A small display

The W980 has a reflective black skin. The external display shows some color, but it won't support photo caller ID. It's also a bit small.

Time for tunes

The W980's music controls are touch-sensitive. They give full access to the music player and the radio without opening the phone.

Picture time

The W980's camera lacks a flash and a self-portrait mirror, which is disappointing for a 3.2-megapixel shooter.
