Samsung SGH-i550W

Samsung S500i Cell Phone Review

 

At first glance the S500i reminded us instantly of the Samsung E730 model. With those smooth lines and a neat clamshell design, enveloped in a jet black finish - Very smart & stylish indeed.

Excellent

 

I had this phone when I lived in America and I only wish the American ones worked here. It was the best phone I ever had, if you can get it here I would highly recommend it! I loved the design of it, the screen stays safe from scratches.

Really nice looking, small and I love the flip design. Screen is clear and this phone has good volume and clear sound.

There was nothing I didn't like about this phone, except that I haven't actually found it here in Australia (had it in America and that one doesn't work here)

Bad

 

I would recommend never buying a Samsung mobile! We have gone through 3 in our house (why haven't we learned yet???). Every single one has died within 9 months of purchase. Most Samsung models are fairly expensive and so we have WASTED over 2 grand on...
