I just got my w995! this is my 1st Walkman Phone. Been a cybershot fan all my along. i just have some querries with those who have this phone for long period bcoz this phone was hand carried without the box and other contents. just the phone, headset & charger.
1st - is the MEDIA GO apps already in the PHONE/MEM-CARD? bcoz the availale space on phone is only 37MB
2nd - should i upgrade firmware??? what benefit does it do upgrading it?
3rd - since i've been used to K800 & C901, photos on this W995 does not impress me. its 8mp camera does not even match C901 clarity.
Videos are only about 70% quality of my C901. can anybody out there please help me make my phone a better one like the ones you have. TNX 7 MORE POWER

Sebastian, 31 Mar 2010Im planning to buy SE Satio but then I saw SE W995a. It made me confuse which phone to buy sin... moreI have a SE W995 since last summer great phone, great sound and not one problem with the sliding motion of the W995. Go 4 it.
i have a question,
i bought my w995 and it came with carrier installed apps. how to delete them. also on main screen the left and right button also have carrier installed options, how to change them. i tried in customize shortcuts but it works only in the d pad not the left and right button.
is there any way i can download and install sony's original software.
i've been using the W995 for 2 months now and i realy love it except for some minor software issues like if i have several missed calls from the same no. it only shows me time&date of the last call
of this no., any solution for that?
Hai there i am one proud owner of W 995, i got this baby on feb 1, its 2 months now & i want to share my hands on experience with all of U.
First of all i thank GSMarena for reviewing this set, as i am a music freek, your comments really helped me.
I really appreciate W 995 for its music capabilities...clear bass & clear stereo.......fantastic
U people really have to experience it to believe it...trust me its great.
Because W 995 lacks camera chutter....the kick stand is really protecting the lens cover from scratches & preasure.
I use the SE bluetooth HBH DS- 220, which improves the music quality even better than the wired handfree.
The build quality is great....messaging is so simple...browsing the net is a piece of cake........WIFI is fine.....display is brilliant.......cam picture quality is awsome....U need to adjust the setting according to the situation....as it has the options like Auto, Daylight...Cloudy...these settings really improves the Pic quality....thats all for this short period....its from my heart....I wish SE & GSMarena guys all the best...thks
