Deal Of The Day - Sony Ericsson S500i - Free TV


It is symptomatic of the efforts that suppliers will go to to get your business that they are attaching a wealth of give-away technologies to a mobile phone contract. This is one good example. And more than that, this free TV is given away with a recently released handset which, in itself, is free. Add that to the attractively balanced tariff and you've got a good deal.

Look and feel

Its 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.



The S500i offers a two megapixel camera, built-in music player, expandable memory via a MemoryStick Micro card and quad band.



Unfortunately, the camera lens is pretty basic and there's no macro for close-ups or flash of any kind.


Battery life

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