Small but tough

duck1979, Ciao
4 February 2005
  • Excerpt: "I bought one of these in October 2000 (just to show how long this things been around), and it was my first ever mobile phone. I bought a Nokia N-Gage to accompany it in June 2004, but unfortunately the Trium Mars seems to have outlasted it. The screen is a bog-standard black&white jobbie, though I think Green&black would be a more accurate description. Don't under-estimate it just yet...... it does include WAP internet connection, SMS, a couple ...
  • Pros: Durable, good reception, value for money
  • Cons: hard to find upgrades, stuck with default ringtones, etc

Trium Mars Very Problematic

DJ_Stealt..., Ciao
15 July 2004
  • Excerpt: "I got this phone on the christmas of 2001. I no longer have this phone and here are the reasons. I had this mobile a month, then for no reason at all the keypad started working I thought it might of been a faulty phone one off. I took it back to the shop I purchsed it from and they happily replaced it for me, the second I had a week and the microphone stopped working. I went and got a replacement again. Then I had the keypad problem again. In all ...

A good first phone

5kutbag, Ciao
24 May 2004
  • Excerpt: "I owned one of these phones a good couple of years ago and, if I had the chance, I would probably swap my existing phone for it because it was so reliable and tough. Main points: It can take a beating- I must have dropped mine a million times, and even without the shock absorbing rubber skin on it, it didn't even flinch. The navigation is easy- This was my FIRST phone and I found it simple to use and learn the shortcuts. The games are ...
  • Pros: Small, Tough, Simple
  • Cons: Bland, No great features .

avoid like the plague

  • Excerpt: "Browsing through the opinions for this phone, I've noticed a lot of "very good" comments. Ignore them. They're lying. Of course, you wouldn't let me get away with a comment like that without good reasons, so let me explain. Features wise, the Trium MArs isn't bad for the money. Surprisingly for an entry level phone, it has Wap and a reasonably high res screen, but this isn't much of a consolation, as WAP is about as useful as a chocolate kettle. ...
  • Pros: cheap, WAP, predictive SMS
  • Cons: very unreliable, terrible battery life

Another mobile phone opinion

Kingseany, Ciao
15 March 2003
  • Excerpt: "Being the age I am, I've seen mobiles evolve from bricks (even concrete blocks) to matchboxes. I remember the salesman at the company I worked for in 1988 had a huge thing, wasn't even sure what it was when I first saw it. Then in '91, I bought my first, it was a tiny Sony, so cute. Mobiles still being associated with the rich and famous, people all around me wanted to hold it, touch it and droll over it. Occasionally I'd let them make a call. A lot ...
  • Pros: Works abroad, reliable, long battery life
  • Cons: Expensive to use abroad

Is there life on Mars

geoffduke, Ciao
14 March 2003
  • Excerpt: " I like this phone. It is small and stylish but it lacks mechanical robustness so you need to take care not to drop it.  The phone is aesthetically pleasing and works fine apart from the occasional intermittency, which I now seem to have resolved (see below).  There is no facility to load your own custom tunes on the phone, but I find the 'oriental' ring tone quite pleasing.  Not being an expert ...
  • Pros: Cheap light looks good excellent battery time hands free facility works really well in the middle of a table so several people can enter into a teleconference scenario
  • Cons: Prone to intermittency if knocked about especially the antenna connection keylock does not prevent other keys from lighting up your pocket and draining the battery

The Mitshubishi Trium Mars

baska, Ciao
11 March 2003
  • Excerpt: "The Mitshubishi Trium is a small and light-weight phone, it has many features, such as; WAP Internet, a choice of 3 moving graphics, speed dial, 2 very good games and much more! Regretfully, you can't download ringtones or grahics and seeing as how the ringtones on the phone aren't extreamly good, it is a bit of a let down. And unlike most mobile phones, the Trium Mars is not the most easy of phones to operate. It took me about one month, with help ...
  • Pros: WAP Internet, speed dial, moving graphics, small and light
  • Cons: Unable to download ringtones and graphics, can't compose your own ringtones, not very easy to operate

Keep in contact with the world

Servalan, Ciao
26 February 2003
  • Excerpt: "The Truim Mars is a small light little phone that came out about 2.5 years ago and was such great value that is still can't be beaten now. For the last 2.5 years this phone has been everywhere with me, from school, to work to France to Italy (twice) and to university. It is the best value item I have ever purchased, can you name another item that you would take everywhere with you and use almost every day? No? For a girl in her late teens a mobile ...
  • Pros: Cheap, works perfectly, good features, robust
  • Cons: No special features

Nice phone good features

Jamesrh, Ciao
30 May 2002
  • Excerpt: "The Trium Mars is one of Mitsubishis best selling models due to the simple fact that it was one of the cheapest phones on Pay As You Go with an impressive line up of features and specifications. The fun phone with serious intentions For under £40.00 on a pre-pay, you would expect a mobile phone with perhaps a few basic features but certainly not as many as this bright box of tricks offers. The phone is small and light, has a good battery life, ...
  • Pros: bargain price WAP clip on covers
  • Cons: slightley smaller screen then nokia but not important

Poor quality calling

Sugarlily..., Ciao
25 May 2002
  • Excerpt: "Anyone who tells you that the cute little Trium Mars is durable has obviously not owned it for long. As a tried and tested owner-- I've had this phone for 13 months, I now feel qualified to tell you about it. I paid £50, a relative bargain, and this was my reason for choosing the model. i bought it online from O2, nee Genie, and I love the tarrif- that's another story but I'll just say that Genie tarrifs were and are excellent value for money. I ...
  • Pros: Cute
  • Cons: Very poor durability
