Looking for a 3G handset which has a beast of a battery, preferably on PAYG but will consider contracts too.

Networks that I am considering are T-Mobile, Orange and Vodafone.

Try Nokia E90

Nokia battery life is eons behind sony ericssons.

The new nokia 6300 uses a battery from the 5 year old model 6100.

The new 8GB N95, is bigger to accomodate a large battery as they do not have SE's technological advantage on batteries.

So I am thinking that the Sony P1i is the way to go?

Any further advice welcome! :)

If you minimise bluetooth use, put screen timeouts on minimum settings, on any of the SE top range items, you should be happy.

I've become accustomed to carrying a spare battery in my wallet though and I cycle them every 2 weeks or so ensuring I empty each battery at least twice a month before they get a "memory" and lose capacity, which is the invitable end to any recharable battery, they have limited recharge capability.

Are these high end enough?

W850i - prob 1st choice since I can get it on PAYG
W880i
K810i

Never owned a Sony Ericsson!

K850i/K810i/K800/W910i I reckon are.

Not interested in cashback deals I take it?

Premium phones, which the K850i is and will be until next year, expecially on PAYG is a major rip off IMHO, easily £30-£50+ above the cost price on contracts.

TBH cashbacks require vigilance that I don't seem to possess! One mistake and you aren't saving money!

I'm investigating 3 at the mo because their direct deals seem legit and I can afford them e.g. that £15 a month tariff, obv u can't get a N95 or Viewty for that price! So best there is K800i (free handset, no extra monthly cost) + quidco :)

This may sound a bit lame but the reason I was mainly looking for strong battery life was Mobile TV and Radio/MP3 usage.

The Sky Sports Pack is only available on Voda, Orange and T-Mobile.

Cheers for the help schizoboy, I will leave you some rep in a mo!

Both of those, especially TV (slowness and **** res aside) will drain battery in any mobile, EXPECT to be buying a spare battery and getting into the habit of looking after them if you do those regularly.

I'm surprised K180i isn;t on those direct deals yet,
