    what about an LG reina, i think it has the same video features the viewty did ie 120fps so u can get slow motion n stuff, its got a great UI too good for the net as its got a nice big screen :thumbsup:

    mobile-phones-uk.org.uk/
    testfreak.com is also a good place to start. they aggregate reviews from many sites all over the world

    personally if you want the camera it would be n96 or better still n97 (5mp?)

    i have just succumbed to the masses and ordered a new iphone, think it looks pretty good tbh

    samsung jet 8000

    stear clear of the n96 ..i had that and had 4 replacements in 9 weeks..kept shutting down for no reason

    Sony ericsson i've found have by far the best camera options + flash.
    Most phones that are any good for browsing the net at the moment won't have a decent camera :P
    C902 might suit you.

    Iphone is great for web browsing and media, but disadvantage is the camera. Samsungs im not too keen on personally. And apparantly the Nokia N95 8gb is better than the N96 according to reviews. It has a 5mp camera. You don't really need more than that. And browsing on the N95 8GB is pretty decent too

    you should get an ipod touch and a basic phone for calls, works out way cheaper.

    just looked at renoir - looks good , but do you have to use the little stick / wand thing ?

    that would put me off , if every time i texted i had to get that out ?

    iphone - Crap photographs, iffy internet with its low-res screen
    new samsung - there's lots...
    blackberry - the Storm looks okay, but is let down by having no wifi
    nokia n96 - 320*240 screen, which is tiny

    Screen res and size is quite an important thing for mobile web browsing. For the sake of comparison, here's how much info you can cram into 320*240, the n96's screen res

    The iPhone's 480*320 screen is slightly better, but still not great

    To get the closest to normal interweb usage, you'll want to get something by HTC, like a Touch HD, or one of their high-end phones. They have screens with 800x480 resolutions. The Sony X1 has the same. With them, you get much more. You also get fairly sizeable 3.6" screens.

    Regarding camera, I think you're going to get a crap camera whatever you buy. Phone cameras use cheap sensors, cheap optics, and cheap processing, so it takes ages to take a shot, and shots turn out rubbish in whatever case.

    n97 is the one you should get....good deal on this site at the mo

    iphone wins handsdown but the n95 8gb is als o good phone and you can find the cheaper nowadays
