I purchased this phone within days it was launched in India and have been usign this for for more than a month and this time is sufficent for me draw conclusions and review it.
First impressions first. It looks good, is very slim, extremely light, very colourful display and themes, the camera pictures have nice saturation and colours, smart walkman software, higher resolution in the same screen size segment. and most imporatnatly, being an internet phone, its HSDPA (speed upto 3.6Mbps) Compatible - when 3G is launched in India that is.
But this is something people can read and see.
Here is what I have found amongst what is not mentioned.
1. I am a slightly disappointed with the sound. Even tough I was not expecting a sound quality of a walkman earphone, the clarity and volumes still need something to be desired. Same is the case with the volume of the speaker, the speaker hidden beneath the back cover, so the sound is a bit suppressed. One cant expect super quality for all frequencies of sound. This phone doesnt sound like a Sony Ericsson but a Nokia with a bit low volume.
2. Review says that this phone has an improved browser. Guys that is to fool you. Its supposed to be a young generation HSDPA compatible Internet-phone. but that browser is of no use at all. Although the normal interface is improved, but still the speed with it pulls up webpages is pain-staking. The run around - install the Opera Mini and get crusing speeds and amazing interface! Thanks to Opera.
The ones who are looking for an internet experience on the phone can invest more and go for a larger screen, for better visibility. I am falirly satisfied screen size I have got for this amount.
3. The clour saturation is amazing - It has an advanced camera software provideing shooting in different modes, 2MP camera, so one gets a few clear images. Whats striking is the colours from the camera - especailly the red, brown, orange hues come out beautifully!
Overall, this is not the one for the ones looking after music (go for a better walky phone) but the ones who are looking for all the decent features at a good enough price. Its more made for the poeple who wont keep chnaging there phones every now and then. I have taken the phone, investing in the HSDPA feature for the future. I hope as the 3G spectrum goes live in India, my subscriber will be able to provide a broadband speed internet on my PC.
Overall a thumbs up to this phone.

i've got g 502 on last week, actualy its briliant, wide screen, no scroll button. finaly its a briliant phone
Its a wonderful phone. The web browser is really cool, and so is media player (Walkman 3.0). SE has done wonders with d display on its new phones, camera cud have been better, but all in all good value for money !!
I tested phone in shop in Germany. Display also got dark during UMTS internet browsing and keypad light on. No restart possible. Perhaps a kind of internal storage problem.
But display excellent.
Hey guys.. I bought G502 about 20 days back.. and its really cool.. but the phone often restarts or the display goes off and the keypad light stays on.. any solution to this problem??
i just bought this phone 2 days ago and this sucks. don't go for it. no network at all
Great SE G502 Review on mobiset!
I just bought it and the phone looks much better in real life then in the pics here.
To answer the below quaestion: I received head phones & books. I don't think you got cheated.
Hi Guys, all said that the phone is n't good. But i m intersted to go 4 the same. Plz say me about picture clarity n sound.
Is G502 has no usb cable,cd and mem card in a set box? Is it true? Or the retailer cheated the customers.
What about video recording? Is it 320x240 mp4 resolution? And where is loudspeaker?
Will like to try G502 fon but i heared that, mem. card and USB, r not provided by the package..? Is true?
