It should be, I guess, cos W960 is symbian OS and W980 not. Also, is it slower than W890i or faster or same cos I am considering buying a W890i too for its light weight and rich functionality. Hope someone can answer these question thoroughly.
i have to use headphones as antena for mine. it's very light and nice fit in pocket. with headphones sounds good. it is slow has some bugs or lag. nice phone
sars, 03 Aug 2008i just bought this phone now i think its awesome but i feel that its abit slow let me try ... morehere you go dude.how is music quality through speakers many says its bit tinny n how is qaulity when compares to nokia,samsung n apple.thanks in advance.
Does anyone actually have this phone who can advise me if the phone has a built in antena or not, meaning i can play radio without using headphones. Lots of people say its does have this feature and others say sony cancelled it
excelent mobile , there is a lite on the left side , when it should be blinking ? in the ( g900 ) it blink when there is a missid call or a new message , but with my w980 it want blink .
cool~when wil it b available in m'sia? cant wait to hv 1...i've been waiting 4 a flip fon from SE 4 sooO long since i got my k810i... =)
Does it feel a little heavy or thick?
Is music better than in w910? I mean through headphones provided
i just bought this phone now
i think its awesome but i feel that its abit slow
let me try it on more guys and i give u more details later
if u have any question or any thing u want me to try it on this phone, go ahead...
iam very confused of which for is better is that the w902 or this w980 because its music specs are the same but when it comes tocamera func. this phone is really stupid! and upon choosing bet the 2 i found out that it is very difficult
everything on this phone is excellent except for its camera, the phones should must have a flas or some sort of autofocus and some other cybershot imaging tools for it to become the most and superior multimedia phone and the phones lacks wifi!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2008So this phone really has the built in radio antenna, meaning you don't have to plug in the ear... moreyes this has FM transmitter and no need to plug the headphone, you can listen to FM radio without that and also operate all music related functions from the touch sensitive keys on the clam. also it has 3.2 MP camera and 8GB memory.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2008So this phone really has the built in radio antenna, meaning you don't have to plug in the ear... moreWhen first announced, the Sony Ericsson W980 was also expected to have another cool radio feature. Back there in Barcelona, the prototypes used to have a built-in antenna that allowed listening to music without plugging in a pair of headphones.
In the end, this feature was ditched, much to our disappointment.
See page 5 on the review =(
i got my w980 finally! its a great phone. perfect size, not that bulky. great design specially when flip closed, it looks very hot. sound quality are really great, big improvement compared to previous walkman phones. i recommend this to all music lovers!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2008good points about this phone
1) touch sensitive keys perfect for music

3) F... moreSo this phone really has the built in radio antenna, meaning you don't have to plug in the earphones to listen ot the radio - awesome? If this is really true then I will certainly consider buying this phone now. Please, all those who have this phone, will you confirm this for me, i.e., that the retail version has a built-in antenna, and that there's no need to lug in the headphones to listen to the radio?
2nd good feature: FM transmitter - worthwhile consideration to buy this phone too , I guess.
Thank you :)
Qns abt the external screen:
When theres incoming call, does the screen shows the caller's name and no or just the no?
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2008i wana know if w980i or C902 is better....i realy want a flap phone but then if 980i is 2 big ... morethe w980 is not big at all, but c902 is slimmer,
besides, flap is always better than candybar phones when it comes to looks.
and it depends.. u like music? or u like takin excellent shots?
i wana know if w980i or C902 is better....i realy want a flap phone but then if 980i is 2 big nd C902 is beter then i wud compromise on the flap...im realy confusd...nd i wana c both the piececs but they are not available in mumbai as yet...
good points about this phone
1) touch sensitive keys perfect for music
2) 8GB memory
3) FM transmitter and the radio can works without the headphone (since in most of the phones headphone works as radio antenna)
4) the bottoom part of the phone where 'W' is written for walkan has dancing lights which dances on the beats o music.
these are only some of the good points, u really need to use this phone to feel it.
Kevin Deegan, 31 Jul 2008No offence meant but have you ever seen a v640 it looks nothing like the w980i its not even a ... moreI've got an even better idea - why don't you actually read the item you're criticising. My comment was a reply to somebody else who had been talking about the W902. I was NOT comparing the W980 to the V640, but the W902 which, from the front, does look kinda similar to the V640. If you're gonna pick holes in people's comments, at least read them properly...
