Excellent phone with great functions - music uploads/transfers in minutes with SE's Media Manager. Perfect for music, ok for photos (no flash), stunning looking and great usability. I actually prefer this phone to my others (renoir, N95 8GB). Would recommend.

Anonymous, 10 Apr 2009I really dont get it, I've search the internet some says battery is good some says not. My ba... moreI have done lots of battery tests throughtout gsmarena forum..At moment using n85 as well as this w980,,n85 will do 30 hrs music and 6.5hrs video before going to emergency mode..Thats the best i have seen on a mobile BUT start with 3g and using bbci-player on wi-fi and it drops like mad perhaps flat in 3hrs 30 minutes..I reckon that all top mobile fone batterys over past 6 yrs are drained under high power use in 3hrs to 5 hrs so only video and music have increased using better tech,,even gaming cripples most fones after a few hrs playing..Do you want to know the worst fone battery,,well it goes to moto v3x,,i flattened that using 3 network watching tele on full brightness in 47 minutes..Even at normal use moto are pretty poor and s/e are usually best..The best fone battery goes to lgu8360 which gave 12.5hrs plus of full screen video playback i fell asleep at 12.5hrs mark..So battery has to be taken with small pinch of salt after my fave samsung d600 was dead after 3hrs 50 minutes of 90% volume mp3 playing yet has 7 hr talktime,,only real life reports are cricial..

My ba... moreI have been a lot heavier on this fone today and its down to 24% and i took it off charge at 8am this morning.I expect it to be flat later on so its lasted 16-17 hrs under fairly heavy usage..I reckon using 3g and increase the britness you could flatten it in 6 hrs..

I really dont get it, I've search the internet some says battery is good some says not. My battery sucks too, this is getting frustrating
If you go to the se/ apps on your handset you can get this and they work..
A light saber that swooshes round as you swing the fone for trekky people..
A spirit level called water level and it works accuratly with built in accelarometer,,
Their is a gps app to attach your w980 to and external gps module,,
Tracker app wich you enter you height calories etc it like an excerscise app that works via gps module,,
Vtap dont know what it does but its free,,
I have already got,,walkmate,,world 3d clock ,,accuweather,,converter,,music mate 5,,
Just install opera mini,,yahoo go !fring and shozu and your almost up to smartfone functions..
With 2g set 70% screen briteness i get 3 days of moderate use..
Camera gives reasonable snaps that are quite clear to me and video is smooth and not as pixellated as k850i..
Also in entertainment you have games track id and Location services were google maps is with settings for my favourites,,status info,,log and settings..The usual remote control and record sound is here too..and a demo tour video..
Another thing to mention is that at bottom of media player in settings is media update wich sorts and updates media and should be done when any media is added so it is easy recognised by w980..
This fone should put me on till w995 comes out..
I bought the set five months back.After the usage of two months, phone was getting switched off quite often.After reporting to dealer, initially software was redownloaded,still problem remained same.Later on the set was replaced.After the usage of two months again new set also getting switched off quite often.Is is a common problem in this model?
This is a great handset, has got very good battery life, have been using for the last three days wothout any xtra charge. superb music!!
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009its not realy walkman my w910 is realy beter than this why???
Excellent phone but battery is too weak. It barely last 2 days of moderate use (10 sms, 1 min call, no music/game) unlike the strong battery life stated in the review.
oop!! sorry, that was wrong typing. i'd say
Base on my exp. i prefer w980 rather than ipod/iphone, clearer especially bass. ahh!! just set the EQ correctly! WOW i have to say, the sound quality is NOT really worse than SONY Walkan, + stereo widening works just brillian => produce like surround sound. however, i hate there is only one custom EQ setting unlike NOKIA, still poor SE!
