Sony Ericsson W995
Advantages: very easy and intuitive to use, good screen, camera excellent for mobile phone
Disadvantages: not a smart phone
My friend gave me this phone about 6 months ago - he'd bought a smart phone and no longer needed it. What a win...I absolutely love it! And so had my friend - he told me he'd agonised over the decision of upgrading from it because (in his words) 'I love the W995 and I thought it might be my phone for life'.
So what is there to like about the w995?
Firstly, it is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Sony Ericsson are excellent in this department; navigating around the phone's menus and using their predictive texting is very easy to do. Setting alarms, using the calendar and notes section are also a breeze.
Texts can be arranged as a 'conversation' by sender, meaning you can easily scroll back through all the messages to/from a contact.
The phone is a handy size. It's big enough to make allow for a decent screen, for watching back videos and viewing your pictures etc. While also small and light enough to fit in a pocket. The fact that it is a sliding phone means that the screen can be large for the overall size, because the keypad is tucked away until in use.
Weirdly enough, the buttons are actually one of my favourite things about this phone! They are really smooth and give no discomfort for if you end up doing a lot of texting. I don't know how to describe it, they've just got the buttons right!
At 8.1 megapixels, the camera on this phone is far above your average mobile camera, and I've been really pleased with some of the results I've got. It's good to know as well that you can take decent enough videos on your phone should anything eventful occur.
Obviously a big feauture of the phone is the walkman music centre. As I tend to always carry an mp3 player I don't use this as much as I'm sure a lot of people do, but I can vouch that it is easy to use and that the song quality is very good for a mobile phone.
Overall, I have not been at all disappointed with this phone.
Summary: This phone is very well designed and easy to use
