Sony Ericsson W995 Review

Category : Sony Ericsson

The Sony Ericsson W995 is another handset from the Walkman range. The phone features an 8.1 megapixel camera, an improved media syncing system, HSDPA 3G, Wi-Fi and A-GPS all packed into a chunky yet slim slider phone. It measures in at 97x49x15mm and 113g.  The W995′s LCD screen is good with 240×320-pixel and 262,000 colours.  The only downside is that it’s only 2.6in – which doesn’t reflect well with the media player. The 8.1 megapixel camera has the standard LED, an image stabiliser and auto focus, as well as smile detection and the excellent BestPic, which takes seven pictures in one quick blast, both before and after you press the shutter. There’s also a 16x digital zoom, macro setting and panorama.

Music is obviously the key thing for the W995 with excellent sound quality augmented by Clear Stereo and Clear Bass features, as well as a five-band graphic equaliser and FM radio with RDS. The W995 comes with its own set of external stereo speakers. The Sony Ericsson W995 plays MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC and WMA audio formats and MPEG-4 and WMV formats for video. Playback quality was good, but not all formats can be shown full screen.

The Access Netfront browser gives great web browsing. The handsets accelerometer will change the screen to landscape mode when your turn it on its side and you can zoom in or out in ten% increments. There is also copy and paste options available, search web pages for key words, save pictures and view pages as text only. The phone has great connectivity options, including quad-band GSM, GPRS, HSDPA 3G fast internet connection (up to 7.2Mbps), Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth 2.0 with stereo A2DP. It will also link up to Mac or PC for syncing or charging via USB 2.0. The onboard A-GPS is supported by Google Maps. Sony Ericsson’s NearMe application is simple to use and there is also a preloaded trial version of the Wayfinder Navigator sat nav.

The 118MB of memory isn‘t great, but it does comes with an 8GB Memory Stick Micro card. Battery life gives up to 9 hours talk time and 370 hours standby.
The handset is all about music and this is one thing is does well, the sound quality is great and browsing through your favourite tracks and albums is a breeze.
