Sony Ericsson W995 review

 

The latest Sony Ericsson Walkman also has an 8 megapixel camera

Walkman music player ; 8.1 megapixel camera ; Decent quality headphones ; Supplied loudspeaker ; A-GPS ; Wi-Fi and HSDPA 3G

Camera disappointing ; Battery life could be better ; Weak video stand

We liked the Sony Ericsson W995 - it's still very much a music phone, and it does it better than virtually anything bar the iPod, and even though its camera isn't quite at the top of the 8 megapixel game, it's certainly good enough to make it worth...

Sony Ericsson W995 - Pocket-lint

 

A great quality of build and slick all round performance, this is a phone for someone who loves music and video on the move, but those 8-megapixels don't

Great specs, build quality, BBC iPlayer and YouTube

Volume/zoom controls too small, camera and video not great

It's difficult not to like the W995 from Sony Ericsson. As an entertainment handset it is comprehensive, providing access to content and the means to get it for free through Wi-Fi. There is even a clip-on speaker bundled in the box that, whilst tinny,...

Sony Ericsson W995 - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

It might not look to push any boundaries, but it does bring the Cyber-shot and Walkman handset together nicely

Wi-Fi, 8-megapixel camera, HSDPA, 3.5mm headphones jack

No touchscreen

Our time was brief however it is clear that Sony Ericsson is hoping that those naysayers who've always complained that the company's music phones weren't good in the camera department, or that their camera phones weren't good in the music department...

Sony Ericsson W995a review

 

The Sony Ericsson W995a hardware has some flaws, but those looking for an all-in-one device (camera, music player, game player, and phone) won't be disappointed. Just remember that it isn't a smartphone, as it lacks the connectivity of that kind of...

The Sony Ericsson Walkman W995a has multimedia features that surpass some of our top-ranked phones. Both the camera and the music player go above and beyond the capabilities of the current BlackBerry model, the HTC smartphones, and even the iPhone 3GS...

Sony Ericsson W995 review

 

The Sony Ericsson W995 rocks up boasting an 8MP snapper and class-leading music chops. Is the wait finally over for the perfect Walkman/Cyber-shot phone hybrid?

Hands down the best Walkman phone ever and a great all-rounder, but the camera falls just short of the Cyber-shots

Sony Ericsson W995

 

This versatile slider phone features a 2.6in screen and offers good usability.

Great camera ; Good connectivity, built-in iPlayer ; 3.5mm headphone jack

Not a full smartphone - proprietary OS ; Lacks dynamism

Yes, I've seen it all before - well except that welcome 3.5mm headphone jack, but I can't help liking the W995. It is not exactly a revolution, but with GPS, Wi-Fi, excellent music playback and control, and a decent camera, it's certainly a...
