Sony Ericsson W395

The W395 added the Sony Ericsson walkman series to a low slider that goes for 169 euro without contract over the counter. The Quad band model available in titanium or delicate purple tone is properly processed, the numeric keypad embedded in the housing plan however suffer from a slightly spongy pressure point.

Besides manages the control without any problems, thanks to the logical menu structure and fast operating speed.

Looking at the list of equipment shows where the red pencil is set with the W395. So, the slider has although almost all important functions on board, but partly in considerably bedraggled form. One looks in vain search for the calendar about, and also the data synchronization with the PC was not possible when both test devices of the W395.

The slider in the General facilities so only partially convinced, he was in his element at the Soundcheck: the music player is launched from its own button on the front of the device and boasts an equalizer, the display of transcoder, visualizations and the program TrackID, songs can be determined with the.

The W395 unfortunately not bring separate player buttons. Also the very good sounding headset HPM-55 is in addition to the 1 GB large memory card with the box. No wonder, then, that the W395 can let other headsets sound far behind.

A similar good picture gave the Sony Ericsson in the laboratory. Here, especially the very good performance in the transmission and reception properties could please. Also the good acoustics and the more than ordinary endurance values did to convince.
