Look and feel

It's lightweight and compact with a slick slider but is let down by a 'plasticky' feel.

Ease of use

Sony Ericsson's neat icon-based user interface makes this phone simple to use. However, the keypad is a little cramped.


Offers a 2 megapixel camera, built-in music player and expandable memory via a MemoryStick Micro card.


The camera worked well in a good light but struggled under harsher conditions.

Battery life

As with all Sony Ericsson handsets, the S500i has a sound battery and 540 mins is an impressive talktime.
