Looking for some advice please, which cellphone to buy

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a new one, but have some doubts. My choice goes to Nokia N81, which isn't that expensive as other N models. Also have some interest in Sony Ericsson or maybe Samsung, but not sure which one. I still use Samsung D500, can you believe it. But what the hell, after 2 years works fine.

Want a good battery life, clear & good signal receivement and not to difficult in use. My wife use LG Shine and while it is not that bad, still not like it, because of slowness.

Your advice are welcome.

THX

Here they are:

Sony Ericsson W910i or else
Nokia N81
Nokia N82
Nokia E65
Samsung ??? dont know ???

Oh man, Blackmore needs more support! He has helped us out bunch of times already!

Of my experience helping out @ my friend's cell phone store (we rarely get good phones in Canada, except for Grey-market resellers - Nokia N series etc are rarely carried by cell phone carriers).

N82 seemed to be a great phone - 5 mp camera w/ one of best Xenon flashes in the market, coupled with fast processor makes it one of the best phones in the market. No complaints about reliability either. And Wifi Doesnt hurt.

E65 - I only had short experience with them, but I wasn't too impressed by its speed - due to slower processors (nothing laggy or anything, but slower in comparison to N series). Battery life is really long btw.

N81 is pretty good, but overpriced (in here anyways) IMHO. Fast processor helps, but 2mp camera is ho-hum, and battery drains quite a bit. Rather bulky as well

W910 isn't bad - but I didn't find much difference from S500 and W580. Crazy long battery life, being sony.

This may be no longer on sale, but I was impressed with K810 (not K850). Good camera, ultra-long battery life, good looks, and quality finish. And it's dirt cheap right now as well: ~230$ here now.

I can't recommend iPhone due to my hate for touch screens.

LG Shine is pretty, but I was unimpressed by its problems.

Samsung G800 is pretty darn good - pretty good camera with optical zoom, and looks good as well. Battery life is short-ish.

Oh, and I advise you to stay away from iPhone, LG, Motorola (especially Moto). due to reliability issues.

Just to add, I use Nokia 8600 Luna and pretty happy with it (looking good always helps).

Blackmore, PM me if you have any questions, and I'll give you a website for check cell phones out:
GSMArena.com - GSM reviews, opinions, votes, manuals, ringtones and more...
