Excerpt: i used this phone for 3 months and then had to sell it. reason: poor battery life. i remember i could hardly talk for over 30 mins even after fully charging it, and i use only 2G network. the reviews here are not talking about this problem, i wonder if i accidentally bought a faulty handset.
Excerpt: The phone is very complicated to use. You have to be all the time with the manual on your other hand. Really poor battery life. Some menu freezes. vibration on the keys lost after 2 days. Had to do restart, and i'm having it for just 3 days. Not quick share with the pc. Dissapointed in general.
Excerpt: For a walkman phone...I'm coming from the w800i, it hasn't moved on at all, infact it has gone backwards. Yes you get a cool interface, but it is far too quite at max volume! No user eq just rubbish presets, nice sound quality but nothing too different from other w series.
Nice compact phone that will take some time to get used to.

Excerpt: The w960i was my first smartphone but having used Sony ericssons in the past I thought I knew what I was letting myself in for. Sadly this was not the case. For starters the w960 runs the symbian UIQ3 OS which is kind of obsolete now.
Excerpt: I have had quite a few Sony Ericsson Walkman phones over the years; W810i, W950i, and the most recent one was this, the W950i. The features it boasts are the touch screen, regular keypad, walkman software, 8gb memory and unlike its predecessor has two cameras (one for video conferencing and one for...
Was good at the time but there is so much more out there that is better

Excerpt: I originally had the 950i and if you have read my review you will see i wasn't impressed however, I liked the idea so I decidied to give the W960i a go. Well it certainly doesn't crash all the time like the last one did and to start off i loved this phone.
Excerpt: I got my Sony Ericsson W960i back in January 2008, and for about 6 months I didn't have any major issues. The phone is fairly attractive which large buttons and a large display (two of my favourite features).
Summary: When I first got this phone I loved it: - great organisational features (e.g. you can display your to do list on the front menu and update it on the fly - writing texts and notes is easy - sound quality is great - solid build quality - acceptable camera and batt life - navigation and touch screen is...
Excerpt: It's touch screen is highly sensitive to even slight falls--becomes unresponsive. The jock key dial at the side may be handy whenever the touch screen fails but it cannot navigate the both sides of 3 options placed horizontally. Touch screen quality is very poor!
Excerpt: I was experiencing a musical experience with Sony Erricson. As I have a flare for music, I prefered this handset over Nokia Music series and finally benefitted. The sound system is very good and once I had purchased this handset, I don't feel the need of carrying a MP4 or a walkmen along.
