INQ Mini 3G - Pocket-lint


For those who want a compact and affordable phone, which offers the integration of the major social networks, then the INQ Mini 3G is well worth a look.

Social network integration, affordable, HSDPA

Poor keyboard, no 3.5mm jack, no FM radio, could take a step further with integration

There are things we don't like about the INQ Mini 3G when you stack it up against what larger devices are doing, but then when you compare it to some of the current offerings outside the "smartphone" category, it copes very well indeed.

INQ Mini 3G review


Is the budget Twitterphone trying to do too much?

Compact design ; Very low price ; Facebook and Skype integration ; Native Twitter client

Slow and sluggish UI ; Cramped keyboard ; Convoluted process to merge contacts with Facebook

A great budget handset that delivers a huge amount of social networking options, but is perhaps guilty of trying to achieve too much.

INQ Mini 3G review


The INQ1 ‘Facebook' phone was a godsend for the impoverished social networker – and now its successor has added Twitter to the menu

An essential mobile companion for the fanatical, cash-strapped social networker

INQ Mini 3G Review


High-end smartphones are continually offering more conspicuous integration with social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

The INQ Mini 3G is one of the very best phones available at its price point. It’s got a robust, fairly attractive body and a screen that trumps almost every other handset available at the price. However, you’ll need to sign up for some Mobile Internet...
