Sony W995 Review: In Depth

28 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson W995 looks like the Walkman phone we've all been waiting for. Packed with features and a 3.5mm headphone jack, it looks like it could be a winner. Read our review to find out if Sony Ericsson has cracked the Walkman code or if it's just another rehash of an old phone. What we like When you fist take the W995 out of the box you'll be surprised by its size -- it's a lot smaller than it looks in pictures.

Sony Ericsson W995a (Unlocked)

PC Magazine
5 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Sony Ericsson's unlocked W995a is an attractive phone and an excellent media player, but its high, unsubsidized price will limit adoption to the Sony faithful.
  • Pros: Chic styling. Stellar music and video playback. Robust GPS navigation.
  • Cons: Short battery life. Perplexing UI. Screen could use more pixels.

  • Conclusion: Although I was a bit disappointed with the camera I think it’s not a huge downfall – it is a Walkman phone after all and you can take relatively decent pictures.

Sony Ericsson W995 Review – discover the best kept secret in mobile phones

13 November 2009
  • Conclusion: So, should you buy the Sony Ericsson W995? If you’re looking for a feature-rich high-end mobile phone that takes great pictures and has the best in class sound system, then yes, the W995 should be top of your list! It doesn’t have the slick touchscreen user interface of the average smartphone – it’s just a straightforward high-end mobile phone. But because of that, you get to buy the W995 at a knock down price. Bad news for Sony Ericsson, but great news for you!

Mobile Review
20 July 2009
  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson W995 doesn't bring anything new to the table with its moderately strong vibro alert, a bit too loud ring tones and decent call quality. Let me be honest - I spent a whole lot of time writing this review, trying to play the role of devil's advocate, forcing myself to dig deeper into the phone's menus and specs in order to find more positive things about it.

Sony Ericsson W995a Review

14 July 2009
  • Conclusion: In a time when $200 gets you a touch-screen smartphone with at least a 3-inch screen, 16GB of memory, a full HTML Web browser and a QWERTY keyboard, $600 for a slider phone with a pedantic 2.6-inch screen just seems unreasonable, even if its 8.1-megapixel camera produced spectacular results – which it doesn’t. There are plenty of sub-$100 subsidized phones that perform most of the W995a’s tricks, and unique options are not worth another $500.
  • Pros: 8.1 MP camera; speedy Web access and full email access; external access and controls for camera and music; stereo speakers
  • Cons: Expensive; disappointing photos; anachronistic Ericsson connecting jack; below-average talk time

10 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Sony Ericsson Walkman phone fans have enough to be excited about with the W995a: it has an excellent music playback experience thanks to the easy-to-use UI and the new Walkman Player software. The dedicated hardware music controls, very nice sounding stereo speakers, 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and Bluetooth A2DP round out a strong music-centric package. Add a built-in GPS with Google Maps, U.S.
  • Pros: Great music features and loud stereo speakers. Good call quality.
  • Cons: 8.1-megapixel camera doesn’t make it a killer camera phone. Price isn’t competitive.
