Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009Sony Ericsson - PLEEEEASE! How dare they price this over a Nokia N86 - a FAAAAAAR better phon... morethis phone is 400 HK $ cheaper as the N86. the N86 is indeed a smartphone but is slow in use and not all people need smartphones. This is a beautiful fast mobile with an fantastic music player and good camera.The N86 is a good mobile too but telling it is far better than the w995 is maybe a little too much not proofed advertisement
damn sony they never come up with a different looking phone.the only thing good about it is the camera.good lens and zoom.
damn sony could they ever come up with a different looking phone.the only thing good about the phone is the camera.good lens and zoom
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009Terribly overpriced. Nokia N85 has only 5MP but its a smartphone, has fm transmitter, voip sof... morelet they use a sound chip ..... sony will beat dust out of them even wihtout any sound chip!!!!! :)
An earlier post asked about card size,,well i am using 16gb card straight off from day one and A200 platform supports cards up to 32GB .
Altho this sounds like i am contradicting myself i am getting a smartfone later on in year cause i swap fones all the time,,but,,what i did was sit down and mark down what i really use on a fone and this did all i really need..The smarfone idea is cause you can mess about with it till your hearts content and tweak and twiddle things..I am getting xperia x2 up to now but the fone market changes everyday so who knows..
shashank, 26 Jul 2009can anyone please tell me , what video formats does it support please please........Just mpeg4 and 3gp and 3ggp ,,the movies it plays are drm and only work on w995..Ive tried them on innov8 k770i and so on and it says you have to contact manufacture and so on..The dowloaded films are qvga and aac codec,,a 1hr 46 minute film takes up 240MB and in 3gp format but because of this format the bitrate is higher..
As to pricing i put earlier that the speaker in box is 30GBP and 8gb memory card 25GBP plus 60 films to download is not bad and it will go down in price..
The battery,,sonics,,stylishness,,smooth video recording,,extra walkman controls,,kickstand etc attracted me to this fone and at least its got stopwatch/timer and torch straight out of box..Everybodys nitpicking too much these days instead of enjoying their mobiles..This is not going to read out your texts or edit files but how much do you really do things like this on a mobile..
Omg i will be buying this phone soon i love its the price that gets to me though!!! no doubt that i will get it
Terribly overpriced. Nokia N85 has only 5MP but its a smartphone, has fm transmitter, voip software, better sound chip, TV Out.

Sony Ericsson - PLEEEEASE! How dare they price this over a Nokia N86 - a FAAAAAAR better phone, and then expect us to buy it. Thats an insult to the customer's intelligence as far as i'm concerned.
is there anyone selling this fone??
wanting 2 buy..
hwo much will it cost if you buy it from sony??
can anyone please tell me , what video formats does it support please please........
HAAAAYYY,, anyway it is still the BEST cellphone that suits adventurous like me i think.... ROCK ON !!! :-)
1.) Is it possible to record continues video up to the limit of its 8GB memory card?
2.) How long will its "flex cable" last. 1 year? 2 years? how long. is the replacement of it covered by warranty?
3.) Why they did not put here the camera of "SATIO" to make it perfect.
Hi to all, i am planning to buy this unit (W995) right after i received my salary on Aug. 15 2009. but i dont know if i will buy it here in Qatar then if I will bring this to Philippines, is there no problem in signal?
keenan, 25 Jul 2009yes the sound is awesome. but what about the camera? no one is talking about the camera. cause... moreIt's a Walkman phone so media player would be good.
Unfortunately, camera is decent but not up to Cybershot quality.
Only good for day/short-distance shots but NOT night/long-distance shots!
Use a regular camera if you want to capture precious moments. Otherwise, camera is really meant for quick shots!
Weird how SE somehow "bastardized" the camera when many reviewers report that the w995 camera was actually taken from the Cybershot camera. SE somehow "degraded" the camera quality.
Still a good camera, though!
Why do you think the new C905 was released?
w995 is supposedly last Walkman phone while C905 is last Cybershot phone as SE plans to merge the lines in future phone models! SE probably intended to keep W phone's camera less than perfect so it would NOT cannabilize the C phone's sales!
Typical Sony Ericsson! No surprise!
C.R, 25 Jul 2009for the price of this phone sony should include the 16gb m2 in the package....This is SE so don't push it as the price of phone is already pricey. SE would price phone higher if 16Gb M2 was supplied. Also, current supplies are still limited so that would also push up the price as well!
