Theres too many new phones coming out! I can't keep up with them all so I need a little help chosing a phone that would suit me! I've been on loads of websites comparing phones but I just can't get my head around them all =O

A few months back I was going to go the iPhone route, but now I know theres better phones out there. I basically need the following things:

Required:
GPS or Assisted GPS or both
Nice User Interface - I'm fed up with having ugly UI's
Nice looking phone - same as above!
WiFi - need to connect to the internet/messenger/email through wifi
3G - same as above but for when I'm out and about
Full Qwerty keypad - physical or on screen, physical preffered but not entirely bothered
MP3 Player
Storage - big storage 4gb+ or allows for SD card (pref. HDCP)

Would Like:
Touch Screen - but not compulsary if its a nice phone
SatNav - tomtom application or some program that can get me from A-B
Camera - A decent one preferably higher res than the iPhone! (4mp+)
Video - Plays video

Max I want to spend is £400 preferably around the £300 mark but not compulsary.

Will be grateful for any recommendations =]

dya recon? I don't like the 2mp camera on the iphone (wouldn't stop me from buying it though) I just constantly hear people saying there are much better phones than the iphone so I wasn't sure if I'd be wasting my money buying it!

Personally I love it. Then again, I only use the very basic phone functions (call, receive,text) and the iPod part.
I never use the camera, apart from taking quick shots very occassionally and yeah it isn't the best camera, but it's still ok. As for the UI/touchscreen etc, that part is great.

Put it this way, I don't regret buying it, and will happily use it for the next few years rather than getting a new one after 12 months like i've done every year in the past .

To be honest, I say I want all the great features but that's only because I'm buying it, and I'll probably use them for the first fortnight or so, after that I'll most likely just use it like you do text/calls etc! lol

Lol, uh, no, but then again, they're totally different phones, and windows mobile sux.

The iPhone is 16GB memory by the way, so I say hah to your measly 8gb card!

Sorry Babbabooey - Please see below quotes from O2 website:
"Pay & Go customers can now enjoy the iPhone 3G without a monthly contract. The new iPhone 3G 8GB for Pay & Go will be available for £349.99 and the 16GB version for £399.99."

So hah you are wrong iphone is 8gb or 16 gb!!! but can you upgrade your 8 or 16gb to 32 gb??? No so hah back to you. Ask any Windows mobile user and he will tell you how easy and good they are! You will need to use the HD before you start comparing the 2 phones. The HD is in a totally different league!

Hey you two.. you both like your phones no need to argue about it lol I'll look at all that are recomended! Thanks zish uk =] and lol @ bigbob909 made me laugh wouldn't suprise me if they did such a thing =D

Any idea if the HTC Touch HD will come down in price, tis bit too pricey for me at the moment I don't fancy spending £500 on a phone! Looks nice though

You can pick it offline for around £420 on fleebay. Or can get it on a £35 per month 18 month contract for around £50. HD is exclusive to Orange but e2save seem to be selling it on O2 aswell. But an amazing phone and looks slick :)
