Asus sells different A50 for different country!!!!
Over here in Europe its fully standardize.
miami_grl, 19 Jul 2010I've had this phone for about three weeks now. I've been calling (uncooperative)T-Mobile for ... moreI've had this A50 for three months now and everything seems to be working as smooth for me. The only PROBLEM with the phone is the battery.
And after reading some of the comments posted here i think every country and its standard(EU).
no secondary camera does not mean it doesnt support 3g or videocall.you can check out the dell fones it doesnt have the secondary camera option but has videocalling facility using the main camera.
IZZADIE, 30 May 2011i want to know if this garmin asus a50 have a video call support??This does not have video call support as this doesn't have a secondary front camera... read the Specifications... In Camera section, if it says [secondary] "No" then the fone doesn't support 3g/Internet video calling...
i want to know this garmin asus a50 cant make a video call or not???
The camera only supports QVGA (320x240) resolution, and produces quite poor-quality videos (compared to a Samsung Jet S8000)
Michael, 30 Jan 2011is this phone also good for watching movies and playing games? coz honestly, i don't use GPS.... morehi i have 1 and yesit is good 2 play games on ihave not yet played a move on it yet but if the game grafices r 2 go by playing moves shoud b good.
Telechoice selling for au$179 optus locked for 6mths. Otherwise, $80 dollar to unlock. Size and shape an iphone 3 copy. Performance though not better than iphone 3 but for this price you get to use applications and games from andriod market. Free turn by turn navigation with lifetime updates (iphone 3 use data). Well a typical GPS cost more than $100. Generous with accessories, comes with free car mount and car charger. Cons, abit hard to find other accessories. Cant find perfect case anywhere but you can still easily get screen protector (US$2), additional batteries (US$15), compatible case (iphone 3) on ebay.
The phone is great. GPS reception is extra ordinary. I can lock satellite signal in my friend's office(1st floor of 3 storey shop lot).
The only problem is when you create a new contact, it take more than 10 sec to save the contact. 2 of my friends A50 take more than 2 minutes. Sometimes more than 20 minutes. Asus should fix the bug ASAP.
Picked one of these up in the week from Dick Smith for $199 on Optus as previously stated.
What can I say? For the price its a revelation. Sits high above similar phones at this price point.
A genuine Iphone/HTC/Galaxy competitor for most things. Sure the camera's only a 3mp but at then end of the day, a proper digital camera is still gonna take better pics.
The design is understated, not ugly or cheap. Its not a flashy phone in the way it looks, something I appreciate with all the phone whores these days.
Screen is nice, not up to Iphone 4 levels of clarity but definitely as good as the Iphone 3. Android system is great as per usual with the phone wanting for nothing imo. Must be noted screen is a proper capacitive touch, not a resistive. Something that really propels user friendliness, ( I don't REALLY like touchscreens) and navigating the phone isn't an issue.
Navigation is impeccable as to be expected and nothing can touch the A50 in this area.
What it boils down to is not so much what the phone DOES do cause you know, you can see the specs, you know the OS and the features, its what it DOESN'T do....and that's annoy me.
Using the phone day to day is great, battery lasts a while (still a modern day smartphone, don't expect days on end), would say its better then an Iphone, making calls (shock horror) is fantastic, dedicated call button on the face to access this beats hunting through menus, texting is identical more or less to the iphone setup, challenging for most guys with normal hands but still doable.
I would rate this phone an 8/10, its got everything you NEED in a smart business style phone without the wanky "look at me" image that comes with the main stream phones. Only downside is lack of accessories on ebay and the like.
I expect big things from Garmin-Asus, to get a phone this right so early on is a promising sign!
Yep, Dick Smith here in Auz sel it for $199.00 unlocked. I have 2 of these and find them great.
Seriously the best smart phone I've had. My friend got rid of his iphone for one.
