Anyone who gets this phone should know about this phone's horrible keypad quality.
My keypad had a crack just after two weeks of usage.
I'm definitely very disappointed at materials Sony Ericsson used on this otherwise beautiful phone.
Any this incident I had isn't an isolated incident. Google "Sony Ericsson S500 keypad crack" and you'll find a bunch of hits.

Could someone tell me about the battery life? Is it THAT bad? I'm thinking of getting this phone. its just so pretty!
Does anyone know what the difference between the "TIM" brnded phones and the unbranded phones are?
If there's any Singaporeans wanting to buy this phone (in black, for yellow Im not too sure).
Please hold back, wait till after Sep then decide...
Cos today I went to my frend's shop to order this phone, but he warned me not to get it cos they sent the whole lot back to the manufacturer for repair... Due to that the software might have prob.
This phone is awesome in every way. Though like ppl said, only issue is the battery cover, i had such a hard time taking it out, i think i messed up the slider in the process, now when the phone is slided in, the top is kinda pushed upwards which made a gap between the 2 piece.. . it feels kinda crappy messing it up first day... so becareful guys

I got my s500 4 days ago and today i'm going back to the store to replace it for a second time.The first one had a problem with the camera,all the pics had vertical lines and the videos after 20seconds were getting green!!! The second s500 i got had a also a problem with its camera(green sades everywere) and also when i slide it open was very loose.Even the technician advised me to buy something else.Both of the s500 i've tried were from week 24 .I wish there was another mobile that i would like it so i woulden't change my s500 for another one again.I thing i will go for a nokia instead
Awesome! I think this phone is great. superb lighting and screen illuminations. Sound quality pretty good too. only thing missing really is the flash that should come with the 2 mega pixels apart from that this phone is great.!
I also ask if this phone has t9. I have always texted with that and it would be hard to do it any other way. So does anyone know?
The screen is 240x320, different with K750i.
Anyway.. I must add here. Even tho it's not 16M screen, excluding the color shading (262k vs 16M), the screen is definitely the best so far in the market.
SUPERB SCREEN! really bright.. brighter than Samsung U600. WOW. really vibrant colors. perfect screen illumination. perfect brightness. perfect contrast. perfect color balance.
so far.. DEFINITELY the best display from SE. the best display i've ever seen (despite the fact it's not 16M colors).
