Feature phones do not enjoy much popularity lately, especially when compared to smartphones that, in turn, are getting more and more advanced. Sony Ericsson managed to win recognition as a leading manufacturer of feature phones based on specific...

Essentially, this is a slider version of the existing W302. There's a pretty comprehensive media player, FM radio and stereo Bluetooth. The W395 ships with a 1GB memory card in the box, which is enough for a modest amount of music.

A cheap new Walkman music phone which gets the job done

High quality walkman player ; 1GB Memory Stick bundled ; Stereo speakers ; FM radio included

Camera is fairly poor ; No 3G connection ; No flash for camera ; Basic browser ; Clunky email setup

There's plenty more it could have packed in, but as it stands, its key features – including that loud loudspeaker - will have plenty of appeal for its younger target audience who are after a high quality tune-playing mobile that's got enough of the...

Price, build quality, keyboard, stereo speakers built-in

No 3.5mm jack, video capture poor, poor bundled headphones

The Sony Ericsson W395's basic hardware spec fits it's status as a budget phone and for many the feature set will suit. However, the lack of 3.5mm jack undermines its position as a Walkman handset, with the bundled headphones not delivering the...

Can the W395 live up to the Walkman name?

Price, build quality, keyboard, stereo speakers built-in

A basic handset with limited spec that is a fair operator, but with a few noticeable shortcomings

The Sony Ericsson W395 Walkman's screen and camera aren't wonderful, but, in pretty much every other respect, this phone puts in a better performance than you'd expect from a mobile with such a low price tag

Good music player ; Decent headphones ; Excellent build quality

Poor camera ; Small keypad

Conclusion The Sony Ericsson W395 Walkman boasts an excellent music player, great on-board speakers and a decent line-up of features. Its budget nature may be evident in its low-resolution screen and basic camera, but, in pretty much every other...

Compared to many other phones around at the moment, you'll barely notice the weight of the W395 in your pocket.

What is given with one hand (1GB microSD card) is taken away with the other (proprietary headphone jack), making this a phone of compromises, and ultimately, means it pleases no one.

Great size, cute speakers

No 3.5mm headphone jack and no 3G

Sony Ericsson W395 Review

 

Sony Ericsson is gradually moving towards concentrating on mid to high range handsets, but there's no denying that the Swedish manufacturer's current portfolio includes a phone for all, and the W395 hits the low-to-mid budget, just above the W205 in...

The Sony Ericsson W395 is far from perfect, especially as it has a relatively high price compared to other budget phones, and the low quality camera for both imaging and video is inexcusable. The saving grace is the decent Walkman music player, and...
