Review Summary

Well, the phone is sleek, but it's lagging when you assess long music lists and playlists. W595 is generally a good phone though, it has a special, although flat keypad, but if you are a right-handed person, you may find it difficult to press key “1” at times, because the thick slider blocks your way. Vice versa for left-handers. Resolution can be improved, as well as the flash and autofocus. The backcover of the phone is very inefficient, you will most likely break it if you do not know how to handle it properly. The slider is very wobbly, you'll have to position your finger 90 degrees to press down, clear or the applications button to prevent it from sliding downwards. If you use the Splatta theme, you'll find that the phone has a good concept of the illumination of the keypad and the navigation buttons. A good phone though, I would give it 7/10.
