This phone I bought when the old cell was discharged every day battery. Learned that the Philips Xenium produces phones that can survive without recharging, and have excellent properties. Opted for 501. Design immediately liked it. Everything is simple and conveniently located, nothing more. Looks solid and more expensive than it cost. Metal cover, screen glass, not plastic. Beautiful phone conveniently lay in a hand. Camera, sound, Bluetooth, the communication quality at height. So just take it. I use it for 3 months. charged only 6 times, but under the condition that often used by java applications and listening to music. The battery if not strongly to torment can be charged once a month. Never appeared scuffs. Very quickly turned on and off. Does not slow down. Not buggy, never been rebooted due to unresponsiveness. Good display size and image quality. Easy and fast synchronization with a PC. A durable case. Of the minuses. Headphones need immediately to buy new. Pretty overall. The phone will probably appeal to those who like one piece body, long working time and availability of necessary functions.

Advantages:big battery, webcam, loud speaker, easy to use interface

Bought in December 2008 and is only now going to change.The main advantage – the charge lasts a very long time. When the phone starts to show the battery is completely exhausted – this means that you can still spend one or two total conversation for ten minutes or he is guaranteed to hold you till later. The second plus at the time of purchase – USB interface, but now it has become ubiquitous. Finally, quite strong. Otherwise, it saved my simple tastes, I just don’t miss a call because of the batteries.There are disadvantages due to the energy consumption: in bright light the screen is hard to see (in summer on a Sunny day is seen only in the shadows) ringer even at maximum volume is not audible (e.g. jeans pocket). As the exhaustion of the charge reduces the volume, so that the conversation becomes so good to hear.Firmware is pretty bad by today’s standards is below the level of criticism. Functionality is poor and uncomfortable on the design of the interface is also saved. For example, only three alarms, and everyone just plays the specified signal. People did not Wake up – so the fate of this. Initially it was noticeably buggy (though for me, as a professional and perfectionist), with age, the biggest looser among increases sharply. Regularly loses the SIM card (that is, accepting incoming, nothing about not telling until you notice). When an incoming with a noticeable probability (five percent) does not play sound at all or breaks it in the beginning. Buggy, if you receive a message (especially not all parts) during user’s work with SMS-kami. When an incoming call cuts down the game (you have to start it again).

Advantages:big battery

My husband bought a year and a half ago. The main criterion for buying was the battery capacity. Expectations met 100%. The battery lasts sooo long: a couple of weeks work easily even during active use. Simple and intuitive to use. Very durable: it fell countless times on a variety of surfaces, and to top it all the misadventures, favorite thoroughly so sat on it. The screen changed into a cobweb, but remained in place and the device is not affected. Certainly not too bright, the camera too leaves to wish the best, but for the price to expect anything else would be silly. Summary: a simple, but quite functional, reliable phone with very powerful battery.

Advantages:powerful battery, reliability, user-friendly interface

I have this phone for a year and a half, and now I wouldn’t trade it to any other, although the disadvantages of it, (where the same without them). Pros:+ battery is really long enough — if you use enough, can call one to two times a day, charge about once a week, or even two. If actively texting and listening to music-once in 3 days.+ unkillable metal cover-if you keep dropping on a tile, etc.+ two SIM cards.+ in text files you can make bookmarks.+ flashlight. I comes in handy.+ standard headphone Jack and charging(don’t know how it’s called, but it came up charging from my camera and books)+ brake.+ easy transfers -30C+ loud speaker+ drop in water 2 times — still alive=)Cons:- very limited memory for calendar entries.- for some reason, the characters icon is missing ^, although generally the phone will recognize.- button – Hoop, performing the role of the shooter quickly begins to fall off.- bulky.

Advantages:large battery, loud speaker, big battery, reliability
