So BIG UPS to the manufacterers in asia who made this phone, So comon you guys @ lest appreciate it, if not, then don't own a phone cause we don't wana hear your whinging!!!

Only older version ..031. You also need valid CDA string for version R1FA035 ! In my case flashing G502 for central Europe should be done, but I do not know this valid CDA string for upgrading. If anyone can help please help. You make me happy. Thanks.

The quality of the body of G502 does not seem to be good. The plastic looks fine but not at all strong. If you drop it hard on a surface, you will end up with a broken display panel (inside). This is for SE G502 made in China. I am not sure about the product from other countries.

I bought this mobile 6 months ago.I got fedup with the restart problem .Its often restarting suddenly (Even while on calls as well).I have took it to the service center.They have upgraded the software.But still the problem is not solved yet....I donno.I agree that the cam quality and sound quality is good.
My almost new G502 restarts automatically at times when I switch between menus. I don't think the quality is good. Also, the sound quality and camera quality are not good. Better look for alternatives.

Oh.. I too feel the same. Please think of service too before you buy your next mobile - (if it is SE)
My G502 suddenly developed a white mark on it display panel. After few days, the speaker has stopped working. When I took it to Authorized Service Center Accel Front Line Ernakulam, they said it caould not be repaierd under warranty. I am moving to Consumer Court. If you are buying this phone or any SE mobile in India, service could be a problem.
