Splashed with Walkman branding, the W395 is one of the budget wannabes in Sony Ericsson's music mobile line-up rather than one of its top-of-the-bill acts.
Pitched at a wallet-soothing £70, it makes a play for the cash-conscious music phone buyer with a low-key features line-up – fronted up by the tune-playing pull of that Walkman label.
This model, though, is more of a straight-ahead sliderphone design, with the prominent stereo speakers on the back the main eye-catcher for its target youth market buyer.
While it lacks 3G connectivity, the W395 has the essentials for an entry level handset – a 2-megapixel camera, an FM radio to go with the music player, email support and video clip watching capability, plus a mobile internet browser.
That Walkman branding, though, does promise a bit more punch in the music department than the average down-range mobile.
So how much should you really expect from a low-budget Walkman music phone?
