Ok so I just upgraded to this phone. From Samsung a53s.

Obviously the downside is that there is no 5G connectivity. But there seems to be barely any connectivity at all as it's failing any https connections.

Can this be resolved with a software update / custom ROM?

                    I have had lots of phones,but this and the se c905 are the best. Both have great cameras and good battery and wifi. Also you can pick up one on auction sites fairly cheap.

                      i first saw the w995 at a store and fell in love w/ it.
                      The problem was it was way too expensive its price before was crazy as its price before was comparable to a new GS3 couldn't afford it, but still looking at it on a store, until the price mark down. Still way expensive. Until finally i saw a 2nd hand of it at a pawnshop man,talk about dreams do come true and i have my w995 still working like a charm its almost 1 year w/ me now.The time i bought it it was in good mint condition, too bad i was a bit rough on handling it, it got a nasty scratch when i fell off and its cover hit the rough cement, i had it fell off a lot of times, the W sign fell off. but still it did'nt let me down. Although is it me or there are times that the WALKMAN feature just pop out of nowhere when you ht a certain button or position just asking if some you do have too?

                        I am using Sony ericson P990i phone since 2006. I really like it's call divert feature by which I can get the option of getting calls of my contact index only. My phone divert the call from a number which is not present in my index. I want to change my phone now but I want my new phone with the above mentioned feature.Does this model of Sony ericson comes with such option?

                                Pros: decent camera + flash, nice feel and look, study build (dropped it a couple times with no dents or scratches at all) bright screen, walkman player, kickstand, and most important for someone who listens to music all the time: the additional 3.5 headphone jack at the top of the phone (Sony Ericsson has been known to be lacking in this feature in the past)

                                Cons: battery life, battery cover falls off all the time (perhaps it has to do with the fact that it gets messed around in my pocket, however the cover lock could be better so that it doesn't come off as easily)

                                        Hi,

                                        W995 is an excellent Walkman phone but I am not satisfied with camera quality.
                                        Even though 8.1 MP, 3264x2448 pixels is there I am not getting good quality image. If I zoom the image a little the quality goes bad. Any suggestion to improve image quality ?,Plz help me
