Summary: This phone is pretty nice. The aluminum backplate gives the product a premium feel to it. The software is good, but the only complaint I have is with the hardware. The battery life tends to be a bit on the short side.
Excerpt: Mehh, if i were you i wouldn't buy as it constantly reboots itself which gets majorly annoying when your texting two people at the same time!!! The internet also freezes quite a bit but i must say this phone always gives you a good reception....
Excerpt: It has a great walkman software,java,quality 3.2MPX Camera,mediacenter,java and HSDPA.I LOve that phone from the day i've got it.It's great.And ultra thin.The phone is ready for navigation(gps) but only softwarely.It don't have gps-you should buy it as accsesoary.
Excerpt: Really good phone, the only thing that I can fault is the fact that it reboots, but I have had 4 Sony Ericsson's in the past and they have all had this problem so I assume it happens with every Sony Ericsson handset.
Pros: Good Camera, Good Design, Good Sound Quality, Good Layout, Metallic Finish, Easy to Use
Excerpt: Have had this phone for nearly a year now. SonyEricsson need to sort out their phone software issues because on numerous occasions this phone has rebooted. There was a time when all it would do was reboot every 5 seconds after coming back on again, like it was having an epileptic fit.
Pros: Excellent Design, Brilliant Walkman Software, Improved PC Suite - but still buggy.
Cons: Reboots - A standard thing with Sony handsets, Battery not that great, Camera pretty average, Poor talk/sound quality, Calendar pretty average, Poor synchronisation with Outlook, Ringing/Alert quality
Summary: It's a decent phone with good reception. The media player is a mixed blessing. Sure, it plays music and audiobooks and it sounds fine but ... Bad news.... 1. The controls are still too SMALL and NOT that user friendly.
Pros: Good reception, good music playback, good looks
Cons: Pricey, tiny controls, lack of 3.5mm port, media player software issues
Excerpt: I read >100 reviews on mobile phone in this price range. W890 get the best comment from most users & editors. I finally decide to change from Nokia (after being Nokia fan for 13 years) to this SE W890. After get the phone and play for several days.
