The phone weighs a total of 112 grams which makes the W950i feel solid & provides a high quality feel to the handset. The phone package comes with a complete Walkman® music kit which includes a stereo headset, music management software & a USB cable. The W950i is from the same family as the Sony Ericsson W800i & the Sony Ericsson W810i but all of the phones have their own unique style & independent features.The W950i come with a large 262k colour touch screen (240 x 320 pixels) which provides the user with the perfect display & the use of the touch screen is an easy way to select menu options. The user will enjoy using the touch screen & find it an extremely user friendly way to manoeuvre around the phones menus. The keypad is very stylish as the keys are totally flush with the handsets surface which is very smooth & simple to use.
