Deal Of The Day - Sony Ericsson S500i - 12 Month Contract

Twelve month contracts are the best choice for anyone looking for a new mobile contract. They provide you with the least commitment and allow you to quickly move through the term to take advantage of a new deal as soon as possible. Operators know this, of course, so they tend to make such deals less attractive. Not this example, however, which saves you a whopping £270 over the contract life. An emormous sum for such a short contract term with a new generation handset.

Look and feel

The S500i is a slider-style fashion phone with a sleek black finish and customers can choose a spring yellow or (our preference) a mysterious green trim.


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.



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.
