I've been using this phone for 4 months.
And to give it a summary, this phone is averagely good and I should be given a rating of 8/10.
1) Sound definitely good
3) Never experienced any lag
4) User friendly
5) Scratch-proof ( I've dropped a couple of times but not even a visible scratch or crack - lol probably made from a tortoise )
6) Price is considerably cheap with its features.
1) Camera is too simple ( yea I know it's a W series )
2) You cant take pictures with your secondary camera
3) The Style-up Cover is not purchasable in the market.
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'.
