Sony Ericsson G502


The Sony Ericsson G502 is a stylish and elegant 3G focused mobile phone. It comes available in a choice of two colour options both of which are stunning. The handset comprises a 2 inch TFT display screen, a 2 mega-pixel camera with video recording...

Sony Ericsson G502


The handset's display shows up to 262 K colors in the resolution of 240x320 pixels (2-inch diagonal, TFT, 30x40mm) - this allows accommodating up to 8 text and 3 service lines in most modes. For web- and mail-browsing purposes you can have more text...

Sony Ericsson G502 review: Web as you go


The newest member of the Sony Ericsson G-lineup was only announced a few weeks ago with a stark commitment to deliver great internet experience. We were more than curious to find if it delivers on the promise to introduce a much larger audience to the...

2" 262K-color TFT LCD display of QVGA resolution ; GPRS, EDGE and 3G connectivity with HSDPA ; Great web browser ; Great battery life ; Compact size ; M2 memory card slot ; 2 megapixel camera ; Media center ; Comfortable keypad ; FM radio with RDS ;...

Poor display legibility under direct sunlight ; No video-call camera ; No document reader ; D-pad takes some time getting used to

The market, at which Sony Ericsson G502 is aiming, is not really overcrowded. There are only a handful of budget handsets to feature HSDPA and at least decent browser capabilities. The strongest challenger is probably the Sony Ericsson K660 but it will...

Sony Ericsson G502 Review


Released back in summer, the G502 mobile phone can be considered one of the few pleasant surprises coming from Sony Ericsson this year. There's no point in denying that Xperia X1 has been the most expected Sony Ericsson device in 2008, but G502 has its...

Besides the HSDPA (3.6 Mbps) and Walkman 3.0 music player, G502 makes itself very useful through its long lasting battery and exceptionally good Access NetFront HTML 3.4 browser. After all, it's the features that place a phone into a higher-end...

The most disappointing things about G502 are the low quality 2 Megapixel camera and the small screen. If these two had been better, I think the device would've easily made it as a high-end mobile phone. The lack of any document viewer could be another...

The phone is extremely basic


This is the phone I was upgraded to, it wasn't my choice and I definitely wouldn't choose it again. The phone is extremely basic, there is nothing to get excited about at all. Even the games that are downloaded on the phone are all locked, it's ...

there are lots of good features in addition to the usual ones


The G502 looks trendy and up to date, there is lots of good features in addition to the usual ones. I find the track id option very useful, my one moan is the keys are rather small and I often press the wrong key. The battery life is ok but I do find...
