Sony Ericsson W960 review: Walkman extreme

09 October 2007
Sony Ericsson W960 is aptly the big gun in the Sony Ericsson portfolio of music-centered handsets. Gifted with the scorching 8GB of storage space and a large touchscreen TFT display, a 3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities, the W960 easily stands...

I don't know why you all are comparing this phone with others. This phone have touch screen so in no way it can be compared and it is better than any other handset. Touch screen matters!

I just want to reply to the comment posted below which says "this is no good for this price".
I guess you are just foloowing the world saying "I love music".
See the sound quality on full pitch, it never bursts, like in most other hansets and with earphones, it is so refined and soothing that no other set can provide.
If you are so much specific about music and camera, buy an iPod and go for a digi cam.

I am simply in love with this phone, trendy to carry, light weight and powerful. iPhone stands far behind.

I have this phone and I am serious about music listening.

The sound quality is no different from my w800.

Phone is too quite, it quiter than my w800 playing the exact same sound file.

There is NO USER EQ anymore!!!!!!

The megabass is just one option and can't be used with the other presets.

The walkman is shite to sum up... a waste.

The camera and video recorder are really bad for the money...def no better than any of the w basic series.

also Sony still can't write driver and software to save there lives.

Good points...The hand writing recon works almost perfectly.

Transfer speeds are stupidly fast in tranfer mode.

The screen and icons are much sexier than Nokia's...think apple vs pc lol. But I'm guessing most of us don't go on looks right.

This could be a great phone if the the walkman was worth the money...but is no better than than the old w800, infact it is worse because it has no user eq and is far too quite for serioyus listening :(

I am going to send mine back and maybe go for a n95 8gb and buy a sony dedicated walkman, my girlfriend has a 8gb which is load has two user eq's and kills the ipod on sound quality, but guess what sony cock it up again because it's transfer speeds are a joke.

Sony you make great sounding useless stuff.
