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 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

Get past the music and video features and the phone is rather basic

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.

Sony Ericsson W595

 

If you're a fan of pop music, and like to keep your library fresh, a MusicStation mobile well worth investigating

Feels good in the hand ; smart interface ; MusicStation software has plenty of appeal ; decent sound

Variable MusicStation file sizes ; no headphone jack ; could be slightly more intuitive

Sony Ericsson W595 Review

 

The Sony Ericsson W595 is an improved version of the W580 that boasts 3G support, a 3.2-megapixel camera, stereo speakers and the 'share jack' that allows you to plug two sets of headphones in, so that…

Sony Ericsson W595 : Sony Ericsson W595 mobile phone

 

When the choice of colours is Lava Black, Jungle Grey, Cosmopolitan White or Active Blue, then you should have a fairly good idea that the subject mater will be a Sony Ericsson mobile phone.

In this case the phone belongs to the Walkman series and bears the W595 designation. The combination of the Active blue colouring with silver trimmings and slopping curves at the top and bottom of the unit give this handset a stylish appearance.

Sony Ericsson - W595

 

Sony Ericsson doesn't always get the design of its mobiles right. Most significantly, buttons can be too small and fiddly for the average finger to get to grips with. And then there is the ridiculous shake ...

Sony Ericsson proves it can do good design with this handset and it is a very neat mid-range option. Just don't expect perfect photos every time, or that the headphones will slip into the tiniest of pockets.

Sony Ericsson W595

 

Share your favourite sounds through the built-in stereo speakers or let a friend listen in from an additional headset via the stereo Share jack. The W595 is all about music featuring shake control technology.

The W595 offers good sound quality and decent camera.

It has no camera flash and the phone lacks a 3.5 mm jack.

Sony Ericsson W595 review

 

The Sony Ericsson W595 is yet another addition to the ever expanding Walkman range of phones by Sony Ericsson so what sets the W595 aside from its fellow devices in the Walkman family and more importantly for Sony Ericsson how does it...

Sony Ericsson W595

 

Progress for the sake of progress

Although it's a bit easier on the eye than the W580, Sony Ericsson's latest Walkman phone is more of a minor evolution than a major revolution and in our opinion doesn't offer enough in the way of new features to be considered a truly viable upgrade
