Mobile Phone Reviews
09 June 2009
The Nokia N97 mobile phone wins style points for its sleek, white design and pulsing light when the device is switched on. Users get a resistant 3.5-inch touch-screen and a subtle judder response when buttons are pushed. The screen itself offer high quality and a 360x640 resolution and it tilts when sliding out to reveal the QWERTY keyboard beneath, which makes video-viewing a comfortable experience. There's 32GB of storage, meaning users will have no problem storing all their music files, although there's an option for more through a microSDHC card if needed. The price is dependent on what contract is purchased.
Next up is the Sony Ericsson W995 mobile phone, which is a stylish device with an industrial feel and chrome detailing. There's an impressively-designed 2.6-inch 240x320-pixel screen and the slide action reveals a keypad with buttons a little on the small side. A Walkman button on the left of the handset moves the handset directly into music mode, highlighting all the relevant buttons with an orange glow. The volume buttons are on the right and some may find them a bit small and fiddly. Catering for the video-viewing crowd, there's a small kickstand that enables users to prop up the handset, while a 3.5 mm jack provides an option for the music fans. Once again, the price is dependent on the nature of the contract.
The LG GD900 Crystal mobile phone arguably seeks to define itself on the style front by offering a transparent keypad as a slide-out feature. The keypad is actually a fully functioning touch-screen, as is the three-inch LCD touch-screen that it slides out from, and can be used like a touchpad on a laptop, while controls such as a circular finger motion double as the zoom function on the eight-megapixel camera. Users also get the S-Class operating system that helps deliver access to things like Wi-Fi connectivity and HSDPA. In addition, there's an option to add a 32GB support card. The contract determines the price.
