Toshiba G500 smartphone - Pocket-lint


Wi-Fi, HSDPA, fingerprint scanner

Toshiba Portege G500 review


A well-specified smartphone with 3G, HSDPA and Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi connectivity ; 3G HSDPA compatibility ; Good quality 2-megapixel camera

No typewriter keyboard ; Handling peculiarities ; Camera lacks autofocus

A very creditable first attempt from Toshiba, with only a few niggles letting it down slightly
