Sarmad, 18 Aug 2009Hi friends
I just upgraded my phone to the latest firmware RIFA035. The obvious changes are a... moreCustom fixed Facebook app is a standard on the Asian w995 version which uses the front left key on phone!
Unfortunately, it's permanent and can NOT be removed or replaced by another app =;(
who is using this phone to make skype calls ? please tell me where to get the needed software to make internet call with the W995. Thanks a lot
Sarmad, thanks for your reply!
Rich101, does your w995 come with noise cancellation headphone as standard? thanks in advance.
i come from the w810. the w995 is more advanced than the w810. newer features and updates to the basic features of the w810. the sound from the speakers...well the w810 was a touch more bassy and little bit more detail and clarity , but the w995 is clear and has a fuller rounder sound. if the speakers had a little more bass it would be excellent. the phone so far is a joy to use. the w810 is more rugged, the w995 is more fancy and delicate, but it is made well, its just the design is more complex with the slider and all...more openings, which is why i think the w810 is more ready for rougher use. w995 is a quite expensive this is why i feel also that the w810 i could toss around more, but the w995 i must treat better.
have been using this for a couple of weeks, the music quality is amazing, especially if you use it with SE's noise cancelling headphones, makes my daily tube journey... bearable! the silver colour also looks really cool!
i have the silver one and i've noticed that the printed name sony ericsson infront and also the 8.1 print at the back has been erased. I mean whenever i scratch it, it'll be deleted. Why is it like that? Do i have to change the case of my phone or it can't be fixed anymore? thanks!!
anon, 19 Aug 2009SARMAD, can you please explain what you mean by "seeing some of your notes on the home screen... moreYes there is google maps (newer version) on board as well. Anon I mean the notes and tasks application you have in your organizer, can be displayed on home screen. Facebook also does have this option. Graham is right...Its amazing application....Well done SE
I have read some opinions regarding the camera performance
some are saying that camera is awesome and other says that it s decent for day and near shots only.
another opinion is saying that camera is very good if you use advanced options that not many people are arware of?
which opinion of those is near to the truth

I wish this w995 can view powerpoint, word and text files!!!

I just upgraded my phone to the latest firmware RIFA035. The obvious changes are addition of a custom made Facebook application, slightly improved camera results and possibility of seeing some of ur notes and other applications on the home screen.
Please let me know if I have missed anything as a result of this upgrade.
Jack, 23 Apr 2009well guys i checked the review of 5130XM and what this guy says is true...:( I never thought ... moreyou're right, nokia XM will become a music boom in the near future with nokia 5130XM as the source point. Already in competiton with apple ipods. Yet SE fans will soon watch out to compare the real meaning of audio quality. Frequency response does matters. Include samsung phones in the line:)
