Eten X800 Review

 

In 2007 we noticed stronger presence of different Windows Mobile based phones. The model we are about to introduce in this review, Eten X800, is one of them. Arriving as the high-end model of Eten, it is the first 3G phone produced by the Taiwanese...

E-TEN Glofiish X800 Smartphone

 

Lars has the E-TEN X800 in hand which carries all the features of the X650 along with additional 3G and HSDPA support.

All the way at the bottom is the Windows Start menu key and the ok/back key, and they share the same plastic details as the call and end call buttons. It's not that intuitive to use compared to other Smartphones we've used, and in all fairness we...

E-TEN Glofiish X800 with Windows Mobile 6 Professional

 

There haven't been too many Windows Mobile devices to come around with a VGA (480x640) screen. It's always been an issue of cost - adding a screen

VGA screen ; GPS/HSDPA/WiFi ; Relatively thin

Slow ; Only 48MB usable program memory ; Buggy ; No scroll wheel ; Battery life isn't great ; Expensive

If this phone was friendlier to me, meaning, it was faster, had more program memory, and didn't require a hard-reset (twice!), I'd be mildly excited about it. But because its overall usability is significantly debased by the slowness and bugs, and...

E-TEN X800 Blog 2: Wi-Fi = No-Fi

 

One of the biggest draws to all of E-TEN's devices is their radio offerings.  Since the very beginning of my association with them, they've had just about ever method of connectivity known to man jammed in their device offerings: Quad-Band GSM EDGE...

E-TEN Glofiish X800 - Windows Mobile Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

HTC virtually owns the Windows Mobile Pocket PC phone market here in the US. But manufacturers like E-TEN are hot in pursuit, and E-TEN's Windows Mobile Pocket PC phones get better with every iteration. They offer a few things that competing HTC phones...

Every feature under the sun in one relatively compact and slim device. Superb GPS gets a fix relatively quickly and holds onto it, even under heavily overcast skies. The camera is quite good for still shots. Excellent multimedia performance-- handles...

Slim RAM hobbles performance at times. Poor video recording quality

The X800 is a formidable Windows Mobile Professional phone that packs every available technology and feature into a relatively portable device. Even more important, each feature works well from the excellent GPS to WiFi to Bluetooth to the autofocus...

E-TEN X800 Blog 1: Radio Reception

 

Over the past week or so, I've been putting the E-TEN X800 through its paces. Having owned or used the M500, G500, and M700, I thought I knew what to expect with the X800.  The GSM radios in all three of those quad-band GSM phones left a great deal to...

Snapshot: E-TEN Glofiish X800

 

Yesterday at the CTIA show we spent a bit of time with the folks from E-TEN and their new tri-band HSDPA capable Glofiish X800 Pocket PC. The X800 sports an impressive spec sheet that includes a 2 megapixel autofocus camera and a 2.8" VGA resolution...

E-ten Glofiish X800

 

Can the Glofiish X800 give HTC a run for its money?

But that's not to say the X800 is short on technical ability - far from it. The X800 has more impressive business credentials, in many ways, than the more staid Asus. Notably it has support, not only for quad-band GSM and EDGE-enabled GPRS, but also 3G...

E-TEN glofiish X800 review

 

E-TEN might be a small outfit but it's producing some very nice handsets. The glofiish X800 has a lot of features that will keep you entertained and connected throughout the day but the relatively small amount of RAM and poor battery life might annoy you

GPS ; HSDPA ; Wi-Fi ; VGA screen

Battery life could be better ; Not enough RAM

If this device had moved into the mobile market a few years ago, it might have revolutionised the whole smart phone block. Looking at it now, among the high-rising N95 8GB and innovative TyTN II, we can't help but feel that it's just skipping down the...
