Okay as the only person here who owns one (Probably) I thought i'd give impressions LOL


The Screen is beautiful, large, clear, colourful.
The Swivel screen takes a while to get used to when takingg photos, but easy after a while.
The Twin Speakers make ringtones sound fantastic.
The WAP Browser is ultra fast.
JAVA seems to be fairly efficient (No Sounds still)
Volume in speakers is much louder than the TX115c.
Camera Has a flash


Camera isn't that great.
UI is slightly different to older Hyundais so if you are used to them it might take a while.
No External LCD (Might be a pain for some people)
The Brand name (eeew) ;)

Any Questions? Just ask and i'll try to reply.

the screen can fold back on itself and the orientation changes, so you get a hugenormous external screen (and no internal one)

Indeed, I'm not worried about it, but it might put some people off.

I found the ringtones to still be very faint...

On the upside the data cable used is the same as the existing TX-95 & TX-115. Although there doesn't appear to have been any sync software released yet.

I heard Pantech made previous Hyundi phones like... under licence.. but lost the rights to use the name due to less than favourable performance of the tx115c and the like. could be just a vicious rumour.
reminds me of an up spec g-trans * shiver *

Definately not, unlike the TX115c the TX130c is actually a good phone, i've had no troubles so far with it.

Speaking of Gtran my old phone just got Orange LCD Syndrome ;)

Both phones are made by Cruitel (or something like that), they are actually 2nd largest phone producer in south korea (hence why phones have an asian feel)...

I think they make pretty good phones, build quality is pretty tight, screens clear, menus good...

ive had my TX 115c and to be hounest it has its quirks but no worse than alot of phones out there. Just some issues with no vibra for txts unless on silent, and real quiet speakerphone and ringer... But i usually have it on silent (in lectures) so its fine...

the next model up from the 130c looks pretty cool, wonder if telecom will get it?

search for cruitel on the net to try get info
