I think someone asked about the keys "cracking"
Basically, the keys are really small and fragile. It seems like only the middle parts of each key have a support. So then if u press on them too much, the keys crack. Like, literally, in half. My pound key has a crack in the middle. It works.. but the crack is an eyesore.
jarrad, 20 Nov 2008people say there keypad cracked easly i am thinking of buying the phone so if any one no's how... moreHey Jarrad. If you are a hard out text freak, the keypad will definetly crack in a short time. I don't recommend this phone. You should buy another Sony Ericsson or a Samsung... I don't know what phones are on sale in aussie but here in NZ we sell pretty gay phones... I imported this from China. Has had really been really good for me but I dropped it from my waist(which is 1m) and just broke! It is a really weak phone!! So definitely do not buy this!!!
Oscar, 04 Dec 2008What about the playback sound? Naturally, I supose the speaker is less powerful than a W Seri... moreHey Oscar, I consider you buy a w595. I have a w580, s500 and i had a w595. The w580 and s500 are really weak compared to a w595.
What about the playback sound?
Naturally, I supose the speaker is less powerful than a W Series phone.
But does it sounds loud enough?
I like it's design, but i also want a good sound.
Should I consider any other W Series phone?
does this phone have a sim card??
can it be flashed to criket?
email me back please.
Excellent phone. I am unsure if still available in all areas, but, I had mine for about 1 year and never had 1 problem with it. I received a new work phone and did not need the S500 away to a friend, and I regret it. The new telephone I received, a Samsung, is not even close with features or options. I want my S500 back. =(
i think this phone is a long lasting phone because all phones made by sony ericson is very durable and long lasting use....
never buy this fone for the following reasons
1 its keypad will crack soon
2 12 mb shared memory
3 zoom is not available in snapping a photo
buy the fone for the following reasons
1 it has grt voice quality
2 design,features are nice to sum all in one it is very stylish
my advice dont buy this fone
i have this phone year and a half, and i am very satisfied from it, it works great but i think that need only flashlight:)
Hi all,i would like to ask that does this phone also has a flashlight like K750 which can work as a torchlight as well...i really found this feature useful in K750..so i was wondering if this one has it too.
i'm verry pleased with this phone...mine is perfectly working..i have it for 9 months and i haven't had a problem with it...thid phone is really nice...buy it..you won't be dissapointed ..:))
Emmie, 28 Nov 2008umm.. im thinking of gettin this phone for my birthday but after hearing all this stuff about ... morereally..this phone sucks..keypad will be cracking as tim goes by..i hv 2 friends who used this phone..and unfortunely both of the phone the keypad cracking..dont buy this phone..
I'm using it for more than a year now. yeah! the keypad cracks but mine (the keypad) is still functioning well. I even dropped it on the floor a few times. Its durable!!.. hahahaha. kidding. but seriously, i really dropped it accidentally but its still good. I am still enjoying the features. The video is nice. Almost all formats of video/music can work in this mobile phone. And oh, the mouthpiece is not working now. I have to plug my headset every time i receive calls. so far, thats the only problem i have with my mobile phone.
umm.. im thinking of gettin this phone for my birthday but after hearing all this stuff about the keypad cracking, i'm sorta havin second thoughts. i really wanna know if the "keypad cracking" thing is true cos i really like this phone and i still wanna get but i don't want the keypads to crack.
anyway, if the keypads do break, can u plz tell me if it breaks like after a year or two months??? thnks
