3G mobile phones: The best of the best

We take a look at the 10 best 3G phones on the market

Sony Ericsson W760i

RRP: $799

The first Walkman handset to be exclusively available on Telstra’s Next G network, the W760i is a combination of a smooth design and excellent build quality. Built in-GPS, good multimedia abilities and a great interface all combine to make the W760i an excellent all-rounder.

LG KF700

RRP: $699

LG is leading the charge against the iPhone with its Touch series, headed by the HSDPA-capable KF700. This sleek and stylish slider offers the convenience of a finger-operated interface, but also gives users a slide-out keypad and shortcut dial. HSDPA connectivity, a touch-screen Web browser and Bluetooth with the A2DP profile prove that this handset isn’t just about looks.

Sony Ericsson C902

RRP: $899

An impressive mix of imaging and phone functions, Sony Ericsson’s C902 sports a 5-megapixel camera with face-detection technology, autofocus and flash. This stylish candybar handset is also HSDPA-capable. It's also just 11mm thick! The large display works well with the phone's camera.

Samsung G800

RRP: $799

The first mobile phone with a camera that features optical zoom, Samsung’s G800 represents a huge step forward for the camera phone market. In addition to its imaging capabilities, this chunky beast is HSDPA-capable. The camera produces reasonable images and has a host of options, including red eye reduction, a self-timer, face detection and an anti-shake feature.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
