Samsung D500 review: Groundbreaking


Just name the key features: Bluetooth, MP3 player, very good megapixel camera, huge memory, and excellent display… That's Samsung D500 - the first Samsung phone, which will satisfy also the technically demanding users. This phone is Samsung's...

in the end of last year. That time I was saying that Samsung phones almost haven't changed during a year. If I would get a new D500 after a year, I would be thrilled how the Samsung has improved within a year. Nothing like this - it has not improved....

Samsung SGH-D500 (Tri-Band)


Overall the SGH-D500 has a lot to offer. Apart from a complete organizer with PIM functionality, there is the MP3 player for music on the go and Java games for entertainment at your fingertips. More importantly, the phone helps execute the basic...

Snapshot: Samsung SGH-D500


Samsung dropped a real bomb on the European market with the release of its beautiful new SGH-D500. The latest Samsung slider has not only a 1.3MP camera built in, but Bluetooth. Yes, you heard that correctly. It is due out later this year.

Samsung SGH-D500 camera phone


The Samsung SGH-D500 phone comes with a 1.3 megapixel digital camera which is protected by a slider mechanism that holds the keypad and the screen together. As much as this GSM phone is used for calling people and snapping photos, it can be used to...

Value for money: If you want top style from your phone, the Samsung SGH-D500 is excellent value for you. However, if having an impeccable 1 megapixel camera phone is more important for you than style, you might want to look at other phones with better...

Samsung SGH-D500


Samsung SGH-D500: There is nothing more proud for a cell phone manufacturer than its cell phone winning a GSM Association Award for the Best Mobile Handset. SGH-D500 is one of those cell phones which Samsung is proud to manufacture.

The overall performance of Samsung D500 is great. The tri band impressed GSM Association more because of its style and looks, than its specifications and variety of features. Anyhow, we will stick to the judgment of GSM Association as D500 one of the...

The D500 is equipped with 80Mb shared internal memory which can be used for saving those high quality mega pixel images or for saving your favorite albums on. A groovy flash is also included on the Samsung D500 so that you can take pictures in the dark...

Samsung D500


Before the release of this phone, Samsung were not renowned for their mobiles, but in the producing D500, they have clearly put themselves on the map ...

Bright and clear screen, easy-to-use interface, 1.3 megapixel camera with flash, sturdy build, impressive features list

Hard to keep free of fingerprints, no voice dialing, poor battery life, connector cover not attached

The D500 is an excellent mobile handset and comes highly recommended. It is packed full of features and offers an impressive camera, but the battery life is substantially poorer than most other models.

Samsung SGH D500 mobile phone - Pocket-lint


With the SGH D500, Samsung has begun to resolve some of the problems of adding lots of features to a phone without ending up with a dog's dinner of a handset.

Classic, sexy, black handset design

Price, battery consumption

This is another hit for Samsung to follow the huge popularity of its Olympics branded E800 slider handset. Whereas the earlier slider phone was light on technology, the D500 has Bluetooth, tri-band and a huge storage capacity. Adding features has not...
