i am the proud owner of S500i. the plus are good sound quality, the clarity of the camera,et al. what disappointed me was the absence of FM radio. So i would hereby appeal the makers of the phone to try out something to attach a camera to the said phone.
an original phone wont make a difference. i got the W580i for chrstmas. from cingular. not off of ebay or any other dealer. it's been almost 3 weeks and so far i have 4 cracked buttons. ill admit, i do text ALOT. a little over 1000 messages per day. but still. its annoying.
omg how gay...wat do u mean get a real fone??? I am a dealer n my keys have cracked 2wice after sending it away... we dont swap the keypads thats jus gay... lol wats the point???
I got s500 for christmas.it is working very well.the only major negative for me is that it has no radio.
Yo!!! Those people who are getting cracks on their keys and or bluetooths not working...I have only one comment lol ! Get an original phone! Not AP(which dealers usually swaps the insides with something cheaper)! My friend has one and the key's are perfect! Everything else works just great! Just get the pure original phone and it will be orite...
ps: Or maybe ur just pressing the buttons too hard =x! Dont rough it up xD! Just love it peace~
ive just buy this phone about one month.muzic,picture..there all awesome..but the problem is the start to crack..i feel sad about it..but anyway..i really enjoy having this phone..:)
The keys and numbers will all crack, although the light from the screen and background still shines through, so it does not look that bad. Other than that, be careful not to take it apart..it is nearly impossible to repair it 100% --I suggest not.
Be also careful with the sim-card slot--it is extremely sensitive.
I have this phone..and had it since summer. Its been greaat! I have had no complications what so ever. It is a simple phone, and beautifuly designed. Sony Ericsson phones are designed for their simplicity where nothing is complicated; the menu is well designed, the games are brain-teasers and fun, and it does not slow down..no matter how full the memory.
i've got the s500 for christmas.. the phone looks gorgeus, everything is working fine. the batt life is good (it lasts 5,6 days)..the keys are not cracking (for now).
the camera it's great, the pics are just fantastic!
I bought this phone last week,for those who have passion for fashion this phone is definitely a must in line,the camera features has better quality than K8OOi which has 3.2MP which sounds wierd coz its 3.2MP but S500i has much better quality especialy in the color saturation.The bad news is that when I bought this phone few days I had used it,I realize it hangs when you try to navigate the phone.THough I love this,but I tried to bring it back to the shop and replace it instead with K800i..Though K800i has xenon flash,it still cant replace the fashion style,especialy with the flash theme this S500 is using..So for those who plan buying phones try to read the specifications and if possible try the phones you had choose and compare them before you decide.CHoose WIsely at the end of it..You wanted to have the best that you deserve..Good Luck
i love this phone. it looks cool and sleek and elegant. when i first bought it, it was absolutely gorgeous and i took great care not to scratch it or drop it but then the nightmare came~~ the kypad buttons started to crack one by one. it was horrible!! note to other people, buy the other colours, don't buy the black colour.
i have this phone in the green its like a heaps good phone except when i connect it to the computer its stuffed and i cant put stuff on it anymore also the top 3 keys have a crack in the middle of them but its hardly noticable also i took the back of off it and i cant get it back on properly so it always falls off, other than that its a really good phone with heaps of special features and i'd recommend you get it if you're looking for a phone.
It doesn't lag and i heard that u can use the 4g card too :)
The phone comes like the rest of the phones with his own screen protector and i think u can order one on the internet.
On the site there are pictures taken with the phone, go to http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_s500-review-184p4.php and have a look.
Too bad that it doesn't have a flash and autofocus :(.
