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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Overall I think the target market for this device is most defiantly children. If having never owned a mobile before then this is not a bad choice. At under £60.00 on pay as you go its reasonable and it must be popular as I found it for sale with all four major UK networks.
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.
