I have a Sharp GX32 mobile phone, and people know it's different, but let me tell you, it's the best phone I have ever used. Well for one, I used the Sharp GX10 with Vodafone live settings and pxt settings; I rang up Vodafone and they enabled the pxt settings "I said it was a Sharp GX30". Ha, now I have Vodafone live, and I can download the same as the normal Vodafone live phones. I got a larger battery for mine as well. This was $100 cheaper. 10/10. This phone is great! (read more)

Had a Sharp since the GX10, Brilliant phone in most ways, slightly larger but you get a lot in it. Amazing screen and camera most of the time. Plays games well, and feel nice and solid.
Shame about no MP3 tones and the Bluetooth which is locked to hand free only!!! Also rubbish reception compared to GX10/20. (read more)

Overall the sharp GX30 is a good phone, it has wonderful features and is stylish but it's just too big. (read more)

I love Sharp phones so I decided to upgrade from a GX10 to a GX30. It is a very smart looking phone, the camera is fantastic, the video is pretty good too! The only bad thing I have to say is the fact that when a word isn't in the T9 dictionary, in other Sharp phones you can spell the word out and save it to your dictionary but on this one you can't so you have to retype it everytime you use that word and to do that you have to keep going through the options menu and select input method and...

The Sharp GX30 is superb. The camera is magnificent giving brilliant pics. The lights are really good for a torch and flash, the photo effects are good, bomblink is very, very addictive the video camera is OK and the outer screen is good. However the screen is the best ting about it.
The bad points are:
Bad shutter speed, Mp3s being in one long list so you have to scroll through all of them, easily scratched, alarms don't go off if the phone is off like the NOKIA 3510i (which... (read more)

Ordered this from FoneShop.com and had it delivered to me next day. 2 colour screens is a great touch and resolution on inside screen is particularly good - particularly when taking pix with the 1.3 megapixel camera. Nice to get photos that finally don't look like they were taken with a phone! Removable SD memory card is v useful for extra memory space. Only flaw is that it's quite chunky - but then what do you expect for a phone packed with this many features! (read more)

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... (read more)

The GX30 is an upgrade from a GX10i phone. I'm really pleased with it, it looks fantastic and is ten times better than my previous phone. Screen quality is fantastic, menu looks nice, easy to use, lots of memory and great camera. I only have one problem with it, I have an imac computer and am unable to download any of the photos I have taken (my memory's almost full). I bought a Bluetooth connector but no joy. Has anyone been able to do this? (read more)

I have had the Sharp GX30 phone now for over a week, and I think it is excellent! I am no photographer, musician or film maker so I found this phone to be everything I needed in a mobile. The picture quality for a phone is wonderful, you can take quality photos anywhere without thinking "Damn I forgot my camera" and also with a data suite be able to download it to your computer with ease.
I would recommend this to any phone user who is looking for a top quality solid phone with camera and... (read more)

Sharp GX30 - Bluetooth - only connects to Sharp headsets and in-car kits. Doesn't connect to PC's via bluetooth, so really, really terrible.
InfraRed - can only be used as a modem from a PC. So really really awful.
What's the point of having these features if they can't be used properly, i.e., so I can transfer on ringtones and wallpapers, remove pictures taken by camera? Really bad design idea by Sharp.
Buy a Nokia if you need to do Bluetooth/IrDA transfers. Or you'll end up buying a... (read more)

At first glance the Sharp GX30 seems to be an impressive phone. It looks the part and feels very well put together. Toys are in their plenty, and anyone who has had a camera phone before is going to be amazed when they use the GX30's.
The camera has several resolution settings, with fine and normal quality. It has several levels of digital zoom (dependant on the resolution setting) and has shortcut keys to access features such as brightness level, flash (LED) setting and viewfinder (main /... (read more)

Bought my Sharp GX30 when it was released, upgraded from GX10i. Thought it was a little pricey, even with my contract reduction was a shade over £200.
Was a little disappointed with only the one game acommpanyment. Also wish they'd allow more characters per text, I've done text before now, then when sending, is multiple sms (2-3+).
Good phone all-in-all. (read more)

I had to wait to receive my Sharp GX30 for over three weeks due to nowhere having any in stock, was it worth the wait? Most definitely, this is by far the best phone I have ever used or seen (this is the first time I haven't had a Nokia phone), my girlfriend has the GX10 and that constantly keeps turning its self off I was worried this would happen to me but not once in over 2 months.
I took it on holiday with me instead of my camera and it was so much easier I have great pictures from the... (read more)

I bought this phone after reading a reviews on the internet, and boy were they right in saying that the Sharp GX30 is an incredible phone.
I bought my GX30 for £250 off eBay, brand new and unlocked, and I think it's the bargain of the century. My previous mobile was a Motorola V500, yep, it's a nice phone, however it was heavy, did not have memory expansion, didn't have an mp3 player, nor did it have a good camera. In fact, the camera on it was terrible.
However, me being a keen... (read more)

I bought this phone a few days ago now, and after using it for a while I came to the conclusion that it was an incredible phone. I have been using the features like mad. Before I had a Panasonic GD87, and I liked taking photos, but with the quality, there was no point in really doing so. However, now with a 1 megapixel camera, I find myself using it constantly.
I also put a 512 SD Memory card in the phone, (which I bought off www.ebuyer.com at a very good price!). And now, I store a massive... (read more)

I think the Sharp GX30 is definitely the best phone around and by far, this time next year it will still be a very modern phone. The screens quality is superb even in direct sunlight and the exterior screen means you can select a portion of a picture as a small wallpaper. The camera itself delivers what most people would expect from a budget digital camera if not better, I managed to resize to A4 and there was still a good quality picture.
I have heard many people criticise the phones size... (read more)

The Sharp GX30 mobile phone comes with the usual - phone, battery, charger, pc software cd, looooooong manual etc but unlike many older models, extended memory in the form of an 8MB SD card - upgradeable to a larger size if needs be.
I have only had the phone two days so i am only basing this review on the features i have used.
The first thing that hit me was the sheer quality of the screen, it is way behond any phone i have seen, apart from maybe the SE P900.

The Sharp GX30 mobile phone looks great but tries to be too many things. The Mp3 player is mono output (tried using a .5 jack)so you will need to purchase stereo headphones directly from sharp . Bluetooth is voice only. Using a higher MB SD card drains the battery. The menu system is difficult to navigate, its not possible to organise pics into folders and it seems to take the phone a long time to open pictures and applications. (read more)

This Sharp GX30 mobile phone makes a nice impression if you see it at the store. After using it for about 2 months now, i am quite disappointed by it.
The phone simply lacks some very basic features you would expect from every phone by now.
For instance, there is a calendar where you can make notes for specific dates. But you can't put an alarm or reminder on them. What's the use of it then anyway?????
There is a MP3-player, but you don't get a good headphone with it and the output with a... (read more)

I bought this Sharp GX30 mobile phone at the start of the week. A day after it arrived, I had decided to send it back. Why? Because between them, Sharp and Vodafone UK have crippled the phone so much as to make it nigh on unusable.
Firstly, the bluetooth implementation only supports the use of headphones, so no transfer between phone and computer. That will require an extra, expensive, lead.
Secondly, even if you have the lead, you can not install java apps on the phone this way. In fact,... (read more)

This Sharp GX30 is my second Sharp mobile phone, I previously had a GX-1 which, although it had it's faults, I was very happy with. On the strength of that and the new megapixel camera I decided to plump for another Sharp and I can tell you, I am very pleased I did.
The GX-30 has everything you could want from a camera phone. Starting with the camera - it has a 7 stage digital zoom with 5 different picture sizes, you can select from macro (close-up) or portrait (standard) modes, there is a... (read more)

This Sharp GX30 mobile phone has a great 1 megapixel digital camera, but that does not make it a great phone. The camera is the selling point and the best feature. Picture and 256k colour screen quality are excellent. The video capture is average, somewhat jerky, but allows you to take around 45 seconds of footage. Both camera and video uses the battery in no time. Infact the battery doesnt last well at all, ive been getting between 1-2 days on average. Its the other features that let the... (read more)

You will not find a phone that is better all round than this. i no longer have to carry my digital camera around with me to parties and such (which is always a hassle) as the pictures from this phone can be printed out as they are photo quality. also, the camera has many advanced options such as shutter...

I'm no gadget expert, so I need something easy to use, so when I first started browsing through the Sharp GX30 things weren't easy to find. But, don't let that put you off, once you've scanned the manual once, navigation could not be easier. In fact, it becomes one of the fastest camera mobile phones on the market.
Phonebook is easy enough, and very easy to read, but the camera is incredible (1 Megapixel). You can switch on the camera and take a fast shutter speed image in a couple of... (read more)

The camera is just as good, 1 Megapixel - almost as clear as a cheap digital camera for your computer! The front colour screen can be used as a view finder for self-portaits! Those of you who have owned the E700, you'll find the outer screen much better with 65,000 colour screen! It has 40-note polyphonics... (read more)

I have had the Sharp GX30 mobile phone for just over a month after replacing my GX10 with it on an upgrade contract and WOW!
I was expecting a good phone but this is top notch.
Where to start? Well the sound is fab, whether for ringtones, games or MP3, clear and crisp. The screen is clearer and brighter than that of my old GX10 and a little bit bigger too.
I was never a big user of my camera before, but the camera here is very good, clear pictures, and the... (read more)
