also, like far too many SE phones these days, the W980 is subject to software glitches including random freezing and shutting down. Is this true?
