Sony Ericsson S500i review

 

A sliderphone that knows how to attract attention

Novel colour and lighting combinations ; Swappable M2 card memory expansion option ; Good value for money features

No 3G ; Camera lacks autofocus and flash ; Plastic cover a bit squeaky

An attractive choice for the style-conscious, but leaves a bit to be desired in terms of features

A slider for every season? Sony thinks so, but is Sandra won over?

Sony Ericsson S500i review

 

Sony Ericsson has answered the call of nature and designed its latest fashion slider, the S500i, around flora and fauna

The S500i isn’t a natural born fashion phone and fails miserably at stealing the limelight from catwalk kings like the LG Shine

Sony Ericsson S500i review -

 

Despite basic features the two-megapixel performs admirably while the music player is

With a lightweight and creaky construction the S500i doesn't feel very robust

Sony Ericsson - S500i

 

You may think of Sony Ericsson's mobiles as either Walkman phones or photography-emphasising Cybershot phones, and it would be fair to do so. But there are other strings to its bow, and the quad-band S500i is ...

The features list looks impressive, but the camera is no better than average, the phone is short on memory, and there are some design issues that affect easy use.

Sony Ericsson S500i

 

There's more to a good mobile than just a pretty fascia, as Sony Ericsson well knows. The company 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

Excellent picture quality, Feature count, Ambilight, Decent price, Novel colour and lighting combinations, Swappable M2 card memory expansion option, Good value for money features

Viewing angle not the greatest, Care needed with some processing options, No 3G, Camera lacks autofocus and flash, Plastic cover a bit squeaky

An attractive choice for the style-conscious, but leaves a bit to be desired in terms of features

Sony Ericsson S500i review

 

Has Sony Ericsson managed to get 'back to nature' with the uber-stylish S500i? We take a look...

Bluetooth remote control ; Good quality of games ; 2 megapixel camera ; Mood lighting

Small viewfinder ; Lack of music functions

A fun, funky and neatly designed slider phone

Sony Ericsson S500i Review

 

It's a decent mid-range slider, but as a phone with style ambitions, the S500i doesn't have the X-factor.

Despite basic features the two-megapixel performs admirably while the music player is

With a lightweight and creaky construction the S500i doesn't feel very robust

Sony Ericsson's non-Walkman phones, particularly from the mid-range upwards, have always had cracking built-in music players.

Let's take a look at the functionality of these solutions so as to evaluate their potential

So the main distinctive factor here is the emotional constituent, specifically the wallpaper that keeps morphing throughout the day the flower either blossoms out in the sun or droops in the nighttime. In spring the sun is bright, while in winter it...
