Excerpt: For $18 off of the AT&T website (due to upgrade fee, wish it was totally free), this phone does more than I need. The Sony Ericsson W508 includes many features such as picture and video camera, plays mp3s, plays games, radio (needs handsfree cord) and more! There are a great selection of games, and I was surprised that this phone has an accelerometer in it. The only game (that came included) that uses the accelerometer is bowling.
Excerpt: I was so excited to finally get a new phone, but have been supremely disappointed in this one. There have been issues since day one. Often when sending or receiving a text the phone will go completely black, like it has been turned off. It will remain in that frozen state sometimes as long as 5-10 min. It has a hard time processing multimedia texts and is slow in sending them. The front display for both time, and the walkman feature most often displays "failed"...
Excerpt: I had problems with this phone from the day I brought it. the phone would get locked up and shut off by itself. I brought it because I liked the way it looked and that was a mistake and a half. I would do my research from now on when I go to buy a Sony Erricson again. I called the company that I brought it from and they sent me a new and that one was broken too. the replacement would not even come on. It just showed a black screen even when it was fully charged.
Excerpt: From the very begining i have had non stop problems. The first phone powered off all the time, the second phone would not work at all. I would try to sync my bluetooth and it would go to games. Now I am on my third phone and just gave up, the mp3 feature does not work at all, the front controls don't work, when I take a picture I have to remove the battery and power back up to see it, and when I text in conversation mode it only shows replies not what I sent.
Excerpt: Based on its price, I think this phone's features and specifications give cell phone users what they want. It's a 3G phone, which has secondary camera, It has 3.15 megapixel camera. But this is a Walkman phone anyway, so just drop the camera capability. It sounds quality is pretty good, the battery life quality is fair enough.
Excerpt: The HSDPA is there to support the internet connection, and this technology works very well in this phone because until now I find no flaws with the internet connection. It just goes smoothly and fast with HSDPA, and how I love W508 even more because of that. The games in this phone are Bowling, FMX III, dan Guitar Rock. When playing Bowling, I have to rock the phone exactly like playing bowling in the real life to score. Cool right?
