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.
sujoy, 09 Mar 2009man go and get a N97 and Omnia HD at double the price. I saw omnia HD's interface speed..its s... moreomnia interface slow? and n97 mechanism fail test?.SE is realy having a swell time.

Elcrocodilio, 09 Mar 2009The thing is I'll probably have to sell my house and car to get this phone just for the fact t... moreman go and get a N97 and Omnia HD at double the price. 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!
Love the look of this phone,I'm die hard SE fan all I want to ask is will it be late Q2 and will Vodafone include the memory card that most websites are listing as 'In the box'?
Just glad they've done the right thing and given what in my mind the best range of phones a camera to equal the Walkman features!
Yeah the Xenon flash is a big miss on it. Trying to marry the c & w series I thought SE would have put it on. I'd love to see the Xenon flash on the release model. It would make it for me and I'd get it straight out. But in saying that it is a SE they def RULE!!!!!!!!!!
Wat a killa spex list!
Xenon flash is missing :(
No fone is perfect.
SE finally made a phone with all the specs i look for but too bad, not every phone is perfect. this fone is just ugly. looks like any other SE old models.
i fell in love with this phone!! it rly is gr8, even though the cam is not a cyber-shot !!
keep on going SE ... :)
Terminator, 07 Mar 2009After reading the review of GSM Arena all I can say is: What the hell are you waiting for,for ... morei think much time is needed to perfect the mobile or upgrade sum aspects in the hikaru.if the hikaru runs perfectly many ppl wil opt for it instead of d n86 so,caution is required.and another tin SE wants othere stocks to be sold in large amounts before hikaru is released.
