GX25 and GZ200 are the same. The only differnce is the user interface. GX25 is made by sharp for Vodafone, while GZ200 is for a Chinese company called XERA. But basically, both phones are the same.
i have had this handset for about 6 months and think its a good enough phone.
It does everything I need a phone for !
like calling people and receiving calls on it too !! oh and it takes pictures :)
In answer to those shutter noise problems,
NO you cant turn it off, but you can change the sound, when you activate the camera, click options, and go up, you will see shutter sound.
Does anyone knows what is the diference between the GX25 and the GZ200?
Thanks in advanced!
I have used this phone for more than a month and i think it is great! but there is one thing i can't figure it out,how do you shut off the shutter sound when taking photos with the camera? pls pls help me! thanx!
Well, I have used the sharp GX25 for a couple of months now and I think it is a great phone. It functional features are great. Great quality digital camera, slick design and though it does not have an external antenna, its signal reception is great. I am happy the Irda and Bluetooth works well enough unlike some other models of the GX family.
Some complains I have about the phone is that it doesn't have active flip (that is flip open and answer a call), it has very low memory space hence I can't do some stuffs. I doesn't support some music file format like MP3 and it can be selective in terms of transferring applications via Irda or Bluetooth. Also during video mode active, recording is blurr while phone moves.
Generally, I thinks it is a great phone. I has my vote!
Hi,can anyone tell me if it is possible to turn off the sound it makes when taking photos/videos?? i cant figure it out, i think its a great phone except for the lack of memory but hey,nobodys perfect! thanx
And it is quite fashionable as well, although cant be compared with V3.
It is quite thick, buit I have never have a difficulty of getting it out of my pocket. The only problem I have is that it doesnt answer a call directly when I open the flip
Thanks for responding bak to my opinion. I think that your right how u said that the V3 only wins in design but isn't the sharp really thick. Does it stick out of your pocket alot? Have u had ny problems with this phone? Is it fashionable? Please write back, stef
I am cool. So is this phone. I want it. Does it have mp3 ringtones? Memory card? Any downsides?
I bought this model a little under 2months ago...Pictures are fantastc n compared to other models available(however it is my experience that sharp are one of the best for photo resolution).I have previously ownec two other sharp numbers including the relatively old model Sharp GX20. i have had many models and makes of phone over the last few years and in my opinion sharp is the leading manufacturer...notibly this model with it's easy to use style, light weight and high resolution.
I would definitely recommend GX 25
V3 only wins in the design. Inside, GX 25 is absolutely better. It has better display, camera quality and shape. V3 is thin, but it is too wide, therefore it is not ergonomic in our hands.
Anyway, this is only my opinion. The choice is yours.
Hi guys, gotta a tough choice to make......It is to get this phone or da motorola V3 can some1 help me with my decision.....thanks stef
You can see who is calling on the external screen, and you could turn it down using the side keys when its closed. So I don't really accept that as a valid reason why it doesn't have active flip. But like I said, its a great phone in just about every other respect. You'll like it.
I am buying this phone tomorrow. I have a friend who has it and they say the reason why it doesn't answer when you open it is so you have the choice whether to reject or answer the call or turn the sound down while it is ringing if you don't want to answer the phone. Makes perfect sense to me. Hopefully I'll like everything else about the phone, like most of you :o)
Could anyone help - I got my first wap alert on my GX25 recently and closed the screen without deleting anything and now the wap alert icon is permanently on my screen. I've searched through live! but I can't find any way of accessing the alerts and to delete them.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've read the suggestion on this forum but I can't find 'message' once I go to options in live!
I'm just waiting for mine to be delivered and keep being sick because I'm so excited!
I have this phone you can answer it pressing any key (I think). I always press the side button that says Answer. Trust me whenever you are in a group and you get this phone out and compare it to everyone else's you will always win. All the latest phones 6230 by Nokia which everyone has is not a patch on this, this has excellent video recording as well. Fantastic picture quality, it doesn't open as easily as a Samsung e700 though but other people are always jealous...
