One of the best phones I've had

io_bg has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

I got it in 2009 and had great memories with it. Last month, I broke my last phone and used this little fella for a couple of weeks until I got a new phone. Well, it felt amazing. Except the touchscreen and numerical keys it's got pretty much everything you'd expect from a smartphone - great browser, many customisation options, fast performance, even Google maps. The music player is great as well (though it doesn't play flac files). It only lacks in the camera department.

I think that it is best phone to butIt has been almost a year since i bought this gadget. Its real worthy of its price. Excellent ergonomics, walkman's performance being outstanding. Definitely it can be declared as the best walkman series phone ever released by SE without a speck of a doubt. I strongly recommend this mobile to all you guys who wanna a rocking music phone which is also stylish. it has super sound clarity and super clarity of cam and super features

W595

I have the phone for 1.5 years, and i think it's the best phone you can get for the price. It's a compact phone, with a great design. You can chose from a huge variety of colors. The screen is great, very bright, visible even in high light conditions, but I would like the screen to be 2.4 inch.The batery is quite good, the batery holding about 5 days with medium usage. (total 1 hour of music listening, 30 min of calls)The menu is easy to use.It have flash themes witch makes the phone look cool.  The a2 platform is easy to customize. As a music player is the best. Sound is brilliant via speakers or headphones. The headphones included are very good. The camera takes good pictures in good lighting conditions. Despite the camera lacks autofocus, outside pictures are epic for a 3 mp camera. You can also edit them in photo dj to add some contrast. Inside the pictures are good, but the flash could improve the quality.The best thing of this phone is the media manager where you can find all the videos, pictures, music and games. It also have rss feeds. The internet connection is good, but it lacks wi-fi. The browser is good and it have auto rotate. You can go also for opera mini.Overall is a great phone for who don't want the last gadget on the market.

Pros

  • Very good price.
  • Best sound. Stereo Speakers
  • Decent camera
  • Good battery. With medium usage it can hold 5 days.
  • Compact phone
  • Great package

Cons

  • Camera lacks autofocus and flash.
  • Relative small screen (2.2 inch)

Stupendous phone

Hey, got this phone last month! The best part of SE phones is that they have some charm, unlike the Nokia ones. Of course, the camera is poor, but hey you can't win em all! Added to that is the ergonomic design, which makes it nice to hold and slide; this is the point at which w705 fails. Though this site gave a poor review for this mobile, it is not all that awful. Even the software associated with it is user freindly and nice.
SE MOBILES AND THEIR USERS ROCK!!!!
 

Pros

  • - Good Ergonomic design
  • - A Sony Ericsson phone, hence a charming one
  • - Nice interface
  • - Superb Browser
  • - nice inbuilt applications like photoDJ, rock Bobblehead, walkmate etc.

Cons

  • - Poor camera, which can't zoom in higher reslns
  • - No flash
  • - A bit slow, not much

Master Slider

I've just bought the W595 in C.White. It is the best as ever any walkman phone would get.The latest of all the features.Great large 2.2" screen, extremely clear dual speakers, stereo widening, 2gb Card.You just get in love with it. People critisize about the Camera, Well its a 3.2 mp and has great clear pictures at day and natural colours, But no one bothers to take pictures with a phone now adays, what are the Digital Cameras for??

Pros

  • Excellent clear sound quality through the Dual Speakers.Great walkman software. Large screen. Auto Accelerometer.

Cons

  • No flash, which doesn't matter. Have a Digital camera
