Sony/Sony Ericson don't hesitate to maintain their quality standards(not quantity). Got it?
LGmus Prime, 08 Jul 2009This is a great phone. However one must question the pricing policy of Sony Ericsson phones. W... moreBro, i dunno y u say tat, but at my country (Malaysia), W995 is cheaper (at least 10% exp). Do u research the price b4 u say tat?
While Sony is perfecting their 12MP phones and developing high pixel count phones, Nokia is still struggling in the 8MP phone category.
Because Nokia does not make their own camera sensor, they will have a hard time catching up with Sony.
This is a great phone. However one must question the pricing policy of Sony Ericsson phones. Why the hell does this phone cost more than the N86 or other phones from other brands with the same specs sheet? Hell other phones from different brands which has better spec sheet than this are cheaper. Wake up SE!!!!

Finally, the Update Software has been upgraded to a new version!
It finally works!
The older version Stinks and didn't work my the P1i or the W890i.
Had to use the Newer Update Software to upgrade the firmwares on those older phones as well as the newer W995.
Do NOT forget to download the Firmware update for the W995 after you buy it!!
Currently, the firmware version shown (at least for mine) is....
For all the hype, the new software, MediaGo, still S*cks!
You must tell MediaGo where media files are located on your computer and have it imported. Unfortunately, it does NOT create FOLDERS for each artist and the playlist creation needs work!
MediaGo does NOT HAVE Drag and Drop feature from PC to software so that doubly S*CKS!!
It's no wonder that Apple's iTunes is probably THE BEST media software (except for video conversion which it doesn't do). The simplicity and functionality of iTunes are its best features!!
Also, copying files from MediaGo to phone's media card is So Darn S-L-O-W that it's pathetic! Without this, you can't send playlists to media card. You'll have to MANUALLY and PAINFULLY create playlists on the phone!!
For all of SE phone's glory, the media software is makes is CRAP!
No try, SE, for replacing Media Manager with MediaGo but it's still a NO GOOD compared to iTunes!!
Anonymous, 07 Jul 2009w580 was mid end phone, w995 is mid to hign end phone, do not compare 2, the price that you pa... moreW995 is THE HIGH-END phone in the W series.
It may be The LAST W series phone since SE plans on Merging the Cybershot and Walkman phones, at least on the mid to high end series phones!
No longer do, or should, people have to choose between a camera phone or a media player phone!

When playing music with the homescreen on flash/visualization mode will the screen black out like all other s.e. phones or will it keep the visualizations going until you stop them ?
Any answers highly appreciated !
Greetings from the Greek islands !
omg!!!!!..this phone is so good i love its 8.1 mp cam,,thank to sony ericson!!!:-)
Got it 20 mins ago and home now,,its on 16hr charge even tho there is debate i am doing what i always do and alao the good charge/discharge cycle..Hd a quick play,the themes are dramatic and highly dynamic..The slide is smooth with no wobble closed or open..ITs really classy and quite lite but solid ,i got silver,,the battery cover goes over the 8mp sensor with a slot in it for the sensor cut out of battery cover..The plug in speaker is very low bass for a small box..
