im a sony fan and have only ever used se phones. i love slides, awesome. and i love this phone. thing is, even though its a 8.1 it doesnt shoot like the c905 , atleast what said on gsm.
and i know everyone is talking about the qwvga thing... idc, i dnt record too much, i mean a phone was something to call people.
humans are relying on phones to replace something else too much.
all in all, a great phone and im gonna get it.
btw what is wqvga, qvga,vga etc? everyone keeps on saying it and i must say might be the only flaw for the w995

Alexandre, 09 Mar 2009Sony Ericsson's N95 came too late.If this has been an N95 then I will never use a SE... hahaha ;)

When you get the feel of SE phones you will never look for another brand; Other manufacturers just push the technology to phones that is why most of their product hangs; Nokia users I dare you to drop your phones atleast a meter lat see if it will still work; my SE does.... and I dropped it more than once
I am so disappointed that the speakers are not loud just average according to the review by gsmarena. I am not going to get this phone
since this phone is not a smartphone based on the information from gsmarena. yet, could it be compatible with third party application software?
U2AI, 09 Mar 2009its bcos nokia 8mp is a fraud and dis hikaru aintwow... please explain...???
this phone is going to b the bomb....i love SONYERICSSON phones they r off the hook...no match..
It can be weird but I preffer my ex-k850 over my actual nokia 5800!! Perhaps when you become a SE fanboy for more than 7 years it's hard to accept another brand!
So this w995 with a ''large'' screen and 8mp will be the replacement for my 5800 as soon as it comes out!
I am only afraid about slider quality because the g705 and c905 are wobbly
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2009how is this rated so high and the nokia 8mp rated so low?!?!?! sad SE fans i guess.its bcos nokia 8mp is a fraud and dis hikaru aint
buy w995($550+)phone for only a 3.5mm jack and necessary quality 8.1 mp camera.of course not to mention the qvga screen & qvga video racording.

I saw omnia HD's interface speed..its sooo slow...and N97's slider machanism is yet to pass the test..and ya one more thing the option of card slot is given so that u can choose how much space u want...like i dont want even 2 gb..y should i waste money on a 32gb one which is included with the mobile.
dave, 08 Mar 2009does it have a standard headphone jack?it does hav d standard earphone jack.
The thing is I'll probably have to sell my house and car to get this phone just for the fact that its new even tho its not offering anything new on the table.Everything has been offered before.Damn i love sonyericsson and i love walkman.but give me a break the omnia HD has already offered it all.and nokia n97.everybody has their own innovation.And what the hells the deal with a walkman phone without internal storage memory.N97 gives 32gb internal.
Darn it SE do sth and save urself
Sure it has a killer spec.
But how can anyone overlook the fact that it's only able to record WQVGA videos !!!!
why won't sony ericsson change that!! between SE, LG, Nokia and Samsung. SE is the only one that doesn't have VGA video recording on any of its phones! what's up with that?
I find it hard to believe that Sony Ericsson doesn't have the technology for that
I correct myself X1 can record vga 30fps videos but saves the recorded video in 3gp format!
Wow 1 phone!
