Summary: Sony Ericsson W995 aptly reaffirms its status as the Walkman-Series Flagship mobile, with a sublime performance in both the music playback test & speaker/headphone audio test; and hence a deserving winner of the Best Music Phone award.
Pros: Excellent music playback quality, Bundled speaker-dock station, 8.1MP high resolution camera
Cons: Lacks a touchscreen interface, Speaker-dock lacks bass & treble control, Camera lacks focus, image clarity & colour crispness
Conclusion: You'll probably know by now if you're a Sony Ericsson fan or not. The Sony Ericsson W995 suffers from all the same drawbacks as previous Walkman mobiles: it's walled off, and lacking the power and customisation of your standard smartphone. If that doesn't bother you though, what you'll find is one of the best multimedia phones on the market, and this time that includes picture taking.
Pros: If there's one thing Sony Ericsson knows how to do, it's make cameraphones, and the Sony Ericsson W995 is no exception. The 8.1MP sensor takes super-sharp snaps, made easier with auto-focus, image stabilisation, face recognition and geo-tagging. As you'd expect from a Walkman, audio quality is great, and there's a 3.5mm port for your own headphones, thankfully. And while the 2.6-inch screen is only QVGA (320x240), it's one of the best we've seen at that size and resol...
Cons: As slick looking as the Sony Ericsson W995 is, don't go getting it into your head it's a smartphone. It's not: you won't find the third party support of similarly specced offerings from Nokia and co. And even if dumbphone status doesn't leave you feeling short changed, the battery life will. Where's all the juice going?
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.
Conclusion: Just a simple glance at the specs of the Sony Ericsson W995 should be enough to convince you that this is the most high-tech model of the Walkman Series. Does that mean it is the best as well? In terms of sound quality (not through the boxed earphones), camera performance and GPS, this is the case indeed. All other functions are on level with what the W705 delivers. In other words – OK, meaning good, but not impressive.
Pros: High audio quality, 8.1-megapixel camera delivering good image quality outdoors, 3.5mm jack, Wi-Fi and DLNA support, GPS and Wayfinder navigator
Cons: Doesn’t support DivX/Xvid, Boxed earphone set is of low quality, Video capture at QVGA resolution, Video stand is unsteady
Summary: With its Walkman and Cybershot series of models, Sony Ericsson has become a leader in the niche categories of camera and music phones. The latest addition - the Sony Ericsson Walkman W995a - delivers the best of both worlds with an 8.1Mp camera and high-quality audio features.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson W-for-Walkman range has a new member that is being hailed as the mother of all W-Series phones. On the surface, it pack a feature punch with a high-end camera, loads of music options and Sony Ericsson have even provided a standard 3.5mm jack so you can use any headphones to listen to Madonna. But does all of this convergence work in this petite package? Let’s find out.
Sony Ericsson W995: Tolles Walkman Handy mit 8 MP-Kamera
21 December 2012
Conclusion: Ein Handy mit einer Ausstattung und Funktionen die fast keine Wünsche offen lassen. Die 8 Megapixel Kamera macht klasse Bilder. Die Lautsprecher haben einen klaren und recht satten Klang. Die Akkuleistung ist auch ok. Das Display ist zwar ein wenig klein geraten um Videos anzuschauen - diese werden jedoch gut dargestellt. Die Verarbeitung ist Top und alles im allem ist das Handy ein super Allrounder.
Excerpt: I nternetin yükselişi ile birlikte büyük miktardaki verilerin paylaşımı ve karşılıklı değişimi de geniş bir kullanım alanı bulmaya başladı. Çoğu programın ve web sayfalarının bu fırsatı değerlendirmeye hevesli olduğunu görüyoruz. Özellikle ilk başlarda müzik endüstrisi yüksek miktarda illegal şarkı indirilmesinden büyük zarar gördü.
