I've got this phone since december 2012 and I'm not planning to switch it with another anytime soon (and we are already in mid march 2015 ) simply because it is great. Does his job flawlesly, still has solid good mid range specifications ( 3 years now after it was announced ) and also had a very attractive price tag. Not to mention his great design.
Imo it is one of the best smartphones ever in terms of specifications/price.

It's a really good phone,I used it 2 years and it worked beautiful but the small capacity battery was annoying.

So I think the next one will be a G2 mini, which has approximately the same spec (moreover, the same dismensions, which is pretty rare in nowadays..).
What do you think of this one ? Did you find yours ?

It'a very nice phone, the design is very stylish, looks both modern and serious. Have had it for 2 years and no serious problems. After 2 years the silver paint from the bottom started to peel off, but I haven't been really careful with it :) Now looking for something more performant.

So, very happy user for nearly 2 years now - but it's time for an upgrade.

Question is : what to buy next ? The S500 is a great size, I don't really want to go over 5" screen size, would like a >8MP camera and want something that feels like a phone and looks good - i.e. premium build quality and design.

Handled a Galaxy Alpha in store today, looks fantastic but feels like a childs toy. Z3 compact is better from a build quality perspective but I don't like the design.

Ideas ? The choice seems to be so bad that I'm even thinking Lumia at this point :-P

great until you use it for 6 months, then the charger port breaks, it wont charge, wont hold charge, slows to a near halt and runs out of memory filled by mysterious unknown and invisible things that take up space and memory but dont exist. i have no memory and nothing on my phone, ive deleted photos, music, messages and no more memory on my phone. how do i sum up the s500 in one word, pathetic.

Great phone. Could have done with a stronger battery though, as it seems to consume a lot of energy.
