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.
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.
