I like my GX1

  • Excerpt: I got this phone after swopping my new Siemens A60 for it...and I definately got the better deal! It has a nice large screen and although the picture quality is showing its age abit now, it is still good for sending MMS's to your mates on! It has an okay range of polyphonic ring tones and the facility to download new ones via WAP so thats okay. Staring to look a bit large now especially as the trend for flip phones is getting stronger now.
  • Pros: Great all rounder
  • Cons: On the large side

  • Excerpt: I have had this phone for 9 months, at first it seemed to be one of the best on the market, now it is one of the worst. The battery life fell to less than one day after just a few months, the infra red has never worked, The camera quality is the worst out there, especially when the zoom function is used or the lighting is slightly dark.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Memory Capacity
  • Cons: Battery Life,  No Java, Camera Quality

  • Excerpt: after purchasing this phone as soon as it come out, i was rather chuffed when reading the manuals and discovering all the great things the sharp phone allows. and although i must say, this phone is a great piece of machinery, to me it actually runs to slow, just like a pc? Technology of the mobile phone may be increasing, but so is the speed in which your allowed to use these applications.
  • Pros: like a mini pc
  • Cons: too big

The worst camera phone on the market

Dawnlb, Ciao
9 August 2003
  • Excerpt: Take a look at the Sharp GX1 and you will see, that it has a slim design , not at all chunky as you would expect for a phone that has a small digital camera integrated into the back, not as lightweight as some but still not over the top and makes your pocket drag on the floor. First brought onto the phone scene by O2, but they are now wide spread to find on places such as eBay, unlocked and on all networks, so to find one on your network should no longer prove to be a...
  • Pros: small slimline and not too heavy .
  • Cons: over all not a good design and poor features .

Good but could be better

  • Excerpt: The camera is obviously not equivilant to a top of the range digital camera but for a phone it is decent. Fairly good snaps of the subject can be taken in good light and if the subject does not move. It has a decent digital zoom and the phone can store a great deal of photos. Also you can make people's photos flash up when they phone you! Not a great deal of use but very entertaining( for a week, at least.
  • Pros: Polyphonic ringtones, large screen, decent camera
  • Cons: Infrared poor, earpiece volume low

Sleek Sexy and SHARP

  • Excerpt: You could say that im a "phoneaholic" as i own 3 and buy new ones soon as new technology comes out. Previously i had an Ericsson t68, which i found dull and the colour screen was quite poor. So i wanted a new gadget, a phone with a digital camera. So in stepped the Sharp gx1 into my life. It is silver and black. APPEARANCE On first looks the phone appears to be quite big but actually i like to think of it more as compact. The phone is 13cm tall and 4 wide so isn’t huge.

The Blunt GX1... sorry, SHARP GX1

  • Excerpt: I DON'T LIKE IT! Ok? I thought I did but I don't. This was the monstrosity I purchased before I got my new Nokia, and I'm SOOO glad that I took it back. I never thought that i'd need to use 02's 14 day money back guarantee, but I managed to get fed up with this phone in half that time! Goodbye and good riddance. Ok, let's be reasonable. I'll give the GX1 a fair trial. I must have liked it once, right?
  • Pros: Gadget laden, slick looking, inexpensive
  • Cons: fragile !  poor quality pics, overall size

slightly fuzzy gx1 - updated

21 April 2003
  • Excerpt: ~updated february 2004~ I might have been spoilt before my new Sharp arrived, because I'd been using a Nokia 7650 for a couple of months, before camera phones and media messaging really hit the market in a big way, and in comparison, well, the Sharp is its very inadequate younger cousin.
  • Pros: colour screen, camera etc
  • Cons: not such great quality

Sharp GX1, too blunt, or so sharp it draws blood

olliejayl..., Ciao
11 April 2003
  • Excerpt: The Sharp GX1 mobile phone is sheer sex on legs, or so i thought when i handed the shop assistant £600 and got 2 GX1 boxes handed back. (ones for the girlfriend as i wasnt allowed to buy one unless i got her one too!, yeah i know, under the thumb.) Upon opening and the very easy plugging in and setting up, i faithfully pressed the power on button and watched the phone spring in to life and i was in no way dissapointed!
  • Pros: Full picture format support, built in camera, GPRS, WAP & IR Connection
  • Cons: Large compared to modern mobiles, display fails sometimes
