General Comments
As most people who initially get this phone (Sharp GX30), I was impressed with the screen and the camera. However, after a few months of use, I want to go back to my SonyEricsson.



Firstly, the organiser is bad. You can't create reminders or have tasks. You can only have 3 items per day. It is very, very basic. You can't save a number to an existing contact!



Next, the phone will lose reception and you have to turn it off and on to get it back. This happens frequently.



It's such a shame it doesn't have proper Bluetooth. With object push, you could then share your photos between phones really easily. Unfortunately they haven't added that service to bluetooth.



The GUI looks bad. The icons are very poor, the menus are inconsistent. It could be more colourful and use the screens capabilities much more.



Finally, I have to recharge the phone EVERY day. Even if I don't use it that much.

Regarding reception, if you keep your hand away (hold it lower down when making a call) from the aerial its fine, if you don't it will drop a massive 4 bars on the signal stength to the point you can lose reception. Initally irritating but soon get used to it.
