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...

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


The Sony Ericsson W995 is a slider measuring 97.0 x 49.0 x 15.0mm, lovingly finished with a screen bezel and back in brushed metal, giving it an industrial look and feel. This isn't a minimalist handset by any measure: it has chrome detailing on the...

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


Sony has launched a new Walkman mobile phone at Mobile World Congress and Pocket-lint was on hand to give it a quick fumble. But is the phone all that it's cracked up to be and can it be the music phone for you? We grabbed a brief play to find out....

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

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 Review


The Sony Ericsson W995 looks like the Walkman phone we've all been waiting for. Packed with features and a 3.5mm headphone jack, it looks like it could be a winner. Read our review to find out if Sony…

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 W995a review


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.
