Sony Ericsson W950i


The Sony Ericsson W950i smartphone combines huge music storage with painfully slow Internet access.

Handsome. 4GB internal storage. Good music player.

Internet is incredibly slow. Unpleasant flat keypad. Wobbly video capabilities. ; Watch the Sony Ericsson W950i Video Review!

Sony Ericsson W950i


The W950i is packed with cool lifestyle features that should attract the hardcore music lovers who like one phone, one portable media player concept.

Sony Ericsson W950i review


A triumph of style over substance

Good music features

No camera ; Awful keypad

The W950i seems to have been designed with music-playing features in mind, and precious little else

Sony Ericsson W950i


A cross between a smart phone and a 3G phone, Sony Ericsson's W950i offers a massive 4GB of flash memory for music storage, but it is ultimately let d...

4GB flash memory, Excellent music performance, Touch screen and stylus operation, Compact size for smart phone

No Wi-Fi, 3G but no video call, No memory expansion, Keypad hard to press, Sluggish interface at times

An excellent music phone thanks to the Walkman application and a massive 4GB of storage space, but no camera or Wi-Fi and a poor keypad detract from the package.

Sony Ericsson W950i


Convergence? Yeah, Sony Ericsson's heard of it... This is an excellent MP3 phone let down by a clunky PDA interface and no camera.

Large 4GB of space ; Touchscreen ; Good remote ; Best headphones on a portable yet

Annoying keypad ; Stylus feels out of place ; No camera ; No expandable memory

It's hard to imagine who this device is aimed at. It's certainly not teens, who will be put off by features like the stylus and the confusing menus. Business users will also be put off, as its bizarre colour scheme and stunted business features mean...

Sony Ericsson W950i


Sony Ericsson has taken a bold decision with its W950i model by omitting a feature many would regard as being compulsory.

Taking over the role of the flagship Walkman phone is the Sony Ericsson W950i. With this particular model Sony Ericsson has taken the decision which may come as somewhat of a surprise. Unlike all the other mobile phones I've look at, whether from...

Comparison of music smartphones Nokia N91 and Sony Ericsson W950i


Last year's spring saw release of a unique article over at " comparison of the latest and greatest music phones. That editorial prompted a flurry, and our readers were eagerly waiting for the next installment, which was to be...

Apparently, in terms of box contents it is a draw, since for either of the devices the sales package is rich, even though there are some differences: the cradle the N91 comes boxed with and the W950i does not, but in return it shows off a carrying...

A phone for music fans


With a gorgeous touchscreen and 4GB onboard memory, the slim Sony Ericsson W950i definitely has the cool factor. But is this 3G smartphone as hot as it looks

Impressive storage space, brilliant screen, superb sound quality.

No EDGE support, no camera, no WiFi, expensive.

If you want a phone that can subsitute an iPod, the W950i is definitely it.
