Interface and Functionality:

The interface, of course, is the same we know well from previous models by the manufacturer. You can easily personalize it to your liking, taste and mood by setting different home screen wallpapers, themes or screen savers. Unlike higher ranking models of the manufacturer, you don´t have the option to change the way the menu aspects.


The phonebook  and messaging screens feature a simplified interface that is really easy to use, so neither would give you any trouble and even the first time you get down to any of these you´ll feel as if you have been using the Sony Ericsson W395 for ages. In case you´re more of a punctilious person (which means that you´d rather buy another phone anyway), you can perfectly trust the organizer that sports all functions most people cannot get by without, such as calendar, alarm clock, tasks etc.

Now, let´s focus on the most important aspect of the phone, namely, music. Of course, you´ve got the Sony WALKMAN player. It lets you take your pick from different equalizer presets, Stereo widening, a bunch of visualization patterns, skins, lighting effects (the purple circle of the D-Pad and the Walkman logo start blinking). The stereo loudspeakers measure up to their task and deliver clear sound even if it cannot be distinguished for its unparalleled loudness though. Yet, their performance is a cut above what most other phones on the market deliver as of now. Bear in mind that using a 3.5mm headset requires that you plug in the converter first. Not that this is annoying or anything. We just have to mention the earphones that come in the box are awesome. They managed to deliver a pleasing sound quality and coped pretty well with even the bass frequencies.

The Sony Ericsson W395 also has other extra features directed towards music lovers, such as TrackID to help you identify unknown tracks or FM radio, of which we do not need to talk at length about. The phone also sports a 2-megapixel camera to let you take snapshots, just don´t expect miracles – the pictures are noisy and lack enough details. If you feel like watching your favorite videos, you would need to convert them to MPEG-4 files and be mindful about their resolution – it shouldn´t exceed the one of the display – 176x220 pixels.
