Using phone and media player should last ~3-4 days but you'll need to cycle battery and shut OFF everything else!
You use internet so most likely you use 3G/wifi which sucks up battery life! Some people report ~1-2 days, if not shorter, before recharging!
yajb, 19 Oct 2009What is the "G" stands for on the upper part of signal indicator, and sometimes it shows "E"? ... morePlease READ the Older posts... you're Q has been asked before!
G as in 3G
E as in Edge
It'll find the better best signal depending in the area you live in!
daisy (",) xx, 20 Oct 2009hi , i have this phone a week and i never had problems with sony ericsson before can some one ... moreJust wait a little longer, about 3 weeks or so :D Mine also had crappy battery life in the first week. Now it lasts between 4-5 days with excessive calls and texts each day, and moderate use of its apps. The applications are the major battery drainers in the first few weeks especially internet related ones.
rhaine from philippi, 20 Oct 2009im planning to buy a new phone from SE coz i already have the K800i which works perfectly for ... moreIf ur used to the picture quality of the k800 u'll probably be disappointed by the w995's cam. If u want to stay along the cybershot line I recommend the c905, which has an amazing snapper, I was also a cybershot addict and was got a little disappointed by the w995 in this area. On the other han this handset has just about everything u could possibly ask for in a phone, media playing on it is just beyond what a cybershot could ever do an it's a lot more stylish than anycybershot will ever be. plus I've had mine 4 almost 3 months now and I can't complain about a loose slider (I've opened mine 402 times) or anything peeling off (everything on my handset is engraved). Hope that helps u take a decision.
hi , i have this phone a week and i never had problems with sony ericsson before can some one tell me how long the battery life is on theres because mine is only lasting about 12hrs or less, i know i use the facebook and msn but surly it should last a bit longer that that , please can someone get back to me ?
I have this phone and I am deeply in love with it. I have manually set the equalizer and the sound is just out of the world.
w995 mclovin, 19 Oct 2009If you want a phone to replace everything, I'm pretty sure Nokia N86 would be a better bet. Th... moreThanx so much Mclovin... the reason im being so careful b4 making a decision of whether to go for either the W995 or the Nokia N86 is that the last phone i got was the HTC TyTn II (aka the HTC Kaiser) read the review of that phone and heard rave reviews about windows mobile...but i was extremely disappointed...not only with the consistent crashing but also with the abysmal battery life amongst other problems.
I used to be a Nokia fan-boy but i dont mind a change ...but i wanna make sure i dont mes up again. Honestly if the W995 had the Symbian 60 OS (without the crashing n bugs) n all its features i'd go for that hands down..oh well..guess we cant always get wot we want..
but lookin to hear more from the phone's users about the advantages and the disadvantags of this phone (and the Nokia N86 before i buy one of the 2)
some people are confused to choose between w995 and aino
if you dont care about semi touch screen and about playstation 3 compatibility then go for w995 which is cheaper now
im planning to buy a new phone from SE coz i already have the K800i which works perfectly for me specially the camera.. so right now i just want to know more about you guys who already have the SE W995.. please help me out.. thanks guys.. ( '-' )

I am not a liar you are lucky with yours doenst mean everyone who isnt is... moreloll I actually meant all those posters claiming to have over two continuously fail sliders, come on, how likely is that. Whoever you're returning to probably just twisted some screws and handed it right back to you.
Besides, there's only a few people with comments on bad sliders, think of the hundreds or thousands of other consumers who don't post because they're completely fine with their sliders. I'm pretty sure I wasn't just lucky.
sid, 19 Oct 2009err...that was a quikc reply lion..thanx
but what kind of features are u talking about. i n... moreIf you want a phone to replace everything, I'm pretty sure Nokia N86 would be a better bet. The camera along with its wide angle lens is definitely better. The camera on the w995 I have to say is pretty good, but you have to keep your hand completely still, image stabilization is pretty bad on it. Plus, it's based on a smartphone platform, so you can't go wrong with it. The only thing that the w995 has over the n86 would probably be the music player, and the n86 is still able to do that decently.
Basically, if you need a phone as a replacement for the electronics you use now, you'd most likely want a Nokia. I got the w995 pretty much for style and customization, I was getting tired of the staleness of the S60 interface.
