Excerpt: El Sony Ericsson W395 es el nuevo terminal de la serie Walkman que si bien es de gama baja frente a otros modelos, se enfoca exclusivamente en ser un excelente reproductor de música objetivo que cumple ampliamente.
Excerpt: This Walkman phone is designed to offer basic music features at a low cost. An uncomplicated slider phone, it looks good, but under-delivers on the music front. What we like Compared to many other phones around at the moment, you’ll barely notice the weight of the W395 in your pocket. It’s cased in plastic, making it light, but it’s done so in an understated, attractive way -- nothing feels overly plasticy.
Conclusion: My main overall reservations about the W395 were that it just felt a bit dated and although its a Walkman phone the music quality was not what I expected. I’m sure you get what you pay for and it just happens to be that this is a low end device.
Summary: The word budget isn’t the most inspiring one in the dictionary and generally is a code word for plain, basic and, often, boring. But Sony Ericsson India has tried not to live up to the stereotype with the latest in its Walkman line-up, the W395. Colour me good The Sony Ericsson W395 is available in a range of hues, some are funky others are fairly traditional.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson W395 is far from perfect, especially as it has a relatively high price compared to other budget phones, and the low quality camera for both imaging and video is inexcusable. The saving grace is the decent Walkman music player, and stereo speakers built-in – although you’ll need to invest in a better set of headphones to enjoy the music properly on the move.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson W395's basic hardware spec fits it's status as a budget phone and for many the feature set will suit. However, the lack of 3.5mm jack undermines its position as a Walkman handset, with the bundled headphones not delivering the impressive performance found elsewhere in the range.
