Walkman W995A

 

With its Walkman and Cybershot series of models, Sony Ericsson has become a leader in the niche categories of camera and music phones. The latest addition to its North American Walkman line, the Sony Ericsson Walkman W995a ($600, unlocked, as of...

Superb audio quality Excellent 8-megapixel camera

No touch screen or keyboard Battery life disappoints

Sony Ericsson Walkman W995A Phone Review

 

Superb audio quality ; Excellent 8-megapixel camera

No touch screen or keyboard ; Battery life disappoints

Though it has an excellent camera and music player, the Sony Ericsson Walkman W995a falls short in battery life and design.

Review: Sony Ericsson w995a

 

The recipe for cooking up a sweet multimedia phone? Take one part phone, mix two parts MP3 player, throw in some cool backlit buttons to...

Standard headphone jack FTW. Slick animated menus and overall presentation. Sports a mini-kickstand for propping the phone up to watch video. Brilliant and colorful 2.6-inch 320×240 display. Decent audio clarity during headphone use. Decent data speeds...

Low volume for music and calls. Music or voice, it doesn’t matter — the speakerphone just sucks. E-mail client is both chintzy and web-based. Mediocre call quality. Buttons sit in recessions so deep, they need a government bailout

Sony Ericsson W995a (Unlocked)

 

Sony Ericsson's W995a is the company's latest attempt to woo high-end customers looking for a striking unlocked smartphone.

Chic styling. Stellar music and video playback. Robust GPS navigation.

Short battery life. Perplexing UI. Screen could use more pixels.

Sony Ericsson W995a review: Sony Ericsson W995a

 

Sometimes, we get excited about the little things. For example, when we first saw the Sony Ericsson W995a at GSMA 2009 we got excited not because it has an 8.1-megapixel camera and a Walkman player--we've seen those before--but because it had a...

The Sony Ericsson W995a has a brilliant display and a loaded feature set that includes Wi-Fi and 3G. It also offers a 3.5-millimeter headset jack and a kickstand.

The Sony Ericsson W995a keypad doesn't feel sturdy and e-mail support is limited. Call quality could be variable and videos were unimpressive.

The Sony Ericsson W995a suffers from some design concerns and performance issues, but it remains an attractive and functional music phone.

Sony Ericsson W995 review

 

The Sony Ericsson W995 is perhaps one of the most important and interesting offerings in Sony Ericsson?s 2009 portfolio. As clearly suggested by the product name the phone is a high-end class Walkman phone, but that?s not all. Sony Ericsson launched...
