New Sony Ericsson 'a steal for music lovers'

The device could be ideal for music lovers

Those trading in used phones to buy a low-cost, music-focused handset may want to heed the recommendation of a new review for Cnet this week.

According to the site's Frank Lewis, Sony Ericsson has once again added to its Walkman range of branded music phones with a well-equipped device that will be of interest to many in the form of the W395.

One of the reasons he cites for this is the pricing of the handset, which comes in at £48 on pay-as-you-go, free on tariffs of around £20 per month and £110 for the sim-free option.

In addition to this making the device "one of the cheaper handsets in the current Walkman range", Mr Lewis added the W395 is well-built and comes in a casing that is less "plasticky" than that found on some of its competitors.

The two-megapixel camera was found to disappoint, but an FM tuner, up to 4 GB of storage with a compatible memory card and "excellent call quality" are just some of the other functions the reviewer said impressed.

Sony Ericsson's current Walkman line-up also contains higher-spec devices like the W995 and W595.
