This phone is alright but battery life is very average as others have mentioned. The other big issue is the menu system and navigating the phone, it is VERY VERY laggy, slow and takes too long to catch up to what I have pressed.
Have even updated the software on the phone, this made no difference at all. Overall a little disappointed with this model.
Is anyone else having slow/laggy problems?
can any body teach me hor to install antivirus aplication to this phone using PC suite??
Can we take a picture fron the front camera?
Im planning to buy this phone, how much that it cost now in the Phils.?
Got my w508 just last week. I got the white one. It is a wonderful phone, works just as great as my old w850i. Recommended!
i have bought that one 4 days ago
and here is my opinion:
sound ultra good spicialy at the new headset
camera is exellent
battery is low performance maximum 1.5 days :(
very fast update
I have a lot of problems with this phone, I already sended the phone back to the factory twice, but I still have the same problem... after a time i can't get any messages anymore (even if my inbox is empty), sending messages is also a problem! I'm very disapointed
fantastic,resolution of camera is good compared with other mobile is v.good
can someone tell me what languages avaible in this phone???

Anonymous, 11 May 2010so are u saying we should update the s/w from the web and not from the phone??Yes from the website.
I have tried to update the software but it is said that my phone has the latest software (and I dont reinstall the software), but still my few weeks new phone only last about 2 days or so. Should I reinstall or I should wait the next new sofware?
Some say that the radio is the culprit: when turned on it stays on, and the phone should be master resetted to turn the radio off (dont know: reset setting or reset all).
But I do love my w508, although its text input in SMS is quite poor. I hope Sony Ericsson do something about this...
Has it got the wee display that shows you the next letter/number for a key as you type in Ab mode? eg 3def. Like on the W350. It's for old people who aren't sure how many 'clicks' to do before you get to,say the '&' or the 'z'.

You'll find the software update on the site of Sony-ericcson.
the only problem is if u flip it fast the message insert sim will appear. same like w300i
Satisfied with all but the battery performance. It drains up only for one day normal use (3 calls, 10 sms, surfing web
I bought this about a week ago from Amazon, excellent cellphone is all I can say. I considered the Z550a I was using before a masterpiece, but the W508 is even better. The phone has a slick design and it's very lightweight and low profile. The Z550a was slightly bulky in comparison.
I get no signal problems and battery lasts for about 5 days with normal use. I have a Sony Ericsson HBHDS980 Stereo Bluetooth Headset that goes with it. With music heavy streaming I can use it for a whole day before it needs recharge.
The headset is feature rich and I have mostly explored the music features and they all work really well. The SensMe feature is just awesome because I don't always feel like selecting 30 to 40 music tracks to listen, with SensMe the player does it for me according to my mood. The phone has superb voice quality and can ring loudly.
The only complain is the external display doesn't show the clock permanently like the Z550 did. I wish I didn't had to open it to look at the clock or press the volume control on the side to make it show the time. Perhaps a feature coming with a new firmware.
Another minor complaint is that the vibration is rather weak, again compared to the Z550a. But I can still feel the phone ringing, I'll have to see if I can feel the phone ringing on my pocket when in a loud place.
This is by far the best phone I've ever had. The only thing that would make it better is if it had WiFi.
