Sony Ericsson W950 review: Let the music play

16 October 2006
The Sony Ericsson W950 is an exciting new addition to the Walkman series of Sony Ericsson. It is a smartphone based on the Symbian 9.1 UIQ 3.0 with a stylish and yet classical design. Although it doesn’t feature a camera, the 4GB of free space and the dedicated multimedia keys would make any music lover jump from joy. The large touchscreen TFT display with QVGA resolution is just another fascinating feature for the tech buffs.

I just got mine 2 days ago and I've fallen in love with it. It does a lot of things. It does help to be tech savy when trying to use all these features. I don't regret it one bit. I also found mine new on ebay for 254$.

everything u say is ok,
but can you see future that phones will come with more more than 4gb HDD or even memory stick, but your phone still can't get a picture like a Nokia 8800?! i think the money is a bit high for the phone, but a little high ;)

i work for a phone company in australia and have just had a chance to play with this phone. all i've got to say is WOW! awesome music capabilities, great ease of use all wrapped up in a fab looking package. Sure it doesn't have a camera but i have a SE K800 and i hardly use the camera on that despite knowing how awesome the pics are from it. i think i'll definately get this phone, as it has all i need in the one device - MP3 player, organiser and phone! I was just reading the comments about the phone and I felt I have to say something about Steve Ashford's comments - I believe they are really rude and insulting to a lot of people. Sure, you might want a phone that has all the features you want (2MP camera, Wi-Fi etc) but obviously this phone doesn't have them, so don't buy it?! And don't insult people by calling them losers and hypochondriacs because they like the phone! The reason there is so much choice in the telecommunications industry is because not everyone likes the same phone, and are looking for different features. Research what you like and buy accordingly. Each to their own I say!

Having had my w950 for 3wks now i thought i'd just let you know that its just what i wanted and i'd highly reccomend it if you don't want to be carrying an mp3 player and a phone plus you don't care about not having a camera(which i don't).
Got a cheap clear plastic case to stop it getting scratched which is well worth getting, only tip is don't loose the plastic pen as sony charge $15 for 3 replacement ones so using whatever comes to hand at moment(pencil/pen end).
Just got the bluetooth sony headset so no need for the cable, seems to work well.
Any questions let me know.
