"Phone turns heads, but is lacking in performance"
6 February 2009
Pros: The s500i supports a lot of my music, and plays it well, and can be customized to fit almost anyone with the ability to change themes. Also, the ability to play with pictures and create your own songs in photodj and musicdj is great when you're bored
Cons: The random opening of the web browser, 1/2-1 second delay on every button press, shutting down on its own from time to time, and the 8 or 9 useless menu items all add up to a big hassle that could have been solved with a few more weeks in development
Summary: This cell phone look and feel nice, however the buttons are little fragile. I bought this phone for my wife two months ago. The number 2 button broke down the middle after a month. The phone features are nice, no radio, and no cool video software, but have other features to make up for those shortcomings
"Cool phone with great features but is a piece of crap!!"

Pros: It has good features and has great graffics. The camera has many cool options with fun accesories. The camera has a micro sd card so you can have many pictures in the phone. The is the capibilty to blog right from your phone and the internet is great
Cons: The keys cracked with in six months after the Sony Ericsson guy promised me the wouldn't. The interal parts of the phone flaked out for the second time causing the screen to go blank, flip upside down and do weird colors and lines on the screen.
Excerpt: love the phone ! However after three days i noticed that the keys began to crack ! The '1' key completly fell off meaning i had to go through the trouble of sending it back off where they replaced it without a problem. After recieving my new phone three to four weeks onwards all the keys had cracked again and the star key fell off i am now in the process of trying to sort out my phone! apart from the key pad i would rate the S500i highly !
Excerpt: This is such a beautiful phone but the cracking keypad ruins it. I have returned three of them now and had a lot of trouble getting the supplier to take the first one back. Sony are denying there is a manufacturing fault and they say they will charge for user induced damage if you send yours back. I'm so sad. Its such phone apart from that, but google s500i cracked keypad and see what I mean.
Excerpt: oh fine this phone is looking very luxurious, its fine edge looks cool and smart... if its price come somewhat @ 12000 i may buy it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but its looking executive in black................
Summary: I am a Sony Ericsson addict, this is the third Sony Ericsson I've had and I'm not giving up on them yet! Overall this is a nice phone, I got this for free on an 18 month contract and have been happy with it for the most part. I think the main attraction of this phone is definately it's looks, it's stylish and fun and I love the colour change feature.
