Battery Life wise this phone's best, today i had 31% battery remaining, used Wi-Fi (on and off) for 5 hours
still had 5% left
Over all it is a great Phone with alot of specs, But the worst thing in this phone is it`s camera result....
The other worst thing is that it is not a symbian phone........
But still it is a good phone to have, it is slim stylish and sexy which makes it look good in your hand, especially infront of n95.......
According to my experiance, I would say it is the BEST offering from SonyEricsson.
Its Exterior has QualitY and believe me in new purchased models stickr does Not peel off. Its very Beautiful.
Its GPS and WiFi are Very Strong and work flawlessly.
All 3rd party applications including Google Maps can use WiFi.
It has decent 8.1 Mega pixel camera with Geo tagging, burst mode, Face detection, Smile Detection etc. Plus Strong LED which you can use as Torch and SOS Light. Video 30FPS and neat.
In case you do not want to use GPS but still Geotagging then it can Geotag your pics with cell id as well. You have an option to see your pics on in built Google Maps.
I would say that you can use most of the work without opening slider like calling ,3G video call etc.
In built User Guide is useful too.
Track ID is just a Magic. Try it.
Its BBC iPlayer compatible.
You can see full Song information on Main screen and its Divism theme changes when playing song.
As soon as you start the phone it catches the Network and battery life is good. Nice RDS Radio that can be handled with Walkman key.
Overall a Perfact Walkman Phone. Go and Buy it. This is my experiance.
10 out of 10
Just bought one on dell.com Had a G705 but 3g wasn't us compatible and like the fact this phone is made from high quality materials like brushed aluminum! I have had samsung, apple, lg, motorolla, and sony ericsson phones on the att network and the sony ericssons have been the best for call quality and reliablity, and signal strength in both edge and 3g areas. If your on att i highly recomend this phone! stay away from the c905a from att this is a very cheap phone although the w518a is the better deal if you want a flip from att but i wanted wifi so this model is the best choice. comes with 8gb card and usb cord. sony ericsson told me they offer these phones to att they just choose not to realise them b/c they are not the best phones for them to make money on. This phone will run on atts 7.2 3g update taking place now which gives you over 2mbps data speed! also you can tether with this phone and iphone you can't! apple is too controlling with there products and sony rocks! try this on att! you won't be disapointed. performs better than anything verizon can offer.
i love this phone it has a tiny screen that is almost impossible to read and i love it!it goes great with the almost non existent java based web browser the browser on this phone is so slow and laggy whats not to love?but the greatest feature is the total absence of an onboard cpu processor!i love it!finally sony ericsson has built a good quality cell phone that is just as dumb as i am.what am i thinking i almost forgot to brag alittle bit about the camera, the camera is just awesome on half zoom anything after that is just a blurry jumble of nothing even at a range of ten feet,but it`s marked 8.1mp on the phone and thats all that matters.CHEERS!!!
I have it directly after it's announced, it's really bad telephone, the camera pictures is the worst thing i hate in this mobile, no stablization, any slaw motion gives a damaged picture although i ckicked the stablizer to be on.
Having problem when charging the phone. No matter how long i charge it always remain at 99%, it just wont be fully charge. Anyone facing this problem as well?

Anonymous, 23 Dec 2009N86 is too Ugly. Talk time is less. Symbian is crap. Hangs most of the times.dude
the N86 is faster than the SE phones
i am not just talking it is from my own experience
i have been a SE fan till 2 weeks ago when i got my N86
i was afraid of lags but believe me it is not there at all it works like charm. the slider is solid and the music in the headsets is PERFECT
I'm planning to buy this W995, but have a few Qs. How is the camera picture quality? Does it have a lens cover (coz' i'm worried the lens might get scratched)? Is it equipped with Xenon Flash? Is the music volume loud enough and clear? Any music distortion when volume is high?
Yash, 19 Dec 2009Hi,I think as u think that 5800 is far away from SE phone,bad display. Now vikram suggested m... moredude sony ericcson all are non smartphones phones only a lady will buy that For w995 cosider nokia n86 much better in specks and comes in same price
This is the BEST phone. Its video quality is great.
GPS with built in torch can guide you even in the unknown dark places.
