General Comments
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 (slightly bigger than the GX20) but what do you expect with the worlds highest resolution camera phone, MP3 player and organiser?

It has a built in 2.5 mm jack socket so you can listen to MP3s in mono (or buy stereo headphones separately) and the sound quality is quite good, although obviously not the same standard as coming through an actual MP3 player.

The battery takes about 2 hours to charge and can last an unbelievable amount of time. I have managed to go a full day with calls, using the camera and messing around without the first battery bar to even move, whether it "jumps" quickly I'm not sure of yet.

Overall the phone is a very smart and sophisticated piece of technology. For those who'd like an expensive, good looking toy I'd highly recommend it however if you'd prefer phones that don't do so much then save yourself some money and don't bother!
