I think youd be very hard pushed to find a better phone for £129. The only downside is the camera is poor but camera phones even the 3+MP high end ones are still overall v.poor quality compared to your average dedicated cam. Oh and you CAN NOT change the message tone, a minor quibble really.
Mp3, mp3 ringtones, video, high quality screen, clam design - all excellent.
Text has iTap which is OK but better off in my opinion.
I have ordered my o2x3 yesterday and i am awaiting delivery. as i am a impulse buyer i did not read this before and are concerned that there are still so many problems.
I currently have the panasonic gd87 with great pic quility. Do anyone know the differenace in these phone quility?
Also wondering how the text works, is it t9?
All comments would be greatfully accepted.
Well... looks like we have a faulty handset again, which somehow makes the entire X3 Range crap ??? WTF??
"I'll be blunt, the specifications sell this phone and it looks great."
"But when you get it you'll realise its rubbish!!"
Compared to £300-£400 phones, yes, OK its not as good! But come on!!!
"It takes a long long time to access your data"
Erm... wtf are you on about???
"you have to buy additional accesories to enable you to transfer data between the fantastic 32mb memory card and your computer"
Hmm... I sense a bit of sarcasm there... BenQ can't afford to supply you with a 512mb memory card! NO OTHER PHONE MANUFACTURER GIVES OUT MORE THAN 32MB!!!!
"10 rubbish ringtones and no obvious way to change them"
Erm, download new ones????
"Very difficult and slow message creating screen"
Well, your the only one to have said that!
"and an awful doorbell noise text alert which you can't change!!"
Well thats the only part of the message I can agree with...
"To sum up I have sent mine back to 02 returns."
Well, you chickened out, and I bet you spend more to get a better named phone... But the mmajority of people who bought this phone was on a BUDGET who cannot afford to go out and buy more highly specified phones! for ££150, its a steal!
Not the easiest of phones to get to grips with, but the MP4 sample clip that came with the phone is awesome!! If only I had some MP4's on my desktop! (hhmmm!) The clamshell design looks sexy but the black top soon gets dirty and youll find yourself cleaning it down every time you use it. The sound quality is great making it ideal for listening to MP3's but no radio?!?! In summary if you want to stand out this phone is different enough to put you there, afterall if all you wanted was a phone you'd still carry a brick!
I'll be blunt, the specifications sell this phone and it looks great. But when you get it you'll realise its rubbish!! It takes a long long time to access your data, you have to buy additional accesories to enable you to transfer data between the fantastic 32mb memory card and your computer, no bluetooth, 10 rubbish ringtones and no obvious way to change them. Very difficult and slow message creating screen and an awful doorbell noise text alert which you can't change!! To sum up I have sent mine back to 02 returns.
"every other phone can send stuf via infra red !!! and u need settings 2 turn this on ... does any 1 have a site where i can put games on my phone thx ;) "
NO!!! NOT EVERY PHONE CAN SEND VIA INFRARED AND THEY DO NOT NEED SETTINGS!!!!
Person who was talking about not being able to send picture messages, I think that is a SIM card problem, as I am still able to send Pictures and am using my original sim card which I have had for 2+ years...
i dpnt like the picture quality at all. i like the messaging and the mini sd card the way it is. i like the style of it but i dont like the name of it.
turn off camera click then when your taking a photo make sure its on indoors mode unless your outside.hold the phone still for few seconds after you take pic then you will master it.iv taken some quality pics with it maybe not 1.3 mega pixel quality but sure beets the pants off sharp gx30
