nasty touch screen messenger in hand....
looks: the phone is good looking on indeed. i was expecting a thick brick when i heard that my friend actually bought it. The first look i have to say it is a good looking phone...although a little plastiky...glossy front panel complimented with the silver key are a real beauty.The phone is handy and small that snugly fits in ones hand. The back panel gives a rubbery feel to it.The phone was thick but not like a brick..just optimally thick for a phone with a full slide out keyboard. The front is mainly occupied by the 2.55" screen and the silver keys on a black plastic background which adds to the beauty of it. The back panel has rubbery , non glossy feel to it with the 5megapixel camera, auto focus camera and flash.
Usability: Well the screen is not very sharp or vibrant but is just enough for the 2.55" screen. The phone had android 2.1(eclairs) in it.The customm interface is not something great to boast on. Although its very intuitive it lacks some zing that you find in other handsets with custom interface. The main part is the multiple homescreen. then there are 4 custom options on the corner of the screen which is quiet handy. Another good part of the os is the timescape..it although integerates the facebook and various social networking sites with the contacts and messages it remains a seperate widget and needs to be opened and the worse part is only one widget can be placed in one screen so you end up having time scape in the second screen on a ,minimum basis.
screen: the screen is touch screen which is very sensitive..nothing new for a capacitive touch screen.
although just qvga it offers pretty good color saturation and looks but not very crisp..
speed: The phone is very responsive and is fast enough to eclair to run. it runs very smoothly and the capacitive touch screen adds to the charm.
keyboard:really good qwerty keypad. its really convex and round and well spaced. Its very comfortable to type, but shift key is a little to the lower left side and its a pain when typing fast....
overall a good messaging phone but the price of 16k although not very steep is a little off for a lotta people...

hi saz to delete txts select messages, select left button with 4 squares,2 options come up! delete several & settings select delete several option then tick the ones u want 2 delete, ok!
Just upgrade it to 2.1. And it will work just fine. Great actually.
With one big disadvantage though, it still can't install the applications in sd card. Still in the phone's memory.
Help i am a mobile phone virgin! Not a clue how to work my new phone! How o i delete txts? How do i get an alarm clock? So confused ( its my age)
I was disapointed that you cannot connect bluetooth to another phone only to hands free so transferring songs e.t.c is a problem and the keyboard is to small.
hana03, 08 Dec 2010hi, ive been using g705 and thinking of changing to vivz pro or x10 mini pro, can anyone tell ... morei cannot suggest vivaz for whatever. its sluggish/slow and touch screen is not so responsive.
X10 mini Pro is smooth and fast, especially with the new Eclair update. but im also apprehensive to suggest it to you since you said you use phones for browsing and viewing files. If you dont mind scrolling up and down and zooming in and out to browse and view files with the small screen, then you'll be fine with X10 Mini Pro...
I "highly" suggest you go to a mobile store and try both phones in person so you can have a feel on which will work best for your needs.
hana03, 08 Dec 2010hi, ive been using g705 and thinking of changing to vivz pro or x10 mini pro, can anyone tell ... morevivaz pro is sysbim as for x10 mini pro is android... i think u sld go for x10 mini pro if u don mind a smaller screen to view things.. ^^
hi, ive been using g705 and thinking of changing to vivz pro or x10 mini pro, can anyone tell me which is better in terms of a whole phone. i use my phone for taking pics, web browsing and viewing files...thanks
