Sony Ericsson W595
Advantages: Music player is easy to use and good volume, long battery life, decent camera
Disadvantages: Difficult to press keys, only two themes, can be tricky to use
I have had the Sony Ericsson W595 for about 3 months, however my brother passed it onto me since my last phone broke so overall it has been in use for around 2 years. When he gave it to me, the number keys were very stiff which made it very difficult to press the keys for typing texts. I often find it quite difficult to change certain settings on the phone such as the display settings and I'm fairly sure you can't choose your own personal background but instead use one of two themes. This is only a very small issue and one you can live with. There is a 3.2 Mega pixel integrated camera which takes fairly standard images, and I am yet to work out how to upload them onto my computer. This links into how it is not very easy to use for slightly more technical issues.
The Sony Ericsson is in the Walkman range and therefore it has a large capacity for storing music and a fantastic music player. The sound quality is very good and the phone has a high volume. There is a bluetooth function integrated in the phone which makes transferring songs from one phone to another very easy. This is currently the only method of getting music at the moment as I cannot seem to download music from my laptop. This is possibly my own fault as I didn't have the instructions manual given to me. Therefore I am trying not to be too critical about me finding the phone slightly difficult to use.
There is a multiple text option which allows you to text one message to as many people in your contacts list as you wish which I find very useful. The speaker volume is very good and the microphone is very clear so calling people is nice and simple, the loud speaker is just that--very loud which is perfect for allowing groups of people to listen to the conversation. The battery charges very quickly and I find it lasts me a while, but that is because I only use it for texts and phone calls and occasionally listening to music.
Overall, I would recommend this product to somebody who wishes to play music on their mobile, both outloud as well as through earphones and doesn't want to pay too much money for this ability.
Summary: Good to use for simple calls, texts, listening to music but gets complicated using some applications
