Not to mention the i999, which is the best phone I ever owned (and I have owned a lot). Sleek, glass and metall, good battery, perfect camera and so on. I do not understand why gsm Arena is so outdated in what concerns the new models, because there are a lot of them. They only support the big players probably. But there are still who prefer to stand out from the crowd...

would just recommend a very similar Phone to this one, also made by Philips which is not on GSMArena and it is model i908 - Amazing phone. I bought it in October 2014. It has been working well and battery is really great. Visibility in sunlight is also very good. We know that many phones suffer in this regard but this i908 does good job. It has weight of 155 grams. Very elegant. For further details, check yourself for its specification. Highly recommended!

This is my first ever smart phone at at age of 29! I never needed one before. So I took my time, researched the market and decided that for the price the w8555 offered the best spec. So I bought it 1 week ago and so far so good! I love this phone, the processor feels super fast, the camera is awesome 13mp WTF!! And the battery is exceptional. I spend the whole day on the net, listening to music, using viber & vk and sometimes even watch a full movie and it still lasts the day. For casual use it is good for at least 2 days. Of course, battery life was one of the most important things to me, but when you consider the full package and the pricr , just 13000r, I think it is hard to find a better deal on the market at the moment! This phone is awesome, I would reccomend it!

I had it, very good phone but only one big issue. At wake up(when you want to unlock the screen) the touch goes crazy!!! Making ghost touch every where and if you manage to unlock it will start to on app. After some minutes everything will go normal. THE PROBLEM IS ONLY AFTER WAKE UP!! NOT POWER UP.
I don't think it's a touch hardware issue or it will do it always while using it, It's annoying when you have to pick up a call and the touch start by passing the calls or pressing mute stuff while answering.
I both it in Russia after searching it for a while and I thought the cold weather could be the reason, but taking it home at 22°C the issue is still there.
If it's not for the screen wake up/unlock issue, this phone is a fantastic deal for the price. I will be travelling again to Russia, might take the same phone again or go for the W8560. For now only Philips is giving such specs,battery, dual-S,HD res in this form factor. I WILL CROSS MY FINGERS :-D

Seriously cannot find a single website where it can be purchased from ....

The battery is exceptional, it takes 2 days to run out of battery. I test phones for a living and non other device give me that battery efficiency.

good specs, but what happened to the fm radio for which philips is famous for?

  • AnonD-77322

With such specs and a good price they can definitely compete, and will of course have success, companies usually fail when they go Apple, never do that Phillips or you will go down the same way you came.

  • Philips User

The weight is 158 grs... same as W8560 (data sheet with 200 Grs is wrong info).

  • joul

Finally philips.. see the brand below the earpiece, more elegant
