  • 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. As 3, the new network on which you can get these phones, intertwines services with hardware so closely, perhaps this is appropriate.
  • Pros: Feature - packed, well - finished, easy - to - use, amazing phone .
  • Cons: Slightly on the heavy side, battery life isn't amazing .

Full Of Functions But Not Of Power

  • 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. Always one for something new, my attention was diverted away from the big mobile networks by the launch of Hutchinson's new 3G network, cunningly entitled 3.
  • 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 .
