David, London, UK, 04 Jun 2009Hi guys, I am caught between a rock and a hard place. I will opt for this phone or the Nokia N... moreYou came here, then you will be offered with the W995. Anyhow, without bias, go for the W995... you will get better battery life between each charge, a camera with image stabilization, build quality is solid with metal feel, UI is the well-known SE, Sony OS is stable, plus you'll have a Cybershot and the unmatched Sony's Walkman sound, etc.... the list is long, most of them are published. And it's a Sony, like.no.other.
Hi guys, I am caught between a rock and a hard place. I will opt for this phone or the Nokia N86 (which has 8 GIG internal memory). I've used an 8 GIG internal memory before (N95 8 GIG & N96 - Such internal memory doesn't slow these phones down) N86 is released in late July.
The N86 is uglier and has a lens protector. It also has an OS (Symbian). Does every phone need one. Both have 8 MP camara. I currently have a Nokia 5800 Touch Screen. Great phone but the Touch Screen thing isn't for me. I've had it since April. I will get my new phone soonest.
Comparing prices from UK online prices and converted into three major currencies.
Ericsson W995 is £375 - 427 Euros - $606 US Dollars
This price is from the UK Ericson website. Sim Free.
Nokia N86 Estimated cost when released is £328 - $530 US - 375 Euros.
Please justify in depth why I should opt for either. Please don't be shallow and say looks only.
Head to head
Anonymous, 29 May 2009i really hate 1 thing abt SE... all they have is 256K TFT screen which when played in full scr... moreWhat are you rumbling on about?
The phone's screen colour support has nothing to do with how the video turns out crap on your PC. It's to do with the resolution of your screen, which in almost all PC's nowadays are well over 1024*768 and that the res. for most lowly laptops when you think of the Desktops they are capable of even more 1280x1024 is now the bare minimum in most PC's.
So before you start blabbering and start start slagging Sony Ericsson or any other brand, THINK!
I'm not an SE fanboy by the way, I own 1 N-Series, 1 E-Series, 2 Sony Ericssons and an HTC.
THINK and THEN SPECULATE.
will SE make better walkman phones than w995 ? especialy in sound quality

Same SE Phone without OS And good CPU SE thinks people as du... moreI am sorry for people like you too who think they are too smart and that everybody needs on os in their phone, well pal..sorry to burst ur bubble but thats not the case, not everyone needs an OS, and SE software is the best out there, nokia or samsung can't even touch it.
My friend and I have just purchased this phone today. In Indonesia Mine is silver and his is black. The differences between these 2 colors, are:
1. Silver color has more quality feel to it. It might be that silver one has more metal part attached to it and frankly say that the black one has more plasticky feels.
2. The sliding mechanicsm of the silver color way more solid than the black one. Regarding this disbelief my friend already asked for twice replacements before he finally made a purchase for the black one (the first two were worse than the last one he finally bought and compared to the silver one it still loses on the solidity)
3. Silver color is way more luxurious to the black.
I hope this help people who want to choose between these two colors.
Yes the batteri is good on this phone much better then nokia,
and just so you know, the phone gets very slow with 8 GB internal memory..
Can this phone vibrate and ring simulaneously? I know they were issues on this regarding some previous Ericsons. In the past, certain Ericsons would vibrate twice and then ring only. I need it ring and vibrate together when an incoming call is occuring.
Hi guys, this looks amazing. Is the battery good on this phone? I'll get this or the Nokia N86 (which has an 8 gig internal memory). I currently have a Nokia 5800 Touchscreen but I crave buttons again. Especially as I am a massive mobile gamer. Saves me paying out for a console and I get my mobile games for free. Also what games are already stored on this.
It's a tough choice for me. This or the Nokia N86 which is released in July. It is a penalty shootout. Those who have this phone, give us details in how it is. How long does the battery last? Is WIFI fast? What is sending SMS like? Why do Ericsons use non SD memory cards?
... and here we go again, just like the C901 now someone start playing with the votes...
this is sick
this phone is fantasticccccccccccc just i purchased in pune for 22k features rocks never seen b4 guysss buy this forget nokia,,,,,,,,,,,,
wow.. the features is amazing. But it's ordinary than N86.. I guess the price is same with Xperia In Indonesia... Good LUck SE!!
To those who've owned this phone, could you share with us your experience with it?
