TRUE playlist creation is something you'll never get used to, but other than that, I found it easy to organise my media using the software. In my case I must say it had a 5-6 hours learning curveso it's not all that complicated, it could do with a few more features but let's keep in mind that it's only the first version. I'm sure SE will upgrade it. Cheers!

Watch this amazing video. W995 silver. It has 2 parts. Here is part one :-
I put a plastic cover/tape on the prints, the sony ericsson at the front, m2 at the side, and 8.1 mp at the back. To prevent it from fading.
@Gladiator Silver model is equally good. Even it is the display pic here. Please be satisfied , feel proud and love for your purchase.
is it really true that the sony ericsson logo at the back of the phone will peel off?

Camera is good but if you want to capture "precious" moments, use a (digital) camera! Period!
Media Go software SUCKS as is does NOT support Drag n Drop from PC desktop/Win Explorer into the program.
It'll import iTunes media/music but organizing them can and will be a hassle. Playlist creation is a PAIN!

The flash is "OK" but, remember, that the phone is REALLY meant as a Walkman, hence, W for walkman phone!
You can get decent pictures especially day/close-up shots but forget about night/long-distance shots!
Please Read the older posts as this subject has been brought up MANY times before!

Please read the older posts as this issue was brought up MANY times!
Apparently, SE got CHEAP and used stickers for the names and it DOES peel off with usage!
It does not affect the phone's usage just the appearance and makes one wonder why SE got so damn cheap!
Get a clear case to preserve the phone!
Joe, 16 Sep 2009Does anyone know how long is the license on the W995 GPS?If you use the GPS navigator on the w995, it's supposedly good for 3 months before you have to pay to continue using it!

You should be able to read Chinese characters in the media player! I can read it on mine as well as Japanese characters.
Yes, the flash isn't that bright and phone isn't that good for night shots!
Yes, the Facebook key is apparently on the Asian version especially if it comes from the Hong Kong market! It's made specifically for the Asian market. NONE of the European models reported have that feature (yet)!
There's only 2 versions: w995 (original) and w995a for the Americas!
Do the following to see if it helps:
1. Update the phone's firmware
2. Re-rip or re-import the songs.
- If you used iTunes to rip the songs, then it's NOT a problem. Just drag n drop the songs into the media drive.
- Good luck using Media Go! That software SUCKS! Never tried using it for rips just imported all iTunes music/media over it to try it!
- You may have better success in re-ripping your songs.
- Remember to set the bit rate, preferably 320k, the highest available! No lossless version is available!

The screen gets scratched very easily!!! The scratches are deep too! I suggest buying a scratch guard along with the phone immediately!! Just keeping the phone in my jeans pocket with no coins or keys or anything else has scratched my phone's screen a LOT!!
