Sony Ericsson W395 Review


Despite the fact the phone doesn´t sport the full range of all the rage functions and this shows with its price, the Sony Ericsson W395 Walkman handset leaves us greatly pleased. In contrast to the all-in-one devices that have been pretty popular lately, this handset relies on its two core aspects – communication and audio playback. Sony Ericsson´s newcomer coped with both tasks surprisingly well. Our only complaint is sometimes people we were talking to grumbled over the in-call quality, or specifically, our voices sounded a bit unnatural. Who cares anyway, we were able to hear them pretty well! All kidding aside, it is not that bad. Our conclusion is that buying the W395 seems like quite a reasonable purchase, especially if we throw both its cute appearance and awesome earphones into the deal.


  • Attractive design
  • Ease of use
  • Awesome sound quality


  • Uncomfortable keypad
  • Sound through the stereo speakers could and should have been louder
