but I better have poor pictures at night that just a black picture due to no flash.
It says on the home page that this phone is in stores now ? Anyone seen it on sale yet ? The only place I've seen that even mention which networks it will be available soon on is www.directmobilephones.com. They say coming soon on Vodafone & o2, but neither of these networks mention this phone as coming soon on their own websites. I'm hoping to get it on Orange but I haven't seen anything about orange releasing it.
I'm not too bothered about it not having a flash. I have a 6280 at the mo and the photos taken with the flash are poor anyway !
this phone sucks, it`d all be good but without flash light it is useless, u could only take good pictures with perfect light conditions
After reading the phones spec. I cant wait for it too come out; I am very anxiouse about the price, I expect it to be quite expensive, I cannot find any websites that have posted the price of this phone, so I guess I shall just have to wait and see
I've read the review on mobile-review.com. I still think this is sounds better than the phone I bought 6 wks ago - Nokia 6280.
Slimmer, smarter, better build and the camera is poor on 6280 anyway. The EF81 still seems one of the most appealing 3G handsets available in the near future. I beleive that if you want a quality camera then you still need to get a seperate digital camera. Camera phones at their best are still not that good in comparrison. I also have a SEW800i, which supposedly has the best camera available on a mobile available to date, I'm not impressed by the camera on that either. The autofocus is sometimes a pain in the butt. The 6280 camera is absolutely hopeless for close ups.
Anyone wanting to read a review about this mobile an to see it meets you requirments go to www.mobile review.com ,this might be BenQs first mobile but they better improve its cameras an screen pixels thats why Siemens never Challenged the others with there camera mobiles,
the phone is almost coming out in Belgium. Normally in a few days. The price should be 399€.
I saw this phone a few weeks ago and have been trying to find a high street retailer in Switzerland who may know a bit about it... alas even Swisscom raised their eyebrows when I mentioned the word "Benq". Am looking at comparing this with a Nokia N80(got to love their predictive text - they have that sorted). Anybody got any hints or tips that I should take into account? Cheers
According to the Carphone warehouse website it should be available in March sometime. I have been in the shop to ask for prices but they could'nt tell me as they said they only get there info on very short notice!
Cheaply made ? Obviously haven't read much bout this phone av you ? This phone uses just about the best quality materials I have seen ! Stainless steel, aluminium (black anodised), magnesium & mineral glass for the display. Yeah obviously ch3eaply made ! Doh !
Big deal! Looks dull,cheaply made and it's not a flipper. A 2MG pixel camera is useless and the sound of these mp3 phones is bloody awfull. Do young buyers have tin ears? Where's the diserning listener in the 14-28 age group that buys phones? How important is music to this generation anyway? This phone will fail to catch on I almost guarantee it.
this phone looks nice to me, does anybody know the release date? if the video of this phone is like on samsung d600 (352x288) i will defenetly prefer this one, so I'll be very pleased if anybody have information about the video recording, please!!!
Just spoke to Vodafone UK - they have never heard of this phone!!! I wish they had some kind of idea if they'll be doing this before I plunge for the 6280 which might become a mistake!
This phones looks and specs are great!
Siemens is from Germany and sold their mobilephone divison to BenQ from taiwan...
Just got my "What mobile" magazine an they have given a review of this mobile they say.This is impressively slim phone an appealing 3G phone that should establish BenQ onto the UK market,the only drawback of this phone was its slow response times,the multimedia features are impressive an the music player couldn"t cope with high volumes,the design is slick an accomplished an draw in a fair few admirers who have seen bulkier 3G handsets,scores Performance xxx ,Features xxxxx,Usability xxxx an Verdict xxxx all out of 5 not bad hope that helps people wanting this mobile
