C.R, 22 Jul 2009thanx ror your comments im ordering it tomorrow im just having trouble choosing between black ... morelol same problem that i faced choosing the color :P
finally i did choose the black one xD
never mind, it does have a radio, i didn't read the specifications carefully. :)
I was wondering if there was a way to stop the screen from timing out when listening to music.
Any ideas ?
JaCoB...,Kuwait, 22 Jul 2009well i got the phone for almost 2 weeks now so i cant tell u if they r going to fall or not ... morethanx ror your comments im ordering it tomorrow im just having trouble choosing between black or silver i think i like the chrome look
Thank you for reply. I like the phone but dislike the light sensor feature, it's annoying when it fade in and out.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2009I like the phone a lot, but the screen light is fade out and bright, anyone have the same prob... moreits the light sensor top left adjusting backlight to conserve battery,,it dims in the dark so as not to strain your eyes and brightens up screen in daylight,but if your in dark but the sensor gets bright light on it from being near window it gets brighter..
Sweetkiss, 21 Jul 2009I have no regret when i traded my N82 with W995.This SE is a great one. I can download so many... moreI just own this phone a couple hours ago...any great sites that can download cool applications for this phone???Thx
Anyone used the "Walk Mate" feature?
Is it useful??
Do not have it on my model!
Only thing similar is "Tracker" under:
Menu - Location services - Tracker
It's GPS based and tracks where you go.
Is this similar to "Walk Mate"?
Can it be downloaded anywhere??
SP, 21 Jul 2009Don't get me wrong...I think the phone is good but I was expecting better quality from the cam... moreNope, you're correct.
For the high-end Walkman phone and the high price, the W995 should have included a "better" camera that rivals that of the Cybershot phones or Cameras.
It's not good for night or long-distance shots but it's good day/short-distance shots.
But it's a given that the phone excels in the media player since it is a Walkman phone.
This is "supposedly" the "last" Walkman phone as SE is reportedly stating in various news reports that it may merge certain phone lines. If so, SE screwed up in ending the Walkman line with a so-so camera!
Randy, 21 Jul 2009**Update**
If other people are searching high and low for the IM feature on their W995a, so... moreThat's strange...
Bought the Asian version when w995 first came out in Asia and it's there under:
Menu - Messaging - IM
But it could be a regional feature so that would explain it since different settings/features are phone dependent on phone market region.
For example... iBBC player is meant for UK market!
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2009I like the phone a lot, but the screen light is fade out and bright, anyone have the same prob... moreBrightness and fade out isn't a problem.
You can set brightness level in Settings.
Fade out is somewhat related to Brightness setting and used to conserve battery life and appears to be a fixed setting.
I am planning to buy it . Can you pls tell me about the camera resolution and the sound . Shall i play video or movie or not .
C.R, 22 Jul 2009ive been saving my money for this thing since i first saw it one hundred more bucks to go i ju... morewell i got the phone for almost 2 weeks now
