Advantages: intergrated digital camera
Disadvantages: pictures slow when sending
Despite the myth I had that I could not work any non-Nokia phones, I went ahead and purchased the Sharp GX10i. (if its good enough for becks, its good enough for me!) At first it was a little hard to understand, but once you get to grips with the centralised controls its quick and easy to access all the functions, which include: Some surprisingly exciting games, changeable profiles, an organiser containing calendar, reminders and alarm options, phone book with massive 500 name capacity, and a thing I had never used before, Vodafone live, which is like internet but for your phone, sadly I found it very slow and not of much use! The ring tones are polyphonic and can be downloaded off the internet and from various numbers you can ring. The next main feature (which is my favourite) is the integrated digital camera. The pictures are obviously not going to be as good as a top of the range digital camera but are still very clear and detailed, especially outside in good light. My phone could store about 30 pictures, which can also be send to friends, e mailed to people and saved as backgrounds. The only problems I?ve had with picture messaging is that pictures sometimes take ages to send (upto 2 minuets sometimes). However, they can be send to any picture enables phone (i.e. nokias). All in all I would say that this is a good phone and well worth the money.
