Why Which? is wrong about 3G

Share

If you’re looking to buy a 3G phone this Christmas, Which? would advise you otherwise. The company has pronounced 3G not suitable for human consumption since there are too many problems with network coverage. The bulkiness of 3G handsets was also given as a reason to ignore 3G and stick to smaller, more reliable 2G handsets.

Thing is, it doesn’t sound like they’ve tested any of the newer 3G handsets, which are far smaller. Considering the extra stuff they can do, we’ve been more than happy to carry round handsets like the Sony Ericsson V800, the LG U8120 and the Nokia 6630. Our experience of the 3G networks in recent months has been really good, with both 3 and Vodafone providing reliable service. Granted, we all live in London, which makes things a lot easier, and if you live in the deepest darkest countryside you might have trouble making video calls. But if you’re a city dweller and you want a 3G phone for Christmas, don’t let Which? put you off. One thing to bear in mind, though, is that the tariffs and phone prices will inevitably go down in the new year. We also don’t really rate the phones they do reccomend. There’s no mention of the Nokia 7610, the Orange SPV-C500 or Motorola RAZR V3 handsets – in our book the best trio out there.

  • Dear Sir/Madam,
    I wish to make an enquiry on the said model of phone i saw on the site. I believe this is an opportunity i have been waiting for to embark on a nice business with you. However, i would like to know how you can start importing some of such phones to me so i will be marketing though i will first need a sample to entice my customers here, if you wish so too. I am a citizen of Nigeria and a graduate in Business Admin/Mgt with second class upper and currently deal on phones and assessories.
    i will really be very grateful if my humble request is granted.
    Thanks for your maximum co-operation as i am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Yours faithfully,
    Steve Eme
