Summary: On the immediate,it is a responsive and comfortable phone.after closer examination,the lack of a camera in a phone this size is odd,to say the least.absence of an expandable memory port definitely overshadows the 4 gigs of onboard storage,but it is EXACTLY what it says it is.a music phone.and in that regard,it gets my praise in spades.
Excerpt: when i first came acrosss this i was like WHAT! it has no camera but the more i thought about, the more it occured to me how silly cameras on mobile phones are! 3 2 1 and some as low as 0.3 (vga) megapixels on phone camers just sounds like toys compared to proper digital cameras which have 8 and above megapixels so to me this phone seems really smart that SE decided to create a music oriented symbian touch phone without a stupid novelty camera.
Excerpt: One feature i like about this mobile is that it is a touchscreen that comes with a stylus, which makes this just like a PDA but smaller. Overall this is a great little device with cool music features with bass that will let you listen to loads of music. This will be liked by lots of people in my opinion, but there is one small problem, it is quite expensive. So i suggest if you really want this mobile phone, then get it.
SE answers Nokia by well integrating Style and Function into the W950i

Summary: Targeted simultaneously at several of the competition phones, this one packs in enough to make you like it over several others in its category. I have been using the phone over the last couple of months, and have been deliberately taken my time to post this review but still I haven't found too many glitches. Previous to this one I was using an i-Mate SP3i; another smart phone, which wasn't really one. Well, SE W950i is a smart phone and it lives up to it.
Summary: I got this phone in February and still have not mastered it, The sound quality is great and gettting the music onto the phone is easy enough but finding it and putting it into the correct folder can prove time consuming. I did not find the manual for this phone user friendly. Deleting messages from their boxes can be quite fustrating as if you click in the wrong place it opens the message and then have to try and delete them again.
Summary: Had it for a few weeks now. Love the music quality from this phone. It is SUPERB. Large touchscreen is good and crisp quality. Videos on fullscreen are also crisp and extremely good considering you use the right software to convert videos (use Ipod video converter). BUT. Annoying keypad. It is very hard to use. When you push one key, several keys surrounding are also pushed. Not much of a PDA phone, More of a multimedia phone.
Pros: Excellent quality for listenin to music. Beats the Ipod anyday. My mini and nano stand no chance against it.
Cons: Bad keypad, handwriting is sometimes not that responsive, Battery life is pretty bad. But still sufficient. I have to charge every 2days but i get alot of music out of it.
