I chose this phone really for two reasons - firstly I liked Sony Ericsson, and secondly that I was informed it had a very long battery life.
But there could have been plenty of other reasons! The buttons are all very nicely placed on the phone, and it's very user-friendly. The buttons are also nice and easy to press (not too small or too close together!).
Not least, I was very impressed with the features the phone has. Obviously it's a Walkman phone, and it has a 2 MP camera (which is enough for an occasional user), and it can also do all the basics we expect from a phone. But very nice bonuses were the FM radio, and a pedometer! I had never thought about having a pedometer in a mobile before, but now I realise that this is an ingenius idea (nice to see how far I've walked!).
One can also personalise the phone so that the buttons on the circular dial immediately bring up a certain feature.
Not sure I'd go for a slidey phone next time, but I certainly would recommend this model for those seeking a slidey phone!

By Marty From SF HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 May 2008
It is a slider phone, instead of a flip, so I can have it open on my car's dash and it's slim to fit in any pocket. The buttons are small, but we are all used to that by now. Sure it also has the obligatory camera and video, but it is 2.0 mega-pixels which is better than most. It provides support for "PictBridge technology" so you can print your photos without the need of a PC, but again, 2.0 mega-pixels is good for the internet, built not great for printing out.

It is a Walkman that shuffles the songs with just a shake of your wrist. With the "TrackID" service, you just identify any song that you can hear by just recording a bit of the song (using the microphone, like at `Starbucks'). This features costs $3.99/month!!! Later, you can send the file for recognition. It gives you the name, artist and album right to your phone. That's cool.

You have FM radio access and a slot for extra memory for songs, pics, video, etc. The ear buds are actually good quality and are attached along with a microphone (for hands free or finding that bit of song). It has all your high-speed mobile internet access, web browser, email, messaging, Java support needs and plenty of the basic games and is "Bluetooth" compatible. You need to buy UNLIMITED DATA USAGE from your server which can be about $20-$40/month!

If you like listening to music while working out, the integrated motion sensor counts your steps, your calories and monitors your running speed, distance and time. Your workout results are stored in your phone so you can monitor your progress. This is free, thankfully.

There is even a calendar, place for notes, an alarm, a calculator, stopwatch and timer! There are plenty of good free ring tones and more you can buy on-line. There's more you can BUY!

But what I like best is this phone has one of the cleanest, clearest and brightest (adjustable for night) screens available. Great phone, but the extras will cost you!

The sony ericsson w580i is a brilliant phone, the shake control is a really clever idea, it has amazingly good sound especially as it only as small speakers, it feels solid, the battery life is reasonable but could be better. Why are people saying the camera is rubbish? I mean, you can choose how many megapixels you use when you take a photo, the outlines are funny and look good. The trackID feature is very clever, it takes a recording of a song you hear on the radio, and tells you what the song is called, who it's by, and what album it's on. So why all the bad press???? It's a brilliant phone.

Really nice little phone, well made, slim, pocket sized and easy to navigate. I bought it for music (apart from being a phone that is!)and i'm very happy with the reproduction quality, even the in ear phones are good, the but is the really nasty interface Sony Ericsson continue to use for charging and plugging said headphones into. No standard jack and you cant listen why the thing is being charged - thats a real design screw up especially for me because i'm always loosing the lead. Aha...... maybe thats it - it's just a great addittional revenue source, i'm such a cynic. The keys are a tad tight too but then again with my fingers so's a PC keyboard

This phone is aesthetically nice, I have this in the pink, and functionally it performs fairly well. I bought this as an 'upgrade' to the w800i, but aside from the fact that it is a slimmer design, it does not offer much more interest than that.

The camera is of the same picture quality, with the additional ability to record for longer video sections than the w800i. The downside of the camera is that it needs a much steadier hand in order to produce a good image.

The battery life is reasonable, but again, nothing to get excited about.

It has a 'neat' little function which allows you to shuffle the songs on the walkman, but only if you take the phone out of your pocket, press the walkman button and shake it. By the time you have hassled around with that you may just as well have switched the song through the normal route. I also advise you adding a phone charm before trying this function that way if you almost drop the phone, whilst shaking it around, you can wind the charm round your fingers so as not to end up with a broken phone.

It contains some games, but you have only about a minute of each before being prompted to actually download the full version - presumably for an additional cost.

The software of the phone is adequate but not particularly fast, and I feel that with time it will start to freeze, leaving the user with two options - either try and upgrade the software through your computer, or return the phone for a new model.

The button layout is cute, and you get little side lights appear whilst you have the flip open, but the buttons are probably too tightly packed for any men to use easily, unless they have delicate little hands. My husband definitely could not use it easily.

Overall, what I am trying to say is yes - it is a phone, yes it works, yes it has some extra functions - but NO, it is not a great phone, merely an adequate one.
