It has the lowest average SAR (head and body) compared to all the other phones and that's enough for me. My Health is my top concern.
Additionally it's a slider which makes it stylish enough, it's screen is good and it's features sufficient.
It's battery is average and i could use an alarm clock i could customize to my own mp3 sounds and not these lame bird chirps.
I would rate it 4.5 out of 5. There are better phones out there than this but none combines most features with so much little radiation.Design 9/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 9/10

nice but not enough
I started out with it for one week ago. The thing that I dislike most is the battery, which does'nt hold too long..,I have to charge mine every evening.., and I use the phone to it's maximum then i guess; listening to mp3s
There are not enough features for me, and its too bad that there are no memory stick on it.., I have already filled up the internal memory on my phone.
Well, it will do well for most normal users, but I'll go further into the rabbit hole of mobile phones and next one is sony ericsson w810, I kind of miss ericsson: which i prefer before samsung.

Poor sound quality
Nice design, with a good camera, GPRS and Bluetooth. BUT I wanted two things - long battery life (I was used to 8 days from my Nokia 6310i) and good sound quality. This phone has neither. Battery life is 3 days, and I have to concentrate to understand what's being said. In a noisy environment (e.g. a car) it's sometimes impossible to understand a call.Design 8/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 4/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10

My cousin in Germany has this phone on an E+Plus contract. This phone has all the features in the world. The camera is excellent. We went to Paris and she took multi-shot pics of the Effil Tower and they looked as good as my 6.1 megapixel digital camera! Another great feature includes the MP3 player as well as the Video Player/recorder. The slide-up design is very easy to use, just gentle push and it slides up on its own! Great phone! I recomd it to anyone looking for a phone w/ great features. Plus the phone doesn't feel flimsy in your hand! Very well built! Good Job Samsung!Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10

a average phone
the phone looks fantastic and the camera quality is ok but the sound quality is very poorand i prefer my old nokia 6600 ,if u are after a d500 and are not worried about the price or the quality then go and get one but if you want a really good phone get a nokia 6230 or 6600.Design 10/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 4/10Signal Strength 5/10Value for money 4/10

Brimming with features however the one complaint i have is the lack of ability to move and file away images, videos, etc. like the newer Nokias. Could do with expandable memory too but its not the end of the world as it has plenty built in. Other than that, its an amazing phone.Design 10/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 10/10

The style of business.
The D500 has to be the best phone of 2004, because it has a 1.3 MPX camera and a video recorder that can recored 1 hour of footage. It has a 262K TFT colour screen and has a sexy slide up mechanism, bluetooth, MP3, voice clarity and a sound mate gadge. In other words it is fantastic!!!Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10

Hi Joe Utzi. You wrote that samsung is a 6th mobile you got in 8th month. When will you buy the next phone? I hope it will be soon. What money would you want for d-500, I would buy it man. Or rather what country are you from, because I cant buy it in my country (Czech republic). I know you may find all this crazy but I felt in love to D-500. Please let me know i you can help me somehow!!! Thanx a lot. Mail to: MTZ@likop.czDesign 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 8/10

Having tested the phone for myself I can say it is a huge step forward for Samsung. At last a phone they make that is full compatable with other models. Bluetooth and Infrared both Fully Functional! All this and many more features in a phone of that size. Also i must mention the large mount of memory 96mb user available(92mb+4mb for java games and applications) About time they also started including an mp3 player which they have been lacking. There is already so much demand for this phone and i cant wait to get my own. If you compare it in terms of features to many other new phones out there at the moment you really cant see it as inferior! Like I said its a Top Phone and the best Samsung have evr made! Only a few problems exist such as the lack of full customisation in the sms tones, alarm but thats all i can think of. Finally i have to mention the mega pixel camera, its quality is astounding and its even known to be better than that of the Sony Ericsson S700i! Imagine that and the S700i costs even more than it! Buy this, you wont regret it!Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10
