Like its predecessor, the Sony Ericsson's Walkman series has a characteristic unique button with icon W. This time round usual Walkman button, and placed under the Call-in line with the C key (Clear). Walkman controls are very easy to be a key player because of navigation; note icon Back, Play / Pause, Next line the navigation left, center and right.
Because this series are mid-low end, settings on the Walkman standard. There is a Play modes (Shuffle, Loop), equalizer (Flat, Bass + +, Treble + +, Classic, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Disco, Vocal, Old-time), stereo widening, Visualisations (Album art, Visualisations, Off), Skins (White skin , Orange skin, Off), and Light effects.
An interesting note, some of the options in the equalizer can be reset. While Light effects, as the name implies, give effect to the keypad backlight when a song is playing.
W395 still include PlayNow, Sony Ericsson default shortcut that allows the download of songs and games from the Sony Ericsson site. If you prefer to browse alone, we can use the WAP browser on the Internet. W395 is only supported EDGE.
Speakers divided 2, above (adjacent to the camera) and below. Volume 2-way on the right body, the top. The resulting voice sounds clear even though set at the highest volume.
On the left menu are listed by default to open the Music. But this is different with the Walkman, for Music Music folder automatically open and play files stored on it. Unlike the Walkman can play song files from a folder that we choose.
W395 also has an FM radio, which normally requires a headset plugged the radio to function. Sony complete with RDS and TrackID. There's automatic signal search; that there is only Set frequency. There are only 9 slots in Channels. But there is a Stereo mode (Turn on Mono, Turn on Stereo) and the speakers on.

Capacity and Connectivity
M2 slot is placed in an unusual place: on the body, near the left corner. Concluding that the color of the casing made him instantly recognizable. 1GB M2 is mounted. Reportedly Sony Ericsson is going to give a bonus of M2 in the package. Port data cable, which at once for chargers and headsets, located on the left body. When connected to a PC with data cable, there is an option Phone mode, PictBridge and Mass storage.
PictBridge lets you print photos directly from your phone to a printer. We tried it by plugging the data cable between phone and printer. While the Mass storage make the phone as storage. When we tried it, the PC read the 2 drives in mobile phones, one from the internal memory and one from M2.
W395 has Bluetooth. It can be used to wear a Bluetooth headset.
Bodi mini and bright colors are perfect for the young, such as Sony Ericssson targeted. They say Sony Ericsson will release this series in 2 colors: Blush Titanium as we receive and Dusky Grey. Though cute, the keypad buttons are quite fitting for the push. Some think that the buttons a bit slippery, especially when sweaty fingers.
