love my w995 ..jz got it for 1 week .. nice display n design.. nice finishing too.. very fast wifi n bluetooth.. no lag at all.. the slider is pretty solid (maybe cos mine still new) one downside is the camera... im expecting it to be a bit better considering is 8.1 mp ..
I know we have no operation system on w995, but still can we run Skype in some way?
It's pitty if not, coz of excellent Wi-Fi on board.

This may the THE LAST W series SE phone so enjoy it as SE is trying to merge the Walkman phones and Cybershot phones!
They did a "decent" job with the W995 but the camera have been better. The pictures aren't terrific but it's OK! Just do NOT depend on it for "precious" moment shots!
Also, when using the zoom or taking night shots, the pictures are NOT that good!
Stick with a dedicated camera or at least a camera phone!
Otherwise, it's not bad! Just remember that this is a WALKMAN phone for music, hence the W series!!
Remember that and you won't be disappointed that much when using the phone's camera!

The 8MG pix camera isn't that bad but the older P1i's was MUCH better with a lower mg pix camera!
SE did not give enough of the Cybershot camera specs into the W995 as it should have! Instead, SE focused more on the Media player (HENCE, the W as in WALKMAN in the W995)!!
If you want a camera, buy a camera!
If you want a camera in a phone, buy a camera phone!
W series is meant for Media such as MUSIC!!
LGmus Prime, 08 Jul 2009This is a great phone. However one must question the pricing policy of Sony Ericsson phones. W... moreSE phones ALWAYS DEMAND a price premium as SE Officially states that they make phones primarily in the High End phone market!!
Get used to be ripped off by SE!
Otherwise, either pay the high price as many people do or wait a couple of months and let the prices DROP! By then, it'll still be relatively high but more affordable AND hopefully most software kinks would have been "fixed"!
Bryan, 08 Jul 2009For those of you who are loading movies onto your W995, what format are the movies you're load... moreMovie codecs are listed in the Users Guide as mp4 similar to ones used in the iPhone and PSP consoles!
MediaGo FAQ already states that Divx/Xvid encoding may NOT be supported.
SE W995 Users Guide states to use Mpeg4 encoding!

To anonymous :
I agree that the omnia hd is a great handset,I was about to pick one up but opted for the w995 for 2 basic reasons.1,I'm so sick of shiny black plastic fingerprint magnets and the inevitable constant wipedowns,(w995 is matt and metal).2.Sunlight visibility.S.E. handsets have always excelled in both quality displays and super sun visibility.
A friend got the omnia hd last week,and the display under the harsh Greek island sun is almost invisible.
True,indoors and at night the omnia rocks.I also love the music visualizations on the omnia.
At any rate the w995 is really a high-end unit and I love using it !
