INQ Chat 3G review

 

Can INQ take on the BlackBerry range with a budget handset?

Native Twitter and Facebook client ; Good battery life ; Sub-£100 price tag

Slow to update ; Light feel in the hand ; Basic screen ; Severe lag at times

Although designed by a relatively nascent company, the INQ Chat 3G has a good hardware line up and a decent sub-£100 price tag, making it a really intriguing prospect.

INQ Chat 3G - Pocket-lint

 

This is a phone that will get you connected quickly and cheaply

Cheap, easy to set-up, well built

No Wi-Fi, browser not great, keyboard a touch tight on space

If you are looking for a simple, but easy-to-use communication device without all the hassle or expense of the App Store and open source operating systems, the INQ Chat 3G will do you nicely.

A full QWERTY keyboard enhances the overall social networking experience

The phone could do with a more powerful processer. As we opened more applications we did notice a detrimental affect on the overall speed of the device

INQ 3G Chat review

 

INQ have identified a gap in the market for a low-cost handset that focuses on core functionality without trying too hard to be a jack of all trades. The INQ Chat 3G is the filler for that gap. Accidentally dialling '999' when a...

INQ - Chat 3G

 

INQ has made quite a name for itself by putting social networking features into good quality and affordable handsets. Its small range is available via the 3 network in the UK. Now INQ has added a ...

Social media fans may be drawn to the INQ Chat 3G, and its integrated social networking applications are impressive. But the remainder of the features are middle of the road, so think carefully about what you really need and whether this handset...

INQ Chat 3G

 

A budget Blackberry that's all about social networking

Inexpensive, Qwerty keyboard, social networking functional, good Blackberry clone, push email

Massive lag at start-up, squeaky rubberised keyboard

that come along that happen to have social networking features installed and then there are phones that have social networking features at their very core. Inq mobiles all firmly fall into the latter category of handsets. Famed for producing the...
