Review Sony Ericsson S500i

RsGsm
1 April 2009
  • 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. It's unlikely to be a huge seller, so it should appeal to people who want to stand out from the crowd and own something a little bit special.

They appeal to those that want to celebrate their individuality and express themselves through their choice of phone”.

Sony Ericsson S500i Review

Softpedia
23 November 2008
  • 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". There's no telling if one is for men and another for women because the phone looks good in both colors and can be bought by either of the sexes.
  • 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 unique and innovative look, and that is hard to come by these days where almost everything has already been invented. Sony Ericsson seems to have some aces up its sleeve and ...
  • 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 keypad. Also the lack of a radio might annoy some users that are more likely to use the phone than the music player, which in fact requires the presence of a memory card that you...

Sony Ericsson S500i

  • 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. When it’s on, it’s really on. Take a look. Form Factor Yes it’s a slider phone that’s really smooth. I have to say this is really comfortable phone to use.

Mobile Review
11 July 2007
  • 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. The silent alert is of moderate power or even slightly higher than this, but even this admission isn’t an excuse for the cases when it proves too weak to be felt.

  • Summary: The S500i is easily one of the best budget priced handsets on the market, and has all the features you'd expect in a more expensive model, even if none of them are standouts.
  • Pros: It's one of the sexiest handsets around, Easy to use, Excellent call quality, Music player with excellent headphones
  • Cons: No 3G, No 3.5mm headphone input

Sony Ericsson S500i

1 November 2007
  • Excerpt: There's more to a good mobile than just a pretty fascia, as Sony Ericsson well knows. While Sony Ericsson has made a mint out of it Walkman phone re-invention and boosted its profile by introducing Sony Cyber-shot technology into its top cameraphones, its fashion phone offerings have been relatively low-key. The S500i sliderphone, though, shows that Sony Ericsson too can make something a bit flashy. Literally.
