Ive had the w995 for 2 weeks and there really is not much of a down side to the phone its far superior to the c905. for a start it does not have the faulty keypad the C905 Had its a lot sleaker and has a real smooth slide function. The camera does perform very well for a 8.1 and whats wrond with the flash as has been earlier commented (some people on here should get a grip) 8GB mem card included good start i have upgraded to 16gb card. the movies that you can download and watch for free are great and well watchable the screen is clear and great quality (dude you want a omnia go and buy one instead of harping on abut quality) most people read reviews before they buy a phone so they know what they are getting.. the music player with the latest walkman 4.0 software is fantastic.. ok some of the built in utilities like rock bobblehead is just daft but all phones have daft we apps that keep us entertained.. overall build qualiy is the best ive seen in a SE in a long time and the inclusion of a 3.5mm jack is just perfect see SE Does listen to what the customer wants.. I am a bit of a phone freak i buy every model that comes out just about play with it for a while and then sell them on so i really do know what i am talking about...
with the video format can you view these in full screen or is it just the phones resolution??
LGmus Prime, 23 Jul 2009Hahaha. Here is a review of the W995 http: // www. mobile-review.com/review/sonyericsson-w9... moreCant understand what w995 he was using but it must be a pre release version cause it not very much like i am using..Hes got v3.0 walkman with vga video recording and allsorts of oddities in his report,,weird cause i usually trust mobilreview ..Anyway i like it so thats all thats matters just saving now for xperia x2 which looks like its resolved the issues which i had with x1 ,,i dont think some people understand windows its a really techy platform but hard to use and people just want ease of use which is fairplay ..I never got bored with htc touch ,,xperia just hardware specs needed upgrading,,that said w995 has a lot in it for non smarfone but cant wait to get back into smartfone market..Still using innovate but symbian is getting lame now,,i had it 6 yrs and nowts changed same old apps..
has anyone here with w995 already experienced while ur browsing with the menu suddenly it will hang? then, i have to close d unit n open it again to go back to my previous search.
i just bought it recently i don't know y it's happening...

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!
