Sony Ericsson W395 review

 

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

Sony Ericsson W395 - Pocket-lint

 

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

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...

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...

A Sony Ericsson Slider Phone : Sony Ericsson W395

 

With colours that include Blush and Dusty in their description, it has to be another Sony Ericsson handset that has been the focus of my attention

Other features available with this handset include MMS, SMS, email and motion gaming (three games are provided as standard). The usual array of PDA-style applications such as timer, alarm clock, calendar, address book and calculator are included

Sony Ericsson W395 review

 

The Sony Ericsson W395 is a budget music phone that channels the music playing skills of the outfit's Japanese parent, and stuffs them into a cheery handset with a low pricetag. But is it low enough? Read on and find out in our full Sony Ericsson W395...

Feels just like a Walkman, decent speaker

No 3.5mm audio

A fun, cheap phone if all you want is music

Sony Ericsson W395 review

 

We review the Sony Ericsson W395, the latest in Sony's Walkman line up. But do we sing its praises?

Small and light ; Aesthetically pleasing ; Built-in stereo speakers

Awful proprietary headphones ; No 3.5mm jack

This handset may look like a budget mobile, but it has a lot to offer the die-hard music fan. If you can overlook some of its quirks that is...
