I have the phone..
I have a w810i aswell.. and I think that the audio output is better in that one actually
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2008Can sum1 plz tell me if this is as slow as the w960? i hope it's not...plz let me know. the re... moreW980 is a fast handset. It is deffinatley faster than the W960 b/c that runs on Symbian phones like all Nokia's which is why they are sooooooo slow now!!
Even fast while playing music if you need to go through your menu system :-)
Hope this helps. :-) PS WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE, better then iphone/N95/N96
i was wondering.. if i can have the screen with the date and time everytime i close the phone? instead of pressing the button on the side.
because right now when i close the phone, the external screen goes to the music player straight away.

i saw the brown and red on the UK sony ericsson website =]
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008transparent part will change colour or not?yes it does =]
its either white or orange.
white for normal and radio.
orange for walkman, and it flashes with the music rhythm, but ifu find it annoying, u can disable it =]
It is not as slow as w960. W960 has a different operating system than w980. W980 is reliably fast. About the battery, it stays with me about 3days of moderate to heavy use (music, texting, calls).
Hey, i was thinking of getting this phone.
The thing is i haven't seen it in any shop, so i would have to get it online. Therefor, i need to know: is the keyboard small?(i'm a big guy with big hands :D) is the battery good? is it worth it? i mean all i like is the FM transmitter.
I would be choosing between SW W980 and Nokia 6500 slide, and i haven't made up my mind.
Any help is welcome. :)
peeps, i would lyk to ask is this fone or T700 better? pls give me some comments. i'm getting a new fone in a day or 2. i dun wish the fone i get to disppoint me. tyvm ;D

Please tell me that this is not as slow as the W960...Please tell me that it's faster. If it's that slow, it's really pathetic...
Yes, the battery life sucks. I bought a spare battery off of Ebay for only $5 and keep it as a spare in my car in case of emergency.
My only complaint of the W980 is the 'molasses' slow interface and the most IMPORTANT button on the phone, the CALL button, is extremely small. Even though I have small fingers - I still have troble presing this tiny button
this is my third walkman phone and I love it apart from the battery needing to be charged every day, even though I hadnt even loaded any music onto it! Have sent it back as o2 said this is a common complaint - excellent phone in every other way tho xx
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I would say X1. Richest of all three in functionality and has style. W980 pure music, bad camera but nice and light. C905, best camera but quite bulky. I chose W980 because it's very light and has enough functionality to serve my purposes: business and pleasure.
DaNy, 12 Oct 2008I can tell urll that the 960i is better than this phone...960i has more funtions than the 980 ... moreWrong, I've already had w960i its so annoying i gave up on it like 3 weeks after i bought it, its also gaint..
