Is it just me, or does the central play/select button (in the middle of the D-pad that has a play/pause symbol on it) light up only when the walkman function is being used??
The Call and End call symbols also seem to not light up.

Worth noting the latest firmware update adds smile detection to the camera as well as a snazzy built-in "Facebook for Sony Ericsson" app under the Messages section. =)

A pity that GSM Arena did not add the "unboxing" section - I would've been interseted in the memory card that comes with the phone and the headphones given.

using it for a month, the photo quality isn't good - they have noise; also, without lens protection, its likely to get worse :(

Anonymous, 21 Jun 2009w995i n W995 what the diffrent? please tell me thank u..Designation "i" is for international version. Most versions are usually the same except for the bandwidth circuitry which is modified for certain countries.

Surprised to see that since some news reports state the SE is phasing out certain phone designations such as the "i".

"The Sony Ericsson W995 has the highest model number of any Sony Ericsson phone (beating the P990 by a whisker)."
No, Z1010 is higher :)

DrSilverworm, 11 May 2009Why are we still comparing phones with an iPod 2G? Have you guys... morethey only have the ipod in there as a benchmark, to give you an understanding of quality between a phone and then a dedicated audio device

I like the 3.5mm jack and the 8mp camera, superb. I went to the store to maybe get it but changed my mind when i saw it. It looks like a freakin christmas tree or a tranformer on crack, to many wanna be bling bling silver details and buttons which ara astethicly badly placed and ruins the basic colour of the phone. I'll be getting the E72 or Aino.

I just want to know how the keypad fairs, most of the SE slide phones are notorious for having very poor quality keypads that start cracking real soon. What about this one?
