Sharp GX25 Review
The Sharp GX25 is a love-it-hate-it kind of phone. It has some great
features and some not so great ones. On the plus side, it's very lightweight
and compact, with an internal aerial, so great for keeping in a pocket
or bag. It's got one of the best screens in its class with 262,000 colours
and extremely high resolution (QVGA). You'd need to pay quite a bit
more to better the quality of this screen. It also comes with excellent
connectivity, including full Bluetooth support for wireless headsets
and data transfer, in addition to infrared and USB options.
However, despite these great features, the GX25 is sadly let down by
an average camera and miserably small memory - just 2.1 Mbytes. It's
a mystery why a phone with the best screen in its class is so woefully
unable to take better pictures and then store more than a handful. There's
nothing else that's particularly wrong with the phone, and in fact the
camera isn't worse than average, it's just: why pay extra for an exceptional
screen when the phone's capabilities don't allow you to make good use
Features of the Sharp GX25 include:
- VGA camera with 4x digital zoom and camera light
- Display: TFT, 262k colours, 240 x 320 pixels
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email (POP3)
- 40 voice polyphonic ringtones
- Java games
- Memory: 2.1 Mbytes
- WAP, GPRS
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 1.1 (voice & data), USB, IrDa
- Size: 23.5 x 92 x 46 mm
- Weight: 90g

for me, dont like the video recording tho its too short goes on for
about 10 seconds. i cant put mp3 files on it which bugs me. worst thing
about it is the memory. 2mb is not enough even tho i can put them on
the computer, i would rather have them on my phone, if i need to show
them to people and stuff. im looking for a new phone now cos ive had

Reviewed by TG from UK on 22nd Jan 2007
Had this phone for a little over a year. Generally I was happy with
it, as with other reviewers, the limited camera resolution and memory
are major drawbacks. The screen, ease of use and surfing Vodafone live!
where quite good. However this phone has completely died on me. I'd
expect much better build quality than this. Also note that the exterior
finish isn't great. The silver around the camera and the back battery
cover scratch easily. Glad to have upgraded.

I have had just a couple of problems with the phone... Mainly the fact
that it can only store a handful of photos and that's it. I have my
own digital SLR for times when I need to take a photograph, however
a "spur of the moment" picture is sadly lost - normally I'd resort to
the phone's (very average) camera to take a couple of snaps, but it
turns out that it'll say memory full and refuse to play ball. I also
find that the "Fine" setting of the camera's output still produces lots
of JPEG nasties and some horrible compression artifacts. I also found
that the keys took some getting used to, however ergonomics aren't THAT
bad. On the plus side I absolutely love the screen. The colours are
rich and vibrant yet still realistic. Also there's so much texture visible
on photos that it's a shame we can't zoom in. 2 years from when it was
released and it still looks decent and still has a higher resolution
screen than 90% of its competitors in the price bracket. Also, the UI
looks pretty cool but could do with some customisation as seen with
the Sony Eric. themes. They also didn't include a stopwatch which is
a shame but hey I worked around it by downloading a program from a 3rd
party on the WAP network. Ergonommics are pretty decent, but it doesn't
have any novel features to make it stand out, which is a shame. The
torch (activated by holding down the volume button) is excelllent and
is used very very often

I bought this phone last year off Ebay. For the price it was worth it.
The camera quality is fantastic and look great when you upload them
to the PC. It has a picture editor with different effects to choose
from and a melody editor. The downside is the memory, it is pretty small
especially when you're taking all those pictures and it starts bleeping
becuase the memory's full. But once you've uploaded the pictures to
the PC you can delete them off the phone and make space, it isn't really
the end of the world. It does look very stylish and sleek, not like
the average ugly antenna, grey, bulky flip phone. =P

I've had my phone for about a year now and am happy with it. I've got
the red one and it looks fantastic! That said I only use it for calls
and texts, and I use the organizer/calender all the time. So I can't
comment on some of the problems some people have been having with WAP
etc. I would say that I am a light to moderate user so generally charge
my phone once every 3 or 4 days. This is my second sharp phone, the
previous being a sharp gx30. I think that the interface is really quick
and easy to use which is why I have stuck with Sharp after having my
gx30. The only thing I would like to have had was MP3 playback capability,
but as I said, I got my phone a year ago and MP3 playback capability
was rare back then. So if you want a phone that small, light, easy to
use and you're not fussed about MP3 players, then this is a good choice.

Quite simply the worst phone i have ever had the misfortune to own.
Its a shame that 'poor' is the worst rating i could choose, as personally
i think its attrocious. The phones looks outdated, the keypad is impossible
to use, the ringtones, message alerts are the worst ive ever heard,
the video clips only last about 10 seconds, the camera isnt up to scratch,
the bluetooth connection rarely works, the phones reception is the worst
ive experienced and quite simply there isnt a single thing i like about
it. Its just as well that this was a replacement for a broken Sony Ericsson,
as i couldnt put up with it any longer than the 2 months i was forced
to until my current contract has expired. DONT GO ANYWHERE NEAR THIS

still 100kb cannot get you a 2 minute song in. and the quality is poor.

If possible I would have given this phone 2.5 rather than 2. I bought
this phone on contract after returning from Japan where I had a sharp
mobile I was very happy with. I primarily got this phone because of
its looks, I was aware that it didnt have the many features of my beloved
Japanese 'keitai' but as Id ceased using them a few months after getting
that phone I wasnt too bothered about that so the camera, small memory
and lack of mp3 was no big deal, but having a nice screen and good looking
phone was. Ive had the phone a year now, its worn fairly well and there
have been no malfunctions although it now has some visible 'bald' spots
on the casing and the silver foil on the menu button is peeling off.
Ive never got the bluetooth to work as the handset demands a code to
connect to anything, vodafone have been no help in locating this code
so I gave up. Battery life is nothing special and youll have to charge
it every day if you use it much for talking and play an odd game or
two, or every other day if you dont. The vodafone custom menu is miserable
to use (much like vodafone) and I really miss Sharps intuitive menu
design but theres no way to retrieve it sadly. The thing which has really
tired me of this phone though is the very s l o w processor. The phone
lags behind your key presses sometimes by several seconds. Type in a
number quickly and itll miss several letters even on 'maximum' speed.
The only time this doesnt happen curiously is when using predictive
txt (non predictive is as slow as everything else), and thank god or
I would have thrown it through a window. You can only delete individual
items or all items in a folder so if you want to clear out the small
inbox then its frustrating and laborious as the phone lags behind your
keypresses, taking an age to confirm everything. I would recommend this
handset for those who are looking for a simple WAP phone because of
its looks, clear bright screen, and functionality. But the slow operation
could well drive you to distraction.

However, camera is good and the screen resolution is very7 good good
colour displays your images very clearly. flash is a waste of time to
be honest unless at very close range. It is a good fone but really for

im in love with this phone! i got it in the week and have barely left
it alone! it takes great pictures (exept in the dark) bluetooth is very
useful and is an easy, compact phone to use. however...why are 2 out
of 3 of the games only demos! this has never been the case with any
of my previous phones, and the sound the phone makes when taking a picture
cannot be switched off, this isn't a major problem but just seems a
bit strange as even when the phone is on silent and you don't want people
to hear, they do! great value and no regrets. x

Had about 5 phones up till now. This has got to be the best one yet!!
Everything about it is spot on. It is so cool looking and small and
light. The menus are very accessible. Gr8 sound on it. Takes gr8 pics.If
I had to be really picky and find fault with it then it would have to
be that the connection for recharging it can be a bit of a pain to get
into. Apart from that? Nothing! I would reccomend this phone to eveyone.

this phone is an ok phone and has a brilliant camera! its like a digital
camera and if your looking for a fone that takes good photos this is
the phone for you. on the other hand this phone has a voice recorder
but it will not let you use them as ringtones witch is quite dissapointing
but everything else is great its a brilliant 100% phone and i love it

Wow!! Deal !!! was the mental reaction as soon as i flipped it open.
It was love at first sight, I am happy using it, fatastic phone. But
as with love at first sight, you miss small weaknesses. Where is lacks
is 3 places - No MP3 capability, Recorded sound cannot be used as ringtone,
Too small internal memory and no memory card slot which means you have
to be close to laptop as you go on shooting photos Vikrant Dhoke email@example.com

Small, light and good size screen,,, thats the plus's done with... Had
the phone for 1week before the battery stand-by life diminished 2 a
couple of days. Camera, not that great especially indoors. The flash/light,
complete waste of time, couldn't light the inside if a match box.!!!
Sound is of a poor quality to and the speaker viabrates. It plays lots
of audio file types but you can not use most of them for ringtones etc.
The reception is ok, but not of a Nokia standard. OK phone but it quickly
loses the "new phone shine"

This is a fantastic phone because it's got a very good, clear camera
and video. It also allows you to listen to your own voice or you can
record songs or other peoples voices. I give a five star because it
really is SHARP! The colour is lovley and the phone will still be popular
in 2012. It's worth buying so money well spent!!!!!!!!!! E. Williams.

Phone has all the benefits already listed but texting is a nightmare.
The keys don't register each stroke so I have to go back and edit the
spelling mistakes when Ive finished. I would think it was just me but
haven't had this problem with other phones Ive owned.

Having had the GX20 which had an absolute gem of a camera on it was
expecting similiar on this but no still the colours on the '25 stand
out big time. Bluetooth is good for drivers or sending stuff ! Can be
slippy (it has slipped out of my hand) - looks great and is JUST on
the edge of being a complete GIRLY phone ! Can also be a bit of a pain
to open with it being soo smooth and for this reason I could probably
get away with a GX15 ? But I wouldnt have a light ! As has been said
MORE memory would give this MORE + yet cant see why Sharp/Voda' dont
include about 5MB instead of about the 2MB you get. The Blue display
is really attractive a ploy loaned from Samsung ? Not needed are the
Profiles or the amount (5) just 3 or so would do ! Sound is VERY loud.
The circular button/s is very interesting with 4 buttons to press and
activate various applications once you've clicked on click-ons applications
within menu's. The WAPs good and have had it for 4months now since then
have also bought a copy spare batt. as Sharps aren't that good for charge
time and the lasting of it. Their is a genuine sharp mobile battery
XN-1BT31 for the person wanting extended talk time but these cost !
Still its a great handset.

Impressive phone let down by the shamefully small amount of memory,
just over 2Mb. One of the lightest phones I've ever held but looks a
bit too 'minimalist' for me. Ringtones sound a little too tiny for me
however you can browse just about all normal websites with it. The picture
and screen quality are very good and it also has a flash - well, I call
it a flash, it's a bright white LED which stays on for as long as you
need it. Annoyingly the light stays on when it's charging which can
be a bit of a pain if you charge it at night in your room. Not a bad
phone though. Bluetooth kills the battery.

This is a brillant phone. With features that include a digital camera
with flash, video camera, infrared and bluetooth. The only bad thing
about the phone is that it doesn't have a active flip which is weird
as that's why these types of phones where mad in the first place. Overall
it is a fantastic phone.
