I've had this phone for almost a month now and I have to say I totally love it. I'm a SE addict for sure but that doesn't stop me from seing the minuses in their phones. so here goes:
1.Nice design/ almost all keys are ergonomic and quite easy to use
2.Big enough screen (could've been bigger though)
3.Great apps- The Hikaru's preinstalled apps give u easy access to most everything a teenager needs
4.Awesome audio - The speakers are absolutely stunning, by far the best music player out there
5.The kickstand is a feature u easily get addicted to
6.Great build qulity - nothing on the phone feels cheap
7.Awesome Feature to price ratio, I got mine for 370 euros and its totally worth it.
8.The 8.1 MP cam is more then sufficient for a phone cam
9.Media Go is a very intuitive, easy-to-use transfer/converter program and is included in the package
1.Volume/zoom keys are impossible to use. U will find urself turnin the walkman on for quite a while, until u get used to them. Good thing is u can use the accelerometer instead of the vol keys to modify the volume.
2.Image stabilizer on the cam is crap. U have to be really still when taking photos.
3.Same old SE menu interface can become boring quite quickly.
All in all, I highly recommend the W995 to anyone who plans to buy one. Don't even stop to think about it, just go out and buy it.

I think pictures of high speed objects are blur. Please use image stblizer. This is useful even in shaky hands. Post you query in ESATO forum which is exclusively for Sony Ericsson. Also you can join Orkut community.
To save money during the use of GPS; you can download Free maps from Wayfinder Website.

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2009Don't swap w995 for Sammy Jet. My brother has it and he wants me to swap his Jet with my W995.... moreYou are right,when you use outside under Sun light, you see the screen, you will know the different.
240x320 is not bad but it's far from having the details of a 480x800, and as he said if you are a SE addict for years you will get bored from the same menu again and again.
The jet has many widgets and other to come to make the phone fun,it has nothing to do anymore with the boring old Sammy phones like U600
