  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for about 2 years and I still feel it is still in fashion and it doesn't look old at all. I think the buttons are very easy to press and the phone itself is very compact. Although the internet is very expensive, i don't need to use it that often but you can get a free email service which is ded good.
  • Pros: cool look, available internet
  • Cons: can't have polyphonic ring tones

Samsung N500 - an excellent basic phone

  • Excerpt: I have used the Samsung SGH-N500 occasionally for a year or so now, it was originally purchased on eBay (locked to o2) for the bargain price of £50. When it was being sold it retailed for between 60-120, I doubt you'll find it around new anymore having been superseded by the new C100 (similar but colour screen).
  • Pros: Practical, functional, good looking phone .
  • Cons: A bit outdated .  .  .

Samsung N-500

  • Excerpt: I have owned this phone for well over a year now and it has done me great service. I bought the phone for £100 (on 02) and it has not disappointed me. Ease Of Use - The buttons on the phone do not stand out that well and can sometimes be difficult when texting, but apart from that, the menus are quite straightforward. Look & Feel - I think that the phone looks great! With its silver colour and blue colour screen, Samsung could not have made it feel much better.
  • Pros: Compact and good colour screen .
  • Cons: Buttons not easy to press .

  • Excerpt: This phone is small and very practical, has all your phone needs. I bought this a year ago and today its still an impresive phone with its great looks and praticality. I bought it for £100, but now i think its down to £80 with this phone people are impresed when i et them see it with its glow of the bue light it sands out from the cround rather than your advarge old boring nokia. If you want my advice then you should buy this phone.
  • Pros: Great fun, small, cool and all round practical phone
  • Cons: The vibrater and ringer dont go on togeather

  • Excerpt: I have Samsung N500, i got it as a present just ova a year ago. It roughly costed between £90-£120. It is a really fantastic phone. Some mobile phones have problem of receiving while In Idle mode. They drop signals and show as if they are out of coverage. But N500 has no problem like this. Features of N500 are limited but good. It is a worth buying set with blue light. LCD blue light is very bright.
  • Pros: small, ice cold blue screen colour
  • Cons: none really

  • Excerpt: This is in general a very good phone. It looks the business and performs as well. The blue LCD screen makes it easy to read in any conditions. Its features are also extremely good, witha good variety of games. The well-known Samsung fashing LED makes the phone look even better, especially as you can make it change many colours.
  • Pros: Cheap, Stylish, Easy to Use, Good Functions
  • Cons: Scratches easy, low batt life

  • Excerpt: I was actually really lucky with this phone! I bought mine from someone who had had it for a month and wasnt getting on with it! A the time, bout a yr ago, it was around 100 pounds but i got it for 50...which i thought was a bargain! What first attracted me to the phone was not only the fact it was very cheap for what you got but that it had a really cool blue screen!
  • Pros: Sexy and light and it glows a cool blue colour .  .  .
  • Cons: It wont ring and vibrate at the same time !

  • Excerpt: The Samsung N500 is a great wee phone for its shape, size and price. As new it cost within the region of £80 - £100 but my younger brother picked one up for £40 so I decided to take a look and see whether or not I would recommend it to other potential buyers. After testing the phone for a week I found although it was not the best of phones it was still worth the money I thought that I would then write a review on CIAO with my brother letting me of course after check it...
  • Pros: Stunning blue Backlight
  • Cons: Lack of Tones and capabilities

  • Excerpt: This is a cute little phone; silver and sweet as I like to call it. The services are very good on it. It includes standard mobile services such as WAP and voice activated dialling and vibration alerts. Everything available on it is easy to locate and the phone itself is a breeze to use. Never once have I had to consult the manual for it. For text messaging, it has a reliable and fast predictive text service and the ability to send and receive picture messages.
  • Pros: very light, good services, easy to use
  • Cons: quiet ringtones
