The Sony Ericsson G502 is a compact handset and is very pleasant to touch. The soft buttons have a pleasant wavy relief and they are large and comfortable enough. The middle button is of square shape and is separated from the rest with a red backlight, which at times looks like a joystick.
Underneath the handset, we have the numeric keypad. Its keys are wide, relatively easy to press and illuminated in white. Overall, it is very comfortable, but there are no shortcut indicators, facilitating surfing the Internet.
On the right side of the phone, we have the volume rocker and the camera dedicated button. The last one is extremely hard to press, due to its small size. The M2 card slot is located on the left side of the phone. On the bottom of the phone the charger and data, cable and handsfree connector and the hand straphanger buttons are located.
The pictures are not top quality and have poor detail. When taking photographs outdoors or in a well-lighted area the colours are real and saturated. Avoid shooting when there is not enough light. Camera comes without autofocus and flash. The Sony Ericsson G502 performs very well during a talk. The loudspeaker is a good and is very handy, as long as you are not at a very noisy place. The battery life provided by the handset is good.
There were no significant software defects at any time, during our tests. The menus were opening almost simultaneously. This is a prove of the good optimization of the device.
