Reviews on INQ Chat 3G: INQ Chat 3G

INQ Chat 3G becomes popular and cheap INQ 1and put a full QWERTY keyboard on top. It’s a tasty addition like gravy on a pile of mashed potatoes, but the Chat 3G doesn’t live up to BlackBerry device which it simulates.

3G chat is available from £ 90 on a pay as you go agreement or £ 15 per month on a contract.

BlackBerry lite
From a 3G chat perspective, you can easily mistake it for a BlackBerry – it has a distinctive horizontal display and QWERTY keyboard. That interface has become popular with these phones from Nokia E71come HTC SnapBut 3G Chat targets Facebook addicts who prefer change rather than fit for business-satisfied email.

Like its predecessor, INQ 1, Chat 3G doesn’t smartphoneBut it comes pre-installed with a bundle of social networking apps that keep you connected on the go. Bright, simple and playful user interface, with colorful images highlight menu options. Navigating is easy thanks to the five-way function key, and although the screen doesn’t have a high resolution, the text is clear and easy to read.

Purty Qwerty
The addition of a Qwerty keyboard means text messages and status updates are easy to type out. The keys lack the angular texture of the top keys BlackBerry Bold 9700, and there is no space between them. But they swell like plush pillows, so we had no trouble pecking our balls at full speed.

For a budget phone, the Chat 3G is surprisingly attractive and the replaceable back cover is a pleasant classic.

On the other hand, you are limited with the basic apps that 3G Chat supports, so you can’t install the same range of powerful apps and games that you might have on your smartphone. We found that 3G Chat can be slow at times, taking a few minutes to record our clicks when using apps like Facebook, or browsing through customizable shortcuts on the home screen.
