Are you tired of juggling between your digital media player and your cell phone? Sony Ericsson's unlocked W508 is the solution, wherein it integrates a Walkman media player with a twist, wherein instead of pressing buttons, you can mute an incoming call or snooze the alarm by simply sweeping your hand over the phone with Gesture Control, and if you want to shuffle, skip, and adjust the volume you can simply move your phone in different directions with the Shake Control. It even features TrackID so you no longer have to guess what song is being played. Also if you upload photos directly from your phone, you will love the Picture Editor feature, which allows you to modify the photo you have taken with the impressive 3.15 MP camera.

I bought this about a week ago from Amazon, excellent cellphone is all I can say. I considered the Z550a I was using before a masterpiece, but the W508a is even better. The phone has a slick design and it's very lightweight and low profile. The Z550a was slightly bulky in comparison.
I get no signal problems and battery lasts for about 5 days with normal use. I have a Sony Ericsson HBHDS980 Stereo Bluetooth Headset that goes with it. With music heavy streaming I can use it for a whole day before it needs recharge.
The headset is feature rich and I have mostly explored the music features and they all work really well. The SensMe feature is just awesome because I don't always feel like selecting 30 to 40 music tracks to listen, with SensMe the player does it for me according to my mood. The phone has superb voice quality and can ring loudly.
The only complain is the external display doesn't show the clock permanently like the Z550 did. I wish I didn't...
This is a pone very hard to find in the comercial market. I have used it for 6 years and lost mine. I am very glad I found this one in very good condition. delivery was on time. I am very satisfied.
I am satisfied with the mobile phone NOT damages during delivery
