just got this phone yesterday its sweet so far i have many themes on it all downloaded looking for a way to get free games if neone knows please let me know because i dun want to use the phones web browser because its very costly... but other then that keypad seems stiff first thing i did was push around as hard as i could before i bought it and ill keep everyone posted if nething happens...
Does the phone have a speaker? Loud enough to be able to talk e.g. on a concert?
i lovv this phone but when i first slided the phone it came off so i have2 bits of the phone, thefront nd the back my lighting and keys are great so get it its fab!!!!!
its worth it deff.
yes the buttons crack too easily...
so i was looking around if there were button replacements and i was wondering if the 'silver keypad' was stronger or is it just the same as the green?
its on this site:
had this phone about 2 months for now, nothing's wrong with it and i have no problems with the keypad at all, i make about 40 to 50 sms per day, and my keypad is still working fine, maybe the ones with cracked keypads are the first batch of s500, i dont know, just my personal opinion, maybe people who love this phone can wait for the 4th of 5th batch since every 1st batch of new phones always have problems. For SE lovers, try to have patient and wait for the 2nd batch and onwards phone, its more improved.
Dino poblems with your memory card are because its a nock off... many SE owners have the same problem with hk rip offs. as for the lighting issue? i've not had a problem with any keypad illumination at all! i have got cracked keys and my phone was made in week 40, i have now bought a silver keypad online and switched them over... looked even better now! now more cracked keys for me!
note the yellow/silver version does not crack as far as i know.
Okay, it's time for a 3 month review...
i have a week 31 black/green edition.
- yes the key pad still cracks after week 28. all my keys are cracked
- the light on the left side does not work anymore. it doesnt light up at all
- the top left "call" button does not work anymore. no matter how hard i press, nothing happens.
- the face plate scratches very easily.
- slider feels very flimsy when open.
- software problems, such as freezing, and the M2 suddenly not being recognized (while phone is on)
- no flash (or led at all for camera) and no mirror
- does attract attention
- good sound quality
- easy to use PC - phone software
*i have never dropped the phone and i still encounter these problems*
love the phone!!
looks really swish.
but have had it for not even 1 day !
and the 1 key has fallen off!
yes..it is true..all my keypad are crack.only the * n 0 key does not crack..damn it!! i bought it during 1st launch..huwa...
Does anybody use the Contrasted Copper (white) version? How's its keypad? Does it crack too?
SWEET!! my fone is in service now getting buttons fixed... seeing as you are in the business, where do u get the different coloured keypads??? and r they reliable?? or are they cheap n nasty n crack??
x x x
tis phone personally i fell in love with the desgin at first sight. almost bought it when the person told me the key would crack easily . looks like its really true.
i have the s500 and personally i don't think it's all that special. the functions of the phone, i think are just maybe a bit better than a basic phone, but there's not much to be wow-ing over. the camera's also a little annoying because it doesn't have that mirror thing at the back, so that you could take pictures of you and your friends without having someone to stay out of the picture to be the photographer.
i had this phone when it first came out for a few days, when a total of five of the keys cracked. i just wanted to warn you guys, if you are thinking about the w580 as a replacement *i have this one rite now* after having it for 2 months, my key cracked and now the top of the memory slot won't close...so if you dont' want to go through this hassle again don't check out the w580i either..
Are there better keypads and if my pads breack how much is it to cost me Australian?
I like the looks the only bad thing is the internal memory
Have a look at the video its funny the back dosnt come off :)
this phone has a lot of problems not just the buttons cracking but software wise as well.. the phone periodically freezes and shuts down by it self without any reason, even at full charged battery.. i am very disappointed with SE in this model and now the problem continues to get worse. Im not sure if any of you has had this problem but now the screen discolors on its own and glitches. Maybe se should stop manufacturing their phones in china and should now start building them in japan or some other reliable facility.
the problems with the keyboard are fixed people, just believe me i'm in the business, you can buy any colour you like, no more cracks! its a very nice phone!
