Excerpt: Nogle gange er det svært at forestille sig, at der er noget overladt til mobiltelefonen erfaring, at nogle mobiltelefon eller en anden ikke allerede prøvet. Med alt fra mobiltelefoner, der ligner ægte digital kameraer (eller måske det burde være omvendt), at fuldt udbygget multimedia mobiltelefoner,...
Summary: The device has a price tag of 400-420 USD, which is a lot for this type
of phone. At the same time, banking on the emotional components, the maker
is not after tremendous sales of the S500i. The S500i offers a good level
of functionality, including all the essentials, and it looks beautiful.
Excerpt: Another interesting novelty inaugurated today was the S500 slider, focusing on the looks. Steve Walker, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson: “Our designers have taken inspiration from nature and the Nordic light to produce phones that are beautiful to look at and alive with energy.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson refreshes its mobile phone�s lineup every 2 or 3 months launching new devices on different markets and for different targets. This time, the S500i handset seems to be intended for fashionistas and is available in 2 colors: "Mysterious Green" and "Spring Yellow".
Pros: By far, the design of the phone makes up for all the major drawbacks that the slider might have. I believe that manufacturing a fashion phone might prove more difficult than producing a full-feature high-end phone. While lacking some important features, a fashionistas phone needs to have a rather...
Cons: I believe the most "unattractive" flaw that can be found in this slider is the easy to crack keypad. This is a major drawback (see the Nokia N76 case) that might force Sony Ericsson to entirely withdraw all its shipped stocks of S500i handsets or start mass manufacture of replacements for the key...
Summary: Sony Ericsson has sprung yet another surprise for consumers by launching the SE S500i that is, as they claim, a phone that will bring you closer to nature. This intimacy towards nature is embedded into the whole experience of the phone, ranging from the material used right down to the GUI.
Summary: Despite the polyphony being 72-tone, the handset does not provide a breakthrough in sounding of mp3 tunes as compared to other Sony Ericsson branded phones. The loudspeaker is average volume-wise and has a great deal of basses in its sounding, so the call is easily heard even on the streets.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson is obviously taking a lot of pride in designing their phones to look and feel really flashy. The S500i is no exception at all. It may look like a simple slider phone at first glance, but believe me when I say it looks nothing like that when it’s switched on.
