Sony Ericsson W995 Review
Phone contacts disappoint a bit, because there is no option to search through your entries by second names. Still, you can filter entries fast by entering digits on the home screen - the phone will seek through both contact numbers and names. Working with your messages is comfy and a row of icons at the bottom allows you to easily attach symbols, add emoticons and enclose files. When you have finished editing, you can choose whether to send the message as an SMS/MMS or email. The phone comes with preloaded settings for major mainstream email providers - the weird thing is emails cannot be checked over Wi-Fi.
Calendar, alarms and tasks are where they typically are and they are up to the task of keeping your daily routine in order. We are impressed with the sheer number of preloaded apps, most of which are really entertaining. Say, Voice Transformer modifies recorded voices and makes them sound as if said by a robot, a slurring wobbly person etc. and then you can set them as ringtones.
We have already got our keyboards worn out writing Sony Ericsson offers one of the best internet browsers for feature phones. Even heavier pages load without a hitch and the app comes with a pan option to make your navigation even easier. The W995 delivers great connectivity options - HSDPA 7.2Mbit/s and Wi-Fi with DLNA support. The latter allows the phone to wirelessly connect to other devices. The browser home page lets you navigate to PlayNow easily, where you can listen to new bands or install Vringo to download video ringtones.
