I will love to buy a GX30 sharp phone from you.Bur first,i will like to know the method of payment.
That skater boy is a twat wasting all of our time with this pointless argument he's imagined up. lets just say the GX30 is a good phone worth buying if it suits you.
Well well well looks like skater you're out numbered and don't try to say your GX20's camera is better than the 7610's (or even 6600's for that matter)cause GX30's camera's only on a par if not slightly better.(never mind GX20)
And you're right sharp is not all about phones cause everything they do they're second rate compared to the likes of Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Philips and yeah NOKIA!
I work as a design enginner for cellular phones. I won't say for what company, but what everyone is saying is right and you're wrong. You said you know about cellular phone? give me a break! I work with circuit board level and believe me there is no difference in brightness or resolution between TFT and CSG. You make me laugh like you know every little thing on how the display screens are made. I test and do burned-in process in the engineering department with all the necessary test equipment and the data tells me that your eyes and my eyes can't tell the difference between the two, only in numerial data that the sensitive equpment gives me. you're such a pain on this forum. like all the other people on this forum is saying, stop arguing and move on and forget about the screen thing. I'm telling you from an R & D point of view for cellular phone displays.
what IS your problem skater42? like cellman, tealeaf, mike and many other keeps saying that you can't tell the difference between the two types of display! you're just going overboard with this display stuff! nobody can't tell the difference between the two types of display and your no exception! stop complaining about this issue and move on!
You guys are forgetting one major point:
SHARP is not about mobile phones. SHARP produces all sorts of technology as where Nokia is only known for its mobile phones.
The phones SHARP produces are excellent in quality, even though I give you right with the featurs.
I would prefer not to have a V-Fone branded device and with the features of a Nokia. But there are no decent Nokia Flip-phones.
I compared the GX20 with:
MOTOROLA V525, V600, V300, A920, A835;
NOKIA 7600, 6230, 7610, 6600;
NEC 525, 606, 616, 808;
LG 7020 (although its an STN), 7100, 8110;
SONY ERICSSON Z600, Z1010;
SAMSUNG V200, S300, S500, E700, T400, T500, Z105;
Now, most of these phones have pretty good screens. The Motorolas were the only one's coming close to the SHARP's quality.
That's my personal opinion, but I've seen them and nothing has convinced me.
I would choose another phone with more features, but the screen and camera of the GX20 and 30 are too good to let go.
It's enough to take pictures, play games and have good fun with it.
There is no point telling you about the differences of TFT and CGS because CGS is exclusive to SHARP and you guys don't want SHARP phones. So of course you'll defend your phone brand.
I'm open to any phone, just haven't found one close to the quality of SHARP (keep in mind, I want a FLIP-PHONE).
Trust me, I know about phones, and I know what *I* want! I've searched everywhere and decided that quality (usable camera, good screen) is all I want. So Nokia doesn't do it for me.
A lot of arguments here, its not that bad of a phone but just not the best.
go to www.mobiles4all.com Get this fone 4 20.00 just quote this referral id 18000967 when signing up.
Skater you ain't got a clue! this phone sux got it of vodafone 4 less than 3 days I took it back, no internet, can't add software. Big as hell just absolutely useless apart from the screen and camera Nokia all the way! oh yeh cgs is not better than tft
No its not too expensive because its not good enough TFT technology is better, its sharper because damn nokia put a shit low res 65k colour screen on the 7610 don't blame TFT and no I'm not a Nokia loyalist just read the SE K700 forum. Your GX20 screen??? what phones have you been testing then the old 4098 colour Nokia 7250 or something?!? lol.
If Sharp is banking on the screen and camera to sell the phone then thats why Nokia have always out sold Sharp by 10 to 1. SE S700 TFT yes TFT screen destroys the GX30 not to mention the better camera too. Forget this useless piece of junk and go for Sony Ericsson.
No need to be rude. If the GX30 screen is sharper, wouldn't that make it better than a TFT??? I don't need to argue with you about the 7610, one's a Nokia, one's a SHARP...they speak for themselves.
I haven't had the chance to test the S700 but when I get around to it I will.
Every phone I have compared so far didn't compare to my GX20 screen, and the owners told me so too. So there must be something to the CGS.
But you're just a Nokia loyalist and would never admit to that.
CGS is Sharps own invention and would therefore only apply to SHARP products. CGS is probably still too expensive to use for big screens, I don't know.
skater you idiot yes GX30 screen is sharper than the 7610 but doesn't mean CGS is better than TFT look at the SE S700 screen then you tell me GX30 screen's still the best anyway overall the Nokia 7610 is a much better phone than GX30 period.
Oh yeah its odd I don't see high quality CGS flat screen monitors about since its so good innit try comparing my 1600 x 1200 21inch monitor's pixel size to your sharp then lol you muppet!
does any one know what the sound quality is like in the mp3 player and how loud it is?
Ok, you guys haven't looked at a TFT or a CGS at the same time. As I said, the pixel SIZE is smaller on a CGS.
How do you think that a 2.2 Inch screen could have 176 x 208, but the same 2.2 INCH, CGS can have 320 x 240?
TFT is not the same as CGS and you guys just don't know how to tell the difference.
skater42 you can't tell the difference between tft and csg screen. you've gotta be kiddin that YOU can tell the difference! IT THE SAME THING, JUST NAMED DIFFERENTLY
yu can't tell tft or csg. human eye cannot detect that difference. you just think there is a difference!
Exactly Vodafone won't even let you upload java apps without going through vodafone Live! and why are you comparing the screen to a 65k colour screen try the SE S700 which has a better, bigger screen and a better camera too. And don't diss the 7610 feature and design wise it beats the GX30 which has hardly any features no 3rd party software?!? no OS??? this phone makes me laugh as you worship it, oh yeah have I mentioned its bulky?
