Sony Ericsson W595 review: Music on the slide

 

We've already welcomed the W595 at the proto stage, but this time it's the real deal - we have a retail unit on our hands and we are ready to put it through its paces. The differences from the preceding model...

The Sony Ericsson W595 is currently retailing for about 200 euro - which seems like a reasonable price - but a true evaluation demands a little digging and some comparisons

Sony Ericsson W595 preview

 

The Sony Ericsson W580 was a great hit, especially among youngsters, and its successor, the W595, is set to take over where W580 left. W595 is a funky looking HSDPA-enabled Walkman phone in a slick and thin slider trim that will appeal to most.

Sony Ericsson W595 Review

 

Tired of listening to music alone? You wish to share this experience with friends? According to Sony Ericsson, their new music slider is the perfect opportunity for this.

Sony Ericsson W595 Preview

 

Sony Ericsson W580 is one of the most successful models from the Walkman series of the manufacturer. A proof for that are the multiple color versions it is offered in. Not long ago, its successor was announced. It supports 3G, the camera now offers...

Sony Ericsson W595

 

A 3.5G slider phone with a 3.2 megapixel camera, the Sony Ericsson W595 is aimed at the midrange market.. but it makes a few compromises along the way.

Sony Ericsson W595

 

The new Sony Ericsson W595 is a nice slider cell phone that is yet another of Sony's newest line of walkman phones. The Sony Ericsson W595 is different in many ways, including the new option of a share jack headset port, so a friend can also listen in...

Another great new feature includes the Sense Me feature, which allows you to play music based on your mood at the time. The phone also includes a built in FM radio and stereo speakers. One of the greatest revelations in cell phone technology is also...

Sony Ericsson W595

 

Sony Ericsson's latest Walkman slider won't excite, but this HSDPA-capable mobile phone does the basics well.

Price, Walkman interface, HSDPA-capable, TrackID, M2 card slot, good call quality

Flimsy design, cramped controls, flat keypad, no 3.5mm headphone jack

Sony Ericsson's W595 doesn't deliver anything new or innovative and its build quality is questionable. However for the features it offers, it's reasonable value.

Sony Ericsson W595 review

 

Sony Ericsson proves there's more to Walkman than mobile music

HSDPA ; Excellent Walkman music player ; Good quality earphones ; 2GB memory card supplied ; YouTube application ; 3.2-megapixel camera ; Excellent build quality and smart design ; Added social networking apps on some models ; Loud loudspeaker ; Good...

Camera quality is limited ; No Wi-Fi ; No smartphone operating system ; Awkward back panel battery casing ; Difficult to access memory card ; 3.5mm socket is on earphone adapter rather than on body

A well made and stylish Walkman phone that most people would be more than happy to find in their stocking come Christmas morning

Sony Ericsson W595

 

The W595 is a simple upgrade to some of Sony Ericsson's other Walkman handsets. In fact you might say it's the same as an earlier model the W890, only in a different form factor. The Specs are almost identical with a few minor distinctions. Take a...

With a price tag of Rs. 13, 000, I think there are better options out there for a music enabled handset with fewer hassles. 3G is still a ways off for us so that's a negated feature. There isn’t too much of a difference between a two and a three...

Sony Ericsson W595 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

Yet another Walkman handset, but can this one stand out from the plethora of others available from Sony Ericsson? We get dialling to find out. Sitting

YouTube upload feature, music player, paint pot theme, HSDPA

Doesn't do much else beyond music or video, better options out there

Get past the music and video features and the phone is rather basic. Great if that's all you want.
