Meet Chicsy my music monster

She’s the one who’s wearing the music monster

Sony Ericsson W595 Walkman phone


This phone is one of the slimmest I’d used for quite a long time. Just strangely my eyes seem to have fixed more on the phone features than the physical size of phones. In the past, the slimness and size matters more to me when I choose my phone. But now, what’s inside that matters. And boy! This slim babe has got quite a powerful inside that blew me away!


Comes with a 3.2MP camera that takes decent photos. But that’s not the point. This is a Walkman phone! If you need a camera phone, try the Samsung Innov8 or Sony Ericsson C905 instead! The W595 is a freaking awesome Walkman phone!


See this speaker? It has got two of this on either sides (top and bottom) of the phone. And the loudness of it will blow your ears away, especially since its coming out from such a small thing. These Stereo speakers gives good quality sound for your entertainment needs while you’re at home or in the enclosed chalet. But please avoid using it while you’re in public especially in the bus and train! That’s call noise pollution! Thanks for your kind cooperations!


One thing that I think I’m not quite happy with is the stiff and tiny keypads. I’m guessing the target audience for this phone are the school kids who has smaller fingers. If I were to use this phone to send an SMS out, I’ll probably suffer from cramps in my fingers. Too tiny for me.


Look what I discovered behind the slider. Usually people do not pay attention to what’s less seen, the behind of your slider phone. But I like the little details that’s added at the back. Perhaps it’ll bring a smile to whoever’s looking into the camera lens while you taking a picture.


If you ever run out of music to play on your Walkman phone, or needs something fresh from the charts for your collection, you can sample, purchase and download tunes right from the phone! With a 3G connection of course! (I’ll recommend the Singtel Mobile Broadband if you’re considering one. Personally I’m using it. And it loads faster than my Starhub one. Ya! I’ve got both! Don’t ask! It’s silly I know!)

I did few test shots with the 3.2MP camera around my house and here’s what I got…

(Yes those are lottery tickets on my table! Who doesn’t wish they’ll get lucky and strike some wins? Especially for a 101% broke girl like me.)


Overall experience with the Sony Ericsson W595 was a love-hate situation. It’s so small and slim that I could hardly feel it in my pocket. And the audio feature is cool. And yes!! The games! Boy if only the buttons were bigger! I would have cleared many more rounds on the Guitar Rock Tour game! For those who has unlimited 3G data plan, you’ll also be able to enjoy youtube videos anywhere anytime with stereo sound quality on the W595. That’s how I spent most of my time with this phone! Watching youtube videos on the go!

Wow! I hope you’ve been reading my experience with the slim music monster! Cause that will surely help you to get this…


so that you can join me on 22 November to catch them

and them!
