Good: Camera, file storage, lock button, easy of use, best T9 system
Bad: bit bulky
Comment: This is still my favourite phone ever, while my current Galaxy i9000 is an a better phone the W900i was easily the best phone of its era and the most enjoyable phone to use of any since.
Hope manufacturers realise their is more to a phone than a touch screen, useful features such as LED notification and buttons are to a large extent missing from modern designs...
The call quality was the best of any of my phones, better than N95, Samsung i8910, iPhone 4, Samsung i9000!
The text system was the best available at the time I was truly disappointed by Nokia who do not even explain how to use the T9 system propely in the user manual, yet Sony had the best system.
The lock button was great, older handsets which had a permantently visible screens normally required a button hold (delay in opening the handset) or a two button combo. The two button combo on my N95 would be activated in my pocket and the i8910 lock button would be triggered frequently...Galaxy i9000 is more complicated to unlock and therefore more frustrating.
The 2.0mp camera often put the Nokia N95 to shame the product was so well designed I wish they had carried on a long those lines, but they separated the phones into K and W categories afte this and spoiled what was a great thing!
Good: Decent headphones, music player
Bad: Radio... put it in the handset.
Comment: Radio aside, best phone I've owned
Good: Walkman, camera, functions
Bad: Size, flashing LED on the side, software
Comment: The phone is amazing, but I have not yet fully tested the battery life. The phone has amazing features and is awesome to use. The design of the phone is ingenious, with the lock button on the side along with the camera and the Walkman selection buttons
Good: Large internal memory
Bad: Too large. But it is a 3G phone, so it's not that much of a downside
Comment: Great camera and lots of memory, but you can't see what radio station you're listening to
Good: I'm a musician so big memory for music files was a must and this handset certainly delivers and it seems endless.
Bad: No security measures to keep personal pics and vids safe from people who just pick up my handset and browse through my files, unlike some of the latest
Comment: Overall this is the best handset I've ever owned,which may not say much as my last handset was a D500, but I work for a large reputable phone store and of all the handsets I play around on, this one I couldn't put down, the camera is sharper than most 2-megapixel cameras, and of course there's that memory. Sure it's a little on the large side but with me being 6 foot 3 inches it honestly doesn't bother me.
Good: The features are briiliant with good battery life! Excellent camera quality amazing big screen! And Walkman MP3 function
Bad: Nothing disliked about this phone
