hey w995 users.
do u guys experience the "sony ericsson" wordings peel off the front panel? And the "8.1MPs" at the back cover also peels off... :(
Black Bird, 16 Oct 2009My sentence was incomplete. I'm thinking of buying this phone.
I wanted to ask, IS THE SOUND ... moreRemember that the w995 is PRIMARILY a phone NOT a media player, which is the secondary function!
If you want a Sony PMP, than buy the mp3 player itself as it costs much less!

1. Shut OFF 3G when not needed
2. Shut OFF wifi when not needed
3. Reduce screen brightness ~50-60%
4. Shut OFF all other apps running in background
5. Update phone's firmware!
6. Cycle the battery a fews times esp. in the beginning
7. READ the older posts as your Q has been asked several times in the past!
The phone should get ~3-4 days without recharging if using only the phone and media player!
Black Bird, 16 Oct 2009Is the sound quality of W995 better than ipod nano (4G)????Yes, w995 media player does have better SQ than iPod (nano).
About any other PMP is better than the iPod since most use better chipsets for music, Sony is one of them.
Thanks for replies about dimming screen. it isnt when choosing the word as i know it does grey out then it just seems to dim overall when typing. your light sensor explanation does make sense and i have reduced the overall brightness as suggested.
thanks for advice everyone.

Here are some suggestions/tips that you have to take into consideration to save battery life:
1. Don't use 3g when it's not needed;
2. 50% is enough for brightness. No need to use 100%.
3. Animated wallpaper also decreases battery life. Non-animated wallpaper is highly recommended; and
4. NEVER drain your battery. There's no use of draining it for this only affects the battery life.

My sentence was incomplete. I'm thinking of buying this phone.
I wanted to ask, IS THE SOUND QUALITY OF W995 GOOD ENOUGH TO REPLACE MY IPOD NANO (4G)????
I need ur suggestions guys.
Hi guys!! For those of you who have used W995, I have a question to ask........
I'm a music lover, and I have iPod nano 8GB (4G). It has good sound quality but it needs PC for charging, moreover it doesn't work without iTunes>>>>annoying
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2009love the phone but there is one thing that bothers me, the screen is bright then dims as i am ... moreI believe the screen of the W995 has a sensor that adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on the environment. In dark places, it will be brighter and vice versa. Sometimes when you text, the phone will move which causes different levels of light in its surroundings.
