The Sharp GX10 is a reasonably good phone for your average person. Although it looks very technically advanced, it is actually of the same standard as would be the Nokia 3210. It's no good for people that want good quality connections, good quality photos or a hard-wearing structure. (read more)

I've had my phone about two months, I didn't pay for it, it was a gift so I can't complain about the price although when they first came out I was disgusted. The phone itself is great, not too big, but not too small that you will lose it. As I mentioned the outer case scratches quite easily. The java games, ringtones and WAP are brilliant, and the storage is immense. Unfortunately I can't say the same for amount of SMS it holds... could of been better. The picture ID calling is great but... (read more)

The Sharp GX10 is my first flip phone. Good quality games camera etc. Compared to some of todays newer phones this was faster and a lot more reliable. The only thing was that the pixels made the screen look slightly blocky but as I said it was one of the first of it's type. I'd definitely reccommend this to someone looking for a fairly low priced phone that will not let them down. (read more)

With the exception of it's sleek design, compact features the Sharp GX10 has one major flaw and that is to do with the data cable and modem installation disk and this flaw really needs to be rectified. The problem is that with the new in thing being broadband you cannot get your modem installation disk to recognise that Broadband it is already installed and that your ISP is a Broadband network therefore GX10 does not run to it's full potential or do what it say's on the packet.

This phone is great in every way possible,
Colour Screen - 65,000 colours great for picture viewing and for gaming.
Poly Ringtones - 16 chords, not as good as some 40 chord phones, but it still is great.
Games - Three preset non java games, and one preset Java Game with downloadable ones via Vodafone Live! Fast and 3D
Stylsh - The keypad is very stylish and the outside is very futurised looking.
Camera - Cool and brilliant camera, resolution not too good.

Its hard to know where to start, ok well lets get the good points out of the way, loads of thought went into the camera and picture side of the Sharp GX10 Mobile Phone, its a pretty good picture too. Nice and colourful screen and games are fun when in your break at work or whatever BUT:

I bought the Sharp GX10 mobile phone and at first it seemed cool but Vodafone is too expensive compared to other Networks. You can not change themes and you area always stuck on vodafone own.The menu was first difficult to use but in time get use to the strange order. Most disapointing feature is SMS which only stores 10. It looks good and has a goood colour display (read more)

Having had the GX10 Since it first came out, I have seen loads of better camera and even video phones released since. I think it would suit the GX10's large colour screen better if it used an icon based menu like the GD87. The GX10 was the best phone when it first came out, but there have been much better ones since then. It was and still is a really good phone, but I think sharp brought the GX20 out at the right time.

When I first got my phone, I was impressed with its size and the way it looked. Finished in like a titanium grey, it does look the business. The screen is a good size and colors are strong. The camera is pretty good quality if, like me, you are only gonna be taking pictures of people larkin about. Don't expect digital camera quality but it does the job fine for general snaps. Having previously owned Nokia phones, the Sharps menu seems somewhat alien. Don't get me wrong, it is clear and easy... (read more)

I have my Vodafone Live! GX10 since February '03, the phone is good in attracting other people's attention on you. Its downloadable games collection gives hours of fun.
But the phone sucks when comes to organizer capabilities.
The calendar is poorer than poor (only 3 events per day, no reminder possible), the alarm clock is even worse (it can only be programmed 24 hours in advance, it cannot contain any notes so sometimes you don't remember why you set the alarm in the first place and the... (read more)

Everything about this phone is great! The reciption is amazing and GPRS is sooooooooo cheap! It has a very stylish keypad and screen. Vodafone live is great but can be very unreliable when vodafone is updating it. The ringtones surprised me when i heard them at first and the graphics are great.

I'm a Nokia fan and tend to stick to their phones but in the spare of the moment I was attracted to this phone. I've had my GX10 for 5 month now and I must say, despite its sleek looks it does lack functionality. Saving txt messages to the sim limits you to about 14 messages regardless of folder or settings. And there is no data management for Phone-Phone or Phone-PC. The predictive txt is slow in responding and is knows to skip key presses and it has a limited personal dictionary function....

If you're going after one of the new phones - GX10/GD87, I would defo go after the GD87. Pic quality is a million times better. Only drawback are that it doesn't have java so games are limited - if you use it for games this will be a big problem for you.
However, it is much easier to use, better software and graphics. The menus are far easier to navigate.
Besides, its smaller than the GX10, better build quality, lighter,...etc Far superior.

On the other hand the GD87 has lots of better features that interest me such as chosing the backlit screen colour, it is also smaller and lighter than the gx10 though i don't think it looks as stylish.

My previous phone was the nokia 6210, heavily laden with practical features to help you through your day but not really a hell of a lot of fun to own.
