Product Description

Product Description

With a stylish, smart and compact design, Sharp's GX10i (successor to the popular GX10) will definitely turn heads but has much more going for it than simple good looks alone. Weighing in at just 110 g the GX10i will slip nicely into your pocket without causing too much of a bulge and with features including polyphonic ringtones, a built-in digital camera and downloadable games is fun as well as practical.

Opening the phone's clamshell style case reveals a pleasing high-resolution (120 x 160 pixels) colour display along with a well laid-out keypad featuring a joystick for easy navigation of the phone's neatly executed menu system. The screen is capable of displaying over 65,000 different colours and is supplemented by an additional LCD display on the outside of the case, used for displaying useful information including caller identification. The phone's battery gives a respectable maximum of 250 hours standby time and up to 255 minutes of talk time per charge.

The phone's high-quality main screen really comes into its own when using the GX10i's inbuilt camera or playing JAVA games on the phone. The 110k pixel digital camera includes five exposure levels and a two-stage digital zoom and has storage for up to 80 digital pictures. You can share your pictures using the built-in infra-red port or via MMS (multi-media messaging). Alternatively you can link images to names in the phone book so their picture pops up whenever they call.

Built-in software lets you compose your own polyphonic ringtones, perform simple picture editing and manage your calendar. Text-addicts will be pleased to learn that the phone includes T9 predictive typing for speedy messaging while frequent-flyers will appreciate the fact that tri-band operation gives the phone compatibility with mobile phone networks in over 120 countries including the USA.

Manufacturer's Description

The Sharp GX10i is stylish, smart and compact. It is the second camera phone offering from Sharp in the European market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharptastic 16 Sep 2003
It's hard to improve on the all but perfect, but Sharp has had a go at raising the bar for its hard-to-beat colour camera phone, the GX10. The latest version looks different, in that it's 'graphite' (grey) coloured rather than silver and it has an improved TFT screen. It still features 65,000 colours like its predecessor, but they've tweaked the resolution to make the colours appear more vibrant. It's also easier to view at an angle or in direct sunlight, which could come in handy for viewing those holiday MMS snapshots.
An issue with the previous GX10 has now been resolved. A download on Sharp's site ([...]) allows you to transfer pics from phone to PC which you can then either store or send via email. Problems with digital rights management software in the past meant that the older phone, which won't accept the new download, couldn't distinguish between pics generated on the phone and Vodafone's paid-for pic downloads (from the last Bond movie, for example).
Some small but significant updates make a great phone even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous 10 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This is one of the best phones I have ever seen, I got it for Christmas this year and i am very pleased with it.
The camera is great, the photo's that you take with it are very clear and I must say they are far better than any of the pictures taken with my friends phones.
The games are great as well, the larger keypad makes them easier to play and also much more enjoyable than fiddling around with the smaller keypads of other phones.
Overall, a great allround phone with most of the features that you could ever want

5.0 out of 5 stars An all round star! 28 Jan 2004
Here we have a cool design which is top class.The digital camera is good to,without zoom its quality is superb and captures every bit of detail but when you use the zoom you get a kind of Blurr but still good quality.If you want to save them then you can store lots of photos you have taken,send them to a friend or simply save it as a background.The ringtones are good with the much hyped POLYPHONIC ringtones which are superb.If your after games then this phone can support downloads like 2004 games such as XIII(13)a platformer with great gameplay.If you buy this phone you have made a valued choice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars SHARP GX10i 11 Sep 2005
An excellent hardwearing flip phone if you only want to make phone calls and send/receive texts. The GPRS internet is good too.
The camera takes pictures that look great on your own or another Sharp phone, but they're not so good when transfered to a pc or when they are sent as MMS to a different make phone. Handset Manager software available separately (to send pics to your pc) is difficult to set up and get working and is by USB cable (the built in infra-red only acts as a modem).
I gave mine to my step mother as she only used it for making phone calls and she loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp gx10i Sharp or blunt 13 Jun 2005
By Joe
The sharp gx10i is an amazing phone, its unique style makes it like no other phone on this planet! The camera is an excellent feature and unlike other camera flip phones the sharp gx10i is extremely hard wearing!! Also a good feature that isnt often mention is its buttons, instead of being tiny and complcated like most phones there big and simple!
All in all this phone is mega,stylish and simple!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good phone 13 Aug 2005
This phone is one of the best I have ever had. That said it started crashing and I took it to vodafone and it recieved a software update. Never failed since that day. This is a common fault with this make of phone, the original bios wasn't written well enough, so sharp issued an update. Not a lot of people knew this and the phone got slated.
User friendly too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flip Phones at good prices 14 Dec 2003
i wanted a flip phone with a coloured screen and digital camera at a reasonable price. After looking around shops and coming up with prices such as 350 I decided to look on the web. To my delight i found a great phone at a great price this is the SharpGX10i, it has WAP functions a coloured screen a digital camera and its also a flip, this phone is a great bargain. This is the cheapest i have found this phone as it is only 199 and the deliver cost is free if you don't mind waiting 3-5 days or you could have next day delivery for just 6 but these prices can vary depending on the item you are buying. Also to get free delivery you must have spent more than 25
