  • Summary: The best Walkman phone we've ever clapped eyes on. Or should that be ears? Either way, the sonic brilliance coupled with a superb screen and stunning battery outweighs its dodgy design.

What Hi-Fi?
30 May 2009
  • Excerpt: It's said that familiarity breeds contempt, but in the world of mobile phones we think it's more a case of better the devil you know. While Nokia led the way in terms of sheer ease of use when mobiles first emerged, Sony Ericsson has since more than matched it, and so provides perhaps the most welcoming and intuitive traditional phone interface here. So we're soon working our way through the brand new W980 Walkman phone's features.
  • Pros: Simple to use, sensible menu and button layout, good spec
  • Cons: Audio and video playback are bettered

  • Conclusion: Das Herzstück des W980 ist der Musicplayer aus der Walkman®-Reihe. Keine Frage, der Klang ist dabei absolut überzeugend und die Bedienbarkeit lässt keinen Kummer aufkommen. Das Design des schwarzen Klappers ist relativ gewöhnungsbedürftig. Die gut durchdachte Bedienung (Stichwort Tastensperre) macht viel Freude und über den etwas altbackenen Charme der hauseigenen Menüstruktur kann man geteilter Meinung sein.

  • Conclusion: Sony Ericsson W980i è molto chiaramente un cellulare dedicato agli amanti dalla musica, come si evince dai tasti musicali posizionati sulla scocca, dagli auricolari di qualità e da una memoria da 8 GB. Anche il resto delle caratteristiche, però, è molto interessante. Da sottolineare la presenza della tecnologia HSDPA, di una fotocamera da 3,2 MP, delle videochiamate e del contapassi.
  • Pros: HSDPA

Walkman-Handy mit zahlreichen Funktionen: Sony Ericsson W980

CNET
18 August 2008
  • Summary: Sony Ericssons W980 ist kein wirklich innovatives Handy. Es taugt auch immer noch nicht als vollwertiger MP3-Player. Dennoch ist es in vielerlei Hinsicht ein großartiges Mobiltelefon mit zahlreichen Funktionen, unter anderem automatischem E-Mail-Empfang.
  • Pros: solide Bauform, hervorragende Displays, Unterstützung für Microsoft Exchange und Push-E-Mail, HSDPA, integrierter UKW-Transmitter
  • Cons: keine 3,5-Millimeter-Kopfhörerbuchse, nicht wirklich innovativ, Speicher nicht erweiterbar, kein Blitz
