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

In conclusion, the Portege G500 is a reasonable re-entry into the smartphone arena by Toshiba however to get the full benefit of the device it needs to be treated as a Toshiba Laptop companion as which it should be excellent.

Although Toshiba are a late entrant into this market segment, there doesn't seem to be an awful lot of competition to the dominant HTC. These two Portégé certainly seem competitive, and the fingerprint features looks to be very useful.. whether or not...
