Good Points
Good camera, screen and batery life.

Bad Points
A little too big, too heavy part where the screen is, infrared only as modem, doesn't support email, the navi button is not visible at night.

General Comments
I have had a Sharp GX20 phone now for a month. Generally I am very satisfied with it. The thing that bothers me most is that when the phone is opened and I am writing, I have a bad feeling that phone will slip out of my hands because the part where the screen is, it's way too heavy. The second thing is that you can't write, send or receive email, except over the Vodafone mail. But this is useless for me. The third thing is that the navi button and two buttons under the screen aren't lightened at night, so you can't see them well. The menu's could be better organized, but you get used to them. You can't have access to the numbers saved on the sim card and phone. You have to choose manually which memory you want to use. Despite of good camera, the total memory is only 2.5 MB, so it is easy to fill it with pictures and especially video. It supports polyphonic melody's with only 16 voices, most other phone's (also much cheaper supports 24, 40 or more). The bad thing is also that you see anything on external screen, if you don't turn the light on. You also can't accept calls by simply opening the phone, but always manually. At least the phone's have a button to accept calls, or you can do it also with button on the side of the phone (if any key answer is on).

Read the manual again. You can set the phone so that you read both phone and sim card memory (phone numbers) together. Also you can enter the WAP address of your webmail service in the list of WAP/Internet addresses and then access it direct from the phone without using Vodafone's email service. If you use Yahoo for example, you can pull images off their site and save them to the phone. Images from anywhere on any subject.
