billy bob, 04 Sep 2009Is there anyway to make it so the buttons don't glow when ur in Walkman mode? It kind of looks... moreNope.
The glowing buttons while in Media player mode is one of the features of the phone.
If you don't like, then consider any phone!
get the n86, better all round package and a lot more powerful
it also scored better in the audio tests
Is there anyway to make it so the buttons don't glow when ur in Walkman mode? It kind of looks girly.
..., 04 Sep 2009Hi, I think there is no problem with ur phone its the network signal that got the problem beca... moreI'm not sure because I used to own a W760 and the network signal was much better on that one...GPS could also get a lock within 4 metres, my W995 can only do 10m
i bought this cell fone yesterday bt dint get time to write abt it coz i was very much bizi with this fone ...the title of w995 is 'say gud bye to boredom' n its damn appropriate...it has too many features .. my parents told me not to spend to much money on a phone bt i told them its a all rounder fone ...n when my dad saw its looks ...its features ..its worthness..he was dumbstruck....its has such a gud mechanism of slide show of pics which lets u too enter the pic in such a way that u enjoy it ...
i hav heard ppl sayin that its camera is not that gudd...bt wot eva i hav experienced is ...the camera quality is amazing in day light ..its truely comes out to be 8 mega pixel..bt thanks to led flash at night it helps u to take gud videos ... bt it wont be possible with xenon flash..the time u ll purchase the fone u ll experience that its flash is no less than xenon flash..
applications are very nice...it haslike sound sensor , voice transfor ..n many more ..
it has loads of games which can keep u bizi ol day ...that too with montion sensing ...
its gps ,n wifi are very responsive ...with in a flick on an eyes u can see youtube videos ...that too with 1 time buffering ...u ll get preloaded movies ...n yeah the screen quality is far more better than nokia n 86 ....w995 screen is so bright ...bt nokia is also nt bad bt i dunno with such a gud screen technology why nokia's screen is so DULL...
WHEN u start walkman whole fone becomes orange ...buttons glow like so sweet to see...when u ll see the fone u ll feel proud that yes its worth...
n with 8 gb card do whateva u want to ...store anything ..i mean u ll nt regret buying this fone ...

My SAMSUNG i7110 reviews in 1 month use;
The largest screen of 2.6"(non-touchscreen) available in a candy bar design.
Superior display quality(AMOLED sreen).
Brush metal material smartphone
12.9mm thk is good enough with this large screen display.
Sleek design, excellent rating in gsmarena.
Fully equipped candy bar phone, name it what features you want.
Digital Natural Sound Engine. Loud, 2 loudspeakers(front and back)
Good camera and can take good videos
Good battery (4 days)
The best thing is in it's price, 558 singapore dollars only(385 USD)
no 3.5mm jack on the phone itself(in headset only)
Best in indoor use only or night time, not good with sunlight.
Sensitive dedicated camera key.
Needs time to navigate menu fast, D-pad and nearby keys are not so friendly.
I can't use all the features, I take time more on computers.
Lastly, NOT SONY ERICSSON phone.
Overall, I still like my Samsung experience. The price is superb with all these features.
COuld you please tell me what is a better buy N86 8MP or the W995 ?

I've owned two W995s. They are great phones BUT suffer serious network signal issues. Constantly changing between 3G and 2G makes internet browsing very frustrating when travelling, with the internet icon grey for far too long. GPS signal can't get a very accurate lock. It is a shame because the screen, speakers and camera are all really good.
panos, 31 Aug 2009does it have better sound than a nokia n86?yes much better than tht!!!!!!!!!
Jagan, 02 Sep 2009hey guys. i got this mobile a week back. earlier i had w950i. i was happy with it. before i ga... moreyou shoud have saved the contacts in to your sim card then just simply put it in your w995.
W950 is a symbian and w995 is a java phone. Their contacts file format is different. Try to sync w950 using the old SE pc suite for smartphones to your ms outlook. Then use the new pc suite of SE, choose the folder outlook for syncing, choose advance options, overwrite data on phone.
