  • Excerpt: "...on two different models. Samsung repaired it for free (it was in warranty and a manufacturer fault)- what happened was that after switching the phone on, the screen would freeze so that it would not respond to any buttons being pressed- be they for an emergency call or to switch the phone off. The only other problem I can think of with this handset is the collection of dust where the join for the 'flip' bit is, but you get that with all flip phones ...
  • Pros: small, lightweight, high tech
  • Cons: same manufacturing fault twice

Good Priced 3G Phone, Great Features

2 July 2007
  • Excerpt: "...to the latest handsets that samsung are making, although for a clamshell design this is one of the best looking. The phone fares quite well to damage, the black and silver do not scratch easily in pockets, although marks, scratches and fingerprints can all be seen clearly in bright sunlight. I did manage to break the cover for the headphone port when trying to open it for the first time and snapped half of it off, which did need glueing back together. The ...
  • Pros: 3G, Expandable Memory, Battery Life
  • Cons: No Stopwatch, Timer, Themes .

  • Excerpt: "OK, so I've decided to write about my phone. I know, this could be boring, so I won't be upset if you just click a "very helpful" further down, without having read the whole thing. I mean, what are the chances that the Ciao members rating this have any interest in my mobile phone what so ever? very little probably. So I guess I'll get on with it for those who eventually read this with the intention to renew their oldy and decide to invest in a very ...

Fantastic little phone

skimblet, Ciao
15 April 2007
  • Excerpt: "The z500 from samsung is a fantastic little phone that is packed full of features that you would not expect to find in such a small simple phone. The unit has 2 cameras 1 inside and 1 outside for taking pictures and video calling, it can also take video using the cameras. It has two colour screens both of which can display pictures from the camera so you can take pictures when the phone is closed. The buttons are fairly sized and easy to use ...
  • Pros: Small, Light Compact and loads of features
  • Cons: None that I can think of

The Z500- not as good as its relations

boddrick, Ciao
4 March 2007
  • Excerpt: "...as i know that previous samsung models include more than these. However, this phone does have a few redeemong features. For example, the external screen displays the time, the signal strength and the battery status which can be very handy. The bluetooth on this phone is also top quality. Also my phone package came with a free bluetooth headset which is also made by samsung and this is brilliant and would recommend headsets to everyone. All ...
  • Pros: 3G , dual cameras, useful information displayed on external screen .
  • Cons: short battery life and an absolutely pathetic alarm
