the model can be almost same as some other SE models, but the build quality is very good. The battery life is great, I come for N96,and think we talk about 300% better battery life. The camera is far away from bad, the mobile is very very fast and easy in use. I have it two weeks now and could not find any problem, or crash or whatever. Internet connection is fast. GPSfix is within 1 min. sound quality by the internal speakers is the best ever in a mobile. Expensive ? everything is expensive, but at least this is expensive for quality.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2009is there somewhere where you can hang a strap or cell phone accessory on this phone? i loo... moreThere's no straphole with this model...just use the kickstand to put your strap if u really want to hang it around your neck...
god this phone model is way too prizy in my guess - the 8mp cam is ok but way too older design , and the s.e. firmware looks like the same like even 3 to 4 years before and before that even its way too older looking and almost same options .
shiv, 29 Jul 2009amyone tell me in night camera in led flash is good is come true plc Some people already posted this in older posts...
Camera is decent for day shots or close-up shots but not that good for night shots or long-distance shots!
Camera is essentially same as C905 but SE somehow "downgraded" the quality in w995, probably so as not to compete it directly against the C905.
It is a Walkman phone so don't expect camera to be that of Cybershot quality!
plz anyone tell me...........how to record the sound while i am talking..... plz give me sum ideas....thz:-*
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2009The stickers of SE's name on front does peel because SE "cheapened" the manufacturing process ... moreYes it is already a known issue that the stickers from the W995 peels off. Apart from that, this has got to be SE's best offering to date in terms of functionality and reliabilty. No major problems like crashing, phone not turning on etc has been reported yet. But still, overpriced this phone is. All SE Phones in one way or another are overpriced.

I have it right here and checked it. As for any other phone, I never paid any attention to it.
Your reasoning is partly right. If I had to place it, I'd make it on the side where the slider comes out, then I wouldn't run the risk of opening it accidentally (rather closing than opening, actually). But you do have a point in the possibility of opening unintended while on a strap....

Being a slider phone, it does make sense!
Why put the phone on a strap then have phone hanging around neck when the phone will slide open?
Does any slider phone have an eyelet for a cellphone strap? Haven't seen one yet but maybe others have?

Many owners have cited this matter in past posts!
Now the Camera info on the back is peeling off also!
Wow! No wonder Sony Ericsson is NOT doing so well financially as they cheapen their manufacturing process by nickel-and-diming certain things while still charging a premium price on their phones!

i looked through the pictures and i can't seem to find a small hole like they have on most sony ericsson phones

this phone is amazing well worth the wait just wish it looked different to all the other sonys because they all look the same.
The "8.1 megapixel" printed on d metal cover in the back of my black w995 faded away jus after 2 weeks of use. Does this mean my handset isnt an original one or SE simply dont wanna boost tat this is a 8.1mp mob :)) Coz d pic quality isnt brilliant; rest of the features, however, are smooth.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970you can't talk like that !! i am not a fan of any factory. i see the differences and make my mind to pick a phone I like ! each company satisfies some wishes of a type of costumers ! Apple somehow, Sony, Nokia, even Samsung !! it's there opinion.
I know Sony has a good range of cellphones, Nokia has too, and also Apple !!
in my opinion, I rather Sony, Nokia and Apple !!
I'm waiting for Nokia E55, then I choose one of these:
iPhone 3G S, Nokia E55, Sony W995 !!
lets be honest, without fanaticism, help me to choose one ;)
