  • Excerpt: The Motorola A830 is one of the first third-generation (3G) mobiles to hit the shores of the UK, and is available for the bargain price of £105. 3G phones are seen as something of a mystery by many, and so, in my review, I shall attempt to explain about both the phone and the service.
  • Pros: Feature - packed, well - finished, easy - to - use, amazing phone .
  • Cons: Slightly on the heavy side, battery life isn't amazing .

  • Excerpt: As my ageing Siemens C25 was beginning to look more than a little tired compared to the current generation of mobiles, I recently decided it was time to start searching for a replacement for it.
  • Pros: Extremely capable and well - spec'd, digital camera, video camera, media player, 3G services .
  • Cons: Battery life and network performance don't allow phone to operate to full potential, size will not appeal to some .

  • Excerpt: Bought mine for £125 on 3-to-go (half-price in May'03). Was amazed to find 2 batteries, & SHOCKED to see a 32 MB memory card. (Most digital cameras come with only 16!) The INTERFACE is more than acceptable, with the middle top button bringing up a sub-menu for almost everything.
  • Cons: "No video calling"
