Orton, 24 Oct 2009Very disappointed. I was abt 2 buy dis phone. Bt a lot of people complained abt loose sliders.I think you shouldn't believe the nutter Fanboys on this website.
I currently own a W995 and i've had it since August only 3 Months and so far the Slider is as perfect as the day i got it, Perfectly TIGHT, you can hear the bang when it closes as the slider is that tight!
I had a N95 8GB before the W995 and N95 has a much worse slider then W995, the N95 has such a loose slider it used to slide in my pocket and then start playing music thanks to the rubbish buttons on the N95.
W995's slider is honestly just PERFECT
so go and buy it and you won't regret!
not happy with the phone what so ever!! o2 had to give me the phone twice because broke with the same problem! had to send it back the 3rd time to get fixed, im still waitinf on getting it back!
all what happened was play the video on phone, then it crashes, then cant charge all it said "NOT A SONY BATTERY" not net work etc etc
Very disappointed. I was abt 2 buy dis phone. Bt a lot of people complained abt loose sliders.

Anonymous, 23 Oct 2009very good phone missing OSSE's UI is good enough, it does what N95 does but with no drawbacks of the Symbian equivalents

W995, a Nutshell Review
My previous was w960 and my uncle has n86, Iíve checked n95 an 5800 closely. So, through the review sometimes I compare my Hikaru with them.
Design: it has a decent shape. Very pocket friendly, itís not unique or eye catching, so if you are a person who wants to show off, itís not a good choice. Itís not very robust; you should handle it with a little care. Overall, design is good.........7.5 out of 10
Music: as is obvious (it's a W series) the loudness is good and sound quality and intensity is great, beats any device. Concerning sound quality, no Nokia can even get close to it. About video playback, well, not spectacular, and its screen is 2.6, so it's not good for watching movies. But, who watches movies even in 3.5 screens?! This video thing is only a feature for bragging, not using. Big screen eats battery too. In variety of formats that the media covers in w995, just like in w960,Nokia music phones in the challenge are a winner. You can solve the problem by glass player and media player intended for java. 9 out of 10
Screen: though 256, has a high resolution, you cannot identify it when it's beside a 16million color screen. 8 of of 10
Hanging: it never hangs, even when the memory is full. But it has about 2minute lagging, when you take out and put in the memory, or when you turn it on. But it's only that first two minutes.w960 hangs but not as much as new Nokias like n86 or 5800.
Battery: simply...excellent.4days of moderate use. About 20 hours of nonstop listening. Nokia, one day, 2day-8hours playing... no chance before Hikaru. 10 out of 10
Operating system, interface: itís a top notch, you may think that because it's not windows or symbian it's a loser, but it's exactly the reverse. It supports multitasking very smoothly. And except "answering machineĒ, every program that is for symbian-you can find java version of it in the net. 8.5 out of 10
camera: if taking pictures or recording is important for you, donít even think about Hikaru, even 5 mega pixel camera of n95 is far better than this 8mega pixel W series phone. Pictures and videos in daylight are acceptable. In low light and night, what you get is a total crap; you can't even guess what's going on in the picture. 5 out 10
Conclusion: it's a good phone, you won't be sorry for buying it. But I believe that the ultimate walkman should be attired with touch screen. Not in the way of w960 or 5800 they are good phones too, but in the way of Apple.
