Rob, Torquay

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Speaker, camera and video are good quality, with a large file allowance - you really don't need anymore than this. Customising tones etc is very easy. Cannot fault the slide mechanism, unlike some phones in similar range which seem to grate compared to this. Bluetooth and infrared very easy to use.
Bad points:
Just a few niggly things - alarm tones cannot be customised, the camera takes wide pictures so the picture on the screen does not correspond exactly, just little things. The coating does seem to chip/scrape quite easily. And when you have the phone in your jeans pocket, it sometimes slides open as you try to get it out (unless thats just me)

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, Long battery life, fairly good camera, lots of features. Looks good
Bad points:
All Java software you download goes into one folder, be it a game or an application, this can make it hard to find what you are looking for. You cannot take basic notes like on every other phone.

Manufacturer's Description

Samsung Bluetooth accessories set your hands free
With the Bluetooth headset and the Bluetooth car kit from Samsung, you can have both hands free, making talking effortless and enabling you to stay connected anywhere, any time, and in any situation.

The mobile phone for every situation
With the D500 e-mail client, you can take your office with you everywhere you go. The 1.3-megapixel camera with an LED flash takes brilliant pictures and video clips that are great to watch on the incredible 262,144-colour TFT-LCD display.

Perfect connectivity for successful business
Synchronize your data with the D500 in seconds. Bluetooth, USB and SyncML DS make it easy to connect to other phones, PDAs, laptops, PCs, printers and, of course, to Samsung’s Bluetooth accessories, and to exchange data, pictures and video clips.

96 MB dynamic memory all the space you need
With its dynamic 96 MB, the D500 has the capacity to save, send and receive your data. You can either save up to 1,000 one-megapixel pictures, or up to 60 minutes of video/speech recording, or up to 20 MP3 songs.

Pause Life, Press Play
Never forget a memory. The D500’s 1.3MP digital camera with LED-flash snaps snazzy 1280×1024-pixel pics. A camcorder records for up to an hour, playing movies in MPEG4/H.263 format and video/MP3 files like a PC. Save it all with 92MB of memory.

Multi-Fun
The D500 is a bundle o’ fun. Enjoy music 24-7 with an MP3 player that carries 15-20 MP3 or AAC files. Stay in touch with multimedia messages using text, voice, music, images and video. Play favourite games, download new ones and access computer programs with JAVA.

Fashion Compatible
Fashion friendly, the D500 is the perfect accessory. Slim, 99g light and durable, it boasts semi-automatic sliding architecture that responds with just a nudge. And don’t worry. There isn’t an antenna in sight. Samsung’s Intenna technology has tucked it inside.
