Summary: I bought this phone because of the pleasant 5 years I spent using Sony Ericsson 800i. however it is nowhere near the quality. the phone has poor reception. its battery life is average at best. its games stopped launching within 2 weeks of buying it. and it just feels like a cheap phone that is easy to break.
Summary: Amazon did not specify it was "used". On receipt it was in spanish and had 1100 spanish songs loaded on it which I had to delete individually. The reception isn't good either. My old "english" model was great for reception. No very impressed at all. £100 wasted!!!!
Summary: the big problem being on the keypad I have 2 sets of 6 and 2 sets of mno fortunately the phone has the right numers letters when pressed ie 9 wxyz but its bloody inconvienent I often press the wrong keys when not concentrating but did the compant realise this when they sent it out--no mention of this fault at the time--perhaps thats why it was relatively cheap--but i need a phone as i was going to malta for a month.
Summary: Good-looking, quality-feel Sony mobile phone. I bought it mainly for it's strong point - the sound quality of the Walkman music audio facility. However, its weak-spot is that the flash Lite player provided cannot play YouTube videos and there is no alternative flash player (or browser with built-in flash player) available to download to the phone. For me, this is an occasional frustration but for other purchasers this may well be a major issue.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson w995 is an absolute genius, I think that this is one of the best phones in terms of sound quality and it is very easy to use although I now use an iphone. In fact the only reason I cannot give this phone a 5/5 is due to the poor experience I had with the phone due to it freezing and eventually not working in one year, but it was probably my lack of keeping the phone safe.
Pros: Perfect size, sound, easy to use, fast and appearance.
In my opinion, the best non-touch screen phone on the market

Pros: easy to use keypad great sound quality clear LCD screen with great picture very durable
Summary: I had this phone for a while but I wasn't over struck with any aspect of it, so I got rid of it. Firstly, it didn't take long for the slide up mechanism to catch on things as I have bits and bobs in my bag which obviously got stuck in it. This got extremely annoying after a while as I had to use a lot of extra force to slide the phone up. Its basic design makes it easy to use but for me it was a bit too simple. It lacked the 'wow' factor that I was looking for.
